Huge news. Goldfish Jones have been nominated for a Liebster Award in recognition of their input into the comedy/depressing comedy blog genre. Thank you Purest Home for the nomination. The Liebster Award is for up and coming bloggers and I am happy to be nominated.

The rules for the award are simple:

  1. Thank the blogger that nominated you
  2. Share the award on your blog and social medias
  3. Answer the ten questions you were given by your nominator
  4. Nominate 10 other new bloggers that you admire
  5. Notify your nominees via social media

Purest Home asked me the following questions:

1. What is your blog about? Its pretty much an ode to our failed career as musicians with a bit of satire and spoof thrown in along with some reviews. Often we go in too deep and you’ll soon discover our minds are not somewhere you want to be. Sometimes we slip into pretending to be a fish, its an easy fall back.

2. Why did you start blogging? Basically the music thing wasn’t working out due to our being fairly untalented in that regard. We have a lot of funny stories to tell and a blog could be our platform to do so.

3. What is the thing you find most interesting about yourself? I think the fact that I live and breath underwater is pretty interesting, also my lack of memory enables me to eat the same thing every day without getting bored.

4. Are you an introvert or an extrovert? As a band we are extroverts but individually introverts.

5. What do you do to unwind after a stressful day? We love to sit down and unwind with the next episode of our favourite on-line show Truly Average  click the name to see it!

6. Coffee, tea, or something else? Big fans of hot chocolate mixed with a cheeky pinch of Baileys.

7. When did you start blogging? February 12th 2016!

8. What are your favourite apps, websites, or forms of social media to help your blog? Really enjoying various blogging groups on facebook, that’s all we’ve really got to use so far.

9. What is one interesting thing about your hometown? The name of our home town almost describes its constant weather. Coleraine (cold and rainy!)

10. Do you prefer movies or reading, and what is your favorite title? Movies just about! Favourite movie is called Office Space.

I nominate:

  1. Oluwanitori’s Blog
  2. Hadessah 
  3. Disguised by zebras 
  4. Salon Sites
  5. Coccole Jarvis 
  6. Yvette Donde
