Michelle Motivated Monday: The Keativ Blogger Award and My Famous Blogger Club Interview

This Monday is inspired by an awesome internet marketer and online friend of mine, Michelle Adams. She is a seriously talented lady with a great IM career going on. So I suggest you go over to her blog Michelle-Adams.com and start taking some of her advice.

Michelle has done two awesome things for me recently and I have no idea why I deserve such things but she seems to think so! First she passed on the Kreativ blogger award to me. So I will pass this onto 7 others later in this post.

Secondly she did an excellent interview over at the Famous Bloggers Club where she recommended this blog. This led onto an interview recently being published with me, again I have the link and a bit more to say about that later in this post :). If you want to get to know Michelle a little more her interview can be read here: Michelle Adams telling her Blog Story

The Kreativ Blogger Award

kreativawardFirstly thanks again to Michelle for giving me this awesome award. Like Michelle, I had never heard of this award until she passed it to me and I agree it’s an excellent idea. Quite simply the award is something that someone gives you if your blog has influenced them in a positive way. And therefore it’s your responsibility and job to pass it onto 7 others who have done the same for you. Another part of the award is to give 7 interesting facts about yourself!

Seven interesting/boring facts about Forest Parks

  1. I am British (from London) but have been living away from home for the last 3 years. I lived in Montreal, Canada and currently live in Cairo, Egypt.
  2. I am Vegetarian but occasionally eat fish and then feel guilty for weeks on end.
  3. I started my career as an artowrker/graphic designer in London
  4. My partner of 3 years, Lara, is American and I tease her about it every day ๐Ÿ™‚ !
  5. I wish I could live my life with no impact to the environment and am slowly pushing in that direction
  6. I am obsessed with being on my computer even though I won’t admit it in person
  7. I don’t like Facebook very much. Does this public admission mean I will lose all my readers?

Ok, now the Kreativ Blogger Award goes to these 7 awesome bloggers.

Joe Swopes (http://ImWithJoe.com) – Joe was one of the first video bloggers that I saw where I actually wanted to sit through the whole video. He has an awesome style and as I have got to know him, he is an awesome guy.

Freddie Taylor (http://thinktaylor.com) – Freddie has an awesome video style too and is a very motivational chap. I have been getting to know him better in the last few months and his impact on me is nothing but positive. Freddie’s site that I have linked is his new site that offers great services for anyone needing a business blog built but his blog that inspired me to add him can be found here: FreddieTaylor.com

Allyn Hane (http://bloggerillustrated.net) – I have known Allyn for a while but did not have much contact with him for the last year. He contacted me recently regarding some design work for his new beer blog and I went and visited his blog. I was amazed at how far it had come since I last checked and the guy is an straight talking inspiration for anyone. Sorry I wasn’t following you all this time Allyn!

No Impact Man (http://noimpactman.com) – I don’t know No Impact Man personally but his way of life and blogging about it has been personally inspiring me to look at my way of life. He is pretty busy these days with a book and a movie so probably won’t pass this award on but still he is awesome.

Ruth (http://www.webcareergirl.com) – Ruth is an awesome blogger and is on a similar path to me in the IM world so I enjoy reading about her progress very much.

Anna Williams (http://buildingfromnothing.com) – Anna has an excellent blog and you should also check out her photography too. She constantly passes out great advice and information to her readers and seems to be a very nice person too.

Melvin Dichoso (http://www.melvinblog.com) – Melvin is a teenager but he knows his stuff and I enjoy his posts. His blog is personal and contains lots of useful info, so that’s why he gets the award ๐Ÿ™‚

My Interview

After Michelle recommended me Hisham, the owner of the blog contacted me for an interview. I was extremely busy and rushed the interview a bit but none the less I think there is some interesting info about me in it!

I submitted the interview a few weeks ago and like me Hisham was a busy man. So sadly he did not read it until recently. He emailed me to inform that he had just moved to USA from Cairo! If he had skimmed the email when I sent it then we may have had a chance to meet in person before he hopped over the water…. Funny how life goes!

One more thing……. The Music!

What’s Monday without some Music! I hate this song ๐Ÿ™‚ But Michelle mentioned that she loves it so I thought it would be fitting to include it!

It’s a Beautiful Day – U2

As always, let me know how you are doing.

  1. Thank you forest! That’s very cool, I really appreciated it. I suppose I should pass the award along now, correct? I will add it to my list:) ๐Ÿ™‚ !

    I laughed when I read “and [she] seems to be a very nice person too.” My first thought was “ha ha, I have them all fooled!”

    No, but seriously, it’s great to get an award. And it inspires me to blog more. Thanks again!

  2. First comment from 35,000 foot? Wifi on a plane above chicago on american airlines! New to me!! ๐Ÿ™‚ great fun. Its like when you sent your first email! ๐Ÿ™‚

    well done on the award mate!

  3. “7. I donโ€™t like Facebook very much. Does this public admission mean I will lose all my readers?”

    LOL! I don’t like facebook that much too. Don’t worry you won’t lose readers haha.

  4. The Kreativ Blogger award is a great idea. I love the concept of passing the award onto 7 other bloggers.

    As for your song choice, I agree that it is not a very good song. I used to like some old U2, but I can’t stand them anymore. I don’t know if it’s the poor quality of their new music or if it’s the way Bono thinks he’s god’s gift to humanity.

