Thank you to Sharon for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award – I’m glad you are enjoying the posts. Sharon’s blog is called A Number of Things and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to nominate her straight back, as she includes all sorts of writing, photography, reading, reflections on current events and more.
I’ll have to apologise about the 15 blogs as I don’t really have time to read that many, and versatility is in the eye of the beholder. But here are some of my favourites (in the order I found them):
Wrong Hands – perpetually inventive cartoons
Middle Savagery – the inside line on being an archaeologist
TextHistory – Barb delves into the amazing details of her home city’s history
Astronomersden – practical and personal astronomy
Musings from a Stonehead – crofting is not for the faint-hearted
The Illustrator – her own character-full drawings and paintings
Lifelong Dewey – reading a book from every main category of the Dewey Decimal System
Lillabullero – literature and photography, music and football, and points of view
Because they’re there … – walking, climbing, curiosities, opinions
What they have in common is having their own individual voice and blogging purpose, a sense of humour, and an element of unpredictability, so when a notification email arrives, I instantly want to know what they’ve been up to now.
To the named bloggers: if this nomination makes any of you feel that you have just received a chain letter from a dodgy source, let me know and I will delete the reference from this post. But in any case, keep blogging chaps, you enliven the day.
Now then, I’m supposed to say seven things about me? These are about me as I write:
North: Old silver
North east: old books
South east: Latest seedlings
South: Solar filter with built-in health and safety system
South west: Hat
North west: Trees in mist
I did check the compass
Of course it came out eight, and one for the pivot in the middle, because seven points of the compass is just silly.
