Award ceremony – April 2018

And yet another month has passed.

How was April different for you than March?

For me, March involved a lot of preemptive stress, difficult decisions, but also a bit of pleasure and fun. April felt emotionally less stressful, but it involved having to get a lot of challenging things done, nonetheless. I choose to begin May with hope.

One thing that has been constant throughout the past couple of months is my liking towards reading award posts. Yes, I read them! And because I like reading them, I went to assume that others do to. So here I am. Writing one in hopes you like it.

A BIG “Thank you” to all those who nominated me!

(If you were not nominated it is not because I do not think highly of you. It just means that:
1. You nominated me for that award and I do not want to just “give it back”.
2. I nominated you in the past and I just want to give other people a chance to parttake.
3. You have recent award posts on your page, so I do not want to overwhelm you.
4. …
I hope you all know (through our daily interactions) that I enjoy reading your posts and engaging with you in the comments.)

The awards I received in the month of April are:

  1. Whew! You demonstrated how it’s done, getting the Rubic’s Cube of awards nicely lined up and delivered. Inspiring and fun to read your answers and questions.

    Congrats on the recognition from so many other bloggers. And thanks for tee’ing up some new blogs for me to check out.

    Also thanks for including me as a nominee of The Sunshine Blogger Award (let me know if I didn’t align my name with the right award; don’t want to post the wrong banner). It’s such a happy visual and positive idea.

      1. Thanks for letting me know you noticed. I’ve gone through several avatars. I started with a goat, but you really couldn’t tell it was a goat.

        Then I switched to a giant “all-seeing” eyeball. It was distinctive, but kind of creepy.

        Next was a ladybug. Cute, but I felt as if whatever “bigness” I was trying to achieve in my life wasn’t represented very well by such a tiny bug.

        When I was in the Community Pool yesterday, I realized some Avatars are really distinctive. Britchy’s was one; yours is, too. PTSD Gal as well. Mine? Well, I wasn’t so sure.

        So I decided to switch it up to something bright, that would, in its color, stand out. No photo. Just WTG inside.

        Glad you recognized the change. Any comments? Good? Bad? Meh?

        I suspect it’ll continue to evolve. When I first started this blog, I didn’t understand the “utility” of the Avatar as part of “a brand.”

        Thanks for clarifying “sunshine” and for the award. It’ll take me a few days, but I WILL be doing it and looking forward.

        1. I like it. My only question is – what is the purple line at the bottom supposed to be? Are we not getting a full picture? My OCD is triggering on that. Otherwise, the color really catches the eye and it’s easily recognized. (I liked the eye, too.)

          Liked by 3 people

          1. I eliminated the line. It’s now just bright pink with WTG in the middle, and bigger; a minimalist look but hopefully identifiable (I gotta stick with it).

            I liked the eye too. But I wanted something brighter. And not as…creepy.

            Thanks for the feedback!

  2. My favorite answer was the trenchcoat one.

    I think it’s cool that you choose to be in between jobs.
    I’ve often made a mistake to stay too long at a job which made me miserable.
    Even though I keep saying that I will never do it again, I just want the money at the end of the month. And you know by now how I feel about money 😉

    Thanks for the nomination! From now on I will participate in these more!

  3. Goldie! I see what you did in NO 3. I was almost sure you would respond to the question in a gender specific manner.
    But, not you!😒
    At least I got some facts to take back to my detective board.😋
    You are a person with a trench coat who wears glasses, would rather have vanilla and may be seen with a laptop logged on to WP. I think I can draw you at this point😎
    As always, I enjoyed reading your answers.❤

    1. I didn’t know you could draw. It seems like everyone on WP is so talented. Cool, yet intimidating.
      I’m glad I didn’t live up to your answer expectations?

  4. Just saw this! I loved your thoughtful response after some contemplation ‘Eternal Life’, you got a good point! & SPOT ON with all the questions you answered from Sim. Tiger!!! Yes! I wanted to be called ‘Sam’ as a kid because of the show ‘Bewitched’, her name was Samantha (Sam)!!:)

    Thank you for the Nomination as well! 😀 Excited for this one.
