Many thanks to the ceaseless reader writes for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. It is an honor to be nominated by a fellow blogger whose work I enjoy. As per the award’s instructions I present the following:
List of bloggers you nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award:
1. Niall O’Donnell
Great blog on word origins. Lots of interesting etymology and history here. It is all written in a conversational, entertaining way.
2. LaRonda Moore
A mix of poetry, creative writing, and thoughtful essays.
3. Walt Walker
Engaging commentary on popular culture and politics and the place where they intersect.
Hosts a weekly writing prompt and adds her own insightful musings here and there.
5. Marilyn Armstrong
Called serendipity for a reason. A mix of political commentary, photography, and pondering: life, career, gender, etc.
7 things about myself:
1. I am a field technician for a major telecommunications company. I am one of only a handful of women who work in the field in my area.
2. I just had a short story published in the Centum Press anthology 100 Voices: Volume 3, available this week on amazon.com.
3. I grew up on Long Island, and still return often to visit family, enjoy the world’s best pizza and bagels, and go to the beach.
4. I was married for fifteen years to an NYPD detective, but am now divorced. I have my share of regrets, but getting divorced is not one of them. I am now in a much happier relationship.
5. I was raised very Catholic but have moved away from the church. It is a great source of inner conflict (good for my writing, I suppose).
6. I worked in a customer service call center for fifteen years. I do not miss it.
7. I consider myself a writer even though I am not as prolific as I might like.
I enjoy exploring wordpress although I don’t get nearly enough time to sift through all the stuff that’s out there to find more gems. If I do I may add to the list of recommended bloggers.
I hope you find a few new people to follow and have learned a little about one of your WordPress neighbors. Happy blogging!
