The versatile Blogger Award

Posted on


Yesterday I was on a board-game tournament when I wanted to just check my blog, as I have become a real blog-addict lately. I love blogging, since I am fond of writing and find it very calming when I am upset. When I logged in this time, there was a pleasant surprise waiting. One of my readers had included me in the The Versatile Blogger Award (annarosemeeds.wordpress.com). I feel truly honored, since there is so many blogs out there, and I`m not even a native speaker, so I have discovered a lot of really horrible spelling mistakes and grammatical errors afterwards

 

Now, I am excited to pass on this award by nominating fifteen wonderful bloggers.  Please see the rules and more information about the award by visiting The Versatile Blogger.  When you get the award, there are some rules to read through.

 

VBA Rules

 

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Since I got the award, I have to tell 7 things about myself to the person who nominates me.

I am not sure what my blogger-friend would like to know, but I guess I will focus on things I haven`t written before.

1. I am extremly clumsy. This is not an exaggeration, since even my patients have laughed about me in surprise of the degree of my slippery hands.

2. One of my dreams is to see the Taj Mahal

3. I love raspberries

4. I love travelling, and have been in many countries

5. In every country and city I go to, I buy a magnet with the countries name on, and put them on my refrigerator

6. I hate walking on rugs without socks

7. I have phobia against somebody drawing blood out of my body and always look away when people do

My nominees (in random order)

English: The Taj Mahal Česky: Tádž Mahal Autho...

1. Rose with Thorns. The wonderful girl who nominated me. Thanks so much for the award, and I like your posts too!

2. Ajaytao2010. I have been following this blogger for a long time and can recommend his posts:)

3.  . ashokbhatia

A man from India who has family in Norway, and contacted me through the blog. I am extremly fond of travelling and meeting people from other cultures, and have especially found I like the Indian culture.

4. awax1217 or http://barrywax.wordpress.com/: You are a man I have come to really appreciate. You have given me feedsback I truly appreciate, and I have had the chance to read the first chapter of a really interesting crime novel that I look forward to read more about.

5. CHRISTOPHUS SALVATORE.

6. KINDNESS BLOG. A blog sharing small happy stories. Love it!

The true story about the author Salvadore. Over these years he went through a process of dissociation and reintegration, which no doubt, led to insights he later used to create the Eos Kernel. Since I am interested in dissociation, this is an interesting blog for me.

6. Sociopath World. One of the most interesting blogs I have encountered so far. It is written by a sociopath, who is very intelligent but honest about it. She deserves respect for spreading information, because this will potentially help others. She has chosen to do good, in spite of her “disorder” and

7.brokenbutbeingrepaired. I simply love this blogger already. She writes about her private pain, which is in itself admirable, but she also writes good! I often sit with tears in my eyes after reading her story. Its brutal and honest.

the daily headache. I know she gets a lot of rewards, but she really deserves it, too. She knows so much, and I have learnt a lot about people, respecting their histories, and how important it is to keep on fighting, even when you feel half-dead. Thank you, Ashana. I hope you find true happiness whereever you go.

9.Random Acts of Kindness. The title sais it all. 

10 DBT Selfhelp. Lot of important information about self-help

11 nerd on the bridge. I like her sci-fi intelligence. Even if my brain can`t always keep up with her native english and language jokes, I still love her the same 🙂

12 About the Weird: This is really a funny and well-written blog. I love his style, his obvious underlying intelligence, and his ability to make the tragic a bit entertainable, so that the reader don`t feel completely overwhelmed and hopeless about the world. Thank you for sharing high-quality content, over and over again 😀

13.Gabriel Lucatero. I have worked together with this blogger, with sucess. He has written and published his own books, and I am really proud of him! Thank you for sharing !

14.A Bipolar Journey Through The Rabbit Hole. A lot of important information and quality posts here!

15. Crazy In The Coconut. I LOVE HER! She publishes so  many important and brilliant posts.  She suffers from DID and I wish I could take the pain away, but she fights like a pro, and she will continue that way for sure! Big hugs
