Very Inspiring Blogger Award

A couple of weeks ago I was reading a post by my favorite blogger, Bhavna Hinduja, author of Bhavna Hinduja on Being Simple, Sustainable & Mindful.  I was thrilled to see that she had been nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.  What I wasn’t prepared for was to read on and find that she had nominated me for the award as well.  Bhavna,thank you, I was, and still am, so grateful for your nomination!

Having only been a blogger for about a year and a half I really wasn’t sure what this meant.  So I did what any good student would do and “Googled it.”.   There I found a list of blog after blog who have received a nomination for this award.  All I could think was, “How cool.”  Honestly, I didn’t continue my research to learn more, and I realized that I don’t care whether there is a real award or not.  I love the concept and I love the rules.  It was such a good feeling to receive this nomination and now I get to share that feeling with others, “pay it forward” so to speak.

Here are the award rules:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you (Bhavna Hinduja, thank you!)
  3. State 7 things about yourself
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award and link to them
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the awards requirements.

7 Things about me:

1.  I wear my heart on my sleeve.  I’m horrible at hiding my emotions.  This can be a blessing and a curse.

2.  I love alone time.  This is my time to read, write and go exploring with my creativity.

3.  I never get tired of the Blues.  I loved “sap tunes” (as in sappy love songs) in junior high, Prince and hair bands in the 80s, but regardless of the year, I have and always will love listening to the Blues.

4.  My right leg is shorter than my left.  Not drastically, about 1/2 inch.  Just enough to make my spine curved and my purse constantly fall off my right shoulder.

5.  I have a tattoo.  Didn’t get it in my teens or 20s, got it in my 30s.  I wanted it to mean something. Don’t regret it yet.

6.  I love to write, but only discovered it a year and a half ago.  Yep.  Never thought of myself as a writer.  Started writing on a whim and completely fell in love.  Don’t do it often enough.

7.  My circle of friends is small and close.  I know a lot of people and have a lot of acquaintances, but my circle of friends is small and I keep them close.  If I call you my friend, I will defend and protect you like a momma bear defends her cubs.

And now for the 15 bloggers who inspire me. My nominees are:

  1. Bhavna Hinduja on Being Simple, Sustainable & Mindful
  2. Writing Like Crazy | A writer’s journey
  3. 100 Days of Real Food
  4. The Gracious Pantry
  5. The Pursuit of Hippieness
  6. Edible Landscaping with Rosalind Creasy
  7. Hilary and Ted
  8. Woo-hoo Tofu!
  9. The Soulsby Farm
  10. Growing Up in the Garden
  11. Gardening in the Lines | a diary of gardens.
  12. The Café Sucré Farine
  13. Food in Jars – A Canning Blog

  15. Mystery Writing is Murder

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
