My Nomination for Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

In Internet on March 11, 2013 at 8:58 am


Before yesterday, I had no idea this award existed. Then Beth Wangler honored me with a nomination and really knocked my socks off, so to speak – so thank you!

The rules of the award are as follows:

 I must provide a link and give thanks to the blogger who nominated me
 I must answer 10 questions
 I must nominate 10 other blogs that I enjoy reading
 I must provide links to said blogs and inform the authors that I am nominating them
 I must include the award logo in my post

For this award, I nominate:

A year of reading the world, the noble worker,
1) Interesting Literature
2) The Bully Pulpit
3) The Adam Lebovits Memorial Blog
4) Sam Reeves Blog
5) El Café Habla
6) A year of reading the world
7) Home Front Girl
8) The Noble Worker
9) The Secret Diary of a Call Centre
10) Homemade With Mess

Now, to answer the ten questions:

1) Your favorite color? Purple, with a good, deep orange nearby.
2) Your favorite animal? Horses.
3) Your favorite drink? Cold Pimms and hot Yorkshire tea.
4) Facebook or Twitter? Facebook.
5) Your favorite pattern? Henna.
6) Do you prefer getting or giving presents? There’s always a slightly selfish satisfaction in planning, making and giving the perfect present. But at the same time, I equally selfishly love being surprised.
7) Your favorite number? Three. For all those holy, spiritual reasons. But not in a crowd.
8) Favorite day of the week? Fridays, obviously.
9) Favorite flower? Good old tulips. The urchins of the flower world. Especially in orange. Actually, any orange flowers.
10) What is your passion? Words.
