Note 360 – About the Versatile Blogger Award

I’m touched to have received the Versatile Blogger Award for the second time.  A very big thank you to Heart Whispers for nominating me (Heart Whispers is a fantastic blog – definitely worth a visit).  Also, it’s taken over a week to pass this on – I had to schedule a place in these last few posts of my writing challenge (6 days to go now….yippee!). 

Before launching into the nominees and 7 random things about me, I thought I’d note my findings about the VBA (Versatile Blogger Award)…

Researching this award

I did a little research about this award and someone has actually set up a site called to tell you what the award is about and how to pass it on.  There is also a list of VBA (Versatile Blogger Award) winners on a blogroll.  If you want your name on there, you just leave a comment on the post


In order to truly receive this award you must…

  • Nominate 15 other bloggers.
  • Include the award (image) in the post.
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link them into the post.
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Include the rules in the post.
  • Inform every blogger that you’ve nominated by posting on their blog.

My nominees

I was supposed to nominate 15 last time I received the award, but only nominated 7, so I’m now nominating an additional 8. I’ve also tried to pick people who I haven’t nominated for any other type of award before.  Here they are in no particular order:

  1. Marya – Writing Happiness
  2. Ali Luke –
  3. That Writing Lady – That Writing Lady
  4. Live to Write – Write to Live – 
  5. London Market Broking –
  6. Write to Done –
  7. Seaswift –
  8. Deb’s Answers –

7 things about me

  1. I love the sunrise and sunset.
  2. I love going out for a chinese and having crispy aromatic duck, pork with cashew nuts and yellow bean sauce and chinese tea!
  3. Every day at around 3pm, I eat a snack (mainly chocolate & nuts), washed down with a lovely cup of tea.
  4. I love the reading time I get with my girls, just before they go to bed.
  5. I plan to reach 100 years of age – which leaves me 57 more years to write books, blogs and articles!
  6. I would love a two-week break in the sun this year with my family, as I haven’t been on holiday for 3 years (all together now…ahhh!).
  7. I am determined to reach Note 366 on My Writing Challenge next Monday! 

That’s all for today…

Until tomorrow…

6 days of My Writing Challenge to go…
