Good news, everyone: Julie from Just a Girl and a Bike has nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you!!
Something super cool is happening here at But Why?: I’m 75 followers shy of 1000.
1000? For real?!
When I nervously published my first post, I didn’t expect any views, let alone likes or comments. Now, to have connected with almost 1000 followers… It’s unbelievable. Everyone has helped me grow and learn so much since October 2015. To each and every one of you: thank you!
To celebrate this *almost* achievement, let’s connect on social media.
There’s a saying that things happen in threes. When it comes to this blog, though, it sure seems like good things occur in groups of two: both Johnny from sci.casual and 200 Saturdays until Paris have nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you both! 🙂
Both of these blogs are awesome, though their topics differ greatly. Sci.casual is all about science, and you know what I love? Science. Don’t let my creativity-based blog fool you — I was almost a geologist. 200 Saturdays until Paris has recently posted some great personal growth pieces that I absolutely adore; you don’t need to love Paris to relate!
I’m positively honored to have been chosen for this award by both of these kick-butt blogs. Continue reading

I love Mondays.
Not only because I recently quit my job to focus on writing and had two recent journal publications. And it’s not only because I have exciting projects lined up, both with others and by myself. All of these rock, but there’s more to it than that.
The best thing about Monday is WordPress’s Community Pool.
Once upon a time, I took a mini-vacation from work, blogging, writing, life, etc. by traversing into the Adirondacks for a few days. Blogger awards must be in the air this spring, because while on hiatus, I received two nominations for the Blogger Recognition Award (right after my Liebster Award nominations just two weeks ago). Wow!
The past two weeks, I’ve been swamped with work from both of my jobs. On top of that, I’ve been working on a short fiction piece for the online journal 1:1000 as well as (perpetually) revising my YA dirt bike/gender novel.
