Another Sunny day! And another Sunshine Blogger Award # 14

Tanya of Salted Caramel

has nominated for my 14th Sunshine Blogger Award.

Tanya has a wonderful blog. A diverse blog with many informative topics. Please go check it out. Thank you so much Tanya for bestowing this honor on my blog.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award? 

“The Blogosphere community holds several awards that bloggers use to nominate a blog in appreciation for its creative, inspiring, or motivational content.”

“The award also helps other bloggers receive recognition and free exposure for their blogs.”

Award’s Rules 

There are some basic rules to follow if you decide to participate:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog so everyone can visit.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on their blog post.
  • List the rules and display the Award logo on your blog post.

Tanya’s Questions for the Nominees of this Award

1. How old is your blog now?

My blog is going to be one year old in a few weeks. It is because of Tanya that I started blogging in the first instance. So the credit for my blog goes to her.

2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

Being the sort of person who can talk about my pet topics for hours on end, blogging has given me the perfect opportunity to say whatever I want to say. Surprisingly I didn’t felt shy, even when I wrote my first ever poem and posted it on my blog. Or my very first story. I never felt that I would be ridiculed or people won’t like my writing. I guess that is the most liberating experience.

3. How important do you think Social Media is for the success of a blog?

People ( experts) say that you should advertise your blog on social media sites like Twitter or Facebook. But I don’t think that it is all that important for the popularity of your blog. The content and regularity is more important.

4. How would you define a sucessful blog? In other words, what do think a successfu blog looks like?

For me the most successful blog is the one the blogger enjoys writing and their follower enjoys reading. That is the basic aim of blogging and if you want to measure the success in terms of followers or money made, then there will always be blogs who have many more followers or are making more money.

5. Describe your feelings when you received your first blogging award nomination.

Incredible! I couldn’t believe that someone thought me or my blog, deserving of an award.

6. Have you ever thought about monetizing your blog ?

I have Word-ads on my blog but am thinking of discontinuing them. They just take up space on my site and the money earned is just not worth it.

7. If so, what do you think is the best method of monetizing?

I think the best way to make money is through affiliated links. But I have no idea how it is done.

8. What kind of post fo you find easiest or most enjoyable to write?

Sometimes I enjoy combining a few prompts into a post, at others I like writing about the blogging process itself. It depends upon how I am feeling that day!

9. What is your opinion about writing prompts?

I like the prompts. I admire people who give us the Prompt words day after day. It take s lot of work and thought for doing it.

10. Funny/Weird Question: if you were a superhero, what superpower would you like to have and what would you do with it?

I would like to be Superman and Superwoman rolled into one. Or rather I think Captain Marvel will do. She is supposedly the most powerful hero out there.

11. What is your favourite way to unwind after a hectic day ?

Blogging, or reading. Or maybe relax in front of tv with my feet up. Depends on the sort of the day I’ve had.

Thanks a lot Tanya for this honor, once again.

I am asking anyone who is interested in answering the questions posed by Tanya to give it a shot.

Sorry for not posting new questions of my own but the ones Tanya has asked are very interesting and relevant.

No nomination this time around. The field is open, so anyone reading this, consider yourself nominated.

Thanks for reading!

Here are Stuart’s questions:

1. What, in your opinion, is the most majestic of all God’s creation?

The whole universe is an amazing creation, but I feel that human beings are the only ones who have reasoning, power of making informed decisions and the free will to do so. So I would say that human being is the most majestic of all creations.

2. Are you a read the book type of person or a wait for the movie type?

I would read the book first and then would wait for the movie.

3. What topic do you feel is the least discussed but the one most needed one to be discussed?

We need to discuss a lot of issues in our society. An open debate about our values, morals and behavior is very much needed.

4. Do you prefer hanging out with a group of friends around a fire or chilling alone by a lake?

Friends any day!

5. What inspires you to keep blogging?

It is a place where I can express my opinions and say what I want to say. So it is my new passion.

6. Do you believe the world is going to hell in a hand basket? Why?

Environment-wise we definitely are. There is nothing that cannot be fixed but we need will and definitely some action to save ourselves from the impending doom.

I prefer not to discuss my religion here.

11. Where did the phrase “by the skin of my teeth” originate?

Something which is even slimmer than a non-existent skin on the teeth. Frankly I have no idea. I can google it but what’s the fun in that!

The Questions from Kristian to his nominees:

1. What is your theory on the point of existence?

You mean to ask, Why we exist?

I think that we are created to prove that we are deserving of the love of God. Be good and kind and helpful in life. Accept things that we can not change and do our best to change things for the better which are in our power to do.

2. Do you have a favourite film? What is it?

There are so many not one. I love a movie which makes me think and can change my view point. But I love a good comedy or action movie as well.

