Posts Tagged ‘Versatile Blogger award’


They say actors and performers find their inspiration from cheering audiences.  Recognition from fellow bloggers is the same.  We may enjoy  blogging, but awards are the love and inspiration we need to stretch and grow.

So, Congratulations to Judysp and her wonderful blog, A Daily Thought.  She can take bows now because, for the second time, she has received two awards at once – the Beautiful Blogger and the Versatile Blogger Awards.  It’s like having twins TWICE!

If you have not visited A Daily Thought, don’t miss it!  Versatile and Beautiful are the perfect words because no matter what your interest, there is something there – from jokes to videos, to book reviews, and humor.   Her sense of humor is enormous!

Meanwhile, thanks Judy for passing these two awards on to me as well.

Here are the rules:

  1. Copy the logos and place them in your post.
  2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
  3. Tell seven things about yourself.
  4. Nominate seven other bloggers and comment on their blogs to let them know.

I have lately been expanding my wonderful little blogger-friend-community and have found some fascinating friends to add to those I already know and love.  I have included a few of them here.  These are my nominations for the Beautiful Blogger and the Versatile Blogger awards.  If you haven’t checked them out yet,I think each one is definitely applause worthy:

As for seven things about myself:

1)       I hate cereal in any of its many forms.

2)      Dusk is my favorite time of day.

3)      Autumn is my favorite time of year.

4)      I never saw snow until I was 21 years old.

5)      Bread is my downfall on a diet.

6)      I cannot carry a tune, so ask me to sing at your own risk.

7)      I keep trying to downsize but keep adding things anyway.
Luv, Dor

Congratulations to CathyG of Comments from Cathy on receiving the One Lovely Blog award AND the Versatile Blogger award – a “double hitter!”  Now that is real proof!  Cathy’s blog is definitely impressive and she is a fine friend to find in the blog-us-fear!

Awards are the gold stars for us bloggers.  They matter because they are further confirmation that our friends are looking.  And we must have something that touches our invisible family of followers – a special way of capturing life in photographs, of expressing thoughts and emotions in words.  So Thank You Cathy for including me in your list to receive both of these wonderful awards.  They matter.

Sometimes we receive the same awards more than once.  This is the double hitter that is twice as gratifying because it’s like saving the last delicious bite for later.  It’s the second time around for me and ever more special.

So, if you are on my list below of admired bloggers and you have already received the two awards, rejoice!  You are well loved.  You can follow the rules again or just wallow in all the admiration.  And if you are on the list and have not received one or both of these awards, rejoice!  You can still wallow because you are a Double Hitter!

Your rules are:

Thank the blogger who nominated you,

Provide a link to his/her site,

Share seven things about yourself (no, not 14!),

Nominate seven (no, not 14!) other bloggers for the award(s) and notify them of the nomination(s),

And – you can post an award badge or both badges to your own site (optional).

So. “open the envelope please.”

Here are my nominations for both the ONE LOVELY BLOG award and/or THE VERSATILE BLOGGER award:

Believe Anyway

Finally, although I have offered up seven things about myself before, I can’t resist doing it once more.

1)      I dream in color!

2)      I have always wanted a fireplace, but settled for a wood stove instead (more practical).

3)      There is no place like home.

4)      I once traveled in my work at a time when getting there was half the fun.

5)      Now writing takes me to other worlds.

6)      I love my friends in cyberspace and want to sign my comments, “Luv, Dor,” like in a real letter, but isn’t that too personal for someone I have never met in person?

7)      I don’t “text,” but I’m thinking about it.  By the time I am cutting edge, we may be sending messages by brain waves.

Luv, Dor
