Blogger Recognition Award

Thank you to Luna for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award. I still don’t understand why people nominate me but I really appreciate it. So thank you very much.

Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.

Okay, I’m gonna nominate Luna and myself. Next task…just kidding :). To anyone who reads this, feel nominated. I don’t want to nominate anyone in particular because I think that all of you out there deserve this award. Otherwise, none of this blogging stuff would be possible. Newcomers wouldn’t know how or where to start and even the advanced bloggers among us (not me :D) might still learn a thing or two from all those amazing pieces of advice. So, go ahead.

Write a post to show off your award!

Why did I start my blog? Actually, I always liked the idea of having a blog and I started it without any idea of what to write about. As the name suggests, it began as a blog about, well, the idiosnycrasies of life. Later on, I decided to use it to post some of my creative writing stuff and that’s what the blog should be about in the future. So basically this blog was always destined to be a place for my thoughts in any form whatsoever.

My piece of advice: Whenever you start a blog be patient and keep at it. I made the mistake not to blog in a very long time. It was only when I started posting regularly that I gained more followers and views. It will take some time before your blog starts growing. Don’t lose your motivation even if it might be hard at the beginning. Stay yourself. Don’t try to write in a style that’s not you. People will recognize that. When you blog and write regularly your style will improve automatically.

Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them.

Brotherhood of the World Bloggers Award

It happened again. I got nominated by Tiegan for the Brotherhood of the World Bloggers Award and didn’t even prepare a speech – much less another attempt at poetry. Shame on me. Thank you, Tiegan. First things first: Listing her nominees Tiegan wrote that all of them are girls and I don’t blame her. But let me tell you, I’m a guy, a dude, male, a…bro. So to all of you who might stumble across this post welcome 2 da hood. Just kidding 🙂

Back on topic. These are the rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to them – check
List the rules and place the logo for the award on the post – check
Answer the questions
Nominate other blogs
Set them some questions

Tiegan’s questions:

1. What’s your dream pet?
A little penguin that wears a tiny hat. I’d call him George and we’d be best buddies.

2. If you had a child what would you name them?
Never thought about a boy but if it was a girl I’d call her Anna. It’s such a beautiful name.

3. What’s the one movie that you could watch over and over again?
There are a few like Fight Club or Napoleon Dynamite.

4. What’s your fondest childhood memory?
I’d say Christmas: baking cookies with my grandma, building Lego things with my dad…I really liked that.

5. What’s your idea of a dream date?
There’s no general answer to that. I think it just has to feel right and that’s something you can only determine during individual dates.

6. What do you think your best personality trait is?
I can keep secrets.

7. Cats or dogs?
Neither. A penguin 🙂

Concerning my nominations, I nominate all the bros who might come across this post 🙂

My questions:

1. Who’s your childhood hero (real or fictional)?
2. Which song makes you happy?
3. Did a (special line in a) song ever answer a question for you that haunted you for a long time?
4. Which fictional or historical character would you like to meet in your life and why?
5. What’s the most important lesson you learned in life?
6. Which country would you like to visit?

Once upon a time…

A strange comment hath been brought unto this blog
That with mine own eyes I belivèd not
A nomination has been placed upon my very existence
It alloweth no struggle, not ever the slightest resistance
Still don’t believe this, my forehead laid in creases
I’m so grateful and in the fineth possible manner
My many thanks shall reach thine blog – letters2emma

After this attempt at a poem I have to say thank you again to letters2emma who nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award.

These are the rules:
1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Did that already. Swish 😀
2. List seven random facts about yourself.
Oh dear 😀 We’ll here we go:

1.  Back in class five or six I thought people could grow hair on their teeth. We have a saying where I come from that people who are pretty harsh with words got hair on their teeth. I took it literal.
2. I hate my own birthday because I can’t stand being the center of attention. I’m simply not that kind of guy.
3. Half of my life’s philosophy is build up on Homer Simpson and lyrics.
4. I wanna have a penguin for a pet and call him George. He’d wear a tiny hat and literally be the coolest pet in town. Go for it, George 😀
5. It’s always been difficult for me to talk about my problems. So, I started writing my own lyrics when I was twelve and it has been my therapy ever since.
6. I wrote a book once because I always wanted to do it. So I did. I don’t intend to get it published except maybe on another blog.
7. My favorite poem is somewhere i have never traveled by e.e. cummings.

Well, those were some more or less interesting facts about me. Hope you enjoyed some of them.

3. Last but not least, I gotta nominate seven other bloggers. So I nominate whoever reads this and wants to do a post on the award 🙂

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

Feel free to comment and share your thoughts.

Liebster Award

Dear readers (I’d love to write followers but that sounds like some kind of cult 🙂 ) I was nominated by unfashionablecupcake (great name, by the way) for the Liebster Award. As a man of few words I can only say thank you very much (I really appreciate it) and recommend you guys check out her blog: I like her honest way of writing. Here’s the necessary evil – the rules: Once you’ve been nominated, make a post thanking the person who nominated you and linking to their blog. Include the Liebster Award sticker. Nominate 10 blogs that you feel deserve this award, and let them know you’ve nominated them by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you if you want. Ensure that all of these blogs have less than 200 followers. Answer the 10 questions set by the blogger, and ask 10 questions for your nominees to answer. Copy these rules into your post. ALL NOMINEES ARE FREE TO REJECT OR ACCEPT THIS AWARD. Those are her questions:

  1. Favourite person in the music industry? There have been and still are awesome musicians out there. It’s impossible for me to name just one. But I admire and respect those who stay true to themselves and don’t forget who they are even with all the fame.
  2. Dress or skirt? I’m male, so neither. Although I might look pretty awesome in the right dress (just kidding 🙂 )
  3. Favourite animal (mythical or real) Bim Bam Bino. It was a series on German TV when I was a kid. Bim Bam Bino is a puppet mouse I still love to day. The hero of my childhood
  4. Harry Styles or Liam Payne? Who? 😀
  5. Place you would love love love to go to? I’d love to go to Amsterdam and watch Ajax Amsterdam play.
  6. What is your no.1 book? Grimm’s Fairytales. I grew up with these. Besides that there are too many awesome books out there.

  8. In 5 words, sum up the blogs you are nominating? personal, informative, honest, versatile, thought-provoking
  9. Random-est thing you have ever done? I’ve done a lot of things before thinking about the consequences. Thus, I made a lot of mistakes.
  10. Person you would most like to meet? My late grandfather who died when I was only two. I think he was an awesome man and I’d like to get to really know him.
