Liebster Award


Just a few days ago, I got nominated for the Liebster Award. After being ultimately happy and smiling like crazy for a few minutes, I started freaking out a bit: what exactly is the Liebster Award and what does it mean for my blog?

After doing some research, I guess I figured it out now. The Liebster Award (which can actually be translated as the “loveliest” or the “sweetest” award) is a form of acknowledgement for “new” bloggers.

Wait, what? You do have missed it?
Let me list some names for you: Jasmine van den Bogaerde, a 19 year old singersongwriter from England, likes to be called by her artist’s name Birdy. Suzanne Collins dedicated one of her books from the trilogy The Hunger Games to a self-created species: the mockingjay.
Still not convinced? Let me call out a classic: To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, followed by its sequel Go Set A Watchman last year. Even Eminem dedicated a song to the same species as Harper Lee has written about, namely the mockingbird. Continue reading “Why mockingbirds are so fascinating”

Hello, world!

I don’t know. I don’t know at all. And that’s what’s frightening the life out of me. To have no idea…

– Agatha Christie, And Then There Were None

I’ve decided to start with this book quote, because it describes my feelings at this moment the best. I have no idea what to expect of this blog, but I want to dive into the deep. I’m up for a challenge.