Blogging for some great interesting products or company.

Lying, bragging and being rude. I guess we all dislike these traits.

A certain orange person has resigned and is in custody for manipulating the justice system, and all those under him into lying for him.

Sunshine blogger award Nominations # 10 and 11

Em of From famine to feast has nominated me for The Sunshine Blogger Award.

Yaasotaa also nominated me for this award a couple of months ago ( maybe more, sorry I put it off for so long).

I am grateful for both these excellent bloggers for this honor. Please check out their blogs.

The Sunshine Blogger Award is peers recognition award for bloggers who inspire readers by promoting positivity and bringing joy.

Rules:

• Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them.

• Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.

• Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.

• Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.

• List the rules and display a Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post and/or your blog site.

Em’s eleven questions for the nominees (which were very challenging to come up with )are as follows:

1.What has been your favourite age, and why?

Young age when I was able to do anything I wanted without getting tired was good but it had a lot of responsibility and fear of failure. Old age where I have a few limitations health wise but fewer fears and responsibilities. I guess each had its bonus. I think I am happy to be in the age I am now because I am more comfortable in my skin.

2.What things do you collect?

Unfortunately I do have a lot of meaningless stuff which probably has very less value for me, like cosmetics, clothes shoes. I am trying these days to curb this habit and give away what I don’t need or use.

3.Do you work better with actual lists or with mental lists?

Since my memory is not that good anymore, I work better with actual lists. But I am not the sort of person who is always making lists. There are two type of lists I make, grocery shopping list and packing list. The rest is left to my memory!

4.Do you meditate? Why or why not?

I do, daily. It centers me. It makes me aware of the things I should be grateful for.

5.What’s your favourite non-mental health book/author?

Oh I have loads of writers I like to read. My current fave is Louise Penny, an Canadian author. Her style is a cross between Agatha Christie and Conan Doyle. Very interesting books.

6.How old do you want to get?

I want to live till the age I can exist independently and not be a burden on anyone, not even my children.

7.Do you think the human species is getting better, getting worse, or do you think we just do the same things over and over again?

We probably are making the same mistake our ancestors made but since we have access to a far more advanced technology, we are likely to make more serious mistakes and cause irreparable damage.

8.Do you believe in things metaphysical? Do you believe in horoscopes, prognosticating cards, and so on?

I do believe in the metaphysical, like concept of soul, angels and other non- physical entities. But I don’t believe that the future can be predicted, so no to horoscopes etc.

9.Team Marvel or Team DC?

Team Marvel. All of them. Though DC is getting better with the recent Wonder Woman movies.

10.Do you like brunch and if you do, what’s your favourite brunch food?

Not very keen on brunch.

11.Eat in or eat out?

Eat in all through the week. Eating out one weekends!

Yaasotaa’s Questions are;

1. What do you think about love?

Love is essential part of being human. It’s not always about romance, though that is essential too, but love among us in families and friends. Among us as humans for each other is very necessary.

2 jungle traking or swimming?

Don’t know how to swim so if it has to be choice between just these two, it has to be jungle tracking. Though I would be the last one, bringing up the rear.

3.Ever felt the presence of ghosts? Was it a woman or a man or a couple?

I can’t say that I have experienced a ghost. Seen them in movies only.

4. Pizza or Mc?

Pizza, of course!

5. Have you been betrayed by your friends?

Who hasn’t been betrayed in life. But they certainly were no friends. Friends don’t do that and those who betray us or back stab us are no friends.

6. Drawing or painting?

Both but on a very primitive level. Imagine a child doing it!

7. What is your worst nightmare?

Not being able to look after my physical, mental and financial needs. I never want to be in that position.

8. What is your favrourite instrument?

A pen for writing, a screwdriver for fixing thing and an iPod for music.

9. Who is your mentor?why

My father taught me the basic values of life. He is my role model and try to be like him.

My Questions;

1. What is the most important thing in life for you?

2. Do your friends and family support you in blogging ( or any other passion of your’s)?

3. Which is your favorite flavor, in ice cream?

4. What would be your dream job?

5. Who is your favorite actor, or author ( if you don’t watch movies)?

6.What are your ambitions for the next year?

Blogger Recognition Award #4

Carol of Chopkins has very kindly nominated me for this award. Thank you so much Carol. She has a wonderful blog and she writes lovely posts. Very heartfelt and touching.

AWARD RULES:

• Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.

• Give a brief story of how your blog started.

• Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.

• Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

The start;

I have written about how I started my blog many times. So this time I want to tell you why I write, after starting my blog on a whim. ( you can read about it Here ).

