Nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award

Nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award

I was nominated for a Sunshine Award. 

What a great start to the year! Big thanks to Latte Lindsay who nominated me for this award.

For any of you that don't already know The Sunshine Blogger Award is given to bloggers by other bloggers who are creative, positive, and inspiring.

So sit back and find out some more about me as a blogger with these answers to the Sunshine award questions:

What is the toughest part of blogging for you?
The effort and all the behind the scenes work that goes into every post. A lot of people don't realise it can be a full time job coming up with ideas, maintain the site and social media accounts; time seems to disappear far too quickly.

What is the most enjoyable part?
When you complete your new blog post and you get some great comments, especially with my blog when people message me to say I helped with their job search. That's why I do it and it makes it all worth it!

Is there something that keeps you going through tough times?
I love working for myself so why moan about a small bit of work when it is all going to benefit me in the long run! I can't wait until I can say I do this full time.

What’s your favourite quote?
I love motivational quotes, I actually have two posts dedicated to them on my blog with a third in the writing but if I had to narrow it down it would be:
"Out of difficult comes opportunity" - Albert Einstein

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Tough one as I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eating, the plainer the better unfortunately. Food is definitely not something where I go out of my comfort zone.  

Besides blogging, what else do you enjoy?
If I get free time it's all about friends and family, spending time with my nieces or nephews or have a drink or three with close friends!
This year though I am committed to travelling more, at least three holiday need to be on the cards.

Would you rather fly or sail somewhere?
Definitely fly, a lot quicker and no sea sickness, although I've got to say I hate taking off on a flight. 
My dream flight right now would be jetting off to America!

Who do you admire most and why?
I admire anyone who works and goes for their dreams. People like Steve Jobs or Richard Branson who made it big but take nothing for granted. 

Are you an Apple or an Android person?
Android all the way, I've got to admit I can barely even use an I phone so I just stick to what I know. Sounds strange from a blogger but I could go technology free very easily!

What inspires you?
Achieving goals, see yourself tick things off your checklist and watching something grow. That's how I move towards my goals of being full time self employed. Just start small and enjoy every little achievement. 

Is this your first blogging award?
Yes it is, as a newer blogger the nomination was really exciting!

And that isn't it, I am going to nominated some more great blogs for the Sunshine Blogger Award blog. They are going to be answering the same questions I answered on their blogs and nominate a few more bloggers who they think are worthy so why not check out their posts too!
