Wow, that’s a lot of questions! So….forgive me, but I am going to pick a few from each rather than answering all of both.

  1. Have you ever given advice to someone else that you did not follow yourself?
  2. How do you feel about schools having stopped teaching cursive?
  3. What are you currently reading right now and are you enjoying it?
  4. On average about how many books do you read a year?
  5. Tell me one random fact about you that others may find odd.
  6. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE GENRE?
  7. WHAT DO YOU LIKE BEST ABOUT BLOGGING?
  8. WHAT DO YOU FIND MOST IRKSOME?
  9. WHAT IN YOUR EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST METHOD OF BLOG PROMOTION?
  10. IF YOU WERE TO START BLOGGING ALL OVER AGAIN TODAY, WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT YOU WOULD DO DIFFERENTLY?
  11. What kind of music do you enjoy listening to the most?

My Answers:

  1. Of course, who hasn’t? We are each on our own path and their path may not be my path, but that offers a great opportunity for unbiased and selfless advice.
  2. I hate it, but I understand why, especially in the US. We pay bills electronically, use debit, credit, or cash when out, and everything is typed because most people have horrible handwriting. They start teaching typing in Kindergarten.
  3. Right now I just started two new ones that were approved on NetGalley, A Monster Like Me, and The Mystery of Black Hollow Lane. Both sound great and I like them so far.
  4. I don’t keep track of that sort of thing, but I would suspect over a hundred (which is easy to do when you read children’s/MG/YA)
  5. I loathe wearing shoes and socks. If I must wear shoes it is always without socks. I only wear socks when necessary (like Kansas frigid winters).
  6. I don’t really have a favorite movie genre, but I dislike romance.
  7. I like all the different blogs. There is something out there for everyone.
  8. Stupidity and ignorance. They often go hand in hand like those little kids in A Christmas Carol.
  9. I would have no idea. I don’t advertise my blog or my books. I do have it listed when needed (like NetGalley) but other than that I don’t.
  10. I wouldn’t do anything differently. I am a creative writing blog, not a commercial one.
  11. I listen to a wide range of music. My playlist includes everything from Bach to Ozzy, and Broadway to Trace Adkins.

My Questions:

  1. Paper or plastic?
  2. Drive Thru/Take Away, Eat-in, or Delivery?
  3. Favorite pizza toppings?
  4. Ice cream, Frozen Yogurt, or Frozen Custard?
  5. Favorite Hamburger toppings?
  6. Coffee, Tea, or Soda?
  7. Favorite snack food?
  8. Sunny, Cloudy, or Overcast?
  9. If you could order anything from the machine in Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs, what would you order (its a machine that drops food from the sky)?
  10. Alien, Predator, or Human Villain…which would you rather face?
  11. What do you want from The Great Pumpkin this year?

    1. Hi Teresa, this is such a nice way of networking with other bloggers! I was not aware there were “blogging awards”. Are there any others you know? I do blog about art and I would appreciate your help if you know similar ways of getting connected with other people! You have a very nice blog by the way 🙂

      1. Hi! There are tons of blogging awards out there. The one’s off the top of my head are the Sunshine Blogger, Liebster Award, Random Acts of Kindness, and a Blogger Recognition award.

        Since you are on a WordPress blog, the easiest way to find other blogs that you may be interested in is through the reader. Click on reader -> search -> then at the bottom there is a “tags” option. Click on that, then add any tags that you would be interested in (like art). Once you do that, you can search millions of blog posts with that tag (this is why tagging posts is important).

        Find posts you like, read them, maybe leave a comment, and build networks.

  1. I’m with you on no socks! Only if I have to, and they don’t really go with flip flops.
    Same with music, as I like and listen to all kinds.
    Thanks for the nomination, and the interesting questions.I’ll get them answered soon. 🙂
