Wow! I am extremely honored to be nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Strange Girl Gaming has been following me for the majority of the time that I’ve been writing on here, so a huge thank you to her for not only the nomination, but for being a friendly face to a newcomer! I strongly encourage you to check out her awesome takes on the Dark Souls series, especially the boss breakdowns. But don’t stop there: she has a ton of other great content, including her recent adventures with a shiny, new Nintendo Switch!
Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you in a blog post and link back to their blog.
Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.
The questions I have been asked are:
1. What is your favourite super power?
-If I got to choose a power, it would probably be teleportation. I could go anywhere, see anything, and get around without needing a vehicle. “Dang, it’s hot today.” *POOF* “Hello, Alaska!”
2. What is your favourite fighting game series?
-I’ve honestly never been a big fan of traditional fighting games, so I’m going to have to go with Super Smash Bros. I enjoy the freedom of movement and all-around chaotic atmosphere.
3. If you could spend a day with your favourite video game character who would it be and why?
-I would spend my day with Geralt of Rivia. He’s a sarcastic, no-nonsense badass who would be a blast to hang out with, whether we were playing Gwent for fun, drinking some fine brews, or wandering through a monster-less forest.
4. Star Wars or Star Trek?
-Star Wars, hands down. The combination of sci-fi and fantasy is just flawless.
5. Who is your favourite starting Pokemon from the original series?
-I’m going to have to go with the very first pal I ever chose when I started up Pokémon Red about 20 years ago: Charmander. He will always be my favorite starter. Fun fact: I still have my original Charizard on my copy of Pokémon Stadium!
6. You have to survive the night being hunted by Mike Myers, Jason Vorhees, Pyramid Head or Mileena, who would you survive against?
-*reads question, sees options* “…Well, I’ve really enjoyed blogging for you guys, but it’s time to say farewell!”
7. What do you do to relax?
-Aside from the obvious gaming and writing, I love to walk at the park while listening to music. It’s the best way to wind down from a busy day.
8. What is your favourite TV series?
-Game of Thrones probably takes my top spot for current shows, but I’m also obsessed with Impractical Jokers. I’ve seen every episode multiple times.
9. Sci-Fi or Horror?
-My taste in either genre is very specific, so I’m declaring a tie.
10. Where would you love to go on holiday?
-I’ve always wanted to visit the Emerald Isle and partake of true Irish brews and cuisine. To top it off, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking.
11. What is it you like about blogging?
-I just love to talk about video games. It gives me a place to write out my thoughts and imaginings while also trying to reach others with a similar mindset. Creative writing has always been my constructive outlet for all of life’s ups and downs. I don’t quite feel whole without it.
That’s it for questions, so now it’s my turn to return the favor for my nominees.
- We’re back in the 90s: are you Team Mario or Team Sonic?
- Which of the four seasons is your favorite, and why?
- What is your favorite horror movie monster/villain?
- You are given the opportunity to join either the Jedi, the Witchers, or become a Pokémon Trainer: which do you choose?
- What is your favorite movie of all time?
- What type of music do you listen to the most?
- You are hired to write a daily blog about whatever topic you want, but it can only be one topic. What do you choose?
- Left Twix or Right Twix?
- Cats or dogs?
- A zombie enters your room and the item to your right becomes your only defense against it. Do you survive?
- What is your long-term goal as a blogger? Earning a living? Personal fulfillment? Or something else entirely?
