The Versatile Blogger Award


The laws by which we must abide:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share the award on your blog
  3. Share seven random facts about yourself
  4. Tag 10 bloggers with less than 1000 followers and let them know they have been nominated.

I was nominated by a very serious and sensible blog run by Pitchforkin’ and Rubber Superior called The Angry Farmer.  They have a lot of interesting articles about wheat prices, the weather and different uses for wool.

Or possibly I was nominated by the naughty but nice funny guys Pitchforkin’ and Rubber Superior at The Angry Farmer.  And their blog is a collection of hilarious and sometimes naughty stories and I am too young and innocent to know what uses they might have for wool.

Ah ha now you have to go and see which version is true.

Thank you so much to you guys at The Angry Farmer I can’t describe how honoured I am at being  noticed by you guys.


Award shared.

Seven random facts (good random is my forte)

  1. When I went to blogging class at KSP the instructor Annabel Smith thought the title I wanted to use was autistic sex, and that I was from New Zealand (accent thing).  I am going to have to do something about that as soon as either the husband or I remember anything about that subject.
  2. My grandmothers who were born on the same day were both called Doris and both married men called Alick/Alec.
  3. My grandparents, parents and my husband and I were each born 8 days apart from our spouse.
  4. I have worked (20 years ago) as my parent’s house cleaner, a pet sitter, a baby sitter (twice), a supermarket odd job person (one day) and a couple of years as a card reader and psychic medium.  No fakery at all, it may have been delusions and hallucinations as my psychologist at the time said but I never faked a thing; except in the baby sitting I faked a lack of hatred for children.
  5. I was born in Korumburra in Gippsland, Victoria, Australia.  Which is a small, tiny town.  But is very near to a place famous for Giant Earthworms.
  6. I skipped year 7 ostensibly to join a ‘Gifted & Talented’ class but I actually did it to avoid the year 7 teachers at my school because they terrified me.
  7. I met my husband (the year below me in school) in debating club and we started dating at debating camp (which was a lot wilder than it sounds think geeks gone wild) where we got past all the early awkwardness of dating through a series of dares.

OMG I had no idea how hard it would be to think of 7 ‘interesting’ things to say.

So now who to pick as my ten people:

Under 1000 (Auties- People with Autism are often obsessed with rules) followers.

Haven’t had this award that I know of.

I haven’t picked on them lately for anything else.


Oh good grief I appear to be the only person I know with under 1000 followers.  How is this a rule, my head hearts.  Okay I’m going to go with people who don’t show their follower numbers.


  1. Zurk Poetry       Poem a day, very funny.
  2. Musin with Susan        Photography, challenges, really interesting.
  3. Drawing Tonight      Most of this guy’s sketches are fantastic and he allows opinions.  I love telling people what I think.
  4. SEEDs for Autism   Why aren’t lots of people following this interesting blog?
  5. While There Is Life, There Is Hope  Puzzles and interesting things, love it.

I have just been through and fitting my criteria of less than 1000 or apparently little traffic for guesses, I haven’t given another award, and I have visited them enough that I feel I can really vouch for their website.  I have just checked a lot of my followers they all seem to have thousands of followers or tons of hits, I am a bit jealous and I have a headache and I can’t look at any more.   5 is the new 10.  No wait a minute:

If everyone I nominated will nominate 11 people I will have (kind of) finished my job.

And if they don’t it won’t be my fault, la la la I can’t see you!

I am now going to spread the good news, you may thank me for introducing you to 9 great websites by sending me spare pets.  Address will be supplied when I have made sure you aren’t sending a spider (I’m phobic but I couldn’t hurt a pet).

  2. Hey beautiful. Congratulations on your nomination ☺️ I’d just wanted you to know that I’ve also nominated you for this award, but you might not have had the chance to see it. You’re an amazing person and definitely deserve these nominations ☺️

  3. You are so sweet it is a pity your name starts with c, when I get behind I read from z up to a as my email scrolls up. I shall look tomorrow when I wake up I get too silly when I am sleepy and excited. Talk to you later. x


  4. You are not alone in the under 1,000 situation. I think I have 300 WordPress followers and 400 other followers which I think includes WordPress people.

    I am red-faced because I am working on your nomination of my blog for Sunshine Award piece meal. Please bear with me. Focusing after two deaths in the family in the last year, is next to impossible. Reading blogs has kept me reading, otherwise I listen to books.

    You gals are awesome!

    1. Thank you. Your first like caught my attention; Garfield, I was so excited and then my mother demanded I answer her pie question. How can I think about pie when I am looking at Garfield. Wait a minute did she say “Lemon meringue”, I’m sure you understand…
