These last few days at My Sardinian Life | La Mia Vita Sarda have been busy ones. I was awarded with The Liebster Blog Award on September 22nd, and just yesterday I was awarded with The Versatile Blogger Award by sami116 over at The Embarrassment. This is My Sardinian Life’s second Versatile Award and I appreciate the effort The Embarrassment took into adding me on their list of great blogs.
The rules are as follows for receiving and awarding The Versatile Blogger Award:
1. Post a link to the person who gave you the award thanking them for the award.
2. Tell your readers seven random things about yourself.
3. Award up to 15 newly discovered blogs.
4. Send them a note letting them know you nominated them.
Without further ado here are seven random facts about My Sardinian Life | La Mia Vita Sarda.
- I never thought I would publish anything, let alone be awarded with three outstanding blogging awards.
- I have been a writer since I could pick up a pencil. I still have old poems and songs I’ve written from when I was eight years old.
- My dream has always been to live by the ocean.
- I have really big feet. Size 11 by North American standards and size 43 by European standards.
- My husband and I met. Then ten years and an ocean separated us.
- I’ve played: soccer, basketball, karate, Thai kick boxing and regular boxing.
- When I was a kid I wanted to be a jet fighter pilot.
And now I must award up to fifteen other blogs with this great award. However, fifteen is a lot and I’ve just given shout-outs from receiving the Liebster Blog Award. Seeing this is my second Versatile Blogger Award I’m going to break the rules.
I love scouring WordPress to find new and exciting blogs. I’ve used the helpful Readomattic here on WordPress for sometime and have come across some serious blogs. Right now, in this moment I am going to open the Readomattic and the first five blogs that catch my attention will receive The Versatile Blogger Award.
- The Penny Farthing – Now in Amsterdam. – Well, snaperiffic. I found a super-duper new blog, that I have subscribed to. The reason I clicked on this link in the Readomattic is because I know what a penny farthing is. And any post titled A Trip to the Beach is a winner in my books. I will be following this Americans adventures in Amsterdam, I suggest you should to.
- 18th Moon – I clicked on this link because I just love the title of this blog. And in their latest post they have a photo of purple ice cream,and I love ice cream and the colour purple. And here’s a tidbit from their About page: “Writing from Nijmegen, the Netherlands…but covering distant places, times and people. The 18th Moon?A place to imagine. And re-imagine.”
- DUFFY THE WRITER – I clicked this wonderful link in Readomattic because Duffy rhymes with Buffy and Buffy used to be a vampire slayer. Then I started to read this blog and I found that they, like me, love Cat Stevens. Plus they live in my favorite city of all time Sydney, Australia. Makes me warm with memories all over again.
- before you write: lou belcher. The one and only reason I clicked on this link in the Readomattic is because their Gravatar is a sunflower, just like mine. Then I discovered this blog is brilliant! I mean their latest post Getting over yourself – making the transition from thinking to writing is a great post and helped me oodles. This is one blog I’m subscribing to, he’s a freelance writer, editor and coach. A hero in my books.
- Source of Inspiration – the following is a beautiful quote I’ve taken from this blog. It pretty much sums up how I feel. I hope others will follow. “In our New World,there is no such thing as natural enemies. Nor do we have to eat each other to survive. There are no fences, walls,or locks on the doors. We can walk safely day or night; smile at strangers and say, “Welcome to our neighborhood.” We are One with all there is in this New World of Love.”
I hope you’ve enjoyed my backwards re-awarding of The Versatile Blogger Award.
