Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Award

(Because people actually read my nonsense and everyone is awesome. I love you all.)

Thank you so much Not Another Tall Blog for nominating me for this award! I’m so grateful <3 She’s awesome and funny so check her out!!

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Here are the five rules to follow:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.

2. Put the Award logo on your blog.

3. Answer the ten questions sent to you.

4. Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Nominate seven blogs.

My Answers:

1. How long have you been blogging for?

Since this past August. Almost 6 months I guess… (You can read my first-ever post here.)

2. As trivial as this may sound, why do you blog?

Because talking to myself was getting weird and unfulfilling haha. But also because I wanted to for a while and my dad said I’d never do it, so I was all, “Fuck you, I’m totally doing it.” And now here we are.

3. Is there anything in particular that you would like to achieve with your blog?

Maybe some networking and hopefully more people reading it. But mostly just being able to write somewhere other than my journal and making new friends which has been probably the best part of this whole experience.

4. Do you “do” blogger awards? If yes, what do they mean to you? If not, why not?

I did one before (read it here), and I keep getting nominated for another one but I haven’t written the post yet because I’m a terrible procrastinator. But I think awards are really awesome and a great way to support each other in the blogging world. It’s always nice to get praise or recognition for your work, and even if it’s small, it feels good to know someone likes what you’re doing. I’m always grateful for the nominations. :)

5. Is there anything that your followers don’t know about you, which you would really like them to know?

I’m not sure if there’s anything they don’t know about me (that I’d want to share). Maybe only that they’re awesome and I truly appreciate every follow, like, and comment. Even if I don’t always respond or if I don’t post for a while, I appreciate all of you guys and I’m glad you’ve stuck around for all my bullshit. <3

6. What does the “sisterhood” cause mean to you?

Well, my mind immediately jumps to traveling pants, but I’d say a group of badass ladies who support each other. Solidarity and feminism an all that. Lol.

7. Can you share with other bloggers a good practice that works well for you (e.g., a “tip”)?

I think the best thing is networking any way you can. Twitter, Facebook, whatever. Anything that will get out your site and allow you to interact with other bloggers. That’s important, too. You’ve gotta communicate with your readers.

8. Is there anything that you are particularly proud of as a blogger?

Probably getting interviewed on Opticynicism. That was a fun experience and they’re cool people.

9. Do you tend to read other blogs, or do you prefer to concentrate just on maintaining yours?

I try to read as many as possible and always try to check out my followers to see what they’re writing. It sucks because I don’t always have the time to do it or to read all the people I want but if I have the time, I’ll read as many as I can.

10. Does blogging require any sacrifices from you?

Maybe a little bit of my time but it’s not really a sacrifice. I love doing this and I’d totally do it all day if I could. I wish I could share my blog with more people I know in real life, but I don’t want to offend anyone or let my grandmom see my terrible cursing haha.

My Questions For The Nominees:

1. How you feeling today? What’s new in your life?

2. What’s your favorite thing to write/blog about?

3. Is there anything you wish you could write about but you can’t because of propriety or other stuff like that?

4. What’s your “life’s dream”? Like, if you could achieve or do ANYTHING in the world, what would it be?

5. What would you want to achieve with your blog, if anything?

6. Why did you start blogging in the first place?

7. Have you ever been in love? If so, tell your story. If not, describe your perfect love-scenario.

8. What are some of your favorite posts of all time?

9. What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about blogging?

10. What made you want to write? (And by that I mean any type of writing, not just blogging or whatever.)

You Guys Are Lovely, And I Love You All.

(Seriously. You’re amazing. I’d kiss every one of you if I could “Blue Skadoo” into the internet. Get to work, science.)

So, I was nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by 3 amazing people: Fits of Wit, Refractory Ramblings From The Darkside, and Serpentine is Here. Follow them now. Like, right now. Don’t make me come to your house and kill you. (Just kidding. You know I love you. Just to be safe, though…)

They’re all wonderful and very different blogs, but they share one common thing: they like me. As far as I’m concerned, that makes you a hero. Seriously though, they’re all great writers and fascinating people who make me laugh, cry, or just see life from a whole new perspective.

I’m relatively new to the blogging game, but everyone has been so awesome and welcoming. You guys have no idea how your words touch me and brighten my day. I really am grateful to have found like-minded people here who wanna talk, give me advice, or just say “hey”. Thank you all for your kind, inspiring, and hilarious words, and thank you for reading this. If you ever meet me in real life and need anything, I’m totally here for you. Thanks again to my wonderful nominators (Fits of Wit, Refractory Ramblings From The Darkside, and Serpentine is Here)!! You guys are amazing <3

Here Are The Rules:

1. You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.

2. You must list the rules.

3. You must add 7 facts about yourself.

4. You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.

5. You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

7 Facts About Me:

1. My hair is so long that I have to tie it up to go to the bathroom.

2. I’ve only been to 4 different states outside Pennsylvania (where I live): Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Delaware (also technically New York, but only because I went to New York City for the day which I don’t actually count).

3. I’ve been keeping journals since I was about 6 years old, but one time in 8th grade, I had this crazy freak-out renaissance-thing where I burned all my old journals in a glorious blaze and was re-born from the ashes. (I thought that if I started writing more like an adult who had their shit together, my life would follow suit. I was wrong… I pretty much went back to nonsense after a few months.)

4. I was engaged when I was 18 years old because teenagers are really smart…

5. My entire family is from South Jersey, right outside of Philadelphia, and my parents were both one of 6 children so my family is huge. I feel bad because I don’t go to see them even close to as much as I should, but only because I hate driving for that long. (Not even a good excuse.)

6. I was recently(ish) diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. I don’t totally understand it yet, but it scares the Hell out of me.

7. I might be an alcoholic (you’ve probably noticed), but I prefer the term “alcohol enthusiast” because I’m not ready to deal with it yet. Lol.

Here are the blogs I’m nominating. I follow so many amazing blogs, and I’d love to nominate so many of them, but these are just some of my favorites, my friends, or some that I really enjoy. If you nominated me, you won’t be on here, but you totally would be if you hadn’t hit me up first. :)
