My Lips Are Sealed!

As it turns out, I can’t actually view anyone else’s post but my own. I can like it, but I’m not allowed to see it while logged in. And when I attempted to log in to WordPress Support to ask what the problem was, it decided that I don’t actually exist. That’s a nice fact to know, I suppose.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Liebster Award!!!

I have just been awarded the Liebster Award. I did not see this coming at all, and super thanks to http://cloveramerica.net/ for awarding it to me! It’s especially cool to get it in the middle of a massive metamorphosis of the blog. The concept of the blog has evolved so much from my original plan. Can’t say it’s a bad thing either!

So, what is it? The Liebster Award is community-based, and qualifying blogs must have fewer than 300 followers. It’s a great way to discover new blogs and bring them to the attention of your readership and the Blogosphere.

Once nominated, you answer 11 questions about yourself or your blog, then give 11 random facts about yourself. The next step is to nominate 11 more qualifying bloggers for the award and create 11 questions for them to answer. Then you must visit each blog you’ve nominated and inform him/her about the award.

So here are the 11 questions from http://cloveramerica.net/, along with my answers:

1.  Why do you blog?
It started as me wanting to get the word out about my writing, but I’ve met so many awesome people on here since that point. Now it’s become a hobby.

2.  What is your deepest fear?
Oh, that’s a deep question. I have way more insecurities than I should, but a big one is rejection.

3.  What was the first thing you ever wrote/created?
I started drawing when I was about two, but my first creative writing piece was from when I was eight. It was a journal entry from my cat’s perspective It’s pretty funny even now!

4.  What is your most prized possession?
Probably my laptop or my Bible. But I have a Bible on my laptop, so probably my laptop.

5.  What is number one on your bucket list?
Go to Scotland and find my great grandparent’s home!

6.  Coke or Pepsi?
Coke! I was raised in a Coca-Cola loving family, so it’s sort of ingrained in me now. But I still enjoy a good Pepsi from time to time.

7.  What is your favorite historical time period?
It’s a tie between the French Revolution and the later Victorian era.

8.  What inspires you?
Life constantly inspires me! Life itself is beautiful and fantastic, and most of the scenarios in my stories are at very least inspired by true events.

9.   If you saw a crime in progress, would you put yourself in jeopardy or seek help/call 911?
I would probably try to do both. The better question is which one I would do first, I guess.

10.  If there was one thing in your life you could re-do, what would it be?
As many bad things that happened that I could change, I don’t think I would change anything. I am a firm believer in the butterfly effect. Who can say what would happen if I had just changed one tiny thing? I might accidentally start World War 3!

11.  What do you hope people get out of your blog?
I want them to be able to think and laugh, basically.
