Sunshine Blogger Award #5

So I feel really bad because I missed the fact that Daisy in the Willows nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Thank you so much, Daisy! Please check out her great blog!



  • Thank whoever nominees your blog

  • Indulge yourself and answer any questions you feel happy to answer

  • Spread  that radiance to some other awesome blogs to keep the light shining brightly.

  • Use these questions or make up your own to ask your nominees

  • Tell your nominees that they have been nominated.

  • Put your preferred logo award on display . I chose this one.


Which decade do you miss the most?

That’s a tough one. I’d have to say the 90s.

To which poet do you feel most connected to?

This sounds horrible since I’m a writer, but I’m not sure I have one.

Your spirit cartoon character/TV show artist?

I’m going to go with Snoopy. I love him and he wants to be an author. I love him when he’s the Literary Ace! I’ve also been watching Crossing Jordan and really like her personality.

How has your blog helped you the most?

It’s helped me talk about my anxiety, share my experiences with others, and use my writing to hopefully help others with mental health issues. I’ve also met some wonderful people!

I have nothing wrong with the above questions, but they’re a little difficult. I’m going to ask some of my own. However, if you’d rather answer the ones above, feel free to do so!

My Questions for My Nominees:

1.) What’s your favorite TV show that you didn’t watch while it was airing, but have come to love? When did you start actually watching it?

2.) What’s a book that everyone raves about and you have no desire to read? Why don’t you want to read it?

3.) What do you think is the ‘key to happiness?’
