The Versatile Blogger

with 20 comments

Hi.  This will be a different kind of post. 

I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. 

I would like to thank the bloggers who nominated me:  At ‘Its Real To Me’,   C.L. features her poetry.  She has a keen wit and her poems make me laugh and smile and nod my head.  Her poem ‘Tree’ is worth a careful read … it speaks the truth at its core, as do all her poems. Awesome poet!   At ‘Redwater Ramblings’, Eve Redwater features her poetry.  Her poems are finely crafted, and get inside her subjects… her poem ‘Bird’ is one of the best I’ve ever read.  She uses metaphor skillfully and has interesting ways with words and ideas to show us how her subjects move and feel and think.  Awesome poet!

The Versatile Blogger Award nomination is a way to show others how much you appreciate their blogs and to make other bloggers aware of some really extrordinary work.  

Rules for The Versatile Blogger Award.

1. In a post on your blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award logo.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you with a link to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

I would like to nominate the following 15 bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award (in alphabetical order):

Here is a list of 7 random things to know about me:

  1. I am afraid of spiders, but I try to see things from their point of view.
  2. I have a collection of old litho prints of hunters at their campfires.
  3. My favorite film is ‘Fried Green Tomatos’.
  4. My favorite TV show ever was ‘LOST’ and I miss it so much.
  5. When I was a kid, I planted a pine cone under the outside water faucet and sat for an hour to see if it would grow.
  6. My very first poem at age six was about a brook near our cabin at Elkwater Lake, Alberta:  “Down by our cabin/runs a little stream/and I love it better/than ice cream”
  7. I had both my Dad and my Mom as teachers in school, and they were both excellent.

Again, thank you to C.L. and Eve Redwater, as well as all those who read my Blog and who work so hard to make their Blogs enjoyable for others.
