Yesterday morning I got an info from BD that I have been featured at his blog on his recent post titled Interesting Blog of the Month, May 2010.
Thank you, BD for your kindness and interest to interview me and feature me at your blog. I am honored to have such huge support from one of my special fellow bloggers. For being featured at his blog, I have received an award from him, Excellent Site Bluedreamer's Top 5 Award. It will be treasured in this blog and special memorabilia in blogging.
Below I also forward his interview with me:
BD: What is your blog about?
FA: My blog at www.fidaabbott.blogspot.com is my personal blog, a cyber place where I can share everything in my life.
BD: When and how did you started blogging?
FA: I started blogging on February 10, 2006
BD: I know that aside from being an active blogger, you are also a mom and a professional writer, how do you manage your time, my friend?
FA: I blog whenever I want to share something and have spare time. I write for my writing projects most of the time when my husband and my daughter were not in home--he is going to work and she is going to school—or when they were sleeping early in the morning.
BD: I am so happy that I won the Enthusiasm Giveaway Contest, I am so excited to read your book... Can you tell us something about "Enthusiasm?"
FA: ENTHUSIASM is an inspiring novel that will take readers to my own true story. I narrate the journey of my life and share how enthusiasm played a vital role in pursuing my dream in the writing world—with English as my second language—in my new country, USA. In this novel, I exemplify my experiences, my family and relationship, my inspirations, and my passage towards the remarkable goals. This novel is a reflection of my own life, how I faced obstacles, how I handled life, how I inspired and touched other people’s lives through my works, and how I achieved the amazing successes of my life and endeavors—a perfect blend of life’s spices.
Through Enthusiasm, readers will be affected by my wonderful story. Filled with hope and inspiration, strength and enthusiasm, this novel will draw out the best within its readers’ hearts and minds.
BD: What inspires you to write it?
FA: My strong enthusiastic to write my first novel and my first own true story in English had inspired me to write this novel, so this novel is the story about its self.
BD: Are you going to write new novels in the near future?
FA: Yes, I am writing now my second novel, it will be a true romance story.
BD: Back to your blog, just wanna ask, among all your great post entries, what is your most favorite?
FA: This is difficult question but I’ll try to answer it. My favorite entries are everything about my family and my achievements. The most favorite of them, I think is about my first published novel.
BD: Thanks for your time Fida, can you share us some precious tips you can share to newbies and fellow bloggers on blogging?
FA: When you blog, be creative and don’t post the boring entries. Sometimes the content is interesting but the bloggers cannot present to make them interesting to read. Don’t post entries too long. If it is, you should separate it by several entries because most of the bloggers don’t have a lot of time to read a long entry/post.
When you’re blogging or blog walking, don’t spam to other bloggers’ blogs with spam comments. This will show you that you’re a respectful and a professional blogger or not. Give the respectful comments. If you don’t agree with their thought, express it with a good manner in your writing.
But most of them, make blogging is a fun activity, especially to make friends over the internet or even to make a little bit money if you like. This will help you become a happy blogger or person.
