Real Neat Blog Award, congratulations, 16 awardees!


Real neat blog award

Late in 2014, I made this Real Neat Blog Award. There are so many bloggers whose blogs deserve more attention. So, I wanted to try to do something about that.

It is the first award that I ever made. I did some computer graphics years ago, before I started blogging; but my computer drawing had become rusty. So, I made the award with this logo then.

It is good to see that this award, which later came back to me, since then has gone to many places of the blogosphere. And that some people have made new logos for it; like the one at the top of this blog post.

The rules of this award are:

  • 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.

My seven questions for my nominees are:

1. Who is your favourite visual artist?

2. Which is your favourite bird species?

3. Which is your favourite mammal species?

4. What is your favourite insect?

5. What is your favourite plant?

6. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

7. If you would be invited to make a space journey, then to which solar system planet would you like to go?

My nominees are:

1. Confessions of a travelling freak

2. Faith Muriithi

3. Stella

4. Esther’s Nook

5. Wildly Ever After

6. A Storynerd’s Life

7. The Epi Center

8. Open Soulz

9. Spoken In Riddles

10. yourselflove

11. The Art of Life

12. RECIPES HOMEMADE

13. Dreams in Young Flourish

Real Neat Blog Award, thank you Charlotte!

My dear blogging friend Charlotte of The Inspired Page blog has been so kind so nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Real Neat Blog Award.

Thank you so much for this generosity!

Late in 2014, I made this Real Neat Blog Award. There are so many bloggers whose blogs deserve more attention. So, I wanted to try to do something about that.

It is the first award that I ever made. I did some computer graphics years ago, before I started blogging; but my computer drawing had become rusty. So, I made the award with this logo then.

It is good to see that this award, now coming back to me, since then has gone to many places of the blogosphere. And that some people have made new logos for it; like the one at the top of this blog post.

The rules of this award are:

  • 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.

Charlotte’s seven questions, and my answers, are:

1. If you had 50000,000000 million dollars, would you keep it for yourself, or give every cent away?

I would keep only a small part for myself. I would spend nearly all of it to found an internet site/TV station/newspaper or maybe all of them: to give good information on science, animals, human rights, peace and more. To counter the war propaganda, global warming denialism, etc. of the governments, corporations and the corporate establishment media.

It is sad to see that people who have that kind of money, like Jeff Bezos of Amazon, use it to still get richer and richer, while treating their workers terribly.

2. If you had a superpower, would you stay safe and hide in your house? Or protect other people?

Protect other people. However, I never went to acting school. And superpowers basically only exist in films. So, I would not get a role in a film about superpowers.

3. Do you like taking pictures or writing stories?

Writing, though I like photos.

4. Sweet or Savory? Why?

Savory, as it is better for teeth.

5. Do you like Math or History? Why?

Probably history. As the tag History on my blog has more blog posts than my category Mathematics.

6. Do you like cats or dogs? Why?

I like birds most.

7. Would you rather have a good education or a good job?

Maybe a good job, as working usually lasts longer in a person´s life than education.

However, if the question is stopping a good education to get a good job, then I am not so sure. As good jobs may disappear because of austerity.

My seven questions to my nominees are:

1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

2. What is your favourite sport?

3. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2019?

4. What is your favourite quote?

5. What is/was your favourite class when still at school?

6. Anything you had wished to have learned earlier?

7. Which politician would you never vote for, supposing you could vote for him or her?

My nominees are:

1. When Women Inspire

2. To Universe with Love

3. The Silly-Savvy Salopian in Suffolk

4. Miss Marzipan

5. Forgotten magic

6. Best of the Midwest – Best places for hiking, adventure and photography (listed by county)

7. ARTURS BRIDAKS

8. Limitless Travelling with K

9. Blue Love Blog

10. Flavor Smasher

11. A Secret Worth Telling

12. Unfinished Business

13. Everyone from everywhere

14. Graffiti Lux Art & More

Lovely Blog Award, thanks unbolt.me!


Lovely Blog Award

Thanks to the kindness of unbolt.me blog, Dear Kitty. Some blog has been nominated for the Lovely Blog Award.

Thank you so much for this generosity!

It looks like the One Lovely Blog Award, which I received earlier, but still seems to be a bit different.

As for the rules of this award (feel free to disobey them if you don’t have time, have an award free blog, etc.):

Lovely Blog Award rules

Seven things about me are:

1. This morning, as I walked to the railway station, I heard a great spotted woodpecker drum, and a dunnock and a chaffinch sing.

2. I started blogging in 2005, on ModBlog. As ModBlog was bought by a big corporation which let it go down the drain, I changed to Blogsome. Since Blogsome went down the drain in December 2011, I am on WordPress.
