Versatile Blogger

I had the high honor of being nominated today by: abichica at http://chicpress.wordpress.com/ This is great kindness to acknowledge that you have enjoyed my work.

The Rules

There are a few rules to acknowledge before I send this award on to others, so let’s get that out of the way first:

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs you enjoy reading.
4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Oh boy, I’m not much of one for contests or awards.

1. Despite my professional career, I am shy.

2. I would rather do photography.

3. My day job is pretty good though.

4. I am proud of my kids. They have turned out surprisingly fresh and resilient. Their adventures have inspired me.

5. I am proud of my wife. She has returned to complete an advanced degree. That’s pretty special.

6. I have had great loss and rediscovered family. This is especially appropriate at this time of year. (See Charles Dickens “A Christmas Carol.”

7. As I have always joked, I live in a time of change. How true it has been this year.

So, thanks to one and all who have read and enjoyed the pictures.

I realize that some of you whom I admire have already been nominated, but I ‘m compelled to single you out once again. In no particular order here are some folks to check out and acknowledge:

1. amyleestudios.wordpress.com, Amy Lee. She is the one who got me interested in blogging. She’s a wonderful photographer.

2. trailblazer1.wordpress.com. She’s highly entertaining. She works in mixed media. She had been one of the earliest bloggers to support my blog and keep me posting.

3. http://emilygoochphotos.wordpress.com/. Emily’s got great stuff.

4. http://gardenwalkgardentalk.com/about/. Donna – ditto. Great stuff.

5. http://marinachetner.com/. Marina has had some wonderful experiences and continues to report on her adventures. Great reading, good photography.

6.http://mpat75.wordpress.com/about/. Mahesh has some wonder posts. His photography from around the world has hit home for me that the internet has made us all so connected.

7. http://mimokhair.wordpress.com/. I have enjoyed Mimo’s posts immensely.

8. http://1001scribbles.wordpress.com/about/. Ana has given me a perspective from Portugal. What fun.

9. http://jantimmons.net/. Jan has some pretty wonderful stuff from Alaska.

10. http://derserotica.wordpress.com/. This is pretty amazing stuff. Defintely rated mature.

11. http://monsterforrent.wordpress.com/. It’s commercial. It’s funny. It’s unusual.

12. triciaannemitchell.wordpress.com. Tricia is having such a wonderful adventure. It’s been a pleasure to follow along.

I’m stopping at a dozen. Thanks again to all.

  1. Thanks for the call out, Victor. I enjoy receiving your posts daily by email.
    Particularly like this about your kids: “fresh and resilient. Their adventures have inspired me.” Good work! And of course you’re shy; you’re a photographer staying behind the camera, right?
    Thanks again, and congratulations. Well deserved.

  2. Thank you so much for the honor , Victor, truly. I know some of the blogs you have nominated and feel grateful to be included in this great bunch of blogs. I would have nominateded your blog too had I participated in the Versatile Blogger when I was selected recently by The Daily Graff. It is a fun look at life though pictures and captions. Unfortunately, I have been incredibly busy with my day job of architecture, in addition to working at the Farm I always blog about. So… I have to pass again on the nomination due to really limited time this holiday season. I will note and highlight your blog along with the nice honor in my next post though. Thanks again, it is very much appreciated.

  3. Dear Victor – Thank you for nominating my blog and for your kind words. That said, I always look out for your comments! Now, i am not too familiar with the Award apart from what you have shared with us in your post above. Do I need to formally submit anything with WordPress? Or, just follow your 4 rules and that’s it? Thank you again! Freshly pressed AND nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award AND nominated for a Reader Appreciation Award all in the one day of yesterday. I was definitely on cloud nine 🙂 PS> You are shy? I doubt that!

    • Well, you deserve the honor for all your wonderful adventures and the collected stories and photos in your posts. I’m not sure either. I just followed the rules as they were passed along.

      • Thanks Victor. Ok – I will follow your lead 🙂
