The Real Neat Blog Award

It’s Thursday and I’ve struggled to post all week, bar from my recent interview with Tell the Wolves.

Things are hectic at the moment – balancing college and my freelance graphics work (check out this survey!), I’ve also been trying to find myself a job, so my blog might be getting a little neglected. Alas, I’ll try my best to get things back up onto their feet within the next couple of days.

Something that kickstarted me to write a post this morning – apart from my late start at college – was the wonderful Sam (bellsiebooks) who volunteered me for The Real Neat Blog Award. Thank you Sam! ❤

Sisterhood, literally, is the relationship between sisters, but it is often used to refer to the relationship between women.

The wonderful bellsiebooks (who has a wonderful taste in music, by the way) has been kind enough to nominate me for the Sisterhood of the World Award. You can read her post here.

How it works:

1) Thank the blogger who nominated you and link to their blog in your post.
2) Answer the questions that the blogger who nominated you has provided.
3) Nominate ten other bloggers (or up to 10).
4) Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nominations.

My Answers

1) If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Probably to New Zealand – I’ve always wanted to visit.

2) What is your preferred genre to read?
I don’t really have a preferred genre.

3) What was the best book you’ve read so far this summer?
Go Set A Watchman, Harper Lee. But I’ve only read four books so far this summer.

4) Quick pick: sweet or salty?

5) Do you like listening to music when you’re working/writing/reading or do you need silence?
I tend to need silence, unless it’s classical music, because the lyrics interrupt with my brain. I’m not good at multitasking.

6) What’s your dream job?
In the broadest of terms, I want to be a freelance creative. You can read more about what this means here. Continue reading Sisterhood

It’s a first

ImageIf you’re reading this post – which you are – then you’ll most probably have access to the Internet (I say most probably because you might have had this post printed out for you, in which case, you are very strange); if you have access to the Internet, you’ve probably heard all of the buzz about the Billboard Music Awards recently. I’m afraid to say that, no, I have not won myself a BMA – not this year, at least – but I have been honoured enough to have been nominated for a different type of award.

If you are active in the blogosphere, then you’ll know all about blogging awards. The person who has nominated me for such award has a stash of many awards from over the years, which tells you one thing for sure: you should read her blog.

Janey – who’s not actually called Janey – has one of the most entertaining blogs I have ever had the privilege of reading. Likewise, she is wonderfully kind and a great conversationalist. If you’re not already a frequent reader, you should definitely check out her blog. Thank you so much for nominating me, I really appreciate it!
