Liebster Blog Award!

Posted March 27, 2015 by SE Babin in Uncategorized / 0 Comments



I am so excited to have been nominated for The Liebster award. It’s an award given to new bloggers and is given among the blogger community to get to know each other and highlight a new blogger. Engy Albasel Neville, Romance Author, nominated my blog, Stumbling Toward the Finish Line. 

 My blog tends to be pretty random, especially when it’s around Christmas time and I see all kinds of shiny things. Sometimes it’s about writing, sometimes it’s about books and sometimes it’s about just…stuff. 

 Thanks to Engy for the nomination. I haven’t known Engy long, but we just participated in an anthology recently and I know she’s cool people. 

 Engy has asked me to answer a series of questions: 

What was your first blog about? If you looked at my blog now, it was a cover reveal. If you look at my much older blogs, I used to write given topics on Myspace. So someone would say write about an alien experience, and off I would go writing something completely random about aliens. 

 How do you pick the topics for your blog? Normally, they’re given to me now because most of my energy goes into my novels. 

 Have you ever shared a blog that you later regretted? And if so, what was it & why did you regret it? Yes. It was about an incident I had. No one knew, but I deleted it just a few minutes after posting it. Sometimes blogging is cathartic, but it doesn’t always mean you should press “publish.” 

If you could time travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and what time frame? The Scottish Highlands in the 1600’s. I’d stuff soap down my corset before I went though. 

 Describe the idea man for your main character? Strong. Witty. Not afraid of a ballsy female heroine. 

 Who’s your favorite heroine? Kate Daniels from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series 

What’s the most memorable meal you’ve ever cooked? Oh man…there’s a lot of them. The most fun was crab legs. 

 What’s your latest book about? The disasters of dating. It’s super sekret squirrel 

If you could play any character on TV from any decade, who would you be? Private Benjamin. I lived that life! 

Beach or Mountains? Mountains. Always. 

If you weren’t an author, what would you be? I’d probably still be in the military.

Unfortunately, all the people I hoped to nominate have already been nominated, and I don’t know too many others with a blog. 

Thanks for the nomination, Engy!
