Dragon’s Loyalty Award!

I was nominated by two lovely bloggers: Ocean Of Fear and Miss Ky and if you haven’t already, go check out these awesome bloggers!

Here’s the rules:

  • Thank the bloggers who nominated you. Thank you!!
  • Put the logo in your post.
  • Post 7 facts about yourself.
  1. I am currently watching Les Miserables. As we speak I am watching this for the first time, and it’s so good! So sad, but I really like it 🙂
  2. I’m starting University this September.  I’m going to be studying Biomedical Science in London, and I feel so unprepared but so excited 🙂
  3. I have a suitcase called Linda. When I was about 10 years old I jokingly called my suitcase Linda and for the past 8 years my parents and brother have just referred to it as Linda. So this is a normal conversation in our house: “Have you got Linda down from the attic?” “Not yet, have you got the ribbon to tie around her so we don’t lose her at the airport?” “Ooh Linda’s a bit dusty isn’t she? We need to remember to get her down from the attic more often and air her out.” My family is weird!
  4. I volunteered for three years. When I was 14 I started volunteering for EACH which is a charity that helps terminally ill children. I worked in a giant factory sorting out donations and packing them into boxes, and you would not believe some of the weird things people donate! (No, we can’t make money off of a giant bag of odd socks!) I had to stop when I was 17 though because I couldn’t manage college, tutoring, work, and volunteering but I really miss it.
  5. I am first aid trained. I know CPR, and basic first aid, and I’ve looked after so many children that I can now handle pretty much every emergency! But seriously guys, if you don’t know CPR or basic first aid (like how to treat burns and tie bandages) then please either take a course, or even look it up online. These are basic skills that I’ve had to use several times, and knowing what to do in an emergency could save someone’s life.
  6. I have lots of pairs of freckles. Most of the freckles I have are in pairs, I have them on my cheek, my wrist, and my elbow and up my arms, but they’re almost always right next to another one which I find cute because I can make smiley faces out of them 🙂
  7. I love socks. I don’t understand why people hate getting socks as presents, I love it! If any of you meet me, bring me socks (preferably new ones :P) and we will be instant friends 🙂

The Sunshine Award!

I want to apologise that it took me so long to do this award post, and also for how long this post will be because I’ve been nominated by four different bloggers!

Here’s the rules:

Questions from Handbook 4 Teens…

  1. What is the hardest thing about being a teen? I think it’s the pressure on us. People tell us to have fun, to live, and to make mistakes… yet they also tell us to be responsible, to be grown up, and to make decisions that will effect us for the rest of our lives! That’s pretty tough.
  2. Do you know how to meditate? Yes. I learnt when I went to therapy. I know a lot of people find therapy relaxing and that’s great, but for me it was awful. It just made me think of all the problems and responsibilities I had and so I started running instead and I love it!
  3. What do you do to relieve stress? I run. Slowly, but I’m still lapping the people who are sitting on their sofa’s watching TV. I also go talk to my friends or my boyfriend and that helps massively.
  4. Do you believe people when they say you can achieve your dreams or do you think it’s BS? I don’t think anyone’s really told me that I can or cannot achieve my dreams. I don’t ever ask. I can do anything I want to, and there’s nothing anyone can say to me to make me think otherwise.
  5.  Apple or Android? Android, and that’s just because I own more Samsung products than Apple.
  6. What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? I would research and make the cure for dementia and Alzheimer’s. That’s the direction I want to take my career and it would be incredible to help improve and save so many people’s lives.
  7. If you had 1 hour in mall where you could pick out anything you wanted, no matter what the price, what would you buy? Can I buy everything? Because that would be awesome! But if I had to buy specifics I would buy lots more Converse because at the moment I only have 3 pairs of shoes, and my pair of Converse are the only ones I wear so it would be nice to have a few more of them 🙂
  8. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla. 100%. I’m not actually a massive fan of chocolate, but I love the smell and taste of vanilla…mmmm 😛
  9. What scares you? Lots of things scare me: dentists, big crowds, public speaking, new people and places, panic attacks, spiders, scary movies, embarrassment, losing friends and family, and death.
  10. What song are you currently obsessed with? A good friend of mine showed me this cover of the Game of Thrones theme song and I love it!
  11. If you could choose a superpower what would it be and why? The ability to control time. How awesome would that be?! I could go back or forward in time, and I could get myself out of a lot of awkward situations!

