The Unique Blogger Award

I appreciate anyone and everyone who takes time to read my work and am especially honored when someone takes time to recognize it.  Thank you Aranab for nominating me for the Unique Blogger Award.

Here’s just a bit about Aranab before I get into answering questions. He has created a positive space where he shares daily gratitude, plans to make self-improvements and quotes of the day. With the world so full of negative situations, I find his posts to be a refreshing reminder that there is always something to be grateful for and always something to improve. If you are looking for a quick shot of positivity, his page is a great one to visit.

Aranab had 3 questions for those he nominated:

What are you working on right now?

Writing more consistently, improving presentation and leadership skills. Balancing hobbies (painting, writing and public speaking practice) with work and family needs.  Additionally, I’m learning to water color in hopes of creating better visuals for my blog and creating meaningful gifts for friends and family.

What’s your end goal with blogging?

I started my blog with hopes that it would help me create more consistently. I’ve always loved stories and I’ve always dreamed of writing books of my own stories.  As I’ve started my blog, I also became more active in a public speaking/leadership club (Toastmasters).  It’s odd but the two activities work well together. I often find myself writing about something I’ve presented, or more often, presenting something I’ve written about. As I get better with both, I have dreams of being a published author, a paid motivational/inspirational speaker and one day a successful life coach.

What is the best advice you’ve have ever received?

 No matter how insignificant you think your experiences are, your story can inspire, teach, encourage, motivate, uplift someone who really needs it. . . you only need to share it.

If it helps just one person, isn’t it all worth it?

  1. Holy mother of christ, you have made my blog sound a million times better than I ever could. Thank you so much for your kind gesture. And also your answers have given me the inspiration I needed, given the dip in motivation of late.

    1. It’s definitely different from acrylic which is what I learned long ago. I’ve found a lot of beginner tutorials on YouTube and try to learn basics there. How are you going about it

  2. Thank you for nominating my blog “A Simlish Life”. I am surprised to put it mildly as this is after a week of blogging 😀 If someone told me when I published my first post last Monday- I would have had a good giggle. So wow– just wow.
