Sunshine Blogger Award

Sharing is caring!

I am excited to announce that I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Lisa who writes the Fluxing Well blog.  Thanks for the nomination Lisa!  I feel so blessed to be part of a great community of bloggers.  Sunshine Blogger Award nominations are given to new bloggers striving to be a positive and inspiring part of the blogging community.

Award Rules

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Here are my Sunshine Blogger Award nominee questions from Lisa at Fluxing Well and my answers to each one.

  1. What inspired you to start blogging?
    • I started traveling across the country with my son when he was 4 months old and we go on at least one flight a month.  Therefore, I’ve become great at navigating airports and general traveling with a baby.  I wanted to write a post to share that info with other moms.  I wrote that post first and then everything else has sort of taken off from there.
  2. Where do you get your blogging ideas?
    • Whatever is going on in my parenting life at the time.  I try to pay attention to things that I wondered about as a mom, and once I figure them out, write a post to help other moms.
  3. What is your favorite time-management tip for bloggers?
    • Set 25-minute chunks of time where you focus on one task and set a timer to limit how long you can be on social media.  I find that fastest way to waste time is to get sucked into all the social media notifications.
  4. What are your biggest blogging challenges?
    • I read all these great tips about ways to improve my blog, but then I end up constantly feeling behind because of how many things need improvement.
    • Confidence in that I’m writing content that others find useful.
  5. What was the last gift you gave someone?
    • I gave my husband a $5 Target gift card.
  6. What new flavor of potato chip would you like to create?
    • Mint chocolate chip ice cream
  7. What are you well-known for among your family and friends?
    • My ambition
  8. What is something funny that has happened to you recently?
    • My husband and I were walking out of a Tim Hortons in Canada, and I was eating a donut.  A seagull swooped down and grabbed my half-eaten donut out of my hand.  The bird was so fast it was on the ground eating my donut before I realized what happened.
  9. What is your favorite movie of all time?
    • The Blind Side
  10. What is your favorite smell?
    • Horses
  11. What is a favorite inspirational quote?
    • “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they are right, you believe lies, so you eventually learn to trust none but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.” – Marilyn Monroe
