Alright readers! I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the lovely Brittany from Refuge Under His Wings! The Liebster Award was created to discover and recognize new blogs! I am so honored that Brittany chose me! Once you've been chosen you have to answer ten questions that the person who nominated you asked and then nominate 10 more bloggers and come up with questions for them! It really is fun! And once again, thank you Brittany! You really should check out her blog! It's a lifestyle blog full of DIY's and other post all with a focus on Jesus! Love it! 

Liebster Award: Collectively Caitlin:

The Rules for the Liebster Award:

  • Thank the person who nominated you

  • Share the award on your blog

  • Answer the 10 questions you are asked

  • Nominate 10+ new bloggers

  • Ask 10 new questions


My Questions:

  1. Besides blogging, what are 3 of your hobbies? Does drinking coffee count as a hobby? I'm going to go with yes. Yes it does. I love to write. And..... honestly most of my life is reading and writing blogs or selling jewelry these days. haha! But I love it so it feels like a hobby! Does that count?

  2. Do you have a schedule for your posts or do you just post whenever you’re inspired? I have Takeover Tuesdays that are always on Tuesday's at 8am. And I post at 8am Monday-Saturday. I don't usually have posts on Sunday. Home girl needs a break sometimes. I write mine ahead of time because I can't stand feeling rushed to post. Then I rush too much and create crappy posts. So like today I will probably write like 4 days worth of posts. 

  3. What type of camera do you use for your blog photos? Right now I am just using mine and my husbands phone. I'll get a good blogging camera eventually!

  4. Do you have any pets? If so, what? No pets yet. But after our next PCS it is totally happening!

  5. On average, how much time do you put into your blog posts? Oh that really depends. I would say each post takes at the least one hour. Some have taken upwards of 3+ depending on how many images are in them. Also if it's a recipe and then I have to cook it, edit photos, and write the recipe. 

  6. Who inspires you? Other bloggers! Totally! I love my community of bloggers and I love seeing all of their creative ideas and seeing how they are growing and what Collectively Caitlin could one day become!

  7. If you were to name 3 goals you want your blog to achieve this year, what would they be? I want to be able to make enough money from my blog to be able to go with my husband on his next TDY. I want to get a good camera and learn how to use it well. I want to be able to use my blog to empower more women wherever they are in life!

  8. Which of your posts did you enjoy writing the most? Oh this is hard! I love these fun posts but I also really like the posts that make an impact on people. But I guess those are nerve wracking to write. I guess I have to say that my 5 Essential Chloe and Isabel Items and Lies We All Tell Our Husbands were the most fun to write and Open Letter To The Husband Of A Depressed Wife was the most fun to see people respond to. 

  9. Are you an early bird or a night owl? Oh my goodness I am neither right now! It's terrible! I have yet to recover from my terrible lack of sleep schedule from college. Some nights I'm up super late and some mornings I am up and cheery in the morning. I need to get some regulation in this area. hahaha!

  10. Where is your favorite place to blog? Starbucks. I do like my desk at home but my chair is uncomfortable so I have more trouble being creative. But that's where I'll make myself work when I really need to focus. Cause then the prospect of moving to the couch helps me work faster! haha!
