The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to “bloggers who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”. Or so I’m told. The awesome, amazing, astounding, and always adorable “Authentically Aurora” nominated me for this award a few days ago, and I am pleased to accept. Thank you, Aurora, from the bottom of my heart.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Answer the questions from the person who has nominated you
- Nominate 11 other bloggers for this award
- Write the same number of questions for the bloggers you have nominated
- Notify the bloggers you nominated
On Sunday I accepted the award, thanked Aurora (as I have just done again), and answered her eleven questions. Today I am going to nominate eight bloggers. I wanted to recognize other bloggers than those I recently nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award, although each of them is worthy of the Sunshine Blogger Award as well.
Here are my nominees:
https://depressionistheenemy.com/ who has many thoughtful posts on a number of topics (including mental health issues, as the name suggests);
Tricia at https://freedomthroughempowerment.wordpress.com/ who also has great insight into life;
SLIMJIM at https://veritasdomain.wordpress.com/ whose posts on the Bible and Christian living are both readable and helpful;
Mary O Green at https://threemeangreens.com/ who hasn’t posted in a few months—I hope she will start again soon!;
Sweet aroma at https://onetahayes.com/ who is recovering from a bad fall (literally and figuratively) and I hope she gets better quickly;
A Christian Worldview of Fiction at https://rebeccaluellamiller.wordpress.com/ which includes far more than you might expect from the title;
Citizen Tom at https://citizentom.com/ whose political insights are always valuable;
and Makayla at https://scrubsandstuff.wordpress.com/ who posts a reading each day from “The Message,” a broad paraphrase of the Bible. I don’t recommend such paraphrases for serious Bible study, but it is fascinating to see a new spin on familiar verses. I recommend this blog to all of you.
And here are eight questions for each of you (although I would welcome answers to these questions from any other readers as well):
Why did you decide to create your blog?
What kind of reader are you imagining as you write a post?
Which of your posts is your favorite?
For what are you most thankful?
What is your favorite memory from childhood?
If you could enroll in exactly one class for the next year, what would you choose to study?
If you won or inherited millions of dollars, what is the first thing you would buy?
What do you hope you will be doing ten years from today?
I am looking forward to reading your answers. J.
