Versatile Blogger Award

As promised I’m slowly getting to the award nominations one more after this one.

Versatile means to be capable of or adapted for a variety of different uses, skills, etc. So using this guideline I chose my nominees.

A big shout out to Phil for this nomination, thanks for thinking of me and saying such nice things about my posts in general. If you don’t know Phil, check him out he is wonderfully talented.

I was also nominated for this award by Phyllis the Covert Novelist. I adore that blog name by the way! She is always a good read and means what she says. If you’ve never read her blog pop by and take a peek. It’s worth it.

Sherrie’s Always Write – Versatile is a word that you can use to describe her blog.

The idiot in tinfoil – I don’t even know how to express how fantastic this blog is. A must read!

InsidiousTemptation – Another fantastic blog name. Also NSFW her poetry and stories are fun and interesting.

Kurtis – Poetry, art, music, fitness, books and more. Kurtis is a talented blogger.

Kristina – If you want versatile she has it in spades.
