I have been Liebster’d! Thank you to Paula from The Value of a Moment for nominating me. The Liebster provides an amazing opportunity for fellow bloggers to engage each other in an ever evolving community. Paula has asked me to answer 5 questions so that you all can get to know my blog a little bit better. I hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to check out my nominees at the bottom of the post.
- Describe your perfect day.
Well if we are talking perfect, we are talking about waking up in France. I crave freedom from corporations. Blogging all day in a café is the end plan. The culture in Europe is so inspiring, living abroad is something I’ve always desired. We would definitely partake in the fresh markets and vibrant lifestyle, snapping pictures and living a dream life. Blogging will always be a huge part of me, so the perfect day would also incorporate some sort of giveaway to help my fellow bloggers grow their reach and traffic.
What is your WHY behind your blog?
I want to help people and I want to be independent. A blog provides the perfect medium for us all to do both. I originally started with a craft blog. Then I realized that a lot of people were trying to navigate their careers, while trying to become financially independent. My love of blogging, HR, and sharing what I know lead me to start The Rising Damsel.
What is the most impressive thing you know how to do?
Definitely not giving myself compliments.
What 3 shows are your favorites?
Bob’s Burgers. Louise is my spirit animal. My fiancé loves it too. At any given point either of us can break out in song and count on the other to complete the verse.
The Flash. Soooo many stories have been redone a 1,000 times. When I first watched The Flash I fell in love with the characters, then the storyline kept me glued to my couch for 2 days straight. I’ve always been a fan of more fantastical shows and movies like Harry Potter. With fantasy anything can be explained into understanding.
Everybody Loves Raymond. Debra calling Ray an ‘IDIOT’ is my favorite thing ever. Honestly that show showed me a lot about how to handle difficult people. It also showed me that people can argue but still respect and love each other.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at getting a gold medal in?
Being on the computer and working on my blog. Often times I have to peel myself away. Definitely wouldn’t surprise me if I worked on blog related things for 10-12 hours a day. It’s so easy to work on something you are passionate about. I know that with persistence it’s possible to make this a career. My gold medal will be my ability to work at home for the rest of my life, free of a corporation.
Here’s the fun part!
I get to select 5 Blogger’s who I find inspiring to share with all of you. Their blogs are unique, genuine, and I gain valuable tips, motivation and guidance from them daily.
