Versatile Blogger Award

11 Jan

Image I’ve just received the Versatile Blogger Award!

Wow!  Pretty Cool!  Look it up, it’s a real thing!  Actually, it’s a very nice way for people to recognize each other’s efforts in blogging.  Once you are ‘nominated’ by another blogger you are automatically a recipient of the award with all it’s fame and prestige.  It reminds me of the ‘Red Rose Awards’ we used to give each other when I was teaching.  During one of the last staff meetings of the year, our principal used to present us with several dozen roses.  Each of us, as the spirit moved us, would go to the front of room, pick up a rose, and present it to another staff member for some small favor or great help they had been to us during the year. Each rose was presented with a hug and a word or two about why it was being presented. It was always an emotional meeting and hopefully (but sadly, not always) everyone would return to work that morning with a rose or two and a wonderful feeling to start the day.  So receiving this award tonight is like getting a virtual hug and a bit of praise from another blogger on your work.

UnknownThank you to Orthodoxmom3, Carol, who is a wonderful mother and faithful servant, for nominating me for this award.  This award really is special just by being a confirmation of the time and effort put into my craft, and I do appreciate the recognition very much.

You can read more about Carol at her blog.


In the spirit of paying it forward, I would like to nominate the following 15 folks to receive this award.  I chose them based on my own interaction with them on my blog and through the various online workshops we have taken together.  I have gotten to know each one and value their input.  Take a moment and look them up.  These really are some amazing people!

As part of the deal in accepting this award, I need to let you know seven things about me that you may not already know:

1. I have a love/hate relationship with chocolate. I lied.  I have a love/love relationship with chocolate.

2. I do not get cabin fever, in fact I much prefer my own home to any other place.

3. I am non-confrontational, and you will never catch me engaging in a political argument.  That’s not the same as saying I don’t have opinions, I do, I just keep them to myself.

4. I find sports very soothing, in that I can completely ignore them and read quietly while my husband watches the TV.

5. My favorite movies make me laugh loudly or cry quietly.

6. I love/envy/covet large old home-libraries.

7. Making lists is not my thing, so this took an unnecessarily long time to complete.

    Hi Juliana, thanks for the award. I guess you didn’t connect that I’m the same person for the 2 blogs you awarded (this one and my photography website). I do keep my motherhood blog semi-anonymous but I’m glad you thought my two blogs were worthy enough to receive this award. Milka

      No, I sure didn’t! Perfecting Motherhood has no photo of you or your name anywhere on it. Regardless, I do like both of your blogs and now you can put the award on both of them! 🙂

    Thank you for the kind nomination. I like #4 and #6. Don’t necessarily find sports soothing, but I can block it out and read.

      You’re right Pat. It’s only soothing when my husband falls asleep watching… otherwise it’s pretty noisy around here! I should think of a better adjective.

    Hip, hip, hooray for you, Juliana! All the best! Read & write everyday.

      Thank you! Should I start writing my acceptance speech for the academy? 🙂


      • Prairie Garden Girl January 12, 2014 at 4:32 PM #

        Well, of course. Writing an acceptance speech would just mean you are honing the craft of writing! 😉
