What?! Posting on a Saturday morning after 9 am? I know – I just made your day like a thousand times better. You’re welcome 😉
So I had to do a little bit of last minute babysitting last night and get to go into work late today! Which means I have time to answer a nomination that I received for a blogging award!
It came from Alphonso, over at Alphonso Francis White (click the pink letters to head on over there!) Which is awesome because he is an awesome blogger, and guess what! It was his first award! How sweet is that?! Check out his blog and share some love peeps.
For once, since I’m honestly a little sleep deprived (this has been like my whole week!), I’m going to follow all the rules! YES! That’s right! All. The. Rules. How unlike me.
So for the rules:
- Link to the person who nominated you (done!)
- Answer their questions (Imma get to that when I’m good and ready!)
- Nominate 8-13 people (ugh the dreaded part! I hate this part!)
- Post 3 questions for them to answer (HA! Love that part!)
Now, Alphonso asked some pretty hard questions to answer, which is why I avoided this post for almost an entire day. But here we go:
1 – Out of the blog posts that you have published, which one is your favorite and why? I can’t really pick just one post that is my favourite. I like the ones where I’m being funny and it actually comes across as funny, and the comments and responses I get from the post reflect that. It’s a nice feeling to make other people laugh.
2 – What is a unique fact about yourself that you have not covered in your blog? I don’t actually think there is anything about myself that I haven’t shared on my blog. It’s basically an open book and sometimes a little bit TMI. I’m all about the honesty and openness here. It’s a safe place for me, and you, so share baby! Share!
3 – What advice would you give to a new/future Blogger? I think the best advice I can give is just to be true to yourself and don’t get caught up in the stats. I’ve said this sooooo many times before especially about the stats. I think that I’ve kept up with my blog for so long because I just write what I want. It started as a personal journal and it’s kind of stayed that way. If I’m not writing what makes me happy, then it’s not going to work. And the stats! O-M-G the stats! The first year I was blogging I was controlled by them. They are a soul sucking torment that we don’t need in our lives. As the song from Frozen goes, let it go!
And now for my nominees! Since I haven’t done this in a long time, and I’ve had a LOT of new followers lately, I’m just going to go into my followers’ list and pick some people. If you are sad that you didn’t get nominated, feel free to answer the questions in the comment section below, or send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org , OR (omg so many options!) head on over to my Contact Me page and send me a little note.
- How Do I Grow Up
- She Gives No Fox
- An Historian About Town
- Don’t Make It Weird
- Lisa Orchard
- Blue Settia
And now my three questions:
- What’s the inspiration for your blog title and your blogging name?
- What is one guilty pleasure you enjoy too much to give up? Remember this is a cupcakes and rainbow blog so keep PG.
- When do you find yourself singing?
