The Sunshine Blogger Award

As it happens in the WordPress universe every once in a while, there is a tag going around and I have been selected by Red Metal from Extra Life Reviews to take part in the fun. I used to let a lot of these tags go by without ever replying to them, not because I do not like or appreciate the whole game, but because I ended up telling myself I would write about them later only to completely forget my mental note until it was already too late. However, given it is fun to write about different topics every once in a while, and also as a way to make my appreciation for the mention be known, I have recently made a point to try to reply to all of them if possible. Therefore, let’s get to it. As usual, Red Metal has created some pretty thoughtful questions and I hope my answers do them justice.

Mystery Blogger Award

Thanks to Red Metal, who runs Extra Life Reviews, one of the finest blogs about games and movies you are going to find out there, I have been tagged with a Mystery Blogger Award. In the past, whenever I was given one of those, I bookmarked them while telling myself I would get to replying to them later. Of course, I would then forget all about it for quite a bit, usually remembering I had questions to answer when creating the post did not make much sense anymore due to the elapsed time. In a way, this one was not really different, since the tag happened about a month ago. But I will get to it anyway because answering these is fun. So, without further ado, here are the questions and answers.

The Real Neat Blog Award

Browsing through my blogging history, I came to notice that it had been a whopping five years – slightly more than that, actually – since I last replied to one of those tags that travel around the WordPress universe every once in a while. Don’t get me wrong, it is not that I never appreciated the recognition or anything of the sort: I love it and I am quite grateful for it. It is just that I always ended up putting those posts on a pile of future pieces that I needed to get to, but then so much time went by without me sitting down to write them that I felt publishing a reply kind of lost its point. However, I guess that it is never too late to overcome a somewhat bad habit, and for that reason I decided to – for the first time in forever – answer the questions proposed by a fellow blogger who was kind enough to give this humble space a nod.

Liebster Strikes (Not Once But Twice)

If you don’t know about the Liebster Award, it is a simple tag through which bloggers nominate other users whose work and writing they like. It is a way to spread the word about great blogs and show appreciation for the posts made by others. Getting the Liebster Award means I have to do three things: firstly, I must answer the queries posed by the ones that tagged me; secondly, I need to post eleven random facts about me; finally, I have to list other blogs worthy of the award and ask them a bunch of questions. Let’s get to it!