Questions from New Romantics…

  1. What was the weirdest dream you’ve ever had? Oh gosh, I have several dreams a night and almost all of them are really weird! I thought it was normal to have two or three dreams a night, but apparently not! Since there’s been so many I’ll tell you about the most recent one I had last night. I dreamt that I was at Hogwarts and that I was in that part where Harry’s arm gets broken (well, sort of) and his arm is all floppy. But I also had a disco that night so I was dancing with a floppy arm, almost like this!
  2. Who was on your last call log? My boyfriend, Kyle 🙂
  3. Do you believe in God? No. I have hope that there is Something after we die, but I don’t believe in a God.
  4. Do you believe in love at first site? I love romance, but no I don’t believe in this. How can you love someone the first time you see them? Surely you’re just basing your opinions of that person on their looks, and that’s not love. Love takes time and shouldn’t be based solely on what someone looks like.
  5. What was the book you regretted reading? I was given a book by one of my mum’s work mates, The Road Home by Rose Tremain, and it was awful! It was dirty, had a rubbish storyline, and a main character that was pathetic and annoying.
  6. Would you prefer going to school or being home schooled? Hmm, my school was awful. It was known for its bad behaviour, bad grades, and bad teachers. But I made good friends there and it got me to where I wanted to be, so I guess I would still want to go to school rather than be home schooled.
  7. What is the food you could eat forever and not get tired of it? Sweet and salty popcorn…mmmm!
  8. Would you get a tattoo? I think tattoos can be so beautiful! But I am so indecisive, I could never decide on something to be on my body for the rest of my life.
  9. What is the song stuck in your head right now? I have about 100 songs stuck in my head right now! But one of them is Teenagers by My Chemical Romance.
  10. Do you believe in horoscopes? I love reading them, but take no notice of them. They’re so vague and I’m so cynical, so no I don’t believe them.

Questions from Jamerly…

  1. If you could see anyone for the rest of your life, who would it be? My boyfriend. (Sorry, you guys must get sick of hearing about him!!) In case you haven’t read any of my posts, he’s a sweetheart 🙂
  2. What got you into writing? I wanted to spread positivity and to help others, so if anyone of you need a cheap therapist I’m here for you 🙂
  3. Why do you keep writing? Because of my lovely blogging family! All the support and love I get from you guys is what keeps me going.
  4. What is one item you remember when someone says “childhood” and why? The BFG by Roald Dahl. I was the first person in my class to learn how to read and my childhood was filled with books, but this was always my favourite and I still have my copy in my room.
  5. What song defines your life at the moment? I love so many songs at the moment. My friend sent me this song this morning though and I think it’s something everyone should watch/hear.
  6. If you could be another person (besides yourself) who would you be? I’d be Jennifer Lawrence, she just seems really cool and down to Earth.
  7. What is your perfect date? Stargazing. I love the stars, and I would love it if my boyfriend organised a stargazing date for us! (If you’re reading this Kyle, take note!)
  8. What is your favourite day? My favourite day was the day I met my boyfriend, it was perfect! And also when I got my scholarship for University, that was an amazing day too!
  9. If you could only say one more sentence to your mum, what would it be? “I love you” would probably be a good start. “You’re an amazing mum, you’re beautiful, and you need to remember to take care of yourself.”.
  10. How do you feel right now? I feel kind of nervous today because I had to go to the dentist this morning which is terrifying for me, but I didn’t cry or have a panic attack and they said my teeth were in good condition, yay! Also, I should find out tomorrow exactly what I’ve got to do to keep my scholarship, and I should find out whether I’ve got a flat on my University campus which I’m a bit nervous about too.
  11. How do you wish to feel tomorrow? Hopefully I’ll feel more relaxed and happy because I’ll know more about my University scholarship and accommodation.

