Well, what a lovely way to kick off 2019 – at the back end of 2018 Dr Tanya kindly nominated me for another Sunshine Blogger Award. Please take the time to check out and follow her blog which has a great name, “Salted Caramel.” Who doesn’t love that? Dr Tanya likes it in brownies and ice cream. That melange of sweet and salty is soooooooooooooo addictive.
Dr Tanya’s lifestyle blog is about continually re-inventing ourselves, change being the only constant, and forwards the best way to go. On her blog she shares her struggles so that you and I can become even better versions of our already awesome selves.
The rules are as follows:
My Responses to Dr Tanya’s Questions:
I blog because I can and it’s purely for pleasure, neither profit nor gain.
I’ve been blogging on and off since mid-2009. It started as a way to keep my sponsors for a cycling event apprised of my progress and morphed into firstly a cycling blog and more recently what might be called a Lifestyle one.
Rather selfishly, I write for myself.
Not that I’m consciously aware of but I do enjoy the discipline of writing regularly.
I love reading all sorts of blogs including those about food, wine, travel, fashion, poetry, photography and sport. There’s so much great writing out there in the blogosphere.
I’m not going to be writing a book anytime soon, though I have edited a couple – far more enjoyable and much less stressful.
Anything by Dorothy Parker, I love her witty ripostes.
I’m struggling to think of a book that has inspired me. There’s plenty that I’ve enjoyed, I’m a voracious reader, but none that have inspired.
We’re not going to have enough room to do this here!
My long-suffering husband is supportive, friends overseas find it a useful way of keeping in touch and I don’t have any pets.
Yes, providing I’m still in the land of the living!
