Liebster Award

Liebster Award | Songbird Echoes

“Liebster Award, what’s that?”. I am sure a few of you must have thought that after reading the title. I definitely thought that when I first heard of it. Before I go on, I want to take some time to explain what it is all about. Liebster is a german term used to express endearment and the Liebster Award is given to bloggers, by bloggers. It is a kind gesture to acknowledge and promote new talent in the blogging community. The blogger who nominated you will ask you to answer a few questions. In response, you must answer their questions in a blog post and thank them while linking back to their blog. Finally, you must nominate a few bloggers, ask them a few questions and notify them. I received this from the beautiful Pink Arrhythmia and I thank her so much for thinking of my blog. Check out her blog if your heart beats for fashion. She is one of the first connections I made when I started out, and it goes to show how supportive the blogging community really is. “Community over competition” is something I truly believe in, and thankfully, I have found this to stay true among bloggers.

Pink Arrhythmia has thought of some very neat questions for me to answer as a part of this award, and I hope it helps you, my beautiful readers to get to know me a little better.

1. If you had to describe yourself as an accessory, what would it be?

Perhaps it has to do with my cultural background or maybe it has to do with my name, but I love the anklet. I love the sweet and innocent sound it makes along with the echoes it leaves behind.

2. What message do you want to send people through your blog?

The message I want to send through the thoughts I echo on my blog is to be inspired and to find the beauty in everyone and everything.

3. Who is your favourite blogger and why?

Does Humans of New York count?

4. What do you do to get away from winter blues?

I scroll through summer and vacation photos to relive memories under the sun. Sometimes I’ll choose a warmer place I wish I was in and search its hashtag (#sydney because well, I love Australia) in Instagram’s Explore section to see people’s moments. It’s a nice mental getaway and I learn more about the culture and neat spots of that city. I guess it’s like looking through a magazine, except most of the posts are from the current moment – one of my favourite things about social media.

5. Share a fun fact about yourself that no one knows!

My parents were going to name me Jasmine, but after I was born, they heard my voice and felt inspired to name me Gunjan instead. In Sanskrit, Gunjan means the humming or echoes of a Koyal (Songbird, in English).

6. What motto do you live by?

If you can dream it, you can achieve it.

I hope you enjoyed learning more about me. I now nominate these lovely ladies for the Liebster Award. Have fun discovering their blogs!

Manya, Jenn and Karen, here are my questions for you.

  1. What inspired you to start blogging?
  2. Name your current celebrity fashion inspiration.
  3. What would your ideal meal consist of?
  4. Which places do you hope to travel to in 2016?
  5. What is your favourite thing about blogging so far?
