And the Award Goes to...

Another blog review under my belt and I want to return the favor to my fellow bloggers. Ms. C was very kind to award me with The Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks Ms. C! (To visit her blog, click here)

There are 4 rules that come with the award:
1 - thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them when creating the award post
2 - share seven things about yourself
3 - pass the award on to 15 recently discovered blogs
4 - contact the bloggers to let them know about the award

Seven facts about myself and they’re in no particular order (almost):
1) I love animals
2) I am a vegetarian
3) I love traveling (I want to be fair here to all the countries I’ve visited, so I’ll keep my favorite destination(s) a secret)
4) Writing has become my second passion
5) Blogging has become an addiction (LOL!)
6) I’m a social butterfly
7) I have a fascination for foreign languages
I've chosen 7 of my favorite bloggers for this award based on the quality and message of their blogs (it was really difficult for me to choose as I like a slew of blogs out there). For those I have listed, please don't feel obligated to follow up on the rules of the award. By the way, the nominees are in no particular order.

Drum roll please!

1) One Word Pundit, for her inspirational posts.
2) The Giraffability of Digressions, for her quirky posts, keen observations on everyday life, and for her love of giraffes.
3) Writers in the Sky Podcast, for her professionalism and willingness to help other writers.
4) Artsy Butterfly, for her lovely posts, photographs, and creativity.
5) NouveauWriter, for her insightful posts.
6) Thomasinatafur, for her dedication to helping businesswomen.
7) Metamorphosis, for her positive attitude and creative soul.

Please click on each of their names in order to visit their blogs. Congratulations to the winners!

  7. To the winning ladies,
    The honor is mine to have you as fellow bloggers. I am a loyal follower and I love reading your posts. ;)

    To Maria,
    LOL! Hmmm, I see I've piqued your curiosity, but if I tell you what's my #1 passion then it's no fun. ;) It's always good to leave something to the imagination (especially when you're a writer!)

    To Ben,
    Yes, you'll have more blogs to visit, but they're worth it. ;)

  8. Claudia - congratulations on the award, and thank you so much for passing it on to me! I especially loved how you described my blog. I am most honored :)

  9. THANK YOU! And, KUDOS TO YOU!! I love what I do and want to help women all over the world!! I appreciate the recognition from someone as talented as YOU!!.


  10. Congratulations on your award! It's nice to learn more about you. I'm also fascinated with foreign languages -- I need to brush up on my foreign vocabulary, though.

  11. Hurrah for vegetarians! :) And how is writing only your *2nd* passion? That doesn't seem possible in my world.

    Congrats on your award, and thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always wonderful to meet another face. I love that you and your cats found each other. Our stories weren't quite so dramatic, but we love them all the same :)
