Real Neat Blog Award

Hi, everyone! I am so delighted to receive a message from Didi over at Didi’s Art Design that he nominated me for a “Real Neat Blog Award“. First of all, I would like to Thank Didi for this! I feel honoured that he really took the time in including me in the list. Sincerely, Thank You, Didi, as I feel always inspired when people take notice of my blog. I’m pretty sure a lot of you bloggers out there feel the same as well. Cheers to us all.

As part of the nomination, Didi threw questions at me. So, here are my answers as well:

1.) What can you do to make the world better you live in?

I believe doing good all the time, even if others are not, will not or cannot is enough contribution. 

It is the same with Mahatma Gandhi’s quote – “If you want to change the world, be the change that you seek.”

2.) What is for you the purpose of life?

To experience the highs and lows of life and to embrace its dualities. A practice for greater spirituality and peace.  

Read Wisdom on Life – “This Too Shall Pass.”

3.) What is your hobby?

I love travelling with my family. Meanwhile, we are on the go for short getaways and food trips all the time. Photography and scrapbooking give me pleasure but blogging is my new addition to this routine. Reading books and all things inspirational are my passion since childhood.

4.) If you had 3 wishes free what would you wish?

  • Good health all the time for us all.
  • More opportunities and fulfilment of goals.
  • More wishes. =)

5.) What is most annoying for you?

Not the most, but I guess I do not fit in well with a narcissist.

6.) What are for you the most important virtues of man?

Sincerity and Faith.

7.) Do you think violence can be stopped with violence or war with war to achieve peace?

No to war nor hate. Compassion and Communication are the keys to Peace.

Thanks to Didi for his queries. I hope you readers enjoyed reading them as much as I did answering them all.

Real Neat Blog Award

By the way, if you are wondering what is a “Real Neat Blog” award? I am not pretty sure at first until I researched that this award is created by Petrel41 for the love of recognising and connecting with fellow bloggers. Thus, I am grateful to her as well for this opportunity of being able to showcase some of the noteworthy blogs I know out there and get to know them from their answers to some queries. If you are not on the list, please don’t be disheartened as this award can be for everyone out there.

I believe all bloggers deserve a recognition, an honour and a pat on the back for all the hard work each put into their craft. I believe that each blog is a masterpiece! Thus if it is really your heart’s desire to be included, please feel courageous and free to comment below because I am very willing to include you in the list among already listed here.

About this award, like all the other ones out there, the mechanics are:

  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. Create new questions for your nominated blogs

    Thank you very much, dear Lyn 🙂 You did a great job in answering all questions 🙂

    One small correction: I am a man 🙂
    But do not worry, this happens to many people as Didi is usually a Woman’s name (in India it has the meaning: Elder sister, but my real name is Dietmar and everyone called me Didi since I was a baby.

    Thank you, Lyn and all good wishes for you and your family 🙂
    Didi

    Hello Lyn,
    Thank you so much for nominating me. That is very kind of you.

    Here are some answers to your questions:

    1- How did you come across my blog and what features, posts or categories do you like?
    A) I’m not sure if I found you on the WP Discover feed or followed my instinct and checked out your blog, after you liked one of my articles. Either way, I’m happy I did.

    2- What inspires you to blog?
    A) Sharing what I have learned is the strongest motivation for me. I start different features for different reasons, usually upon the request or need of my friends. For example, my Creative Process is for my niece who is an artist, my People in my neighbourhood feature is a thank you to special people who inspire me, and my Fun Fotos is really for my fun.

    3- Is there any blogging difficulty that you want to overcome?
    A) right now I am on a learning curve and want to increase my followers, likes, comments, and affiliate marketing sales.

    4 – What is one perfect day for you?
    A) I can’t answer that succinctly. Everyday offers something to be grateful for and that is the blessing I choose to focus on.

    5) What motivates you to wake up in the morning or to live life?
    A) Getting things done and learning something new!

    6) Is there one particular inspirational quote or mantra in life that you really love?
    A) No particular one, there are so many and they are ever-changing as I grow.

    7) If you are given the chance to swap places with someone you look up to who could that be? Why?
    A) Maybe Richard Branson for his can do mindset, but I wouldn’t give up what I have to switch.

    8) What for you is the most challenging part of life – growing up, getting old or finding life’s purpose?
    A) Finding and pursuing life’s purpose, for sure. It took me a very long time to decide to follow my passion for writing and to say no to a great many things that distract me from it. Since I have followed this passion I’ve been offered many opportunities far greater than I ever imagined possible… AND YES, I will be writing about them on my blog when I am legally permitted to.
    So, I have to say and share that following your passions will pay off and much more!

    Thank you, Lyn for your questions and kind heart.

    M.

    Thank you so much for nominating me. However my plate is really full at the moment with all my writing and four blogs to balance that unfortunately I cannot take on anything else at the moment. I do enjoy your blog and do appreciate you liking one of mine and thinking of me.
