I got my first blogging award y’all! I’m very pleased indeed. Sometimes when you’re a blogger it can pretty much seem as though you are talking to yourself. I don’t have a problem with that. In fact, sometimes I answer back lol. Still, it’s ice to know somebody is paying attention. Anyway, I’ve received a Sunshine Blogger Award from my cyber friend Quanie Miller of Quanie Talks Writing. Check out her blog here for great blogging information, author features and all around fun! The Sunshine Blogging Award is passed on by bloggers to other bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” One part of accepting the award is answering questions about yourself, which is great because I am one of my favorite subjects. So here goes!
When did you start your blog and why?
I started my blog on October 16, 2013. I’m a newbie! You can read my very first post here.
Was there ever a time you thought about giving your blog up? Why or why not?
I have not thought about giving up yet. I’m new to the blogging game though, so I’m sure that day will come. When it does, I plan to ignore it. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
If you could give any word of advice to writers/bloggers, what would it be?
Write about what you are interested in and what you would like to know more about it. Blogging is a big commitment and it requires a lot of research. If you are interested in your subject matter, it becomes so much easier. I love learning and sharing and I hope I can eventually use my blog to build a community of writers encouraging and motivating each other.
What’s something people would be surprised to know about you?
I have a hair obsession. It monopolizes a great deal of my time. As soon as I finish this post I am perusing YouTube for inspiration on what kind of ‘doo’ I want for Thanksgiving.
If you lived your life without fear what’s the one thing you would do?
Go camping; it seems so peaceful and inspiring. But I’m terrified of animals. Which is weird because they LOVE me. It makes for some very uncomfortable situations.
What advice would you give to a younger you?
Pursue your passion of writing with all your heart. Don’t wait and don’t let everyday life distract you. Oh, and stop trying to pretend you’re normal. It’s overrated.
Let’s say your life is a movie and you had to write the log line. What would it be?
Wow, this is a hard one. I guess it would be, “Is She For Real?” I’m a bit of a hot mess. I’m never bored though.
What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
Hit the snooze button. I am sooooo not a morning person.
What’s your favorite inspirational quote?
“What other people think of me is none of my business.” Words I live by.
If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?
Martin Luther King Jr. because he impacted the world in such a way that my very destiny as an African-American woman was forever changed before I was even born.
Thanks for reading y’all. Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to get to know you better as well! If you had to write the tag line for your life as a movie, what would it be?
