My Very First Writing Award.

Since joining the Writers’ Platform Building Campaign, I’ve been receiving quite a few comments on my blog, and I was quite surprised to receive one that said I was the recipient of The Versatile Blogger Award.  When I explained the award to my husband he said ‘Oh, a chain letter’, but I don’t look upon it that way.  I feel that after all these years of blogging, making numerous changes and wondering if anyone out there is actually reading what I have to say, I finally know that people are and I’m getting rewarded for my efforts.  So I give a big hearty thank you to Elizabeth Ann at ElizabethAnnWrites.

Now, like any grateful recipient, I have prepared my speech.  So, here are seven random facts about me, you probably just didn’t want to know:-

  1. My favourite colour is royal blue.
  2. I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher when I left school, but I didn’t get the marks to get in (I guess writing was my real calling).
  3. Sport doesn’t really do much for me.  Walking and playing on the Wii Fit is the best you’ll get from me these days.
  4. I hate clowns; always have.  I think they’re creepy.  I just have to think of John Wayne Gacy, which just about says it all really!
  5. I once won $100 on my first attempt at playing the poker machines.  I was happy to take the money and never play again.
  6. In my house, I’m the Zoo Keeper and Bejeweled Twist champion.
  7. I’m a tea person, not a coffee person.  I hate the smell of coffee and it gives me headaches (yet I can consume chocolate by the truckload – go figure)!

Now we come to the hardest part of receiving this award.  I have been visiting so many great blogs lately, I find it difficult to narrow my nominations down.  So because, like a good many of you, I’m flexible.  So here are my twelve nominations for this award:-

  1. Nicole Zoltack at Where Fantasy and Love Take Flight
  2. Susanna Leonard Hill
  3. Charmaine Clancy at Wagging Tales
  4. Renee at Books for Little Hands
  5. Helen Anderson at Helen Writes
  6. Cally Jackson
  7. Pauline at Pauline’s Prose
  8. Dawn Malone at Here’s the Story
  9. E. L. Schneider
  10. Heather at My Demon Spirits
  11. Dimity Powell at Dim’s Write Stuff
  12. Sabrina Llave at Little Red Writing Hood

I hope you’ll all take the time to visit these blogs.  As I’ve said there are many worthy blogs out there (too many to just narrow it down to so few), I aim to compile a list of other writing blogs in a future post.

I thank you and good night! 🙂
