The Versatile Blogger Award!

The Versatile Blogger Award!

I received The Versatile Blogger Award (VBA) from the very awesome reader/blogger, Marilou George.

Here is the link to Marilou's blog, Confessions of a Reader:

According to my esteemed sponsor, Marilou George, here is what VBA is all about: Versatile Blogger Award (VBA)What is it?

Marilou says: "As far as I can tell — details are rather sketchy and only the creator knows for sure — this lofty-sounding award is basically a mutual admiration society where bloggers recognize their peers for writing quality blogs that touched them in some way. The VBAs honor the blogger rather than specific posts. It’s a chance for bloggers to pat themselves on the back like the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does with the Oscars. Until someone starts giving out Blogscars, the VBAs will have to suffice."

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded The Versatile Blogger Award. I nominated 6 outstanding bloggers below. Congratulations!

Thank you, Marilou! This award is so cool. I'm thrilled to receive this award from a fellow blogger, particularly one I think is awesome. 

Please include a link to their blog. That way all of us "cool" bloggers get linked together. At least that's the general idea.

Link to Marilou's blog, Confessions of a Reader:

Next, select (up to) 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (Pick out the awesome blogs that you love!)

The envelope, please…

Nominate those (up to) 15 bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award — (send out a Tweet and let them know they've been nominated for this awesome/cool award. Don't forget to include a link to your blog post about the award.)

And the nominees/winners are (in no particular order):

1) Benjamin X. Wretlind, Drippings from the Mind of Me

2) Michael K. Rose, Myriad Spheres

3) Arabella Stokes, Hot Time in the Haute Ton

4) J. L. Campbell, Award Winning Jamaican Author

5) Daniel Chamberlain, danielchamberlaindotcom

6) David Cranmer, The Education of a Pulp Writer

Congratulations, winners!

NOTE: Winners, I know you all are super busy and there's always a shortage of time. So if you don't have time to do a post and nominate some other winners, I'll certainly understand. I just want you all to know that I really enjoy your blogs and think you deserve The Versatile Blogger Award.

Now for the last part of receiving the award, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself. So here goes:

1) I have three adorable young grandkids.

2) I'm addicted to books - can't get enough of them.

3) I'm a leftie.

4) I'm an artist and paint in oils and acrylics (when I have the time).

5) I love dogs and would have a dozen if my husband didn't set a limit. 

6) I love football and watch the games during football season.

7) I live in Florida too. 

This is really cool. So thanks again to Marilou George for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award.


  1. Thanks very much, Teri. Nice to learn a little about you. Haven't met many lefties. My mom was one and so was I, until she slapped it out of me. ;)

    1. Well, from one leftie to an ex-leftie, I think your blog is really cool.


I love hearing from my readers.
