Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster award by Roda at Growing Self Blog. Check out her blog she has so much going on with her blog, the farm, gardening, and renovations it will make your head spin.

Since Roda nominated me I chose to answer her questions. I am super busy right now trying to help our daughter and her husband get ready for a move to a new house on 4 acres so I will not be nominating anyone at this time.

I feel like I am sort of cheating because my other blog that is still active had too many followers for this challenge.


GrowingSelf – Roda’s Questions to nominees:

  1. Why did you start blogging? I started blogging several blogs ago for my photography business then it became more than just a photography blog it became personal.
  2. Who is your role model? My role model would be my dad he saw the good in everyone and never seemed to judge people too much. I really miss him.
  3. Use one word to describe yourself? Compassionate
  4. Do you have a pet?  If so, what is your favorite thing about your special friend? We have many pets but one of my favorite pets would be Daisy our 4-year-old boxer dog. I love her personality, her hyperactivity for life and most of all she just makes me smile. I think she really understands me.
  5. What is your favorite color? Blue has always been my favorite color. It does not matter the shade or the tone if leans towards blue I love it. Right now I am hung up on aqua and gray together.
  6. Where on Earth is your most memorable travel destination? I loved going to Arizona and seeing the Grand Canyon it was breathtaking and I could have stared at it for hours. I bought a 28mm lens just to shoot the Grand Canyon.
  7. What is your favorite book? I really do not have a favorite book. 
  8. Are you a city mouse or a country mouse? I am a country mouse I love everything about country living the peace and quiet, wildlife and nature and most of all the cows I truly love cows.
  9. What is your favorite vegetable? My favorite vegetable has changed over the years I guess right now it would be grilled asparagus.
  10. What is your Superpower? This is a  funny question because I have a tee shirt that says “I stop time what is your superpower” so I guess my super power would be photography.
  11. What do you love most about YOU? My determination to succeed at whatever I chose to do.

Upgrades and more

Today I bought my domain name and upgraded my WordPress to the personal one.

This only happened about one hour ago and I see my domain name is already working. YEA!

Then I had to figure out the domain mapping part so I asked a question last night in the forum that did not get answered. I managed to do it myself this morning. It is amazing what we can accomplish after a good nights sleep.

This will give me some extra space until I decide what I am going to do about storing the pictures on another site so I do not run out of space so quickly.

Thanks to Shannon for her suggestions because I would not have thought about storing the pictures somewhere else.

I use to host my website on my ISP so I want to check with them and see if they still offer free space if so hopefully I can figure out how to set up an album without a website. If so that could be a free storage option.

There are some blank pages up top that will hopefully have some information on them sometime soon. I might move a few photography post and some DIY post from the old blog.

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
