the mystery blogger award (again)

I was nominated for the mystery blogger award (again) (as the title says; see the first rendition here) by C.M.! Thank you kindly, my friend. (Readers, go check out her blog.)

I was also… sort of… nominated by Lemon. (She said she wasn’t going to nominate me because I’d already been nominated… so she left it open to anyone who wanted to do the tag… and after reading the questions she asked her nominees, I decided I wanted to answer them.)

  1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
  2. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.

  • Emily Starr — she declares she can’t help writing

What was the first blog post you ever wrote?

When I was eleven, I wrote a blog post about the three dance recitals I was in that year. (I had a private blog which was then called “inkling.” When I created this blog, I moved my favorite posts from the previous one over. My first post ever didn’t make it.)

What is your favorite song/artist at the moment?

I’ve been listening to BYU Vocal Point a lot lately. Some of my favorite of their songs are “Nearer My God To Thee,” “Homeward Bound,” and “Be Still My Soul.”

  • “Be Thou My Vision” by BYU Noteworthy
  • “How Great Thou Art” by Eclipse 6
  • “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables” by Collabro
  • “This My Soul,” “Sirens,” and “Diamonds and Gold” by The Gray Havens
