Me? Awards?

So I just got nominated for two awards:

 

 

 and  

I have only been blogging for a while now, and I really love WordPress. I have gotten to read writing by so many talented people out here, and I am so flattered that I have been nominated for these awards.

The Rules:

  1. Link back to the person who nominated you
  2. Display the logo
  3. Nominate 10 bloggers and let them know that they have been nominated.

These are some questions I answered:

Favorite color – Blue

Favorite animal – lion

Favorite number – 3

Favorite non-alcoholic drink – iced tea

Prefer FaceBook or Twitter – FaceBook, for sure.

My passion/s – writing, reading, playing the guitar/piano, and singing.

Prefer getting or giving presents – I will be completely honest here: getting.

Favorite pattern – Minimalistic designs. They are easily the classiest, and look good on anything for any occasion.

Favorite days of the week – Friday and Saturday, since the next day’s a holiday.

Favorite flower – This will sound very cliche, but the rose is my favorite flower.

So now, people I’d like to, in turn, nominate for these awards are:

I think you’re supposed to nominate ten, but seeing as I”m relatively new to WordPress, I couldn’t manage more than this.

I also want to nominate bloggers outside WordPress for the Sunshine Award:

because reading their stuff makes my day. Since they’re not on WordPress, I can’t nominate them for both. *sigh*

Thank you for putting such amazing work out there. I’m really happy I stumbled on to your blogs! And a special thank you to Blue Bead Publications, who nominated me. I’m flattered. I also want to mention that I don’t want you to feel compelled to pass this award on; I just wanted to show my appreciation for your blog by nominating you. Cheers!

Daily Prompt: Island of Misfit Posts

June 23, 2013

We all have something we’d like to write about, but that doesn’t really “fit” our blog. Write it anyway.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MISFIT.

The community bench is

Just another place to park this

Heavy encumbrance

That is my body,

But this is one place where I

Blend in. I don’t have to

Bring anything original

To the metaphorical table

Or pretend I like the taste of

What’s being served.

No one will ask me

Uncomfortable questions

Like

Am I happy

or How am I.

We just smile at each other

So we know we’re not alone.

On Goals and Garbling

Daily Prompt: Goals

When you started your blog, did you set any goals? Have you achieved them? Have they changed at all?
I started my blog on WordPress just 3 days ago. My goal is to start writing more and develop as a writer, and maybe get some external input and encouragement along the way.
I began blogging as a sort of bet with my friends. We all plan on writing blogs for a certain period of time. At the end of it, we’ll present each of the others with a list of around thirty different blogs, from which they have to guess which one ours is – that was the idea. So far, still sticking with it, but three days isn’t a lot. Who knows what might happen between now and then?
But, to be honest, even that’s not the truth – the bet might’ve been the final impetus to actually make it happen, but my actual goal as such was not a goal – it was my need to be heard.
I like talking, always have. I like it even better when I have an audience. It’s cathartic to talk your heart out to someone, and it’s nice being able to talk to people who will and can judge you solely on the basis of your thoughts, beliefs and expression.
So my blogging goals are basically still the same. To be able to think, write and be heard. But then, isn’t that everyone’s?
