Blogging Award Nominations and Nominees

I am catching up on a few award nominations. I have not meant for them to sit around. There are now 52 subscribers. I would like to thank everyone for reading and for their encouragement as I am still a new blogger.

First, I want to thank justbenwords for the Kreativ Blogger award nomination. Check out his blog. He writes some awesome poetry. I want to thank Elliot for the Versatile Blogger award nomination. Please visit his awesome blog. Freyamorel writes with a unique and talented insight, and has nominated me for the Sunshine Award.

Rules and Regulations

I don’t mean to sound like a town hall planning guide, but as I’ve written a lot about that sort of thing lately, I had to write something besides rules. I will try to contact all nominations within the week. Here are the rules for the Kreativ Blogger award.

  1. List seven facts about yourself
  2. Pass this award on to seven other bloggers who you think deserve it.
  3. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

I am sorry ahead of time if I do not nominate the number according to each award. There are a lot of great blogs.

Seven Facts about Me:

  1. I have written “books” or in a creative style since the age of six.
  2. I “wrote” a book called Mimi’s Cats, which was nothing but a Kindergartener’s sketch of sticks with whiskers. My grandmother still claims she has my first book.
  3. It takes me at least three months or more to read a longer novel due to projects, an almost two-year-old, and other work.
  4. In the past week, I sang The Wheels on the Bus before I interviewed a state legislator for one of my projects.
  5. I sometimes work as a substitute teacher.
  6. My favorite place is the Blue Ridge and Appalachian Mountains with my husband.
  7. I have hiked to waterfalls.

  2. Share seven things about yourself.
  3. Pass this award along to fifteen or twenty.
  4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Seven (more) Things About me:

  1. I’m currently reading the 1998 biography of Charles Lindbergh and Dr. Zhivago.
  2. I am completely helpless when it comes to math.
  3. One of my favorite books is gods in Alabama.
  4. I cook a lot, and one of my specialties is chicken parmesan.
  5. I believe Fitzgerald’s writing eats Hemingway’s for breakfast. If it was a physical fist fight, it would be the opposite way around.
  6. My husband is 32-years-older than me.
  7. My little boy’s favorite word is “book,” of which I’m proud.

  4. Non-alcoholic drink? Diet Coke
