One Lovely Blogger Award
One Lovely Blogger Award

Thank you kindly to Sally Cronin, one of the blogosphere’s most avid versatile bloggers I know, for nominating my blog for this award.


The Versatile Blogger Awards – Thanks and nominees. | Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life.

Sally writes on her blog at SmorgasbordInvitation, an appropriate name for her diverse blogging skills. She writes about numerous topics from wellbeing articles to showcasing writers, musicians and the likes. Sally also shares the works of many writers on her pages, and has several books published, many of them offering up a wealth of information on various health topics. Read more about Sally on her About Page, linked below, and be sure to visit some of her wonderful blog posts.

There are a few rules that are attached to the acceptance of this award and they are as follows:-

– Show the award on your blog

– Thank the person who nominated you

– Share seven facts about yourself

– Nominate up to fifteen blogs

– Link your nominees’ blogs, and let them know


Seven facts about me:


1. I am known to many as ‘the one in a million girl’ because if there is a small percentage that something could happen, it happens to me. I am left wondering then, why I can’t win a lottery?

2. People gravitate to me as a confidante. I always seem to have answers and solutions for others, yet find myself battling my own two minds (I’m a Gemini) with my own decisions.

3. I am a justice seeker. I am relentless when it comes to righting a wrong.

4. I write a lot about self esteem issues in hopes to empower others through my own experiences. Although I’ve conquered many hurdles, I find that it is always an ongoing process.

5. I love to laugh and sometimes without intention, have an uncanny ability to make others laugh. It’s healthy medicine.

6. I love reading books about spirituality, laws of attraction, angels, and wish there were more hours in a day to read the many books that await my eyes on my bookshelf. If I wasn’t a writer, I’d be perfectly content to read my days away.

7. I love to share great info with others. Whether it be a department store sale, a great recipe or great tips on writing right here on my blog, expect me to talk about it.

I could think of well over fifteen or fifty blogs that I know well-deserve this award, and for those reasons I know that many of these people have been nominated before, and as I always do when nominated and nominating others, I invite all of my wonderful blogging friends to help yourself to cutting and pasting this award on your own pages.

Today I nominate a few women who write about inspiration, empowering women, and who share a lot of themselves through their writing:

JaneCarrollAuthorJane Carroll

Alabama author Jane Carroll gives a face, a wardrobe, and a flare to inspirational humor. Her writing weaves a rich tapestry of humor, inspiration, insight, southern roots, and friendship; perfect for readers in the empty nest period of life. An advocate for life beyond 40, Jane’s words encourage, empower and motivate others who have seen trials and hardships. Readers pour over her words on her blog and in her book. They email and message her how a paragraph or sentence helped them through a difficult time, how her humor sparked a ray of hope and the will to go on, and how they found inspiration and healing.

A Holistic Journey Diana (Wayfarer)

I am a Woman out of the Lost & Found.


Gosh, it’s been fast. The little girl feeling from first grade is a clear memory. How many annual calendar pages do you tear off in 40 years? 480. Beyond the 1/10 of these sheets that marked my prologue in Korea, my life divides into thirds. The first chapter written in NYC, the second in PA that suburbanized the college girl, the third in CA that ruralized the wife and mom. (At least in contrast to the zip and dash of life in the Big Apple. Cows across the street now.) Read more here


And finally, as Sally suggests, if you do not have the time to repost and share your award with others, simply accept this box of chocolates she has offered up on her own blog. 🙂 chocolates   The Versatile Blogger Awards – Thanks and nominees. | Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life.
