Black Cat Blue Sea Award: Part Dos

Hi everyone, yesterday I was nominated by Lia from Lost in a Story to do the Black Cat Clue Sea Award. I wasn’t going to do it, since I’ve done it and blogmas, but Lia gave me a bonus questions having to deal with my blog title so I figured I would go on and do the award anyway. Let’s get to it.

The Rules:

  1. Anybody nominated can nominate eight other bloggers.
  2. The nominee answers three questions posed by the nominator.
  3. The questions you ask while nominating can be any three questions.
  4. If any of the questions asked are offensive or the nominee simply does not want to answer, the nominee does not have to answer them to earn the award.

My answers to Lia’s Questions:

  1. What are you most passionate about? I don’t really think there is one thing that shines about above the most, so nothing I guess
  2. Have you ever considered stopping blogging? And why? I have taking blogging hiatuses in the past where I thought I’d never blog again, but I miss it. I miss the people, I miss the feedback, I miss writing. With blogging, it gives me an excuse to write, it makes me write, if you will. When I don’t have a blog, I don’t write as much, and that in itself is a reason to not stop blogging.
  3. What is your favourite hobby? Probably writing
  4. Bonus Questions: What does your blog name mean and how do you pronounce it? Okay, so my blog name is Live Pulchritudinously. Pulchritude is just a synonym for beautiful. So my blog name means Live Beautifully. Pulchritudinous is pronounced (pull-cri(like Chris but without the s)-tude-in-ous)

My Questions:

  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What is your favorite holiday?
  3. What is/was your favorite part of school?

I’m not going to nominate anyone for this because most of the people I woul have nominated for this has either already won it or are doing blogmas and probably have no free blogging time. If you want to do this, please do as I am curious as to what the answers to te questions I asked are.

Until tomorrow’s Blogmas post

Mystery Blogger Award… Round 2

Hi everyone, before I get into this post, I may or may not be doing the final prompt for NaBloPoMo which is: Have you chosen a word of the year for yourself for 2017? What is it? If not, what words would you consider? I may do it but I’m in a weird funk today and don’t want it to be a shitty post and I was already planning on doing something like this next month… but we’ll see. Anyway, if not… NaBloPoMo was a total success and I posted every single day and some days twice. I am not guaranteeing I will keep this up forever but it was nice to have some consistency.
