Blog Awards


This is a little overdue, but I wanted to make sure I did this post  because I did not forget about those that passed this along to me! I received the One Lovely Blog award from Frazzle and Aniploish, the Versatile Award from 7% Solution, and the Blogger Appreciation Award from Glitter Gloss and Glaze and Beauty By Arielle. All four of these bloggers are wonderful people! I have been keeping up with all of their posts since I discovered them and have always enjoyed reading and viewing what they have to share. Please take the time to check out their corners of the internet. They are amazing bloggers and genuine people! Thank you, ladies, for these blog awards! They really mean a lot, especially coming from each of you!

Because I didn't want to make this post too long, I'm just going to post the additional  questions about the Blogger Appreciation Award since this is a new award that I would definitely like to pass on to fellow bloggers!

The rules of the Award:
1.  Thank the person who gave you the award with their blog link on your post.
2.  Answer the following 4 questions.
3.  Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to as many readers/commenters/supporters/followers as you’d like.
4.  Let the blogger know you've just awarded them (by leaving a comment, a tweet, an email, etc.)

The questions:
1.  How long have you been blogging?
2.  What are 1-2 reasons why you started blogging.
3.  What types of blogs do you like to follow/read?
4.  What is 1 thing you would like to improve on as a blogger/on your blog?

My answers:
1.  I have been blogging for a little under 2 years now. I started blogging in July of 2010.
2.  I started blogging because I wanted somewhere separate to share pictures and thoughts from other networking sites. I felt like having a blog that was my own would be easier to share anything I wanted instead of being confined to just sharing things a certain way on different sites. I still use other networking sites, but I like to take care of drinkcitra.com like it's my kid lol. I also started a blog because I wanted to be in the blogger community. It's so vast and full of interesting people :)
3.  I like to read and follow all kinds of blogs.  I mainly follow nail blogs since that's all I post here right now, but I do enjoy beauty and fashion blogs too. I also enjoy photo, inspiring, life and blogs about random topics. I'm really open when it comes to blogs I find interesting.
4.  I've said this before, but I'd like to open up my blog to more topics than just nail-related posts. I didn't name it "nails by drinkcitra" or anything that has to do with nails because I knew it was only part of my blogging purpose. Hopefully in the future I will have the guts or the push I need to venture out.

I would like to award the Blogger Appreciation Award to the following supporters:

I would have named absolutely everyone, but that would have been way too long. I just wanted to say thanks again to all who have been reading my posts and leaving comments. You guys really keep me going and I really appreciate all the love <3

    1. Aw yay :) I'm glad you like reading these types of posts. Sometimes I feel hesitant about making long posts, but I guess it shouldn't matter as long as it's enjoyable? Lol. Oh that makes sense. I guess it's worth the wait if the price is good!

  9. OMG! Thank you very much for awarding meee:))))
    I enjoy reading your answers!! I didn't want to name my blog with nails-related something too, because nails are not going to be the main part of my blogging activity:D Totally agree with you:):D

  10. Thanks for the links to some great blogs! :) I've already clicked "follow" on Nail Noise and Art Evolve. (I clicked on Nail Noise first because I thought it was an interesting name, then decided I should start at the beginning, but I clicked both 7% Solution and Art Evolve and then looked at the second one first. ;) Regrettably I have to go to work now, so I shall have to systematically look through the rest of your list (the half of them I don't already follow, anyway :) and see if they all contain as great nail art as the first two I checked! YAY for more pretties to ogle! ;)

  12. Aww, thank you! This is so sweet. I really do encourage you to share other aspects of your life besides nail polish manis. It's an amazing feeling to be a part of the blogging community, and even more amazing once you're able to share other parts of your life to make your blog ever more so YOU. :] I've thought about creating a different blog for different aspects in my life, but then figured what's the point? Everything I blog about, even though they're all completely different and random, are the events in my life which make it MINE. :) I can't wait to see other posts you'll have in the future.
