The Real Neat Blog Award

Woohoo! I’ve been nominated for the ‘The Real Neat Blog Award‘ …

A massive thank you to The Jouska Blog for nominating me … If you haven’t already heard about her amazing blog, then you must visit as it is full of handy tips, great reviews and deeeelicious recipes!

Coming back to the award, the rules are simple:

  • Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions asked.
  • Nominate 7 more bloggers for the award.
  • Create seven question for your Nominees.

Ready? Lets get rolling ….


What’s the story behind your blog name?
It took me almost forever to come up with the name and I drove my family bonkers in the process … Either the good names were taken or were not catchy enough … I didn’t even know what topics I would write about, but what I did know was it would be far from serious and a lighthearted spin on everything … Thus came into being ‘Strictly Lighthearted’ ..

Do you plan your posts before writing them or are you more spontaneous?
Absolutely spontaneous! I’d be having a conversation with someone and I’d suddenly think ‘Oooo, gotta blog about this!’ .. In fact many of my friends think I have become a bit scary as whenever we have a disagreement, out comes my tag line ‘Oooo, gotta blog about this!’ .. Haha …

Is there any book that you could read over and over again without getting bored?
‘P.S I Love You!’ And yup, I cry each time I read it as well … It was simply beautiful!

Who’s your favorite Talk Show host?
Ellen Degeneres! I can never get over how many gifts she gives away during the Christmas season … The audience’s reaction is priceless!

Would you rather read the book first and then watch the movie or vice versa?
Read the book and never watch the movie! Because for me, that just ruins the beautiful images I’ve formed of the characters and the story after reading the book …. It’s just never the same!

Have you ever gotten the opportunity to meet your idol? (It can be anybody, a celebrity, author, singer, and so on.)
I’d say I have … They seem so ordinary in real life though .. Just normal humans like the rest of us! 🙂 … I might change my mind if I meet Bradley Cooper though … *grin* …

How many languages can you speak?
I’d say I’m fluent in English but can get away with saying ‘hello’ and ‘goodbye’ in quite a few languages .. Does that count? Lol …

The list of amazing bloggers I have come across is endless … Luckily I have a few more Awards & Tags left to answer so will be able to give everyone a chance … My choices for this Award in particular are ….

Saturday on Wednesday
Okaay Then
Vocal Pendulum
Alifya Lifestyle
Me, My Blog and I
Pensitivity 101 
A sprinkle of Joy

Questions for my nominees:

Which is the most favourite post you have written on your blog so far?
What blogging tips would you give to other bloggers?
Which is your favourite blogging music?
What has been the happiest moment of your life?
Which song perfectly describes you?
What is your favourite childhood memory?
Which book or movie is overhyped in your opinion?

And that’s a wrap! Hope you have enjoyed reading my answers and I look forward to reading yours too ….

Until the next post, lets keep it Strictly Lighthearted!

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination. This is my first one and I am grateful for the thought. Shortly after yours I received a couple of others though and it looks I was dealt a lucky hand. I am still pondering on the answers…
