The Sunshine Blogger Award | The Japantry

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Alex’s questions:

  • A readathon that you take part in?
    Uh, I don’t take part in readathons because of school and stuff.
  • What inspires you to blog?
    My reader, firstly. Secondly, the fact that my blog is sole solace at some points of time.
  • What one of your posts needs more views and likes?
    Well, on a serious note, my post Rape- A Heinous Crime needs more views if not likes.
  • One thing that you started doing during the lockdown and are still doing?
    Blogging 🙂
  • What’s that quote you always keep in mind?

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

-Albus Dumbledore
  • Your current favourite snack?
    Popcorn I suppose.
  • What’s your favourite family recipe?
    There is this really healthy wheat-jaggery cake which I simply love!
  • Would you choose money or love?
    I honestly don’t know. Money, maybe- because even though we say it doesn’t buy you happiness, at a point of time it does.
  • Pick a food to eat forever?
    There is this Indian chaat called Pani Puri- I choose that!
  • A book or show you read/watch over and over?
    Well, I have read Harry Potter over seven times, so I guess I will go with that.
  • Do you have any blogging tips?
    Okay, let me make this clear- I am no expert at blogging. But a couple of things that I have learnt while blogging are that
    1. Reach out to other bloggers- let them know you exist.
    2. Diversify your blog content. If you are a book blogger, don’t just post book reviews- do tags, weekly memes, discussions etc. There is so much more to the world of book blogging than just reviews.

My Questions:

  1. What is the one thing you like about my blog? What is the one thing you don’t? (Sorry, I just really want feedback from my readers)
  2. Where do you see yourself five years from now?
  3. What do you think will be your next 5-star read?
  4. One piece of advice you wish you had when you started blogging?
  5. How do you treat a reading slump?
  6. Do you aspire to write a book someday?
  7. One person who inspires you?
  8. What book or book series were you not expecting to love/hate?
  9. What is one thing that you love about the book blogging community? 
  10. What are your top 3 favorite fictional cities/kingdoms/regions?
  11. A GIF that describes your current read?

I nominate:

  1. Lilly @Lilly’s Little Library
  2. Poorwa @Poorwa’s blog
  3. Aleks @Aleks and the Books
  4. Pavithra @Small Talks (Hi, if you are reading this, congrats on a hundred followers!)
  5. Fleur @Fleur is Reading Again
  6. YOU!

The Outstanding Blogger Award

I was nominated for this award by the lovely Pavithra over at Small Talks. Do give her blog a visit to get access to a lot of positivity!

This award was created by Colton Beckwith and this is the original post.

Rules:

  1. Provide the link to the creator’s original award post. (very important: see why in step 5)
  2. Answer the questions provided.
  3. Create 7 unique questions.
  4. Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator, nor the blogger that nominated you, can be nominated.
  5. At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award!

Pavithra’s Questions:

  • If you meet the ‘Lamp Genie’ what would be your 3 wishes?
    1. I wish to have a library wherein I can get access to any book I want at any time in paperback free of cost.
    2. I wish to be successful in life
    3. I wish to eat whatever I want whenever I want without gaining weight.
  • What’s one thing that always makes you feel confident?
    My ability to read.
  • What is the most stupid thing you believed as a kid?
    Don’t laugh at me- Ayodhya is fictional
  • What is your favorite hobby and why?
    In case my blog doesn’t make it clear already- it is reading. I am also beginning to start to love blogging because it provides an escape from the tyranny of this world
  • Which social media you use the most?
    Uh… WordPress😂 I am also active on my email, although you need to drop a comment that you have emailed to me as otherwise I might miss it. I am also active on Goodreads. I have an Instagram account but reach me out there only when I haven’t responded any place else as I don’t really use it much.
  • Your latest obsession
    This really cool song called Liability by Lorde.
  • Biggest fan of what?
    PETER KAVINSKY!!!!!!!!!

My Questions:

1. What is the one thing you will never do?
2. One book you will protect with your life?
3. The most tragic moment of your life? (If you do not mind sharing)
4. The one food that you will eat, even on a full stomach?
5. One book that you can reread forever and not get bored?
6. Which post that you have written is your favourite? Share the link as well.
7. What is the one thing you like about my blog? What is the one thing you don’t? (Don’t say nothing, we are past that)

Since I have officially run out of people to tag for all these awards I am receiving these days- I am going to nominate YOU!
