1st Blogiversary Q&A

Today is my 1st Blogiversary!! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. :) I have had a lot of fun blogging, and hope to continue having more fun. 
Thank you so much to everyone who submitted questions. I had a ton of fun answering them. :D 
Okay, now to get on with the questions and my answers! I put down who asked the question and all of the questions that they asked. 

~Katie Grace~
What is your favorite book cover? 
I have quite a few favorite book covers, but one of them is The Guardian by Beverly Lewis. 
What was the last song you listened to?  
The last song that I listened to was Hold My Heart by Tenth Avenue North.

~Blessing Counter~
How have you enjoyed blogging so far? 
I’ve really enjoyed blogging so far! It has been a lot of fun. :)
Any thing you've learned since you've entered that thing called the blogosphere? ;) 
Writing book reviews are not as easy as I thought they'd be. ;) When I started this blog, I was planning on writing quite a few book reviews, but I soon found out that I'm not too good at it, but they can still sometimes be fun. ;)
How many blogs have you found in the last year?  
Probably around 15 that I regularly look at. 
What's your favourite part about being a blogger?  
Making blogger friends! 
(now for some not-blogger-related questions) (they're also extremely random. . . ) 
Would you rather eat snake or crocodile? (or is it alligator, I don't quite remember :P) 
Umm…neither. But if I had to choose then I guess I’d go with crocodile since it's "supposed" to taste like chicken, but I don't want to find out. 
Would you prefer to never read again or never write again?  
I would prefer to never write again. I’m not really a writer so I wouldn’t mind much, but I love to read.
What is your favourite dessert?  
Chocolate chip cookies. 
What is the last book you read? Did you enjoy it?  
The Wish by Beverly Lewis and yes, I really liked it. :)
Would you prefer pink roses or red roses? 
Red roses are my favorite, although pink are super pretty too. 
Favourite book from the last year?  
Oh, that's a hard question. I've read a lot of great books this year so far, but I think I'll go with either The Wish by Beverly Lewis or The Last Ride by Susan K. Marlow.
How long did it take you to answer all my questions? ;) 
Maybe around 10 minutes. ;)

~Faith P.~
What made you want to start a blog? 
Well, around July of 2015 I started reading a couple of different blogs and started to think that it would be fun to start one. It just looked like a lot of fun. So I finally decided to last October, and I’m glad that I did.
What are your favorite type of posts to share?
Book related posts are my favorite to share. Book tags, book recommendations, pretty much anything to do with books. ;)
How many blogs do you follow (feel free to be approximate ;))?  
I follow about 13.
What's your top five favorite books of all time?
A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette Oke, When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke, Child of Mine by David and Beverly Lewis, the Millie Keith series by Martha Finely (adapted by Kersten Hamilton), and the Circle C series by Susan K. Marlow. 
What's your favorite food?  
Homemade pizza. 
Would you mind terribly to be caught on foot in a thunderstorm a mile from home? 
Yes, I think I would, but it would be so much better if I got caught in a thunderstorm with someone with me. ;) 
What's your favorite animal?
I’m really not an animal person, but if I had to choose a favorite then I’d say kittens. They are just so adorable. 

If you could play another instrument what would it be?
Probably the piano. I did take piano lessons for a year when I was 14, but I liked the violin much better, but if I was going to choose another instrument to stick with it would most likely be piano.
If you could read five books every year, what five books would you read?
This is such a hard question! Well, if I could only read 5 books next year I guess I’d choose these 5:
The Newcomer by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Courageous Love by Susan K. Marlow
The Ebb Tide by Beverly Lewis
When Tides Turn by Sarah Sundin
Salty Kisses by Robin Jones Gunn
If you could have anything in the world what would it be?
That's a good question, but I cannot think of anything.
If you could travel to 2 place in the world where would you travel?
Well, I would love to go to Pennsylvania again. My mom and I went to Lancaster County last fall and it was so much fun, I'd love to go again. I would also like to go to North Carolina one day to visit a friend of mine. 

~Kaitlyn K.~
Do you play any instruments?  
Yes, I play the violin. 
Any pet peeves?  
My biggest pet peeve is when somebody kills a bug for me, but doesn’t wash their hands. It might sound kind of strange, but it is so disgusting. 
If you're stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere and can have only one thing to help you survive, what (besides water) would you choose?  
The first thing that comes to me is a weapon of some sort so I could protect myself. 
If you were given the chance to go to one place of your choice wherever in the world, where would you go? 
Since I chose Pennsylvania and North Carolina above, I'd choose Alaska. I would love to go there. I would like to go to the Iditarod Race Headquarters and other places. :)
What's your favorite hymn? 
Be Thou My Vision and It Is Well With My Soul.
What's your favorite season and/or month? Least favorite? 
My favorite season is fall and winter. I don't really have a least favorite, but if I had to choose then I'd say spring. The thing that I don't like about spring is that's the time all of the bugs come back, but I really like the flowers and the beautiful weather. 
Cat or dog? (Please please please say dog!!;)) 
Sorry, Kaitlyn. I’m going to have to go with cats. ;)
Can you sing? 
I like to sing, although I'd never sing a solo. I really only sing at church and along with the radio when I'm alone in the car. 
What's your favorite TV show genre?  
Family friendly drama with a bit of romance. 

