Crafty B, my mom and an amazing writer, nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! It’s an award that you can give to authors who bring happiness (aka sunshine) into your life. With the award comes a short and fun writing game! I’ll try my best to follow the rules.
1.) Thank the person who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
2.) Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
3.) Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
4.) List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog. (I’m not sure where to find the logo! Sorry!)
Questions Asked of Me (my responses are in red)
1.) Why did you start a blog? I started a blog to show my artwork to the WordPress community.
2.) When did you start writing and why? I started writing this summer because my mom (Crafty B) encouraged me to just go ahead and start.
3.) Do you have a religious preference? You’re not dying. I am Christian, but I love finding out about other religions!
4.) Do you have other creative talents? I enjoy writing, drawing, and composing music.
5.) Are you an introvert or extrovert? I would say I’m a little bit of a mix. If left alone, I wouldn’t actively seek out new people, but neither would I intentionally avoid others.
6.) Are you in a relationship? If so, how do they feel about your writing? I’m not in a romantic relationship, no!
7.) Kids? I have no kids, because I am a kid.
8.) What is the one thing you want to do before you can’t do things any more? Okay, I lied, you are dying. Hurry! Aaaah! Um, I guess I’d like to find my “soulmate” and tell them how I feel.
9.) What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing? I like playing video games and watching YouTube videos!
10.) If you could do anything without failing and money wasn’t a concern, what would you do? I would go work for Nintendo and make video games.
11.) Are you blogging in hopes of being discovered or just as an exercise in community and writing? I hope that I get discovered and can someday make a living by doing art!
12.) Have you published anything yet? I have published my art on WordPress. c: (But no, I haven’t published anything like a book or a play.)
Hell Combat.com (They have some great artwork and characters!)
Aak fictionspawn (They’re a great writer of amazing and mysterious scary stories!)
Rohvannyn (Their site has a lot on it. I especially love their tips for artists!)
Cristian Mihai (A very cool writer!)
raulconde001 (Another awesome writer!)
Lucas Palhão (Yet another fantastic writer. I love the Word of the Day articles! Sadly, I can’t read Portuguese, so I have to read this blog using Google Chrome’s translations.)
And… I know that’s only six people, but I don’t actually know a lot of authors or artists on WordPress. The other bloggers I’m aware of were already nominated by my mom, haha. I’ve only just started out as a blogger, and I don’t spend a lot of time browsing for new content! If you have any recommendations of bloggers I should check out, leave them in the comments!
Questions For My Nominees (I might steal a few from Crafty B)
1.) What prompted you to start sharing your art/writing on the internet?
2.) What makes you inspired to write/draw? This could be a person, place, activity, etc.
3.) What is your biggest life goal?
4.) What qualities and characteristics do you look for in a friend or romantic partner?
5.) If you had a child or children, what would you want them to learn from you?
6.) What’s your favorite non-artistic hobby?
7.) What’s your favorite word, and why?
8.) Do you have any pet peeves? If so, what are they, and why do they bother you?
9.) Are you a night owl or an early bird?
10.) What’s your favorite type of weather?
11.) Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob? LOL!
To my nominees, I hope you have fun with these questions! That’s all for today, so thanks for reading my blog! Farewell for now, Citizens of the Pencil Princess.
Okay, one last thing. While we’re on the topic of sunshine, I have a cool design available in my store right now. It’s a simple sun logo with the text “If you’re not at the beach then you’re doing it wrong” on top! If you love the sun and the sand, this design is for you. As I write this, the design has not yet been approved by CustomizedGirl, but hopefully it will be by the time this post goes up. If so, it should be the first design available. Farewell again!
