Sunshine Blogger Award

I am the most humbled I have ever been in my life. The support from the blogging community has been amazing. I have to say a massive, massive THANK YOU to Nicole Carman-Navigating Darkness. She is so sweet, kind and extremely thoughtful for nominating me. Nicole writes amazing posts about looking after your mental health. I have to say her posts have helped me through some tough times when I have been ill, and just felt a bit down by it.

So far on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, I have interacted with some very talented people in the blogging, vlogging, and creative community. I don't think these people realise what an impact they have on my life, and how they have inspired me not just to write better, but live life in a better way. The support has been life changing and wonderful.

Many people think that us bloggers just sit here, write a few words, and that's it. I spend sometimes until early hours of the morning, planning, and brainstorming ideas for new blog posts. All us bloggers spend time writing, thinking up creative ideas, taking pictures, obtaining products, and the hardest bit is making a blog post that is readable and attractive to readers.

The Sunshine Bloggers Award is peer recognition by your peers. Once again, I can't thank Nicole- Navigating Darkness for this. It has made me feel amazing. It will make other bloggers feel amazing too. It lets all the other bloggers know the impact they are having on their peers.

If you are nominated for the Sunshine Bloggers Award there are some rules to follow:

  • You must thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog.
  • Display the Sunshine Blogger Logo in your blog post on your blog.
  • List the rules in your blog.
  • Answer 11 questions that are provided to you by the blogger whose nominated you.
  • nominate 11 bloggers.
  • Give your 11 bloggers 11 questions (they have to be different to the ones you answered.

1) How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for 2 weeks and 2 days. I have been planing content for ages though!

2) What is your favourite book? Why is this particular book your favourite?
My favourite book is Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I saw the movie first, but the movie is nothing like the book. The reason Jurassic Park is my favourite book because Michael Crichton makes the characters so relatable and, this world full of dinosaurs so immersive. You feel like you are in the book, with the characters, on this terrifying yet great adventure.

3) What is your favourite inspirational quote?
My favourite quote is "Where there is Love, there is Life." -Gandhi- 
This quote is so true because so long as there is love, life will go on. If hate over takes, then death will prevail. Love for me always wins. I want this world to continue to blossom.

4) If you could be any animal, which one would you choose?
The animal I would choose to be is a Whale, as I could roam forever in the oceans and see all the oceans in the world. Plus have a deeper connection with the world. I know I sound stupid, but I feel whales are on another level to us, with their connection to the world around them. They can sense so much more than us.

5) What is your favourite season?
My favourite season is Autumn. I love the changing colours of Nature. I love the drop in temperature. I love Halloween, and Guy Fawkes Night. Autumn is the start of the end of a chapter, but also the beginning of a new.

6) What is one of the goals you wish to achieve with your blog?
One of my goals is to help people by brightening up there day, letting them escape for five or ten minutes into my blog and have a good chuckle.

7) If you could wake up tomorrow and do anything or go anywhere you want, what would you do or where would you go? Assume you have unlimited funds.
If I had unlimited funds I would love to go to Iceland and climb the volcano called Hekla. I have only ever seen pictures, but the views go on forever and ever. As an extra I would just love to travel Iceland.

8) Coffee or Tea
This is so simple for me, as I am a Yorkshire lass, it has to be TEA!

9) What is your favourite social media website?
I am going to be naughty and say two. Twitter, as I get to talk to you amazing creative people and readers, but also Facebook for my family who live away, and my friends who live locally or away.

10) Where do you find your blog this time next year? Double the followers and subscribers? Do you hope to be doing more collaborations with other bloggers or brands? Do you hope to be earning more money?
I see my blog with hopefully 50-100 subscribes  and 50-100 followers, that would be wonderful, if my blog was like this next year. I hope to collaborate with other bloggers, and I have some plans in the pipework to collaborate with others. I would love to work with brands. I need to learn to put myself out there more. I would be grateful to earn money, but I am happy to have found myself again. I had a heart attack and other major heart issues and I lost myself slightly, writing and spending time finding myself again has helped. So earning from the blog would be a bonus, but I am grateful for what has happened so far.

11) If you could win a lifetime supply of any household item, what would it be?
The one item I would love to win for my household is toilet roll, as my partner and mother both complain that I use too much! HAHA!
