A stupendously, delightful surprise is opening your email to read:
“I love your blog & also follow you on Twitter. I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award.”
Seems something more appropriate than thank you is in order. However, thank you is what I have, and it is given freely and whole-heartedly to Michelle Abbott. (Along with a healthy dose of Clapping & Cheering, Foot Stomping and Woo-Hooing!)
I. Display the Award Certificate on your blog. (See doodle above.)
II. Announce your win with a post and thank the blogger who nominated you. (In case you missed it above Michelle, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! )
III. Post seven interesting things about yourself. Hmmm. “Interesting” is debatable. (I’d say these are tidbits.)
~~1. As a child I loved eating liverwurst and honey sandwiches.
~~2. My favorite namesake story: Lake Tana in Ethiopia feeds into the Nile. It was thought to be the Fountain of Youth.
~~3. I once won tickets to a weekend Jazz Festival by calling into a radio station.
~~4. When I was 12, a man offered to buy me for two goats and one camel (or was it two camels and one goat?)
~~5. My daughter claims I am a closet New Ager.
~~6. As a child I wanted to be a member of the Addams Family (as portrayed on television).
~~7. From the moment I watched Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir at age 14, until I gave birth, I had thought my first daughter’s name would be Lucia (the Ghost having decided Mrs. Muir’s name should be Lucia rather than Lucille). I erred.
IV. Present 15 deserving bloggers with the award. (Listed in alphabetical order)
V. Link your nominees in the post and let them know of their nomination with a comment. Woo-hoo!
A few final words
For the Nominees: May the nomination be a Happy for you.
For the readers: May perusing the nominated sites be a Happy for you.
