Liebster Award fever

This is so exciting! Claire from DaisyBisley has honoured In Social We Trust with its first blog award :) It’s an interesting one because the only prize behind it is the recognition of your peers (which means the world to any blogger).


About the Liebster Award

Liebster is a German word that means ‘dearest’ (and sweetheart, and darling), and the Liebster Award’s origins are pretty much a mystery. We know that it’s awarded to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers, and that bloggers nominate other bloggers.

ImageBasically, the Liebster Award offers a way to strenghten the relationship with other bloggers while helping spread the word about new blogs. But here’s the catch: you can’t just accept the award, you must play by the rules and pay it forward. Only after you’ve completed the tasks and nominated other bloggers, you are free to stick the award on your blog for all to see.

Below you’ll find the rules:

  • Share 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions posted by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Create 11 questions to ask the 11 people you nominate.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers with under 200 followers and let them know they’ve been nominated.


11 random facts about me

I instantly wake up as soon as the sun rises. I remember things that happened when I was 3 years old as if it were yesterday. I got married to a guy that I met on Facebook. I’m VERY cautious when on the street, one could say that I’m the perfect pedestrian. I’m a huge MMA fan. I feel sad everytime that I find spam on Reddit. I love whales since I was a little girl. I’ve had more dogs than human friends. I have a little brother who looks just like me. I have a collection of X-ray images (a.k.a. radiographies) that I’ve found on the streets of Buenos Aires. I used to think I was a good cook until my husband decided to get in touch with his Italian roots. Living in Italy has destroyed my palate, every dish I’ve eaten since I left wasn’t good enough.

My answers to Claire’s questions

1.  What is your favourite book?
La casa verde‘ by Mario Vargas Llosa.
2.  What’s the one city you’ve always wanted to visit?
3.  What are you’re top 3 albums of all time?
This is a tough one! I would say ‘A night at the opera’ by Queen, ‘Cross’ by Justice and ‘First band on the moon’ by The Cardigans.
4.  Why did you start blogging?
Because I had things to say.
5.  Star Trek or Star Wars?
Star Wars.

Vegetables Korma:
8.  If you could learn a new skill what would it be?
Something related to graphic design, for sure.
9.  If you could invent anything you want, what would it be?
Well, everytime I’m running late I have this strong desire of switching places with someone who is walking 2-3 blocks ahead of me. It’s not much, I know, but it’s been my dream since I was a kid so I guess that I would like to invent some sort of a wrist watch that would allow me to do that.
10.  Favourite TV show of all time?
11.  If this character was a real person, what fictional character would be your best friend?
Joan P. Harris!
