Very Inspiring Blogger Award


I would like to humbly thank fictionlimbo for nominating my blog for this lovely award. I’m truly honoured. The best part is I get to pass it along to 15 other bloggers – giving is so much more enjoyable than receiving ☺

The rules of this award are:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you and add a link to their blog.
  2. Display the award on your post.

  3. List the award rules so your nominees will know what to do.

  4. State 7 things about yourself.

  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.

  6. Contact your nominees to let them know you have nominated them. Provide a link to your post.

  7. Proudly display the award logo (or buttons) on your blog, whether on your side bar, ABOUT page, or a special page for awards.

Ooookay 7 things about me:

  1. I’m 42 years old.
  2. I love Corona, Single Malt Scotch and dark beer.
  3. Half of my right ear was bitten off by a horse and I’m deaf in the other.
  4. I’m Canadian hailing from the East Coast, Nova Scotia, presently living in Toronto.
  5. I love to laugh and cry even better both at the same time.
  6. I live with Bipolar II Disorder and I’m okay with that.
  7. My middle names are Beth Melinda.

Now for the fun part! I heartily nominate the following 15 blogs for continually inspiring me.

    Thank you, Julia for the Award. It was very much appreciated. Not quite sure how to repost it on my Blog, but I’ll figure it out. Even though I have just started Blogging here, the award means that I’m doing something right. I’ll keep on keeping on!
    Thanks to you!

      You’re most welcome Les, my pleasure and well deserved. Follow the directions above…make it easy for yourself – copy & paste questions to your post & the badge itself. Then if you want to display badge on your site, copy the image url then go to Widgets and select the image widget…paste the url there ☺ hope this is helpful & not redundant xo

    Hi Julia! I too wanted to nominate you for the Very Inspiring Blogger award but I procrastinated and missed you. In any case I wanted to let you know that you inspire me every day! I did still sneak in your blog into the post as a special mention 🙂 Here’s my post…

      Oh! I’m so pleased to know I brought sunshine into what was a very unpleasant way to end your week. So sorry about the loss of your job…my mom has always been in non-profit (amateur theatre) so I can relate. And yes! FINALLY the sun is out!!
