The Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award 2012

What a great way to start 2012!

This award is given to bloggers, by bloggers (another reason I love the blogging community).

Now for the details, here’s how it works:

  • If you are nominated, thank the award giver and link back to them in your blog post
  • Share seven things about yourself
  • Pass this award along to recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading (some say to 15 some say to less than that.. I did 15).
  • Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award and post the award picture

I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Kate (such a cool name!) at

and earlier by J.M. McDowell during the Christmas rush

Thank you to Kate and J. M. for the award! I really appreciate it!

Seven things about me:

1. This is my first official public blog! I never had anything else to blog about so I never bothered before. I posted one for my own amusement but never tagged anything or connected with anyone really. I was really missing out!

2. If you asked me before 2007 if I would become a writer I would have said “no.”

3. I enjoy using my writers’ vocabulary in everyday conversation and it sometimes gets me strange looks, but usually people just think I’m smart (or a smarty-pants).

4. I am aware that I use way too many exclamation marks!!!!! It is a secondary affliction to my addiction to writing fiction!!!

5. I’ve been married for almost 16 years and I got married when I was 20. Yet somehow, I’m still 29….

6. My name was supposed to be just “Katie” but Mom was under anesthetic and Dad wrote “Katherine.”

7. I have been to Hawaii and St. Barths, both for work, and I prefer Hawaii.

Here are the 15 bloggers who deserve this award–they are sort-of in order of discovery.  You should follow them all and read and/or comment on their most excellent posts!

  1. Thank you so much! I will do my part when I return home next week. 🙂

  2. Congratulations, Kate! You deserve these nominations.

  3. 🙂 Thank you!!! AAAAAAAAAH!!! I still need to do the last one. Thank you very much again. 😀

  4. Thanks!

    For your readers, my tagline: “Clear writing advice, comprehensive book reviews, and author interviews”. And I’ve just extended my site to include my new editing services! 🙂 Check out the cheap specials.

  5. Kate, thank you so much. You rock! I’m working on putting up my new post re: the award
    Q 4 U: do the bloggers have to be new ones you discovered or some of them could be of people you already follow?
    Thanks again!

    • You’re very welcome! I followed the example of the blogger who awarded to me and went through my comments list. Some were bloggers I’d recently met and some weren’t.

      • Got it. I have my post up as well. I didn’t know such award exists, but I guess it’s never too late to learn 🙂
        Thanks again! You made my day.

  6. Just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely award. I am without internet at the moment, as I’ve moved, so I will tell you here, 7 things about myself here, whilst I am connected long enough:

    1 – I have larger than normal pupils that allow me to see better in the dark (optician confirmed)
    2- I once had a chat with Sir David Attenborough after a lecture of his.
    3 – Was a rock musician for years (80’s – and played bass)
    4 – Have studied music, drama and science.
    5 – Allergic to cats (sadly…I love them)
    6 – Once cycled from London to Paris for charity
    7 – I’ve lived in 3 different continents.
