My Second Blogger Award of the year
Essentially, I would love to give the most thankful message that I could to the blogger who nominated me to received this Blogger Award. My second this year as a novice blogger (so true).
I still have “loads of rice to eat” as my grandmother always tells me when I was a petite child back then (well, still petite til now)
The Blogger Award that I’m talking about is “Liebster Award”, this award exists to be given to bloggers by other bloggers. I have found that the word “Liebster” is a German word which has several definitions: like dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, welcome, sweetheart and boyfriend.
Thanks to JoeTravelBlogs!
Joe the author of JoeTravelBlogs, A young cheerful English guy who loves to travel around the world.
On my way around the world I love bumping into new people, experiencing, becoming immersed in new cultures and trying to get some good photos! All my travels have been different in their own way.
Some I have traveled with my family and friends, then others I have traveled alone and met people on the way. I feel that both are completely different and can’t really be compared.
So I always say to people you should try to experience both, if you can!
You were wondering who is he in the photo? Yes, the one in the middle. I would like to thank you, Joe, for nominating me. Personally, this is just crazy cause I was commencing my Blogtober Challenge (31 days of blog posting) and on the first blog post I’ve published you commented on it saying that you picked me for this blogger award.
Even this isn’t that prestigious that others might think, I’m still super thankful for receiving it.
Following the Liebster Award Rule, I must answer Joe’s forwarded queries about me. So here it is I hope to answer the best way that I can.
Most proud of in your life
There are so much that I’m proud of in my life, but for this moment I could say I’m very proud of my LexieAnimeTravel Blog for its wonderful and smooth adventure in the blogging world.
I found myself unchained from dependent to an independent self-hosted blogger, it’s a full satisfaction. No doubt on that!
Favourite city you have been to
I would say, for all the cities I’ve been too, I will always love them. But there’s only one City that would always mark its footprints in my sands ocean.
Absolutely! Have you guessed it? Zamboanga City will always be my greatest favorite.
And for the rest of Joe’s questions, TV show guilty pleasure? Favourite form of social media? other languages you speak? I’ll answer it simply:
I’m not a fan of TV shows, but I love to watch tons of Manga Animé Series. Favorite social media? I guess everything except Flipboard I’m not a super fan yet. For the last one, I’ll just give you a hint. It’s in my next photo.
