3. Choose 10-12 blogs that you find a joy to read.

3. If someone would write a book upon your life, it would be named _____. Why ? Swan Feathered Sky. Because I’m currently writing it.

4. Who was the last person who made you laugh and what did they do? K. She yelled out, “Say What?” for no reason at all when we were shopping. You had to be there.

  7. I have to thank you for choosing me for the reader appreciation award. How exactly do I display it on my blog or do I? I know how to put it in a blog post, but I’ve noticed others have theirs on the right side of their blog. I haven’t done anything with it yet because that’s the one thing I’m not sure about. Also, do I have to choose so many blogs. I don’t read that many. I just don’t have the time, but those I follow I try to read and leave a comment. I hate to try and do it and then find I did it all wrong.

  8. Thanks, that helps a lot. I just don’t want to offend anyone, especially someone who actually reads my blog.
