The Versatile Blogger Award


I recently received notifications from both Madhurima from Nostalgic Lemon and Rachel from Book Reviews & Stuff that they had both nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! They both have really great blogs – go check them out, I can wait.


Oh good, you came back. *whew*
Thanks again to both Madhurima and Rachel for the nominations! That said, I’m only going to do this once since I got the nominations around the same time.

versatile-bloggerThe rules of this award are:

  • Thank your nominator
  • Share the award on your blog
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Choose 10 new nominees who have fewer than 300 followers
  • Notify them via social media


So, here are 7 things about me:

  1. I was in a creative slump earlier in the year which caused me to not write for a while. I’m now getting out of that but I’m also not pushing myself to write if I don’t want to.
  2. Despite hating gym class as a kid, I now love working out. I go to group exercise classes at least 4-5 days most weeks. And I can tell a difference in my mood if I don’t go for more than a couple days.
  3. Old men love to flirt with me (this is not a brag, by the way). I have been told that I have “eyes of champion” by a Russian table-tennis instructor and asked if I was ticklish – ewww – by an older guy behind me in line at a pet food store. All this despite what I would describe as my natural RBF.
  4. I still get carded at age 37 and it is one of the best things in the world!
  5. My hometown is Flint, Michigan – known currently for the high lead-levels in the water. When I was younger, the city was known for its high crime rate and General Motors closing automobile factories. But there’s a beautiful side to the city – lots of cultural and artistic institutes and some amazing colleges.
  6. My celebrity crushes are Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Pratt. My husband reminds me of Chris Pratt but I met him before I ever saw Chris Pratt in anything so this wasn’t an elaborate “get Chris Pratt’s lookalike to marry you” plot on my part. Or was it.
  7. On a return flight from London, I turned a corner to exit LAX and was blinded by paparazzi flashbulbs. Rita Ora had apparently been on my plane and was leaving right in front of me. I got caught in the crossfire and wound up in some of the photos. (My husband made a cameo, too.) You can see I am less than impressed and have no idea what was going on.

But enough about me! Here are my nominees:

  1. April at Swimming Through Literature
  2. Steve at The Red Pen
  3. Kathryn at
  4. Katie at
  5. The Girl Who Reads
  6. Emma at Wedges of Lemon
  7. Rachel at Journal of a Bibliophile
  8. Caitlyn at Rhodes of Reading
  9. Offauna at Read Eat Quote
  10. Olivia at Pints and Pages

Please check out all of their wonderful blogs, and thanks so much for reading mine!
