Versatile Blogger Post Topiary Man from Accord, NY

Versatility At It Again!

Wow! I’m so honored and amazed for being nominated again for The Versatile Blogger Award. I went back and forth on whether or not I should create a new post for a second nomination or just update my first nomination. I didn’t want to appear greedy by having two Versatile Blogger Award Posts, but on the other hand I really wanted to show my second nominator the love she deserves. So, as you can see, I went with a second post to not only honor the beautiful Grace of Prayers and Passports, but to also spread the love even more by adding new nominees to this post.

In Grace’s words, “I’m breaking all the rules about ‘women of a certain age.” I love this mission statement. She is lighting the world “on fire,” seizing her moments and posting positive ideas.

What is the Versatile Blogger Nomination?

Within the blogging community there are several ways to support one another and recognize each other’s talents. You begin by following, then reading, hopefully commenting, retweeting, tagging them in communal posts, and, if you’re really getting involved, nominating them for cool awards like The Versatile Blogger.versatile-blogger The only way to nominate is to already have been a nominee. It’s a great way to spread the love and show someone in the blogging community that they are important and worth sharing. No prize money or publicity photos doled out, just straight up appreciation for all of your hard work. It is an honor and should be treated as thus, but you should also have fun with it!

My 15 Nominations

After careful deliberation, I nominate the following bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award. (Apologies if you’ve been nominated before, but maybe you’re just that awesome!) For this nomination I cast a wide net of versatility (pun possibly intended). I’ve included a link to their blog and their Twitter account name to make it easy for you to find and enjoy!

The Rules

E0AFC1E4-4AF7-4CF4-8826-BEEBA8AE573EThis was taken straight from the Versatile Blogger Award Wordpress post.

“If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award…

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.”

7 Things About Myself

If you’re reading this, then I’m fascinated with your interest about my life on this earth! I went into greater depths on my last post, so I’ll be quick here to break up the rhythm.

  1. Atlantic Ocean, coral beach, plam tree in the Florida KeysI was born a blonde, but now it hides until the sun brings it back out.
  2. I love earthy colors, especially the blues and greens of the sky, ocean and forest.
  3. The bear is my spirit animal in the winter. I would love to eat and sleep all cuddly in a heap.
  4. The osprey is my spirit animal in the summer. I would love to soar freely, unadorned in the open skies.
  5. I really enjoy the blogging community. It’s one of the most positive and engaging groups/platforms I have belonged to.
  6. I can ice skate forwards and backwards, on one foot, turn and stop.
  7. My perseverance knows no bounds.

Now take the ball and run with it!

    Thank you so much for the nomination! I’ve done it before but nevertheless I am still very grateful! That’s so cool that you can ice skate, I always wanted to be able to when I was younger.

    Thank you for the nomination! I love bears too – I’m all for eating loads and hibernating in the winter! That’s also impressive about the ice skating… I find it easier than roller skating, but not that easy haha

    By far the best nod to me… You got me all choked up. 😘 But, this is precisely why, like you, I love the blogging community. There’s constantly a stream of support and love coming in from complete strangers. It’s amazing! Bravo for your second nomination, you deserve it!
