Somebody Thinks My Blog is Inspiring!

My friend Kathy recently included me in her list of seven bloggers to receive The Inspiring Blog Award.

Kathy, you’re a treasure, and I thank you most sincerely!

Now, this award brings a few “regulations,” including:

  • Share seven little-known facts about yourself
  • Pass the award on to seven other deserving bloggers

(What is it about the number seven and these awards??)

Anyway, before I expound on how prevalent “seven” is in the Bible, or in nature, or music, or whatever, let’s get to the facts about moi —

  1. My first car was a sea-foam green color.
  2. My first dog was a smooth-haired dachshund.
  3. I still have a scar on my knee from where I was trying to manually raise my bicycle’s sticky kickstand as a kid.
  4. I hate stupidity. And cauliflower.
  5. I find much peace being near water, though not in it.
  6. I was twenty-one before I got my ears pierced (just the lobes, thank you very much).
  7. I got my first drivers license on my sixteenth birthday.

Whew, that wasn’t easy. I probably should’ve added that I consider myself a very private person, so making lists for public consumption isn’t exactly a stroll in the park!

Let’s turn the page and get to my nominees for The Inspiring Blog Award. Here they are, in no particular order:

  1. Odd Loves Company. Katybeth never fails to make me laugh. Or think. And I admire that she blogs every day (sometimes more than once!).
  2. The Water Witch’s Daughter. Suzicate offers spectacular photography, poems, and inspiring words of wisdom.
  3. JannaT Writes. And write she does. Plenty of short fiction, poems, and entries into the Trifecta weekly writing challenge. Where does she find the time?
  4. My Inner Chick. Kim writes openly and honestly about the love she has for her sister, who was murdered going on three years ago. Love that deep is inspiring.
  5. These are Days…You’ll Remember. Terri works full time, has practically grown kids, and recently added a second dog. She’s also an organ doner. How inspiring is that?
  6. Marc and Angel Hack Life. These two offer “practical tips for productive living.” What that means is, you’ll find sensible suggestions for lots of things plus inspiration galore.
  7. God Speaks I Listen. Tanya is the wife of a minister and writes of her deep Faith and Love for God. Her writing inspires and educates.

If I’ve nominated anybody who’s already been selected, I apologize. The rest of you know what to do. Get busy!
