As you know from my previous post, Stephanie over at Making Time For Me nominated me for the Black Cat Blue Sea Award. I am honored to accept.
It took a little digging for me to find the actual rules for this little award. The rules are as follows:
“Anybody nominated, can nominate seven (lucky number) other bloggers. Anybody nominated answers three questions. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions. If any of the questions asked are offending or simply do not want to be answered, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.
“This award is for bloggers who strives to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it and it doesn’t mean that they must have hundreds of followers and likes.”
Who was the first blog / blogger you heard of / read and did they inspire you to start?
This one is easy. I never heard of blogging until my Cordelia started her blog, Cordelia Calls It Quits, and then she encouraged me to write posts for her site. I had my own sub-blog entitled Cordelia’s Mom Is Still Hanging In There. Subsequently, I decide to spin off and start my own blog. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Do you see Blogging as a future career or just a side hobby?
Like pretty much every other blogger, I would LOVE to have blogging turn into a future career. Alas, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen any time soon, so I guess I’ll just keep enjoying it as a side hobby. However, that does not mean that I won’t keep hoping to be discovered by one of the major publishing houses and asked to write the next block-buster novel.
What is your all time favorite Album and Why?, How does it make you feel to listen to it?
This one is tough, because I’m really not a music person. I only listen to CDs in my car (that’s right -CD’s, I don’t even use an iPod!). Depending on my mood, I listen to Neil Diamond, Simon & Garfunkel, classic or jazz. If I’m in a playful mood, I listen to 1980s funky music – and if I’m feeling a little dark, I listen to Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Beethoven’s Last Night. And, of course, at Christmas time, it’s Trans-Siberian Orchestra all the way.
Because I’m lazy, I’m going to use the same three question I answered. My nominations are listed below. There is no obligation to participate – consider this my way of honoring you. If you are nominated and do choose to participate, answer the three questions listed above (and which I answered!), and nominate up to 7 other bloggers. My choices (drum roll, please) are:
