How to become famous in this mad world without undressing: Mystery Blogger Award

The last comment I received made me smile as I realised I’m finally gonna be famous (because as we all know, that’s all I aimed for with this blog): Surprisingly, I’ve been nominated for the ‘Mystery Blogger Award’!

This award was initiated by Okoto Enigma, English Literature student and lifestyle blogger. The thought behind it is basically to support small and unknown blogs such as mine and to create a supportive and friendly community of bloggers. Further details about the award and its origin can be found here.

I am happy to be part of this process of being nominated and nominating others, as I think this is a great way to enhance a supportive handling with each other without any competition.

Okoto set a few rules for the nominees:

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog
  2. List the rules.
  3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well
  5. Tell your readers 3 things about yourself
  6. You have to nominate 10 – 20 people
  7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  8. Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)
  9. Share a link to your best post(s)

Thus, while following these, I’ll get started!

 

First, I want to thank my friend Sophie from philosophie-taxi for nominating me – you’re the best! With humour and charm, this clever girl writes about philosophical questions, paradoxes of society and personal experiences. Her blog makes you think in one moment and smile in the next, so you should definitely check it out!

Now, the 3 facts about myself. I kind of dislike making lists like this if I know someone will read them 😉 but I’ll give it a try…

  1. I’m convinced that dogs are the best souls on earth
  2. I tend to get lost in the past instead of focusing what’s ahead of me. And I think it has been my ‘New Year’s resolution’ since years to work on that…
  3. There are few things which can make me happier than good conversations and seeing the most different kinds of people sharing emotional moments on live concerts. In short: making the world grow together through little things.

 

Well if you think this was hard for me, take a look at the 5 questions Sophie asked me:

What kind of music makes you happy?

That really depends on the occasion… in general I’d say anything that makes me dance – be it indie rock, techno, dancehall or 90s trash.

What gives you hope?

The thought of Karma, smiling children, and people spreading love.

Who or what are you in your daydreams?

Myself, winning every argument I ever had by including recently gained knowledge.

If you were a season, which one would it be?

Spring, definitely!

What question do you ask yourself a lot?

What’s the purpose on earth of such a tiny being like me and how can I make myself more useful than harmful?

 

That done, as I don’t really believe in the sustainability of riots, I stick to the rules and provide links to my best blogposts, further advertising for myself. Here I talk about my impressions of a refugee neighbourhood in Ankara, while here I philosophize about music festivals as heterotopias – I think that kind of frames my content.

After talking so much about myself, I’m happy to nominate the following blogs:

  1. Wurzelgepurzel for not only being a great mother, cook, and runner, but also a great writer
  2. Trailrennerei for motivating people beyond their twenties to be active and to keep on going even if things get hard
  3. Schlafverlust for sharing his stories with us and demonstrating the potential of inspiration lying in daily life
  4. Politik – um die Ecke gedacht for his interesting analysis
  5. Überschaubare Relevanz for his entertaining writing style and his sarcasm
  6. Gedankengischt for leading us into another world with her poetry and letting us see the magic in the little things
  7. Der geistige Brandstifter for clearing up misunderstandings and prejudices about religion, and Islam in particular
  8. Per5pektivenwechsel for elegantly combining political analysis with philosophy
  9. Sofasophia for activating us all to think out of the box
  10. Gedacht | Geschrieben | Erlebt | Gesehen for sharing his personal stories and impressions with us

My five questions for you are…

1. What, or who, inspires you?

2. With which person – dead or alive – would you love to have dinner with?

3. What are you proud of?

4. Twitter-contest with Trump or Pelmeni with Putin?

5. If I was the new German chancellor, I would…?

 

P.S.: In case you’ve been wondering: This entry is in English as I don’t assume that Okoto can speak German. However, to understand any of my posts I guess she will have to make use of google translate – and will probably get really weird, not quite accurate translations…
