Whoop! I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. Admittedly I had never heard of it until I received the nomination from Natalie of What We Ate Today, but hey! Any appreciation of the blog, is, well, appreciated!
No, seriously. Although I could lie and tell you all that I write this purely for my own enjoyment, it wouldn’t be true. Of course I do enjoy it, but I also write this blog to a) promote good eateries and food producers, b) warn you all of bad eateries and food producers and c) provide a bit of an enjoyable read for my followers (that’s the aim, anyway). So to be nominated for an award is lovely and it tells me that I might be doing something right!
What’s it all about then? Well according to my nominee The Versatile Blogger award ‘is passed on through the blogging community. You get nominated, you receive the award and you pass it on to those who’s writing you enjoy and admire.
- You have to display the award with pride on your blog.
- You have to thank those who nominated you.
- You have to disclose seven random facts about yourself.
- You have to nominate fifteen blogs to pass the nomination on to.’
So here goes…
You have to display the award with pride on your blog.
You have to thank those who nominated you.
Thank you Natalie!
You have to disclose seven random facts about yourself.
1 I may be gobby, but stick me in a room full of strangers and you’ll find me cowering in the corner.
2 I always dreamt of being a writer when I was a teenager.
3 I grew up in a small town called Pontefract, but was actually born in Sheffield.
4 I was vegetarian for a year when I was a kid but got fed up of the TVP (textured-vegetable-protein) meals my mum made me.
5 I worked in Greggs, KFC and Morrisons as a student and considered a career in retail management.
6 My favourite colours are purple and green, although orange is doing it for me right now.
7 I hate trashy novels, films and reality TV but would be lost without Eastenders and Corrie.
You have to nominate fifteen blogs to pass the nomination on to.
I’m not sure what the criteria for nomination is to be honest, but I’ve decide to focus on those you might not already know about. Unsurprisingly the majority of them are about food and Sheffield/Leeds. Have a gander; they’re all worthy of this award!
