In the past week or so, I’ve been given a couple more awards and have just been kind of sidetracked with everything going on around here, so I am finally sitting down to get these acknowledged.
My bloggin’ buddy, Rob, over at Weight2Lose2013 sent over a Sunshine Award (which is the only sun we’ve seen around these parts in several days!) Thank you, Rob! Big virtual hugs headed your way:
Now I get to answer the following questions:
- Why did you start your blog?
A few years ago I was blogging furiously on my photo-blog to sort of try to promote my business. Because it was for business, I found myself really filtered, so I thought it might be fun to do a “because I can say what I want” blog, Random Musings From A Type-A Workaholic was born.
- What is your favorite movie – ever?
Would you think I was lying if I were to say that I don’t actually have one? I have a few favorites, in no particular order, however: Romeo & Juliet (the original from what? 1969?), The Sound of Music, West Side Story, Titanic, and The Notebook are the handful that I can watch over and over again.
- Do you get tired of bloggin?
Nope, not really. I enjoy it quite a lot, and now that I’ve resurrected my photo blog, I feel like I’m constantly trying to stay up-to-date on both, but I don’t get tired of it. Writing and photography are my two creative outlets and really help me center myself.
- Where do you want your blog to take you to?
Oz? Seriously, I didn’t originally have an ulterior motive when I started Musings, but the more I put into it, the more I think I would like to compile a book from it just for laughs. The Bloggess and Snarky In The Suburbs have both made that transition, and I could live with that.
- What type of blogs do you find interesting?
I am really into humorous OR fitness-related OR nutrition types of blogs. Do you know what kind of a find it is to find one all wrapped up in one package?
- What is your favorite song TODAY?
Magic by Coldplay.
- If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Somewhere on a beach, as long as it’s hot and tropical. The hubs and I are really eyeballing Belize as a retirement option.
- What is your favorite creative outlet?
It’s a toss up between writing and photography. I have the opportunity to write more often, however.
- Least favorite part of your day?
You know that time when it’s too late to hit the snooze button again? That.
- What is your favorite article of clothing?
My flip-flops. Hands (or is it feet?) down…
I know I am supposed to put out a list of nominees at this point, but I want to say that the Sunshine Award was also part of the Award Foursome from some weeks back and I don’t want to hit the same people again. Besides, I also have another award (below) that asks that I nominate fourteen other bloggers, and I don’t want to hit everyone twice in a day. 😉 I know, I am a bit lazy, but as y’all are seeing, I’m doing well to keep up with the regular stuff, and hitting 14 bloggers twice for two separate awards… *whew* You know, unless you WANT to do both of them…So to my fourteen listed below under the Sisterhood award? Y’all can absolutely do this one, as well, and simply use the same questions that were given to me. 🙂 Because I don’t want to be “that blogger” that stopped the train, LOL….
Sisterhood of the World Bloggers
I love that I only need to link (and notify) 14 bloggers, because that makes it easy on the recipients, also. So the rules are to acknowledge your nominator, list your nominees, and notify them. I am going to be the lazy one that is going to copy and paste my notifications, because the morning is almost gone and my to-do list is ridiculous. 😉
In no particular order are my nominees:
Lisa at Lisa Macy Coaching
Mother Hen at The Mother Hen Diaries
Laurie at My Foray Into Food Storage
Liz over at Liz Logic
Whitney over at Well, That Happened
Cookie Cakes at Cordelia’s Mom
Ruthie over at Ruthie Rambles
Robin at Witless Dating After Fifty
Skwarl at There’s a Squirrel in My Blog
Kristin at Stamped With a Heart
So, you’ll notice some new “faces” in my list. I’ve made some new friends in the blogosphere, so make sure you pop on over and visit them, as well. And let’s be honest. You know they are good, because I don’t follow blogs that suck. 😉
Y’all may also read about this here before you see your official nomination notification in your little corners of the blogosphere. Let’s face it; it’s Sunday and I’m slow. Feel free to accept one, both, or neither. These just mean I think y’all are pretty terrific, and by putting these out there, I hope to help you increase your readership. 🙂
Until Next Time…
