Shine On Award!

2 Jun

Shine On AwardAs I mentioned yesterday, I was nominated for two awards – the Liebster Award and the Shine On Award. Both had people to nominate, questions to answer, info to share and so I decided to give them each a seperate post. (Liebster post here.)

I’d like to thank The Paperbook Blog for nominating me. I discovered her blog after reading her About Me page which brought a smile to my face, so you should go check it out!

I obviously accept this award and am honored to recieve it. Now for seven things about me.

  1. My cat’s name is Sushi.
  2. I am bilingual.
  3. I wish I had an Australian accent.
  4. I hvae a pizza-slice-shaped doll.
  5. I quit reading The Series of Unfortunate events halfway through the thirteenth and final book.
  6. I wrote a letter to Harry Potter and another to JK Rowling in 3rd grade.
  7. I have five ear piercings.

Now, I’m not sure I can possibly find 15 people to nominate. I’ve already done like five yesterday for my Liebster Award post. I’ll try my best.

  1. Playing Jokers (she’s also a NICE PERSON, and explained to me things I didn’t get when I was still just a beginner book blogger)
  2. Savidge Reads
  3. “I Said I Don’t Know.”– and Other Answers to Hard Questions (this link leads to an amazing post by this blogger)
  4. Thought Catalog
  5. Listful Thinking

Well, along with my other award I’ve covered ten blogs, so that should be okay, right?

Unfortunately I wasn’t getting much views on this blog till I got these awards and so I never even followed many poetry blogs in the first place. Maybe you guys can recommend some? That would be great! I tend to follow book blogs because of my own book blog called Book Bugs Bite.

So, to wrap it up, I am so happy I’ve been nominated and it means so much that Jayde-Ashe over at The Paperbook Blog said she loved my blog!

I’ll do my best to notify everyone I’ve nominated as soon as possible, and I’ll post more poetry soon. This week has been a great one.

The Liebster Award!

1 Jun

So today I found out that there are blog awards and then I was nominated for one! Two actually, so I’ll make two seperate posts for ‘em. Now, apparently there are things I’m supposed to… do, as part of getting these. The first step is to put the logo of the award in my post, however WordPress is insisting on NOT LETTING ME ADD THE IMAGE so I’ll try to fix that later.

*describes logo instead – I ❤ Liebster Award image*

Now I must accept the nomination. Well, I ACCEPT. And then link back to lovely Ms. The Professional Eavesdropper who nominated me and made my week.

I also need to nominate more blogs, preferrably ones with less than 200 followers, which is going to be a bit complicated because I don’t know how many of those I follow.

But first off, I’m supposed to share seven things about me so here we go!

  1. I really, REALLY, REALLY hate persimmons.
  2. The first persuasion essay I ever wrote was in 3rd grade and it was to convince my mom to get me a pet monkey.
  3. I am a twin.
  4. I have a 90210 poster on my closet and I haven’t watched that show in years but it’s the first poster I ever put up and I can’t get myself to remove it.
  5. I own a Hilary Duff CD.
  6. My ringtone has been Pocketfull of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield since the day I watched Easy A for the first time, which was over two and a half years ago.
  7. I have a Vincent Van Gogh shaped eraser.

Now, for the nominations. Thing is, I also run a book blog called Book Bugs Bite here on WordPress and so I follow a ton of book blogs. And I can’t find many that have less than 200. So here are some good-might-be-slightly-popular-I-hope-that’s-not-cheating blogs.

  1. Well Strike Me Down With A Ham Sandwich
  2. The Broke and the Bookish
  3. Bookkaholic
  4. The Librarian Who Doesn’t Say “Shhh”

I’m not so sure – am I supposed to answer the questions listed there? No clue. LET’S DO IT. Actually, LET’S DO ONLY THE ONES I FEEL LIKE ANSWERING. You guys, by now it should be clear that following me is sort of… an adventure! I actually have a lot less freedom writing here because it’s almost always poetry, whereas on my other blog I can review and talk about things, so you still don’t know how… odd I am.

1. What is your favourite book?

Really? ONE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME. I REFUSE TO CHOOSE ONE. I’ll settle for… five?

  • The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky
  • Beauty Queens, Libba Bray
  • Hitchhiker’s Guide Series, Douglas Adams
  • Mysterious Skin, Scott Heim
  • The Time Traveler’s Wife, Audrey Niffenegger

2. Do you prefer cooking for yourself, or others?

I don’t know how to make an omelette. I hope that’s a clear enough answer.

3. One place you would love to travel to?

Hm. Somewhere with lots of extreme sports for tourists. Or crazy-ass record breaking amusement park rides. Or a pilgrimmage to Douglas Adams’s grave… yeah just forget I said that.

So again, thank you so much lovely Julia for this lovely nomination!
