Getting a blog award is a great thing, isn’t it? I mean, who does not like getting appreciated for their work.
The thing about getting these blog awards is that it puts you in a powerful position. And I think we all remember what is said about power, don’t we?
And I would honestly like to say that I do not deserve to hold such a responsibility.
I understand that some awards are meant to promote my own blog and build a harmony in the blogging environment but it is very difficult to follow the meticulous detail (I already have a tough time following a recipe to make food for myself in the morning!).
Plus, a lot of them involve answering questions about myself. It kinds of puts me at an awkward position trying to answer some of them while maintaining anonymity.
So to all those people who have awarded me and to all those who are thinking of awarding me. I would like to thank you for the recognition but would like to gracefully decline.
My idea of recognition would be for us to like or share each other’s posts and have a discussion in the comment sections about those posts (seems like I nice idea – I hope?). If you want to have a more one-to-one discussion—which I am sure you don’t want to—you can always send me an email: email@example.com (would help if you drop a comment about the mail).
So, that’s it, I am done. If you are disappointed, I get it. You can shower all your hate on me. I am ready for it.
Having said all that, I do not mind answering questions as long as it does not render my blog name useless. So I am answering the questions without accepting the award.
Blabberwockying! asked me these thought provoking questions.
Q. What is life according to you?
Still trying to figure this out. As of now, I can say it is achieving and sharing happiness.
*one for you, one for you, one for you…*
Q. What is your goal or mission in life, if any.
World Domination (Through my work, of course – what did you think?)
Q. What is your favorite film(s)?
The Prestige (2006)
Q. What quality you like most about yourself?
The ability to not answer the question like they were intended to be answered.
Q. Who are your heroes or role models?
The Answer is – Batman. Its always Batman!
Q. Which is your dream destination?
Hogwarts. *Plays Harry Potter Music in the background*
Q. What do you prefer in life Peace or Success. Are they different for you. Why?
I am at peace when doing my work, which leads me to success. So, one sort of leads to another. So, they are both same same, but different, but still same.
Q. What are your hobbies?
I’m like Homer Simpson. I try my hand at everything but in the end always like eating the best. (yes, eating can be a hobby)
Q. Do you feel good about yourself, people around you and life in general?
Yeah, mostly. Except when I have to wake up in the morning. ‘Just 5 more minutes,’ is the biggest lie I tell myself everyday.
Q. What is the importance of gratitude according to you, if any?
Thank you for asking this question. 😛
Be grateful for things, so that life can give you more things to be grateful for.
Twisted Top in Flip Flops asked me these wonderfully cheeky questions.
Q. Choose a superpower and its complimenting Kryptonite, and explain to the world why?
I already have a superpower. The ability to do anything I want. It’s kryptonite – procrastination.
Q. Who is your favorite author who reflects your life and personality in their writing?
There is none. And none that can depict my personality in their writing but Joanne’s Harry Potter series is what pushed me to write better since I was young, so I will pick her.
Q. What flavor would you describe yourself as? And Why?
Chili because having me around just makes everything just that much sizzling.
Q. If you have to observe the world as a ghost, what would you see?
I would probably spend the time walking through walls.
Q. What is the one topic you would like to write about, but have always postponed?
I like this question. I think I will answer this later. 😉
I would be glad to take any more questions but no awards please. I won’t answer questions as quickly as comments. Sometimes it may take weeks, so be warned. (This should keep all the inquisitive bunch away).
