The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Megan메간 for the Versatile Blogger Award (VBA) nomination!

A description I found said this about the VBA. It’s a mutual admiration society where bloggers recognize their peers for writing quality blogs that touched them in some way. The VBAs honor the blogger rather than specific posts. It’s a chance for bloggers to pat themselves on the back like the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does with the Oscars. Until someone starts giving out Blogscars, the VBAs will have to suffice.

Here are the rules when selected for the Versatile Blogger Award.

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to the VBA site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Ok, I’ll start with the 7 things about me. This part does not appeal to me…dreading this, ha. I’d much rather be asked questions versus me talking about myself. Forgive me if they are lame.

1. I have lived in the same house my whole life

2. I love spicy food…I’m talking habanero or hotter spicy.

3. I haven’t driven since August 19, 2001 (Not by choice)

4. I do not like scary movies. I hate the anticipation of being scared.

5. I went skydiving for my 30th birthday.

6. Sometimes I’m scared I’m fighting a fight I can’t win.

7. I hate going a day without music

Now another difficult part, choosing 15 bloggers. I’d love to give it to all of you. If I nominate you don’t feel pressured to complete the requirements. I just wanted you to know I appreciate your blog and you supporting mine. In no specific order:

      Thank you mysterious Chatty Owl! 🙂 I’m flattered to hear you say that. One more award and then I can get back to posting. Not enough hours in the day, ha. At times those fears seem heavier and darker than others. Thanks for the encouragement 🙂

      • Chatty Owl says:

    Congrats on the award! I’ve only recently started up again, and I’m glad to have found your blog. (Oooh, and a whole list of new blogs to check out.)

    I LIKE mutual admiration societies. Connecting with people and sharing thoughts and ideas creates hope and energy. It helps to know that there are other people going through it.

    You said, “Sometimes I’m scared I’m fighting a fight I can’t win.” I’m giving you a big hug. We all feel that way. I know that I feel that way daily. I cope with it, but it’s always there.

    I have a ton more to say, your blogs have inspired me to write several times, but it feels a bit impolite to spew on your blog and I’ve ended up not posting it. So I’m going to go write my big ol’ Robert story on my blog, it’ll be up soon. ~ Namaste!
