This is my first time doing this. Thank you, Grace, for tagging me in this activity. It seems like a great way to share more about myself and learn more about my fellow bloggers.
Grace is the author of Sandier Pastures and she’s one of the first bloggers that I found and followed on Twitter when I moved to the UAE. I appreciate that even though she’s a more experienced blogger, she is very personable and welcomes communication. Although we’ve never met in person, Grace has been a great resource for me during my first year of blogging.

- Answer the 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you.
- List 11 bloggers. (I’ll list as many as I can. I may not know 11.)
