Real Neat Blog Award

real-neat-blog-award

 

Two wonderful bloggers have nominated me for “The Real Neat Blog Award” a few weeks ago which was a lovely surprise.

I am only just getting around to writing about this as I recently had a breavement in my family and all thoughts of blogging went out of the window whilst dealing with this.

I am back now and ready to reply to these nominations.

I have been nominated by Lisa Q from Sweet Woman, Dirty Mind and Cat from You Won’t Tame This Sassy Cat.  Thank you both so much for the nomination!

I did a little reasearch to see where this award started and it appears that it was originally created at the blog “Dear Kitty.Some Blog” back in December 2014.  Quite an interesting blog it looks to be too!

So onto the rules of the award

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs and provide a list of 7 questions for them.
  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog, twitter etc.)

I had two nominations and therefore I have two sets of questions to answer so here goes…

Sweet Woman, Dirty Mind – Questions and Answers

Why did you start blogging and how did you choose your focus?

The reason that I started this blog is because I was about to enter my 50’s and I wanted to blog about my transition into this new decade (and beyond) of my life and explore the changes, both sexual and emotional, that can affect a woman at this time and share my experiences with others.

What do you wish you had known when you started blogging and what’s your biggest piece of advice for new bloggers?

How much time it would take up!  My advice to new bloggers would be that blogging is more time consuming than you may think but it can also be one of the most rewarding things that you will do.

What post, piece or series are you most proud of writing? Please share the link.

This blog is still very young and therefore there is not much to choose from at present, however, I would say that my favourite, at present, would be my post “Unexpected

If you did not blog about sex, what else would you most like to blog about?

I have absolutely no idea! Lol

What is the most important thing you have discovered or learned about your sexuality?

Presently, that my body is changing and, from a sexual viewpoint, I have to go with the flow and that includes the frustrations of a sometime drop in sex drive as well as the irregularity of my menstural cycle!

What is the worst piece of sex advice someone ever gave you?

It was when I was a child and I was told that if a man touches your private parts it is dirty.

Name your favorite sex toy and the worst sex toy you ever tried.

Favourite sex toy would be a glass dildo.  Worst sex toy any other dildo except glass!

You Won’t Tame This Sassy Cat – Questions and Answers

What was the reason you decided to start blogging? Has your blog changed in any way since you began blogging?

The reason that I started this blog is because I was about to enter my 50’s and I wanted to blog about my transition into this new decade (and beyond) of my life and explore the changes, both sexual and emotional, that can affect a woman at this time and share my experiences with others.  The blog is still very new so apart from starting on wordpress.com and then moving to a self-hosted platform the blog has not really changed much at all – yet!!

What was the best and worst advice you received when you started your blog? What’s the advice you offer to those just starting out in the blogosphere?

How much time it would take up!  My advice to new bloggers would be that blogging is more time consuming than you may think but it can also be one of the most rewarding things that you will do.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years of blogging? What is your ultimate goal for your blog?

I would hope to still be here in 5 years.  As for goals, I don’t really have any.  I am a person that lives very much in the present, I don’t dwell on the past other than to reflect on the positives and who knows what the future will bring, it will all unfurl in it’s own time.

What are some adjectives you would like your readers to use to describe your blog and why?

Sex-positive, fun and sassy with a bit of erotic thrown in.  Why – because that’s how I would like me and my blog to be perceived.

How important are blog stats, page ranks and comments for you?

Stats and page ranks I couldn’t give a jot about.  As for comments I do like to hear what others think and how they see my work, I am more than happy to receive constructive critisim but will not tolerate rudeness or bitching of any sort, it is unnecessary and unproductive.

Describe a typical blogging day for you. (What you do first, etc.)

I don’t really have a typical blogging day as I tend to blog when the inspiration or interest in a particular subject takes me.  I am not a blogger than plans, I am an “off-the-cuff” and spontaneous blogger – which interestingly is not what I am like outside of sex-blogging – there’s one for the psychologists out there!

What is your favorite blogging meme to take part in and why?

Currently my two favourites are Sinful Sunday, as I have a keen interest in photography and Wicked Wednesday as I enjoy the prompts that Marie puts forward.  I am also keen to do more with the Kink of the Week meme.
