The Versatile Blogger Award
I’ll begin by saying, as I did in my comment at David’s blog, that this was a shocker! Having tried and failed at blogging many a time, I must say that, without being too cheesy, that hard work pays off. Being committed to this blog for only a few weeks now, David McGowan has very kindly nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award.
Check out his blog to delve yourself into a world of great writing posts, not without a touch of humour and a load of assistance for any writer out there: http://davidmcgowanauthor.com/
By receiving this nomination, I’ve been required to say seven things about myself. Here goes:
- I talk in my sleep
- I was born in Scotland but moved too young and unfortunately lost an accent I wish I had 😦 When I did move, a fellow classmate told off me because he couldn’t understand what I was saying
- The story I’m currently writing is called ‘Rupert McLong’s Extraordinary Dying Wishes’ (and I love it!)
- I watched at least one Criminal Mind’s episode everyday from January 9th to April 9th, until I finally caught up with the TV timings
- Without the Books and Authors section on Yahoo! Answers, my life would not be the same
- My enneagram personality type is Type 3
- My current favourite song is Don’t Look Back in Anger by Oasis

- Christi Corbett’s blog is best if you’re looking for a different tangent on writing, a real personal perspective on books and the best writing quotes (http://christicorbett.wordpress.com/).
- The Write Life follows the journey of an aspiring writer working towards being published and that’s not without the writing advice and experiences she has encountered herself (http://janeswritelife.wordpress.com/)
- Pany (My observations of life) Reading Pany’s thoughts has been a delight. It’s a different sort of blog than I would already read, but nonetheless, as interesting 🙂 (http://pany123.wordpress.com/)
- Bare Knuckle Writer is a blog that I personally put under the category of expert blogging. Her style of writing, full of both a witty conversational tone and evident intellectualism is a must read (http://bareknucklewriter.com/)
- ArabWriterChick is only a recent blog I’ve been following – I love her poems. It’s as simple as that (http://arabwriterchick.com/)
- Nothing to Read Here is another blog about a writer’s journey to be published. I love it. A lot of things are things I can relate to, and knowing there’s another person out there who feels the same is just great. (http://taureanw.com/)
- I think I’ve left one of my favourite’s till last. Kathryn’s Inbox’s tagline is: A Cooler Kind of Blog. I couldn’t agree more. Adding interested and much needed reviews of books, her own experience as a writer, interviews, literary quotes, Kathryn’s blog ticks pretty much all the boxes!
