I completed 50 posts on Tuesday and the moment I published my 50th, I could see the top-right orange box blinking. To my utter surprise, I was notified that my blog has been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award by mystudentstruggles which is one of the most fascinating and lovely blogs that I follow. (Thank you so much for the honour). All right, so after being all joyful and glad, I was wondering, what exactly does ‘Liebster’ mean? Google Search told me that it is a German word which means ‘favourite’ and at WordPress, this award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I am sure most of you already know that (if you are a blogger) but since I am new to this whole WordPress scene, I was unaware of the award’s implication.


Okay, so I won’t irk you anymore (I promise) and will go ahead with the rules of this award.


  • Answer the questions that your nominator posed to her/his nominees
  • Pass the award on to five other bloggers
  • Ask five questions for one’s nominees to answer

(I have copied these rules as stated by mystudentstruggles in her blog and I apologize for any discrepancies)

So, let’s get started in sequence:


  1. What is your favourite book? Which character do you identify with most and why?

This one is a little tricky because I have too many favourites, but if I had to pick one, I would go with ‘The diary of a young girl’ by Anne Frank. I read that book about seven or eight years back but it has remained with me ever since. I consider myself a lot like Anne Frank herself and those days when I was reading the book, I could imagine each and every thing happening in my life and I could resonate with Anne’s feelings and outlook.

  1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

I would want to become more focussed towards my passion. I am pretty lethargic and that at times keeps me away from writing and even reading. So, I would want to boost my enthusiasm for things that really matter in life.

  1. Who is your hero/heroine?

If someone would have asked me this question around ten years back, my answer would have been ‘My Dad’.  To be honest, today I do not know things are the same or not because your ideas, beliefs and emotions tend to change as you grow up, but I still don’t want to take that reverence away from him. So either my hero is my dad or its no one.

  1. What would it take for you to make friends with an old enemy?

It would just take a genuine smile, some words of apology or pardon and an affirmative soul. I do not believe in making foes because there is no point enveloping negativity in your heart towards someone. Love and friendship are good enough to make life rock 😉

  1. What keeps you writing when that dreaded monster known as ‘writers block’ strikes?

I certainly dread this monster because it strikes me pretty often. It kept me away from writing for months or probably even a year in the past. However, I have noticed that the more I read, the more stimulated I get to write. Especially when I read something that touches my heart. Consequently, each time I truly want to write keeping the writers’ block aside; I read.


The following are some of the best blogs that I have been reading since I started with WordPress in August. They are all very inspiring and lovely bloggers. I am glad I found them 🙂


  1. Who is your favourite author and why?
  2. Share with us one childhood memory, happy or sad, which had an impact on you.
  3. If you had to choose one person on planet Earth with whom you share the closest relationship, who would it be?
  4. What can make you smile in times of distress?
  5. Which is the most amazing and influential movie you have ever seen?

I am looking forward to reading the answers to these questions from the people I nominated.Right now I gotta go and congratulate them. I guess they would be delighted 🙂

Signing off for now, with a lot of better stuff coming up soon. Keep Reading!

  1. Congratulations on your award and thanks very much for the nomination. I’m a bit snowed under with reading and writing this year so I’m afraid I won’t be able to do a post, but I’m really honoured to have been chosen by you. 🙂
