So, my last post was to tell you guys that I would be taking some time away from my blog so that I could finish the last details of my book before publication.
Well, progress is very slow, what with the kids at home and my mom in her vacation, I haven’t yet finished. I am, however, very close.
Today I came out of my editing haze to let you know I’m still alive and to let you know that I’ve been nominated for the awesome blogger award.
But before I go any further, I’d like to ask everyone for a silent moment for Ryder, our friend James Cudney’s beloved friend, and his shiba inu dog of ten years who passed away unexpectedly last week.
My thoughts are with you, J.
So, Lisarey1990 from Culture Vulture Express, thank you for thinking about my blog when you were choosing your nominees. I enjoy following your blog and reading all the great and interesting stories – sometimes funny, sometimes thought provoking. For more on lisarey1990, go to:
1. What is the latest book you’re reading and are you enjoying it?
Me: Deja Who, by Mary Janice Davidson. I picked it up a few weeks ago and sadly – as I was enjoying it very much – had to put it down because time and I aren’t on speaking terms anymore.
2. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Other?
Me: Well, those of you who know me know how clueless I am with social media. For those who don’t, being blind and managing a platform that is mainly visual isn’t an easy task. So, other than blogging, my twitter and facebook account are suffering horribly.
3. What is your favourite word and why?
Me: Lately? Skedaddle – it’s got this nice sound to it and for some reason I find it funny (don’t ask why).
4. Dogs or Cats?
Me: I love animals in general and I’ve had plenty of pets throughout the years, from small lizards to parrots and a lot in between. But if I were to choose a pet, I’d choose a cat since they aren’t as dependable.
5. Is there any song that holds any special meaning to you?
Me: I love music and I think I can connect with a part of each song I like to listen to (that’s why I like it), but as I pointed recently to a friend, ‘The greatest love of all’ does have depth and meaning.
6. What do you feel strongly about?
Me: People who judge others – and gossip about it without knowing the truth. It just pisses me off, especially if they are gossiping about someone I know.
7. If you could grant one person in your life one wish, what would it be?
Me: Peace of mind.
8. What is your favourite film?
Me: I haven’t watched a movie in over a decade, but before that, I loved watching Brave Heart; Dragon Heart; Rush Hour; Bad Boys and Money Speaks… There are probably others,, but I can’t remember now. I probably will once I publish this post.
9. What is your favourite book?
Me: Ah, I’m actually a bookaholic. So, I have so many favorites, this is actually a tough question.
10. Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions?
Me: I did not. I think though that the last one I made was that I would no longer look back and regret what was once
Alright, questions answered. Now it’s time to start nominating. Though I’d suggest the nominees head on to Lisarey’s post at https://culturevultureexpress.wordpress.com/2018/01/09/culture-vulture-express-wins-awesome-blogger-award/
to make sure there wasn’t any images to post here.
So, I’ll go a little wild here and start nominating (and they aren’t only ten).

I know I’m forgetting a few, and like the movies, I know I’ll remember them the moment I click on publish, so whoever I didn’t mention here, I will on the next award – the sunshine blogger award.
As this is an awesome blogger award, I thought it appropriate to make my questions something blogging related, so most of my questions will be about blogging, the rest about you.
Note that you aren’t obligated by any means to answer these questions but I’d love to hear your take on them, so, please do!
1- Why did you start blogging?
2- Do you choose the contents of your blog by random or do you have a system?
3- Do you rather type the contents of your post on a keyboard – all ten fingers – or on a screen with thumbs?
4- If technology was to become extinct but there was one thing that you could keep, what would it be?
5- Is there a type of blog that you seek to follow, or do you only follow those who follow you – or do you only follow the blogs that you really enjoy?
6- During a cold storm, would you rather spend your time reading, watching a movie or talking on the phone?
7- When you hear the word fantasy, what comes first to your mind?
8- Have you ever lied about having a commitment so you could stay at home lazing around or blogging, or just to finish reading a book you particularly enjoyed?
9- What’s a word you can’t stop using on your posts but think you should?
10- If you were asked to rename your blog, what would you name it?
That’s all for now fellas. I’ll be coming and going around wp as I finish the last details in my book – I’m slower than a slug on a hot desert road, but I’ll return to regular postings the moment I finish.
Wish me luck!
