Thank you for the Sunshine Blogger Award

Sunshine Blogger Award

Thank you for the Sunshine Blogger Award” by Joan Y. Edwards


Melanie Robertson King nominated me for a Sunshine Blogger Award. Wow! How cool is that!

This Award gives bloggers a chance to celebrate other bloggers who are creative and bring positivity to the blogging community.

Part One of the challenge is to answer the questions Melanie sent me.

Part Two is to nominate eleven other bloggers or as many as you wish and send them your own set of 11 questions. My questions for my nominees are at the end of this post.

Part One

The answers to Melanie’s questions for me:

  1. If you won the lottery, how would you spend your winnings? If I won the lottery, I would pay off the mortgage on our house, I would share 10% with charities. I would take a trip to Italy and Canada. I would invest other money in plans that would give me a lot of interest. 
  2. Are you a night owl or a morning person? I am a night owl.

  3. PC or Mac. Which camp are you in? I have always had a pc. My favorite is Hewlett Packard. I have had 3 or 4 of them.

  4. Which is your favourite blogging platform? WordPress, Blogspot, etc. My favorite blogging platform is WordPress. I used blogspot a short time, but I prefer WordPress. 

  5. What is your favourite summer past-time and why? I love going to the beach with my daughters and their families. I also enjoy family reunions.

  6. Do you prefer print or ebook and why? I prefer print books of novels. If it’s a book to learn about writing skills, I prefer an e-book because I can zoom in and make the print larger.

  7. What is your favourite food and why? I love hamburgers. It’s fun to eat them with pickles, lettuce, and a slice of tomato. I could eat a hamburger every day for a week and not get tired of it.

  8. Are you a fitness freak, couch potato or somewhere in between? I’m between a fitness freak and a couch potato.  I’d be good for more to  do more walking. 

  9. Share a single photograph that depicts who you are (adventurous, laid back, etc.)

  10. You have the chance to take a once in a lifetime train trip. Which one would you choose and why? I’d take the train trip across Canada to Vancouver. Melanie Robertson-King took it and I loved the description of the places she stopped at and saw on the way. It sounds adventurous.

  11. When you’re watching TV, do you prefer sitcoms or dramas and why? I prefer to watch stories with happy endings and not an abundance of violence. I enjoy light westerns, mysteries, Columbo, Hallmark Channel romance stories, and romantic-comedies.

  2. If I could ask one question of an important leader of a country now or in the past, who would you choose, and what would you ask him/her?
  3. Which is your favorite kind of food: vegetables, fruits, or meats? What’s your favorite dish?

  1. Very serious answers, Joan! I’d not have been able to stick with them like that.
    Thank you for not putting me on your list of 11. I have quite enough to do!

    1. Dear Bob,
      I knew that Melanie had given you a Sunshine Award, so I didn’t want to overwhelm you. Plus you don’t have to blog about the award if you don’t choose to. It’s a choice, you know. I’m glad you liked my answers to Melanie’s questions. Enjoy your day. Thanks for responding!

      Never Give Up

  2. Wow! Thanks for the nomination, Joan. Some days I feel like sunshine, some days clouds, but even in the clouds, I smile on. I’ll answer the questions on my blog later this week.

    1. Dear Gretchen,
      Thanks for writing. You are welcome for the Sunshine Blogger Award. None of us feel totally positive-minded every day. I’ve known you for a long time and you’re right, you smile even during the dark cloud times. That’s a gift I treasure.

  3. This was fun! I learned more about you and enjoyed that. I’m right there with you with the lottery question– if I won I’d pay off my house, give to charity, and travel! 🙂 And I’m also a night owl. Fun blog! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Dear Shawn,
      Thank you for writing. I’m glad to know that we are both night owls and that if we won the lottery we would both pay off our mortgage and give to charity.
      I hope you are doing well.

  4. Thank you Joan for the Sunshine Blogger’s Award. I’m honored especially since I have a hard time using writing time for blogging. Therefore, when I do blog, I try to talk or share something that is inspirational, informative or just plane entertaining.

    Hugs to you for your amazing blog.

    1. Dear Sandra,
      Thanks for writing. You are very welcome for the Sunshine Blogger Award! It is my pleasure to give it to you. You do a great job of sharing things that are inspirational, informative, and entertaining. Enjoy being you! You are awesome!
