I have a Blog Your Heart Out Award!

Blog Your Heart Out Award for Sand In My ToesI would like to thank the lovely Sara of mumturnedmom (and my recent guest blogger), who nominated me for the Blog Your Heart Out Award! I really do like to write from my heart, so this is special to me.

I have to answer five questions and nominate five bloggers. So, here goes:

1. What/Who encouraged you to start blogging?

Sand In My Toes is about chronicling my experiences as a first-time mother. I guess my son is the reason I really started this blog, so I could record these memories forever. Writing is something that I can't do without, so blogging is naturally the thing for me to do!

2. How did you choose what topics to blog about?

Parenting, of course, is my main subject. Another important change in my life around the time I started this blog was our move to Dubai, so life here also makes up a significant part of this blog's content. I have always had a keen interest in online technology and social media, and have also worked in this field, so I do share blogging tips as well. Apart from that, I like writing about places we visit, whether on vacation, or within this country.

3. What is something most people don’t know about you?

I think I have overshared information about myself previously on this blog! Hmm, apart from English, the languages I know are Hindi, Urdu and Arabic.

4. What 3 words describe your style? 

Personal, Creative and Humourous.

5. What do you like to do when you are not blogging?

I like to spend every waking moment with my family, mostly Little Dude. Toddlers can be trying, yes, but they're also a lot of fun! I also love cooking and mall hopping in true Dubai-style!

Now, I am nominating three bloggers that I think are fantastic. You should check out their blogs:

Janine of Janine's Confessions of a Mommyaholic

Kriss of Over there to Here

Orli of Orli, Just Breathe

Of course, there's no pressure to post about this, I just wanted to give you guys a shout-out!

If you like my blog, please help me win the Expat Blog Awards 2013 
by commenting on and/or sharing my entry here. Thank you!

Thank you so much Tarana for passing this lovely award on to me and huge congrats yourself for being nominated. I, too, started my blog for much of the same reasons to share about my family and/or kids :)

I love your blog Tarana so I feel honoured that you've nominated me too. Just saw your interview with Expats Blog and enjoyed reading and finding out more about you.

So glad you could relate, Janine!

Tarana Khan said...

Yes, that interview gives away everything about me! Your encouraging words really mean a lot to me. Thanks Kriss!

Ooh I'd love to speak Arabic properly - I do know how to read it but not what it means properly

I studied it in school since I grew up in the UAE, but I'm still not that good at it!

Tell me what you think about this post!
