Thank you so much, Ragazza Triste (Cynthia) of www.wondercyncyn.wordpress.com, for nominating me for the Mystery Blogger Award! This is my very first blog award ever! By being nominated for it, it appears as though I have achieved some of my writing goals mentioned below!
What I like best about Cynthia/Ragazza Triste is that she says in her about page that she “knew even before I turned 12 that I wanted to be weird, different and boring.” I only just now looked up her blog name’s English translation and it’s “sad girl.” Rancor is one of favorite poems of hers: “He ignored my plea when I implored him to stay / I cried silently / Gripping the metal of my verdict.” She is an eloquent poet and a joy to read. Also, thanks to her, I now know what a Jeepney is!
About The Award:
Created by Okoto Enigman, this is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts.
He decided to call the award”Mystery Blogger Award”“because the meaning of my name, “Enigma” is “mystery.” So basically, it’s named after myself; the creator. Plus, I think it’s cool because there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, it’s divine! And we find friends where we least expect.”
Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging, and they do it with so much love and passion.
Incidentally, THIS is how this award started. Cool background.
I’d like to also promote my fellow nominees, all amazing blogs and well worth following:
1: What film best describes your life?
Riding in Cars with Boys probably
2: Which pet do you prefer? Cats? Dogs? Reptiles? Why?
RODENTS. Any. love them all. I’ve always loved them, starting with guinea pigs, love squirrels, mice, rats, rabbits too.
3: Why did you decide to become a writer?
Does anyone actually decide to be a writer?
I”ll be interested to see others’ answers to this one.
I’ve written poetry since the 5th grade and writing comes so easily to me that I do try to get paid for it sometimes. This blog though – is just my creative outlet. Something I learned I should make time to give myself from my friend Shalagh Hogan at www.shalavee.com
4: What do you want to achieve as a writer?
A living would be nice! Mostly I just like to share ideas and thoughts. To inspire and educate others about things I find out about, or know something about. To improve someone’s life. To publicize little known people, places, events or things that I think are cool.
5: What are your pet peeves?
Having to say something after I’ve already said it. Having what I have said be disregarded. Inefficiency.
6: If this world will end now, what are your last words?
I love my babies!
I hope I can find people to nominate that haven’t already done this! But here goes – some of my favorite blogs who steadfastly keep my attention, which is not an easy thing to do between my attention span and my life!
