Becky at the “In Becky’s head” Blog has nominated me for the Liebster Award. I love getting an award as it means all my hard work is being noticed. Thank you for nominating me Becky! 🙂

What I noticed when I looked ay Becky’s blog was that she’s a scientist and works with materials for gravitational wave detectors. That for me is a totally geeky and brilliant thing to know about… so I was doubly pleased to look up Becky. Go look at her blog:

Moving on though, the Liebster award is an opportunity to get to know other bloggers a bit better with the focus being on new bloggers. I’ve had a few new bloggers recently so watch out – it might be you!

Liebster Award

These are the rules sent to me, Becky I think has changed them – but hey, that’s the spice of life right? Or is that variety?

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you
  2. Display the award on your blog
  3. Answer a set of 11 questions provided from the blogger that you were nominated by
  4. Nominate 11 bloggers, each with under 200 followers
  5. Create your own set of questions for your nominations to answer


I’ve been asked these questions by Becky… so here goes:

  1. Why did you start your blog                                                                                                                I started my blog as I had ideas, things to write about that I wanted to write to a wider audience
  2. Have you ever wanted to blog about something but not done it?                                        I have, I wanted to write about some stuff for example on rascism and was taking a quote from Morgan Freeman for my point. I decided it was too dangerous… There have been others as well as this as it was in danger of turning my blog into a big rant on life. I liked positive instead!
  3. What was your favourite childhood movie?                                                                         StarWars, the Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi… eeeasyyy!
  4. What do you do to relax?                                                                                                              What’s relax?
  5. Who’s your favourite author right now?                                                                                        I don’t have favourite authors as such, more books that I like. My favourite if I have one as he has written some epic novels is Arthur C Clarke
  6. What’s your biggest goal for 2016?                                                                                                  To create my own Circuit Industry Magazine and keep it going… and to win the lottery!
  7. What’s your perfect holiday destination?                                                                     Iceland, never been there, want to so much!
  8. Have you tried anything new lately?                                                                                               Sure, something called relaxing. It didn’t last long!
  9. What languages do you speak?                                                                                                          I can speak English, Yorkshire for when I’m up t’mill, Scouser if I want to do an impression of Cheryl Cole And Geordie to take the mickey out of the guy next to me at work!
  10. Please name a female scientist without googling it (don’t worry, this is just me hi-jacking a fun quiz to satisfy my own curiousity – if you can’t name one I won’t judge).                                                                                                                                                        Marie Curie and Heather Cooper – I did two I had to break one rule!
  11. What’s your favourite creative outlet apart from blogging.                                                  I love drawing things, different things, in different ways!


The bloggers I nominate are (why is it 11 BTW):








Tania Marie




elliemaloney – Yes this is 12 I know, but I saw a post from Ellie and had to add her!

I’ve picked mainly newbie or relatively newbie bloggers to me. There might be one or two in there I just want to find out about!


Finally rule 5. Here are the questions I want those bloggers to answer:

  1. Tell me us one thing about you we don’t know about!
  2. Take a screenshot of the homepage on your phone and post it here. If you can’t don’t worry – put a cool picture on.
  3. What was your favourite childhood movie?
  4. What was the last creative thing you did that wasn’t a blog post?
  5. What was the last amazing book you read? If you don’t readt, what about a film?
  6. What’s your biggest goal for 2016?
  7. I live in the UK – what’s your first thought when you hear / read the UK?
  8. If you drive – what car do you own? If not, how do you get about?
  9. I’m well into space stuff – what was the last bit of space news you heard (don’t google) if you’re not into space, just say.
  10. What device do you ususally use to blog on?
  11. Which hot drink do your prefer? Tea or coffee?



I’m looking forward to hearing your answers, if you don’t want to reply or you’re anawards free blog just consider this a token gesture of appreciation! 🙂

Have a great day all!

Simon 🙂

  1. Thank-you so much dear Simon! I am rather lame at this, I mean – do people really want to know more about how ridiculous I am? I’m not entirely sure….
    As for you, I wish you were relaxing right now, kicking back with some tea, and drawing, but it sounds like that is unlikely. There, now I gave you some new homework. 🙂

    1. Why are you lame? I want to hear more about you even if no-one else does and I don’t believe that will be the case!
      I’m not relaxing I’m afraid as I’m at work – but I willget a cup of tea I think! Thank you! 🙂 xo

      1. You are most kind. I do like your questions, I’ll see if I can get something going. Hope you at least took a small moment to savor that tea. 🙂

  2. Hey Simon! Thanks so much! 😀I’m not a new blog, though. I’ve been here for almost two years so I feel bad for accepting this.

    1. I’ve been about longer, I think it’s more blogs being new to each other. So while I know we’ve been talking a little while, it’s not been that long… so don’t feel guilty 🙂


It's great to hear from bloggies - feel free to leave a comment :-)