  5. Awesome post Forest. If I knew you had an award I would have tried a little harder!!! Sorry for the no contact, I’ve bought a new computer and now have a new Internet provider so I was OUT for over a week!


    1. The internet is pretty flaky at times here in Cairo so I have had some out time, I feel your pain there :).

      No worries about the contact and I hope the new comp is serving you well.

  6. Wow Forest, thanks for posting this and a big thank you for putting up with my music tastes, lol! I enjoyed the clip immensely, wished I was in the crowd actually, looked awesome!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s obsessed with being on their computer. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I look forward to checking out the seven blogs you’ve nominated.

    Thanks again, I don’t think I’ve ever been the motivation for a post before, well at least not on a Monday, ha haa!

    1. Hey Michelle, ha ha, no problem with the music and glad you enjoyed it. As I mentioned in another comment reply I think the Joshua Tree era was better. Also Sunday Bloody Sunday and Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me Kill Me were both good U2 songs.

      I’m sure you have inspired many posts.

  7. Thanks so much Forest! How nice to see this ๐Ÿ™‚ Your facts are interesting too – I’m doing the same thing with vegetarian (though I’m worse than you at the moment, but slowly cutting meat) and also becoming more green. It’s why I love flipping ‘green’ sites ๐Ÿ™‚ Will have to post this up on my blog soon.

    1. Hey Ruth,

      I have been a vegetarian for around 10 years now and on the whole I don’t even think about meat anymore. The fish thing started as I was training for the London Marathon and was having energy problems on the really long runs… Another runner suggested Fish and I tried reluctantly, and it seemed to help!

      You can get enough energy and protein without the fish but it’s a little harder work. The fish for m is a taste thing these days though and I keep saying I need to cut it out 100%!

      Green blogs are the way to go, buyers love them too!

      1. I really love eating fish too – and meat – though the less I eat meat, the less I want it. I never thought it would be so easy, but I can honestly say it is. The only hard thing is when I go out to eat – that’s when I tend to eat all the meaty things. I think it will be hard for me to cut fish completely, like it is for you. Anyway – I am jst about to go and post about this on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I don’t know who I stumbled onto this site, but I am glad I did. Your shoice in music is great, I really like U2. It also seems that you have a good community…I want to be a part of it.

    Do you also teach me how to make money with adsense?

  10. you deserver the award alright.. ๐Ÿ˜€
    i hate U2 too.. but sometime their song just good enough.

  11. As for your song choice, I agree that it is not a very good song. I used to like some old U2, but I canโ€™t stand them anymore. I donโ€™t know if itโ€™s the poor quality of their new music or if itโ€™s the way Bono thinks heโ€™s godโ€™s gift to humanity.

    1. Hey, Bono is NOT god’s gift to humanity, he does a lot of work but many people do far more than him. He loves the attention he gets from doing it.

      I do however think the world is a better place for him and was never criticizing the good he has done…. I just hate the music :)… oh and his arrogance.

  12. That’s cool that you guys are doing the Kreativ Blogger Awards =D And Hey… U2 has some good songs, I had never heard a video of them Live, I was pleasantly surprised by Bono’s singing live. I know there are alot of bands out there that sound completely different live compared to their studio enhanced CDs.

    Till then,


  13. actually, i am not fun of U2, but i watched their concert last month live at youtube, and they are awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. What a great thing for Michelle to do for you. I think the idea of the award is great. It keeps people informed of what and who you are watching.

    I don’t think it will hurt your blog that you don’t like Facebook. It isn’t for everyone, but it kinda forces you to be apart of it because it seems like everyone is. Shoot my 68 year old Dad got on it just so he could keep up with his Navy Buddies.

  15. I just finished my initially piece of furnisHolangs right after reading the guide of styles.. I am surprised at how quick it was to build up people elements on the disk. My following mission is going to a little larger but fingers down the easiest to learn blueprints.

  16. well my friend made a blog and he won’t show me what his blog is until he finishes everything with it. So i was wondering if there was a way to find someones blogger with their email address. If anyone could show me how. thatd be great thanks!.

  18. Hello there, simply become alert to your weblog via Google, and found that it is really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I will be grateful if you happen to proceed this in future. Lots of folks might be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  19. You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something that I think I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely large for me. I am taking a look forward for your subsequent put up, I’ll try to get the cling of it!

  20. My brother recommended I would possibly like this website. He was once entirely right. This post truly made my day. You can not consider simply how so much time I had spent for this information! Thank you!

  21. Hey There. I found your blog the usage of msn. This is
    an extremely well written article. Iโ€™ll make sure to bookmark it and come back to learn more of your
    helpful info. Thanks for the post. I will definitely comeback.

  22. Spot on with this write-up, I actually suppose this website needs way more consideration.
    Iโ€™ll in all probability be once more to learn much more, thanks for that info.

  23. One other thing to point out is that an
    online business administration training is designed for scholars to be
    able to well proceed to bachelor’s degree courses. The Ninety credit certification meets the other bachelor college degree requirements when you earn the associate of arts in BA online, you will have access to the modern technologies in this field. Several reasons why students want to get their associate degree in business is because they’re interested in this area and want to get the general schooling necessary prior to jumping
    to a bachelor diploma program. Thanks for the tips you
    actually provide in your blog.

  24. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
