The Sunshine Blogger Award
How exciting! A little while back I was nominated for a Sunshine Blogger Award. My very first blogging award. If you're wondering what that is - its an award given by fellow bloggers given in recognition of whose blogs are positive, creative and inspiring. So a big thank you to Nancy Mulligan for nominating me!
The award encompasses answering 11 questions from your nominator and nominating 11 other bloggers and giving them a further 11 questions. Its a great way to get to know other bloggers better.
Here are the rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you in your blog post and link back to her/his blog.
Answer 11 questions that the blogger asked you.
Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the awards and write them 11 questions.
List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post on your blog.
Now that that's out of the way, here's the answers to my questions...
What motivated you to start blogging?
God! I was thinking about all the great things God has done for me and that I have seen in my life. I wanted a platform to share and blogging appealed to me, as I could reach a potential large audience as well as share the stories with my friends/families
What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I would like to do more textile art. It takes time, space and money to produce but I really enjoy it.
What fictional place would you most like to go?
Are you usually early or late?
What are some small things that make your day better?
Being appreciated, coffee, blue skies
What is one of your favourite smells?
The smell of fresh laundry
What age do you wish you could permanently be?
I'll let you know when I reach the end... the best age could still be to come!
If your life was a book, what would its title be?
What’s the best thing about you?
What is the strangest thing you have come across?
Recently, After my son was gifted for his birthday, a brand new fish tank, we purchased 2 shrimps and 4 fish. A month later, we have a baby water snail too?
What is something you will NEVER do again?
Childbirth! I have my 4 sons and lots of fond memories. Whilst part of me would like to continue having children, the other part is far too tired raising the children we have!
