THE BLOGGER INTERVIEW TAG

Some people never forget us, Erika is one such beautiful friend. I often quote that, she has ‘Kind’ in her name so, what else can we say. She is an all-rounder, you must visit her blog to get a feel of what I mean. She has offered me an Interview tag recently.

So, here are the rules:

* Mention the person who tagged you
* Answer the questions in full
* Don’t forget to tag up to ten other bloggers at the end

Here is my take on the questions:

How did you get into blogging?

New country, new mission, and new turmoils of my life couldn’t have been more fruitful. I have always been aware of my love for writing but, my laziness always turns out to be the champ.When the turbulence of my mind crossed a level of saturation, I resorted to my true love i.e. writing. In just over 10 months, it has exceeded my expectations.

What advice would you give to a blogger just starting out?
just pour your heart out. Target the hearts, numbers would follow.

What would be your dream campaign?
Cook a new food item every day, and fill the world with food

Do you have a plan for your blog?
Planning kills the fun. It’s good to be impulsive in these matters. I like controlling the sails in an open sea, let’s see where the boat takes me.

What do you think about rankings?
Rankings with well-defined and specific parameters gives us a good idea about the quality. However, one should not trust them blindly.

I would like to nominate following bloggers for this tag:

Ajay

Sneha

Saaransh

Melanie

Befree2love

Swati

Ramblin’ Rose

Arpita

Divya

Marymuema

Congratulations!!

Blogger Recognition Award

This time, Rachael has decided to enhance my happiness quotient by nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award. Check out her blog ASAP, you are missing out on a lot of amazing stories. Erika never fails to glorify my weekend. She has once again nominated for an award, and I am thankful to her. Jumping on to the rules directly:

4. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
5. List who you’ve nominated in the post and link your post to Edge of Night.

HOW MY BLOG CAME INTO EXISTENCE

The primary reasons behind the existence of my blog are:

1. Taiwan

2. The person who must not be named

3. A desire to find a escape route from life

I have always had a thing (or two) about writing, and that is why I was in the editorial team of the School Magazine during my high school. I have always believed that even a abuse can be made sweeter by proper framing of words. Those who are thinking of throwing a challenge at me, spare me please. 😉

ADVICE FOR NEW BLOGGERS

1. Do not run after the number of follows or likes madly. Just keep posting stuff and continue reading the works of fellow bloggers.     Numbers would come naturally.

2. A better way to connect is to link your social media handles to your blog and use the WordPress widgets to show them on your page.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Blogging is an amazing thing, it introduces us to some of the most precious personalities of the world. One such unbelievable person is Erika. She has a well-planned and meaningful blog. When you visit her site, do not forget to go to the song section. She has humbled me once again by nominating me for the “Dragon’s Loyalty Award”.

Then again, Elizabeth gave me a good reason to feel proud of having such friends in the blogosphere. I am thankful that she considered me for this award. You should visit her blog, her flair is ineffable.

Here are the rules:

  1. Thank the giver and link their blog to your post.
  2. Pass the award on to other bloggers of your choice and let them know that they have been nominated.
  3. Give 7 facts about yourself.

Let me see if I can present seven facts about me:

1. This one is going to generate some special interest in your minds. My first crush was about 25 years older than me. I am I have always had this special thing about the older ladies.  If you think History is boring, browse through my romantic           history. 😉

2. I have faced a situation, when I had to break up with a girl because I’d sent her a gift and it got received by her Hitler-look-alike mom. Do you think that sending roses and teddy is a good way to say sorry? Think again.

3. During my childhood, I scratched a CD-ROM disc to find out what it is made up of and I was given a royal treatment for that creative action.

4. Before I got to know about the round shape of earth and gravity, I believed that one can see Hungary if he/she stands on a cliff in Slovakia. I did not realize that it has turned out to be a geek joke.

The Starlight Blogger Award

My new blogger friend Karuna has given me a pleasant way to begin this week. My thoughts always resonate with the underlying tone of her posts, and that is why I have her on board. Does that sound selfish? 😉

She has nominated me for “The Starlight Blogger Award”. The primary objective of this award is to highlight and promote inspiring bloggers. The rules of the award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you for the award.

2. Answer the questions set to you and then you may create your set of questions for your nominees.

3. Nominate other bloggers.

This is my take on the questions asked by Karuna:

1. What would you say is your starlight gift for others?

Ans: Take my poker face and analogies as gift, they are my best friends while dealing with the situations which I don’t like. Analogies are the best way to win arguments logically.   😉

2. What do you like to do to bring yourself out of a bad mood?

Ans: Retire to a peaceful place for few moments, think, recollect, and come back with a fresh vigor.

3. What was the first book you’ve ever read?

Ans: ‘Room on the Roof‘ by Ruskin Bond was my first book. I read it during my pre-high school days and I somehow liked the ways of it’s protagonist. You should read it to find out the details 😉

P.S.: I did not consider my Raj Comics while answering this question.

4. Who is your hero/idol?

Ans: I have never believed in idolizing a single person, everyone has the potential to inspire us. When observed carefully, even a Hitler can act as a hero.

5. What type of music do you enjoy?

Ans: I wish I had a better answer to this question. I never limit myself to specific genres of music or movies. Whatever appeals to me, enters my playlist. It can be ‘Fear of the Dark’, ‘Whickey lullaby’, or ‘Never too Late’.

6. What is your favorite book and why?

Ans: ‘Great Expectations’ by Charles Dickens has been topping this list since years. The only reason is that I like every aspect of Pip.

7. Do you have a favorite poem? If yes, who wrote it and why do you like it?

Ans.: I have always like Robert Frost’s ‘The Road Not Taken‘. It is one of the most inspiring piece of work I have ever read. It teaches us how a decision, one moment can change our life. This may sound like boasting but, I also like to read some of my own poems sometimes. For e.g. The Silent Footsteps, ‘The Moment of Love‘ etc.

8. What is one healthy habit you wish you could develop?

Ans: Warriors have been trying to stop me from biting nails since ages, but everybody failed to succeed. I wish I can get rid of this interesting hobby which amuses psychologists.

I nominate the following bloggers for this award:

1. Priya

2. Nimmi

3. A spirited diva

4. Stephanie

5. Rareity

The questions for these nominees are:

1. Do you believe in the Omnipotence paradox? Would you like to share your views on it?

2. What is the most crazy thing you have ever thought of doing?

3. Which is easier to find:  Unicorn or true love? 😉

4. If you are given the power to change one thing about this world, what would you change?

5. Which actor/actress should stop acting right away?

Each one of you deserves this award, congratulations.
