Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination

Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination

Psst…somehow someone thought I was worthy of this award. I crept in through the back door, six days late. If I picked you I hope that’s OK. If not just comment and I’ll select another blogger. I want this to be fun and not the bloggers equivalent of chain mail. Sneaks back out the door, trips on the way out. Damn it, I think I broke my toe (again).

The Sunshine Blogger Award is given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who inspire positivity and creativity in the blogging community… A peer honor for sure!

Here are the rules…

  1.  Thank the person who nominated you.
  2.  Answer the questions from the person who has nominated you.
  3.  Nominate other bloggers for the award.
  4.  Write the same amount of questions for the bloggers you have nominated.
  5.  Notify the bloggers you have nominated.

And here are my answers…

1.  Big thanks to Emily Gaffney of 50 Shades of Aging, found here: https://www.50shadesofaging.com/index  Emily and I connected a few months ago and have been stalking following each other’s blog ever since.

2.  Answers to Emily’s questions:

  1. How do you describe your blog to others? Interesting question, I don’t usually describe my blog to others. It started as a cathartic hobby and I’m still fleshing it out. My posts swing wildly between humor and poignant reflection
  2. Where do you find inspiration for your blog posts? I write about life, past and present. 
  3. Do you have a blogging routine? I do not have a blogging routine.
  4.  Why did you begin blogging? I made a new friend, one of those instant connections. She wrote a blog and I became curious and poof started a blog.
  5. Use one sentence to describe yourself. Former bad ass, carving a niche for myself for when these birds fly from the nest.
  6. What makes you happy on a daily basis? Family, friends and spending time on meaningful endeavors.
  7. What would you say to yourself if today was your first day blogging? Proofread.
  8. Describe something most people don’t know about you… I speak six languages, once volunteered for the Peace Corps and excel at Calculus (lies, all lies).
  9.  What makes you feel satisfied with a new blog post? Profound relief from exercising demons or a smirk because I managed to make myself chuckle.
  10. Describe your “ideal Saturday”… Start the day with a workout, shower put on clean sweats and cook while listening to Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.
  11. What is your favorite inspirational quote? “To Thine Own Self Be True” William Shakespeare

3.  Nominate other bloggers for the award:

–  Mydangblog – https://educationalmentorship.com/about/

–  Redneck Latte Ravings – http://www.rednecklatte.com/about/

–  Just Typikel – https://www.kellylmckenzie.com/my-story/

4.  Questions for nominated bloggers:

  1.  What geographic place do you consider home (past or present location)?
  2.  Favorite person you don’t personally know?
  3.  Why do you blog?
  4.  If you could live anywhere, where would that be?
  5.   Describe yourself with 3 words…
  6.   What negative thought takes up the most space in your head?
  7.   What do you like most about yourself?
  8.   Where you a bully, a target, defender or under the radar in school?

  1. Awesome! I guess I’m still new enough that I would have walked through fire for bragging rights to my (hopefully) first award nomination. Though unable to name the exact feeling I experienced with said nomination, I now understand it to be (as you said) akin to breaking my toe on the way out of a chain mail quagmire! Mixed blessings!

    Great answers Bryce! And thanks for playing! Will comment when I get to computer! 😉

    PS- wait wait don’t tell me is a Saturday fave 🤣🤣

    • You’re fine – I wasn’t sure if anyone had gotten too you yet….seems I’m late by 5 years. There was a disclaimer at the end of my sentence regarding the 6 languages, Peace Corps and excelling at Calculus (lies, all lies). So that’s a solid “no”.
