One day, suddenly my blog follower count started increasing and I kept getting notifications from WordPress about it. I was clueless as to how this was happening since I did not post anything new recently. I had somehow missed the comment from Angela Rainbow about this award nomination 😛 and that was the reason for sudden traffic increase !! I was in my office when I saw the notification and I started jumping up and down (in my mind of course! :P). Another motivational award from a fellow blogger and I felt ecstatic to receive it. Thank you so much Angela for this recognition. Getting discovered for our blogs inspires to write more!
This award is given by bloggers to other new bloggers on the block. A great way to be recognized in the blogging community (Since they are the people who will be reading your stuff anyways 😀 )
The rules for this award are (gathered from different sources since the official Liebster award website seems to be inaccessible!):
- Thank the blogger who nominated you.
- Answer the questions or fulfill the task that blogger gave you.
- Nominate other blogs that you feel deserve the award
- Ask your nominees questions of your own.
- List the rules in your post.
- Once you have written and published your post, then inform your nominees of their nomination!
Questions that Angela Rainbow asked me:
What made you started blogging?
My answer: I used to document my experiences & experiments. I have a personal diary (which only my husband has access to! 😛 ) in which I have written about the good and bad times I faced. I also have a recipe book in which I have written about my cooking experiments which one day I wish to pass on to the next gen in my family who will be interested in cooking 😀 . After reading my memoires, my husband urged me to start writing blogs and share my experiences with everybody so that they will be useful to many people. And thats how I started blogging!!!!!
If you can choose to own one fictional gadget/tool, what is it and why?
My answer: I desperately wish to have Hermione’s time turner :D. Day in- day out I make so many mistakes that I wish I could correct using the time turner. Plus, it would be so cool to see yourself in the past, isn’t it?
Name the strangest animal/living creature that you have seen.
My answer: I have many such living (human) creatures around me 😀 .Best to leave them alone out of this blog.
Can you live without the internet for a week?
My answer: I guess I can. I just need a good book and I will survive without internet for a week.
If you can fully learn one new language/skills today, what do you want to learn?
My answer: Always wanted to learn swimming. So definitely that will be the skill I want to learn.
If you can change one thing in this world, what is it?
My answer: There are so many things that I want to change in this world but to start with basics, I hate it when people keep the water tap open and then apply handwash, make a lather, take their own sweet time to rub their hands and then wash it with the water that they wasted so much in last 5mins. With increasing issues of water scarcity, such people should be taught a good lesson!
What is the one housework you hate/love to do?
My answer: Doing laundry 😦
Which movie character do you want to be?
My answer: Hermione 😀 (Since she’s the only girl in the lead trio!! Otherwise I would love to play either Ron or Harry as well!)
When you meet the creator God, what is the number one question you would ask?
My answer: Why did you give me the supreme power of Over-thinking??? 😛
What was the most horrible/disgusting food you have ever eaten?
My answer: I once ordered some thai dish in Krabi with flat noodles and sauce. That was so slimey and bland (Yuckkk !!). Even thinking about it is painful! I just took one mouthful of it and left the rest of the dish as is.
Tell us one thing you are passionate about.
My answer: Cooking !
I am currently following very few people, but I will change that soon! So the following list will keep growing:
