The Outstanding Blogger Award (+ it’s my birthday!)

Published January 17, 2021 by I Blog

Hello everyone!

How are you guys today??? I hope that you’re doing awesome!

So, I was recently nominated for the Outstanding Blogger Award by the amazing Jess over at Comfort Reads! Thank you so much Jess! I really appreciate the nomination!

Plus, today is my birthday (finally 17- whoop!), and I thought what better way to spend it than by answering some questions and spreading the love by tagging some other bloggers? 🙂

So, without further ado, let’s get into the post!


  • Provide a link back to the creators original post ( This award was originally created by Colton Beckwith).
  • Answer the questions provided.
  • Create 7 unique questions.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers. Ensure that they are aware of their nomination. Neither the award’s creator, nor the blogger that nominated you, can be nominated.
  • At the end of 2020, every blog that ping-backs the creator’s original post will be entered to win the 2020 Outstanding Blogger Award. (Don’t know If this still carries forward to 2021 as I was nominated in December, but wee’ll see 🙂 )

The Questions:

1.What Is Your Main Goal For 2021?

I think that my main goal for 2021 is to just do more of the stuff that I like and pick up new hobbies. I think that I want to try and pick up at least twelve new hobbies (or go back to old ones that I haven’t done in a while) this year in an effort to find more things that I love to do!

2. Sticking To The Theme of 2021, What Are You Most Looking Forward To Next Year?

Ooh! Okay, this is hard! I think that I am looking forward to there hopefully being a COVID vaccine that can be administered to everyone, so that people can go and see their families again!

3. What Is One Genre You Just Don’t Get Along With?

Ooh! Okay um… this is hard too! I like to try everything, but I guess that my least favourite genre is contemporary (I still read it though 🙂 ), I guess specifically contemporary romance as I prefer fantasy (although I love romance in fantasy, haha).

4. Where Is Your Favourite Place To Read?

I think probably on my sofa in my living room as it’s got really nice natural light! And it’s super comfy! I wish that I could read in bed more as that’s really cozy, but I can never get comfy haha.

5. What Is Your Favourite Season?

My favourite season is most definitely winter. Mainly because it has my birthday and Christmas, but also because I love the cold!

6. Why Did You Start Blogging?

Short answer: because I read Girl Online and was feeling *inspired*. But my mum also did a lot of convincing to get me to *actually* start doing it!

7. What Made You Continue Blogging?

The amount that I love it! I was genuinely not expecting Ito love it so much when I first started, and now it’s like I’ve got a whole community of friends here! I love chatting with people in the comments and just the whole community aspect of blogging! I think that’s what keeps me going!

My Nominations:

Elsie LMC

Blondey on a Mission from Tall Blonde Tales

Hannah from The Striped Plaid


August from Geekerella Undercover

Ayesha from the Mind of Ayesha

My Questions

  1. What is a book and/or movie that changed your life?
  2. If you were an animal, what animal would you be and why?
  3. What is your favourite colour? Do you think it reflects your personality?
  4. If you could have any pet, regardless of financial things or logistics, what pet would you have? (can also be a fictional animal 🙂 )
  5. Would you rather only be able to write blog posts or read blog posts? Why?
  6. What is your star sign? Do you believe in astrology?
  7. What is something you want to do more of in 2021?

So, that was my Outstanding Blogger award!

Again, a huge thanks to Jess for the nomination!

Feel free to answer any of the questions in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts!

    • Thank you so much! It was actually a really fun day! I got to FaceTime some of my family and I played an online game of Mario Kart with my cousin which was really awesome!

      You are so welcome! Good luck for any of your goals too! I agree! It’s really fun to try new things and find things that you love! ❤️❤️❤️

      • Glad to hear you had a fun time! ✨ Ahh Mario Kart online sounds like loads of fun especially as a way of spending time with fam from afar, the closest I’ve come to that was on the old ds when my sister and I would sync and play against each other but always close by 😂. Nowadays we’ll play it on the Wii U instead, that game never gets old! Thank you very much 😄❤️

  • First off, THANKS FOR THE NOMINATION!!!! ❤ ❤
    Omg, winter is my fave season too!! are we twins?!?! I have my birthday and New Years and Christmas and everyone is just so happy! The weather is so lovely too! I actually prefer cold, freezing weather! I really do miss snow though! When we lived in America, we had a snowy winter for 13 years!! It's been nearly five years and im craving my snow hehe!
    WAIT A SECOND. MAYBE WE ARENT TWINS BECAUSE I HATE FANTASY 😂 😂 😂 😂 (it's okay we will always be twins in my heart :P) My favorite genres are psychological thrillers! Just finished one right now actually! It's called Varity, and my god was it creepy! 👀

    • Oh Queen you are so welcome ❤️❤️❤️

      Yes! We are most definitely twins! Winter is so awesome! I love that fact that it is nice and cold and you just get to sit in blankets and be so cozy! I feel you on the snow issue though! Where I live we haven’t had snow in a quite a few years and it’s honestly gutting 😢

      Oh wait a second! Thrillers are my second favourite genre?!? Maybe we ARE twins 😱 😂😂😂

        Apart from the weather, the FOOD in winter is so freaking delicious! Something about hot coco and teas is just so appealing in winter. I mean I hate tea and milk but in winter, im a different person 😛
        AND HEATERS. Especially the ones that blow the warm air! Me and my siblings put a blanket over the heater and make our own little warm cocoon.

        ANY GOOD THRILLERS?!?! I’m about to start another book tomorrow but I need suggestions! And since we’re twins, we must have the same taste too 😛 🙊

        • *GASP* Love that! 💜

          Yes! Ohmygosh don’t get me started on food I’ll be here all day! Like Christmas dinner? 🤤

          Oh my gosh! Exactly! I literally despise hot drinks but when we get to winter I’m like “GIVE ME ALL THE HOT CHOCOLATES!”
          Yes! Heaters! My cat loves them. So. Much. 😂😂😂 honestly sometimes I think she loves my heater more than me 😂
          a warm wintery cocoon sounds AWESOME!

          Ooh! So many! How do I think of one off the top of my head?!? AAAH
          OKAY UM THIS ONE IS MORE OF A MURDER MYSTERY THRILLER INSTEAD OF A PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER IS THAT OKAY?? It’s called A Good Girl’s Guide To Murder and it’s about a girl who investigates a murder in her town as part of her EPQ in school and it’s really good (especially the second half) although I would recommend looking up any trigger warnings if you need them 🙃
