BEDIO: Sunshine Blogger Award

As a Bookshop affiliate, I get a small commission if you purchase anything through the book links in this post.

Hey everyone, I hope you’ve been having a great weekend! 😊

Last week, Riddhi B, from Whispering Stories, nominated me and 10 other bloggers for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

You can go check out her post, and the other bloggers she nominated β˜€ right here β˜€

Thank you again for the nomination Riddhi, and sorry for taking so long to post my response! I got a little caught up in my Banned Books Week Posts πŸ˜…

If you don’t know what The Sunshine Blogger Award is, it is given to those who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.


How Does It Work?

  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
  • Answer the 11 questions sent by the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Here are my answers to the 11 questions I was given:

When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging in March of 2019, so I’ve been at this for about a year and a half now! I originally started because I wanted to start publishing more of my writing online and share my thoughts on what I’ve been reading. My ex and his family encouraged me to start blogging, and now here I am πŸ‘Œ

What is your favorite thing about blogging?

Coming up with new ideas and creating posts, it’s just another way for me to express myself through writing!

What is your least favorite thing about blogging?

Coming up with new ideas… πŸ˜… It can be fun when you’re on a creative streak and have things you want to write about, but when you’re in a creative slump… blogging can get really tough

What are your hobbies besides blogging?

I like baking, reading, hiking/walking around in nature (probably a weird way to phrase that, but I couldn’t think of a better way to describe itπŸ˜‚), going to new places (which hasn’t been very high on my list right now with COVID and everything) and I’ve been getting back into origami. I’ve also been kind of obsessed with Animal Crossing, because… I mean why not? It’s super cute!

What would the title of your biography/biopic be?

Reading and Writing Through Life

I know it’s my website URL, but there’s a reason why I picked it!

Some advice for people who have just started blogging?

Don’t be afraid to share your content on social media, or to interact with other bloggers in the community! It’s all part of the fun of blogging is to hear what others have to say about whatever topic you’re discussing, so don’t hesitate to make those connections!

Describe yourself in seven words? (Cause it’s the seventh question)

Ohhh I always struggle with these types of questions πŸ˜† (seriously, this is the last question I answered out of all 11 questions)

Weird, introverted, creative, animal lover, sarcastic, organized (well, sometimes), funny (at least, I find myself quite amusing, if I do say so myself)

Dogs or Cats?

This is a tough question for me, because I grew up with cats so they’ll always have a special place in my heart, but dogs are just so fun and loving! I’ll have to go with dogs though, if I have to choose 🐢

A TV show you can binge-watch forever?

Doctor Who… there are so many episodes that I haven’t even seen yet, so I could keep myself occupied for quite sometime

A song you relate to? / A song you will never get tired of listening?

This is also a tough one because this constantly changes depending on my mood/current phase in life πŸ˜‚

Right now, I would say “The Change” by Jojo (and no… I’m not talking about JoJo Siwa). It’s actually a new song that was released last Friday, and I love her voice, especially in a ballad like this πŸ‘Œ As far as actually relating to the song, I think this lyric sums it all up perfectly:

Change is gonna find me but it’s up to me, all on me to make that change.

You can check out the song here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPm7upLFUWQ

Who is your favorite author?

Kristin Hannah probably, I really loved Firefly Lane, Winter Garden, and (of course) The Nightingale


Here are my 11 questions:

  1. When did you start blogging and why?
  2. What’s your favorite genre for books/movies?
  3. What is one piece of advice you could give to new bloggers?
  4. Since it’s October, what’s your favorite Halloween/horror movie?
  5. What do you like most about blogging?
  6. What is the most challenging part about blogging?
  7. What are three things you like to do outside of blogging?
  8. In the spirit of Halloween, what’s your favorite costume? It can either be something that you have dressed up as, or want to dress up as in the future.
  9. Favorite animal?
  10. What is one place you want to visit in your life?
  11. One last Halloween-esque question: What’s your favorite candy?


Here are my nominations:
