I have already received the Unique Blogger Award and the Awesome Blogger Award, so this makes 3 for me. My favorite blogger Fandango This, That and The Other Random Musings on Life Society and Politics just nominated me for the Liebster award. He writes a lot of character based blogs that tell short stories and seriously if you are not familiar with his blog, you definitely need to check him out, because he is sure to male you smile. He actually thought that it was possible that this Liebster award may have been a misspelling of the word “lobster”. Now that is funny and I found out that there is actually is an American ticketing company named Fandango that sells movie tickets and features reviews on movie awards and they did a review of the movie Lobster which you can read here www.fandango.com/thelobster_186318/awards. Fandango told me that his blogger name comes from that Queen song Bohemian Rhapsody and I need to thank him for honoring me with this nomination.
I am not really deserving of this award, as it is supposed to celebrate new bloggers who show great potential and it should only be given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I just checked and as of today, I saw that I have 251. I also need to answer 11 questions then I’m supposed to nominate five other bloggers who I think are deserving of the Liebster award and ask each of them the same 11 questions.
The 11 questions are:
#1: If you could be anywhere in the world, where would you like to be right now?
I have always wanted to visit Southern Europe, so I will say Rome, Italy.
#2. What is your favorite hobby?
I like golf!
#3. Name one person you admire and why?
Bob Dylan for refusing to accept the 2016 Nobel literature prize.
#4. What do you hope to accomplish, if anything, from blogging?
It passes my time, while keeping me out of trouble.
#5. Name one thing that you absolutely detest.
Whining bloggers that complain about their personal issues.
#6. What inspires you the most?
Purchasing lottery tickets.
#7. If you could live at any time in history, when would it be and why?
The Black Plague of the Dark Ages.
#8 Name something on your bucket list.
#9. What do you think awaits us beyond death?
Saint Peter and the pearly gates.
#10. Do you believe we, individually, have a life’s purpose?
The world is one big birthday cake, so have a slice on me.
#11. Name a “super-power” you’d like to have.
Wisdom that gives me the ability to see the truth.
My questions which are to be answered by the nominees that I will select.
- What do you do when you are not blogging?
- Do you spend more time per day writing your blog or reading other blogs?
- What is your favorite writing challenge to participate in?
- Have you ever won any other blogging awards?
- Do you think that your blogging has improved since your first blog?
- What advice would you give someone who is thinking about starting a blog?
- Do you have any pets?
- If you met a genie that gave you 3 wishes, what would they be?
- What are you most afraid of?
- Do you have a bucket list, and if so name one thing that is on it?
- Is there something that keeps you going on a bad day?
Now for the hard part of nominating 5 other bloggers as it is not like they are getting a Pulitzer prize. I hate perpetuating chain letters and I admit that all of these blogging awards are stupid, but on the other hand, I am always looking for something to write about. I am apologizing in advance in case you think that this is nothing more than an annoying chain letter that you don’t want to waste your time with. I can see how this award could be viewed as a participation trophy, as it is just a virtual award and you actually don’t win anything of any value, but in my opinion, you are all good bloggers whose posts I enjoy reading. It will take some effort if you decide to accept this award, as you will need to answer the questions that I ask you, use these same questions or create a new list of questions for your own nominees and of course keep this going by selecting 5 bloggers that you want to nominate for this prestigious award and notify them.
Without further ado, my nominees are:
