A few months ago (five!), I was nominated for the Liebster, Sunshine, and Versatile Blogger awards by several bloggers. I’m honored by the nominations and I promise I wasn’t ignoring you, my blogger friends.
Each award required me to nominate other bloggers with a certain amount of followers, which is to help promote their blogs. However, at the time, I had no idea how to find out that information! It was quite recently that I discovered how to find out the number of followers bloggers had. Yay! Then I also discovered how cumbersome it was within WordPress to check those numbers. ~Sigh~ The task was added to my weekly blogging task checklist, and I began slowly checking the numbers as time allowed. As I gathered the information and visited each blogger’s site, I found there are many ‘award-free’ bloggers and most of the bloggers I follow have already been nominated for the same awards many times over. Okay. Back to the drawing board.
I’m grateful for the opportunities provided me as I embarked upon this journey almost one year ago. So, I thought I’d at least answer some of the questions from the awards nominations so you, dear Reader, can get to know me a little better (or be lulled to sleep). There were a lot of questions, so this will be a two-parter.
