  3. Cats and Life – This is a cat blog and has a lot of good qualities for a pet blog and that is why I’m spotlighting this blog.
  4. RoseyToesSews – This blog is mostly about 8 kitties but the reason I’m spotlighting this blog is because of the tips.

MY 1ST UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD

 

 

Hello Friends, I wanted to send my gratitude to PENandPAPER who nominated EVERYONE because every blogger is unique in their own way. PENandPAPER has helped me greatly especially when I get frustrated with my blogs. Telling me that my blogs are unique in their own way made me realize I don’t need to be perfect. I just do my best on my blogs and suggest everyone do the same thing. If you’d like to meet this amazing blogger who has an amazing site and is helpful to, please click here. I also suggest you follow this blog if you’re looking for a good blog to follow. The link of the blogger that showed love to me for blogging is THE UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD

RULES FOR THE UNIQUE BLOGGER AWARD:

  1. Share the link of the blogger who has shown love to you.
  2. Answer their Questions.
  3. In the spirit of sharing love and solidarity with our blogging family, nominate 8-13 people for the same award.
  4. Ask them 3 questions.

QUESTIONS ASKED BY PENandPAPER:

  1. What is the inspiration behind your blog content? When I started WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I started it because I wanted to have fun and see what blogging is all about. I liked the fact of self publishing my posts, stories, pictures and more on my site and sharing them with others. I also like meeting other bloggers.
  2. What is your favorite time of the year and why? My favorite time of the year has probably got to be December 19 to the 25th because that’s the timeline when my birthday comes and I just love Christmas because that’s when Christ was born and started his mission to die for our sins.
  3. What is your favorite book and why? (Or movie if you don’t read) Like PENandPAPER, the Bible is my favorite book too. The Bible is a good book to read and it’s a best seller. As for worldly books, I like most mystery/suspense books mostly because they have you on the edge of your seat guessing who done it. If I didn’t read, the movies I would choose is Dirty Dancing and Grease. Why? They’re good movies.

MY NOMINEES ARE:

I follow several good blogs and can’t just choose 8-13 blogs and after seeing that PENandPAPER nominated Everyone because every blogger is unique in their own way, I thought I would do the same thing. So my nominees are EVERYONE.
