Tour Through Blogland/Tributes to Writers Tag

I was tagged in the Tour Through Blogland tag. I was tagged by my lovely blog friend Katrina. If you are tagged answer the questions I answered. 

What am I working on?
I've been working on so many blog designs. Currently I have 12 or so to do. Even though I know that most people would find that hectic, I really enjoy helping people out with their designs. I've also been working on my design shop. Since my designs will no longer be free I must figure out a way to let people pay for them. I've been looking all over for a way to make a little shop on my site but it's harder than it seems. I've also been taking pics of my little sis which I will post right after this. :)

How does my work differ from others from its genre?
I think my blog has a lot of options for people. I share do-it-yourself projects, recipes, photography, and blog design tips. Sometimes I show a glimpse of my life and share my writing pieces. I'm not one of those people who pretends to be perfect so I try to tell my readers about the good and not so good days in my life.

Why do I write/create what I do?
I write and create what I do because I simply love to do it. I love sharing easy diy ideas, and bits and pieces of my life. I'm so glad I'm apart of this blogger community where I know I have so many internet friends that got my back. It's great to know that i have so many friends from all over the world. I wish that someday, all the teen Christian bloggers could meet. Now that would be epic!

How does your writing/creating process work?
Well first of all, I try to think of something original for a post. I don't want to copy what other bloggers have done. I rather think up my own unique idea. If I ever have writers block I simply do a life update or maybe share a poem.

You're supposed to nominate three bloggers, so here I go.:)

I nominate:
Sarah Grace- Her blog is full of lovely photography and writing pieces. It's always a joy to see a new post from her. :)

Bethan-Her blog is just so awesome. She loves to read (like me), and she has such a beautiful writing style.

Danielle-Her blog is amazing. :)  I love her post and her giveaways! I'm in awe of her amazing photography!

1. Answer All Questions
2. Put the picture in your post (has to be linked back to Jollygirl)
3. Tell what you love about writing (if you like writing. if you don't, then you don't have to do this award)
4. Share one piece of writing.
4. Nominate 3 other writers/ bloggers. (no tag backs) and make up 5 new questions for them to answer.
5. Have fun!


1. What is your favorite type of writing?
I really love poetry. To me, they're so beautiful. I like how everyone seems to find a different meaning of what a poem means.

2. When did you start writing?
I've always loved to write. When I was around 10 I started writing songs about Jesus's love and nature. Then I started writing poems. I never really thought I had a talent for writing until I entered my poem in 4-H and won grand champion. Not that I think I'm a great writer now but I just never knew people would even like what I wrote.

3. Your favorite author?
Oh goodness! Hmmm... Let's see.
Lois Lowry.

4. Have you ever finished a novel?
I've started many novels about futuristic alternate societies, but I've never finished them. Maybe I could share them with you all sometime if you like. I am currently writing a short story for school. It's going to be based in World War II and I've thought of a really cool storyline to go along with it.

5. On a scale of one to ten what would you rate writing?

Why I like writing:
I like writing because I can express my thoughts, hopes, and even fears in ways speaking can not. I think writing is a way for people like me, to show who they are and who they hope to become.

A piece of my writing:
Why Rush
To tell you the truth,
I'm not in a rush to grow up.
Some girls
are in such a hurry to
to be independent
and go out in the world alone.
But as for me...
I'm not in a rush.
I want to savor each moment of my childhood
and my teen hood.
I'm not the kind of girl who is anticipating her future,
or living in her past.
I just want to be me.
Right here.
Right now.
Because I can't go back in time,
or speed up the clock.
I want to just live,
and be thankful for every moment.
I have my whole life ahead of me.
Why rush?

I tag:
Anna-She definitely has a knack for writing and it shows through her blog (Banana and Bear). 

Celia-Her blog (Crazy,Crazy,Crazy) is full of lovely poems and stories. They're absolutely beautiful!

Brittany-I love to read her stories. Her writing is amazing. She is such a talented young lady. (Daughter of the King)
