This is SO late but, wow, I’ve gotten my first award! *squeal squeal squeal* It’s called The Sunshine Award and I’m so flattered to have been nominated! So, what is The Sunshine Award? Well…
The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers. The recipients of the Sunshine Award are: “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere”. The way the award works is this: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Answer questions about yourself. Select 10 of your favourite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they have been awarded the Sunshine Award!
The wonderful Will Louison nominated me, while I was reading his post about his award, I was thinking “wow, this guy is amazing, he’s gotten so many awards, I want to be like him!” And, to my great surprise, there was my blog name in the list of nominees! I literally squealed!
Thanks so much Will! You can check his blog: What If It All Means Something, HERE. You should really check out his stuff, he’s not only funny, but amazingly talented and I love his writing!
So, back to the award *squeal*, there are some rules:
1. you answer the ten questions below
2. you nominate ten further people to accept this award
So, let’s go!
What inspired you to start blogging?
Well, I’ve always had a love for writing and wanted to get some of my work out there in a friendly environment. It’s been amazing so far.
How did you come up with the name to your blog?
My favorite animal is a monkey and I write, so that’s where it came from.
What is your favorite blog you like to read?
There are way too many, but if I had to choose, I would say Sage Doyle’s blog. Her poems capture so much emotion and her writing is so vivid and… well, I probably should stop talking or I’ll ramble on forever! I love every blog so much but hers is one that stands out the most to me.
Tell about your dream job.
Oh decisions, decisions! My number one choice is to be a famous author! I just want to be able to check out my book from the library down the street, then I’ll be happy. Not too crazy, but it suits me.
Is your glass half full or half empty?
Mine is overflowing! Optimism is the key, as I like to say.
If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?
To the pink lake in Australia! The lake is pink! Who wouldn’t want to go there?
What food can you absolutely not eat?
Any spicy foods, my spice level tolerance is very low. But it’s gotten better over the years!
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Both! As long as it’s chocolate, I’ll eat it!
How much time do you spend blogging?
Yikes, the dreaded question. For the past few weeks, I haven’t been able to blog very much, so about 3-4 hours each week…? I know, I know, it’s bad. I usually like to spend at least an hour blogging a day though.
Do you watch tv- if so, what are some of your favorite shows?
My favorite shows… currently, Bones (fangirl squeal here) and Danny Phantom (who knew a cartoon character could be so cute?!).
Now, the ten awesome blogs I nominate for The Sunshine Award!
