I have been honoured with the versatile blogger award

Blogging is like writing a book or an article, you potter away at it in your own private space, struggling to find the words that tell the story, sorting out a photo or two that you think will be appropriate. Then the marvellous WordPress program checks your spelling. It is a cyber-bite of your life and thoughts.

Then you press the publish button and off it flies around the world…

I cannot comprehend how it all works, but I am addicted to it, and it leaves me totally amazed by the diverse people you meet in the blogosphere. Over 2 million world-wide, what a great slice of humanity all joining together in writing and reading all this information and interesting life stories.

Well today when I checked my WordPress site I found I had been sent the above ” Versatile Blogger Award” What a thrill and an honour. I feel like I am at the “Logies” (Australian awards) or the “Oscars”. Well maybe that is an exageration, but it gives me a warm glow to be acknowledged and I thank Ric for nominating me. He describes himself as an ordinary guy, he is from the Phillipines and if you click on the following link you will find out more about his interests  http://blackhelios.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/surprise-surprise/

Now part of being given the award is that you have to disclose 7 things about yourself. Oh dear a bit scary….

Then you have to nominate another 15 bloggers that you can pass the award to. So here goes….

  1. I was a horse-mad girl and spent most of my teenage years involved with horses…
  2. My favourite smells, fresh baked bread, freshly mown grass and sweaty horses…
  3. I love gardening…
  4. I am a bit of a control freak: a place for everything and everything in its place…
  5. Travel is an abiding passion: what is round the corner and over the hill…
  6. Travel and true life adventure books are my favourite reads…
  7. Finally, dare I admit it, I am 70 y.o. but feel 50….

Now for the bloggers I follow in no particular order, as they say in the reality shows. ….

  1. http://norrisaroundaustralia.com/feed/
  2. http://amazingazaleas.wordpress.com/

I have added another I almost missed off my list, number 16 a great travel blog.

I enjoy following these blogs. Some are gardening, some are travel, some are photography. All are worth a look-see.

Well Ric that was quite a challenge you gave me presenting me the award, but I have enjoyed putting this post together.
