I feel so bad for leaving this post as long as I have. I was nominated for the ‘Inventive Blogger Award’ back in February of this year by I Like The Smell Of New Things, and firstly I’d just like to say a MASSIVE thank you for this! Much appreciated! As all of my awards are! 🙂
There are some rules, of course. I need to nominate five other people for this award, as well as list five things I love about blogging… Don’t mind if I do! 😉
So, I shall start with the five things I love about blogging:
1 – Release
I love the release I get from writing down my thoughts and feelings. When I’m happy and I blog, I have a funny little smile on my face as I type the words. If I’m pissed off or angry when I blog, I get lost in the words, emotion rushing through me as tears stream down my cheeks. I used to find my release in self harm. Now I blog. So yeah, that’s why I love it!
2 – Anonymity
This blog is as anonymous as I can make it, and that’s for a reason. I write things here that I would never, ever say to another human being. There are some horrible words in this blog, and some lovely ones too. But I like the fact it’s my little space, I can say what I like, and no one can put a face to the name.
3 – Feedback
When someone comments on my blog, I have this little rush of happiness. Even the odd negative comment gives me a rush. I normally need to come out with some rebuttal, of course! I love it when people comment back – it’s like a little seal of approval.
4 – Obsession
It started off as a passion, now it’s a straight up obsession. If something big happens in my life (or small, to be fair) I immediately feel the need to share it with you guys. It’s mental. I think breaking up with my blog now would be worse than any breakup I’ll ever have in my life, that’s for sure!
5 – Nostalgia
I love looking back through the life and times of… well, me really. I’ve had some pretty good times in my life. I’ve had some bad times too, but the fact that I can turn around in on year from now and tell you exactly what I was doing 12 months ago actually makes me smile. I love looking back at old blog posts, old memories, old photos…. It makes me smile! 😉
So there you have it – the five things I love the most about blogging. I could probably name a thousand and one different things but that’s what you’ll have to put up with for just now!
Now for the five people I want to nominate for the Inventie Blogger Award…. Are you sitting comfortably?
1 – Thought Buffet
I love these guys, and some of the posts really make me laugh. I often find inspiration in their musings, and I think it’s well worth a read!
2 – #HartChronicles
Girlie, cute, real and funny. Do I need to say much more? 😉
It’s a pretty gritty story of what the title says really. It’s a bumpy ride, but an interesting one. Have a peek and you’ll see what I mean!
4 – Horny Geek Girl
She’s a horny, geek girl. What more could you ask for? She’s sharing her stories, giving us advice and reviews, and generally an all round fabulous kinda chick.
5 – Snarky Snatch
Naughty, satirical and plenty of mature content. What’s not to love? 😉
So there you have them – the five bloggers I’m nominating here. There are a few rules you gotta follow:
1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the The Inventive Blogger Award.
2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen- there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required- and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
3. Include in your blog post *FIVE* things that you enjoy about blogging.
4. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them- (please don’t alter the instructions or the badge!)
5. Come over and say hello to the originator of the “The Inventive Blogger Award” via this link: http://DonCharisma.org/2013/12/24/christmas-awards-the-inventive-blogger-award
6. And as a winner of the award- please add a link back to the blog that presented you with this award, and then proudly display the award on your blog.
Congratulations to all the nominees!
And a big thanks to I Like The Smell Of New Things for nominating me! <3