Writing gives me something which I had not imagined it could. It gives an outlet to my feelings and ideas. It enables me to express what resides in the depth of my soul. I feel free to say and write what I want. I am obviously careful not to give offense but the freedom of expression is a powerful thing. I try to use my posts to create awareness among my readers. It is an excellent meeting place. I have made a lot of great friends here. I have gained confidence and my writing skills have improved a lot ( even if I say so myself!). So, in short, blogging is great!

My advice;

1. Be honest. If there is something you don’t know, don’t write about it. On unknown territory, research your subjects and then write. People can discern when they are being given false information.

2. Be generous. Read other blogs. Give genuine comments and give time to getting to know your fellow bloggers. It takes time and effort to get to know people around you. If you are generous with your time, others will reciprocate too.

My nominees;

Jen Goldie

Winnie of Musings

Yonnie of In His Care

Teresa of The Haunted Wordsmith

Gina of Singledust

After much deliberation I have decided to award the nomination to five outstanding bloggers. Hope you will have enough time at hand to respond to it. Because I believe that these inter-blogger exchanges built up the community spirit.

Thanks for reading.

Hey this is a new one! “Blogger Recognition Award” 1, 2 & 3

Laura Venturini has very kindly nominated my blog for this Blogger recognition award. I am truly grateful to her for bestowing this honor on my blog.

As a result of this post of Laura, who had nominated Di, of Pensitivity, she also gave a shoutout to my blog. Thanks a lot Di for your kindness.

I was also nominated by Beckie of Beckie’s Mentalmess for this award. A huge thanks to you Beckie as well.

AWARD RULES:

  • Thank the nominator, and publish a post on your blog about receiving the Blogger Recognition Award. Make sure to provide a link to the nominator’s blog in your post.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog started.
  • Give two pieces of advice to new bloggers.
  • Nominate 10-15 other bloggers for this award, and inform them of their nomination.

How it all started;

I had a friend who started to blog and to read her posts, I had to make a WordPress account. Every time I would open my account to read her posts, the app would urge me to start my own blog. So one day I did it! I had not thought this through and had not made any long term plans but when I started to write, something miraculous happened and it became my new passion or hobby. It is so rewarding to write what others read and like. It truly is a humbling experience but at the same this it is exhilarating too! I want to thank all my friends here in this blogging world who have given me tremendous support.

My advice;

1. Just write. Write on things which are your passion. Write about things you are knowledgeable about and write with sincerity. And don’t give up writing if it is your passion.

2. Be grateful that people are willing to spend time on reading what you write. Never lose this as otherwise you will become arrogant and the process of blogging will not be a source of enjoyment for you. (And always accept awards😜)

My nominees;

Dr Tanya of Salted Caramel

Calmkate of Aroused

Tanvir of Beauty lies within yourself

Britchy of Brichin in the kitchen

Anitashope of For the love of

Kim of I tripped over a stone

JP the wide eyed wanderer

Len of Lensdailydiary

Willow of Patience of a willow

Tom of Slumdog Soldier

My sincere thanks once again to Laura for the gifting of this award.

The blogs I chose for the award are really great ones. I hope that the fact that writing award posts are a time consuming process will not deter you from accepting this award. To my mind being nominated or given an award is a great honor and a way to bond with the community. So please try to pay it forward.

Thanks

#awardsandnominations

Blogging—QQ: What is it about them [Awards], that you like and or dislike?

Rory has asked what do we think about awards

To be very honest, I love getting an award ( nomination ). It bolsters my self confidence and encourages me to write more and write better.

The awards pros and cons, according to me are;

Pros;

1. Getting an award is going to boost the bloggers spirits.

2. With an award displayed on their home page, the blogger gets more traffic and maybe more followers.

3. It increases the interaction between different bloggers and forms connections.

4. The overall community spirit gets a boost, when one blogger nominates 5-11 new/ other blogs for the award.

5. They get to know more about each other through the questions asked or when you have to write down about your love of blogging, as per the requirement of some awards.

Cons;

1. Some bloggers find these awards time consuming and tedious. They don’t want to go to the trouble of drafting the whole blog posts.

2. The selection of nominees/ blogs to gift the award is sometimes too difficult, with a lot of them not acknowledging the gift, or refusing on the grounds that they don’t do awards or sometimes they are not even aware of the gift/nomination.

3. Since no criteria exists for these award gifting, people feel that this doesn’t signify any great honor to receive the award.

4. There are times when multiple types of awards are given to one blog simultaneously and that makes it difficult for the recipient to respond properly.

Conclusion;

If there was a fixed criteria for the awards and there was someone in the position to judge and give the awards, this could mean more to the recipient. But since WordPress is not going to perform this function, we have to go by our personal choices in giving, receiving and paying it forward regarding different awards.
