I’d love to say that recently I flew to the Greek island Crete to accept and pick up The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award from my fellow blogger, author Fia Essen… Well the fact was, one morning I turned on my PC and received this link from Fia. Welcome to the internet world! And I realized that I was among one of the seven nominees Fia had selected…
‘Thank you Fia. I’m thrilled to be nominated by you! Not only do I think you are a great writer; I admire your interesting life journey. It’s been an honour knowing you from this blogging world…’ As my acceptance speech could easily go on and on, you might want to check out Fia’s blog here and find out why I’m such a big fan of her and her blog!

Thank you so much for nominating me. Unfortunately I have to inform you that I decided not to accept any blogger award/nominations long time ago, but I really appreciate that you considered my blog and I enjoyed reading your answers to the questions:):)
No worries Mitzie, 🙂
I hardly accept any (bloggers) award myself; I totally understand!
Thank you for your feedback; it’s always nice to hear from you! !
I love your answers, Viv! I’d also love to visit the Amalfi Coast. Shall we make a pact? Us Blogging Sisters gotta meet up in Amalfi one day 🙂
As usual, you look stunning in the photo. Chic, fresh, original and 100% authentic! I’m envious of your effortless elegance 🙂
Hugs and kisses,
Meeting up in Amalfi Coast sounds like a great idea Fia! 😉
Thank you for your compliment about this photo; this was one of the reasons why it took me so long to get this post up. I wanted a picture with me holding the ‘award’; what surprised me was the award looked so real in the shot!!
As I run a ‘self styled fashion diary’ here; I thought I’d put together an ensemble for receiving this award from you! I’m glad that you like it!! 😀

Congratulations! Some great answers too. I’m a libran, so I understand your need for justice, and I am lucky to have a pomeranian-cross in my life, aren’t they loving creatures?
One of my favourite songs is; We Are Family, by Sister Sledge, so congratualions again.
Thank you Julie! Wow, it seems like we have more than one thing in common! 😀 Yes I do LOVE Pomeranian, they have such gentle nature and they are so loving.
So you’d choose ‘We Are Family’ as your sitcom theme song? It’s a happy song I love it!
You are so welcome, anyone who loves dogs as much as you do, must have a wonderful soul ❤
I enjoyed reading through the answers☺.And congratulations of having three novels published by the age of 25.A lot of people try and they can’t have even one.This means that you really put all your strength and passion into it.You truly are an inspiration☺ not only for youngers writters but also for other bloguers.
Thank you for your compliments Debbie. :-*
I guess that I was fortunate to have my publisher in Taiwan who believed in me. Although I don’t write for a living any more, I must admit that expressing myself with words is still giving me great pleasure!
As long as you keep doing what you love thats what is essential.Even without any reward at least you keep your pasion alive 👍
