Lots of Awards

Posted on Updated on

It’s award time. It’s time to thank some lovely bloggers and award some lovely bloggers. I do love awards. I’ve got some doubles and some bunches of awards so, so as not to strain your eyeballs I’m going to thank all the bloggers together. Huge thank yous to Billy Ray Chitwood, Donicia, John Howell, Katherine Vucicevic, Michelle, Glendon Perkins, Marian Allen, Jasveena Prabhagaran, Donicia, and JCCKeith. I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone – I’ll do another award post later. Time to party!

My Answers to my Questions:
1. How long have you been blogging?
Two years – I think.
2. Why did you choose the topic(s) for your blog?
I don’t think I have a proper topic for my blog. Originally it was going to be a place to post “diary entries” for Christopher – a character in African Me & Satellite TV.
3. How do people find your blog?
I have no idea. LOL!
4. Do you feel comfortable promoting/advertising your own stuff?
No I definitely don’t. I keep expecting someone to point at me and yell “FAKE!”.
5. What’s your happiest earliest childhood memory?
My cousins and I being forced by my mother to row her around Zoo Lake like a reclining empress. She did this often, but it was always cool because she regularly fell overboard, jammy scone in hand.
6. If you could have any critter, real or imaginary, as a pet, what would it be?
A dragon would be cool.
7. What would you name it?
Tiny.
8. Why would a woodchuck chuck wood?
Because he’s aiming it at something?
9. Vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore?
Piscatarian. Is that right? I eat seafood.
10. What are you reading (not these questions, silly! what book?)?
I’ve got more than one read on the go right now, including Pratchett’s Unseen Academicals.
11. What is your superpower?
My love of animals and the Earth.

My Questions For My Chosen Bloggers:
1. When did you start blogging?
2. What was your hope for your blog to accomplish?
3. Do you read a lot of blog posts?
4. What was your best post ever?
5. What’s your favourite thing in the world to do?
6. Describe your pets and why they’re the cutest.
7. Who’s your favourite person in the world?
8. Do you have any hobbies?
9. Do you have any habits that you’d like to get rid of?
10. What do you like to read?
11. What would be your crowning achievement in life?

My nominees for ALL these awards (extra because I know that some of you already have most of them) follow. Your blogs are brilliant!

        LOL, When I worked in Abu Dhabi some years ago, I was a member of the Scottish Society there and went to Scottish Dancing – when things like Burns Night came round, I was one of the few men who did NOT wear a kilt, (at £1000 each I couldn’t afford it), it looked as if men were outnumbered 10 to 1 LOL

      Thanks Vashti! I think it’s cool to award bunches like this – with one at a time when people already have some of the awards they have to do them over. This way they get to pick the ones they don’t have so we don’t end up stressing out out blogger family with too much love. I’m going to do collections from now on I reckon. xxx
