Liebster Blog Award Nomination
I logged on to my IndiBlogger account today to find an IndiMail from Nikhil. (http://aficionadolog.blogspot.in/) He has nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. Thank you Nikhil! It is highly appreciated. How thoughtful of you!
Blogging has always been a nice experience for me. To share what you ponder, raise your concern over what bothers you and get appreciation in return. By god’s grace, it has been only few months, and I’m being supported and appreciated by my readers beyond my expectation. Some look up to my posts and wait for them. Such people motivate me to write. I feel happy, honored & privileged to have been nominated. I am excited to choose my nominees for the same.
I also take this opportunity to thank the Indiblogger community for their support :) I am grateful to my friends and fellow bloggers for your visits, kind comments and Indivotes. I feel super encouraged.
SO, WHAT IS A LIEBSTER AWARD?
Liebster is a German word that means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. It is said that the Liebster Blog Award started in Germany (probably) and is used to highlight new/recent/lesser known blogs or let say blogs with less than 200 followers.
Since I am new to the blogging world, I was not aware of the rules in detail. Thank you Nikhil for describing them so clearly.
Here go the rules:
1. Each nominee must thank and link back the person who nominated them.
2. Answer the 10 questions given to you by the nominator.
3. Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.
4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them. It's completely optional to accept the award. If you want you accept it, answer the questions and nominate others.
The question/answer phase is one of the most exciting parts about these awards.
Here are my answers to Nikhil’s questions:
>In a dilemmic situation, would you listen to your heart or your brain & why?
Actually it depends on the demand of the situation. In matters of heart, I’ll listen to my heart because most decisions related to the heart matters fail when you decide them using your ‘smart’ brain. Your head tells you the facts, wrongs and rights of the matter in question, your heart quite simply loves or hates. I use the brain only when it is needed for me to be highly calculative and conscious. Otherwise, the heart does it all! Sometimes, you may even need to use both. :P
>Choose between an “Unlimited internet connection for a month” & “1 month of your favorite food delicacy”?
I would go with the former :P In today’s world, internet hai, toh sab kuch hai :P I think, it is unsaid of how our lives stop when we have a slow internet connection or no internet at all. Just the imagination of the thought, gets your mind rolling towards the tasks that would remain unaccomplished if you have no internet connection. And about the food, I can order food online, using the ‘unlimited’ internet connection I would have :P
> 5 rare random facts that most people don’t know about you?
a. Morbid jealousy – my vice.
b. I am a powerful silent observer.
d. Extremely loyal.
e. Shy, mysterious :P
> Fictional character (from a book/movie/tv show) that you think closely resembles you.
Asin’s character, Kalpana (Jadu ki Chhadi) from Ghajini :P
>Congratulations , you have been just given the opportunity to travel back in time. Which year or occasion & why?
Starting my blog! ;)
>Coke or Pepsi?
Pepsi, for the simple reason that it tastes better than Coke :P
>First thing you would do if you win the lottery (amount can be the maximum you can think of right now) :D
A long exhale and then scream ‘woooohhhooooo’ :P
>One thing that annoys you the most?
> Something that you would love to do but are too afraid to?
Fall in love.
> A superpower or a lot of money….and justify your choice?
Tricky question. A super power of making a lot of money. What say?! :P
The huge task now: My nominees: (in no particular order)
