I just went on a lovely weekend trip to Portland, Oregon, and for once it was sunny! Well, Friday and Saturday at least. So it was great timing that Deena from Keats and Kitsch messaged me and informed me that she had given me the sunshine award! I was completely surprised and thankful; it’s always nice to know people enjoy your writing. Anyway, below is a little bit of information about the award, and some answers to questions that it asks about recipients.
The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers. The recipients of the Sunshine Award are: “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere”. The way the award works is this: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Answer questions about yourself. Select 10 of your favourite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they have been awarded the Sunshine Award!
What inspired you to start blogging?
I have always been in the writing and editing field. Now I outreach to blogs all day at work and have been spending so much time in the blogging world that I decided to join it myself! I also think it’s a great way to get my work out there for people to read.
How did you come up with the name to your blog?
Way back when I had a myspace account (highschool) I had made my URL Ditzyairhead because I can be a bit spacey sometimes. One of my friends misread it as dairy airhead. I’ve always liked cows and I also liked the play on words (derrierre head) because I can be a bit of a butt sometimes too. So when I was brainstorming blog names I thought of that and decided to go with it.
What is your favourite blog that you like to read?
My favorite blog is a food blog called Poor Girl Eats Well. It is all about eating healthy and tastily on a budget. I love Kimberly’s writing and the stories behind her recipes. It’s one of the few food blogs that I Don’t skip down to the ingredients section.
Tell about your dream job.
Something that pays me to travel, eat, and write.
Is your glass half full or half empty?
Half full of water, half full of air.
If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?
Australia. Ireland. Italy. I doubt I’d not enjoy a trip in any country though.
What food can you absolutely not eat?
Alfredo Sauce. Gross.
Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?
Most of the time, milk.
How much time do you spend blogging?
That’s hard to measure. I’ve been trying to post every day, and posts take me anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. But then I spend time reading other blogs and trying to figure out how to get more readers (though the ones I have are awesome!) so I’ll say I average an hour a day, but sometimes spend more.
Do you watch tv – if so, what are some of your favourite shows?
Right now I love White Collar, Food reality shows (silly, I know), Blue bloods, and Once Upon A Time is amazing.
I don’t think I can choose ten bloggers that I like more than others. I often just go to the topics section of wordpress and pick one to explore. I of course enjoy blogs with poetry, travel, and food, but explore others as well. You should do the same!
That’s all for now! Have a great day everyone, and I hope you had some sunshine this weekend too!
