It’s been a little while since I’ve received a nomination for a blogging award, and it always reminds me how thankful I am for the blogging community. I joined just over a year ago. It took me several years of hearing the occasional, “why don’t you blog?” statement and writing a book to finally take the plunge. It was the best decision! I’ve had opportunity to get to know so many great people across the globe because of blogging and other social media outlets. You are amazing, my friends.
So this particular nomination is for the Creative Blogger Award.
I was nominated by the lovely and fun Lizzy at MyLittleBookBlog. Thank you Lizzy! It warms my heart to know you enjoy my blog!
As many of you are aware, we’ve started this little thing called #BlogBattle where we’re writing creative short stories every week. We don’t expect it to be your best work, but we do want to encourage each other to stretch beyond our comfort zones and exercise the creative muscles. Because of this fun activity, I’ve gotten to immerse myself in plenty of creative blogs lately! How very fun! Some of the blogs I’ll list will be participants, and other will be people I wish would participate. haha
Here are The Rules
Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media or blogs
Thank the blogger who nominated you and post the link of said blog
Share five facts about yourself to your readers
#1 Because I enjoy Doctor Who, it was inevitable that I would NEED to have themed notifications on my phone. Please send me more emails, texts, & tweets! I love to hear, “No, I’m the clever one. You’re the potato one,” and “Spoilers.”
#2 My computer station, where I do most of my writing, is next to my washer/dryer area and yet I am always behind on laundry. I have no idea how this is possible . . . or do I? (that little bit’s for Ssenlrak. 😉 )
#3 I’m kinda in love with Captain America, which my kids hate. They are willing to believe it only when I tell them that Daddy is secretly Captain America. Hey, he’s just an all-around cool guy! 🙂
#4 I sing in the shower. I sing while I brush my teeth, do the dishes, clean the toilet, walk down the sidewalk, traipse through the grocery store . . . I sing a lot. I sing as though life were an operetta where some dialog is spoken but much is sung. My kids do not always appreciate this about me. 🙂
#5 I am a DIY home repairs freak. This doesn’t mean I always enjoy it, but if it involves overcoming some obstacle and learning something new, I’m probably in the midst of it.
Enjoy these, my nominations (in no particular order):
- BlondeWriteMore – Writer/Blog Aficionado