Questions from A Teenage Diary Online…

  1. Do you have a favourite band? If I had to pick one it would be Fall Out Boy, because there’s very rarely a band where I love every single one of their songs but with FOB I haven’t found a song of theirs I don’t like.
  2. Who is your favourite YouTuber? I don’t actually spend a lot of time on YouTube, but if I had to pick one it would be Danisnotonfire just because he’s as awkward and dorky as I am!
  3. If you could go to one fictional world where would it be? I would love to go to the world of Adventure Time, ugh sorry that’s so dorky! But it’s true, that would be awesome!
  4. What’s your favourite shoe brand? Converse! They look awesome, they’re comfy, and you can run away in them if you need to. Perfect!
  5. Can you play any musical instruments? Nope, not a single one 😦 I have no coordination so every instrument I’ve tried to play I have failed at. I just think my brain is more technically wired.
  6. What’s your favourite animal? Giraffes! They’re so tall and they’re so loving. I managed to convince a zookeeper at my local zoo to let me feed the giraffes and it was amazing! I had no idea how I managed to convince him, but I got some awesome photos of me feeding baby giraffes 🙂
  7. Have you ever experienced the “crazy naked guy”? Pfftt, I took that guy down! My friend and I threatened to call the police on him, and he shut down his account. You’re welcome 😛
  8. If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be? This Song Saved My Life, by Simple Plan. Just because it means so much to me.
  9. What is the most prized possession you own? But… I love all my things. I collect a lot of things and have tons of “memory boxes”, scrapbooks, and I form an attachment to pretty much everything in my room. If I had to pick one thing it would be my first ever scrapbook that I made where I recorded everything important I did from the age of 11-12 and it’s really sweet to look back on it 🙂
  10. What’s your favourite season? Winter, definitely. I can bundle up in big coats and scarves and look all cute and cuddly, and you get Halloween and Christmas, and I love snow 🙂
  11. What do you look for in a guy? I have to admit I do love blue eyes, and I think glasses are so cute! But I also love a sense of humour, I love romance, and I love a guy who is good around kids, someone that’s hardworking is nice, and I love it when a guy is proud to have you as a girlfriend 🙂 (Oh and they have to be really bad at rollerskating so I can show off :P)

Blogger Recognition Award and a HUGE thank you!

image001

Excuse me, WordPress? What do you think you’re doing?

Before I start my award post, I’d like to address an incident that occurred a couple of days ago. Do you see the picture above? I had what WordPress called “A spike” and it’s all thanks to this wonderful man here. I wrote a post, inspired by a post he had previously written, and you can see my post here and this man posted it to his Facebook page which you can see here. Within hours my view counter shot up from about 100 views (which is roughly what I aim for each day) to 200, then to 300, and it didn’t stop! It felt amazing to know that not only was I spreading awareness of anxiety, but so many lovely people commented and messaged me saying they’re going through the same thing and to know that I’m not alone in this was wonderful. And since writing this, my post has been seen over 1200 times!! Thank you again Chris, and thank you to everyone who read my post!

Now onto another huge thank you…

Thank you to Brighton Bipolar for the Blogger Recognition Award!

  • Select 15 other blogs you want to give the award to. Do some digging if you must! Find those blogs. You cannot nominate yourself or the person who has nominated you. Oh gosh, there are so many bloggers who have made me feel so welcome here and who inspire me but I’ve got to narrow it down to 15, so here goes…

  • Write a post to show off your award! Give a brief story of how your blog got started, and give a piece or two of advice to new bloggers. Thank whoever nominated you, and provide a link to their blog. List who you’ve nominated in the post. Make sure to also attach the award itself! (You can do this by right-clicking, saving, and uploading the image above).

How did my blog start?

My blog started because I was an invisible 17 year old girl. I had so many thoughts and opinions and ideas, but no one to listen to them. So I started talking to myself on here…And nothing happened. Nobody liked my posts or commented and  felt so defeated, and then lightning struck! People started to listen to me and it was such an incredible feeling that since I started, my blog has been viewed nearly 7000 times! So thank you, you all truly do mean the world to me.

My advice:

I’m still a complete newbie at this, I’ve only been blogging for 3 months! However, if I had to give some pieces of advice this would be it:

Network. Go like, follow, and comment on amazing blogs! Not only will you get to read some interesting posts, you’ll be making fellow bloggers happy, and it’ll help bring people to your site if they see you as a genuinely supportive person.

Write about what you love. We can tell if a blogger is passionate about what they write, and if you show emotion in your posts it just makes for a more interesting and engaging read.

