Greetings fellow bloggers, I thank the blogger of Words, Coffee & Lace Dresses for being kind and wonderful for nominating me as one of her nominees for the Permio Dardos Awards. And now here are my 15 nominees:-
- Words, Coffee & Lace Dresses
I love the idea that blogging has created a platform for young bloggers and encourage them to read, writing posts and giving genuine feedback to their fellow bloggers in the blogosphere. To promote friendship and at the same time boosting confidence of fellow bloggers to continue their passion for blogging. Thank you my dear for showing me that this Award is a token of friendship and spreading the positives of blogging.
2. Shine On by fiftyshadesofprei
I love the way her blogging takes me to moments of flashback, like for example just a few weeks ago she posted on some of her favourite sound tracks and the moment I read her blog title, It brought me to a wave of flashbacks of when I used to carry a Walk Men in the back pocket of my jeans and bringing different cassettes in my back pack. Back then in the 90’s I was into The Spice Girls (Posh Spice was my fav),Backstreet Boys and NSync. huhu. Aww, those were the good times of music.
Adnan has a very interesting blog. His posts titles are very eye-catching and his content is very fascinating. He is able to breakdown complex theories into easily digestible information that can be absorbed by individual. And just the other day I learned the importance of feedback and giving genuine feedback can help an individual to grow.
4. Nancy Wong
Fashion Bloggers are slowly making way to the blogosphere. Yes, the Fashion Industry is a booming industry that is slowly evolving in Asia. I find Nancy Wong’s blog very refreshing and it’s very inspiring to see how fashion can be fun yet simple and elegant. It would be amazing to have fashion tips and tricks from her on how to work with accessories.
5. Peave, Love Family
Breastfeeding is part of Human Nature and part of Womenhood. It’s the transition from Womenhood to Motherhood. And I cherish the moments when I was able to breastfeed. Her blog :One Year of Breastfeeding Bliss inspired me and remind me that at times when I did not have mutual support to breastfeed (be it at the workplace or even in the comfort of your own home) That there are mothers who turn to the Internet to find and learn on ways of breastfeeding and the challenges that every mother faces on a day to day basis. Mixture of fear and stress are overcome when you have courage, love, patience and planting the seed of trust within yourself and believe that you can make it through that 2 year mark to exclusive breastfeeding.
6. Surviving The Spectra
At times, living in an era where we are bound to face difficult decisions and challenges everyday in our lives are bound to crack open anyone’s can of patience. The stress and pressure can get to you sometimes. And his blog inspires me because it takes guts to spread awareness on mental health & depression. And it is ok to tell someone that you need help because you feel that is NOT ok to feel depressed. I have experience 2 events in my life where family members have tried to commit suicide because of the things that are happening to them (one was because of Cyber-Bullying and Spreading Rumors online and the other was due to Postnatal Depression) no matter the issue, you will get through it.
7. The Positive Project
Inspiring to share posts that spread the awareness of positivity on his post on How to Beat Stress and Boost Happiness and there is an app on how to get your happiness cell recharged when they are times you are feeling down.
8. Vantage Points
The blog post entitled: Embrace Your Voice. Very true.There are many times where we find ourselves liking other blogger’s theme, layouts, widgets and fonts and might have thoughts on changing the look and feel of our blog too. Blogs are like the reflection of your personality in the Blogosphere. Its your uniform and brand that represents you. It’s just like picking an outfit. You may have the different taste in colours and different fashion sense. Stay true to yourself and pick the themes that best suit your personality.
9. Photography by Alexx
His posts on Travel and Photography is very inspiring. The moment I view his pictures I am able to imagine the surrounds. It’s like being able to transport yourself through his pictures. I enjoy the idea of travelling and always wanted to travel myself. And his blogs shares wonderful places to visit.
10. Yummy Inside My Tummy
In her post Dim Sum, Want Some, what I love apart from Fashion Bloggers is Food Bloggers. You can learn about a person thorough their choices of cooking and food. You can tell about someone’s personality and culture through a variety of different dishes. I always enjoyed visiting her posts.
11. When Coffee Meets Rain
There is nothing like having a cup of tea to unwind. Crazy as it may sounds. But the moment I read her post on Grand Wedding and Meaningful Words. It transported me to the time where I spent my days going to coffee shops to sit down, unwind and finding inspiration to start blogging.The strangest thing is I spent my days in a coffee shop but ordering a Matcha Tea or a ice-blended chocolate to help me get the creative juices flowing. Only recently this year I turned to coffee (the mineral coffee kind) to help me get through those long nights of typing.
12. The Life of A 40 Something
In her post: Naming The Cat. I was hooked on reading the part that says that it’s always very hard to naming our cats. And from experience, we had 3-4 cats that we held closely to heart. But they have already passed on. But I find myself naming them very hard. And always gave the same name as our first cat ‘Sammy’. Perhaps the sentimental value of having the name ‘Sammy’. It was like never ever forgetting your first love.
13. Thoughts of a trained wrecked pineapple:
In the post of I Love and Hate You: The Burden of Money it reminds me of those days when money used to burn a whole in my pocket.Only in when I first started my online business did I fully understand the importance of managing cash flow.
14. Science of Mom
In her post of The things she carried and barely used, reminds me of those days when I had to packed for a long journey and being able to see and visit your family and close friends was worth-while.
15. Blog of Bobby
I always had a fascination with the ocean (and Mermaids too :p) but I was always afraid of the water, thanks to near experiences of drowning. His blog is super informative on how to swim makes me wanna join his swimming
