The Unique Blogger Award

The Unique Blogger Award

A blog award? Wow, I haven’t done one of those in forever. After I made the switch to business blogging, I had said that I was no longer going to be taking part in tags and awards. As you can see, today is going to be the exception! Several weeks ago, Olivia from Purely Olivia nominated me for the Unique Blogger Award. I wasn’t planning on doing it….. But then, due to a busy schedule, and having no writing inspiration whatsoever, I thought it would be a pretty quick & easy post to pull together. So here we are! Let’s get on to the award!

The Unique Blogger Award - A Sweet N Simple Life Blog - Cynthia Zander - #blog #blogging #lifestyle #award

First off, let me tell you a little bit about Olivia and her blog……

Olivia blogs over at Purely Olivia. If you haven’t heard of her blog, I would highly suggest going to check it out! She’s a Jesus loving bookworm and ballet dancer who loves reading, writing, ice cream, and she chats about it all on her super fun lifestyle blog. Purely Olivia was one of the very first blogs that I started following when I first began blogging almost 2 years ago. It’s been fun to keep in touch and chat through post comments with her over the years. Click here to read Olivia’s original award post. Thanks for the nomination, Olivia! You saved my blogging schedule with this quick & easy post idea 😉

  • Answer the questions they’ve written for you

Olivia’s Questions:

  1. What is your blogging inspiration?
  2. When you’re not blogging, what are you doing?
  3. What’s the most interesting/crazy/weird dream you’ve ever had?

1. What is your blogging inspiration?

Mainly my family & my friends. They are extremely supportive & encouraging. I know that I wouldn’t still be blogging if it wasn’t for them. Other then people, my blogging & writing inspiration can come from many different places….. If you are a writer, then you know exactly what I mean. Sometimes your inspiration comes from something you read, something you see, something you feel, a random thought that passes through your head, the person that you pass in the street, the old lady that smiles at you, the changes in the weather, or anything else! Inspiration comes in so many different shapes and forms.

2. When you’re not blogging, what are you doing?

I’ve been asked this question so many times and I never know how to answer it. There are just so many different things! Family/House responsibilities are the most important, so if I’m not doing blog work, I’m probably cleaning, organizing, cooking, or working on random little projects around the house. (Seriously, with a family this size, there’s always a floor that needs scrubbed or a window that needs washed.) If I’m pretty caught up on work and it’s time to do something fun, then I go adventuring. That might mean exploring a new place, driving down a back road, running through a field, planting/weeding in the garden, reading a book, baking and creating new recipes, chatting with a friend, practicing music, or a million other things!

3. What’s the most interesting/crazy/weird dream you’ve ever had?

I had a dream I went to the kitchen late at night to get a snack….. And instead was kidnapped by a 10 foot tall giant guy who was standing by the refrigerator. Wow that sounds ridiculous. I don’t even know what else to say. Yes, it was definitely interesting/crazy/weird 😉 Try to eat, get kidnapped instead. Enough said.


Normally when tags & awards are given, you are supposed to nominate a long list of other bloggers. Sadly, I didn’t have the chance to search for a dozen other lifestyle bloggers to give this award to. (Remember, quick & easy last minute post 😉 ) So instead, I’m nominating any lifestyle blogger who is reading this! If you would like to do this award, you can answer the same 3 questions that I did. If you do this award, make sure you link to me so I can check it out! I would love to see your blogs!
