Well it is the 11th of December and I hope that all of you are enjoying another wonderful Monday 🙂 I have to say that this has been one of my better days.
Anyway, I have to take a few minutes to let you all know that I was nominated for the Mystery Blogger Award. It wasn’t too long ago that this happened but I have just gotten to making this post, so… I want to thank MoeTips, a fellow blogger with an extremely wonderful website soooooo much for choosing me as one of her nominations! I think it’s great that bloggers can support each other in creative ways like this and it’s also a good way for us all to discover amazing bloggers that we otherwise may not have run across on these here interwebs. Trust me, having your blog acknowledged from other bloggers is awesome!! With that said, make sure you visit MoeTip’s blog when you get a chance!
The best thing about this nomination as that in return, I also get to nominate other bloggers that I feel deserve the same recognition too! Keep reading to find out more about how this all works.
Now on to the Mystery Blogger Award Rules, which are as follows:
- Feature the award logo/image on your post

The questions presented for me to answer were:

- Who is your favorite blogger?
- What is your favorite meal?
- Who is your favorite singer?
- If you could be a car, what model would you prefer to be?
Three things you may not already know about me are:
I love to sing but only in private. I am super shy in any other setting and don’t like attention on me at all. I am also a dog lover! I’ve probably had a dog in my life in some aspect or another since I was 11 or so. Lastly, this is not my first blog. I have started many, made money with many, and have also have quit many, a few with much regret. I was also a guest blogger on vibevixen.com, which is now active no more. My longtime goal for notyouraveragetenille.com is to keep this blog going for many many decades to come.
1. What motivates me to blog when I’m tired?
I just have to say, there are many things that can motivate me to get up and write when I’m tired or feeling lazy. Most of the time, it’s other blogs. I get inspiration from reading them & seeing how well they are doing, and it pushes me to write more and to work on getting better. Other times, it can be something simple that I run across. For example, I might be shopping or perhaps cooking and i’ll say to myself, this would be a good blog post! Thirdly, just I might be so bored that I push myself to get up and write.
2. Who is my favorite blogger?
Necole Kane. I have followed her blogs since the NecoleBitchie days. I actually had an african american entertainment blog that I started back around late 2009 and I maintained for quite sometime, doing fairly well with google adsense. Only recently (a couple of years ago) I let that website go out of my lack of passion for that particular niche. My very first inspiration for starting that blog, was her. Ironically, it seems around the same time I stopped writing, she also ended NecoleBitchie and went a different direction with her blogging as well.
3. What is your favorite meal?
Hahahaha…. I had to laugh inside and out when I saw this question because really, WHAT ISN’T MY FAVORITE. I am really trying to make better meal choices especially since I am getting older, but my favorite meal would consist of fried chicken wings, collard greens, home made mac & cheese, caesar salad and some tiramisu for a dessert. OH man, another one of my guilty pleasures is Texa’s Roadhouse’s snake bites for an appetizer. They really hold a dear place in my heart, lol. What can I say, this girl LOVES to eat 😉
4. Who is my favorite singer?
Marvin Gaye. Do I really need to explain why? Hmm… I’ve always loved R&B, soul, and motown. In my opinion, he was flawless in all three genres. My choices after that would include Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.
5. If I could be a car, what would I choose to be?
A Buick Cascada. Why, you ask?? It’s american made (like me), it’s unique yet distinctive (I don’t see many on the street where I live), it’s reliable and safe (again, like me lol), and super sharp! If anyone wants to gift me with anything, I would be verrrry thankful to get this beautiful car. *hint, hint*
Lastly, Here is the link to my best post as of today (total views for 2017) :
Okay, so with that done and over with, now here is the fun part!! I get to nominate 10-15 bloggers of my own choosing and give them some questions to ponder on as well 🙂
