Well, this was not a post I was thinking that I will be doing today, but yet here it is (it also saves me of having to think of a Monday post as well). Three reasons why this is a Monday post:
I was 100% sure today was Sunday,
I feel like since it’s the end of July that this is the best way to end my most successful blogging month to date (still not viral or popular, but successful for me),
I was pleasantly surprised I got another one of these blogger awards so I had to respond to this one TODAY ( the last one I forgot to and basically it’s too late now, don’t hate me)
I was surprised this morning when I opened my blog to see a notification, I thought someone just liked my poem or something, but then I saw a comment that theceaselessreaderwrites nominated me for an award. I am beyond happy. He is one of the rare writing blogs I managed to find out there (Are we an extinct race? Is it all about beauty and travel these days?)
So, according to Okoto Enigma (okotoenigmasblog.com), the great creator of this award, the `Mystery Blogger Award‘ is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Her rules are stated below:
Put the award logo/image on your blog. (check)
List the rules. (check)
Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog. (check)
Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well. (check)
Tell your readers 3 things about yourself. (about to be done)
You have to nominate 10 – 20 people. (Don’t be mad, but I found only 7, and that is my lucky number so decided not to force it)
Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify). (done)
Share a link to your best post(s).
A lot of work so let’s get started.
3 THINGS ABOUT ME
I am a university student at the moment with a passion for writing, so I blog to make myself commit to actually doing something in my life
My dream is to one day be a published author and at the moment I am so far from that goal, but baby steps.
For some reason I really like the word “Poltergeist”
My nominees are (and this was so hard by the way since I don’t know that many writing blogs):
Elsie MC, this is a blog I have been following from the start of my blogging “career”. I read her every post, I like that she is so free and expressive in every post, she is really original 🙂
Jade LM, a fellow writer and blogger, I have been following her for a while and I follow her instagram to find out what she is doing daily.
Christine in Chicago, one of my most recent adds, she covers a lot of different topics and she has a little big for everyone.
norayarely , a recent add as well, I found her through the same taste in music ( she reviewed the Lana del Rey, HAIM and Halsey new album)
emptychairsatemptytables, she reviews books that I will probably be reading and she is a huge Harry Potter fan, what else would you need?
smellthecoffeeweb, a fellow writer that writers great poems and six word short stories
Dainelle Writes, another fellow writer and a very diverse blogger as well, I like reading her post regularly. She is also a person I was following from the start as well.
My answers to the nominators questions:
For me to continue to blog on a long-term basis it needs to just keep me satisfied, happy and above all busy. I am for the first time in my life learning to commit to something so as long as I feel a sense of commitment I will blog.
I have actually shared this in the 3 things about me but my life goal is to be a published author. Also, I would have liked to do a conceptual album but the only problem there is – I can’t sing! So if anyone needs a random lyrics generator, call me 😉
Honestly, I didn’t even know these blogger awards existed, I was very clueless about blogging in general. I stall am. So no, I did not expect any kind of award.
My top 3 goals as a blogger : keep me committed, keep me passionate about writing and help me grow as a person.
Of course alien life will be more intelligent than humans when discovered, we didn’t set the bar too high.
