real neat blog award

Thank you 4 Year Old Adult for nominating me! I hope I’m not too late with this post. I am new to WordPress and was pleasantly surprised to see this although it does feels a little like the infamous Ice Bucket Challenge (for which I was challenged but straight out refused to make and share a video of my embarrassing reaction to being doused in ice cold water, thank you). It still seems like a fun little way to get to know and interact with fellow bloggers so here are the rules:

1. PUT THE AWARD LOGO ON YOUR BLOG.

2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.

5. Ask 7 question to the ones you have nominated. This wasn’t on the list but I think it’s a logical addition.

6. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

Here goes:

1. PUT THE AWARD LOGO ON YOUR BLOG. Done. Don’t be a dumb-ass. Check the top of the page.

2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

Do you ever bother about what people think about you? Unfortunately, against by better judgement, I do. It’s like a pre-set program in my head I’m trying to erase. It’s the reason I feel my life has not reached it’s optimal potential. I have a pathological need to obsess about what people think about me (or what I think they think about me) and the outcome of this obsession is never productive.

Rate WordPress and social-media on a scale of ten. Erm…..I give it an 8 which is the best I’ve given to any social-media because I can write to my heart’s content although I’m not sure if it’s the WordPress platform or my anonymity that earned it such a high accolade. I know for a fact that my posts on Facebook are limited because friends and family tend to obsess and draw conclusion about my life from them. The only reason I keep Facebook is also the reason I hate Facebook – stalking.

What was the real purpose of starting a blog? When I was in grade school, I loved creative writing. No matter how grounded in life the topics were, I had the flare to take a relatively plain essay topic and turn into an extraordinary piece of fiction. Whether they were good or not , I don’t know. What I do know is the rush I got from writing them. Years of institutional education killed that flare. My real purpose for starting this blog was an attempt at getting back my writing high. 

Have you ever tried to spam people for increasing the hits on your blog? Oh I didn’t know you could do that on WordPress. Does it work? Thank for the idea! 😛

How do you rate blogging as a career opportunity? I’ve never thought of blogging as a career opportunity but I have heard of people who have done it successfully. It’s not a career opportunity for me but if you’re good at it why not? 

Have you ever hit on your fellow blogger? (This is the kinky one) My husband-to-be is on WordPress. I hit on him every opportunity I get 😉

Observing the current situation all around the world, Do you think that the world needs a makeover? Is this a rhetorical question? How can the answer to this question ever be ‘no’?

3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs. Thank you again 4 Year Old Adult. I hope you never grow up!

4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs. I haven’t had the opportunity to interact with a whole lot of bloggers. I will nominate the few that I have had some interactions with.

Erm….I can’t think of anyone else. Can I nominate you again 4 Year Old Adult? Don’t judge! I’m a self admitted unnecessarily complicated introvert.

5. Ask 7 question to the ones you have nominated. My questions are :

1. Has blogging influenced your life in anyway – positive or negative?

2. What kind of blogs do you enjoy reading?

3. What are some of your simple pleasures in life?

4. What/who got you started on WordPress?

5. Any bad experiences in the WordPress community (creeps, stalkers etc.)?

6. Facebook or WordPress – what is your preferred social media platform?

7. Pirates or Ninjas?

Looking forward to your responses 🙂

6. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.) Done and done! So when do I get my award? 😛