What's your favorite part about having a blog?
My favorite part of having a blog is making blogger friends and thinking up fun posts to do, although that part can be a bit hard sometimes.  

Why do you not like apple pie?
I don't know, I just don't really care for any kind of pie. Although I haven't tried apple pie in a long time, so I might actually like it now since I do like apple goodie.
Do you like the story of the Titanic? 
Umm…I guess so. It’s a sad story, but it is fascinating to learn about. 
How much tea do you drink a day?
Not as much as Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty, which is 2 gallons a day. (Not that I watch Duck Dynasty much, but my brothers do and they think it's hilarious.) 
Do you like animals?
Not too much. There are a lot of animals that are pretty cute, but I prefer looking them. I don't like them to get too close to me and I don't like to touch them.

If you had to write a book what genre would it be and what would it be about?
If I were to write a book it would be a modern day love story. It would be about two people who met on the beach, fell in love, and ended up having a beautiful October wedding. :) 

Well, I hope you all enjoyed this as much as I did!! Thanks again for all the questions! :D


  1. HAPPY FIRST BLOGIVERSARY, REBEKAH!! :D That's so awesome; congratulations!! :) *hands you chocolate chip cookies and milk* I saw this post about an hour after went up yesterday, read through it with laughs and smiles, but then had to do 'that school thing' and I'm just now getting back to comment. :) (I'll *try* not to comment on every. single. thing. but no promises. ;))

    Ahh, yes, The Guardian has a really pretty cover. :)
    Hold My Heart – I love that song! <3
    Haha, I know what you mean about book reviews. ;) Mine always end up waaaaayyy too long or waaaayyyy to short. :P
    *snickers at the questions* I've had alligator (I think that's what it was anyway...) and it did taste like chicken. ;)
    The Wish was sooo good!! :D So was The Last Ride.
    10 minutes – wow, you're good! *highfive* Writing posts often take me one and a half eons. XD
    Homemade pizza is so good!!! *is about to have pizza for lunch*
    Haha, yes, I wouldn't mind to be caught in a thunderstorm WITH someone either. ;)
    Kittens are really cute. <3
    Courageous Love! The Ebb Tide! When Tides Turn! Salty Kisses! *grins*
    *squeals over the question* YES YES YES!!! Come to NC!!! That would be so awesome, ahhhh!!! :D :D
    Seeing the Iditarod race headquarters would be so cool. :D
    James' questions made me laugh. XD "Why do you *not* like apple pie?" Haha! What's apple goodie?
    Haha, I'm not sure if anyone drinks as much tea as Si. XD Yeah, my bro likes that show too. ;)
    Oh, that would be a beautiful story, Rebekah!! :)

    Goodness....what a comment. :P I enjoyed the post!

    1. Thank you so much, Faith!! :D I’m glad you enjoyed reading through it. :)

      I just love the cover of “The Guardian”. :) It’s so cute. :)
      Me too! Tenth Avenue North has some great songs.
      My book reviews always end up being super short. I never know what to say besides, “This is a really good book.” ;) It shouldn’t be that hard though. ;) Oh, I think you write really great reviews. :)
      You’ve had alligator before? And it actually did taste like chicken? Well, I’ll just take your word for it. ;)
      Yes, both “The Wish” and “The Last Ride” were super good! :)
      Oh, well, it only took me around 10 min. to answer Blessings questions. It took me quite awhile to put this post together and answer all the questions. ;)
      All of those books that are coming out next year sound so good!
      YES! It would be so awesome!!! :D
      Apple goodie is the same as apple crisp, just with a different name. When my mom and I were in Lancaster County everybody called apple crisp apple goodie, so I started to also. ;)
      Thank you, Faith! :D If I was ever to try writing something, it would be that story. ;)

      Thanks so much for submitting all your questions, Faith!!! :D

    2. :)
      Oh, okay. Apple crisp is great! I knew I had heard of apple goodie in some books, but I wasn't sure what it was. ;) I'm going to be calling it that now. :P

  2. Happy blog anniversary Rebekah!
    I enjoyed learning more about you. Just to let you know, alligator does not taste like chicken. :) It tastes good though, especially with a little spices sprinkled and cooked on it. I've had some before, and we are about to have some again because we went alligator hunting during the season. :)

    Love in Christ,
    Ashley - I hope you check out my shop. :D

    1. Thank you so much, Ashley!! :D
      I’m glad you enjoyed it. :) Oh, okay. Yeah, I’ve never tried alligator before, but the way you mentioned it sounds like it would be good. Really? That’s cool. I don’t know of anyone else who has ever gone alligator hunting.
      Thanks for commenting, Ashley! I’ll be sure to check out your blogs! :)
