Sunshine Blogger Awards

So, apparently I've been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by my friends over at  Neverland Fanfiction (thanks Monique!). This means two things: one, I finally have to admit that I'm writing fanfiction ;) and two: I have to answer a few questions and tell you about the award. The award is a way for bloggers to network and connect their blogs with other blogs they participate in or follow. This is supposed to spread the word about their blogs.

To accept the Sunshine Award, I have to:
  1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger with a link to the website - see intro
  2. Share 11 random facts about myself 
  3. Answer 11 questions that were posed by the blogger who nominated me
  4. List other bloggers I believe deserve some recognition and a little blogging love! 
  5. Post 11 questions for the bloggers I nominate to answer.
Puh, ok, here we go...

11 random facts about myself:

1. I prefer English, even though technically, I'm German
2. I am NOT a morning person - no matter what time zone I'm in
3. Country music is one of my biggest weaknesses
4. I spend too much time surfing the internet - mostly watching TV shows
5. As you all know now, I write fanfiction
6. Actually, I write all kinds of things. Lately most of them seem to be long romance novels though
7. I travel to find myself
8. I'm still looking though
9. If home is where the heart is, that would explain why mine feels broken most of the time
10. Sometimes I tend to get over-philosophical...
11. ...which is probably why I will stop now and eat another piece of chocolate cake instead :)

11 Questions from Monique: 

1. How did you come across the blog that nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Awards?
I had an acute *boyband-pop* relapse and suddenly had to google all my old favorites - including Westlife, which is how I stumbled over the fanfic blog

2. For how long have you been blogging?
About a year and a half - started when I flew to Boston in 2012

3. Do you integrate your blogging into your social media accounts?
I sometimes put a link up on facebook, so yeah

4. What inspires you to write?
Everything. Songs, scenes from my favorite movies or TV shows, crazy ideas I have while traveling, things I see while traveling, or simply some weird or sweet interactions between friends

5. What's your favorite food?
Ha! Everything! No... well, yeah, actually... but probably Italian....

6. How much time do you spend on a computer on a daily base? 
Too much ;)

7. What's your favorite animal?

8. Where would you like to travel?
I'd love to go to Bali, or explore Scottland on horseback... or maybe Iceland! And South America of course - and yes I mean all of it! ;)

9. Skirt or trousers?

10. Twitter or Facebook
Don't have twitter, so...

11. What do you do to get people to read your blog?
Basically just post it on facebook and sometimes I tell other travelers about it in case they want to check it out.

Ok, now for the other bloggers, I nominate Zimtstreusel which is pretty much the only blog I'm following right now... Full of yummy reciepes and matching pictures :)

Here are my questions for you:
1. Where or how did you learn to bake and cook?
2. Where do you take your inspiration from?
3. What was your biggest cooking faux-pas?
4. Do you have a favorite recipe?
5. Did you ever think about doing this professionally?
6. How do you get people to read your blog?
7. Are you getting any feedback?
8. Where would you like to go? (And maybe visit a cooking class?)
9. What is your biggest weakness? 
10. How do you keep yourself motivated to blog? Do you give yourself a schedule?
11. When did you start with photography? 

Ok, I think this is it :) Happy travels everyone, and go check out my friend's blogs!
And don't judge the fanfiction.... ;)
