[Miscellaneous] – The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store my random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. It’s more for consistency sake so I can have an itty-bitty picture to follow suit with the post.

What’s Miscellaneous and Random Today?

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

VeryInspiringBlogAward

The Award Rules:
1. Thank and link the amazing person who nominated you.
2. List the rules and display the award.
3. Share seven facts about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other amazing blogs and comment on their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
5. Optional: Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.

Initial Thoughts:

The Very Inspiring Blogger Award has been making noticeable rounds in the community (or the miniscule community that I know of at least) recently and people are apparently inspired by my words (or bloggers just ran out of nominees and if so: THEN I BEAT THE SYSTEM). Either way, I will continue to laugh at the thought of being inspirational. But first and foremost, I’d like to thank these people for nominating me for said award:

(A preemptive thanks. She’s apparently nominating me)

If you thought I was inspirational, well… shit, you better go check them out instead because they inspire…my inspiring…to inspire…?—that’s trippy.

The Facts

Now here’s where I’m supposed to tell you 7 things about how to live life on the edge as an inspirational...ist. And since I don’t curate content that often (suffice to say I don’t have regular scheduled posts to qualify for this award—re: beat the system comment), let’s buff this post up so you can learn more about this boymanthing behind thoughts and afterthoughts. So as a matter of bonus, let’s narrow (or expand?) these 7 facts to somewhat fit the category of the five main senses: sight, hear, taste, smell, touch – because I can…and because you, the reader, apparently find enjoyment in my keyboard smashing…

[Miscellaneous] – Liebster Award

Miscellaneous is the tagline to store my random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. It’s more for consistency sake so I can have an itty-bitty picture to follow suit with the post.

What’s Random Today?LiebsterAward

The Liebster Award recognizes and helps discover new blogs. The rules are (generally) as follows:

1) Link back to the person who nominated you.
2) Answer 11 questions from the individual who nominated you. 3) Nominate 11 new bloggers and come up with your own 11 questions. You cannot nominate the person who nominated you. 4) Inform your nominee on being nominated.

(I think this is a variation because the original also has you listing 11 random facts about yourself… but nobody got time for that.)

Initial Thoughts:

But really… a Liebster Award, huh? That’s cool I guess. My takeaway is basically, TL;DR: “here’s some prompts, please rant away.” Well thank you kind sir, I will. You have been warned for this extremely long and potentially pointless rant post.

But first, here’s an amazing sales pitch (but not really):

I was nominated by Books and Iced Coffee so you can do whatever you want with that. She was also kind enough to ask me the same questions as the person before asked — so I’m shaming her for rehashing these questions (although call me a hypocrite now when I’m too lazy to generate my own list of questions).