Don’t blog for fame. There are millions (possibly billions) of blogs out there. The chances your blog will give you any kind of fortune or fame is slim. Blog because it makes you happy, because it’s cheaper than a therapist, because you love to write, because you get to talk to amazing people, because you have a story that just has to be told.

  • Comment on each blog and let them know you’ve nominated them. Provide a link to the award post you created if you want.
  •  Provide a link to the original post on Edge of Night . That way, anyone can find the original guidelines and post if needed, and we can keep it from mutating and becoming confusing!

Thank you again for everything, you all mean so much to me 🙂

Sunshine Blogger Award!

Thank you so much Mon and Invoke Delight for nominating me for this award, please go check out their blogs because they’re fabulous 🙂

Here’s the rules

  • Thank the people/person who nominated you. Thank you so much!
  • Answer the questions from your nominators. 

Mon’s Questions

  1. What are your views about my blog? It sucks. Just kidding! It’s fabulous!
  2. Who do you consider your blogging twin? I think if I could chose to have anyone as my twin I’d have Sheetal, even though we live 5000 miles away and we look the complete opposite, I think it would be awesome to have her as a sister 🙂
  3. What is your favorite book? This is an impossible question!! I love so many books, one of my favourites is Wonder by R.J Palacio.
  4. What is a song that is inspirational to you? This Song Saved My Life. I’ve told this story a few times, but for my newer bloggers… One day I was very, very upset. I still had depression and had just self harmed very badly. My boyfriend walked into my room and found me and he played me this song. He’s autistic so it can be difficult for him to tell me how he feels, but he told me that I’m the reason he’s so happy now. This was the changing point in my life and from that point on I stopped self harming, and with his help, I started to love myself.
  5. Which blogger’s posts can you never miss? Sophie Speaks Up. One post can have me genuinely laughing out loud, another can have me nodding in agreement, and another can have me in tears. I love it!
  6. What is your favourite quote? “You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”- Winnie The Pooh
  7. What is one way we can be a kinder person? I think we could listen to each other a bit more. I think we live in a world where everyone is just waiting until they can speak, without actually listening to what others are saying.
  8. One writing trick that you use? I find I write all my best posts with a cup of tea in my hand. Screw that actually, I write ALL my blog posts with a cup of tea in my hand 😛

Invoke Delight’s Questions

  1. Unicorn or dragon? Unicorn. How majestic would I look on a unicorn?! Plus, I think people underestimate how badass unicorns can be, so if people mess with me I could totally fight them with my awesome unicorn.
  2. Really? Yes. I thought very seriously about this.
  3. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I’ve genuinely wanted to be a scientist for as long as I could remember. But alongside that dream I have wanted to be: a florist, an author, a journalist, and a lawyer. I don’t see any reason why I can’t be a scientist AND a florist!
  4. Marmite or Vegemite? What Hell on Earth is Vegimite? Marmite is bad enough, why on Earth did they make something called Vegemite?! This offends me on a personal level!
  5. Where would you like most to go on holiday, and what would you do when you got there? I would love to go to New York. It’s the complete opposite to where I live and it just seems so exciting and busy! I would just go shopping and explore 🙂
  6. If you could go to space (but never come back) would you do it? Oh my gosh. This is one of the hardest questions I’ve ever been asked! I think that if my boyfriend and certain family and friends went to space then yes I would. I’ve always been fascinated with space and the stars, and it is one of my biggest dreams to go to space.
  7. Where’s the most random place you’ve ever slept? Outside of an abandoned house in Scotland when I was 10. My family went camping in Scotland and we had no money whatsoever, but that was probably the most amazing holiday I’ve ever been on. I never realised we had no money and my parents made it into one big adventure, it was brilliant! We swum under a waterfall, and we found this really cool abandoned house and we pretended we were Ghostbusters. Then we pitched up a tent in the garden and we roasted marshmallows together 🙂
  8. If you could build a secret passageway in your current home, where would it go and how would it get there? I would have a passageway to an underground library where all my favourite books are, and there will be a big fireplace and a massive sofa and lots of pillows. And to get there I would open my favourite book, The Fault In Our Stars, and say “Okay” into it then it would reply with “Okay” and would open a door to my library.
  9. If you could be anything you wanted to be, what would you be? I’m quite happy being me 🙂
  10. There’s a fire in your house, you only have time to take one thing out, what would you take? My memory box. It’s got all my random junk that I’ve collected over the years like movie tickets and photos. It would be heartbreaking if I lost that.
  11. Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time (like, really, not the ‘fake answers’ people are coached into saying for interviews)? In five years time I’ll just be leaving University so I’ll probably be exhausted and scared as Hell. Hopefully my boyfriend and I will still be together and we’ll be considering moving in together. I hope I’ll be working at a hospital helping to diagnose diseases and saving the World!

