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 πŸ™‚ !
  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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ 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.
