i’ve been nominated

I would like to thank Pete Denton for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Here are the rules:

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass this award along to 15 or 20 other bloggers.   

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Seven things:

#1  I love watching shows about engineering, history, and how obscure things connect or reading stuff on the Internet about those same things.  Currently, I’m really interested in Roman roads and architects.

#2  I am one of those rabid Eric Johnson fans.  Thankfully, the disease isn’t so bad that I believe he truly is a god.  I still believe he’s very much a human with mortal tendencies, including some occasional weaknesses .  Oh, but just to mention, he’s on tour right now!  Check out his website for actual where-is-he-playing information, his tour blog at Tumblr, or his page on Facebook.

#3  I don’t have cable.

#4  My favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life, though Sense and Sensibility almost ties it.

#5  I have no pets.

#6  This is currently my favorite YouTube video.

#7  I have a strange compulsion to watch shows with British accents and period clothing.  If a maid is also crying, I can’t look away.

I’m supposed to nominate 10 to 15 people.  Considering how little time I have, this is going to take a while.  I have no idea if there’s a deadline on this either.  I hope not.

Nominations:

Susan K. Coleman – a blog about both music and writing.  Recently, she’s talked about her manuscript, decluttering, and a Swedish band that sounds like it came from Nashville.

Tea Rose Home – I hope she accepts this award.  I’ve always been impressed by her creativity.

Aly Hughes Writes – a fun blog about writing and other bits.

Blogging Bellita – a great blog about attraction, finding a good man, and being a fantastic woman.

My Delicious Ambiguity – a blog dedicated to celebrating (has a Montessori angle for the kids).

Sonia G. Madeiros – Challenges, thoughts, and more, all on writing.

Books Worth Reading – I love her book reviews

Red Lips and Academics – I get so nostalgic when I read her blog.  And I never got a degree.

Indulge – Travel, Adventure, and New Experiences – Obviously, it’s about travel, but there’s so much more, from art fairs to refugee camps to maternity lingerie.  I love it!

  1. Thank you for accepting.

    I wouldn’t worry about the timescale for nominating other sites. I took a few weeks to decide and I’ve seen several sites who’ve only nominated ten or so in return.

    Keep up the good work.
