I know, I know. I’ve been terrible at responding to people who have taken the time to nominate for a blogging award. Well, today I aim to chance all that.
Last Sunday, I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Kelly over at Why We Play Games. I’ve been following Kelly’s blog for a while and if like me. you love blogs that focus on video games, this is a blog I highly recommend you have a look at!
As with all blog awards, this one has some rules I must obey. They are as follows:
- Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
- Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
- List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
And here are Kelly’s 11 questions:
What is the game that you play the most?
At the moment, it is Elder Scrolls Online. Being an MMO means that I’ve easily sunk a few hundred hours into the game and I’ve barely scratched the surface. In the past, it would easily have been the Pokémon games.
What is your favourite gaming memory?
I answered this one in my Video Game Challenge back in June. But for those that missed it, it was getting my Game Boy Color as a Christmas present.
What is your favourite gaming series?
This is a tough one! I have a soft spot for Assassin’s Creed, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect and Dragon Age. However, there is one series that I do keep coming back to and that is The Elder Scrolls series.
What is your favourite part about gaming?
The escapism. In a video game, I can be someone completely different and I can do things that would be impossible to do in real life.
What is your favourite genre of music?
I have quite a few similar genres that I enjoy- rock, metal, symphonic metal, as well as music from musicals. Recently, I’ve also been getting into some Japanese artists as well. Some of my favourite artists are Within Temptation, Queen, Dragonforce, as well as the soundtracks for Phantom of the Opera, Wicked and Bat Out of Hell. Also any Disney animated film soundtrack.
What is your favourite book or book series?
I’m a self confessed bookworm, so I have quiet a few favourite books/series, perhaps too many to list in one post! However, I am a fan of Brandon Sanderson, Michael J. Sullivan, George R. R. Martin, Neil Gaiman, Anthony Ryan and I also love the Harry Potter series, also recently I’ve been reading Japanese light novels such as Sword Art Online and Overlord.
What things do you do to relax?
Reading and gaming, with some anime watching.
What inspired you to start blogging?
My friend, Khinjarsi. She suggested that I give it a go and a few years later, here we are!
What is one of your favourite articles that you have written?
Its kind of hard just to pick one, if I don’t like something I’ve written it doesn’t get posted. But two of the articles I had the most fun writing were: Thero’s Top Five Tragic Couples in Video Games. and Thero’s Top Five Dog Companions in Video Games.
What is your favourite part about blogging?
The community. There is an incredible community here on WordPress, who want to support one another and see each other succeed. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone here, which helps me continue to blog.
What is one piece of advice you would give to other bloggers?
Write about what you want to write about. Don’t stress if not a lot of people are clicking on your post, instead have some fun and use this platform to voice your thoughts and opinions.
So there were Kelly’s questions answered and now I’m going to be a rebel and not nominate anyone, as Kelly pretty much chose the people I would have nominated. Once again, I want to say a huge thank you to Kelly for nominating me and I’ll talk to you guys soon!
