Kreativ Blogger Award and Words Etc.

I’m very excited to be the recipient of a Kreativ Blogger Award.  

As this is my first blogging award, I consider it an honor and a great step forward. 17 months of blogging has finally paid off.  People know I’m out here!!

Thanks so much to Pete Denton of Pete Denton – Writer for nominating me. Be sure to check out Pete’s blog.  He has lots of interesting and exciting ideas on his blog as he takes us through his adventures in  writing.  He also offers some great book reviews.

Being recognized as a Kreativ Blogger has opened up my exposure to new readers and followers.  I hope that those I nominate will embrace this opportunityand accept the challenge to share more about themselves as well as identify other blogs that they think stand out!

The guidelines for the award are

  • list six blogs that the recipient thinks are outstanding and deserving of the award

  • share ten things that your readers may not know know about you

I have had lots of fun exploring other blogs.  And here are my nominations!

  2. I love to garden
  3. I have three beautiful daughters and an amazing husband that are all the lifeblood of my life
  4. I took piano lessons for years (but don’t play very well now)
  5. I like to make veggie chili
  6. I like to dream up new ways to cook tofu
  7. In spite of 5 & 6 above, I am not a vegetarian (although one of my nominees is trying to convert me!)
  8. I created an amazing Hot Pepper relish in the summer of 2011 (peppers from my garden, of course!)
  9. I collect wine corks
  10. I am two classes and a thesis away from earning my Master’s in English/Tech Writing (No, it just won’t happen.)

And there you have it:  my 6 nominees and some little-known facts about this blogger.

Be sure to visit the blogs of my nominees.  Although all bloggers love traffic and new followers, it is the comments that keep us motivated to keep on plugging away.  So please leave comments when you visit.  Who knows, you could be the next nominee.

Thanks again to Pete and his great blog Pete Denton – Writer for nominating me as a Kreativ Blogger.   Please visit him!
