The “Shine On” Award

Last Updated on: March 31st, 2021

The Shine On Award is my third award (if anyone is counting!) in five months of blogging. I have to thank the blogger, Barb, at MY for nominating me. Yes, her blog is called MY. Why? Ask her!

Here is my award:



1. Display the award logo on your blog.

2. Link back to the person who nominated you. (I did, but then had to unlink to it as it became “broken.”)

3. State 7 things about yourself

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.

5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award requirements.

7 Things About Me 

  1. I am bisexual, I think. The ratio is probably 90/10, in favour of men, though. I could tell you some stories…but I won’t. Not yet, anyway!
  2. I just came out of the closet online.
  3. I have no idea how people are going to react.
  4. I don’t really care how people are going to react; I am still the same person I always was!
  5. I think that there is more acceptance these days about the “alternate” community. (I am not sure what the politically correct term is, but I think it’s something like BGLT=Bi/Gay/Lesbian/Transgendered community.)
  6. I recently met two women online who are BGLT and are wonderful poets, authors, etc…
  7. You can find out who they are in my next post, which will be about ebooks and them!

  1. Poetic Parfait where one of this blog’s commenters lowers her walls and unveils herself in her poetry. (Christy, you are welcome; this is one way for me to thank you for your support!)

  6. Raani York’s blog, where she writes from the viewpoint of a couple of cats!

      Thanks, Krystle! It hasn’t changed my daily life, though. Probably because only people on the internet know…

  1. Just spotted your blog and had a good laugh at the comments page Mr Opinionated could have accepted your award in the time he took to respond to all your comments – I huess that’s how he stays true to his name heh!
    Well done and keep shining!

      Hmmm. Had to look this one up. Defense of Marriage Act = DOMA.
      I agree with same-sex marriages, and am pleased to hear of this good news in California today.

      Thanks for enlightening me, Jeri!

  2. Christy Birmingham says

    Thank-you, sweet friend for the words and you already knew to say you’re welcome to me hehehe you know me for how grateful I always am! 😀

  3. Fearless Leader says

    Thank you very much, Lorraine! It’s quite an honor to be nominated for such a nice award by such a wonderful young lady. While my blog deals with “less mainstream” subject matter than the other nominees, Dumbasses need love and recognition too. 🙂

    Yes I enjoy reading I hesitate when nominated before now I done it once and found Phew! that was a job and a half, but it was fun to do. I appreciate the readers and the work that all of us put into our posts. I have been thinking of changing the name of my blog now to one of my most important poems I have written “Un Puzzled Heart” Writing that was a turning point. Time for a change of name.

    This certainly has a bit more heft to it than most “Tell US 7 Things About You” blog entries I’ve seen. I’m always struggling to think of something that is both interesting and something I want the world to know, and I usually end up with some like:
    1. I’ve been to 45 states.
    2. Uhm, I think yellow Starbursts are fairly okay, really.

    And it just goes downhill from there. Good on you, have something important to say, instead. Thanks for including me on the list!

      I tend to go for the shock factor. Just to see if the peeps are listening!

      Oh, and you’re welcome. 🙂
