Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award #3

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

Thank you so much to Megan from meganelizabethmorales for nominating me for this award for my third time. I truly appreciate it and apologize for having taken so long to get to this. And if you haven’t yet, please check out her blog and support her attempt to spread awareness about epilepsy. Anyway, for this award:

The rules:

1) Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.

2) Answer the questions the nominator has provided.

3) Nominate 10 other bloggers.

4) Create 10 questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

The questions…

1. What made you start blogging?

As a self-published author, I was trying to get myself out there more, besides just creating a social media presence.

2. What is your favorite show?

I don’t have just one show. There are quite a few shows I watch regularly, such as Doctor Who, Big Bang Theory, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, Bones, Sherlock, and CSI.

3. Do you prefer spicy or non-spicy food?

I like a mild to medium spicy food on occasion. But unfortunately though I may like spicy food, spicy food doesn’t seem to like me much anymore.

4. Do you have a favourite song at the moment?

No one favorite song at the moment. There are just so many songs I enjoy, in different genres, that I can’t just pick one.

5. Are you a Marvel, or DC fan? Or both?

I enjoy both

6. What’s your favorite book?

Again, I love so many that I can’t pick one. I love Harry Potter, The Dresden Files, Sherlock, Agatha Christie, Count of Monte Cristo, Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, Lord of the Rings, …

7. Do you have a favourite colour?

Purple!

8. Do you read fanfiction?

Not so much. I did dabble in writing a little anime fanfiction a few years ago for fun, but didn’t stick with it.

9. Would you rather sit down and be on the computer 24 hours a day, or go outside and get sunburn?

Outside. I love spending time outside, and wish I could do it more.

10. Do you automatically connect to the fangirl memes, and say, “HEY, THAT’S ME!” Or just stare at it and wonder why you understand all of those fandom’s quotes and hairstyles…

A little of both, I think

The questions for my nominees:

1. Are you a morning person?

2. What was your favorite tv show as a kid?

3. Do you consider yourself a geek?

4. Are you a cat person or dog person?

5. Do you listen to music when you’re working on a project?

6. Who are some of your favorite authors?

7. What is one place you would like to visit if you could?

8. Do you enjoy doing things outdoors (nature walks, camping, etc.)?

9. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

10.  Do you believe in ghosts?

Since there are so many great blogs out there to choose from, I will just nominate anyone reading this who would like to accept it and go for it.

The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award #2

sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award

Many thanks to Natacha Guyot from Science Fiction, Transmedia & Fandom for nominating me for this award. I am honored and truly appreciate it 🙂

 There are four rules:

  1. Say “Thank You” to the person who nominated you & link their blog to your post.
  2. Answer the 10 questions given to you.
  3. Pass the award on to 7 other bloggers and let them know they have been nominated.
  4. Include the Award Badge in your post.

My answers:

  1. What are you currently reading?
    I’m currently in the process of re-reading both Harry Potter and The Dresden Files for now, though I have a huge stack of books still waiting to be read. I’ll probably get around to one of them shortly. 
  2. Do you enjoy crafty hobbies?
    I dabble in making jewelry
  3. What is one of your favorite foods?
    Just one? Cheesecake, though I rarely turn down Chinese food and anything chocolate
  4. What movie are you most looking forward to in 2015?
    The new Avengers movie, which I saw a couple weeks ago for my birthday
  5. What brought you to blogging?
    It was an effort to get myself out on social media and all, since I’m fairly new to the indie author thing.
  6. Do you like poetry?
    I enjoy reading poetry, but I don’t really write it much. My writing muse seems to give me ideas for stories more than for poems.
  7. Do you have a favored computer brand?
    Whichever works and will let me do what I need.
  8. What is the one software you couldn’t live without?
    A word processor.
  9. What book(s) from your childhood left a most significant impression?
    I don’t know about leaving a significant impression, but some of my favorites were Nancy Drew, James Howe’s Bunnicula books, and the Pern books (which helped get me into fantasy novels).
  10. Do you like notebooks?
    I take one with me to work every day in case I have time to write on lunch or have an idea to jot down 🙂

liebster4

 

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award! Wow! How unexpected this is!  Thank you so much to http://mommyx4boys.wordpress.com for the nomination. I truly appreciate it. This is my first award here on WordPress, since I’m relatively new here.

Okay, now, let’s see…

The rules for this award are…

1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award
2. Display the banner/sticker/logo on your blog
3. Answer the questions the award giver asked
4. List 11 facts about yourself
5. List your nominees

 

The questions I’ve been given:

1. If you had one wish what would it be?

– Only one wish? Well, I’d love to be a relatively famous author, with a contract with a big publisher 😀

2. If you could change one law, what would it be and why?

-probably repeal “ObamaCare”. I understand the motivations, but I’ve always thought it was silly to force people to pay for insurance when a lot of people still can’t afford it thanks to the bad economy, and it hasn’t really worked out like “they” had hoped it would.

3. What is your favorite movie?

-Oh, I have a lot of movies I love. Casablanca, The Princess Bride, My Cousin Vinny, Monty Python and Holy Grail, Lord of the Rings, Ghostbusters, etc.

4. What is your dream job?

-full-time author 🙂 or something where I can work with animals, probably. cat behaviorist might be interesting.

5. If you could travel to a different time period, when would it be?

-I’ve always been fascinated with Ancient Egypt. If reincarnation is real, maybe I was an Egyptian in a past life. It might explain my love for cats 😀 I’ve also been interested in the Middle Ages.

6. Do you love zombies, if not why?

-they’re not my favorite, but I don’t hate them. I like some zombie movies, like Resident Evil and World War Z, but for the most part they just don’t catch my interest. I’m more into vampires and ghosts.

7. Who is your favorite actor/actress

-I love Johnny Depp 😀  I’ve also recently become a fan Benedict Cumberbatch and David Tennant.

8. Do you now or have you ever had a nickname?

-a couple of women I used to work with used to call me “Boo” and “Jeannetta”.

9. What would you want your last meal to be?

-one last trip to a Chinese buffet 😀

-being broke
