Liebster Award

liebster-award-large
I’m incredibly happy and honored to have been nominated by the wonderful Tarah who is the driving force behind Blanc Blog.

 For those who don’t know the Liebster Award was created by bloggers for other bloggers to help give recognition to new blogs that create great content.
The idea behind the award is that it is like a chain letter (but not the annoying kind that will have dire consequences if you don’t forward it to at least 10 other people). It makes me extremely happy to know that there are people reading and enjoying Right Where I Left Off. I think the award is a great way to pay it forward and promote other great blogs out there like — did for mine.
The general rules are:
Respond to your nominator’s q&a, then nominate some new blogs you love. If you’d like, link back to me. I’d love to read your responses!
Q+A Response:

1. Why did you start blogging?

I wanted to share my many inspirations, ever-changing style, travel adventures and DIY attempts/successes. I think that life sometimes gets in the way of the many great adventures and projects that are to be had. I started Right Where I Left Off to document these explorations so that when I have to press pause on them I can come back to pick up from right where I left off (see what I did there?).

2. Where do you call home and what do you enjoy most about being there?

The Bay Area is my home. I’m born and raised in the heart of Silicon Valley and truly enjoy how much hustle and bustle is happening here.

3. What is one place everyone should visit and why?

I think everyone should visit their nearest national park or even state park. These days it can be hard to pull yourself away from a Netflix binge-watching marathon or away from our phones, but it’s incredibly important to take a break from it all and spend some time outside. I feel incredibly lucky to live in the Bay Area which is surrounded by tons of great parks.

4. What professionals inspire you?

I’m constantly inspired by all types of people. My blog that really inspired me to start one was A Pair and A Spare, I love how she had started is as an outlet for her creativity while working full-time as a town planner. It’s grown exponentially and really inspired me to keep going whenever I feel burnt out. I’m also inspired by new blogs that I discover all the time, especially the ones I’m nominating below!

5. What is your ultimate goal for your blog?

I want to always have fun creating content for it. I never want to become burnt out and have the blog become a burden to continue.

6. What is one thing you don’t leave the house without?

I have a million things I can’t leave without, but the most important is probably my phone. I have everything of important on their now from my calendar to my credit cards (thanks to Apple Pay haha), I almost feel like I could leave my wallet at home.

7. How do you take your coffee?

I don’t have a regular go to coffee because I like to try a new drink every time I go to a coffee shop. But I do drink tea religiously, my favorite is earl green tea. It taste like early grey but has the additional benefits of green tea.

8. Do you ever experience writer’s block? If so, how do you deal with it?

Currently no, I feel that it’s mainly because I’m still a relatively new blog. But I try not to force anything when writing or producing content for the blog. If it’s not working I’ll put the idea on hold and try writing about something else instead.

9. What is the best advice you can give your fellow bloggers about how to get new subscribers?

I’m still working on that actually. My best guess is be genuine and consistent. Try new methods of to getting new email sign ups. I recently switched from a sign-up form that was on the sidebar of my page to a drop down form that’s more obvious and in your face for the visitors. I’ve gained quite a few more sign ups after making that switch.

10. What is something people would be surprised to know about you?

I’m not sure if I have much to be surprising about. I have double jointed thumbs?

11. What 11 new bloggers do you nominate for the Liebster Award?
