Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger Award

 

So on 24th of January having just returned to the ward from theatre after my operation

i found out I had been nominated for the sunshine Blogger Award by @LTalkslife    https://ltalkslife.com/

When I first started blogging, I had no idea about the blogging community and how welcoming, supportive and interactive they are! It is so nice and refreshing to see people supporting and lifting each other up especially in a world where people are sometimes so quick to bring others down. Anyway back to The Sunshine Blogger Award..

I started blogging at the end of last summer after a conversion with a very good friend of mine. I have always wanted to write but never really found my way into the world of writing until then.

2. What inspired your blog name?

My Blog name is inspired by by Grandma and Nan after a conversation with a different friend about writing she said she uses a pseudonym later in the conversation I mentioned my grandma Eva and she said how it was a powerful name and if I ever took up writing I should consider using it that was it Eva Lily was born.

I like being able to say things my way and give my views on things if something is great I will say so but if its not .. I say that too

5. What would you like to change about blogging?

As I am quiet new to blogging I wouldn’t change anything at the moment, but come back and ask me in a year or two and i may have a better answer for you.

Be organised, plan your content in advance and log what you post when.

8. Do you actually put pen to paper to write your blogs or work on a computer/laptop etc?

my blog is written on the laptop. less often I put pen to paper but that is more for ideas than actual content.

9. What inspires your blogs/how do you come up with new content?

Life is my inspiration if I have read a good book I will review it if I  have been talking to a friend about how their child isn’t being treated well at school I will write about it. I write about what appeals to me.

I’m part way to my dream job I have always wanted to be self employed and so if I could make money from blogging and crafting I think I would be there.
