The 2017 Liebster Award - Lucy Williams Global

I am very excited to announce I have won another blogging award. I was nominated for the 2017 Liebster Award by the blog Beyond Latitudes.

I am very pleased to accept this award from Beyond Latitudes, it is such an honor to be nominated.

I only started blogging at the beginning of this year and I am now very pleased to have three awards under my belt!

When I am writing, sometimes I think is anyone going to read this? So, when I get nominated for these awards it makes it all worth it and to know someone likes what I am writing!

Questions from my Nominator

What has been your biggest challenge while blogging?

Learning all about blogging! There is so much more to it, than just writing an article and adding a few photos.

What is your number one tip for other bloggers?

Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing, just concentrate on what you are doing. There is so much noise out there, don’t compare yourself to others.

What are your hobbies other than blogging?

I love to cook and of course travelling!

What successful entrepreneur do you admire and why?

Richard Branson, because of the empire he has achieved.

Who is your favourite blogger and why?

I have two! Helene from Helene in Between because she is very normal and shares all her blogging knowledge, travels and keeps it interesting.

My other favourite blogger is Lauren from The Skinny Confidential as she offers lots of health and beauty tips and easy recipe ideas.

Tell us about your blog and why you started blogging?

My blog is all about travel, cruising and packing tips. The reason why I started my blog was that I wanted to share more than just a few photos on Facebook of my travels.

I went on a world cruise in January this year and I really wanted to share my experiences and tips on what to do in each of the ports I was visiting and that was the start of ‘The Travelling Wife Cruising Around the World’.

An item you can’t live without.

My iPhone, as I can never put it down!

What and/or who motivates you to write?

I feel I have a lot to share as I am always travelling and I know a lot about the cruise industry and I haves lots of travel/cruise tips. While I am travelling or at home I get asked a lot of questions so this keeps me motivated to write, as hopefully I am answering someone’s question.
