Sisterhood of the world bloggers award (part 2)

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-awardYesterday I told you how the wonderful K E Garland from Kwoted by KE Garland nominated me for the Sisterhood of World Bloggers Award.

Here are the five rules: (1) Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back to her site; (2) Put the award logo on your blog; (3) Answer the ten questions sent to you; (4) Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer; and (5) Nominate ten blogs. In my previous post I answered prompts 1 to 3, today I’ll be tackling the last two.

My 10 questions

I’m going to cheat on this one, as I had such a great time with Kwoted’s questions! I copied most of hers and added a few of my own:

  1. Do you have a partner and if so, how does this person complement you? If you don’t, describe your dream partner with whom you would happily live ever after.
  2. Do you have children, and if so, how have you managed to balance motherhood and other life activities?
  3. What part/characteristic of you are you most proud of?
  4. What was the last thing that made you laugh until you cried?
  5. What genre do you prefer to read?
  6. In what genre do you generally write?
  7. What is your writing process?
  8. Do you have any other passions than writing?

My 10 invitations for The Sisterhood of World Bloggers

1. The Heinous Housewife

I found this blog by The Inked Duchess via the Blogging101 tag, the WordPress blogging course I illegally are participating in. I love her sarcastic writing style on motherhood and the illustrations she makes herself (grunts with jealousy). I

2. Ariana Richardson

I found Ariana through the Photo101 tag and I added her to this list because advocating a woman’s point of view means supporting female photographers too. Her submissions to the Photo 101 tag are spectacular.

3. Red Hot Chili Mother

I’m a sucker for bloggers who will not fit in the picture perfect mom blog thing and Jess from Red Hot Chili Mother is one of them. Besides her fun style of writing, she makes her own illustrations for her post. Yes, that’s right. I’m green with envy.

4. Beyond Beirut

TK from Beyond Beirut is a Lebanese bride to be, but not your average one. This bride is keeping it real and I like it! What I especially love about her posts are her few flashbacks to her time as a grad student in Maastricht and see my country through her eyes.

5. Crazy grad mama

Going through grad school AND raising a kid? Crazy grad mama chose her name well, but it might also be Wise Grad Mama because of her intelligent insights on modern day parenting.

6. Fashion and Frappes

Lucy Danvers calls herself a fashion blogger, but there is so much more to this smart girl and her blog. Just read her post on Caitlyn Jenner and you’ll know what I mean. Lucy proves smarty pants can be worn stylish too.

7. Iva Berenek

Too easily we seek out bloggers that are like-minded, while we can learn some much from those who aren’t. Iva writes from a Christian perspective that I as a agnost not always agree with, but I admire the way she does it: respectfully and well written.

8. Eleanor’s ramblings

Eleanor is a seasoned non-fictionwriter who is trying to grow as a creative writer. As a former teacher, her blog is about (her) learning to write. I’ve learned so much from her feedback during Writing 101 and her compliments gave the confidence to keep blogging in English.

9. Only 100 Words

Sonya is a super talented writer who can use 100 words to tell you a full story. Every day. It’s so insanely creative, I just can’t get my head around it.

10. Lucille de Godoy

Lucille seasons my reader with her photos, especially those of Amsterdam and the rest of my country. I love seeing my country through her eyes.

Will you be a Sister?

Dear nominees, please don’t feel any pressure to take and pass on this award, especially if you’ve been nominated before. This is a shout out from me to you, to thank you for the effort you put in your blogging and spice up my Reader.

And if I didn’t name you but you’d like to be part of the Sisterhood of World Bloggers too, consider this post an open invitation from me to you! Just ping back to this post so I can reblog your entry.

xoxo – Irene

  1. Thank you Irene for your lovely and kind words! I hope that in my few flashbacks, I am able to convey how much I love your home country and how grateful I am that it took me in for a year 🙂

    I’m super lucky to have you among the people reading and supporting Beyond Beirut!

  2. Thank you so much for this, your words mean a lot and I really appreciate them. Do you mind if I quote what you said here on my FB page? I was going to ask you for your name, and then I saw in the comments above that it’s Irene. I haven’t responded yet with a post, but I will – after the Blogging101 course I have read a few more blogs so I will have a pile to draw from. I’m not sure when I will write it, but just to say I haven’t forgotten and thank you so much for the nomination 🙂

  3. Thank you so much! 🙂

    I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply, but I’m still without broadband and my mobile connection is shaky at the best of times… I’ll get round to answering your questions eventually, though.
