Mystery Blogger Award

mystery-blogger-awardA heartfelt thanks to Clive for nominating me. {I think my Gravatar is fixed now!} He’s helping our corner of the mental health community come together in some innovative ways. He’s an author and blogs at Bipolar? It’s not all doom and gloom

My Nominees and Questions are below…

Three Things About Me:

  • There was never a time when I didn’t want to be a writer… or live in the woods.
  • My inner editor/proofreader works overtime.
  • IRL: I’m not quite five foot tall; but my mouth makes up for it.

1: what inspired you to start blogging? Sometimes I’m so introverted, it’s painful. I blog to challenge myself. Toss in a few unspoken rules. Put these little snippets ‘out there.’ Play with the language. The rhythm. Chronicle the stories and lessons I’d like to remember. Personal writing- in a personable way.

2: where do you see yourself in five years? Is this a job interview?? Ha!

3: apart from writing, what else do you like doing? Hiking, camping, cooking and assorted crafts. Visiting family & friends.

4: what’s your favourite quote? So many!!

  • “A story is a way to say something that can’t be said any other way, and it takes every word in the story to say what the meaning is.” -Flannery O’Connor
  • “I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity.” – Edgar Allan Poe
  • “It’s hard to be funny when you have to be clean.” Mae West
  • …And whatever Stephen King said about writing a million words of crap.

5: what is your guilty pleasure? [Inhaling Chocolate while…] Listening to classic audiobooks [H.P. Lovecraft!] or true crime -narrated with a British or Irish accent.

  1. Where is your favorite location in the world? Why?
  2. Do you have a daily routine, semi-set, or wing it?
  3. When you were a child, who told the best stories?
  4. What 4 items are always on your desk?
  5. What was the last show you binge-watched?

Thanks everyone for stopping by today! I have several new followers in the past few days. Grateful. Humbled. Still a tad perplexed/intimidated by these online activities. Though, I’m excited to go visit more bloggers and have a sense of community. You? – Grandma Auburn {aka Jen!} – My Bi-Polar Backstory


The creator of this award,  Okoto Oke Enigma, whose blog site is www.okotoenigmasblog.com

WHY DID I CREATE THE AWARD?
I created the award because there are a lot of amazing blogs out there that haven’t been discovered, yet. And, most of these blogs deserve recognition. For that reason, I decided to create my own award; and nominate people who can also nominate others; and so on. This is one of the best ways to create a friendly community and build a link between bloggers in the blogosphere; as everyone gets nominated and they too can spread the fun by nominating more people for the award. Here are the Rules for the Award Nominees.

The mystery blogger award

I decided to call the award “Mystery Blogger Award.” Why? Because the meaning of my name, “Enigma” is “mystery.” So basically, it’s named after myself; the creator. Plus, I think it’s cool because there are so many blogs that are still a mystery to us; and when we get to know them, it’s divine! And we find friends where we least expect.

WHAT IS MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD?
Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.
