Not too long ago I was invited to join a writer/blogger group on facebook. I have loved getting to meet and connect with other bloggers through that group. Awhile ago, like back in the beginning of March, I got nominated for a Liebster Award by Nance at Leaning on Jesus. And you are now seeing procrastination at its finest with this post finally being written. I've been nominated for a Liebster Award a couple of times and always love doing Q&A type posts. Nance asked some really great questions, so let's get started!
Why did you start blogging? I started blogging back in 2009 after seeing my big sister's blog. I've always enjoyed writing and journaling, so I thought "why not?" Polished Arrow isn't my first blog, but it is the space that I've really grown to be my own and have loved watching the community start to build. I write mainly because I believe that words are powerful and want people to feel encouraged when they come into this space and when they leave it.
When did you understand love? The only thing I understand about love is that God is love. And without His love, I would be nothing.
What is your favorite book? Give an excerpt in one sentence. Oh, this is such a hard question for me! I'm a big lover of books. One that I recently read that became a favorite is The Book Thief. A young orphan finds family and friendship in the darkest of places while being followed around by Death.
When did you first start reading a blog? The first personal blog I read was probably my sister's. I've found and followed so many bloggers over the years, I don't remember often how I first discovered them.
What is your best blog? Share with us the link. I'm not sure what my best post is, but I have my favorites. This is my most recent favorite, The KitchenAid Mixer Dilemma. For a list of my other favorites, check out this page.
What's your favorite dish to cook for your guests? Baking and cooking is something that I've gotten more into the older I've become. I recently baked my first batch of biscuits from scratch! I love trying out new recipes. I think my favorite thing, though, would have to be apple pie. It's a new tradition I have to make it every year for the fourth of July.
What's the best gift you have ever received? This is a tie. Either my Kindle or the Cross, made from two nails, that is hanging on my wall in my room.
Potatoes or rice? Potatoes! In any and every form!
How many books can you read in a day if you have a day off? I'm not really sure, but I feel like I should take this challenge seeing as I'm off work for a week. I have some serious book reading to do to catch up on my list. In the past, I know I've read one book in a day, but if I was doing nothing but reading and was really drawn in, I think I could read a couple in a day.
What is something adventurous you would like to try on your birthday? Kayak and camp along the coast, Atlantic or Pacific.
Ice cream or cake? Another tough one. Ice cream cake. ;)
Thank you again, Nance for nominating me. So sorry for my procrastination in answering your questions.
Loved what you asked!