Starlight Blogger Award!

Thank you so much to 21 And Sensory and Ask A Teenage Aspie for nominating me for this award! These are two amazing bloggers and you should definitely go check out their blogs!

Here’s the rules:

  • Thank the giver and link their blog to your post. Thank you so much!
  • Include the logo of the award in a post or on your blog please never alter the logo and never change the rules. 
  • Answer the 3 questions given to you.

21 And Sensory’s Questions…

  1. What would you say has been the best day of your life so far? This is a really difficult question! The first thing that comes to mind is the day I met my boyfriend. It was just a perfect day. I’d met this amazing guy, had tons of fun singing and goofing off with him and his friends. The sun was setting perfectly and my favourite song was playing on the radio- it was like a movie! Another amazing day was when I got the email saying I’d been offered a scholarship to University. I knew I’d struggle to pay for University and I would have to work almost full time to support myself, but then I managed to get an Academic Excellence Scholarship and now I don’t have to work!
  2. If you had to describe yourself in 5 words what words would you choose? Optimistic, hopeful, intelligent, happy, and kind. 🙂
  3. If you were stuck on a desert island and were allowed only 3 items and one person with you what items and which person would you choose? I would take my glasses because without them I can’t see my hand in front of my face, so I’d probably fall into the sea or get eaten by a crocodile without them! I would then take one of my boyfriend’s dogs. Specifically, I’d take Fuzzy Bear the German Sheppard because he’s so fluffy and cute so it would help keep me happy and motivated, but when he grows up he could be used to hunt for food and I could ride him around the island 😛 I’d also take my blanket because it’s so warm and safe. The person I’d take would be my boyfriend because he knows how to survive outdoors, plus he’d be cool to talk to and he’d be a source of entertainment 😛

Ask A Teenage Aspie’s Questions…

  1. What song/songs do you listen to to inspire you when you feel down? My favourite one is This Song Saved My Life by Simple Plan. I’ve mentioned this a few times, but basically my boyfriend played it for me one day when I was very upset. He’s autistic so sometimes it’s difficult for him to know how to comfort me, but this song let me know how he felt and it was so sweet 🙂
  2. What importance does blogging hold for you? Blogging has become very important to me. In the real world I’m very quiet. I’m the sort of girl that is friends with everyone but I’m completely unremarkable, I have so many ideas and thoughts but I don’t speak very much and sometimes that makes me feel like I’m invisible. So, every like and follow and comment on this blog helps to remind me that I exist and that there are people who want to listen to me. So thank you.
  3. Where was the most amazing place you’ve ever been? The Natural History Museum in London. It’s beautiful.
  • Please pass the award on to 6 or more other bloggers of your choice and let them know that they have been nominated by you. This Award is created to highlight and promote Inspiring Bloggers.  I know so many inspiring bloggers, so I wrote a list of all the people I found inspiring and my boyfriend picked 6.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award!

Thank you Never Less Than Everything for this nomination! And if you haven’t checked out this blog you should, both Tricia and Ben are fabulous bloggers 🙂

Here’s the rules:

  • Put the award logo in your post. Done!
  • Thank the person who nominated you and put a link to their blog. Thank you so much, you are amazing!
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers. I am following some amazing bloggers, but these are some of the people who regularly get involved in my blog…
  1. The Crazy Perfectionist
  2. Elm
  3. Desire To Express
  4. A Teenage Diary Online
  5. Life Of A 17 Year Old Indian
  6. Everything And Nothing

