This certainly has been a week of amazing happenings for me, not least this touching nomination from Aparna, aka the wonderful poet behind Midnighthues Poetry. Thank you so very much Aparna, you have left me speechless.
Now reading what I have to do in this response I am thing oh heck how do I choose those I nominate, not an easy decision as there so many superb bloggers out there. I will try and offer a versatile selection as that surely reflects the award. I appreciate all the fantastic blogs I read from fellow poets, the cooking writers, photographers, artists, music and special interests writers. I actually had the pleasure of meeting one of my nominees in the real world yesterday, and I had to keep silent as I had already decided his blog was my list which was a little surreal. Anyway enough of my jabber let’s get to the rules of this award.
- In a post on your blog, nominate 10 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award; and link to them.
- In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award badge.
- In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
- In the same post share 10 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
- In the same post, include this set of rules.
- Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
