Sunshine Blogger Award


I got nominated (two times) for Sunshine Blogger Award! Well the truth is my travel blog GOTRAVELGLOBAL got nominated but that blog is place for travels and I have made decision to keep it free from other things. So I will be receive this award here in my side blog. 🙂

I decided to do these two nominations in same post so you get to see me answering too many questions. I hope this will give you better picture of me as person. Enjoy!

What keeps you motivated?

Good music, interesting people I meet, new experiences waiting for me, writing stories… The list is endless.

Who are the people that inspires you to write? Who inspires you?

All the blogs I follow and read. And all the people reading my blog. It still amazes me that someone would like to read my texts. And of course the people in my past who thought I will never succeed in my life and dreams.

How will you achieve great results in writing your blog?

Well… Being myself? I haven’t really thought that too much. Right now I will just keep writing and hoping that someone wants to read.

What is favorite color?

Pink, black, green.

How old are you when you started writing?