  • Let your nominees know you’ve nominated them.
  • Post 7 facts about you. 
  1. It’s my 18th birthday on the 15th July. So if anyone reading this would like to send me some presents that would be nice 😛
  2. I love my pajamas. If it was socially acceptable to wear pajamas outside then I would. As soon as I get home I instantly get changed into them and if I don’t have to go outside, I will wear them the whole day. They’re just too comfy!
  3. Pink lemonade is my favourite drink. Where I live pink lemonade isn’t sold in shops, so it’s really rare for me to get hold of some. Whenever I see it I will buy it, which has often led to me carrying around multiple giant bottles of pink lemonade whilst shopping. But it’s worth it!
  4. I have a massive family. A lot of people say that, but seriously my family is huge! I have 12 aunts and uncles, and I have around 50 cousins (including 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc.)! Last time we counted it was at 53 cousins but at least 3 of those cousins are pregnant so it could be much more now! This means that we’ll go to at least one wedding, at least two christenings, and countless parties each year 🙂
  5. I can’t donate blood. I tried to donate blood and I was fine until about 10 minutes in. Then I started feeling dizzy and sick. I stupidly tried to stop them taking the needle out of me and ended up falling onto the floor like a starfish 😦 It was definitely not my finest moment! The head nurse there said that I was pretty much banned from giving blood as my body couldn’t handle it, which sucks. But if any of you are over 17 and are thinking of giving blood, please do! It doesn’t hurt, just a teeny scratch and then you just lie there for 15 minutes. Then, free food! And that 15 minutes could potentially save someone’s life.
  6. I can pick locks. I don’t think many people know this because a lot of people get freaked out by me, a petite blonde girl, being able to pick locks. But I think it’s an amazing skill to have! I’ve never had to use it in an emergency, but if the situation comes up I’m going to look like a badass 😛
  7. I’m clumsy. Sometimes my brain and my body don’t talk to each other. So I’ll walk into closed doors, trip over thin air, and knock over things on a daily basis. This means I am constantly covered in bruises and cuts, but so far I’ve managed to avoid any broken bones 🙂

Thank you so much for the nomination, and thank you for reading 🙂

Brotherhood Of The World Bloggers Award!

I want to say a huge thank you to Ashish Kumar for nominating me for this award!!

Here’s the rules…

  • Thank and link back to the person who nominated you for the award. Thank you so much, you’re awesome!
  • List the Rules and Display the Brotherhood of the world Award logo to your post and/or blog.
  • Answer the questions set to you. 
  1. What kind of person you are. Introvert,extrovert or ambivert? I am such an introvert! I like my room and I like to stay there 😛
  2. Who is your source of inspiration? I get inspiration from everyone around me, but I think my parents and my boyfriend are my main sources of inspiration. My parents have four jobs between them, yet they still find time to spend with me and my brother. They’ve taught me to work hard, and to repsect people and I couldn’t ask for better role models. My boyfriend and I have been through a lot, a lot more than any teenager should go through. Yet he’s still such a strong and truly happy person and I love him for always being there for me (sorry this is so cheesy!).
  3. The most happiest moment of your life. I have had so many “perfect” moments but these are my top two that I can remember. The first day I met my boyfriend, it was just so perfect and I knew that I wanted to get to know him better. He walked me to my dad’s car and as we drove home the sun was setting and my favourite song was playing. My second was getting my scholarship into university. I don’t come from a wealthy family so I would have had to get a job during university, but now I can focus on getting the top grades and I am so proud of myself!
  4. What legacy would you like to leave? I want people to remember me as being happy and good. I try to make people smile, and to help as many people as possible and I would love to be remembered for this.
  5. What is your most beautiful imagination so far? This is a tough question, and I’m not really sure how to answer it. I have beautiful thoughts about everything, and I see the world in the most beautiful way 🙂
  6. What is your favourite quote? I’m a big quote lover so this is one of my favourites: “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever” – Winnie The Pooh. I think this quote is so cute, and even though everyone reading this has lost someone they love as long as we think of them and remember our love for them they’re never gone.
  7. What are your hobbies other than blogging? There’s a world outside blogging?! But seriously I love running (although I am incredibly slow), and I enjoy reading, and rollerskating has always been something I’ve loved 🙂
  • Nominate around ten other bloggers and let them know about the award. Since the majority of people I nominate for awards are female, and since this is the “Brotherhood” Award I’m going to nominate male bloggers for this award.
