One Lovely Blog Award

blogging, miscellany, One Lovely Blog, On My Kindle

Back in September, Mariam from M & M Mariam Books nominated On My Kindle for the One Lovely Blog Award. I was pretty new to book blogging, so it was nice to receive some encouragement by a fellow book blogger.

Since I was a bit behind on my reviews, I let Mariam know that I would acknowledge the award on my blog as soon as I was caught up. It has been a few months, but better late than never!


Here are the rules for nomination:
  • You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  • You must list the rules and display the award.
  • You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  • You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
  • You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you. (If you don’t want to follow me, it’s okay. I’m just trying to spread some love to other bloggers!)

Seven Facts About Me

Let's get to the good stuff; the part where I try to figure out 7 facts about myself that I have not already written about before:

1) I was diagnosed with PTSD in April 2015 after an incident at work with a supervisor who implied that I was incompetent; even though I was performing duties above my pay scale.

2) I am crazy about The Simpsons. I currently own 13 seasons of the show. I would own 14 seasons; however, every time I buy season 10 the second disc in the season is defective. 

3) I am trying to quit smoking by vaping. The people who say that vaping is like smoking are stone-cold liars.

4) Besides nicotine, I am addicted to coffee and chocolate. You do not want to speak to me before I have had my first cup of coffee in the morning.

5) I do not have children. I have miscarried twice, but never gave birth to a child. Surprisingly, I am okay with not having kids.

6) I love incense. When I lived in New Mexico, I used to buy handmade incense from pot smokers. They made it to cover up the scent of weed; I bought it because I figured if it could hide the smell of weed, it could hide almost any stench.

7) I loved reading the Cherry Ames: Student Nurse and Vicki Barr Flight Stewardess series when I was younger. I also liked Nancy Drew, but thought that Encyclopedia Brown was a smug little know-it-all.


I decided to pay what Mariam did for me forward and focus mostly on new book bloggers. Book blogging can be overwhelming for some people when they first start, and it can be tough to stick with; especially when life happens and you have fallen behind on your reading list.
