A ‘Versatile Blogger?’ Me?

Thanks to Kevin at http://voicesofglass.com/ and to http://trippingdifferently.com/, both of whom were kind enough to nominate me for a “Versatile Blogger” award from WordPress over the past week. I am truly touched by this honor from my newfound blogging friends. I have discovered that the blogging universe is filled with many talented and nurturing writers whose adventures and insights inspire me every day.

OK, as a new honoree I need to do several things. First is thank those who nominated me. Kevin, from voicesofglass.com, is chronicling his journey back from mental illness and is one of the bravest bloggers I’ve met. Trippingdifferently.com is a very enthralling blog about the life of a Singaporean family living in Switzerland (where we, too, have family, in Geneva.) Thank you both!

I also need to share seven random facts about myself, so here goes:
1. I have six children and stepchildren, including two beautiful daughters named Rachel.
2. Kraft macaroni and cheese is a guilty pleasure.
3. I can’t remember what you told me yesterday but am a savant with lyrics to obscure rock songs and B-sides.
4. At age 4, I got a safety pin stuck between my teeth.
5. I love playing Beatles on the piano. My 13-year-old son just learned to accompany me with his trombone on “Got to Get You into My Life” and my heart is bursting with joy.
6. I am married to a brilliant, kind, funny and hardworking man who also does my dishes. :-)
7. I am outwardly neat but my closets are a disaster.  This is a metaphor for many other facets of my life.

Finally, I’d like to pass this award along to 15 wonderful bloggers! Here goes:

  1. Where to start? I think thank you so much would be the best place to start!! You made my day…. actually you my week and I am truly honored to accept this award. Actually, I wasn’t all that refined, I let out a whoooo whooo and did a happy dance! :-) I love cooking and most of all I love cooking for those I love. If I can do that through my blog, and people enjoy my recipes that too makes me extremely happy. I’m new at blogging and to know someone enjoys my blog makes it all worthwhile … so again, thank you so much! :-) What stood out in my mind was the first time I discovered your blog – it was the day you were “freshly pressed” and I “liked” your post. I’m sure you were getting a massive amounts of hits that day, but you took the time and responded right away and visited my blog – thank you, that speaks immensely about you … you definitely deserved this award as well! Have an awesome week. :-)

  2. Congrats Cathy – you most certainly deserve the award!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Congratulations and thank you for nominating me. I really do love your blog, you writing is so fresh and exciting. What do I do now? I see you have revealed 7 random facts and nominated a list to pass the award on to – is ths the protocol or just your blogging generosity?

  4. Hey, Sandwich Lady, I just now read this post. (I’m new to the social media world and having trouble keeping up, to put it mildly). Like Natalie, I want to congratulate you on the nomination (do we get to vote) and to thank you so much for putting me on your list of 15 wonderful bloggers! With only 4.5 blog-posts to my name, I doubt I deserve it, but I certainly do appreciate it.

  5. Thank you so much for nominating my blog! Now, to pick 15 blogs to pass it on to… that’s a tough one! This blogging stuff is turning out to be really fun after all! :)
