Liebster Award

Liebster Award | Danielle Joy

I am thrilled to announce to you that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by A Journey With Tiffany!
The Liebster Award is an award given to new bloggers to learn about and connect with others. I count it an honor to be recognized as a notable blogger.

As a nominee, one must:

1. Answer the questions given by the nominator and then come up with 10 new questions to ask the bloggers one wants to nominate.

2. Nominate 8 other blogs, let them know one has nominated them, and put a link to their blog in one’s blog post.

3. Refer to the nominator by linking back to their blog in one’s blog post.

No tag backs are allowed and nominees must have under 200 followers on any platform.

Questions I have been asked: (I was asked only 9!)

  1. What is your all-time favorite meal that you could eat every day without fail?
    That’s a tough question because I’m so fond of variety. Hummus, though not exactly a meal, is something I could eat every day without fail. Preferably in outrageously absurd amounts. While traveling through Israel I probably ate about half a pound of hummus per day! (not kidding)
  2. What is your favorite holiday?
    Easter! I get so happy remembering what Jesus did for me. :D
  3. Since going vegan, is there a dish that you would love to make vegan?
    Greek mousaka. And I have yet to find or come up with the perfect vegan pancakes! My experience with vegan pancakes is that they don’t get fluffy enough :(.
  4. Why did you decide to become vegan?
    I was struggling with teenage acne, and would give veganism a shot to see if it would relieve my skin reactions. Apparently it did! :)
  5. Do you like coffee or tea?
    Tea.
  6. What do you like to do for fun?
    Sing, travel, laugh with friends, read, swim, spend time in nature, prepare food (!!!), rollerblade, play guitar, write (songs and stories), photograph things, hang out with my nephew…
  7. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you travel and why?
    Morocco is on the top of my list. The culture seems mysterious and intriguing. I am curious to find out what the people and cuisine are like. I think their architecture is gorgeous.
  8. What do you like to do on rainy days?
    Curl up with a book! Rainy days are perfect for studying and reading.
  9. Do you have a specialty dish? If so, what is it?
    My Pumpkin Soup!

Typepath

You may have noticed a chat box on the right side of your screen when you come to my blog. This is a chat service called Typepath which is being beta tested on several vegan blogs. Typepath lets blog readers from across the globe chat in realtime on my blog with readers from dozens or even hundreds of other vegan blogs. Through Typepath you can get connected with other blog readers that share common interests. Whether you have a question about veganism, are looking for a specific recipe, or need help with the preparation of a vegan meal, you can use Typepath to converse with others online on vegan blogs that are using Typepath.

Leave a comment to let me know what you think about the blogs I nominated and Typepath!

  1. Hi Danielle
    Thanks so much for nominating me. So sweet! I feel the same way about hummus. At this point I don’t think it’s possible to get sick of it. And amen to rainy day reading.
    Cheers!

  2. Thanks so much for my nomination Danielle :) I think I’ve done the Liebster Award once before but obviously not with your questions! I’ll look forward to seeing what others answer too as I’d be keen to hear about favourite vegan desserts ;)

  3. Hi Danielle – I am rather late as this got a bit caught up in Vegan MoFo busy times – so have just got around to it – thanks for the nomination – http://gggiraffe.blogspot.com.au/2015/06/two-liebster-awards.html
