THANK YOU for the Sunshine Blogger Nomination!

Thank you so much to my fellow bloggers “Reluctant Preachers Daughter and Aspi.Blog” for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award!

If you are not following them, you can read their articles by clicking the provided links above.

Since I have been nominated by more than one person more than once and I am attempting to make this short while following the rules, I will post questions by them and also myself within the 11. And I will answer them as well.

  1. How do you promote your blog? My blog is promoted on Instagram in the bio, it’s on Twitter, and a Facebook page I have created. Which those quick links can also be found on my main page by clicking their logo for those who are interested.
  2. What has been your greatest recent challenge? The greatest challenge for me at this season in life has been coming to accept that I have young adult children that still need my support on most every level only because of their mental health challenges. This was not anything I had ever expected my life would become when I decided to birth children and begin a family. But I love them dearly.
  3. How do you go about creating a blog post? I choose to write articles that are relatable and my own truths from personal experiences within my own daily life.
  4. What would your dream home look like? My dream home would include a bowling alley for my son, an in-home theater for him as well, and an indoor swimming pool with a sauna, hot tub, with a 3 car garage and a lot of land with a privacy fence and gated security entry. And a greenhouse, with fruit trees.
  5. What do you enjoy most about blogging? I enjoy getting feedback from others and seeing that I was able to inspire or enlighten someone else.
  6. What helps you get through a rough day? Prayer, meditation, listening to songs that inspire me and writing.
  7. What brought you to begin blogging? Because I used to post a lot of long posts on my Facebook years ago and I found alot of readers were inspired by them as well as suggesting that I should seriously write a book. So I chose to begin a blog first.
  8. What is your passion in life? To advocate for individuals who are living with mental illnesses and other developmental delays. To write a book about my experiences with these challenges to educate and encourage others who are uninformed or discouraged.
  9. What do you do for self-care? I see my own therapist when needed so I don’t overwhelm my spouse or others.
  10. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I would like to go to Seoul, since that is where I was born.
  11. If you could tell one thing about yourself that most people don’t know, what would it be? I was adopted and I wish I could locate my birth mother.

Here are the rules:

• Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to him/her.

• Answer the 11 questions provided by the blogger who nominated you.

• Nominate other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.

• Notify the nominees by commenting on one of their blog posts.

• List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post.

For this award I’m nominating these four bloggers.

It is with much gratitude that I am thankful for the nomination of this Sunshine Blogger Award by fellow bloggers.

Gratefully yours,

Erika – Mother and Advocate
