Okay firstly, I know you’re tired of these nominations, so I’m sorry in advance folks. I just believe in mutual respect and this is why I’m taking all these awards and not apologizing despite the tight time and hectic life (I have a full time job a and a hectic life for those who think I have nothing to do at all 🙂 )

The Questions and relative answers (The questions are the same for the nominees)
1- Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?
I started this blog in 2012 and then neglected it because I just wanted to publish my writings (I write from a very long time but in Arabic) but then I discovered that blogging is much more than that so I started over at the end of 2018, I mean how people will read if there are no people at all! So I started to visit the sites, read other content, interact, and then people started to read my thoughts as I wanted to, I wanted readers who appreciate your mind and soul, I wanted to inspire if possible, and find like-minded people. Happy I’m succeeding with such lovely community.
2- What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
As the name of my blog is: “my emotional fingerprint” so mainly my personal thoughts on different subjects and my experiences / travels / feelings that might be inspiring or just useful for someone. I have my political articles in Arabic that I try to translate and post. Most my writings are in Arabic in fact. Blogging here changed that and I’m writing mostly in English now because I want many people to understand.
I like to read human behavior, psychology and inspiring posts.
3- What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?
Tough one, because each post is different but I guess my favorite are “A bird without wings in the big jungle 1 and 2” because it wasn’t easy to write such posts and “searching for a homeland”
4- What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?
If I’m in Beirut, where I live, best thing to do is to sleep. Outside the capital, it’s driving in mountains where there’s no traffic , music so loud and I sing out loud then I sit alone in the nature.
5- What are 3 of your favorite things?
Traveling mostly, quality time with people I love, helping people.
6- What are your proudest blogging moments?
When I heard words such as I’m an inspiration, such as ”Your words are hopeful and inspirational” “my posts changed someone’s day” Oh wow! Me the very regular person is an inspiration! I was so proud especially when a very dear blogger: Chris, wrote a post speaking mainly about me! Well it brought tears to my eyes to know how inspiring my experience is! If you want to check his post.
7- What are your hobbies outside of blogging?
Mainly traveling, I have a full time job so don’t have time to do lot of things and human rights volunteering (more than a hobby a passion) and going out with friends.
8- Describe your personality in 3 words:
Passionate, honest and loyal (very stubborn and I have a short temper to stupidity) to not just mention the good things.
9- What are your top 3 pet peeves?
I have more than 3 certainly! But let’s see: bad hygiene and poor choice of scent, slow drivers and when they break without traffic, people who sneak in line in front of you.
10- What’s something your followers don’t know about you?
Well they don’t know many things about me, there’s a good reason I guess so let’s keep it this way 🙂
