And The Award Goes To … Me


This weekend I had the honor of receiving a blogger award. I have seen some of these previously, and although they are the blogger equivalent of a chain letter, it is still always an honor to be recognized by your fellow bloggers.

This time around it is an award I have not heard of previuosly called the Liebster award, and I am given this award by LozMatik over at Finding Truth. Thanks LozMatik!

This award. like the others, ask that you pass the award on to ten other bloggers and that they in turn do the same, and of course mention you. You also need to answer ten questions from your awarder and in turn, ask ten questions of your awardees.

So first off, I want to pass this award onto the following blogs. It’s not quite ten blogs, but these I think are deserving of special mention, and I follow them.

Living Life On O2 For Life – This is a blog about daily life while living on oxygen for pulmonary hypertension. It’s a very inspiring blog, even if you don’t have a chronic disease.

True Life Is Stranger Than Fiction – A blog by a lady living with an autoimmune disease

Doug Does Life – A creative monkey on how to find your path in life

The Truth Warrior – An inspirational blog

Hope For Heather – A blog by a lady living with Cowden’s Disease

A Universal Life – Really awesome daily inspirations

Spirit Bath – A blog with viral inspirational videos

Here now are the ten questions that I was asked to answer:

1. How long have you been blogging?

April will be four years

2. Who do you write for? Yourself or an audience or both?

Mostly for myself, but if it helps just one person, I did plenty

3. How has blogging influenced your life?
It has helped me to see things more positively, to find the good in everything, even when it seems the whole world is falling down around me.

4. Do you believe purpose is given or made?
I think it is given, and then we have to opportunity to make something from it or not

5. Mac or PC?
PC for 22 years and just switched to Mac in October last year

6. If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
Around the world

7. What is your favorite film?
Love Actually. Yep, I am a guy that loves romantic comedies.

8. What is truth?
Look in the mirror. That is your truth

9. A perfect world to you is…?
A day with no wars, no disease, no pain.

10. What advice would you give to others bloggers?
Be true to yourself. Write from your heart, not from what you think people want to read

And those same ten questions I also ask of my awardees. I think they were good ones!
