A word about an award


I want to thank The writer, the reviser, the visualizer at Write Or Revise Daily (WORD!) for choosing me for a Versatile Blogger award (http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/)! Write or Revise Daily is one of my favorite blogs and it’s a treat as well as an honor to be recognized by a fellow blogger!

The Versatile Blogger

For those of you who, like me, aren’t familiar with how this works, there are rules. Rule #1, don’t talk about Versatile Blogger award. Wait, that is definitely not right!

The real rules are as follows.

Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.

Done and Done. But thanks again! I appreciate the recognition and encouragement.

Share 7 things about yourself.

1. I don’t handle praise or recognition well. It’s not that I don’t welcome or appreciate it. I do! But although I often come across as an extrovert, I am actually shy about being in a spotlight not of my own making.

2. Although I have been a writer all of my life, I was first published as a photojournalist when I was a teenager. I put away my camera professionally in favor of a keyboard long ago, but this blog is allowing me the chance to revisit my photographic roots a bit.

3. Speaking of journalism, I once owned and published a weekly newspaper.

4. I was born and lived most of my life in the incredibly, landlocked, ocean-free Midwest.

5. In 2011 I decided it was a good time to have a mid-life crisis and rather than buy a sports car I relocated from snowy winters to a southern city with a beach.

6. I live in an all-creative household. My husband is a poet, photographer and writer. My son is an artist, lapsed poet, and master of puns. My daughter is a dancer and writer.

7. My favorite food is sushi.

Pass this award along to 15 others.

I am nominating blogs I always look forward to reading. Each of them has something that draws me back post after post no matter how busy I think I am. Hope you enjoy them as well! They are, of course, in no particular order.
