The Versatile Blogger Award

My friend and fellow blogger and author extraordinaire, Alissa Grosso, awarded me The Versatile Blogger. Sweet!

While I believe that these awards are kind of like those chain letters – that are more like chain emails these days – I think that they are a great way to check out new blogs. And no bad luck is attached to this award if you choose not to follow the rules!

I’m sure to a certain extent this is like whisper down the lane where the rules have been tweaked a little bit each time it’s received, but for those of you who choose to pass the love along, here are some guidelines for you to follow.

1. Create a link back to the blog where you received the award.

2. Write SEVEN interesting facts about yourself that relate to the corresponding number. A little confusing, but see below for the example.

One, the number of dogs I have – Jackson, a miniature dachshund.

Two, the number of states I needed to visit this past week to complete my visit to all 50 states.

Three, the number of countries I visited this summer – Switzerland, France, Spain.

Four, the number of times I try to run each week.

Five, the number of nieces and nephews I have. Well, after my sister-in-law has her baby in September.

Six, the number of states that I’ve lived in – New Jersey, California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware.

Seven,  the number of days each week that I try to write!

3. Nominate 15 other blogs/bloggers to receive this award and let them know they’ve received it. I’m going to nominate 5 of my favorites.

Danica @ The Chic Runner – Great blog devoted to running with delightful anecdotes about her daily life.

Lisa & Laura Roecker @ Lisa and Laura Write – I visit this site for my daily dose of laughter. The sisters are witty and snarky in their views on the world and give great insights in their journey into the world of being newly published authors.

Audrey @ Holes in my Brain – A great blog about YA books with a topping of cultural insights to make this blog a fun read.

Molly @ A Dazzling Distraction – Another wonderful blog that centers around YA novels, authors, and book reviews.

Jennifer @ Unedited: My Journey to Becoming an Author – As an aspiring author I love reading new blogs about others and their quest to becoming published authors. Jennifer writes about her writing journey as well as news and books in the world of literature.

Feel free to pass on the award and the love! 🙂
