“Liebster Award”: 11 Questions for Dr. Nico Rose

Liebster AwardThis is a little off-topic: I´ve been asked to fill in a questionnaire on myself as part of the initiative “Liebster Award” that is meant to draw attention and to promote interesting blogs. I was nominated by Petra Becker of International Art Bridge. Now I am to answer her 11 questions, then I get to nominate up to 11 bloggers with my own 11 questions. So here we go:

Why did you start a blog?

Because it´s the greatest things about the internet: you´re a nobody from somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Germany, you get the chance to broadcast your (or other people´s great) ideas, and suddenly, people start to read. Literally, all over the world – even if it´s just a couple of hundred people per day. That´s the best thing since sliced bread.

How much time do you spend on your blog?

A couple of hours per week.

What do you expect of other blogs?

Relevance.

What do you like most about your friends?

That they are and will remain my friends – even though I regularly tend to disappear from their lives for prolonged periods of time.

Who´s your favorite author?

Used to be Nick Hornby, currently, I basically read non-fiction only.

Who´s your favorite artist?

My almost three-year-old son.

Who are your everyday heroes?

Currently, I do admire the social media editors who run the Facebook account of the German Federal Government. They´re doing a darn good job (considering the severity and complexity of their topics) and have to put up with a lot crazy sh.t in return.

What´s your earthly bliss?

The gorgeous Indian food at Restaurant Maharani in my hometown.

What´s your favorite pastime?

Cuddling with my son. And writing. And speaking. And then a some more cuddling…

How and where do you want to live?

I am very content with what I have here and now.

What´s your motto?

Before you go out to change the world, walk three times through your own house. (from China)

And my “Liebster Award” goes to…

Here are your 11 questions … auf Deutsch 🙂
