Sunshine Blogger Award, thank you Yaasotaa!


Sunshine Blogger Award

My dear blogging friend Yaasotaa has been so kind to nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Sunshine Blogger Award.

Thank you so much for this kind gesture!

The rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award are:

Thank and mention the blogger who has nominated you by linking to their blog.
Insert the logo of the Sunshine Blogger Award in the post.
Answer the eleven questions that are posed to you.
Nominate eleven bloggers [and link to their blogs].
Formulate eleven questions to be answered.
Indicate the rules of the nominations.

Yaasotaa’s (seven) questions, and my answers, are:

1. What is your aim in your life?

To get more peace and less injustice in the world. See here.

2. Why do you love blogging?

For many reasons, eg, it prevents me from forgetting important things in my surroundings, or in cyberspace.

3. Do you have any winning blog post? Tell me your experiences of your family and you. Where you post it (WordPress/in other ways) EXPLAIN?

I never had an individual blog post winning an award. However, my blog as a whole was nominated for quite some awards. See here.

4. Do you have faith at god?

As for religions, I will limit myself to a quote on one of them, Christianity.

I disagree with most ideas of German philosopher Nietzsche. Yet, he sometimes wrote interesting aphorisms. Like:

‘I would really like to be a Christian and released; however, if only the Christians would look more like released people …’ (while too many Christians look like this).

5. How will you get rid of your Ego?

Realizing how big the world of plants, animals, etc. on earth is; and how much bigger still the solar system beyond Earth is; and how still bigger space beyond it is.

6. What is the most unique thing in your life?

I have seen orcas swimming near the Antarctic peninsula.

7. Does your country have any WordPress Anniversary? Do you have take part? Or do you have been called to the celebration?explain

As far as I know, no WordPress Anniversary here.
