Thanks to Batya, of Meander for giving me the "Versatile Blogger Award". I really liked her description of my blog. A real complement. Thank YOU!
It just so happens that I, like the nice lady who sent the award to Batya, am a bit of a cynic when it comes to blog awards. If readers were giving them, that's one thing, but as it stands now, usually blog awards are simply fellow-bloggers patting each other on the back......
But then my self-fawning would-like-to-believe-I-am-good side counters with the undisputable fact that many of my readers ARE fellow bloggers (which sometimes I think is also prompted by trying to drum up readers....). But since I DON'T often reciprocate (I don't have TIME to read blogs very much, thank -you) they may actually be interested in what I write. And , as much as I am mostly a two-subject blogger (Ricki/diet and self improvement), I'd like to think that the fact it is NOT all about Ricki (as it was originally)makes me versatile.....
And if not versatile, at least I try to be honest.
The rules of the award are:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award. Definitely!
2. Share one thing about yourself readers might not know otherwise.
3. List (with links) SIX bloggers you think are fantastic, and why.
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award
So here goes:
Something you might not know about me:
As a child I loved ballet, took ballet classes (something like an elephant in a china shop) (told you I am honest!), and still have a very soft spot in my heart for Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.
VERSATILE Blogs I love (which I have probably nominated before, but good is good, and as I said, I don’t have that much time to read blogs….):
1. Belinda’s Picture Blog , A Journal In Photos
A feast for the eyes…..
2. Melody’s Slurping Life
Words and Pictures, honestly, with soul
Often political, but much more. Definitely versatile…..
And I am leaving this list at three.(Because if it is more than three, it is not such a recomendation.....)
