Kreativ Blogger Award

29 May

With apologies to our subscribers, who, due to an error, received a premature version of this post, I present (finally) my post explaining the award which has been posted on our site for some two months now…

In the midst of a less-than-relaxing vacation, nursing a nasty cold, I got some news that put a badly needed smile on my face: a nomination for the Kreativ Blogger Award!  This award is a fun little do-hickey that means someone liked our little blog about creativity enough to shine a light on it.

The Kreativ Blogger Award is like a funky-cool grassroots award that is floating around the blogging community.  The deal is, when you are nominated (should you choose to accept), you:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link;

2. List seven interesting things about yourself;

3. Nominate seven other bloggers, provide links and let them know.

It’s like the best kind of chain letter ever.  As a rule, I don’t get involved in chain letters.  In fact, I’m living proof that you will NOT die within 10 days, lose all your money, have seven years of bad luck or go to hell by ignoring them. Okay, I guess I don’t know about that last one yet, but I digress…

Ahem.  On behalf of 4Chicks and a Muse, I’d like to accept this award and thank the Academy, err..I mean flujan at  myvoyagethroughtime.wordpress.com for the nomination.

Here are seven interesting (according to me) things about me:

1.  The sports category in Trivial Pursuit is one of my best.  This often trips up my opponents, because they don’t expect a girl to know anything about sports.

2. My perfect elementary school record was blown for “talking too much.” Yes, I like words. Lots of them.

3. Ironically,

the form of poetry I

like best is haiku.

4. The farthest I have ever traveled is to Australia.  I loved the people (!), but you wouldn’t believe how many of them, upon learning that I lived in Texas, asked if I rode a horse to school.

5. After a while, I started saying “yes”.

6. I used to be a cat person but now I’m a dog person.

7. The first serious writing I submitted to a prominent national writing contest won an honorable mention.  That made me feel I might actually have some talent.

Here are my seven nominations with a personal observation about each:

shanjeniah.com – Fun photo collages

livewritethrive.com – Great site for writers

andimjulie.blogspot.com – Smart, spunky gal with my kind of humor

familyhaikus.wordpress.com – Haiku.  Need I say more?

havebaggagewilltravel.com – Fun travel blog with gorgeous photography

thegrownupkids.wordpress.com – A Blogger in Paris (I love, love, love Paris)

decor8blog.com – To satisfy my design appreciation gene.

Check out these phenomenal blogs and find your own new ones as well.  There are so many wonderful, creative (or is it Kreativ?) people out there, and I’m so glad to be part of such a wonderful, worldwide community.

    Yeah, I know all about your expertise in the sports category. That’s why I never pick that one at the end for you!
