First Entertainer Blogger Award Nomination, Say What??

Welp. I guess you’ve heard that the rumors are true. I’ve won a Nobel Peace Prize…

Oh, wait. Ahem. Excuse me. I’ve apparently misspoken. That won’t come for another two weeks, at least! What I really meant to say is that I’ve won the “Entertainer Blogger Award”. There we go. Can’t slur our words, now, can we?

So, yes, the Entertainer Blogger Award. There’s just something about this award that makes it my favorite out of all the others. And the fact that one of my favorite bloggers nominated me for this? Well, that just instantly made it EVEN MORE fantabulous. You like my new word there? I made it myself.

To start this award off I want to give a HUGE thank you to the lovely writer of “Dear Lily June”. I 100% recommend this blog to my  readers and give it a big whopping Hannah Stamp of Approval. That wasn’t really a thing until now, but now that it IS a thing, you should be completely amazed that she got that honor. Just saying.

You can find her here at ( https://dearlilyjune.wordpress.com/ ) You will not be disappointed. It’s filled to the brim with raw and beautifully written letters to her daughter Lily June. She gives her wisdom and experience for anything that life will bring Lily June’s way.

Well, I guess it’s time to list the rules of the award!

  • Write a post including the award picture.
  • Nominate 12 other bloggers who are funny, inspiring, and most importantly ENTERTAINING.
  • Add these rules to the post.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and leave the link to their blog!
  • Also, answer the questions down below.

These are the questions I have been asked:

1.) Why did you start to blog in the first place?

In the wise words of my “About” page, I shall answer this question.

“…you might want to know, “Why did you create this blog, Hannah?”

and I’d have to say, “Oh, that’s EASY. I created this blog to solve world hunger and win the Nobel Peace Prize, all by next Tuesday!”

And if you don’t believe THAT little trinket of knowledge, I’ll give you a second answer: I created this blog as another outlet to express myself through my writing. While being an author is my ultimate goal for the future, I am perfectly content at the moment using this blog to expressing my thoughts and opinions. We’ll see what happens from there!

2.) What is your favorite book?

I like all kinds of books. Although, I’ve been super into political/detective thrillers lately. It’s an exciting genre to read (and WRITE) !

3.) What do you hate the most?

When people think they have to be perfect to be of any importance *cough* *cough* me when I was younger *cough*

So, yeah. Embrace those flaws, people.

4.) What is your favorite food item from the mall?

SOFT PRETZELS FROM AUNTIE ANNE’S.

I’m convinced they are the cure to 99.9% of life’s ailments.

Okay, okay, okay. They cure hunger. That is all.

5.) What is your favorite past time activity?

I’m a firm believer that even whenever you’re not doing anything, you can at least be doing something. What does this mean? If I’m ever watching some pointless video on the internet or a movie on Netflix I’m either crocheting or drawing, as well.

Another thing? Duhh. Writing! Writing is a passion of mine so you can always expect me to be writing something, in one way or another.

Now, here’s the REAL hard part. Nominating all you entertainers out there deserving of this award! I may not nominate all 12 that it says to nominate, but I definitely will nominate a few new blogs that I have come across that I’m really taking a liking to.

( https://ysobelluna.wordpress.com/ ) Her beautiful photography and writings concerning her travels inspire and ignite the wanderlust inside. I just recently found her blog no more than a month ago and I’m already sooo in love with it. So, Ysobel, you’ve gained another dedicated reader, my friend.

( https://dineandrhymeblog.com/ ) This is such a cute little blog! I just LOVE the idea behind it- it is truly unique and she executes this with such skill (and great poetry)!! So, if you like food and if you like poetry, go check this out. It’s worth it!

Those will be all my nominees for now..Hopefully, I didn’t forget anyone. I didn’t want to nominate people that I have nominated before for an award, so I need to go explore and find some more awesome blogs to follow that are worthy of awards!

Till next time!

Liebster Blogger Award #2 ???

