(C) Stephen W. Buchanan 2019

I’m still too new to blogging to understand what it means to be nominated for an award, but it feels very nice! Thank you Taylor Grace of the Broken Inside of Me blog for nominating me for The Real Neat Blog Award! Please go read her blog and enjoy the interesting, challenging and fun thoughts, stories and poems she posts.

Awards seem to come with rules, at least this one did, so let’s get to them:

The Rules:

  1. Display the Award Logo – Complete
  2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and post a link to their blog – Complete
  3. Answer the questions of the one who nominated you – Complete – See Below
  4. Nominate 7-10 bloggers – Complete – See Below
  5. Ask them seven questions – Complete – See Below

The Questions I have been provided for answering as This or That?

  1. Ice cream or Yogurt – Ice cream. But Ben and Jerry’s Cherry Garcia FroYo is what I get for home to try and be a little more healthy.
  2. Desktop or Laptop For Writing – Laptop, though my phone is my first choice since it is handy more often when I have an idea or time.
  3. Rock or Country Music – Rock, of the alternative variety.
  4. Sunrise or Sunset – Sunset, because sunrise, though pretty, is usually too early.
  5. Traditional or Self Published – It’s hard to tell them apart these days, and I’ll read whichever one an author I like chooses to use. If I ever decide I want to publish, which right now isn’t something I ever plan on entertaining, it would probably be Self Published.
  6. Halloween or Easter – Halloween. I don’t like getting dressed up, but it is more fun.
  7. All Inclusive Cruise or Fly to destination vacay – I’ve never been on a cruise, so I’ll have to say Fly to.

My nominations:

I get the pleasure and honor of nominating others for this award, and it’s hard to limit the choices. For those nominated it is not something you have to accept (or even acknowledge) if you don’t want to, but it is my way of letting people know I think you have a blog worth reading.

My questions to you are about your favorite things

  1. What’s your favorite book?
  2. What’s your favorite movie?
  3. What’s your favorite song?
  4. What’s your favorite holiday?
  5. Where’s your favorite space to be?
  6. Where’s your favorite place to visit?
  7. What’s your favorite age?

That should cover it. For those who decide to join in I hope you enjoy. For those who don’t, I hope you keep posting to your blog for me to read!

  2. Thank you Stevie B! Love your work too! Never miss a post 😉

    As for your questions, I don’t have favorite things, at least not anymore. Maybe I’ll be able to answer that list on my death bed or see the answers flash before my eyes as the bus hits me 🤣

    The best I can do is answer aged 17 (a long time ago) when I did still have favorite things.

    1. List of seven by Mark Frost
    2. Dark City
    3. Part of me by Tool
    4. Brisbane to see Mudvayne play live.
    5. Empty bathtub. Loved the acoustics. Used to read, write and listen to music there.
    6. Melbourne with friends
    7. 17, I guess.

    I don’t do the awards thing but I’ll put a personalised thank you on my site. Look out for it 👍

    1. You are welcome, Murdoch Mousie! I don’t remember much from age 17 anymore, let alone favorite things, except that was the age I was when I met my wife. So it was a good age now that I think about it. Thanks for causing me to. I’m glad you played. 🙂
