You Love Me! You Really Love Me!

I decided to make this page for two reasons: One, I love letting my readers know about some of the other wonderful blogs out there that I love to read. Two, I want to acknowledge those who were so amazing enough to pass on these awards to me.

Since creating my page dedicated to my readers (“Who’s Chillin’ in the Cafe“), I am no longer nominating specific blogs to pass on the awards to because I wanted to acknowledge every single blog of the readers of Your Daily Dose. Please check them out!

Thank you for thinking of me and appreciating my blog :)

Versatile Blogger Award
from Andy at My story to you..

The rules: Tell everyone 7 things about myself. Pass the award on to 15 bloggers. Notify the 15 bloggers of their award. Thank my award giver. Display a picture of the award on my blog!

1. My name is Janice (not Cafe =P).

2. I have an obsession with clouds. I love gazing at them and admiring their different shapes and colours. I think they’re one of the most beautiful things in the world.

3. I love to sing but am really shy about it and have always had massive stage fright. I hope to be brave enough to post a video for you all here one day!

4. My favourite place in the world is Killarney Provincial Park (in Ontario) where I go on a backcountry canoe-portaging trip every summer or fall. It is the only place where I’ve known true peace of mind and can leave everything from the city behind.

5. I’m “one of the boys.” I like watching NFL and UFC, playing poker and generally talking shit. And I hate shopping =P

6. Errr, okay I’m running out of things to say. Hmmmm … I’m terrified of riding bicycles? That’s not a question. That’s a fact :(

7. I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminology, and a Master’s in Criminology.

My 8 nominees for the award!

1. Unsolicited Advice — Fraser is a friend from my Master’s class and I’ve always enjoyed his sarcastic, witty sense of humour. He’s a fairly new blogger so please go say hi and support!

2. Mooselicker — Tim was one of the very first bloggers who befriended me on WordPress and who I subscribed to. His posts are honest, humorous, and at times not for the faint of heart!

3. Dear Optimists –Den and Nadia continually remind me to find the positives in life and to not take things so seriously! And I am in love, love, love with Nadia’s comic drawings. They are the cutest thing in the world! :)

4. In Search of Wonderland — CT shares his beautiful poems and photography with us and at times gets into more personal matters. I really admire anyone who can pour out such indepth thoughts for everyone to read.

5. Yoonanimous — Yoona is simply hilarious. I literally laugh out loud every time I read a new post. Whether she’s modeling a fashion idea, sharing a recipe or ranting about her husband and two adorable kids, she always has something funny to say about it!

6. Time After Time — Jake has probably already received numerous awards from other bloggers, but I can’t leave him out of this list. Jake creates unique and beautiful graphic art that is admired by many on WordPress!

7. The Skinny Jeans & Starbucks Chronicles – I seem to really like blogs that make me laugh. Karen’s is one of them. She’s got an opinion or two to share with her readers and always does it with great style and humour.

8. Cerridwen’s Cauldron — Once again, hilarious. I am always in awe of how well Melissa can story-tell. And she always publicly welcomes her new followers, which I think is so badass.

Thank you, Andy, for this award! :)

Blog Game Award
from Daphnee at An Evil Nymph’s Blog

The rules: Since these awards are all about getting to know each other, fill in the blanks with things I might think/say/do in the following situations (feel free to make these up):

The craziest thing I’ve done is: start a blog!! (okay, maybe it’s not that crazy :)

I can’t believe you: are 30. Damn, you look young! (hahaha =P)

My favorite thing is: to write!

The last time I was at a psychiatrist they: said take life one day at a time and don’t think too much :)

I’m sorry, I: have been so busy lately! But I still make an effort to visit my blogroll!

Hm, did I come close, Daphne?? :)

Liebster Blog Award
from Sex In Miami

The rules: Thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog. Link back to the blogger who awarded you. Display the award on your blog. Nominate 5 blogs that you enjoy to receive the award who have less than 200 followers.

So I’m having trouble figuring out who on my blogroll has less than 200 followers, but two people come to mind.

Maybe Pete at Photographs by Peter Knight has quickly amassed a large following, but he started his photography blog not too long ago. Not only do I love his unique, beautiful photos that really capture the human emotion and expression, but he is super engaging with his readers!

I always enjoy reading posts by T. Kimani at tkimani. I’m often amazed at how he manages to continue drawing my attention to the next paragraph, even when he has a long story to tell. T has a great sense of humour and I always have a great time interacting with him on both of our blogs!

Thank you so much for this award, sexinmiami, and congratulations on your blog’s success thus far! :)

Liebster Blog Award
from pretzellogic

The rules: Answer the eleven questions your nominator posed to her/his nominees (hmm, these rules seem to be changing).

1. What keeps you writing when you have writer’s block? >>> I find inspiration in other people’s blogs and writing. When I was having major blogger’s block, I searched for some inspirational questions to re-spark the thinking cap, resulting in my “Writing From the Heart” post series.

2. Most writers have a literary counterpart—a character from their stories who reflect themselves. Tell us about yours.

3. What are your passions? >>> Music and writing/blogging are probably my top two passions. Having a chance to be creative and express myself brings me a lot of joy.

4. You’ve had a fight with your significant other and you want to fix things. What do you do? >>> Talk to him openly and honestly, and with respect. Also, be willing to really hear the other person’s side of things.

5. What’s one injustice you see in the world that you would fix in a story? >>> The way people are unfairly treated by others because of ignorance and prejudice.

6. If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? >>> There’s always a thousand things you could wish to change to make a little or a lot easier, but I’m okay with where I am now and the person I’ve become. So I’ll let things be as they are :)

7. What’s important to you at this point in time? >>> To be at peace of mind and feel happy in life.

8. Who is your hero/heroine? >>> I don’t have one person who I see as a hero/heroine, but any individual who inspires me to be a better person would fall into this category.

9. Do you make it a habit of telling others what you thought of their work, even if your experience wasn’t good?

10. What is good will?

11. What would it take for you to make friends with an old enemy? >>> I’d have to care to make friends with them. You can forgive a person who was your enemy, but sometimes there’s no need to make friends and have them back in your life.

(I didn’t answer the questions that I’m currently stumped on!)

Thank you, pretzellogic, for this award!
