Almost a month ago, I got a comment on my blog that I have been nominated for The Very Inspiring Blogger Award. I was busy traveling the world and then – catching up with work, blogging, commenting and replies but I am finally here to humbly accept this award and continue the thread.
I heard for the first time about the Liebster Blog Award just last week when Lorraine nominated me for getting it at her blog Lorraine Reguly’s Life. The idea behind this award is to recognize new bloggers and help them get some buzz and promote their blogs. There’s no real (tangible) award – it’s a sign of recognition and it means to you (the blogger) exactly what you want it to mean. 😉
Back in 2009 when the financial crisis hit my home country, too I had just returned from one of my work-and-live abroad journeys and I had to look for work. It was a time when employers were heavily abusing their employees in the sense of making highly qualified professionals work for very insufficient salaries. And this was not an option for me.
