How exciting! I have been packing and packing and I am still packing for our trip to Florida. I felt I needed to regroup and take a well-deserved break. I brewed a knock em dead jolt of coffee and thought I would catch up on my emails. Well to my surprise, I found the multi-talented wordscoffeeandlacedresses had nominated me for the Brother of the World Award! I am extremely honored that I was selected for this award by a fellow blogger that exudes talent. Be sure and check out her blog at https://wordscoffeeandlacedresses.wordpress.com/author/wordscoffeeandlacedresses/.
There are five steps to be taken, which was so nicely outlined by wordscoffeeandlacedresses in her nomination blog to me.
Step 1 is to acknowledge the nomination, which I have done so.
Step 2. This requires me to display the badge of the ‘Brotherhood of the World Award’; which I have proudly displayed.
Moving along to Step 3 is to answer the questions set by the lovely person who has nominated you:
- Where do you do most of your writing and does it help to keep you focused?
I have my laptop and work area set up on my bakers rack in an area of our apartment, which we use as our office. This works quite well for me, as I have a place for my coffee. water and my vaporizers. I also utilize the shelves for my printer and other “stuff”.
- Do you play music or prefer silence when writing?
I like music or some sort of racket in the background. I even keep a radio on when I am sleeping. My hubby’s computer is next to mine, which he uses for various things – games, games, the stock market, more games, sports, games and need I say more?
- How has blogging benefited you, in terms of personal growth?
Tremendously! I love this blogging community. I am a LinkedIn fan, and quite honestly, LinkedIn is taking a back seat to my blogging community. I also blog on LinkedIn, however, my topics are relevant to the business world and not my personal experiences or fiction.
- What is your favorite book?
Pay it Forward by Catherine Ryan Hyde. Why? Because it started a movement of giving.
- What do you do, when you need to de-stress?
Listen to music, preferably oldies. My definition of oldies is the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. I like all music, however, I prefer some genres over others.
And now it is time for Step 5 and that is my selection of nominees. Drum roll, please!
Be sure to check out their blog. You will glad I brought these great bloggers to your attention.
And here is the grand finale – Step 5 – my questions and I promise they are easy.
- How do you spend your relaxation time?
- What type music do you like best?
- What is your favorite color?
- Do you love the wonderful scents and beauty of Spring or are you a person that loves the glorious colors and crispness of fall?
- If you had to change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
So, there you are – see I told you the questions were easy.
Enjoy the reward and again my special thanks to wordscoffeeandlacedresses for nominating me for this prestigious award.
