Versatile Blogger Award

I’m grateful to accept The Versatile Blogger award given to Motherlogue by Tia at Depression Cookies. Tia is one of those e-friends I made through the WordCount blogathon and felt an instant connection. It means a lot that you selected my blog for this award, Tia, thank you!

The Rules of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs (contact them to let them know).

So, I am a fan of thanking others in person, of sending notes, and giving words of encouragement to others. When it comes to seven things about myself — what do I say? Well, read on.

1. I recently – 2 months ago – went gluten free. It made a huge difference in my life. My stomach issues have decreased dramatically, I have more energy and initially I lost some weight. Then, about two weeks ago, I decided to have a hamburger. And a bun. Not a good move. Fast forward four days post burger and BAM! I hit the wall. Aches. Fever. And then leg cramps. After one week, I am finally feeling better again. Now I’m wondering if I’ve created more of a problem with this stomach solution?

2. I love to tell stories and make people laugh.

3. I was voted most humorous in my high school graduating class. At the time I kind of wished I was voted best dressed (ha!) or best couple (ha! needed a boyfriend for that one) or even most likely to succeed. Now my “most humorous title” is one of the things that makes me smile. I bet Tina Fey was voted most humorous, too. That’s why I need to get on her calendar.

4. I am an only child.

5. I begin a six-month, unpaid sabbatical from my day job on 10/3/11.

6. I can order a pizza, over the phone, in Japanese.

7. Over my desk I have wooden figure that reminds me each and every day, “Tell your story.” And that’s what I intend to do.

And now for 15 great blogs (in no particular order) that I follow and hope you’ll take a moment to check out, too:

  1. Dollars and Deadlines
  2. The Renegade Writer
  3. Imp3rfect Mom
  4. AKA Writer

    Thanks for listing me. I appreciate being in such great company.
    I love #3, a great reminder that what we get is often better than what we want. Best wishes on #5… any big, exciting plans? So cool on #6.
    I’ll be checking out your blog suggestions. Hugs!

    Hi Liz! Thanks for including me in your list of Versatile Bloggers. I’m quite honored and I’ll be checking out the others that I don’t know yet. 😉

    So, a person just has to ask: Why do you know how to order pizza over the phone in Japanese?! Did you live there? Or is it just one of those things a person picks up in life? 😉
