  1. Vote for Me for one of BlogHer’s ‘Voices of the Year’?

    April 14, 2013 by Lady Unemployed

    I have no idea why I’m doing this and you guys are the only ones that know that I am. But on a lark, I decided to submit one of my posts to the BlogHer ‘Voices of the Year’ Conference.

    I submitted my post entitled, “The Sadness of Trauma (And My Brother’s Mental Illness)” published back in February.

    I would have no idea what I would say if I won – I mean, my blog is anonymous and this involves me going out into a public place to talk about my blog. What would I tell my job?

    Anyways, one step at a time. I may not win at all, but I figured, what’s the fun in not trying?

    If you could take the time, go to BlogHer and vote for my submission. You do have to create an account with BlogHer to vote.

    In the meantime, I’ll try not to spaz over the fact that I made a mistake in my submission. Yup, I won’t freak, I promise.


  2. Yay I’m Special – Blog Award!

    January 10, 2013 by Lady Unemployed

    I can’t believe it! I won the Liebster blog award from Daily Distraction!

    I feel so special!

    Here are the rules:

    This award is given to new or up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers…the award is then passed along to other bloggers in the same category to help spread the word and support one another.

    1. Each blogger should post 11 random facts about themselves.

    2. Answer the questions the tagger has set for you, then create 11 new questions for the bloggers you pass the award to.

    3. Choose 11 new bloggers (with less than 200 followers) to pass the award to and link them in your post.

    4. Go back to their page and tell them about the award.

    5. No tag backs.

    So, eleven facts about me.

    1) I drink between four and five cups of coffee a day. But I never finish a whole cup. I usually drink half or 3/4ths.

    2) I don’t believe karma has a true direction – just someone shooting arrows in the dark, hoping they get it right.

    3) My dream would be to write full time for a living.

    4) I actually found a Miley Cyrus song I liked (it’s called Stay, if you want to look it up).

    5) I’m a very messy person.

    6) I don’t know how to sew (not even a button).

    7) I hate watching people eat cereal.

    8) …holy crap it’s tough to think of 11 things…I’m 5’10.

    9) I always keep movie tickets.

    10) I don’t have any tattoos but if I ever got one it would be the title of my book if it ever got published.

    11) I like cutting in lines.

    Alright! And here are 11 questions I have to answer –
