The Awards Keep Coming

I have been slacking on the blogging as of late. I've been focused on a few things I can't seem to figure out with my blog and have been obsessing on how to make them just right instead of writing.

I really can't wait to get these things taken care of so I can stop stressing about them and get back to blogging.

But in the meantime, I'm super happy to be nominated for THREE awards - The One Lovely Blog Award, The Liebster Award and The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award. I really appreciate being nominated and having something to take my mind off of my blog frustrations.

So let's get started! 

The One Lovely Blog Award

Rules for Accepting the One Lovely Blog Award:

1) Thank the person who nominated you for the award

2) Add the One Lovely Blog badge to your post

3) Share seven facts about yourself

4) Nominate about 15 bloggers you admire by posting a comment on their blog (I'm doing 7 because I have lots o' nominatin' to do)

I was actually nominated twice for this, once by Jamie and again by Leslie. Thank you ladies very much!

7 facts:

1. I love sugar. I will never be one of those who cuts it out their diet.

2. My eyes are hazel/green. I do wear contacts though because I'm blind as a bat.

9. What is your bedtime routine? Take out my contacts. Go back and forth from the bathroom to the bedroom trying to find my glasses. Yell at everyone to help me find them. Tell myself that next time I'll grab glasses then take out contacts. Get in the bed and stare at my phone for the next 30 minutes while the husband and I "try" to find a show to watch. Give up and go to bed. Wake up an hour later to my son screaming.

2. Answer the 10 questions sent to you

3. Make up 10 new questions for your nominees to answer

4. Nominate 8 other bloggers, link them in your post and notify them of their nomination

Thank you so much Irion!

10 questions:

1. How long have you been blogging? I wrote my first blog post in December for Huffington. It was accepted in February which is when I started my blog site. But I've always loved writing.

2. What are your long term goals for your blog? I would love for it to get to the point of almost self-sustaining. I'm doing a great deal of work on the back end and I can't wait to get to the point where I don't worry about that anymore, I can just write.

3. What do you love about blogging? Recently, I am loving the networking. It's so fun to "meet" new bloggers. I hope I can actually meet some of them face to face at some point.

4. And what do you hate, or at least just dislike? Ugh, the IT stuff! I am not techy and I'm spending SO much time trying to fix things.

5. Do you have children and do they influence your blog? Yes, 4. And yes, they do. The tween actually started contributing to my blog.

6.What is one thing you have learned about blogging that you never would have thought of before hand? That networking helps grow your followers and helps your numbers. I kind of fell into the networking group that I'm in and I would be pretty frustrated at this point had I not had found them.

7. What are your hobbies outside of your blog? Relaxing and watching tv.

8. Are there any bloggers that you aspire to be like? Obviously, our niches are different but I think the Daddy Doin' Work blog is awesome. Doyin is putting dads out there and they are getting the recognition they deserve. He seems like a down to earth guy and I like that about him.

9. How do you juggle being a mom along with all of your other roles? Very carefully.

10. Tell me one thing about yourself that most of your readers do not know. I gave my brother an authentic baseball signed by Willie Mays. I worked at pharmacy that provided meds for a baseball team that practiced in Arizona. One day I took a call from the manager requesting refills and I asked if he would get me a signed baseball and he did.

I'm going to use Irion's questions. I think they are really good ones.

  1. How long have you been blogging?
  2. What are your long term goals for your blog?
  3. What do you love about blogging?
  4. And what do you hate, or at least just dislike?
  5. Do you have children and do they influence your blog?
  6. What is one thing you have learned about blogging that you never would have thought of before hand?
  7. What are your hobbies outside of your blog?
  8. Are there any bloggers that you aspire to be like?
  9. How do you juggle being a mom along with all of your other roles?
  10. Tell me one thing about yourself that most of your readers do not know
