When it’s ‘OK’ to be a Follower

26 Jul

Seriously, why do you guys spoil me so? LOL

It always makes feel all … I don’t want to say warm and fuzzy, but ya know— Good and shit… when I come back after days (see: weeks) of not physically adding a post, only to find things like this waiting for me!: Best Follower Award.

And yeah, I know the term “Follower” has a stigma attached to it, ‘cause really didn’t we ALL want to be the “Leader” in ‘Follow the Leader’ in school? But, in this case— I’ll take it!

And I have Nicole over at NMPHX to thank for that! Now, in truth I’m probably one of the worst followers on the face of the planet… Why, you ask? Because, though, I will faithfully follow your blog, and even pimp out your blog for others to read, I will 9 times of 10 completely forget to comment. *hangs head in shame* but I’m so thankful for bloggers like Nicole, who know that I AM here, and I DO support—I’m just a lazy commenting bum. (I plan on changing that btw, I promise) …

Now you know what time is it! Time for the Rules:

1.   Thank the giver, link the page, and add the award to your site.

Check, Check, and I will see if I can add another pic … but I might need assistance with this.

2.   Answer the question: “Who was my first follower?”

Yikes! I have no idea, and I apologize for that … :-/ I wanna say it’s my cousin Ritha or maybe my cousin Melissa… but either way, yeah it was one of my cousins lol

3.   Pass it on to your three Best Followers. 

Now I can’t send it to Nicole, even though she really is one of my best followers (Booo!!)

So, I literally cheated went and looked through those who have commented the most, and would like to thank them for that! 🙂

Just Call Me Raegen another blogger who I follow faithfully—and never fails to make me laugh, yet I don’t always remember to comments *head still hung in shame*

Single White Dating Female  Who also has me literally ‘Laughing out Loud’ at some of her dating encounters—even when I’m not sure if I should be laughing. Sorry!


Moments with the Madame this may or may not be the blog of one of my aforementioned cousin’s who actually started me on blogging. Also, get your minds out of the gutter, btw, ‘cause she’s not an actual ‘madame’ in that sense. 😉

So, yeah … I think that’s it!! Thanks again!! 🙂 Have YOU thanked a fellow follower lately? I think you should! Like now … Get! Go on! Why are you still reading? Haha sorry, I’m in a goofy mood today! :-p

How would you describe yourself? One word: Awesome 😀

What Countries have you lived in? United States of America, Haiti
What is your style? Errr… If we’re talking about fashion… I just like to match. I don’t think I fall into a particular category.

What are some of your hobbies? Reading, writing, blogging, listening to music, annoying my sister.
If you could tell people anything, what would be the most important thing to say? I would tell people they need to enjoy every moment that they can and don’t sweat the small stuff… Life is too short!
What is one of your passions? Breathing! I love to breathe… ‘cause if I wasn’t breathing, we’d have some serious problems! :-p But seriously, writing. My passion is writing and I’m trying my hardest to get back into like I used to be.
What is the one truth you have learned? I guess going back to #8- I definitely learned the hard way that every second counts. I don’t ever want to be in the position, again, where I can’t do tomorrow, the things I took for granted today.
