I was nominated for the MakeItUltra™Blogger Award by one of my favorite fellow bloggers and friend Kerry over at Postcards from Kerry.
Kerry is a storyteller of her life, her travels, a funny entertaining person and certainly a flirt. Please take time to visit her blog, you will not be disappointed.
The MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award is an award given to bloggers by bloggers for quality content, originality and presentation. The intention of this award is to encourage connectivity and support in the blogging community and to increase exposure for individual bloggers.
If you have been nominated for the MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award and choose to accept it, write a blog post about the MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award in which you:
– Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog. Take a moment to positively promote the person who nominated you.
– Display the award on your blog by adding it to your post and/or displaying it using a widget on your page (Save the image to your computer and upload it to your blog post). Don’t forget to use the tag #MyUltraAward when you make your post!
– Answer the following MakeItUltra™ Blogger Award questions.
– What is your name?
Terry, that is all I am providing as it took almost a year to reveal just my first name. I need some sense of privacy in my life even though it is my life this blog is about.
– Where are you from?
I was born in Texas and lived there all my life until my recent move here to Florida about 7 weeks ago.
– How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
A little over 16 months ago was the beginning of my blog. I started because I felt a need to record my life in writing; a book was my choice, though I do not know where to start with that – so this blog was born.
– What are you most proud of?
I am proud of many things; me overcoming a major depression in my twenties, my sons, my husband, but most of all – my ability to get up each and every day to fight the struggles that at times want to defeat me.
– What are your blogging goals?
When I started my blog, my original goals were to post every single day and to reveal this blog to my family after 1 year of its existence. I achieved my goal for the first year to post every day and made this a goal again for another year. My goal to reveal this blog to my family has not happened yet. Why? I am still scared to reveal many parts of me to my family, it is easy to reveal me to you, but to my family I feel a sense that they may be disappointed in me.
– How do you spend your free time?
Currently I spend my free time writing posts, reading other blogger’s posts, resting quite a bit – especially the days after chemo and taking walks when I feel the energy.
Nominate 1-8 blogs that you feel deserve the award and provide links.
Just as Kerry did, I am nominating just one person. I have many wonderful followers and I appreciate each and every one of you. I have nominated many of you for other awards and try to spread the awards around as much as I can. So my choice is a lady who I feel I have a connection with in a cosmic sort of way. I nominate my friend Osyth over at Half Baked in Paradise.
Once again, thank you Kerry for this nomination – you are my #1 girlfriend!
