The Creative Blogger Award!!


A great galloping thanks to Izzy-grabs-life for my second WordPress Award Nomination!! This is my second award, and it happens to also be a Creative Blogger Award!!! The first time round, I did not really adhere to the rules, (not my fault, they weren’t stated clearly) so this may possibly be a divine intervention offering me a shot at atonement for my ‘sins’.

The Creative Blogger Award

  1. Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs.
  2. Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you (very important).
  3. Share 5 facts about yourself to your readers.
  4. Pass these rules on to them

I would like to nominate you:

  1. Lilrants  http://lilrant.wordpress.com/ – She has the most creative interpretation of ‘stripper’ I’ve encountered. joking
  2. Pint Size Fiction – http://pintsizefiction.com/ – Bite-sized nuggets of creative fiction.
  3. MythRider – http://mythrider.wordpress.com/ – Creatively deceptive. She fooled me into thinking she was male because of her profile picture.
  4. Priceless Joy (PJ) – http://pricelessjoy.co/ – Forgive me, PJ’s blog is allegedly blog free, but PJ deserves a nomination nevertheless! Brilliantly creative Flash Fiction prompts.
  5. A Narcissist Writes Letters to Himself – http://notesfromanarcissist.wordpress.com/ – I particularly enjoyed how he described his girlfriend as a demonic talking skull that haunts him.
  6. Life in the Foothills – http://salmonfishingqueen.wordpress.com/ – I hope one day you can indulge with me the mystery behind your creative username: babso2you
  7. Still Life with Grad Student – http://stilllifewithgradstudent.wordpress.com/ – She has the most creative way of dissing about life that makes it so interesting to read.
  8. waltbox – http://waltbox.wordpress.com/ – Anyone who knows Dick Hercules will admit he’s the greatest (fictional?) character ever created.
  9. Morpethroad – http://summerstommy.com/ – I just realized your username is actually ‘Morpeth’ and ‘Road’. Anyway, he is a splendid writer. Read his story on the Passenger which is simply brilliant.
  10. Fiction Favorites – http://johnwhowell.com/ – Creative way of telling us (from experience?) what not to do when: It’s your birthday, You’re Sent to Shop, etc.
  11. Nortina Mariela – http://nortinamariela.wordpress.com/ – Her flash fiction and writings are always terrific to read.
  12. Odd Realizations – http://oddrealizations.wordpress.com/ – An expressive poet that tells captivating stories through her eyes.
  13. The Bibliophile Diaries – http://thebibliophilediaries.wordpress.com/ – Definitely deserves a read. My favorite in particular: Grunge Princess. No one could have described themselves in a more eloquent manner.
  14. The Chatter Blog – http://bikecolleenbrown.wordpress.com/ – Snippets of writing in micro-posts; short but sweet, and always with an inspiring message.
  15. Before I Became A Great Writer – http://bibliophilewannabe.wordpress.com/ – A talented poet who weaves creative stories into poems that are equally humorous and relevant.

Now, for 5 facts about me:

  1. I think I have a very vivid imagination which isn’t the best thing. Reason being, I often imagine myself in new experiences and adventures, but when I actually experience the real thing, it never meets my expectations. Certain examples include overseas trips, joining school clubs, love, and working. Quite an unfortunate double-edged sword here, I’m afraid.
  2. I am an only child. Now upon saying this, people are quick to jump to one of the two assumptions:  1)  I am terribly spoilt.   2)  I have overprotective parents.  Well, I think neither holds true. I never get what I ask for, nor am I denied a decent degree of freedom. However, I am constantly, persistently, consistently, perpetually lonely.
  3. Being constant-persistent-consistent-perpetual-ly lonely, with every new acquaintance I encounter, I approach with the intention of becoming close friends. Linking back to Fact #1, I am always disappointed. I have come to learn that I am a really weird misfit unique individual, which sadly means that I haven’t found anyone who can share my ideals with me.
  4. There is a title unceremoniously bestowed upon me which I abhor. That title is ‘flirt’. Linking back from #3, apparently being overly friendly with everyone you meet, especially girls, earns you some disgraceful monikers. As if being labelled isn’t enough, the rumors are spread and every female I approach is now wary of me. This is infuriating. How can they treat me like a sex offender when the only offence I ever committed is being too talkative?
  5. As of recent years, I began to accept the flaws of the human race, such as the judgmental aspects. I am now content with my narrow circle of friends, although actually deep down, not really. I treat people like dirt now, because apparently the opposite isn’t what they want. Consequently, I lost faith in humanity and I’m now a very pessimistic person.

Hmmmph.

PS: How do pingbacks work? Do the 15 (recently buffed up to 30) links I painstakingly included above count as pingbacks?  ( I included one to the blogger’s home page, and one to a post, in hopes of the pingbacks working.)

  2. Thank you Frederick for the nomination! I would like to help you with the links. When adding a link to a post, you have to be in “text” mode. This is located at the top right of where you are writing your post. Open the post you want to link to in another window and copy the URL by doing a right click and then copy. Go back to your post and click on the link button which is the third button under media. This opens up a dialog box. Where is says URL, right click and paste the other blogs URL, then click enter. This puts the link into your post. At the end of the embedded link you will see: “> Click in between the >< and add the name of the link you want to post to. This applies the title of what you want to post…

    Here is an example of an embedded link back to MFtS for this week…

    Mondays Finish the Story

    The Mondays Finish the Story at the end there is what will show on your post.

    I thank you again for the nomination, and hope that the information I gave you here helps! Be well… ^..^

    1. It appears that you have a setting that prevents me from seeing the link back to my blog. But at least in the comment I hope you can see what I wanted to show you. If it does not show, let me know and I will contact you by email.

      1. I recently re-done it, so I put another link that links to one of your posts. It’s sneakily hidden in the ‘ ‘ (space) before everyone’s url (http:// blah blah blah). I was hoping that would create the pingback effect.

  3. !!! Thank you soo much! This is my first time being a part of this and, in all honesty, I’m not yet that familiar with the process. Haha. Although I’d like to, I don’t believe I’ll be able to make a post about this anytime soon (Haha. Am I right in assuming that is what I’m supposed to do?) what with exams and everything :(. My apologies. Huhu. I don’t mean to come off as rude/unappreciative.

    But yes. Thank you once again and I’m glad you enjoy my poetry! 🙂

    Hope you have an amazing day! x

    1. Haha seeing your excitement has made my day! Take your time to respond to this post, if at all (you may decide to turn your blog award-free), at least until you have found 15-20 awardees to pass this award to. Your poetry is amazing. I especially love the way it tells stories, in a poetic manner. It’s something I could not achieve, even if I tried. Looking forward to more great poems from you! 😀

      1. Oooohhh. I guess I’ll just keep mine blog award-free for now, until I’m able to catch up on other blogger’s posts and whatnot. 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind wordsss! It means a lot.

        Can’t wait to see your future posts too. Hope you have an amazing day! x
