Nominated for The One Lovely Blog Award

The One Lovely Blog Award comes to me from Art by Rob Goldstein, a beautifully artistic blog that examines a great range of human struggles and emotions.

Thank you for the nomination! I nearly missed it, since it went to my spam folder and I only found it by chance. The lesson here is that bloggers should occasionally check their spam folders because they sometimes make mistakes.

The Rules:

  • Thank the person that nominated you and give a link to their blog
  • List the rules.
  • Display the award on your post of the award.
  • List seven facts about yourself.
  • Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know you have nominated them.

Seven Facts About Me:

I was raised around foreigners and travelled to several other countries during my childhood. I believe these experiences opened my perspective.

I’m both an Anglophile and a Francophile, resulting in more than a little cognitive dissonance.

I love detective stories and British murder mysteries. I’m fascinated by what motivates people to take drastic measures.

I’m a history buff who loves old buildings and antiques. Sometimes I fantasize about living somewhere like Downton Abbey, then I remember I’m a Social Democrat.

There are both born-again Christians and spell-casting witches in my family, so holiday get-togethers are “interesting.”

When I was a little girl, I reenacted the French Revolution and Salem Witch trials with my Barbies. I got really into it, making powdered wigs out of cotton balls and a Tinker Toy guillotine.

I won my first writing contest at age ten for a story I wrote from the perspective of a turkey whose wife was chosen for Thanksgiving dinner. All the other kids were making cute little cards, but I got carried away. Luckily, our teacher saw my dark side’s potential and entered the story on my behalf.

My Nominations:

I’m not going to use up the full fifteen slots, because some bloggers like participating in these things while others don’t.

  1. Wanted to thank you for the nomination, I’m one of those slack lazy unparticipating types, but I’m always touched when someone nominates me. Congratulations on your own nomination, it’s well deserved.

    I’ve only just started following you, but I love reading your posts. My daughter is now a wonderful teen (we can argue about what I mean when I say wonderful) so your stories about your younger children hit me with the nostalgic firehose.

    Thanks again!

    1. I understand–these awards don’t always got the style of one’s blog and they can be a little work. I’m happy you enjoy the nomination, though, since I love your blog too.

      Aww… I’m surprised by how many dad followers I have, actually. It makes me feel good that dads want to read about kids and love their kids so much. Dads make up the bulk of my followers, actually… I’ve considered writing a post about that.

      1. Right on! The DWB (Dad’s With Blogs) demographic is a highly valueable and sought out readership. (We’re totally not, we’re the worst, but let me have my illusion of worth…)

        Hey, hope you and yours have a great weekend!
