Now because I am ever so humble, I have declared my blog to be an award-free blog, but I do really appreciate it when another blogger takes the time to recognize my blog and to give me the gift of an award. And I do love to answer the questions posed to me as part of that recognition. So thank you, Paperkutzs, for the nomination, and thank you Rising Star for having created this award.
Now to the questions Paperkutzs posed.
1. What made you decide to be a blogger?
I’m an opinionated person and I have always enjoyed expressing my opinions. But nobody — my family, friends, or work associates — seemed all that interested in hearing my opinions on, well, this, that, and the other topics. So I decided to start a blog where I could express my opinions and share my perspectives. Then I just kept my fingers crossed that a few people might read my posts.
2. Did you love blogging right away or did it take some time to develop blog love.
It was love at first post.
3. Does blogging feel like a job to you or is it pure delight.
It’s never felt like a burden. I rarely run out of things I want to say on my blog, and I derive a lot of pleasure out of blogging, and the feedback from, and interaction with, the blogging community.
4. What inspires your posts.
I open my eyes, my ears, and my mind and see what’s going on around me. And, of course, there are prompts to inspire me. Word prompts, photo prompts, and other prompts.
5. Do you need something to inspire you to write or can your writing inspire others to write?
As noted above, I do leverage prompts from other bloggers and I do post my own prompts that I hope will give others some inspiration for things to write about.
Okay, questions asked and answered. I’m not going to tag any other bloggers for this award, but if anyone wishes to claim it or to just answer these same questions, consider yourself tagged.
