The Sunshine Blogger Award, is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers they find creative, talented and entertaining. Generally, it’s a great way of opening yourself to the community as well as to your readers, since you need to answer 11 questions from the blogger that nominated you. Moreover, you then write your own 11 creative questions and nominate up to 11 additional bloggers that need to do the same.
Thank you Jeanne, for nominating me, a little while ago! If you don’t know this fabulous lady already, you should pay her blog A Jeanne in the Kitchen. Jeanne posts recipes of her own and welcomes guest amateur chefs regularly to encourage people to have fun in the kitchen, and cook great homemade meals for the whole family!
First, Jeanne’s questions:
What is your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas, for the moments spent with our friends and family, sharing heart-warming meals, playing games and having fun together. I feel it’s the only holiday we really manage to put our daily worries aside for a couple of days.
Who would you want to have dinner with and why? It could be anyone, dead or alive, real of fictional.
Oh my… Can I get a banquet? That’s a tough one. Mads Mikkelsen, of course, and for obvious reasons… Amélie Nothomb, because she is my all time favorite writer, and I’d love to share thoughts with her. Jonas Bjerre, whom I’ve briefly met once. For his charm and his explosive creativity. Leonard Cohen, *sigh*. And Queen Margrethe II, because if anyone could open the doors of Denmark for good, it is her Majesty!
What do you do when not blogging?
I live my life. Which is a lot less exciting than it might seem 😛
Do you like animals?
A lot. All animals… Big, and small, pets and wild ones! I like pretty much all of them, wether they fly, walk, crawl or swim!!
Do you have any pets?
Of course I do, although I am not sure if I have Freja, or if she has me…
If you do have pets, are they just pets, or are they part of the family?
She’s the boss… I’d have to ask her! But I think she considers us as family.
If time travel was real, would you use it to travel in either the past or the future, or both?
I’m not really interested in knowing the Future if I can’t change a thing about it. But I’d keep the “Future” option open, to be able to come back, after visiting the Past!
Where is your favorite place to visit?
What is your favorite type of food?
I like a lot of things but I think that my favorite type of food is Indian cuisine, fo its use of spices.
What was your favorite subject to study in school?
I loved school altogether as a kid, but I always had a preference for learning languages. French (of course), English and then giving a try to German, sign language, Vietnamese (very briefly) and Danish.
Would you want to be famous?
I don’t seek fame, I think it probably brings more trouble than advantages in one’s life. But I’d love to see some of my words become somewhat famous before I die. I am aware that’s not likely to happen, but I love to dream about it…
My questions (all blog related, because I already post a question everyday though my ”Quickies”):
- How long have you been blogging?
- What’s the story behind your blog’s name or theme?
- Do your friends and family know about your blog?
- What do non blogging people around you think about you being a blogger?
- Have you ever met fellow bloggers, face to face? If so, how did that go?
- What would you miss the most, if you couldn’t blog anymore?
- How much time do you spend on your blog, weekly?
- Are there things you thought about trying on your blog, but you still hesitate? (different writing style, adding audio or video content…)
- Who’s a blogger you feel everybody should know?
- What’s a post you are especially proud of, and that any new reader should visit?
- What brought you to The Cove today? 🙂
So, that’s about it! I will be a bit rebellious here, and not nominate people in particular… Because so many of you would well deserve the award, and I can hardly choose only eleven names. And because more and more blogs are award-free too.
If you are reading this, I pass the award to you! If you should accept it, please make sure to link me into your post, so I’ll notice your reply!!
Thank you again, Jeanne!! *Big hugs* And a great Sunday to you all!
