Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Medeia Sharif for bestowing the "Very Inspiring Blogger" award to me.  If Medeia had not already been selected, I would have definitely chosen her for the award.  She is one disciplined writer!  She's also a very nice person - always featuring other authors on her site. If you don't already know Medeia, be sure to visit her!




If you get this award, here are the rules:

1.  Thank the person who nominated you.
2.  Nominate bloggers whom you find inspiring
3.  List seven things about yourself

Inspiring Bloggers:

1.  Dana - She's such a warm and friendly lady, and her Sunday Inspirations are truly inspiring!

2.  Christine Rains - Christine is one busy writing mom.  She's an amazing lady!

3.  Journey of Life - Always has great thoughts and fabulous places to visit.

4.  Arlee Bird - Well, this A-Z challenge creator is a blog master.  I don't know how he has time to write so many blogs and keep up with all the commenters.  Definitely inspiring!

5.  Alex Cavanaugh - Captain Ninja himself.  Is he not inspiring?  If you don't know him, go meet him.  You'll be inspired!

6.  Michelle - This lady has a way with words.  She can take a writing prompt and turn it into something amazing!

7.   Archna Sharma -  Her poetry is magic.  You have to read it!


Useless Information About Me You Probably Never Wanted to Know

1.  I never broke a bone until I had kids.  Now I break toes all the time, tripping over my kids' and husband's clutter. 

2.  I can do a headstand, but I couldn't do a cartwheel if my life depended on it.

3.  I am Hungarian and Norwegian.

4.  I'd rather read than watch TV.

5.  I logged over 1000 dives when I was a SCUBA diving instructor.  That's a lot of time underwater!

6.  Skydiving is on my bucketlist.

7.  I'd like to visit Antarctica before it melts. 

So there you have it.  Inspiring bloggers, and uninspiring info about me.  I hope you get to visit these great people.  I'd love to add all of you, but if I did, this post would be ridiculously long!

  1. Thank you, Sherry, for this honor. I was flattered by the comment you left on my blog. I have stopped doing the awards on my blogs as they became so time consuming and it became difficult to come up with new question answers and things about me. I will add this to an ongoing post that I've been doing on Wrote By Rote that I might publish there one day.

    Again, thanks. You are a gem for thinking of me in this way. By the way, I have been falling way short in keeping up with all of my commenters. I try, but I don't seem to keep up like I used to.

    1. You are welcome, Arlee. You are most certainly an inspiration, and I wanted to introduce you to people who may not already know you.

  2. Thank you, Sherry!
    I've received it before, so I shall just graciously accept it here. If I can keep people excited about blogging and life in general, then my job here is done.

    1. You're welcome. I think you've raised the bar on blogging, and have certainly joined people together in the blogosphere. I figured you probably had received this award somewhere along the line, but I still wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration, and I wanted to introduce you to followers who may not know you.

  3. Thanks for the award, Sherry! It was sweet of you to think of me.

    Regarding your second fact: I'm the same way. I have never been able to do a cartwheel, but headstands...they're easy. :)

    1. You're welcome.

      And yes, cartwheels are quite a mystery to me. I guess I'm afraid of landing on my head.

  4. I'd rather read than watch TV too. Great lists!

    1. LOL! Nice to see you bringing your sea to my shore!

      As far as kids go, yeah, they're hazaradous to my health, but I'm really glad I have them! Don't let my broken toes scare you ;)

  6. I enjoyed your seven facts. My mother's family came from Norway and I am the recipient of the Norwegian baking gene in our family. My Christmas cookies are quite popular. I can't stand on my head. I can barely stand on my feet, so I'm very impressed with your accomplishment. Please stop breaking bones.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I inherited the Norwegian baking gene,too. My family is very glad that I did!

      I think I will invest in a pair of steel-toed boots. Maybe that will solve my broken toe problem. LOL!
