Well I must say that I am surprised and somewhat confounded that I would get a notification on my blog this morning to the affect of being nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award. Upon further investigation, I realized that it was not in fact an official award of any kind, but a simple tribute from one blogger to another informing them that they appreciate what is being said. In this particular instance, Lea At Sea telling me among several other more worthy bloggers that she appreciated our endeavors. Therefore, with out further adieu, I say thank you to Lea At Sea and wish to inform her that I value simple appreciation from people such as she more than any award in the traditional sense of the word. (Certificates, ribbons, etc.) While I have not and, I pray, never will blog out of hope for praise and admiration of others, it is always encouraging to find that someone beside yourself finds your interests, thoughts, and mumblings to be worthwhile.
Now on to the business end of this nomination. The rules of The Versatile Blogger Award are as follows.
If you have been nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award.
- Thank the person who gave you this award. (If you want to. Added by me.)
- Include a link to their blog.
- Next, select 15 bloggers that you have recently discovered or follow regularly.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
This is where I run into difficulties. First of all, I don’t follow 15 blogs and I don’t feel exactly right about recommending blogs I have never read before today. Call it what you will, I like to be somewhat careful what I put my stamp of approval on. That being said, I will now nominate several of the blogs I do follow and would recommend.
The Heffington Post: A blog devoted to pointing out peculiarities, foibles, problems, and Humorous qualities of our culture today.
A Simple Glimpse of the Whole Picture: A photography blog of a good friend of mine, who also has a website. A simple Glimpse Photography
Thoughts From the Corner: Various and sundry musings of another good friend.
Of Strength, Love, and Silver Linings: Another blog devoted to the sharing of thoughts and ideas.
The Inkpen Authoress: A fun blog that is built around literary works and pursuits.
And now for the time of introspection. Here are seven random things about Wyatt Fairlead.
1: I love old things. Antique furniture, old books, Victorian era houses, and most other old fashioned things get me excited.
2: I love the outdoors. There are few things better in my mind than taking a walk through a hard wood forest on a crisp fall morning.
3: No one in my family was born in the same state and I have lived in three states and moved six times in my seventeen years of existence.
4: I am a shy person around people I don’t know, but would rather stand out in a crowd than blend in and do something I feel uncomfortable doing.
5: I have an interest in woodworking and doing things with my hands.
6: I also have an interest in learning how to do 3D animation. (Inexplicably) 🙂
7: Spiders give me the creeps, but I have yet to find anything else that bothers me like that.
