Versatile Blogger Award

Posted on October 17th, 2011 by Jean

I’ve been awarded The Versatile Blogger award by Tammy at The Tesserae. Thank you, Tammy!
 
The rules of accepting the award are that the recipient reveal 7 unknown facts about themselves prior to passing the award along to 5 deserving bloggers.
 
7 Unknown Facts
1. Before saying March or May, I have to really think about it to figure out which month is correct for my discussion.
 
2. I also tend to forget what I own. As a child, I coveted my sister’s green pogo stick. Turns out it was mine. I’ve done the same as an adult with a toothbrush.
 
3. I’m a workaholic. Even though I complain about my workload, I get a great deal of satisfaction by how much I accomplish.
 
4. I wish I had a garden, but have no idea where to start.
 
5. I have a hard time making friends the way some people have a hard time finding a partner. I knit-pick (in my mind) until I’ve talked myself out of pursuing a relationship.
 
6. The other side of the coin is that I love searching for and finding friends from my past! Facebook is great for that, but so is the internet as a whole. I’ve had two girlfriends say, “How did you find me?”
 
7. I don’t wear heels anymore. I’ll take comfort over style.
 
5 Worthy, Versatile Bloggers
Tammy picked The Girl From The Ghetto, but I will too. When I think of versatility, I think of The Girl. She has give-aways, book reviews, product reviews, and juicy posts that are bold and personal.
 
Beth of Word Nerd Speaks also epitomizes versatility. Along with hosting her own blog, she heads GBE2 (Group Blogging Experience 2) and partners with writers to host One Stop Blog World. Beth is one busy woman whose writing seems effortless.
 
Teacher Girl Blogs is a wonderful site by anonymous blogger, Teacher Girl. Her “What I Wore Wednesday” feature inspires me to open my wallet and purchase the cutest ensembles.
 
Sherri at The Kitchen Prescription is versatile and gifted in the kitchen! Her savory dishes and perfectly decorated baked goodies leave me drooling.
 
Mary of The Mama Mary Show is incredible. Everything she does, she does well. Her site is so professional from her header to her top of the line videos, interviews, tv spots, and blog posts.
 
I hope you will take the time to visit my friends if you are not already familiar with their sites. Thank you!

  1. Yes, you are quite a versatile blogger. Great list. I forget what I own as well, or someone in my family does something that I call adopting and think that something I bought is theirs. It’s annoying! I think I should be a more discerning friend. I tend to embrace everyone and not “get” that they are not really that into me. If I was more discerning I would see it.

    You are a good woman to embrace everyone, Traci. I’ll bet that translates well in your job, and that is why you have earned the position that you have.

    Thank you, Tammy. The facts weren’t earth shattering, but it was difficult to come up with them as you know 1st hand.

  3. You are definitely a versatile blogger! And thanks, Jean, for passing the ward on to me! I’m honored by your kind words–now to think of seven things about me that everyone doesn’t already know… ;O)

    Step 1 – done. Now what? LOL!
    Actually we just took down the pool, so there is a big patch of dirt in the yard. Hubby put fresh soil and grass seeds today. Think he’d notice if a few carrots started sprouting? 🙂

  6. First, a very special thanks to you (and Tammy!) for thinking of me for this award. I like writing about everything, and I’m glad you enjoy my “juicy posts that are bold and personal.”

    Second, I love that you are into finding old friends from the past on Facebook. I admire that trait–my BFF does that too, and she always manages to finds our old friends. Don’t know what I’d do with her detective work, lol.

    Third, creating a garden is easy enough. I am no master gardner, but I know how to ask for help at the store. If you want flowers, plant flowers that will bloom each year, and that will only bloom once then die. Make sure to have flowers that bloom in spring, summer and fall, so you’ll always have color. And, fertilizer is fertilizer, so the cheap stuff works! I got my mutant mums from the $6 cheapie off-brand fertilizer. Hosta’s are great to plant, because every year or two you can split them up and replant them. Don’t be afraid of seeds, either. I have 7 foot flowers from seeds I chucked in the dirt.

    As for a veggie garden, tomatoes will grow anywhere. I like to plant things I’ll use all summer, like cilantro.

  9. I wish I had more of a green thumb (or a tiny slab of a garden in my city oasis) but it’ll have to wait a few years, I’m thinking. But I dream of a giant veggie patch 🙂

    Great list!

  11. I have never enjoyed heels, but I am quite clear on the difference between March and May because I was born in May.
