The Versatile Blogger Award!



I greatly appreciate Mliae from lifeexperimentblog for nominating me for the versatile blogger award!

I have not been on the blogging scene for very long, but am grateful for the support, and to know that someone out there may actually be reading some of this.

I am new to the whole being recognised thing, and will do my best to avoid thanking a variety of low-level deities and high-level family members that may, or may not, have contributed to my current unenviable level of obscurity. I’d definitely like to thank the academy, I’m not sure which academy, but I’ll thank them anyway.

*Sniff sniff*. Tissue, please.

But seriously, I like the idea of passing a simple token of recognition on and using it as an icebreaker of sorts. Appreciation is greatly overlooked at times, as is civility. So, whoever made my list, you deserve it.

This is about as inspirational, aspirational or motivational as I get today, now please move along.

But before you do, here’s your mission if you choose in your infinite grace to accept it:

The rules are simple:

  1. Thank the person that nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. Nominate at least 15 bloggers of your choice. When considering a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, keep in mind the quality of their writing, the uniqueness of their subject matter and the level of love displayed on the virtual page.
  3. Link your nominees and let them know about their nomination.
  4. Share seven facts about yourself.

7 Facts about me:

  1. I am getting married on an island this year.
  2. My favourite author is Kurt Vonnegut
  3. I recently took my very first flying lesson.
  4. I am currently reading and enjoying ‘Ready Player One’ by Ernest Cline
  5. I am utterly terrified of the potential consequences that would befall humanity if marzipan and celery decided to have offspring.
  6. I don’t always write from the heart, sometimes I write from my feet.
  7. I have shaken the hand of Sean Connery, but didn’t stir it.

My versatile nominees!:

  1. Saudade Vampire
  2. The Caffeinated Writer
  3. Some Kind of Blog
  4. World of Horror
  5. scribblesofstageandscreen
  6. LordOfTheReeves
  7. yourdaughtersbookshelf
  8. The Drabble
  9. Unbolt
  10. globalbookmania
  11. The Brown Road Chronicles
  12. Lovecraftian Science
  13. Flash! Friday
  14. Brilliant Flash Fiction
  15. amusing2write’s Blog

I wish all of my nominees a happy Friday, and a productive weekend ahead.

Thanks for taking the time to take the time.

  1. Hi Alex, I’m not really sure how this award thing works – how do I get myself nominated for an award?
    I suppose the obvious answer is to be good at blogging and hope to be noticed – but that sounds a bit random.
    Can I just take the initiative and nominate other people for the award? But then how will I get nominated back – they will all assume I already won the award.
    Hope you’re having a great day anyway. 🙂
