I am just amazed at my newly found WordPress blogging community. Not only can you find creative, unique and beautiful people here but everyone is just so supportive, appreciative and helpful! I’m sure everyone has their own busy lives offline, families to take care of, exams to take, projects to make, errands to run, patients to save but somehow we all manage to make our online lives a little better by being positive in our own little ways.
For that I am honored to be nominated by Jane Arney of Infinite Windows for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Yaaay!!! Her blog has quite a unique take on religion and art, you should go check her out.
By now I have learned that some people do not do awards (as there are no hard and fast rules or criteria for the nominations and it seems “chain-lettery” except that it does not include the threat of death if you do not pass it on to ten people, etc, etc…). So, to me, as tedious as it may be, to accept such is an honor to be recognized amongst your fellow bloggers. It is kinda like a virtual pat on the back. I also do not blame others for not following through on their award nominations. To each his own.
I did try to research some more on its origins but nothing substantial came out, unlike the other awards. I guess it is to strengthen women bloggers all over the world by empowering and encouraging them to continue to let their voices be heard.
Without further ado, here are the rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to their site
2. Put the award logo on your blog
3. Answer the ten questions sent to you
4. Make a list of ten questions for your nominees
5. Nominate seven blogs. (I won’t be doing seven this time.)
1. When was a time in your life when you really took a chance?
~ Last year, I took a huge chance in loving and forgiving someone. Let’s just leave it at that.
2. What are your goals for your blog this year?
~ I don’t really set any goals. I just blog whenever I can, whenever the mood strikes me. I have learned a lot over the past months on my own through self discovery and of course, through Blogging 101 class and I will continue to learn and grow as a blogger. I am proud to say that my blog will be turning a year old next month!
3. If you could go back in time, which era and place would you prefer, and why?
~ the 80s. I was in high school, great friends, good times, “tidal wave” aqua net sprayed hairstyles, new wave music, no obligations (except to pass high school), just pure fun!
4. Where do you most want to travel that you haven’t yet visited and why?
~ That would be hard to answer. I have a lot in my list but off the top of my head: Europe (art and culture), Peru (Machu Picchu), Turkey (Pamukkale and Cappadocia), Greece (the ruins). And sooo many more!
5. If money was no object, what work would you want to do?
~ Traveler and photographer. That obvious. 🙂
6. What is your favorite childhood memory?
~ When my dad would tell me and my brother stories about his youthful “adventures” in his hometown and we would lay beside him mesmerized and captivated
7. Which superpower would you most like to have?
~ To fly. So I can travel and see the world for free
8. What was the last book you read?
~ Promise Me by Richard Paul Evans
9. What is your favorite quote (just one!)?
~ Find a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life!
10. What is your favorite charity or cause, and why?
~ Habitat for Humanity. I worked with this organization for three years and I believe that everyone has the right to decent housing. Having a home of your own, no matter how simple and basic, can empower lives and uplift morales.
I hereby nominate my fellow female bloggers to the Sisterhood (I apologize if you have been nominated in the past for the same award). You are all amazing!!!
