The Versatile Blogger Award (2019)

Many thanks to Sadje at Keep It Alive who has kindly nominated me for this.

The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

1. If you are nominated, Congratulations you have been awarded the Versatile blogger award!

2. Thank the person who gave you the award and include a link to their blog.

3. Select 10 -15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.

4. Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

5. Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Nominations for awards are always a stumbling block for me. There are so many excellent blogs in WP, many of which have already been nominated for this award, and well deservedly too.

However, I would still like to nominate the following (including a couple of duplications I’m aware of):

Keith’s Ramblings
Billy Mac @ Superman can’t find a phone booth (a recent one for me)
The lovely Reena
Sadje has also nominated Bereavedsingledad blog
Paula from Light Motifs II
Teresa aka The Haunted Wordsmith
Tom at Slumdog Soldier
Melanie of Sparks from a Combustible Mind who nominated Sadje
Butterfly sand
Dale @ future daze ( he does some awesome paintings)
and
Suze @ Suziland

I also include all of my regular readers, many of which are award free sites.

As for seven things about me:

I tend to post a lot (I hear you all cry “you think???”)

I still prefer writing and receiving letters via snail mail.

I had two poems published in a book called Poems for the Open Mind way back in the 1980s. Can’t find a record of it anywhere, and the copy I gave to my parents is probably long gone.

My favourite car was my 1988 Yugo 55A.

I hate having my photograph taken.

My first pet was a budgie called Whistler (slow worms and lizards don’t count).

I once dated a Hell’s Angel.

Once again, thanks to Sadje for nominating me.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
