Oh, teh interwebs… it’s a strange virtual world we live in. We find ourselves suddenly connected to all sorts of people, most of whom we’ve never met in real life. And yet, like friends, we look forward to reading their blog posts, and perhaps their social media updates too.
So, it’s really rather wonderful when a fellow bloggy friend, whom you haven’t met in real life and who therefore isn’t completely biased, nominates your blog for an award. Who, me? Bring on the recognition! It feels good to be appreciated, so thank you ConvertibleLife for the honour!
Here are the rules for this award:
1) Include the award logo in a post or in your blog.
2) Answer 10 questions about yourself.
3) Nominate 10 to 12 other fabulous bloggers.
4) Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blog to let them know they are nominated.
5) Share the love and link the person who nominated you.
And here are my answers to these random questions:
Favorite color: That magical point in the spectrum where red meets pink.
Favorite number: Seven, because it’s a prime number, and I think they’re cool.
Favorite animal: Dogs. Specifically, mine. Aroo!!
Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Something caffeinated – espresso-based coffee in the morning; Earl Grey tea in the afternoon.
Prefer Facebook or Twitter: I can’t really make a comparison because I use the two platforms for totally different reasons: Facebook for keeping in touch with friends and family; Twitter for networking and keeping up-to-date with local goings-on. (I never liked Twitter until I discovered the fabulous TweetBot app. Best $3 I spent in the App Store.)
My Passion: Friends, laughter, colour, food.
Prefer giving or getting presents: I actually really enjoy giving gifts. I think I’m pretty good at picking out what I think someone would like, even when it’s not completely to my taste. (Of course, I also like the element of surprise, so getting gifts is nice too.)
Favorite pattern: Stripes. Love ‘em. Particularly horizontal ones.
Favorite day of the week: I think Saturday. I associate it with freedom.
Favorite flower: Ranunculus, peonies, roses, jasmine. How could I pick just one?