GUYS!! My second Liebster Blogger Award?! Eyyy! I knew all this typing wasn’t for nothing 😉 But seriously, such an honor and all thanks to this awesome blogger (Lord of the Trekkies) – you can find her at  https://lordofthetrekkies.wordpress.com/

I received this nomination a month or two ago, but things have been kinda sorta CRAZY around here and I hadn’t gotten to this post until recently. So, sorry for the wait, but I wanted it to have my full attention. Better late than never, am I right?

I’ll start off with the rules of this lovely little award, which will especially be helpful to those I choose to nominate:

liebster-award-rules-i

Now, without further ado…let’s answer some questions!

1. If you could go back in time, where would you go?

Good question! When I was a kid I’d have to say “the Little House on the Prairie days”. But today, after a few more years of history classes, I think I’d pass on the offer and go for a time much more modern than prairie and much simpler than today, (AKA a time where you could easily avoid getting scalped, and a time you could leave your doors unlocked without a care in the world). So, naturally, the 1950s and 60s would be an interesting time to visit. Notice I said visit. 🙂 Although the 50s and 60s have a bit of an enchanting quality in some areas, it was indeed not a perfect time to live in. With severe segregation and discrimination of African Americans and women in the workforce. This is an important part that is very easy to overlook with society’s depiction of 1950s day and age. So, with that said! It’d be fun to visit for a day in a place like Mayberry, South Carolina. The Andy Griffeth Show is what is behind my loving the idea of its simplicity. 

2. Why did you start blogging?

I was kind of inspired by a family friend that started blogging. I’d been writing since childhood, and this seemed like the most reasonable outlet to express myself through writing in this period of my life! I’d blogged before, but with WordPress it’s different. There is a real community of writers and readers that interact and give feedback to each other, which makes blogging sooooo much more fun! Before, it felt like I was talking into thin air. 

3. Who, in your opinion, was the best actor ever? Why?

I have a few favorite actors. Audrey Hepburn, first and foremost. I loved her in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, “Roman Holiday”, and many other titles she has been in over the years. She was one of the few actors and famous individuals that continually held themselves to a particular standard of excellence, reflection, and class. She was much more than a pretty face, in fewer words.

4. What is your favorite animal?

Alrighty, ladies and gents. I’m going to put a “CLICHE” warning out there because it’s true. My favorite animal is a dog. I just cannot tell a lie. But my second favorite animal would have to be ducks/ducklings. There’s nothing cuter!

5. What is your earliest memory?

Whew! Alex, you’re coming up with some really good questions! This is definitely a toughie…I actually have a lot of memory of when I was little. Especially when I was two or three years old. One memory, in particular, was a special Christmas morning in 2002 or 2003. I was with my brother, my mom, and my dad, with Christmas presents under the beautifully ornamented tree. I had my absolute favorite plaid nightgown on and I recall that that was the morning I received my very own wooden doll house. It had its own furniture, had a little Barbie doll couple to live in this humble abode, it even had stairs from one floor to the next. (There were THREE floors!) I was practically in Barbie heaven.

6. Who is your favorite artist? (Music, books, art, etc…)

I have a lot of favorite artists, including authors, because writing is indeed an art form. Charles Dicken’s work in David Copperfield was impressive. Other than that? To Kill a Mockingbird was another wonderful classic that has important lessons inside. Those are my favorite classics, not including the novels that I read. And for art? I’d have to say Monet is an artist that I really like. “Waterlilies” is a beautiful piece of his. Although, I’m a huge fan of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” as well. I’d have to say Starry Night is my favorite.

7. Favorite emoji?  I use the laughy face the absolute most, but I love the one with its tongue sticking out too hahaha

8. What’s your favorite meme?

roasted

Just because this is 100% accurate.

9. Is Kahn from Star Trek Into Darkness really evil? Why or why not?

Um, TOTALLY….because. Yeah, well, I actually have no clue.

10. DC or Marvel? Why or why not?

Marvel, because I’ve actually heard of Marvel before. Some of my friends watch it.

11. Best movie you’ve ever seen?

The last movie I saw was Center Stage: On Pointe. It’s a movie about a dancer: ballet AND modern dance is included. I thought it was a cute movie.

 

11 Facts about Myself?

I’d like to maintain some of my mystery, so maybe I’ll do eleven facts the next time around haha
