And the Nominees Are

And the Nominees Are…

I was truly surprised and thrilled that The Retiring Sort nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  I want to thank her very much for selecting me for the award.  It was wonderful a surprise and motivator.

Then she kindly explained the award process and rules to me, because I didn’t have a clue. I took a little bit of time to read the rules, so I could do it right.  The rules for accepting the award are:

  1. Add the award to your blog
  2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you
  3. Mention 7 random things about yourself
  4. List the rules (these are the rules)
  5. Pass on the award to 15 bloggers or as many as you reasonably can.
  6. Inform the newly nominated by commenting on their blogs

Seven random things about me are:

  1. Blackberries are my favorite fruit.
  2. I have gone caving.
  3. I love animals and have a dog.
  4. I was named for a character in an old movie, which is odd because I like old movies. Karma.
  5. I always carry moleskin patches on long trips and hikes to prevent blisters.
  6. I love travelling and reading humorous travel books.
  7. I enjoy learning about other cultures and cuisine, and I like to cook.

I would like to pass on the award to 17 other bloggers and shine the light on interesting, versatile bloggers.  I wasn’t able to bring it down to 15.  The blogosphere is a global community of fascinating people who write imaginative blogs and post great photos.  There are so many more I could think of.

I understand that someone may prefer not to go through awards process; I won’t be offended if you choose not to.   I hope these blogs will shine the light on some other interesting, imaginative blogs in our community through nomination process.  Thank you.

If you’ve never checked out there blogs before, I hope you will stop by their blog for look.
