MY FIRST BLOGGING AWARD - The Liebster Award 2017

Hello Everyone,

I am so happy to share this wonderful moment with you all.  The great bloggers from far away, Australia and Pakistan, bumped into my blog, found it as latent and nominated it.  I have not had this blog for very long.  I launched “Scenario of Life” just 10 days ago and was fortunate enough to be nominated for The Liebster Award two times in a week.  Delighted!  Huge thanks to “team Patroni” and Mukarram Ali Qureshi for nominating me.  These are my very first nomination, so I really appreciate it.

John and Renee’s kind words:  Preeti, you deserved it.  Your blog looks great & has great potential.  This means a lot, John and Renee, for a newbie like me and I am so flattered.

John and Renee refer to themselves as “team Patroni”, they love to travel.  Their travel blog Drink, Eat, Ride provides great insights into beautiful destinations at the same time food and drinks into the countries they visit. Take a look at their blog here.

Mukarram Ali Qureshi is a person who is extremely interested in science.  And as his blog name goes A Scientific Perspective, he talks about science.  His blog covers science and its relationship with everything.  Take a look at his blog here.

I am so glad I have got to know John & Renee and Mukarram Ali Qureshi, which I would not have if I had not started this blog!

The Liebster award (Global Aussie Liebster Award) is an online award given by bloggers to other bloggers that helps to spread the love and this is how bloggers acknowledge other bloggers they think are fabulous and this award links blogs to each other in terms of an interview.  Also, it’s the nicest way to discover the new bloggers, who have potential, in the vast blogosphere.

Now, you must be wondering what does the word Liebster mean? so let me tell you that the word ‘liebster’ is a German word which means dearest, sweetheart, beloved, favorite.

Once you have been nominated you are given a set of questions to answer and then you get to "pass it on" to other bloggers that you admire.

And here the Interview begins:

My answers to John and Renee’s (my first nominator) posed questions:

1.  What do you enjoy most about blogging?
The most I enjoy about blogging is expressing my thoughts and sharing an opinion with others, being able to be creative with words and ideas.  Having a platform where you can connect with the outer world is the biggest blogging benefit I feel.

2.  What do you do when you get writer’s block?
Well, you must have read in my first post that I do poetry and yeah I get writer’s block a lot, I just can’t figure out the words to write, my creative juices just does not flow at times.  Then what I do.?  I don't write, I just do something else with my time, like listening to music, reading a book, surfing the internet or just spend time with my family and friends.

3.  Give a tip to other bloggers or potential blog starters:
Well, personally being a new blogger I don’t know if I can answer this question to the point, but still I would like to say that - don’t compare yourself to any other blogger out there, everyone has their own writing style, so just stick to your personality and write in that way only.  And yeah one cant be a star overnight so just be patience, “Success does not come easily,” even if it looks that way; it takes time and a lot of hard work too.

4.  Is blogging a full-time job for you?
No, blogging is not a full-time job for me.  But you never know, one day it might be.  I just do not know now.

5.  What has been your favorite country, why?
Can I skip the question, please? It's really tough to answer this one.

6.  If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I would stay right where I am, my hometown.  My roots are here.  But, still, to answer your question, I would say Australia, maybe Sydney or Melbourne.

7.  Country or beach?
It depends!  For a living, it's country.  And for vacation, a beach would be the winner, no doubt.

8.  What is your ultimate goal for your blog?
I like to express my thoughts via writing but as of now I don’t have an ultimate goal with my blog, except to reach out to as many people as I can with my posts and making my subscriber list.

9.  What advice would you give someone wanting to travel?
My advice would be to prearrange and consider every possible angle.  Make sure you have everything you need.

10.  What post are you most proud of, link it here.
As I am a newbie into blogging, there are only 2 posts in my archive now and I would like to link the first one.  Click here to read it.

11.  What is your favorite travel quote?
Travel brings power and loves back into your life. -Rumi
