Saturday I posted about the Liebster Award, and how I received two nominations. What I neglected to mention was a third nomination from Nour Lee for the Mystery Blogger Award.

Now, I am humbled and just all smiles for the nominations to all of these awards, because they help us all grow our readership and find more people interested in what we love the most. But the Mystery Blogger Award I think is a more special one because of its stipulations. According to the creator the Nominees are:

…amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

-Okoto Enigma

To know that someone out there thinks that my blog is worth that kind of praise is a little terrifying, because I have rapidly growing shoes to fill, and I’m slightly grossed out that I’ve put on growable shoes.

Either way this kind of thing is unbelievable, and it makes me want to push harder and work harder for readers like you. I can only hope that my posts will continue to bring something to you and I could never thank you all enough for what your engagements with my work have done for me.

The rules are not too different from all the other social recognition blogger “awards” (we need to call these something else, like tag battles or Squabbado’s…).

They are as follows:

  1. use the logo
  2. say the rules
  3. say thank you
  4. pat the back of the award creator
  5. tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  6. nominate people
  7. ask them questions
  8. answer some questions

Now this seems extensive, and the creator asks to nominate 10-20 people which is a little, well sketchy. If I’m going to nominate the “best blogs out there” I’m going to keep it low. The rest will follow in the next pages.

  1. Thanks for mentioning me! Very interesting facts. I believe you’ve to take the opinion of yourself, your loved ones, and complete strangers. You’d judge yourself based on what you think and feel, unlike your loved ones who’ll judge you based on how you treated them your whole time with them-inckuding the bad and good times ( would probably be a positive comment), and the strangers would judge you upon one action you’ve done towards them, which is unfair but honest due to the emotional indifference.
    Loved how you answered question one! Was Sol interesting? And why in the three laws of motions have you come to earth? Tsk tsk.

  2. Alexander (Alex??) you really really are so kind to me. In fact, this made me a little emotional and I had to read it and go away and think before I could respond. How and why you see my writing the way you do I do not know, your limitless support has such a HUGE effect on me, and keeps me believing I should click ‘publish’ on my poems. You are a star in this blogosphere and on my horizon. Sorry, but you can’t blame me for getting gushy when you are just so damn nice to me!!!!

    I have a new writing spot, and I’ll see if I can give these questions a go. Don’t know how to say thank you properly, but, thank you.

    1. Look at the comments of your posts and you’ll know that I’m not alone in my opinions of your work! And to think that I may be in some way pushing you to keep pushing yourself makes me so happy. You really are great, and I look forward to every new poem.

      Ooo New writing spots! And hey, it is my pleasure!

      Oh and I prefer Alexander, but a lot of my writing friends call me Bjørn!

Tell me what you think!
