Natural Mommas Nominated for the Liebster Award!

September 5, 2014

liebster-award

Natural Mommas is happy to have been nominated by another new blog ‘The Herbal Healing Mama” for the Liebster award!

The Liebster award is a series of questions given from bloggers to new bloggers with under 200 followers. I think it’s a beautiful way to get to know other bloggers in the community.  Here’s the rules:

Rules:

1. Answer the questions given and then come up with 10 new ones to ask your nominations.

2. Nominate 8 other blogs, let them know you have nominated them and put a link to their blog in your post.

3. No Tag backs.

4. Nominations must have under 200 followers on any platform.

5. You must tell all the blogs that you nominate that you have nominated them.

The Questions:

1. What got you started blogging?

I began blogging when my son was born so that he would eventually have a electronic baby book to look back on.  Then after his blog was well established, I realized how much fun it would be to have another space where I could share my learning experiences from parenting, life and beyond.  So I started Natural Mommas and have diligently been working on it whenever I have spare time.  Recently I was finally able to achieve my next goal of having an Etsy shop to share my homemade goods with others.  Now here I am and ready to share more and share often with my readers and beyond!  I want others to learn how fulfilling and easy it is to make more natural choices for yourself, your family and friends.

2. From where do you draw your inspiration?

My inspiration is drawn from the many things I’ve researched and realized about how detrimental our everyday products have become for our bodies, the planet, and beyond!  I want to help put at least a slight dent in helping others choose a new, better path for a stronger, healthier self and more.  I feel that if I can do it, so can anyone else; it just takes a little motivation and consideration and I’ll help you with the rest.

3. What’s a day in your life like?

I live a pretty simple life with my little family of 3.  My son is the light of my life and my fiancé is pretty awesome too.  I am a full-time working parent as well as juggle the shared life-responsibilities with my fiancé too.  We live in a beautiful place where its sunny 9 days a week 😉 and the temperature is usually 95% perfect all the time.  We may suffer a little in the summer with some hot days but its far from any other place where natural disasters happen and the weather is far from predictable.  Best part is we have the beach, the forest, and sin city all within a short trip away….if only life allowed these short trips more often.

4. What’s your favorite thing to blog about?

I love sharing with others how I’m making better choices and saving more money for my family.  I enjoy letting know others how simple it is to also benefit and lead a healthier living.  I enjoy sharing random tips/facts/stories/and experiences, so that we can all learn together and strengthen each other through sharing and beyond! 🙂

5. Where’s your favorite place to be? Doing what?

My favorite place to be (if it were a perfect world) would be a beach someplace with beautiful picturesque weather.  But if it must be summed down more, it would be anywhere outside, at night, enjoying the peaceful sounds and feel of the night; with no interruptions from anyone or anything.  I am an only child and I loath for peace and quiet; to be in harmony with my own thoughts and ideas.  But not completely alone, of course.  I would also wish for at least one other friend to be with me to keep company with.  Then I think I would be set just enjoying life, each other’s company, writing, reading, sharing, and laughing till forever and ever….

6. Have you experienced writers block? What do you do to overcome it?

Of course, who hasn’t!  However, I think I have more of a ‘procrastinators block,’ where as much as I want to work and share a post, I just don’t have the energy to do so.  Then I continue on with the next days tasks, only to realize the same path has happened and now its end of day again.

I overcome such days by re-grouping and motivating myself to accomplish what I can, in the time I’m able to.  I have a terrible attention span and especially when writing, I just need peace and quiet, which is hard to get with a busy, inquisitive toddler around.  I like to be able to read out loud what I’m writing/expressing, so I find time when I can to do this and go from there.  I figure practice makes perfect, so some day I’ll achieve tasks quicker but I’m always a work in progress.  Aren’t we all?? 

7. What’s your most visited website or blog? Why?

I don’t have any one website in particular since I love to venture wherever pages and topics may lead me.  I feel that allowing ones agenda and mind to run free is the best way to learn.  I also believe that we should always be open minded to new or different viewpoints first before just shutting down.

8. What’s your favorite summertime drink?

A ice cold Blue Moon beer in a frosty mug on a beach somewhere….or a floatie in the pool.  Wherever the stars are clear as night can allow and peacefulness is greatest.

9. Do you have any creative hobbies that you don’t blog about?

I do, actually!  I’m a flautist, so I secretly would love to have time to practice but I never do.  Maybe when I’m older and closer to retirement or something, or in my next life…. who knows where this hidden talent may arise in my life’s future but I know some day my calling we arise!   But music is my passion and always will be.

I also love to take pictures when I get the chance.  That’s on my hobby to do list, next to endless of other dreams.  But for now, I’m loving living out my dream hobby of sharing my passion of making and using homemade products.  I believe that if we all choose outside of big brands that they will truly hear us and things could really change for the better of our inhabitance here on Earth.  Otherwise, I fear any further conversations are null if nothing is done as a whole, and soon!

10. What is your decor style?

My dream house would be to have a modern, contemporary décor (that is if I didn’t have a toddler running around my house ruining anything possible considered contemporary, making it his own ‘modern’!!)  But all in all, I’m a very easy going, nothing too fancy, simple and comfortable style of living.  My dream gift certificate would be to The Container Store….oh how I could organize every nook and cranny of my house.  🙂
