The Versatile Blogger Award


Thank you so much to Valerie R. Lawson over at for the Versatile Blogger award! Be sure to check out her blog.

Here are the rules for this one:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly that are excellent.
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award. (Fifteen? There’s just no way. I don’t follow enough blogs, yet. I’m working on it!)
3.Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.


1. These last three years have been the first years since I was in elementary school that I haven’t sung in any music groups.

2. I played the principal in a high school production of “Grease.”

3. I’m an only child.

4. I had my mother for a French teacher for two years in high school.

5. I love to memorize the names of my students, alphabetically by first name.

6. I fell off a fire engine in 1st grade. (My husband likes to say, “That explains A LOT.”)

7. My 6 year old just dedicated a book she wrote at school to Tyra Banks. Where did this child come from?



I only got to 10, and I bet if I spent lots of time checking, a bunch of them would have this award already. But here are some blogs that I follow and have been enjoying:

1. Slushpile Hell (

2. Shannon Messenger (

3.Cassie’s Reading, Writing, and Lovin’ It (

4.Krista Van Dolzer’s Mother. Write.  (Repeat) (

5. Angela Cothrans’  Live to Write…  Edit When Necessary (

6. Casey McCormick’s Literary Rambles (

7. Lisa and Laura Write (

8. Kate Messner’s blog (

9. Cupid’s Literary Connection (

10. R.C. Lewis’ Crossing the Helix (

Carry on, bloggers!

  1. well i know nothing about blogger, so i can’t answer THAT, but great job on your award, so glad i passed it along to you! i think it’s about time you got back into another singing group, don’t you? that’s quite a long run. (and nice job surviving the firetruck should use that in a story some day)
