Liebster Award, thanks Isolated_girl!


Liebster Award

Shortly after this nomination for the Liebster Award, Isolated_girl was so kind to nominate my blog for that award again.

Thank you so much for that, my dear blogging friend!

The rules of the Liebster Award (slightly different from my previous Liebster Award nomination) are:

Liebster Award rules

Isolated_girl’s 11 questions, and my answers to them, are:

1. Who are you and where do you belong to?

I am a blogger since 2005, and belong on WordPress since 2011, when previous blogging sites closed down.

2. Who is your idol and why?

I am not into idol worship. However, I really admire Honduran environmentalist and human rights activist Berta Cรกceres, murdered recently.

3. Which is your favorite book and why?

The price of my soul, by Bernadette Devlin. Because it is about standing up to injustice.

4. What is beauty? And what makes you beautiful?

Eg, these birds. Loving animals like these makes me beautiful.

5. Are you single, in a relationship or married? In a relationship.

[6. was omitted in the original, so I am asking this question to myself: Why do you blog?]

See here.

7. What is the best thing about you? And the worst one?

Best is my love for wildlife. Worst is (sometimes) laziness.

8. What do you write and why?

I write on various subjects on my blog. If there is no news on one subject, there will always be news on another subject.

9. Is your life difficult or is it easy?

Compared to many other people, it is easy.

10. Who or what is God?

Millions of people have tried to answer that question for thousands of years in their different ways. So far, there is no answer which convinces everybody else.

11. Whom do you love, the most in the world?

That person knows whom I mean ๐Ÿ™‚
