The Entertainer Blogger Award

entertainer-blogger-award.jpg

I’ve been nominated for the Entertainer Blogger Award (which I find to be a rather awkward name—why not the Entertaining Blogger Award?) by The Well-Red Mage.  Thank you!  You can find his post about it here.  I’ve been following his gaming blog for about a month, and I can confirm it is indeed entertaining.

The Rules of The Entertainer Blogger Award

  • Write a post including the award picture.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring, and most importantly ENTERTAINING!
  • Add these rules to the post.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and leave a link to their blog!
  • Answer the questions down below.

What do you hope to gain from blogging?

Mostly I just want an outlet for geeking out.  I hope to continue to gain blogger friends so we can all geek out together.  One of the reasons I started this blog was to get back into writing, so eventually I hope to write/publish fiction.

What genre of film entertains you most?

I think sci-fi has to be the obvious answer here.  Fantasy, too.  Anything with a little imagination, action, and maybe some romance is great.  I also love adaptations of classic literature, and the animated films from Disney and Ghibli are among my favorites.

Do you consider yourself a writer, and what inspires you to write?

I am definitely a writer and have been since my school days.  Mostly I just want to write down all the crazy ideas floating around in my head.  I get inspired by other great stories, whether in books, video games, or movies.  In a different vein, my husband also inspires me to write, because he says he wants me to write a best-selling novel so he doesn’t have to work anymore.  You and me both, sweetheart.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

I’ve mentioned several before.  In the lab, I still hate when people use things without asking, but I’ll also add: not putting things back they way they found it.  Maybe I just hate it when people touch my stuff haha.  Though to get a little philosophical, I think a lot of my pet peeves boil down to people not considering other people and their thoughts and feelings.  Empathy is so important.

Why did you choose your particular WordPress username?

This is something I cover on my About page because it’s important to me to explain it.  My real name is not Mei-Mei, and I am not Asian at all, but I’ve been writing under this pen name since high school.  I chose it as an homage to Meiling Li, my favorite character in my favorite anime, and also because “Li Meiling” was already taken as a user name on fanfiction.net haha.

Nominations:

  1. BQB @ Bookshelf Battle
  2. Luther @ Infinite Free Time
  3. Star Wars Anonymous
  4. Jaysen @ Jaysen Headley Writes
  5. Michelle @ The Writing Hufflepuff
  6. Teresa @ Dirt Road Wife
  7. Arria @ Fujinsei
  8. Everyone @ Comparative Geeks
  9. Fisticuffs and Shenanigans
  10. Aria @ My Infinite Reading List
  11. elleturner4 @ Dot knows!
  12. geeknots

There is no obligation to go with this nomination; I know some of you don’t do awards (which I recognize are glorified chain letters) or may have gotten this one already.  I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy your blog.

But if you would like to make a post about it, you may answer the same questions I did, or the “original” ones:

  1. Why did you start to blog in the first place?
  2. What is your favourite book?
  3. What do you dislike the most?
  4. What are your favourite pastimes?

    Congrats on the award! One good thing about these chain awards is that they have led me to find many entertaining bloggers out there!

    I look forward to reading your best-selling novel someday 🙂 My ultimate pipe dream is to get paid to sit around and write stories all day, lol

      Thanks! I agree, I love finding out what other blogs my blogger friends read–I usually end up following at least one.
