Blog-Blond nominates RennyBA as friendliest blogger!

Last evening I worked on an interesting challenge. I was asked by Kuanyin of Blog-Blond to do an interview for a series she is publishing. As a network evangelist from Norway, I couldn’t resist the temptation to participate in this unique event.

Kuanyin is from Maui Hawaii, USA and is an excellent example of that blondes aren’t necessarily dumb, of course. She writes with grace and wit, and has a very interesting as well as entertaining blog (click banner to read the interview!):


Writing my responses was both thought provoking and challenging. Kuanyin is a good journalist and had fine questions for me. The interview made me think about my blogging experience and gave me the opportunity to reflect over my blogging hobby, my relationships, and my life. Of course it is very flattering to be chosen as the friendliest blogger.
You know that I believe blogging is a Givers Gain and you get out of it what you put into it. I tried my best to answer Kuanyin’s questions openly and honestly.

My interview is the second in a series in progress. I am honoured to be the first non-blond interviewed :lol: . The previous participant is the lovely Deborah from Life in Fast Lane. I encourage you all to go check out Kuanyin’s articles and look around her blog. Thanks Blog-Blond for honouring me with the opportunity to participate!!

    Thanks for your compliments Claudie and I do agree: Kuanyin really had some interesting questions which gave me the opportunity to express myself!

  15. Great interview and wonderful answers, Renny!!! you truly deserve that award!

    Thanks for your nice comment regarding the European Cup. The final game could have been more exciting had the Germans showed some interest in playing, ha! Now we are celebrating Nadal’s top performance in Wimbledon !

  16. Congratulations, Renny. You deserve that award, because you are an extremely friendly blogger. And well done in the interview, too. My, my…now I know someone famous! Heheh!

    Have a great weekend (it’s nearly here) and I hope all is well in your world.

  17. Haha – first let me say:
    Sinnataggen is the most photographed object in Norway – like Maneken Pis is in Bruxelles and Belgium.
    Blondes – well, what can I say, blonde as I’m. But blonde in Hawaii, that is certainly different from beeing blond in Norway. And the woman your writing about; she is a personality to respect and honour.

    btw. Less than 2 weeks. You know what I mean. Hurray.

  18. Congratulations Renny! Kuanyin is a special person indeed…and is also very perceptive to have chosen you as the Friendliest Blogger! :) I am looking forward to October!

    Thanks for the compliments Olga – Yea, I feel of course flattered :-)
    Looking forward to see you too!
