Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award recognizes women bloggers from all around the world. There is no pressure to accept the award. The rules for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award are as follows:
- Thank the person who nominated you for the award!
- Add the Sisterhood of World Bloggers Award logo to your post and blog.
- Answer 10 questions provided to you by the person who nominated you.
- Provide 10 questions of your own for your nominees to answer. (I feel tired and ovewhelmed, so I’m asking three deep, meaningful questions.)
- Nominate [up to] 10 bloggers for the award and notify them. (Again, I feel tired and ovewhelmed, so I’m nominating only six blogs.)
Questions for me to answer:
- If you could change one thing about the world what would it be? Open everyone’s hearts to love.
- What is your favorite way to chill out? Read in bed before I go to sleep at night.
- What is your favourite food? Chocolate.
- What is your favourite song? I love jazz standards. No favorite comes to mind.
- What annoys you the most? Intolerance. I’m intolerant of intolerance.
- What is your favourite month? I have no favorite month.
- What is your favourite season? I have no favorite season, and live in an almost seasonless climate.
- Are you religious? I believe in God as love, have attended seminary, but do not attend church. I am a skeptical believer.
- What star sign are you? I am a Leo. Although I do not believe in astrology, my sign suits me. I am proud to be a Leo and have always identified with big cats.
- What is your favourite quote? I started an Internet search for a quote and found it too overwhelming. I have no favorite quote off the top of my head.
Questions for nominees to answer:
- Why do you blog?
- What brings you joy?
- What is your goal for the next three to five years?
