very-inspiring-bloggerI got some more recognition from Amy, she’s so nice! If you haven’t already you need to check her out. We always have good conversations, so if you like my blog you’ll love hers!

The guidelines for this award are:

1.Thank and link to 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.Proudly display the award logo on your blog and follow the blogger who nominated you.


Fun Facts about me! I always have a hard time coming up with stuff like this, we’ll see how this goes.

1.) I think it’s pretty obvious that most of my blogging community is about books and writers. I am currently in the process of writing my first ever book – and I am starting to think it’s going to take me a lot longer that I had originally thought, but I’m also learning that that’s pretty normal.

2.) I’m currently an Archivist (which I have been told is a pretty awesome title – I think I agree) at a museum out here in Hawaii. I’m pretty passionate about the museum world, and my dream job would be to be the curator of a Smithsonian museum.

3.) I got a pony for Christmas when I was 5, he’s 29 this year, and the cutest horse you’ve ever seen (that’s him in my picture!).

4.) I love to read, I’m sure you’ve picked up on that if you follow this blog, but it can be a problem sometimes. I have a slightly obsessive personality, and if I am into a book that I really like, I literally can’t get it out of my head and will spend every spare minute reading – but there are plenty of other worse things to be addicted to so . . .

5.) Speaking of my slightly obsessive personality, it can also make me a bit of a fangirl, which my husband uses to make fun of me relentlessly.

6.) I’ve lived in nine different states and one other country, following my dad and now my husband to where the Army sends us, and I love it! I get bored after about 2 or 3 years in one spot.

7.) I love blogging! I as pretty hesitant to start one because it seems like everyone has one and there isn’t anything new to talk about. But once I started it, to learn more about the writing process and build up a network of like minded people, I really do enjoy it. I love being able to write completely biased things about what I think and talk to other bloggers about it. It’s such a unique way to discuss things and connects you to people you wouldn’t really meet other ways.


Ok, that was probably harder than it should have been, but oh well. Here are my nominees, there aren’t 15, but I’m not that popular yet:

– She already has one, but Victoria Davenport. She and I were in the same cabin during Camp NaNoWriMo, and the segments of her WIP she has posted have really impressed.

Jennifer Austin, she has some really interesting perspectives on books, and she’s getting into the final stages of her book so she posts tons of useful information all the time!

– Talk about book inspiration, KED has just published a book! I have bought it and it’s on my TBR list.

– And I have to get the word out about one of my grad school buddies, Janelle and her blog. It’s all about the lesser known facts about popular history. I know my history discussions haven’t seemed to gather as much interest as I had hoped, but if you have been enjoying them than you will love her blog!

    • Thanks! Ya, I left my horses with my parents in TX, and it sucks not being able to walk out the back door to the barn and be able to ride whenever I want, but I have found a good stable out here to ride at, and I just got a new saddle!


  1. I know how hard figuring out “interesting” things about yourself can be haha. “Archivist” *is* a really bad ass title! So, I have to ask… if your horse is in Texas with your parents, and you’re an Army brat… Fort Hood? Yes?


    • Yes an Army Brat, but oddly enough my dad was never stationed to Hood. He was the PMS at Texas A&M (where we both went to school) while I was there, and then he was at Ft. Sam Houston. He just retired now and they are in Bryan and my dad works in College Station at a disaster relief training place.
