The Cheer all Year Tag!

Today I've created the Cheer all Year tag!



This was my first time creating a picture for a tag. It's a little messy, but maybe I'll get better as I experiment more. This design for the tag is taggable until 2015, meaning you can use it as a tag until that point, but after that an updated version will come out and the design will get better and better every year. After 2015, this version does not count. Why am I doing this? I want to watch my tag grow and evolve, and in a few years when I've hit a large amount of followers I'll have a collection of older versions that I can peruse. It will also help my tag become more successful if I'm able to see what aspects of it are the better ones. Anyway, here's the tag.

Cheer all Year!!!
 
The Rules:
1. Answer all the questions with detailed, thoughtful answers
2. Take your time. It's a long tag, so don't feel pressured to finish it right a way.
3. Always put three exclamation marks after Cheer all Year
4. No tag-backs
5. Link back to the blogger who nominated you
6. Nominate two other bloggers, let them know, and read and comment on their post
7. HAVE FUN!!!

Cheers!!! 

Note: To answer, I suggest copy pasting each part and answering one at a time, then copying the whole thing and pasting it so the nominees can answer it easily.


My Answers!
Here are my answers. I did not answer above because the nominees will be able copy and paste it easily without my answers getting in the way.

Part one: Cheering you up!!!
1. What makes you cheery when you feel down?
Writing!
2. What do others do to cheer you up?
They will often engage me in conversations I find interesting.
3. Who cheers you up the most?
My friends and family.
4. What colours make you feel cheery?
Vibrant, happy colours like pink, yellow, and lilac.
5. What activities do you do to cheer up?
I do things that will take my mind off of whatever is pulling me down, like reading, writing, blogging, or even sleeping. It really works!

Part two: Cheering others up!!!
1. What do you do to cheer others up?
It depends on the person. Sometimes, Ill talk to them about things that they really enjoy, or I will do other things so they can take their mind off whatever is bothering them.
2. What do people like about you that makes them feel cheery?
I think it is my sense of humour. I always manage to find humour in situations that would otherwise be really disheartening. This does not mean I laugh at my friend's dog's grave, but I always try to find a silver lining amongst the grey skies.
3. Do you enjoy cheering up others? What do you feel after cheering them up?
I like cheering others up because it makes me feel like I have done something good. In fact, it cheers ME up!
4. What is the best way to spread Christmas cheer in your opinion?
I think it is warmth. Warmth as in a smiling at a lonely girl across the street, or as in hugging a friend in need, or as in brewing a cup of hot chocolate after sledding for hours and hours.

Part three: Cheery stuff!!!
Create your own verse of My Favourite Things from The Sound of Music. It does not have to rhyme, but if you want, go for it.

Crisp paper parchment and fresh sharpened pencils
Old smelling novels and butterfly stencils
Clouds below rainbows and bright birds that sing
These are a few of my favourite things

Name the top ten things that make YOU feel cheery.
1. Clouds
2. Books
3. Loved ones
4. Butterflies
5. Cute animals
6. Rainbows
7. Writing
8. Stars
9. Trinkets.
10. When the elevator door opens the second you push the button

I nominate Kat and Lizzie!

    1. Thank you! And I love your picture! It's actually readable, whereas mine is a little busy.

    2. Thank you! Also, in your previous post I was reading that you were not sure about letting everyone know you issue. I'm not sure either. I don't want the world to know who is behind this blog but it would be nice for them to see me in a magazine and learn more about me. I think I'm going to go with just not telling everyone what issue I'm in. It is a really hard decision to make.

  2. I love this idea for a tag! ^.^ And I saw your previous post (I'm so busy that if I do wish to comment on posts, I have to do one huge comment), and I agree with the anonymous thing! I want to be published sometime soon, but when that happens my blog is going to be revealed to the entire world and people from school will see which will be rather awkward >.< Well, hopefully something can be figured out by then!

    xoxo Morning

    1. Thank you so much! I totally understand, I sometimes feel pressured to comment on every post, especially the ones by my loyal followers, I owe it to them. But I sometimes get too busy! And yes, I WANT to use my blog to help me become more successful, but it is really hard to decide what is anonymous enough.
