The Unique Blogger Award

unique blogger award

This past Wednesday I was nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by Lisa, thank you! ❤ 🙂 She is the author of the blog Life of an El Paso Woman. I encourage you to follow the link and check out her blog. I enjoy it, Lisa is a very cool Lady! She posts about music, Art, El Paso and has a Saturday interview feature that is always interesting.

The rules for this award are:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Include one meme and one quote you really like.
  3. Nominate 8-13 bloggers to receive this award.
  4. Ask your nominees 3 UNIQUE questions.
  5. Add a link to the awards creator. I am not sure who this person is so I am unable to do it. 😦

 

OK a meme I like:

021-FUNNY-CAT-MEME

One of my favorites quotes:

50-Inspiritational-Motivational-Thoughts-quotes-and-memes-1

The questions:

When you were 8, how would you have answered this question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I have no memory of being a child but being an artist, a writer, and helping people have always been my deepest passions.

If you could have dinner with ONE celebrity (living or dead) who would that be? Give details! I really don’t know about this one. There are too many people I would love to sit down and talk with. One person I would love to share a meal and a conversation with is Ralph Waldo Trine. His books are amazing.

Where would you live if money were not an issue? I think money should never be an issue. If you want something bad enough you make it happen. I would love to live in Ireland and am giving serious consideration to making the move.

My nominees are:
This is the most difficult part!

Terry
Suzette
Rose
Mary
Atypical Disease
C
Trina
The Bohemian Hobbit

Questions for my lovely nominees:

What was the last song that got stuck in your head?
Who inspires you most and why?
What is the most random thing you have watched on TV or the internet?

MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award questions:
What is your name? Sharon
Where are you from?  
I have lived several places in the USA. Currently I am in South Central Wisconsin
How long have you been blogging and why did you start?  
This blog is almost two years old. My other one is less than a year. I began the blog at the urging of my son. Writing has always been a big part of who I am and he thought it would be a good addition to my business. I figured life is an adventure so why not give it a go!
What are you most proud of? 
I am proud of who I’ve been because it has led me to who I am becoming. I am proud of my family’s heritage. I am proud of my son. He is the most amazing person I have ever met. I am proud and honored to be of service to humanity.
What are your blogging goals?  
Helping people be their best selves has always been my focus. Writing has always been something I am pretty good at. So I would like this blog to be a place where people can come and find something that resonates them. Something that will enable them to heal, grow and become the best version of themselves that they can be. I would like it to continue to grow. The more it grow the more people I can reach.
How do you spend your free time? I work! When I am not working, I am probably thinking about work. But I design and make jewelry (working), read (at the moment I am in the process of reading 3 books) and spend time in the woods near my home. I have, as many of you know, a thing about trees!

My Lovely Nominees: 
This is the part I really struggle with. I follow you all because I am impressed with your blog and what you have to say. If your blog is not on this list, please know that I do appreciate you.

An Award!

BRA

Lisa, from Life of an El Paso Woman has very kindly nominated me for the Blogger Recognition Award. I am honored to be nominated. They are a great way to get to know fellow bloggers. Lisa’s blog can be found here. Check it out, I enjoy it and I am sure you will also.

There are rules, of course!

  • Explain how and why you started blogging
  • Offer advice to new bloggers
  • Nominate bloggers for the award

How and why did I start blogging?
I started blogging at the urging of my son. He thought it would be a good way to help build my business. I wasn’t sure that I had anything to say that anyone would want to read but I figured, life is an adventure why not give it a go. It will be two years in October and I can honestly say it’s been an enjoyable experience. I have met some wonderful people and read some truly talented writers.

What advice would I offer?

  • Stick with it. The first few weeks or months are slow going but it will get better as people find you.
  • Networking is important. Take part in the meet and greets that are available. They are a great way to meet and follow other blogs and for them to find you.
  • Blog about what excites you. If you are passionate about it then chances are other people will be as well.
  • Be who you are.
  • Spell check is your friend!
  • Read, like and comment to the bloggers following you as much as you can. They will do the same.
  • Try to be consistent with posting so your followers know when you will have something new up.

Who to nominate!

As always if you choose not to participate that is perfectly alright, and, if any reader not nominated that would like to have a go, please feel free, I would love to read about how you got started and what tips you have!

Have a great day!

The Happiness Tag

Happiness Tag

I was trying to catch up on my reading and commenting the other day and while looking through Sue’s Space I read her post about The happiness Tag and discovered that she had tagged me 🙂 How fun! If you have not been to her blog, you should check it out. Sue is pretty cool!

There are three simple rules and here they are.
List:
5 Things that make you happy.
5 Songs that make you happy.
5 Bloggers that make you happy. Let them know you nominate them and you are done.

Five things that make me happy 

  1. Sunday makes me happy because my family gets together. We share a meal, talk,  tell stories and laugh. Sunday is the best day of the week.
  2. Coffee, this was one of Father’s really good ideas!!
  3. Helping people become their best version
  4. Trees, I really love trees (I think I’ve mentioned this before. lol)

An Award How Lovely!

blogger-recognition-award_zpsxjyfyirm

While I was on my break from the blog getting organized I nominated by two amazing bloggers for the Blogger Recognition Award. I would like to thank A Momma’s View and Reading Between the Lyme for their kind nominations. It is an honor to be recognised by a fellow blogger. Please check out their blogs, you will enjoy them.

Here is the list of  rules:

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you.
  • Give a brief story of how your blog got started.
  • Give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers.
  • Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog.
  • Make sure to also attach the award itself! Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created.

How I got started?
My son is the one that got me started blogging a little over a year and a half ago. I have to admit that this is something I would not have thought of on my own, He suggested it because he thought it would be a good addition to my business. I wasn’t sure I had anything to say that people would find interesting but I gave it a try. I have enjoyed blogging a great deal.

Advice to new bloggers:
Beginning is always slow and can be disappointing but you have to stick with it. The followers will come.
Networking is a great tool to meet new bloggers.
Read and comment on blogs, chances are they will in return.
Be consistent with posts. Followers will get used to looking for posts on certain days and times.
Edit and spell check!

My nominees:
This is the part I have the biggest difficulty with, so I am going to leave this open. If you have read this far into the post, consider yourself nominated. 🙂

  • Decaf coffee, what’s the point? I’m struggling here 🙂
  • ??? UMMMM No idea,

The rules are as follows:

  1. Thank the blogger that nominated you.
  2. Award 5 bloggers who fascinate, intrigue or tickle your curiosity with the Room 101 (award) badge logo on their About pages and linking to them in your post.

Have fun!!
