The Mystery Blogger Award


Hi Everyone! I’m back again with an award post because they are fun to do! I’m happy to announce to you that Lu @ Girl Who Reads nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award! Please take some time to check out her blog. She has many fun posts to read: buddy read book reviews, tags, NaBloPoMo Prompt posts, etc. Thank you Lu for the award nomination! This award was created by Okoto Enigma and below is her explanation for the award. Thank you for creating this award to recognize our fellow bloggers!

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

1) I Hoard more books than I can read.
2) I get a hair cut once a year.
3) I feel irritated by those people who followed me, then I followed back, then turns around and unfollowed me. (Twitter & Instagram).

1.What made you the happiest you’ve ever been this year?
I love it that many fellow bloggers are tagging me to many tags and nominating me to many awards. Thank you for thinking of me! I know I’m behind on doing many of them but it’s better late than never!

2.If you could do one more great thing, and one only, what would you do?
I need to read those books that the writers took the time out of their busy schedule to email me to request me to read their books. I have 6 and I haven’t started on any of them because I already have scheduled buddy reads until Dec 16th! Who else is fighting for time like me? hehe..

3.What are two of your life goals?
To finish university and obtain a professional career that allows me to have my own office in a tall building. I have since obtained both of those goals, just that I have always ended up sitting on the first floor even though at one time, I worked in a building with 20 floors and we sometimes have meetings on the 18th floor!

4.Do you consider yourself a clumsy person?
No. I’m in the middle I think.

5.Weird: What was your most recent dream about?
I dreamed that I was in a car accident. This year I have been in two car accidents before this dream. They were minor ones. I didn’t get hurt, but I felt scared.

    Oh how funny you mentioned that you hate when people follow then unfollow You – this happened to me for the FIRST time in ten years! I guess I am not doing what they want or like for their reasons. I figured what I blog about it non of their business then and good riddens! Bless you for sharing the award and telling us what you like – this is such a fun way to expression and getting to know our fellow bloggers. I am Jackie and hope to see much more of your posts in 2017! Happy New Year

      Thank you Jackie for finding my blog. People follow & unfollow because they only want to collect followers. I see some accounts show followers like 14k and follow zero. That person is not interesting at all. So you wonder how they can have that many followers. Some people may not bother to unfollow him/her but I will 😊

    Thanks for the nomination!! It does feel great to be nominated for so many awards and tags, right? They are a ton of fun– but I find they often mean I am spending more time on tags than reviews. Oops!

    These are great questions. I can’t wait to reply. Eventually. 😉

    P.S. No more car accident dreams!

    Oh I love tags and nominations too!! They are such great blog de-stressors (from all the reviews)

    Yikes!! 18 floors is a lot of daily travelling! But just managing to get a job with your own office in a high-rise building sounds so awesome!!!

    It’s awesome that you’ve met your goals! 😀
    But I get really frustrated by those people who unfollow easily – you can just tell they’re in it for the followers and not to make more meaningful connections/because they like your content, etc.
    Great answers – it was awesome to learn more about you 🙂

    OmG, I HATE those kind of ppl on twitter (I don’t have Instagram) that follow you just so you’d follow them back, and then they unfollow you as soon as you hit follow button.
    And then if you unfollow them, they hit follow button again.
    I mean, don’t contact me, I don’t need you in my life!
    And some authors (upcoming as I noticed) do that to, and if you do it, I won’t even read your book, I can promise you that!
    I won’t trash it, I will just ignore you and your work.
    But I learned how to recognize those kind of followers, you can see then have few thousends followers and follow sth like 400 ppl, and especially if they are life style, beauty or travel bloggers.

      My account may look that way with low total following but most of them were junk and they followed me when I was not using it last year. I agree with everything you are saying and yes, don’t bother to read their book. I like that Twitter shows if they follow you back. Instagram doesn’t indicate so it’s hard to tell. Some people even have 20k of followers and they still follow & unfollowed. How irritating!

    Thank you so much for the tag 😊💕!! I know what you mean about being behind on review books. I have two where both authors said to review whenever I could but I still feel bad that I’ve had them for months and haven’t been able to get to them. Also, it bothers me when I follow people back only for them to unfollow me too. So annoying. 😣

    Congratulations on the award and thank you so much for nominating me!! I hoard too many books, too. I REALLY need to find the time to read them all, especially the ones authors have requested me to read. And I definitely support those 2 life goals 😀 I’d LOVE to have a career that gives me my own office/space and I’ve got one more semester of university before I’m FREEEEEEEE! Thanks again for the tag ❤

    I also get mad at people that follow & unfollow me constantly … It’s so annoying!!
    I hope you manage to read those 6 books asap 😛 I need to organize my readings too! I haven’t read much so far this month, but I hope December is better. 🙂

    Thank you so much for nominating me ❤

    Thanks so much for the nomination! This award looks so fun, and I look forward to doing it!❤️

    I also get quite annoyed when people follow me and then unfollow me just after I follow them back, they seem to just do that to get followers, which is SOOOOO annoying! I also LOVED Girl Online, and the third book just came out, so I’m really excited to get my hands on it😊

    Congratulations Jasmine! 🙂 Oh my God, I so can relate to time issues… I simply can’t seem to do anything these days. I try to come up with a schedule and follow it, but at the end of the day I’m about 50% done, if I’m lucky.
    Keep up the great work ^^

    Thanks for the tag, Jasmine, love the post, I agree about the follow and unfollow on one I had that on my instagram page, it was most annoying then a month later they were following me again, how weird is that 🙂

    I totally agree with your three facts. I hate when people follow and then unfollow. It’s like they’re playing a game. Follow me or not, right? That’s so frustrating. I also wait about a year to get my hair cut. I don’t enjoy going to the hairdresser at all. 😂 And I’m a major book hoarder. 🙂

      Sorry that you have been in spam jail! Thank you Jazz. My next goal would be something for this blog. To keep followers wanting to come back 🙂 How about you? Have you meet any of your goals this year?
