My bucket list


Bloggers Recognition Award

  6. Comment on each blog and let them know you have nominated them and provide a link to the post you created. (not doing)

How my blog started:

My blog started because I had always wanted to have one. I had tried several times bit never kept going, because I was lazy or didn’t feel like writing or lost my motivation. I guess the time wasn’t right. This time, I have posted almost every day since I started and I am absolutely in love with it!

4 pieces of advice to new bloggers:

  1. Treat people with the respect you would expect to be treated with. Always be polite, kind and supportive;
  2. Be present in the community. Follow other blogs, read, like posts, comment and let people know you like their work. Everyone loves positive feedback;
  3. Write about what you love, because it is YOUR blog. You should never write just to please an audience. Be true to yourself and honest and write what you would like to read;
  4. No discrimination. We are all a community and a family and there’s room for all kinds of people.

Three things that motivate me to blog:

  1. How my blog has helped me with my depression and motivated me to live and get better.
  2. The fact that people read and like my blog and my posts and encourage me to keep writing.
  3. My blogging friends, who I adore and love being able to speak to every day. They’ve became an important part of my life.

Three people who motivate me to blog:

One thing I hope I will do to improve the world:

I can’t choose just one thing, but I can promise I will always try my best to make the world a better place, by doing different things and always being willing to help people.

My challenge question:

What would your days look like if time was not an issue?

I would be super productive and work on many projects at the same time, do all my hobbies, read many books and take advantage of my days!

And… I’m done. I’m sure for doing it like this but I have many reasons:

  • There were many Awards to do;
  • Some people tell me they don’t like Award posts and skip them and I don’t want to bore anyone. That’s also why I’m doing no nominations;
  • They are so late. Some of them are weeks old;
  • None of them is my first;

Feel free to consider yourself nominated if you haven’t done one or more of them.

They are my:

The Cramm Award number 4;

Liebster Award number 4;

Blogger Recognition Award 6 and 7;

Mystery Blogger Award 2, 3 and 4;

The Versatile Blogger Award number 2;

The One Lovely Blog Award number 2;

Now you understand why it doesn’t make sense to do each one of them individually, right? I’m sorry to the people who nominated me for not doing a proper post, but I hope you understand!

Thank you so much for all the nominations!

Please make sure to visit all the blogs!!

I’m sorry about the HUGE post. If you finish it, I will send you a big chocolate bar.

  1. Congrats on all those awards!! Good idea doing a bunch in one post like this. 🙂
    OMG! I do the same thing about having to cover my ears when I sleep! Most people think I’m nuts but I’m so afraid of something getting in there. lol It’s rare but you do hear about it happening to people. I love socks too. My feet get so cold so I always sleep with them too! 🙂
    I love pink converse too! I’ve got a hot pink pair of low tops and another hot pink pair of low tops with a black inner lining with cute little skulls on them. I’ve really been wanting a pair of burgundy high tops though. When I was younger I was all about the low tops and now I’m digging the high tops which is funny because my best friend was always into the high tops and now she likes the low tops. It’s funny how we all change over the years. 😛
    Uno is so fun. I got my dad Super Mario themed Uno recently and my family loves to play it. It’s a game we used to play with my grandparents a lot back when they were around so it has a nice nostalgia factor to it, I think. ❤
    Nice choice on Michelle Obama, by the way! 😀 I have a lot of respect for her and really miss having her and her family as our First Family.
    Hope you have a great day!

  2. I read more than one book at once too! You aren’t the only one who dreams about a closet with a million pair of shoes. Uno was my favorite game too! And a big congrats. Loved reading your answers​ 😊

  3. Cheila, you’re my sister and it’s no doubt about it. I am always cold and I never read just one book at the same time as well. At the moment, I am reading like 3 books. And you’re not going to believe this, but I half watched Top Gun recently! ^^ Fun post and I hope you have a great day!
