The Versatile Blogger Award

versatile_blogger_award

I’m finally getting around to this!

Back in mid-November The Belmont Rooster e-mailed me to ask if I would accept The Versatile Blogger award if he nominated me. I was so excited that I did a search about what this actually means (still being very new to the blogging world I didn’t even know there were awards!), and read about all these rules that had to be followed if you got nominated. I immediately e-mailed him back with a big “yes” and began writing 7 things about myself (as the rules said to do). He kindly wrote back and explained to me that you follow the rules in a post on your blog and that he hadn’t even officially nominated me yet. I’m still a bit of an enthusiastic puppy when it comes to any positive feedback/likes/comments on my blog!

So, now that I’m officially accepting the award (not just via e-mail!), I’ll follow the rules.

Firstly, a big thankyou to The Belmont Rooster for nominating me! As you know, I was very excited! The next job is to nominate 15 fellow bloggers for the award. My nominations (in no particular order) are:

Allotment Adventures With Jean

Out Of My Shed

The Jones Garden Blog

nwgreengirl

The Garden Smallholder

YKGardener’s Blog

The Transplanted Gardener

Ramblin’ Through Dave’s Garden

Nominees, don’t feel you need to do anything about this nomination. You can just treat it as a virtual thumbs up/high five/smile. If you do want to accept the award though, the instructions on what to do are here: http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/.

The next rule is that I have to tell you 7 things about myself.

1. I bought our first Christmas tree in mid November and put it up straight away, along with the 6 decorations we’ve collected over the past couple of years. So much for waiting until December!

2. I live in a beautiful old Victorian house in Melbourne and never want to leave!

3. I live next door to my cousins (awesome neighbours!).

4. I do 12.5 hour shifts at work, so I have 3-4 days off every week. Love it!

5. I have a science degree and a masters of nursing practice and am busily deciding what to study next (to fill in my days off with some brain stimulation).

6. My partner and I are planning to adopt a puppy next year (who will no doubt destroy our beloved garden but we’ll still love them unconditionally).

7. I hate running but have just started up again. I plan to run twice a week in addition to my pilates. I’m on track after one and a half weeks (3 whole runs!). I’m hoping if I keep it up I’ll eventually decide I like it – wish me luck!

Ok, so that’s all the tasks complete. Now I get to put a pretty logo on my blog! If you accept this award and want to display it, just search for The Versatile Blogger in google images, choose a logo you like and copy the URL. Then go to widgets and paste the URL where it asks for it.

Happy blogging 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination, which is greatly appreciated. It’s going to be a while till I can do anything about it, though, as I’m in the middle of putting together my response to being nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award!
