7 x 7 Link Award

7 Oct 7x7link-award

Wow! If I had realized how special this award was, maybe I wouldn’t have put other important things to do before it! My sincere thanks go to Peri’s Spice Ladle for nominating me for this award (and for her patience in waiting for me to catch up!)

I realize I could take the easy road and nominate people I have nominated in the past. However, I prefer to search for new nominees not just for my benefit in learning what is out there, but for your benefit too. This way, we both get introduced to more blogs.

Say What?
I had to re-read the rules to this award and I did a double-take at the “previous links” rule. Why, I have to examine my own blog! Now there’s a switch! I get to do some self promotion. Yeaaaaaa!!!

The rules are pretty loose and open to interpretation. They are the most unruly rules I’ve ever come across. This is a good thing and to my liking!

The Rules:

  • Give thanks and acknowledgements to the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • List 7 of your previous links in the following categories. Most Helpful, Most Popular, Most Beautiful Piece, Most Controversial, Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, Most Pride Worthy.
  • List 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate 7 other bloggers for this award.

7 Things about myself:

1. I like 7-Up.

2.My favorite drink used to be 7 & 7.

3.Betty White jokes that she has the hots for Robert Redford. When she kicks the bucket, I want to be next in line for Bob. (Sorry Betty.) Then I’ll be in 7th heaven.

4. I’ve never seen the movies: 7 Brides for 7 Brothers, or The 7 Deadly Sins.

5. I’m not the 7th son (or 7th daughter for that matter).

6. I’ve never been to a 7-Eleven. (Or have I?)

7. I’ve yet to see any of the 7 Wonders of the World in person.

And the Awards go to:

Very Inspiring Blog Award

22 Jul Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I was delighted and surprised to receive a nomination for a Very Inspiring Blog Award from P.C. Zick. I enjoy reading her blog as we have similar interests.

Here are the requirements for this award:

1)      Display the award logo on your blog.

2)      Link back to the person who nominated you.

3)      State 7 things about yourself.

4)      Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.

5)      Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven things about myself

1. I used to take flying lessons. I have 27 1/2 flight hours logged in a Cessna.

2. I have a strong belief in the healing powers of exercise.

3. The more butter I slather on bread, the better it tastes.

4. I was in the color guard in junior high school.

5. Housework is for the birds.

6. I like to sing.

7. I’m a good listener.

My nominations for the Very Inspiring Blog Award –This is going to be a challenge because I’m still new here but I have come across some very worthy blogs. I like some of them for their writing style or their photographs. I like some because their interests are very different from mine and I want to learn more from them. I like some because we have a lot in common and I can relate, and I like some because I admire their creativity. There is one who is an employer and writes an employee blog. It’s very notable. He may not accept my nomination but you win some, you lose some. Nothing ventured, nothing gained I always say.
