I would like to thank lovely Tosha Michelle for nominating me for The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. Tosha is an extraordinary poet, musician and author and she shares her beautiful gift of lyrical language to the world on her blog: Everything I Never Told You. She is absolutely one of my favorite poets, and I invite everyone to visit her blog at: http://laliterati.com/
Say “Thank You” to the person who nominated you & link their blog to your post.
Answer the 10 questions given to you. Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers and let them know they have been nominated. Include the Award Badge in your post.
What made you want to start your blog?
I was attempting to get some of my work published and the officials kept asking me: Where do you promote your writing? What is your social media outreach? How many followers do you have on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr? I responded to all these questions with “Unh?”
2. What have you wanted to do on your blog but haven’t yet? Why not?
I think I have pretty much done everything with it that I could possibly want to do. I enjoy photography, I should post more photos…..Time is my biggest foe.
3. Name one item on your bucket list, or more if you like?
I want to go to Europe for an extended trip to just relax and travel and not have a schedule. I would love to live on a beach somewhere.
4. What is your biggest fear?
Fear itself….or just being too busy to really enjoy life. I would like to slow down some.
5. What is your best moment in life?
I would say being a mother to three children. They grew up so fast!
6. With New Years fast approaching, do you make resolutions? If so, name one. If not, why don’t you like to make them?
I don’t make resolutions. I am pretty much aware of what I need to do for physical, mental, and financial health and I just try to maintain all year long.
7. If you could host a challenge on your blog, what kind would it be?
Maybe something to do with food. I like food 🙂
8. What was the name of your first pet? What do you remember the most about them?
My first pet was a little, spotted rat terrier dog. Her name was Cheetah. I don’t know why I named a small dog after a big, dangerous cat, must be my whimsical personality. I remember how tiny she was as a puppy when my grandad gave her to me.
9. Did you ever go to a high school reunion? Was it fun or not?
I have gone to high school reunions, and they were fun, until nobody knew who I was anymore. Now it isn’t so much fun, I think I will pass 🙂
10. Do you have a pet peeve?
Yep – mean, stupid, rude people.
