The Versatile Blogger Award

I am new to the blogging world (I have been writing for a grand total of seven months). Aside from figuring out things like widgets and how to post videos, I have met some new friends. Although it remains mysterious to me that we can connect with without ever having laid eyes on one another, I am glad of this new community.

One new friend is the writer behind Outtakes on the Outskirts, where country life never goes as planned. I am drawn to her blog in part because of her natural writing style, but also because she has chickens! Seeing as I can’t have my own, following her stories are the next best thing.

Just this afternoon I received word that this new friend has awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award! What a delightful honour to be chosen. But this award comes with a few rules: I must nominate 15 other bloggers to receive the award  as well as post seven random things about myself. My list is a rather strange mish-mash of gardening, theology and witty writers. Some are blogs I follow regularly, others I only drop by now and again. All of them, however, I commend to you for your enjoyment. Here are my 15:

The 40 Bottle Project

New Kid on the Blog

The Mey-Me Monster 

Hortophile – My new garden

Beauty Tips for Ministers

Back Road Journal

A Convergence of Vision

Mirth and Motivation

Sylvia Maurice’s Blog

My Photo Journal

The Masters of Horticulture

Taking the Road Less Travelled

Freckles and Fickle take Over the World

Inspector Virgo

Colin’s blog: My thoughts on everything

The second part of accepting this award requires that I share seven random things about myself. Like Outtakes on the Outskirts who nominated me, I studied dance for a long time, until I was 18. I also edited my high school yearbook, have a Webkinz pet named Mrs. McFly and have a weakness for Warm Vanilla Sugar at Bath and Body Works. I don’t like french fries, never sing in the shower and can’t sit still if there’s funk playing anywhere within a mile and a half. Just ask my kids.

    Krisitine – thanks for the nomination! I guess I better get back and update my blog – been away for awhile now. That’s on my Fall List of toodoos!

    Cheers
    Lorraine
