4. Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.

If you had to choose to be on a reality show, which one would it be?

The only reality shows that I like to watch are the cooking ones like Master Chef or The Great British Bake Off. I wouldn’t like to be on them though as I am a total amateur.

2. If you could change your name, what would it be?

When I was trying to come up with aname for my blog I considered several options. Among them was “Kaleidoscope” but I thought that it was quite a mouthful and not too easy to spell.

Another name that I considered was “Sugar & Spice” but it seemed a tad old-fashioned so I settled for “Salted Caramel” which conveyed almost the same spirit.

So maybe if I changed the name ever, it would be one of these, but right now I am happy with what I have.

3. How long have you been blogging?

Almost a year since I began in January 2018.

4. How frequently do you blog?

As frequently as I can,which is quite variable. If I could manage the time I would probably be posting several times a day. It’s something I want to do all the time.

5. Share the link to a favourite post of yours, why is this your favourite?

It was this post;

5 Productivity Hacks That You Already Know But Keep Forgetting

I like this one too!

Not particularly. I am just happy that people are reading, liking and commenting on my posts.

7. Which countries are you missing from your WordPress globe and would really like to see filled in on your map?**

No idea. See the last answer!

8. Are you a ‘crafty’ person? (Knit, sew, paint, macrame … ?)

Yes, I am fairly “crafty” though again I can’t spend as much time on them as I like. on them.I have always loved embroidery which I do while catching up on my favouritte T.V, shows. I enjoy knitting but need my mum’s help with the tricky bits.

Sewing and macrame: I have no experience yet;; But who knows, maybe later.

Oh ! And I can do some amateur painting too, still life and abstract type.

(What a great opportunity this is to blow my own trumpet0.

9. Assuming that you celebrate, do you shop in advance for Christmas or do you leave everything to the last minute?

Christmas is not my holiday as I am a Muslim. However on my festival days called Eid, I like to prepare well ahead of time.

Inspite of that some minor thing or the other always crops up at the last minute; man proposes, God disposes!

10. Do you participate in sports?

Not at all, I am completely sedentary. But I love to go for walks at my own sedate pace.

11. Are you a sweet or savoury person?

I am an everything person. I love trying new flavours and cuisines.
