I’m honored to receive the Versatile Blogger Award, nominated by Miss Common Cents. Thank you!! You can learn more about the award here.

“When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them. Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.”

The Versatile Blogger Award Rules

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to the Versatile Blogger Award site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

These are the blogs I’m nominating (I know, it’s only 10. I went for quality rather than quantity):

  1. Our Tiny Earth — http://ourtinyearth.com/
  2. Local Kitchen — http://localkitchenblog.com
  3. A Sonoma Garden — http://asonomagarden.wordpress.com/
  4. Appalachian Feet — http://www.appalachianfeet.com/
  5. New England Permaculture Homestead — http://nepermhome.wordpress.com/
  6. Living Simply Free — http://living-simply-free.com

  8. The Snail of Happiness — http://thesnailofhappiness.com
  9. The Seattle Homestead — http://www.seattlehomestead.com/blog/
  10. Ekostories — http://ekostories.com/

Finally, 7 things about myself:

  1. If I could only eat one kind of fruit/berry for the rest of my life, it would be blueberries.
  2. I never read blogs until about 4 years ago. I didn’t get what the whole point was, not at all.
  3. I’ve studied 12 languages. I don’t speak all of them, but I can read most of them.
  4. I adore goats so much that I think I must have been a goatherd (or a goat!!) in a previous life.
  5. I dislike driving. In fact, I had a real phobia (for lack of practice) all through my twenties. Three cross-country (US) trips later, I’m over it, but I still don’t like driving.
  6. As a child, I got into things like learning the alphabet backwards and reading through the encyclopedia, starting from the letter A. (The first was just to show off, of course.)
  7. I’m a hopeless idealist and a recovering perfectionist.
