Sunshine Blogger Award

“We have different gifts according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith.” Romans 12:6

I was nominated by my friend Beverly of
becomingtheoilandwine.wordpress.com for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

Thank you Beverly, I love your writing, God bless you and your family!

Beverly ministers the Word of God with power and authority using Scripture, personal testimonies and some lighthearted jokes.

She also shares her daughter, Nickay’s writings, I appreciate Beverly promoting and encouraging the next generation. Beverly’s blog posts are always uplifting and encouraging.

Please visit her blog and show some love.

What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?

“The Blogosphere community holds several awards that bloggers use to nominate a blog in appreciation for its creative, inspiring, or motivational content.”

“The award also helps other bloggers receive recognition and free exposure for their blogs.”

Award’s Rules

There are some basic rules to follow if you decide to participate:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog so everyone can visit.
  • Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.
  • Notify the nominees by commenting on their blog post.
  • List the rules and display the Award logo on your blog post.

Eleven questions from Ms. Beverly.

1. How old is your blog now?

My blog is about three years old.

2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I enjoy encouraging others with the Word of God. I also like to meet new bloggers, reading and participating in this community.

3. How important do you think Social Media is for the success of a blog?

Somewhat, because any one blog’s subject is searchable. If you invest time on the other social networks they will provide you.

4. How would you define a successful blog? In other words, what do think a successful blog looks like?

A successful blog has good content, interacts with other bloggers and is consistent.

5. Describe your feelings when you received your first blogging award nomination.

I feel good especially because Beverly who nominated me is very generous to others besides being an excellent writer.

6. Have you ever thought about monetizing your blog ?

Yes, but I removed the pay button to go farther in God’s grace.

7. If so, what do you think is the best method of monetizing? 

I have used Paypal

8. What kind of post do you find easiest or most enjoyable to write?

When a Bible verse jumps out or the Lord speaks to me I believe I am supposed to share this so God’s powerful word can speak to others.

9. What do you think is best, long or short posts?

Short posts are my style.  At times I write a longer than usual one because there’s so much to say.  Often I content myself with knowing only God’s word is complete and I will never fully teach a thought in a blog.  I just don’t think it’s possible.

Many gifted writers post longer blogs and that is their calling, I really appreciate their dedication.

10. Funny/Weird Question: What is the weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

I tried to eat a bug, when we were children.

11. What is your favourite way to unwind after a hectic day?

Blogging refreshes me.

I chose to nominate eleven bloggers who have recently followed my blog in the last few months.

1. Tonya LaLonde

2. My Life in Our Father’s World

3. Meeting Jesus With Donna Stearns

4. Jennifer Arimborgo

5. The Father’s Feet 

6. For The Love Of Christ

7. Sisters helping sisters

8. Laura Bon

9. Our Given Purpose

10. TLP

11. Jovial

These are just some of the excellent bloggers’ posts that are encouraging and truly a blessing.
