Versatile Monday Morning Buzz

It began like any other weekday morning. Monday arrived with an alarming blare. The coffee buzz I sought had yet to kick in. But, as I  scanned my unread e-mails, I noticed a message from a new, WordPress, blogging buddy, Leonie Lucas.

Leonie, honored me with my second Versatile Blogger Award. The buzz from receiving such an honor turned my ho-hum morning into one I’ll remember forever. So, I truly thank Leonie for reading and recognizing my blog. Her blog — Writing, One Page at A Time — touched me the other day because while enjoying time with her six-month-old, Leonie began submitting her work for publication and to writing contests. Those are both goals of mine as well.

Upon accepting the Versatile Blogger Award, there are three rules.

Rule 1: Reveal seven things you probably don’t know about me

  1. The New York Giants are my favorite for Superbowl Sunday.
  2. I need to eat tacos at least once a week. Crunchy shells rule.
  3. When I get pissed off I clean my house.
  4. Nutella should be promoted as the next super food. Just kidding.
  5. When I can’t sleep I read online tabloid comments.
  6. Cheech and Chong movies still make me laugh so hard I cry.
  7. I read Lucky Magazine every month and go sticker crazy.

Rule 2: Select and award 15 bloggers with the Versatile Blogger Award. The following list links you with blogs I have not plugged in previous award posts.

1. Kelly at Dances With Chaos. She is the writer I want to be when I grow up. Her posts are always superb and touch so many at various levels on such a broad stroke of topics. Always a great read.

2. The next six are blogs that push and inspire me to become a better, more consistent, dedicated writer.

Limebird Writers

Victoria-writes

Talinorfali

Kate Policani

My Name is Not Bob

Six Sentences

3. There are blogs I am becoming better acquainted with that make me pause and stay awhile. They all weave the right combination of words and/or pictures to make each visit memorable.
