Okay here is the rest of what is asked for this award…

I started my blog before I knew anything about blogging. I had no information or predetermined view of blogging. I knew nothing about the blogging community at all.

I was reading a post by Martin Armstrong because a friend of mine used to like to read that blog to me over the phone. One day I simply followed the link at the bottom of one of his posts because I was curious about what WordPress was.

I decided to open a blog and write a few posts. It became very fun for me and I was quickly drawn into the blogging world and the blogging community.

Advice to other bloggers – be yourself. Make your blog unique and representative of you. Do not worry so much about catering to others because there will always be someone who will complain about something..no matter what you do. There will always be people who will read and enjoy your blog, if you are just being yourself.

Here are my questions for my nominees…

  1. Tell us about one of your favorite characters, either from a book or a  movie and what is appealing to you about them.
  2. Do you use personal experiences or beliefs in your writing? How do you incorporate those into your writing? 
  3. Do you incorporate any of your own personality into your writing? How do you do this?

Here are the answers to the Questions that were asked me by Mon.

What is your favorite book? 

I like the book called the Five Love Languages but I am not sure if I have  favorite book.

What’s one inspirational song?

I like the song called Don’t You Worry Bout  Thing by Stevie Wonder

What made you a better person?

I am  not quite sure how to answer this question. I think that every new experience and new person you meet can help you to grow and learn. I think you are always the person that you are but you can add knowledge, skills and experiences to your life and to yourself.

Your favorite quote?

“Do not alter your facts to fit your faith. Alter your faith to fit your facts.”  Ajahn Brahm
