Meet another amazing Nominee....
Sunny from Idyll Toast
What is your blog all about? 
Idyll Toast is my anything goes blog. I write another blog about coming to terms with the infidelity and sudden passing of my husband. While the process of writing that blog has been cathartic, the content can get heavy, not only for me, but for readers as well. I created Idyll Toast as the comedy to "Sunny Sings The Blues'" tragedy. They may appear to be very different blogs, but actually they are just two sides of the same coin. That coin being my life.

How long have you been blogging? 
I started Sunny Sings The Blues on 10/16/10, but Idyll Toast is still a baby. That blog is less than a month old.

What is your favorite part about blogging? 
For me, blogging is an opportunity to share my thoughts about life as I experience it, in a way that is genuine and honest. Ever since my husband died, I have found it really difficult to keep up appearances in the day to day. Particularly with regard to my career, since I deal with so much ugliness, I have since found it harder and harder to refrain from speaking my mind. It seems that people often miss out on the good things in life because they are so concerned with what others think, or with what they do not have, or with what is wrong in their lives. These days, I see thinking like that to be a huge waste of time, especially since I feel I missed out on many worthwhile moments with my husband because I was too busy sweating the small stuff. Life is unpredictable and it can be over in the blink of an eye. I for one want to make the most of it while I can. For me, that means living in the now, by simply being myself - even if I end up revealing to the world what a geek I truly am. Blogging is a way for me to open up and connect with others. Plus, it not only helps me heal from my loss as learn to live with my new normal, but from what people tell me, my words have also helped readers deal with their own trials, while also nudging them to make the most of their time while they are here. And to me, if I can be myself while helping others make their lives better, even if it's by giving them something as small as a chuckle, then it gives meaning to my loss and purpose to my life. Blogging is just one more outlet I have to help me get the most out of my life.

And what everyone wants to know what will you be wearing to the Bloscars? 
I have no idea! Oh my gosh...I have nothing to wear! And my hair is a mess. 
Thanks Sunny and GOOD LUCK!

  1. Lovely to meet a fellow nominee and what an open, honest and real blog it is!

    I have always found writing to be therapeutic and just a way of getting thoughts and feelings out and on is wonderful that blogs can do this as well!

    I experienced something this summer that showed me exactly what she mentions that, "Life is unpredictable and it can be over in the blink of an eye," and that was almost the case, but we got extremely lucky and this person is still here thanks to seconds, mere seconds and being in the right place at the right time, as they say.

    Very inspiring! All the best to Sunny and Break-A-Leg at the Bloscars!!! :)
