I never thought I’d be nominated for blogger awards at all, let alone within the first month of me blogging but here we are!  I was recently nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award and if ya don’t know what it is let me share:

The Sunshine Blogger Award is about the blogging community and gives insight to the amazing people within the community.

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog so others can find them.
  2. Answer the 11 questions which the blogger who nominated you asked.
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 different questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post and/or on your blog site.

I was nominated by two bloggers in a short space of time so I decided why not show love to both of them for nominating me.  

I chose five questions from their lists to answer (I put their initial by their question).  There was one question that they both asked so that one is the 11th question.

Thank you, Emily and Mel, for nominating me and for nominating the other bloggers as well.  Clicking their names will take you to their Sunshine Blogger Award post.

I hope you guys enjoy my answers and read through to see who I’ve nominated!

  1. How do you come up with your blog post ideas? What’s your process? (E)
    I begin with the analog method of writing down a ton of ideas per blog category.  I transfer the ones that are most feasible for me to attack or most relevant to the month/season to a very complicated digital process.  It works.
  2. What is your preferred social media for blogging? What about for personal use? (E)
    Instagram is key because it’s visual but I really hate their algorithm.  Twitter is my preference because I feel it gets more real over there.   Facebook who?
  3. If you could only be one age for the rest of your life, what age would you choose? (M)
    I always want to be 30, flirty and thriving.  It was the best year of my life, come back.
  4. If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be? (E)
    Grow your fro even bigger – it will solve all the problems.
  5. What is the most annoying question people ask you? (M)
    You’re so cool, why don’t you just magically have the life I want for you even though I know things are tough for you right now and I’m not offering any financial help or resources to assist you with obtaining said life but you’re so cool and why?
  6. What’s your favourite feeling? (E)
    I really enjoy the feeling when I’m seriously not giving a fuck – especially when people ask me that annoying question…
  7. What could you give a presentation on with zero preparation?  (M)
    How to be a unicorn princess from the planet Mars and sparkle in the midst of darkness
  8. The Number One Rule that you live by, go!  (M)
    I live by the rule of me; Olli comes first.  In my past I put everyone first, I gave so much for others and I have zero to show for it.   Now when my life is hard and everyone is living well, no one is helping me.  So I live by the rule of me and I’ll still be helpful, but I’m putting myself first.
  9. List three TV shows that you would gladly watch over and over (E)
    I actually do watch these over and over: Star Trek Voyager (It’s really annoying knowing they could go home if they would stop exploring every little thing), The Good Wife (Khalinda so fine) and Death Note – I know it’s Anime but it’s well thought out.
  10. When was the last time you changed your belief/opinion on something? What was it?  (M)
    I am actually starting to question everything around me.  Are we real? What is the purpose? I can’t stay in one state of mind.
  11. Why did you start blogging? Why do you continue? (E) / What is the reason that you originally started your blog? (M)
    You can read the reasons why I started a blog (esp considering there are a ton of lifestyle blogs out there) but basically, I have a lot to say, I wanted to try something new and cause I can.  BAM.  I continue to blog because it really is bringing structure into my life.

Who did I nominate?  I choose a few people who I connect with regularly, but the majority of the people I nominated are people I’ve been watching (not stalking, not stalking!) and enjoying their hustle.

I chose the following bloggers because I enjoy their energy online.  I could have easily chosen people who I interact with regularly but I decided to connect with a new group, people who I see from time to time online but I might not connect with as regularly as others.

    That’s a hard question because I haven’t thought about it really. Hmm… I guess I would go with kindness and honesty. In life I try to be as honest as possible first to myself (still getting there but it is fun to get to know my real self 🙂 ) and that gives me strength so I can be kind! I try to at least, not always perfect. And those are the two things I wish other people were more interested in as well. 🙂

    Great post and thank you for the tag! The number one rule which I live my life by is kind of a two part rule. Life is beautiful so I always try to remain positive and kind ,whilst trying my best to treat others how I want to be treated. As not everyone deserves your kindness but I learning not to take things personally 😂.
