About the award

Outstanding Blogger Award’ was created by Colton Beckwith in May 2020.

This is that same award that’s coming around the blogging sphere as the ‘Original Outstanding Blogger Award’. I did a little backward tracing to find how ‘Original’ got added to the name of the award. The creator’s post has the word ‘original’ in the slug of the URL to indicate its introduction. And, as days passed, it tweaked its name itself. 😛

Rules:

Expand to read
  1. Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (Very important! See why in step 5.)
  2. Answer the questions provided.
  3. Create 7 unique questions.
  4. Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator nor the blogger that nominated you can be nominated.
  5. At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!

My answers to the questions from ‘Bright Minds’:

  1. What are the best three phrases to describe yourself?  

    Self-confident, Lone wolf, and Outspoken!

Wanna Know You Better!!

Crazy Nerds has been nominated for ‘Wanna Know You Better’ question challenge, by 2 bloggers – Era and  Introseeker. Thank you both!

I’ve already expressed too many details of myself in the last two tags, and here’s another challenge posed to know more about me.

Rules

Expand to read
  1. Title the blog post as “Wanna know you better!!” (try to make your post pictorial as this will make it look interesting).
  2. Mention Riya’s blog and the one who nominated you.
  3. Copy all the questions and answer them one by one.
  4. You may create your own questions for your targets (it will be fun).
  5. Pass the game as a challenge to any of your favorite bloggers and mention them in your post.

Answers to the questions posed:

  1. Have you ever been foolhardy? When? Why? Describe briefly.  

    I don’t think I’ve been foolishly bold to take up any risk. I usually reason before taking risks, unless it’s an emergency.

  2. How do you prefer the curtains, drawn or pulled apart?

    This depends on the hour of the day. In my room, I keep them pulled apart in the morning to get some light, and leave them drawn from forenoon to evening leaving my room shady, and open them wide again until I sleep. It’s good to be in the dark, at times.

  3. What kind of a “dream home” do you dream about?

    I guess I’m already living in my dream home. I love the place. If at all I need an addition, I’d make some arrangements for a mini library.

About this tag

The tag has its origin from Xandria’s blog. In her own words,

The motive of this tag is to reflect the happy little things in our life and appreciate them. Continue reading

‘The Small Joys’ Tag

Phoenix, big thanks to you for tagging me to ‘The Small Joys’ tag. She’s an author, also helping out aspiring writers through her writing clubs. Do check out her blog.

Rules for this tag are simple.

  • Thank the blogger who tagged you.
  • List 15 of your Small Joys. (They can be as weird, random, and silly as you want to make them.)
  • Tag 5 blogger friends who bring you joy (and feel free to say why they bring you joy). Have fun with it!

 

My 15 Small Joys:

➟ Watching squirrels eat, esp. walnuts. They are very tactful. They climb the tree, come back with a nut, sit in a comfortable position, bang it hard on the wall repeatedly until the shell breaks, and finally taste the nuts inside. Hardworking naughty species!

➟ Beautiful sunset accompanied by the sounds of birds flying back to their nest – It’s a visual feast. Continue reading
