Words cannot describe what I’m feeling right now. I’ve noticed this “Versatile Blogger” award going around amongst other writers and I was thinking, “…that’s really nice.” I did not think that I would receive such an honor. Why? 1. I’m such a newbie at this. Although my page is bland, my writings are full of color. 2. Who even KNOWS me that I would receive one? I am really awe-struck right now to get he nod from my sister from another land Maria at http://poemsthatdance.com/2012/04/22/nominated-for-the-versatile-blogger-award-what-to-do-next/.
This whole blogging thing started with me a while ago when I began my quest to write a children’s book. I logged on to http://www.fastpencil.com/ and met a woman by the name of Susan who shared her blog with me and her art. She is THE first person I followed on a blog, and continue to this very day. My own blog had been under construction for a couple of years now. It was recently that I decided during my injury and setback of rotator cuff surgery that I would post…giving you (and myself) more.
As I followed the other bloggers I saw that you should write 7 things about yourself. I think I can do that. Here you go (randomly):
1. My son told me the other day that I have a loud laugh.
2. My girlfriend says that I’m playful (sometimes).
3. She also says that I’m a good singer.
4. I consider myself to be like a chameleon, changing hairstyles from curly to bald (depending on the season).
5. I love birds….love them.
6. I eat my french fries two at a time so they’re not lonely.
7. I have an uncanny ability to match my shoes with whatever I wear (Polo shoes).
Now, I would like to take the time to make my own nominations.
http://susartandfood.wordpress.com/ (THIS is the Susan I mentioned prior), without you I would not know what a WordPress is. Thank you.
http://loveofwords52.wordpress.com/ because there is a LOT of versatility in this blog site…from novels to poetry which I love.
http://maryannepale.com/ because I think I’m going to learn a lot from her + she has a LOT of awards. She’s my idol right now.
http://fivereflections.wordpress.com/ because he’s now following me, and I love the feel of his page. I love Haiku’s. He’s got ’em.
http://sites.google.com/site/welshabba/ My man David Aston. I met him through Fastpencil.
http://njpoems.wordpress.com/ This is my baby brother (poetically) from India. Maria is correct…he is growing very quickly as far as his writing is concerned. I would know.
Are more than one nomination allowed? I saw someone with THREE nods in a day! Last but now least is the queen of http://prefacme.com/ & an aforementioned nominee http://poemsthatdance.com/2012/04/22/nominated-for-the-versatile-blogger-award-what-to-do-next/ If you only knew how much her and I are learning from each other. Isn’t that what this is all about? If it weren’t for you I would not have the followers I have. I thank you for your ideas, feedback and generosity to have me aboard. I hope NaPoWriMo is giving Prefacme a lot of exposure this month.
Well, I have my 22nd poem to write for the month, and ummmmmm 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 people to contact regarding their nominations. Please stay KonciouSLea tuned in. Much love to you.
