“One Lovely Blog Award? What’s that?”
Well, dear reader. It has been the highlight of my week.
After looking at my viewer stats from last week, I was pretty discouraged. To be honest, my ratings have been dropping fairly significantly. Blogging has be a significant part of my sanity since graduation, and I love reaching out to help people like you!
SO…. *cue applause* A special thank you and shout-out to Kailtyn from Here’s to Twenty Something. Everyone should check her blog out. She nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award, a blogging trend to encourage your fellow bloggers to keep up the amazing work they’re doing.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the person that nominated you and leave a link to their blog
- Post about the award
- Share 7 facts about yourself
- Nominate at most 15 people
- Tell your nominees the good news!
It was so sweet of her to nominate me, and it really lifted my spirits. So, I accept my nomination. Here goes nothing!
- Since my 22nd birthday, my Monday through Saturday alarm has been 22 by Taylor Swift (and I have no plans to change that any time soon).
Some of my greatest inspiration (especially for writing) has been from art, especially Rob Gonsalves’s paintings.
- I will never get tired of good ‘ole Sunday morning cartoons, like Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, The Jetsons, The Flintstones, Animaniacs, and Tom and Jerry.
- I am a sap. Anything romantic, cheesy, or flirty makes me giggle uncontrollably.
- I used to do as many sports and extra-curricular activities as I could because I wanted to try everything – and I never wanted to quit (even if I didn’t like something) because I always thought that I may like it some day. I did everything I could: basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, cross country, track and field, dance, cheer, Girl Scouts, piano, band, choir, and youth group. The only reason I didn’t join football is because Dad told me no. ;P
- I despise hot drinks because I can never wait long enough for them to cool … so I burn my tongue. Every. Single. Time.
- I’ve always wanted to be a visual artist, like my younger sisters. Alas, even my stick figures are sad.
- BONUS! My most embarrassing moment was in 6th grade (right, Hilary?). Short of the story: rollerblades are not the same as ice skates.
Lastly, I nominate:
Chrysa’s Corner: Exploring life, creatively (Chrysa Keenon)
Nichole Parks: a flair for the traumatic
Inkwell Insights: your words are your world (Elizabeth Syson)
Exploring Local: Local Is Wherever You Are (Laura Koenig)
Kate G. Jameson: Fairytales and Fantasies
Ladies, you inspire me. Write on.
