I’ve Been Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!

The Versatile Blogger Award from SharonWow! What an honor!! My first “blogging” award EVER — The Versatile Blogging Award!!!!

Thank you, Sharon at Day in the life of a Busy Gal… blog! This was such a surprise! Sharon is an amazing woman and lovely writer! I love reading her posts! She is such an inspiration!

Now on to the VBA rules and my list of 15 nominated blogs.

I am choosing blogs I’ve just discovered and that have resonated with me on some level. You will see an eclectic mix here — different paths, crafts and occupations sprinkled with some good old-fashioned camaraderie! :) Enjoy!

VBA Rules:

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy. (check — see above)
  •  Include a link to their blog. (check — see above)
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (Okay, the VBA admin says to pick blogs that are “excellent”, however this is relative to each blogger. I am picking out blogs that I am glad I found, or that the post I found really resonated with me.) (check — see below)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site. (check — see below PS .. this is not easy and to be honest, I think 15 is FAR FAR FAR too many; 5 would have been so much easier)

7 Things about ME

  • I LOVE cats!
  • I just had a baby at age 42 6 months ago — William’s siblings are 22, 19, 18, and 16 from mom (me) and 20, 19, and 17 from dad — we have 8 all together now … whew!
  • I’m a Virgo with a Taurus moon and Pisces rising — I consider myself a picky (okay more perfectionist), earthy, mushy Virgo ;)
  • I procrastinate far too much but it is one of my goals for 2012 to be less of that ;) It’s harder than you think! LOL
  • My favorite holiday is Halloween — shocking! LOL
  • I’m a web designing, crafty witch who enjoys tarot and oracle card reading.
  • I LOVE Faeries, Gnomes and Dragons!

OMG … well, honestly, this wasn’t as fun as I thought.

I got through the 15 blogs. I love the concept of this … it could use some work and be tweaked. But I will gladly show off my new badge ;)

Thanks again, Sharon! You are a gem!!!

Now I am off to let these people know I nominated them with the Versatile Blogger Award.

  1. PS … in case some one is looking or reading .. I’m working on my own “award” with some less time consuming guidelines! Got any ideas??? Tell me what you think!

  2. Grats on the award. Agree that 15 is too many – 5-8 would be plenty. I also don’t really like the “things about me” – I’d rather see you focus on exactly why someone is getting the award. No idea for a name, though. Guess it depends on the stipulation of what blogs you pick….
    Hope that helps!

    • Thanks, Sunfire! As always, you are awesome! And you are absolutely right about the focus. I was brainstorming ideas last night with our fearless leader (Mary LOL) and then before I went to sleep. I think I’ve got a pretty good idea and this just adds to it! Still working on a name! I’m hoping to have a “beta” version ready by Friday :) It’s a good day!
