An Award


I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing anything with blog awards, but Lena Bitare at The Red Box blog recently nominated me for the WordPress Family Award–and I couldn’t resist. Thanks, Lena, for passing on the fun!

Here are the rules:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
  • Announce your win with a post. Link back to the person who nominated you as a β€˜thank you’ for the nomination.
  • Present 15 awards to 15 deserving bloggers.
  • Leave them a comment to let them know after you have linked them to a post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Here we go!

Seven (Possibly) Interesting Things About Me

  1. I like to drive, but I very rarely speed…mostly, I’d rather be late than speed.
  2. I like hosting baby showers.
  3. I have more than 252,000 miles on my vehicle. I hope it lasts a little longer…
  4. I seem to be collecting turtle figurines, without meaning to.
  5. In college, I almost switched my major to geology because I liked my entry level class so much. I still like geology enough that a variety of stones seem to make their way into my writings. Also, I like it enough to subscribe to a geology blog.
  6. I like discovery writing better than outlining books before I write them. I only recently discovered this about myself.
  7. I really like instrumental music. I don’t know why.

  2. Congratulations, Gwen! Well deserved inded.


  3. Haha, I love the bit about turtle figurines. I bought this awesome turtle bead years ago: it’s silver with a blue stone in its back and on the bottom it’s engraved and says: “Rub me, I’m lucky.” It’s been a good luck charm for years πŸ™‚

    Also– geology! That’s awesome!


  4. Congrats!

    I was wondering if you’d be interested on being a contributor on The Community Storyboard. It’s a blog that Ionia Martin of Readfulthings has put together and we’re trying to gather WordPress authors to contribute. It’s no time schedule or major responsibility. You just post when you have the urge or we post a weekly prompt that you like. We’re hoping to create a blog with a tight knit community of artists that support each other and simply have fun. Let me know if you’d be interested in being a contributor.
