Award ceremony – November 2020. Receiving and giving.

*NOMINATION NO. 5*
*THE SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD*

(See page 1 for thanks and intro.)

FROM:

Robin at Confessions of a Patchwork Momma. She is like me in the sense that she blogs about a variety of things, including her arts and crafts, her family, and mental health.

RULES:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions they posed to you.
  • Nominate new bloggers and give them questions.
  • Include these rules in your post and use the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post.

ROBIN’s QUESTIONS and MY ANSWERS:

  1. Why do you blog?
    To let my thoughts run wild, to spark a debate, to learn, to stretch my limits, to create.
  2. If you could time travel, what historical period would you like to visit and why?
    The beginning of the world so I could then tell all these people what the truth is. Oh, wait, they probably would not believe me, anyway…
  3. What is the biggest life lesson that 2020 has taught you?
    It definitely reinforced a few things – if things can get worse, chances are they will. Also – keep on fighting; you can do it! And – be flexible and open to new things.
  4. Sweet or savory?
    Sweet
  5. What is your favorite holiday and why?
    Christmas. Or at least it is the closest to a “favorite.” Why? Because of all the magic that it brings.
  6. What is the most frustrating aspect of blogging for you?
    Not getting the exposure that I would want.
  7. What do you do for exercise?
    I run, I walk, I swim, I go to the gym, I play some sports.
  8. Whatโ€™s your favorite hobby besides writing?
    Reading. Aside from that, traveling.
  9. What are your guilty pleasures if you have any?
    Mind-numbing movies/ TV-series. Sometimes our brains need to breathe, too.
  10. What character from a book or film would you like to meet?
    Superman because I bet he is in with the most powerful and could make the proper introductions.
  11. Which post have you written that we should all read? (re-using this one because it’s so good)
    It IS good. I would direct you to a list of my posts with descriptions so you can choose for yourself. I think that all of my posts need to re-read. (Change the year in the link to 2017 or 2018 for more.)

MY NOMINATION:

Beaton

MY QUESTIONS:

  1. Aside from reading/writing, what do you like to do in your spare time?
  2. What was the biggest challenge you faced this year?
  3. What do you look forward to in 2021?
  4. How do you normally spend Christmas? Will it be the same or different this year?
  5. What is your favorite feeling?

Add yours

    1. I’m not sure why you didn’t get a pingback, either… WP can be strange sometimes.

      I just wanted to show some appreciation. It’s been a pleasure knowing you all this time and gaining some insights to all sorts of different things.

  1. I rather enjoy your award posts; though I confess, their length often gets them put off for a time. Hence my surprise when I finally get to it and find my own name… Like Ruth, I didn’t receive a pingback. Though perhaps that’s really a devilish plot on your part to keep us on our toes? Well anyway, thank you very much for the tag. ๐Ÿ˜Š Though, may I ask… Why are your questions/answers put under the “Rules” heading on page 5? It’s very strange to see “Rules: Where do UFOs come from?”

    1. When it comes to awards, some people visit the nominee’s blog and announce it. I never did it, because I don’t want to push (some people don’t do them), and because I like to keep you all on your toes. However, I have always done the pingbacks so there is some sort of FYI. I have no idea why it didn’t work this time…

      As far as the length is concerned, that’s why I do pages – so you can read one page at a time and know exactly where you left off.

      Thank you for pointing out the rules snaffu. You have earned your editor’s wage this week.

      1. Well, I have been having some WordPress issues lately, so… We’ll just blame it on them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Read bit by bit, as time allows? Goldie… That would be smart. Ridiculous!

        I’ve earned my wage, eh? Excellent. I expect my payment in chocolates.

          1. Ah, wonderful! Although, I do wonder why people don’t make chocolates and the like in the shape of things where a beheading would be more desirous. Like… vampires, maybe? Because edibles in the form of, well, anything with a head, are going to get beheaded, it’s just a fact of life. And we make bunnies, and Santas, and poor, innocent, nondescript sort of people. Now what does that say about us?

            Okay… I know what it says about me. ๐Ÿ˜…

  2. I have finally responded to your tag ๐Ÿ˜‰ Go check my post out.

    I thought it was “Love after Love” Cher sang about! Am I wrong?

    If things can get worse, chances are they will – Unfortunately true

    I love your list of favorite feelings!
