2017 Liebster Award

2017 Liebster Award — Glad to be nominated

In June 2016 I started blogging about my addiction and recovery from cocaine addiction.
When I left rehab the first time I relapsed so needless to say very little writing was done from December to June 2017.
Since then I have made a conscious effort to 2 at least 2 blogs a week and have had over 5500 readers in that time which I’m very proud about.

A big shout out to http://thewordymom.com who nominated me for this award. Much love

The Liebster Award was created to encourage new bloggers to showcase their talents.

Bloggers get nominated. Once nominated, they scour the web for bloggers who have 200 subscribers or less (that would be me, but you have the power to change that by clicking on the Follow button on the bottom right.
After checking out a load of blogs, these nominees pay the Liebster Award honour forward by nominating a handful of bloggers they feel are worthy of recognition.

As I said im lucky to be nominated for my blog Drug addicts are scum
So I would like to thank http://thewordymom.com for recognizing me as a Liebster Award 2017 nominee and invite you to check out her pages and give them your support.

When someone nominates you for a Liebster Award, you’re asked to answer 10 questions about yourself.

Ive been asked a load of questions so here goes

  1. What’s your blogging niche? Its simple really is about my battle against cocaine addiction. It makes pretty grim reading in parts, but its 100% honest
  2. On a personal level, what do you get out of blogging? Recovery, a chance to look at my own personal experience and develop myself as an individual and hopefully help others
  3. Besides blogging, do you have any other creative outlets? None apart from painting with my daughter (badly)
  4. If you could give a new blogger one piece of advice, what would that be? Find a niche, there are too many similar bloggers about, make sure its something you are passionate about
  5. Breakfast in bed, reading in the tub … Describe one ritual you cherish. Living by my timetable, I would be lost without it
  6. Who’s your favourite musical artist, and why? Queen – What a showman Freddie was
  7. Introvert or extrovert? Extrovert
  8. Dog person, cat person, neither or both? Doggies all day long, most loyal animals 
  9. Would you consider yourself to be a risk taker? Yes, by blogging about my addiction is a risk
  10. If you were being sent to a desert island and only allowed to take one thing (not person) with you, what would you take? Laptop

Now, it’s my turn to nominate a few fellow bloggers for the Liebster Award 2017.
