I have been nominated by Carll @ The Pine-Scented Chronicles for this award. Here are the rules:
Put the award logo on your blog.
Answer the 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
Nominate any number of people linking to their blogs and let them know you nominated them by commenting on their blogs.
Come up with 7 questions for the people you nominated.
So here are my answers to Carll’s questions:
Tell me more about your blog; what motivated you to start?
Two things: First, I had just published a book myself on Amazon Kindle and wanted to post excerpts from it on a blog. And secondly, I was tired of creative writing and thought I would post some poems I wrote a long time ago, and also write reviews of other books – which I love doing.
What inspires you to keep on blogging or writing?
I’m enjoying the process; I love to comment on other blogs; talking about books and writing is such fun.
Off the blogs you’ve written, which do you like the best?
I think I like best the review of Patrick de Witt’s first novel “Ablutions” because I love the book so much.
What book or movie best depicts your life?
Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac. She had a very strict father!
How are you coping with lock down?
I hate when all the shops are shut – it reminds me of Sundays long ago.
What three things have I learned during lock down?
I live alone and I love it, and during these days I’m very happy to have an excuse to spend more time alone. I hate wearing a mask – it steams up my glasses. There are two kinds of people – those who follow the social distance rule, and those who won’t.
Give one piece of advice to those who would like to begin a blog of their own.
Have everything clear in your mind; what you want to blog about, how often you want to do it, and learn from those you are following.
Thanks Carll @ The Pine-Scented Chronicles for the nomination, I appreciate it; it’s a real fun thing to do.
My nominees are:
- How much time to you spend blogging every day or week?
- How many bloggers do you follow?
- Have you more time to blog during lock down?
- Do you have a long list of books to read, music to hear, blogs to write?
- Who is your absolute favourite author/musician?
- Do you feel under pressure to blog, or write, or review, or read?
- Do you really enjoy blogging?
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did.
