Liebster Award

SocioTech’nowledge has been nominated for the Liebster Award, an award which recognizes writers and allows them to nominate additional writers.

I really appreciate and thank Christopher (Eusociality Site) for the nomination.

The tradition of the Liebster Award is for the writer to list facts about themselves, answer questions provided by the nominator, nominate 11 additional writers, and ask them a new set of questions.

Answers to Questions Asked

  1. What is the theme or focus of your website or writing?
    “SocioTech’nowledge” features posts, articles and content/developments related to Science & Tech, Education & Society, Organizations & Systems, etc.
    The primary interest of the blog and myself (and a rather ambitious one, I admit) is on topics such as Science, Technology, Sociology, Biology, Human Capital and Resources (HR), Human Performance Technology (HPT) & Management, Psychology, Neurology, etc., in which readers can/are very welcome to get engaged and involved by liking, commenting and rating all the content on the blog.
  1. What do you enjoy about feedback and conversation with readers?
    It’s an essential process to truly grow, improve and build stronger contents/networks: mutual feedback & reviews.
    Like many other bloggers and writers – independently of the experience – I encourage and gratefully welcome readers/followers and visitors feedback, by getting engaged and involved on the “SocioTech’nowledge” blog by liking, commenting and rating all the content, I humbly appreciate it.
  1. When did you begin your website, and what has changed since this time?
    As a new blogger (since July 11th) I’m continuously learning, growing and polishing the content, combined tags and categories, making step-by-step SocioTech’nowledge more appealing to visitors and readers.
    The embedding and tagging of contents improved (since I only knew the basics of the basic of HTML code), parallel to the ongoing and continuous understanding of the construction of content(s), trends and SEO.
  1. What do you hope to achieve with your writing?
    The process of Writing and (Re)search behind it for me is an hobby, as much as a passion. I love writing, digitally or on paper – which I prefer ten times more -, because it has that “special taste” you can’t achieve with mere typing or texting.
    I write about my interests, about what moves me and makes me boil inside, gets my blood pumping, what moves me forward.
  1. Do you have any set goals for your website?
    As a new blogger I’m still polishing  the tags/categories combined on a post – as well as the content itself – making it more appealing.
    I’m working to appear more often on the Reader, by aiming and targeting a more solid audience and followers on the niche “SocioTech’nowledge” is inserted.
    I’ll also invest and learn more about SEO, develop a (try and error) plan to increase daily visitors and boost clicks/referrers, while creating greater content, promotion and contribution.
  1. What do you enjoy about the process of writing, sharing ideas, or art?
    The best way to answer about the whole process of the blog is by borrowing TED’s motto: “Ideas worth spreading” and “arguing about”. I try to cover/focus on modern, contemporary and prospective topics/categories, ambulating from social sciences to economics, to global, focusing on globally shared issues.
    I really believe on the infinite possibilities and power of the propagation of (inspiring) knowledge, insights, facts, ideas, quotes, articles, etc., on the power they have to positively inspire, affect, consolidate and even change attitudes, quotidian, lives “and, ultimately, the world”.
  1. Is there anything else you would like to share about your website or experience?
    Alongside with the referred on the 6th question, I must add that I pursue, live and ambulate inspired by great people, talks, intellectuals of many fields and quotes such as:
    “Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.” – Leon Joseph Suenes
    “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
    “Letting our dreams be bigger than our fears, our actions louder than our words, and our faith stronger than our feelings.”

  1. Congratulations, I have nominated your website for the Liebster Award! I wanted to thank some of the writers I have talked with on WordPress.

    The Liebster Award is used to recognize writers, and allows each nominee to nominate additional website writers. The tradition is for each each nominee to: (1) list 11 facts about themselves; (2) answer the 11 questions asked by the writer who nominated them; (3) to ask 11 new questions; and (4) to nominate 11 additional websites/blogs, and inform them of this and the rules. This can be done as a Page on your website, or it could be completed in a comment box. To see the new questions I have asked, visit the Awards and FAQs Page on my website Eusociality Blog.

    • Thank you very much Christopher for the nomination, I really appreciate it, I’m very grateful and honored by it and with the recognition of the SocioTech’nowledge blog and the process behind it 🙂
      I’ve been rather busy lately, but I’ll answer the questions and nominate new blogs/websites on my About page this afternoon/evening.

      Thanks again for the nomination and opportunity.

      Best regards,

  2. Hi Pedro, am reading your About page, again, seems different from the first time. This time I see I’m nominated for another award I was not aware of! How could I have missed that. Thanks very much. However, am getting about my “assignment” and can’t figure out how to post the two awards! As a “newer” blogger than I am, you probably know how to do that!! :):)

  3. Thanks for the reblog. NIce clean theme and format. You might get more reader involvement by starting conversations with your readers about the posts…some bloggers use a little commentary/intro before each article reblogs – something that show’s your feelings/analysis about the piece. Just an idea.
    Enjoyed touring your blog! Fascinating stuff

    • I really appreciate the feedback and thank you very much for the constructive and useful suggestion Phil, since that was my long-term plan for the blog (which was making blog posts on a 5:1 or 3:1 ratio, meaning 3 or 5 *commented* reblogs for each original post), and you reinforced my plan, which I’m very grateful for 🙂

      The (medium)long-term plan fails when there is so much interesting, new and innovative content, article or video on the World Wide Web – thanks to Web 2.0 – and I see myself with tons of Tabs and Bookmarks full of awesome stuff and wanting to comment them all – thanks to my interest and personal curiosity in many fields -, while tons and tons of new ones are published and accumulated «every second»…and the original plan unfortunately goes down the drain for a while, as I try to juggle with my daily life, activities, college and other functions/positions…

      I’ll from now on edit old or recent Reblogs with comments and analysis, one by one, even if it means one-a-week, while saving new and interesting Reblogs for later, slowly building more content on the blog and fulfiling my initial plan… 🙂

      Thank you very much again for your awesome feedback and help Phil, I’ll definitely do that

      Best regards,
      Pedro Calado

      • You sound very organized. It is difficult to find time to write quality blog post – we all struggle with it. Once a week might be a good plan – or you can do what many bloggers do : post a short note indicating you need to take a short break. People respect that and don’t have a problem with it.
        Might be wise to be cautious using so many reblogs ( especially without contacting for permission first) as many bloggers get annoyed/irritated and if they visit a blog and see it’s simply a series of reblogs, it is often assumed that person is simply using everyone else’s material and building their stats on other people’s works. Once you blog gets that repuation, it’s difficult. Just FYI, you/your comments are going into spam folder.
        Commenting , responding to comments, a a bit of original writing should help.
        You might want to read some of the archives and posts from Onecoolsite. She’s been blogging a very very long time. On a bit of a break right now, but she’s posting every so often. Her last 2 posts might intrigue you.

        Anyway, wishing you great success with your blog – getting started is alway hard – so much to learn – and time is a factor. Be seeing you around the neighborhood. (and stopping by to see how you’re getting along.) Hasta later
