Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Posted on Updated on

It’s a lovely honour to have received two Very Inspiring Blogger awards from two really special, inspirational, and incredibly talented ladies. Many, many thanks to dear Vashti and Taz. Go check out their sites – you’ll love them both.

Transcending Borders
Vashti Quiroz-Vega

The rules for accepting (although you don’t have to accept) these awards are:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. State 7 things about yourself.
3. Nominate 15 bloggers for this award, and link back to them.

So… Seven Things About Me:

1. I love positive people. I think if you think negative thoughts all the time, you attract negative things.
2. I believe in Karma. What goes around comes around – eventually.
3. I love antiques, and have so many collections most of them have to be stashed away.
4. I have celiac disease, so I don’t eat gluten. I also don’t eat meat, and have discovered that without these things, I can eat my body weight in cheese and sweets every month without putting on a gram. So I do.
5. My chosen career was in sales and marketing.
6. I make my own tomato ketchup from scratch every year.
7. I can’t tell jokes.

And now my nominees. These are fifteen of my favourite blogs. I don’t only follow writer guys, as you will see below. I love to read about people’s real lives, really enjoy a good laugh, and like to keep up to date on the latest cool footwear too. Here are my fifteen great blog offerings for you to enjoy:

Ben’s Bitter Blog

Disappearing In Plain Sight

      You deserve HUNDREDS of awards Chris! Apart from loving the bookish vibe and your freebie fridays, it’s fantastic how your warm and giving nature is growing your site so quickly – don’t forget me when you hit the top of the bloggersphere! 😀

              Cool Chris! After all this slagging off of pretenders, I need new friends. Need to get back into my Unseen Academicals again too. I think pucker writing and laughter is the order of the day. 😀

    Thank you so, so much for this award Jo but I am afraid I have
    already been nominated for it and attached it to my website, but I still am very grateful for you choosing me and a little bit honoured to have it again so I will follow the rules and pass it on. I hope this is OK.

      It’s a pleasure Russell – I had to share your site though – I love it! Anything you do will be most cool. Have you got the butterfly version of the award up too? I haven’t seen it before – a different button for the same award. 😀

    Thank you, my dear,dear Jo. I’m glad you mentioned that you can’t tell jokes, otherwise I might have taken this nomination as one ;P Am going to display this logo very soon but before that I’ll have to find 15 blogs to read 🙂 You and Jennie are certainly on my list!

      A pleasure my dear poetess! I’m looking forward to more of these from you, when you’re not scribbling your next book. I don’t think you can put me on your list for these two though – ha haaaa – imagine getting the same awards over and over. 😀 Then I’ll award them to you again, and we can carry on for ever. See? Maybe I can tell a joke…. 😀 xx

      Pleasure gorgeous! The amazing profundity (been wanting to use that word for a bit) and absolute coolness of your stories means I had to give you the double too. Did I spell profundity right? 😀 xx

      You have loads of awards already, but I know you’ll get loads more. I really love your posts, and totally connect with your opinions and humour too. I’m also a blog collector – it’s cool to find more. You guys nominated above are all brilliant!

    I think it is funny that you are such a positive person and you nominate a bitter blog for an inspiring award. I think this is why the word irony was invented.

      Your bitter blog puts a smile on my dial every day. 😀 Especially the one that got posted too soon, and prompted a further bitter blog – love it! I’m a bit keen to see how you bitterly accept your award – really hope you do! Bring on the irony. 😀
