[Vote For Me] Singapore Blog Awards 2012 – Best Individual Blog! :D

This post can also be titled “The Interviewer Gets Interviewed”. One of those rare times when I am not interviewing someone but I am the one being interviewed – and I have to upload the interview myself too! LOL! 😀

Have you noticed the new web badge on my blog that looks like this:

Out of the hundreds of bloggers who were nominees for this Best Individual Blog category, I was picked to be one of the ten finalists! Certainly one of the highlights of 2012 for me!

And here I answer the questions that the Singapore Blog Awards Team sent me:

1.    How do you feel about being one of the finalists in the Singapore Blog Awards 2012?

I’m absolutely THRILLED!

Honestly, I had signed up for the SBA with a heavy heart – I thought there was little to no chance of my getting into the finals, much less winning an award. And now, being one of the finalists, I feel like I have already won!

I haven’t been blogging for a very long time (five months shy of two years) but I would like to continue blogging for as long as I can, and inspire as many people as possible with my blog. 

2.    When did you start blogging and what drew you to it? Where do you get inspiration for your blog content?

I was making S$114,000 a year in my sales job but I was bored. I wanted to interview people who seemed very happy, successful, rich and have-it-all. But I needed an excuse to go ask them probing questions. Hence, I started a blog! 🙂

I find people who inspire me and I interview them. Of course I can keep all the knowledge to myself, but I’d much rather share it for free on my blog. So come read about the millionaires, celebrities and entrepreneurs I have interviewed on WorkingWithGrace.wordpress.com!

3.    How do you feel about the other Finalists in your category this year? How do you think you will fare compared to them?

I feel honored to be their fellow Finalist. I think we have all worked hard at blogging and take pride in our blogs. 

I’m glad to be given a chance to compete and I hope YOU will cast your vote for me. Thanks in advance! 🙂

4.    Give a reason why readers should visit your blog and vote for you?

Visit my blog because I bring you the best from my interviewees – celebrities like Michelle Chong & Daniel Ong, millionaires like Peter Buffett & Dennis Wee, and many other distinguished entrepreneurs. You will even find surprises like my interview with MP Tin Pei Ling! 

Vote for me if you like what you see. Vote for me if my blog inspires you. Vote for me & I’ll bring you even more inspiring interviews. 🙂
