I have been nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award by Dutifully Broken… his words are beautiful and inspiring. He is honest and raw in his prose. To be nominated by him is an honor.
Here are the “rules” of the Beautiful Blogger Award…
1. Copy and place the Beautiful Blogger Award in your post. (You can find different versions of the icon by performing a Google search)
2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.
3. Tell 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 7 fellow bloggers for the Beautiful Blogger Award, tell them by posting a comment on their blogs.
Oh… 7 things about me that I have not already shared… such a challenge as I already overshare…
1 – My favorite color is purple; hence the color of the award I chose.
2 – My favorite number is 8; so when I am feeling incredibly OCD, I obsess over words with 8 letters, spelling them forwards and backwards, specifically words ending in “ing”.
3 – I hate waffles, but I like pancakes… I think the batter is the same, but I don’t like the way there are little squares in the waffles.
4- I am super high maintenance but like to look like I am low maintenance. It is what it is.
5- I am suspicious of things that are too cheap or too expensive. I like to buy things that are middle of the road.
6- I have a favorite bottled water – Dasani. I think it tastes the best; some, like Arrowhead, taste dirty to me. Dasani tastes silky and smooth. I consider myself a water connoisseur.
7 – I can usually find the good in anybody… but am challenged when looking for it in myself.
I am pained to have to limit my choices to only 7 awards. Seriously. I love all of the blogs I visit and believe them all to be worthy of the Beautiful Blogger Award; every one of them deserves an award and to be visited daily. It takes so much to expose yourself and to write about your life… regardless of typos, rambling, ranting, or anything else somebody may not want to read… somebody else wants to.
If anybody cared about an award by me, I would create one – the Three Dimensional Award, and I would give it out to all of the bloggers I have virtually met… but, alas, I cannot. Before I break out into a resounding rendition of “I’d like to buy the world a Coke” here are my nominations (in no particular order):
Night Owl http://submissivenightowl.wordpress.com
Prego and the Loon http://pregoandtheloon.wordpress.com
Dean J Baker http://deanjbaker.wordpress.com/
Author 4 U http://author4u.wordpress.com/
I sincerely appreciate being nominated, and I hope everyone will visit my nominations (and all the other blogs on WordPress) as well.
