Versatile Blogger, Say What… (Updated)

Thank you so much Chris of Introspections During Quiet Time for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award. I’ve only been a member of this awesome blog world for just over a month, and I must say, I never even thought ANYONE would read my posts, let alone like/comment/follow me. And I definitely didn’t think someone would nominate me. So again, thank you!!

Now, I know this isn’t an Oscar or anything, but it’s still totally awesome. I created this blog on a whim, and I’m so glad I did. It’s so much more interactive than I could have imagined, and there are so many great/funny people here. I truly enjoy reading everyone’s awesome posts. And I’m grateful to everyone who has stopped by and read some of my randomness!

These are the rules of this award:
1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you and include a link to their blog.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Give the award to 15 or more bloggers.

Random Things About Me (in a totally random order)

1. I don’t believe in the five-second rule. More like the thirty-second rule.
2. I get really impatient at grocery stores. People…too many of them.
3. I love animals and despise anyone capable of hurting them.
4. I was in a long-distance relationship with my current boyfriend for several years. We made it despite the odds. πŸ˜€
5. I’m obsessed with WordPress. It’s the first thing I check in the morning. I’m not even popular, but so what?!
6. I can be a total dork.
7. I can also be a total smart-ass…not to be confused with being bitchy. πŸ˜‰

My Nominations

Nominating 15 or more bloggers kind of intimidates me. As I said, I’m still pretty new, and I don’t know all THAT many people. I’m also sure some people may not be interested in participating in this whole award thing, in which case, no pressure…don’t hate me. A couple of these bloggers have tons of followers and have probably been nominated a few times. But here’s my list anyway, in alphabetical order, or at least I think it’s in alpha order!

Becky Says Things (love her sense of humor and drawings)
boomie bol (really like her poems)
clotildajamcracker (has a way with telling stories)
Go Jules Go (Super awesome chipmunk, I mean blogger, who I’m sure we all know!)
High, High, Higher! (funny, real, and we have the same name :D)
Hilarity is (also my kind of humor)
idiot-prufs (okay, you can see I’m all about the humor)
In My Opinion… (I like her view of things)
Jae Lei Nyght (lovely writing)
Joe’s Shitty Ideas (the shitty ideas are quite funny)
Shit No One Cares About (my kind of humor)
Slapppshot (always sharing inspirational things)
Snotting Black (like her attitude/humor)
The Byronic Man (Super funny/sarcastic, and I know you all know him!)
The Life of Jamie (funny stories)

Well, that’s that! I’ll eventually get around to notifying these lovely people. πŸ˜‰ Thanks again Chris, and everyone who’s taken the time to stop by. Check out his blog as well as those I’ve nominated.

Add yours

  1. Hi Lily – congratulations, and thank you so much for nominating me! Like you, I am very new to this blogging madness, so haven’t quite got to grips with this awards thing (replace ‘quite’ with ‘at all’), but thanks to your superb instructions above I shall get right on it! Thanks again πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Becky! And you’re welcome…I didn’t even realize you were pretty new too! At first I was like ahhh, I can’t handle this award nomination thing! But it’s fun. πŸ˜‰ Good luck!

        1. No worries! The same way you add your lovely drawings, I think! πŸ˜‰ Just right click on the picture and save it, then when you make your post, just insert the image. Hope that helps!

      1. Totally up to you. I often wait a bit to get back to awards posts because I’m discovering blogs all the time. And to be honest I never nominate the right number of blogs either. So yeah, it’s your party! πŸ˜‰

        1. Oh that’s smart, I could just wait. Except I can be kind of forgetful. 😦 I’ll do that though. Maybe I’ll be a rebel too and just nominate however many people I want next time! Rule breaker. πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations Lily! I’m new as well to the blog life so I am infinitely grateful for your post on how I do this…Thank you so much for nominating me! πŸ™‚

  3. Congratulations Lily, aka, blogger with the WORLD’S CUTEST GRAVATAR!

    Thank you so much for the nomination – I really, REALLY appreciate it, and boy am I in good company πŸ™‚

    I have every single thing on your list in common with you, except for #4 (and a ‘hooray!’ for you two). It’s great having you in the blogosphere!

    1. Thanks Jules! Haha, I did good with my gravatar, I can never change him! I just wish I could make him real. You deserve the nomination. Can’t remember how I stumbled upon your blog but I’m so glad I did. πŸ˜‰ So cool to know I have stuff in common with an awesome popular blogger. πŸ˜€ Sorry, am I being cheesy? πŸ˜‰

      1. He is so magical. And I love cheese! As long as it hasn’t been dropped on the floor for 31 seconds or more πŸ˜‰

        But you’re going to make me blush! The idea that I could ever be ‘popular’ in ANY sense of the word blows my dorky mind. Thank you again – you are SERIOUSLY too kind.

          1. OMG Would you be surprised to hear I’ve actually seen that picture? (Byronic Man did a ’20 questions’ interview with me a while ago and used it as the first pic, ha ha! He is the MASTER of photos/photo captains.)

            And why do I keep doing these contests, because it is IMPOSSIBLE to pick a winner?! Iloved your entry! Thank goodness I can keep doing them on a somewhat regular basis.

            1. Haha, duh, silly me…you’ve probably seen every chipmunk pic, like in existence! πŸ˜‰ He is a master, agreed. Anyway, seriously, how do you have time to even reply to comments! Good luck with the contest/giveaway. πŸ˜€
