I supposed to:
- Write a post including the award picture.
- Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring, and of course ENTERTAINING!
- Add these rules to the post.
- Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog.
- Finally answer the questions below.
This is my first time doing one of these so let’s give it a whirl.
Why did you start to blog?
I really wanted to be part of a community of people who loved anime. While I have the odd person or two who will discuss specific shows with me and can be talked into watching one or two anime series from time to time, I live in a small town so conversation about anime is difficult. I originally tried the Crunchyroll forums but kind of found you either didn’t get a response or were met with people who just wanted to tell you why they were so much smarter than you and why your opinion was wrong. One of the few people who did respond to a comment I made in a positive way also had a blog linked to his profile and I decided to give the blogging community a go. So glad I did.
What is your favourite book?
Way too many favourite books. Pretty much anything fantasy or old school science-fiction (Eddings, Pratchett, Harding, Asimov, Bishop, Anthony, etc). As I say in my about page, I’m a prolific consumer of stories and I’m not too fussy about the medium. Recently, my book preferences have started moving to crime, mystery and the occasional paranormal romance. Not for any specific reason but I just found a lot of new sci-fi to be fairly flat and fantasy has gone more to low fantasy (set in the real world with magical elements) rather than epic high fantasy stories. So while I still read sci-fi and fantasy I tend to do a lot of second hand book buying.
What do you dislike the most?
Ignorance. If you don’t know, ask. And listen to the response.
What is your favourite food item at the mall?
I have to modify the question. What is your favourite food item at the shopping centre food court? (Sorry, the Australian in me couldn’t help it.)
Then my answer is rubbish anyway. When I lived somewhere that had a food court, my favourite food was either sushi (if it was from a chain that actually made it fresh) or a juice (if I could get it freshly made).
What is your favorite pastime?
Other than immersing myself in stories?
Probably travelling. I really enjoy getting to see something different and take a million photos of it that I will probably never look at again.
Honestly, I don’t know who has already been nominated but I’m pretty sure most of the people I initially thought of have already posted this award. Sorry if I skipped you and you hadn’t been nominated yet.
And, yes I know that is only 5 nominations and it is supposed to be 12 but as I said, I just don’t know who has already been nominated.
