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. 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!
