I’M USING ROBERT’S QUESTIONS SINCE HIS AWARD CAME IN FIRST. I STILL LOVE YOU DANICA, OF COURSE HEDGEHOG TOO.
Why do you blog?
Blogging started as a way to help grieve my Granny as time went on I wanted to share what I had learned as a caregiver. The rest they say is history.
What most frustrates you about blogging?
When I’m to sick to write or write anyway and its complete gibberish.
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
Learning, meeting people from every corner of the globe, feedback and helping others. Blogging also fulfills my 6th grade goal of being a Journalist. Not quite the same but I’ll take it.
How do you define success?
The internal knowledge I did my best.
What is the one thing you most want from your followers?
Feedback, feedback, feedback, feedback!
What is the one thing you most want to give the people you follow?
How do you define the difference between positive and negative criticism?
You can learn from all feedback if you can peel your ego away. Try not to curse too much.
How do you deal with moments when a blogger you like posts something you don’t like?
I’m all ears……everyone has an opinion, doesn’t mean there’s not another side to story.
Is your blog a journal, a literary experiment, performance art or none of that?
I have three blogs each are different and are what the followers want’s them to be.
What is success as a blogger?
Feeling good about the post you write or information you share. The icing is always comments, but the world is moving faster and it’s hard for people to always take the time.
By your definition, do you consider yourself successful?
I’m successful in life by putting one foot in front of the other. Any day out of bed is a great day and leaving the house gives me the chills.
Questions (You can make your own up if you like, be a rebel)
What song do you listen to that always pumps you up?
As a child did you color inside the lines?
Best vacation parents ever took you on?
As a teenager what was dream job? Did you find your dream?
The first and last song on your playlist?
Walking along the surf or jump in for swim?
Two examples of a perfect day.
Hiking or Parasailing?
Before Blogging did you write journals, professionally?
THE AWARD WOULD NOT SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY IF I HAD TO PICK 11 BLOGS. INSTEAD THIS IS A SHOUT OUT TO ALL THAT FOLLOW LOOKING FOR THE LIGHT BLOG AND SURVIVORS BLOG HERE. I WOULD BE REMISS IF I DID NOT MENTION THE CONTRIBUTORS OF SURVIVORS BLOG HERE. BOTH HAVE TRUELY CHANGED MY DAYS, WEEKS AND YEARS. ESPECIALLY MY SICKEST YEARS.
INSERT YOUR NAME HERE AND SPREAD SUNSHINE.
