Sunshine Blogger Award

Hello All,

Yippeee!! again an award nomination. I am so glad to share with all of you that I have been again nominated for “Sunshine Blogger Award”. This award is special to me because my first blogger award was also “Sunshine Blogger Award”.

Here are the Rules of the award:

• 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.


Not just because it is the rule no. 1 to thank the person who nominated me for this award, but I sincerely want to thank Ranjini Madhavan for this nomination. I am glad, I found her on WordPress, visited her blog and followed her. We are not just fellow bloggers now, we have turned into friends who share their feelings through commenting on each others blog posts.

I am also happy to share her blog with you all, https://httpranjustraveldiaries.travel.blog/. Her blog is special. Her blog is full of detailed explanation of her temple visits all across India. When I say her blog is special, I truly mean it because what she delivers through her blog, I don’t do and I haven’t seen many of us doing. She is trying to keep the heritage and Indian culture alive in her small way, indeed through her blog posts. Please do visit her blog for more details and you will know that I was not exaggerating.

Questions and Answers

Why do you blog?
I blog because I like sharing my opinion and thoughts with others. I have always been outspoken and shy at the same time. By this I mean that, when I am close to someone I share almost every thing with her or him and if I don’t know you, I am just a stranger to you. When it comes to sharing my thoughts, I have my opinions on various things and I like to share them with others. So, blogging didn’t come to me by chance, but I planned it, and researched about it. Thus, here I am.

What makes a book good?
A good book is a book that has amazing and thoughtful content in it that is well written and well explained. If it is a non-fiction book like an educational book, it should be error free and explanatory. It should have all the information regarding that subject appropriate for that level. If the book is a fiction book, then it should have a strong story line and it should be interesting to the reader.

Whatever your blog is about, when and why did you get interested in that topic?
When I started to blog, my main motto was to educate people into biological science because I thought that this was what I can write about and it is what I am good at. Then after blogging for few months, I tried writing in different genre and found that I can write my thoughts well too. So, I started writing on inspirational messages and motivation. I also have a bad habit of exploring too many things at a time so you will find some posts on coloring, doodling, zentangles, etc too. I also read books and recently completed 12th book this year, so I also review books in my blog.

If you had to choose one of the blog posts you’re nominating that is your single favorite.
It’s really hard to do this, but since you are asking I would like to list one: What is a Home? What is a house? This is my all time favorite blog post and close to my heart.

What “genre(s)” of your niche do you like best? For example, for a cooking blog — desserts, meat, soups, etc. or for a writing blog (this one’s kind of obvious) — fantasy, short stories, horror, poetry, etc.
Since, I don’t do niche blogging, I am free to choose any genre and that is what I like the best about blogging. So, I can’t choose one genre, I like to write about many things. I am comfortable in writing about biological science because that is my career and my passion but I also like to write about me personal thoughts and hobbies that might interest and inspire others.

Where do you get inspiration for your hobbies/interests/talents?
These day WordPress is my only source of inspiration. My interest in reading other bloggers post has increased a lot and I like reading blog posts and commenting. As far as hobbies are concerned, I have too many of them. I have a zeal to learn many things and explore many things. I feel one life is not enough to learn every thing.

Besides whatever your blog is about, what is your hobby/interest/talent?
Besides blogging, I like to read books (English and Hindi), playing Farmville, and eating my husband’s head (joking!!). What interests me, is everything on my blog. I am what my blog is.

Which of your posts has been the most popular? Reflect on this… why, do you think? Do you agree, or are you annoyed by it? Is it really your best work or is it just what seems like would appeal to readers (in your opinion)?
I never took so close look on any particular post of mine so I won’t be able to answer this. Why any blog post reaches popularity is not always related to whether the post was interesting, well written or not. I think the popularity to blog post is due to how many people reached to that post. I may be wrong though, I don’t know.

What motivates you in life? (This is a broad question – answer however you interpret it)
I generally get motivated by someone’s journey through life. It can be anyone. My parents, my friends, my in laws, my husband all motivate me at some point or the other in my life. I feel I am not what I am alone, I am what my parents and my family helped me to be. I owe my life to them.

Is this the first time you’ve gotten one of these awards?
No, this is not the first blogger award that I got but this is certainly the second Sunshine Blogger Award that I received.

Do you ever feel nervous before publishing a blog post?
Yes, I do. I have also experienced that the more nervous I am the more positive response I get from you all.

My nominees for This Award are

As in my previous nominations for blogger awards I experienced that many bloggers do not turn up for the awards (which is absolutely fine) and all my efforts in getting their links and pasting in my post get wasted so I have stopped nominating anyone for Blogger Awards now. Those who seriously want to answer such amazing questions please do comment in below, I will nominate them all.

For my nominations, the questions will remain the same.

Thank you so much for hanging up with me for so long. I will meet you all lovely people in my next blog post. Till then, stay safe and live well.

Namrata
