Versatile Blogger Award

Have you ever been chosen to receive an award that you didn’t know existed?  I started blogging in February of this year, and I had never heard of blogging awards until I checked my email early Saturday morning.  An email from WordPress notified me that I had a comment waiting for me on one of my posts about a Versatile Blogger Award.  Clueless, I googled blogging awards, specifically the Versatile Blogger Award which led me to this conclusion…

Blogging Awards are a way to recognize bloggers for their creativity, effort, content, and skill.  They are a way to let readers know about other notable blogs and a way for bloggers to connect and possibly collaborate with other bloggers.

And now, with this award clearly defined, I am excited to announce that I have been chosen to receive the Versatile Blogger Award.  Receiving this award is an honor, and I want to thank The Half Arsed Runner for nominating me!  I encourage everyone to check out his blog.  His posts always make me smile, and they are easy to relate to, well written, informative, and fun to read.  Here is a link to one of my favorite posts by The Half Arsed Runner… Finishing Race to the Stones – the 100k Ultra Marathon.

With this award there are some rules, so here we go…

The Rules

  1.  Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Share 7 facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate 10 other Bloggers of your choice.
  4. Link your nominees, and let them know of your nomination.

 7 Facts about Me

  1.  I am a writer.  A writer that likes numbers, equations, and codes.  I don’t read much.  That said, if I read what you write, I truly enjoy your work.
  2. I recently turned 31.
  3. I started long distance running when I was 25, but I competed at a national level in track and field when I was younger.
  4. I hate shopping.  If I go to the mall intending to make a purchase, I spend most of the trip successfully talking myself out of spending money.
  5. Twelve years ago, I had dreadlocks, two eyebrow rings, a nose ring, and seven ear piercings.
  6. I live in Dallas, TX with my husband and two kids.
  7. I can’t stand Country music.

      1. Too funny! I was completely thrown off at first.
        Congrats on your first two Blogger Awards! : )
        That was a very sweet memory. It is hard connecting during the chaos or immediately after.
