When I was on holiday, I was nominated for the 'Versatile Bloggers Award' by Teagan Kearney. Apologies for taking so long to reply. It's another first for me because when I started blogging at the beginning of the year I knew nothing about these awards.
In Teagan's words, they are 'a generous way to highlight and share blogs with others.' I am always amazed not only at the huge range of writing blogs on offer to read and follow but also how varied in content and format they are!
What are the rules of the Versatile Bloggers Award?
- Thank the person who nominated you. So a big thank you from me to Teagan! It's very kind of you.
- Include a link to her blog: http://writingmynovelnoworkingtitleyet.blogspot.co.uk/
- Nominate 15 bloggers.
- Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
7 Random Things About Me
- I love watercolour paintings especially of landscapes like this one entitled 'Rock Farm' by Gillian McDonald. A limited edition print of it hangs on our sitting room wall.
- I daydream a lot, having lots of plans but many never get finished. 'Procrastination is my middle name!'
- I used to teach ceramics. A visit to a craft fair recently made me want to start again and create something beautiful from a lump of clay.
- Chocolate and Bailey's with Ice are my two downfalls so this post, 'Afternoon Delight', on Face Book really appealed.
- The smell of summer Jasmine late in the evening reminds me of when we visited my aunt for the first time in Spetses, Greece.
- I drink Earl Grey tea.
- A big Archers' fan, I have listened to the programme since I was a small girl.
My 15 nominees:
To you all,
I am nominating you because I enjoy reading your blogs. Please feel free to accept or decline. Unlike me, many of you are experienced bloggers and may already hold the award.
