Special blogger award 1 & 2

I was nominated by Karley from Blogs about anything under the sun  for the Special blogger award. And while I was working on it I received the same nomination from  Suni from Fragrant flowers and recipes 

This is the first time I receive this award and I’m really very grateful to be nominated! Can I consider myself a Special blogger now? 🤪

Thank you very much both Karley and Suni! ☀️ 😉 Very appreciated!

If you don’t know Karley yet, go and find her and explore everything under the sun with her 😊She writes about life, work, school, love, travel, and the list is quite long 😊 you will definitely like it 😊

And if you don’t know Suni, I believe her blog name says it all Fragrant flowers and recipes! What are you waiting for? Go and find her now 😊


1.) Thank the blogger who nominated you.

2.) Answer the questions you are asked (if you’re comfortable doing so!)

3.) Create questions for the bloggers you’ve nominated.

4.) Nominate at least 3 bloggers for the Special Blogger Award.

5.) Comment on your nominees’ most recent blog post to let them know you’ve nominated them.

And last but not least: 

6.) Have fun! (I think this is the most important 😊) 

Karley’s questions:

  1. What dream are you working towards right now? – being financially free! I think this is saying it all! 
  2. What seems to be your biggest obstacle? – time. Sometimes I feel is against me as I’m not able to do everything that I want. I always try to use every single day in an efficient way but having a full time job for living, it remains me very little or some days not at all time to do what I like and what I want. 
  3. If things happened the way you wanted, how would life be different?  – oh would definitely be different. First of all, I would not be 12 hours per day closed in an office working just for living, secondly, I would have my cottage by the sea full of dogs and last but not least, I’ll also be able to travel all around the world. 
  4. Are you thankful of your weaknesses or you see them as a curse? – I believe weaknesses are part of ourself, are defining us the person who we are. It is important to accept us as we are. If we don’t, then we need to work hard and become the person we want to be. But always remember that nobody is perfect. 

Suni’s questions:

  1. What made you take the leap and start your blog? – I’ve noticed that nowadays we are too busy with our daily life and don’t have time for anything else, not even for a smile. So with my blog I’m trying to spread a little bit of sunshine and positivity in our daily life. 
  2. Are you aiming to progress your blog into a full time job or keep it as a hobby? – I would like to be able to make a living from it but not so sure how 🤔
  3. What are your favourite kind of blog post to read? – I don’t have favourites kind of posts, I read everything…cooking, inspirational, photography, emotional, hilarious, informative…everything
  4. What are your favourite kind of blog post to write? – mostly I write 3 kinds: motivational, cooking and travel
  5. Do you feel your blogging experience has impacted you positively? – definitely, as I’ve discovered a great community and I’ve meet a lot of people alike around the world, and this is wonderful
  6. Are the people in your life (outside of the blogging community) supportive of your blog? – except my husband which is very supportive, no one else from my life know about my blog 🤪
  7. What advice would you give to fellow bloggers who are just starting out? – follow your passions and be respectful in the blogosphere. Go and interact with your fellow bloggers and you will discover amazing friends.
  8. If you could go back to when you first began your blog what piece of advice would you give yourself? – it was not long time ago I have started, so I think if I would need to do it again I would do it in the same way 
  9. What is your top tip for growing a blog? – being respectful and interacting with fellow bloggers
  10. How many blog posts do you post a week? – as per now one post daily, so 7 posts weekly. Consistency is the key 🔑  😉
Me blogging 😊

For my questions I would like to keep Karley’s questions:

  1. What dream are you working towards right now?
  2. What seems to be your biggest obstacle?
  3. If things happened the way you wanted, how would life be different?
  4. Are you thankful of your weaknesses or you see them as a curse?

I will nominate for this Special Blogger Award:

Enjoy it my dear!

  2. Very proud of your sincere answers Ribana! I also like to get a bit time to interact with amazing people that will relax us! I wish you to continue your blog with splendidly With happiness! 👍 🌸 💙

    1. Thank you very much Suni for your kind words! I’m really grateful for your support 🤗🌸😉 Likewise! Happy blogging and enjoy 🌸🌸🤗🤗🤗💕💕

      1. Your support and conversation makes me move in ease! 👍
        Go upwards smoothly! 💕🌸
        Thank you for your lovely interaction Ribana! Wish you success in your journey! 💖

  3. How can someone so sweet exist? I really don’t know >-<
    But just a little something to say: remember that after the pain of your job, there will be bliss.

    Also, if you want it for a living, why don't you creative a separate domain in which there are advertisements that with each view or click generates money. Or you can start selling stuff that have your motivational quotes on em? I don't know, these are just suggestions. Make sure you're smiling!

    1. Thank you very much Nour for your kind words! I really appreciate them! Yes, I’m thinking to do something, to transform this hobby into something that can become a way of living. Thought to upgrade my WP plan so that I can have ads and generate some money but not sure is working…🧐 I’m also thinking to start my e-commerce experience…need a little bit of research and planning though 😅
      Thank you for your advices! Are always so welcomed! Are helping me choose from my so many and messy ideas 😂🤪
      I’m trying to always be positive and step by step trying to be closer to my dreams 😊🌸💕

  4. Thank you so much Ribana!! I promise I will participate. Not now, but I will. 🙂 I really wish everything will turn out good so you can make your goals or dreams come true. Being financially stable is challenging but it is definitely possible. You are very hardworking, I have no doubt you can do it. I really respect bloggers like you who can commit with the daily posts. I can’t even commit to weekly post 🙁 You take care always. 🙂

    1. Thank you very much AL for your kind words 🤗 no pressure, take your time 😊
      Yes, I know is very challenging but I don’t give up! I will keep pushing 😅😅
      Hard work is always paying off 🤪 just need to be patient 🤪🤪
      We always need to find our way, some are perfectly fine with 1 monthly post…I have started with daily ones until will work for me, later we would see 😊 I think important is always to enjoy what we do, otherwise will just become as a second job but not paid 😂😂😂
      Have a wonderful day 🤗🌸💕

      1. that’s the thing that I don’t want to feel, pressure of updating and pressure of reading other posts. I would love to enjoy it not to get pressured.

      2. I feel so guilty when I don’t read other blogs, that’s honesty. 🙁 Especially those people that regularly read my blogs even I don’t update more often.

      3. Yes, I know…same here…I think this is the sad part…that we would like to do more than we can 🤪 but I believe we need to not force ourselves…otherwise will become a duty…😓😅

      4. Well I definitely don’t manage to read them all and I’m sorry and I hope my followers will bear with me 🤪…I have a half an hour, 1 hour in the morning on my way to work, when I’m answering at the comments on my posts and then I go around and read the others as much as I can…Lunch time same for another half an hour and occasionally in the evening between house works 🤪…on Saturday and Sunday I’m trying to cook something for the blog and write my posts and schedule them for the week…🤪🤪 That’s why sometimes I’m so tired that for 1,2 days I’m out completely from the internet world 😂😊

      5. Wow you are very consistent, and that is the key consistency. I wish I can have that same discipline 🙂 Right now I am trying but it’s kinda hard cause I am trying to accomplish something with a certain timeframe. Just some errands. But you are indeed an inspiration. Thank you for your honesty 🙂

      6. Important is always to do only how much we can do and don’t stress ourselves 🙂 If you give yourself enough time you will manage to do it 🙂 Try to enjoy it also 🙂
        Have a wonderful week and thank you for your kind words! 🙂

    1. Thank you very much Anne for your kind words! I appreciate them a lot🤗💕 I’m glad I can bring some joy and positivity in your busy life 🌸🌺🤗💕
