Sunshine Blogger Award, award to bloggers, getting to know bloggers, 11 questions for bloggers, gratitude, appreciation

Sunshine Bloggers Award

Well, for a second time I have been nominated for the Sunshine Bloggers Award. Last time, I answered this on my BlackAnt blog, so this time I will respond from here – where I have my political posts as well as my attempts at writing fiction and short stories!

The rules

This is really quite simple: first, I thank the person that nominated me, and then I nominate and pass on the award to 11 bloggers that I consider fit the criteria. This is a fantastic way that we recognise bloggers who may otherwise fly under the radar, unnoticed.

Additionally, the person that nominated me has given me 11 questions to answer, which I will do below. I will then come up with 11 questions that those nominated by me are to complete and post when they nominate their bloggers!

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blogging site.
  2. List the Sunshine Blogger Award rules and display the logo on your site
  3. Answer the Sunshine Blogger Award questions.
  4. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  5. Notify the nominees about their nominations

Gratitude & Appreciation

I want to acknowledge and say a big thank you to Mari for considering and nominating me for this award! I hope you will check out her blog and share with others one of her posts that inspires you.

  1. Mari the Illustrious, I am Mari. You can see her nomination & response here: https://i–am–

The Questions:

  1. What’s your favourite film of all time?  Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring
  2. Do you like cold drinks or warm drinks?  Without a doubt, hot drinks. You will always find water on my desk (room temperature) and hot cocoa. That’s my go-to when I am writing.
  3. Is summer or spring better? I love spring – I’m allergic to daffodils and possibly other pollens, but I love spring!
  4. What are you watching on Netflix right now? I am re-watching the 5 seasons of Ertugrul, a Turkish series that takes place in the 1300s. I am fascinated by the culture, the religions and the history.
  5. Any road trip tips? If you are travelling for days on end, then make every third day a rest day. Stay somewhere and just do short trips. The actual travel days, make sure that you pick picturesque places to stop to eat, walk and rest your legs!
  6. What’s your favourite song right now? On repeat like crazy. Disturbed – the Sound of Silence 
  7. Do you think being single is abnormal? Not at all.
  8. How long are your creative hours? Do you use a time block or do you just do blogging/writing whenever you feel like it? I have all kinds of crazy hours – for example, today I woke up at 3.20 a.m. and wrote for a couple of hours. But other days I will write normal working hours.
  9. Make it pink or blue? Blue.
  10. How would you prepare for a zombie apocalypse? Full on prepper – food, water & weapons!
  11. Cold weather or warm weather?  Definitely warmer, although there’s nothing like cold weather and a little bit of snow skiing!
