Responding to My Sunshine Blogger Award

I’ll admit that I had thought that I had already been nominated for this- but apparently, there are two ‘Sunshine’ awards going around!  Either way, I’m super flattered that Rob over at I Played the Game! tossed one of these my way, as I haven’t followed his blog for a terribly long time but the more I read, the more I find myself both relating and coming back for more of his work.  I highly recommend checking out what he has to offer over that way.

As with most of these types of awards, the rules follow a pretty straightforward:

  • Thank blogger(s) who nominated you for a blog post and link back to their blog.  (Done, and once again, I suggest you check out his work!)
  • Answer the questions the blogger asked you.
  • Nominate new blogs to receive the award and write them new questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

Before I go on with this, I want to ‘philosophize’ just a bit over why I love peer recognition awards like the one I’m embarking on.  For one, it gives folks who have just recently started a regular routine of reading blogs a few new avenues to check out to look into folks that they can communicate with about their interests and passions.  On another angle, it lets you get to know people, even if it’s on a passing and sometimes comical level.

Okay, that could just be me, but maybe you have strange interests like ‘finding out about people’ like I do!

Anyway- on with the show!
