The Liebster Award

My first award nomination!

I am really grateful to Dulcy Singh ( for nominating me! Check out her blog, she has great content! I am a huge fan of her stories.

I started this blog a month ago and this is my first award nomination! I am genuinely so excited, grateful and honored.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you amazing bloggers who have taken the time to read my content and for your support throughout. I am very new to blogging and nothing is more encouraging than your reinforcement.


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions
  5. Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post

Here are the answers to the questions I was asked:

  1. Do you like stories? I read my first novel at the age of 8, since then, stories and books have been my accomplices!
  2. Which Country do you belong to? As a child, I have relocated a lot due to my parents’ jobs so I like to think of myself as belonging to all those countries. But, my nationality is Indian.
  3. When is your birthday? 28 April
  4. Suggest a story theme. Newton’s third law of motion as a law of the universe or the Butterfly Effect!
  5. What inspired you to write blogs? I have been writing for quite some time but I was never one to share it with others. During the lockdown imposed in my nation during the pandemic, I started it as a way to express my thoughts and ideas and connect with people around even when I was isolated.
  6. If you had a wish what would it be? An opportunity to travel the world and witness all the cultures globally!
  7. Describe yourself. A radiant spirit with a thirst for adventure and an urge to travel!
  8. What is your favourite place that you want to visit again? Italy. The ancient Romans built one of the greatest empires in world history. Although, I have been there once, I hope to visit it again someday. The people and the culture is to die for!
  9. One weakness you want to overcome. I am either overly emotional or detached and aloof. I would like to find a balance between the two.
  10. What were your learnings from the pandemic? I can thrive with simply my company. I was never good at being alone, but I grew to enjoy it! I also learned how to bake. (PS. I baked a marble cake today!)
  11. Your favourite song/quote? Quote: “If you don’t like the hand fate has dealt you with, you fight for a new one.” Song: Fix you by Coldplay.

I nominate:

My questions for the nominees:

  • What is your favourite book?
  • Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
  • What did you want to be as a child and what did you end up becoming/want to be now?
  • Do you believe in fate and the Universe?
  • What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
  • What drives you to push through everyday?

Congratulations on your award nomination, Rishika! Thank for nominating me for this award. I sincerely appreciate the nomination, but at this stage of my life, I have no desire to compete. I just want to write poems and exchange ideas with creative people.

All the best. Cheryl

Hi Prerna, thank you so very much! I’ve been wanting to write a story along that theme for some time now but haven’t been able to! So I thought of passing it along, haha. I started off with a burnt chocolate cake πŸ˜‚ at least yours is edible!
