I was nominated for another award today called the Ideal Inspiration Blogger Award. This is my second award, my first one being the Sunshine Blogger Award. I was nominated by S. G.

  3. Nominate up to 9 other bloggers and ask them 5 new questions.

What do you get from blogging? In what way does blogging satisfy you?

I get the excitement and satisfaction of sharing my thoughts with the world. Blogging also encourages me to write every day, or most days at least, which is a great goal.

If you could be doing anything at all right now, what would you be doing?

Realistically, writing. πŸ“

But you said anything at all, so… going on a corona-free Mediterranean cruise. πŸ˜›

From the field of your blog’s niche, whose work would you most love to promote?

I don’t know if I’m interpreting this correctly, but in my opinion, the best blogs similar to mine are… wow, this is a hard question. Now that I think of it, I don’t really know of any blogs that similar to mine. I suppose Word Nerd Scribbles (my nominator – link above), because I always look forward to Thursdays, when there is a new short story.

What project lays dormant in your heart right now, waiting to come out when you’re ready?

Wow. I don’t know. Perhaps to publish a book — I just started working on a novel that it’s likely I’ll never finish, but maybe I will… only time (and, of course, hard work) will tell.

What do you tell people scares you the most when you cannot tell the truth?

Well, I haven’t really been asked that very much, and when I have, it’s by people that I do tell the truth to. But I would say that two of my fears are bugs and surrealism.

Well, I’m not really scared of bugs (well, I kind of am), I mostly just hate them… same with worms and spiders and all those little things. I don’t like touching them. I would not touch a big bug or a worm or a snail.. I might touch a frog but I wouldn’t hold it. I’m fairly comfortable touching things like starfish and urchins though, like in aquariums, as long as they aren’t too slimy…

I’m also kind of scared of “surrealism.” What I mean by this is, like, mirrors. I don’t like mirrors at all. Like, your reflection doing something different… I know it’s silly but it’s always in the back of my mind when I look at myself in one.

I nominate…

Since last time, I nominated blogs that I enjoy reading, this time I will nominate some of the bloggers who read my blog.








My Questions For You

Since none of my nominees are the same as mine for the Sunshine Blogger Award, I’m going to reuse some of my questions.

  1. Why do you blog?
  2. What things are you interested in besides your blog niche?
  3. Which of your posts has been the most popular? Reflect on this… why, do you think? Do you agree? Is it really your best work or is it just what seems like would appeal to readers (in your opinion)?
  4. What motivates you in life?
  5. Do you ever feel nervous before publishing a blog post?

Note: If you are an award-free blog, or you have a different reason to not accept this award, that is totally fine.

Now I never know how to conclude posts…


That works. ;P

    Oh, you’re an insectophobe to? (I’m one myself, LOL πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). The thought of having a nice corona free Mediterranean cruise sounds quite cool.

  2. Congratulations on your award, ikwords!

    I enjoyed your answers, esp. the cruise. Regarding bugs and small creatures, I’m exactly like what you are. I even have a collection of dead slate urchins.

    Thanks a lot for the nomination. I’ll take it up combining with one another on last Saturday this month.

    1. Thanks! I have always wanted to go to the Mediterranean sea but… It-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named kinda ruined everything for everyone. πŸ˜‰ Heh, did you find the urchins yourself?

      You’re most welcome! Thanks for reading my blog. πŸ˜€

      1. That’s a lovely place to visit. I’ve read about that.

        Haha.. it’s a wonderful name for the new ‘dark lord’.

        Yeah, I was fond of collecting slate urchins as a kid whenever I visited beaches. They’re quite common here. I have a pouch full of them. 😁 I just don’t remember where I put it the store. I’ve been searching for the pouch since the day I published ‘Oceans day’ post on my blog. Whenever I find the bag, I’ll make sure to put a picture of that.

        It’s my pleasure reading your blog! ☺
