Last week my friend Irene McHugh sent me a message telling me she had included me in her recent post and linked to my blog. A bit cryptic of a message so of course, I was curious. It’s not totally uncommon to link to each other in a blog post but imagine my surprise when I discovered that Irene had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!
About Irene And Her Blog:
Irene is an amazing person, pet lover, and blogger. She writes McSquare Doodles. Please see her nomination post where she has also linked other amazing bloggers you will love.
You will also love Irene’s blog. She is the winner of the BlogPaws 2018 Nose To Nose Award for Best New Pet Blogger and that title is well deserved!
If you are thinking about getting your dog certified as a therapy dog and want the best life possible for your pup, McSquare Doodles is for you! Irene has a passion for sharing unconditional love through therapy dogs with those who need it most.
You will also adore her pups Bernie and Lizzie McSquare. Both adopted furbabies who have made Irene’s house a home.
I love following Bernie and Lizzie’s adventures with their furmom and seeing how they each progress on their training journies. Lizzie truly is an inspiration for all pet owners striving to certify their pups as therapy pets or any animal lover who enjoys learning more about raising healthy happy pups.
So what exactly is the Versatile Blogger Award?
The Versatile Blogger Award is a peer to peer award.
One blogger nominates another.
Nominations should be decided upon the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Also to be considered are the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.
The Versatile Blogger Award is a way to honor fellow bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.
I am honored to have been nominated not only be an amazing person but a friend and someone whose blog is so impressive itself!
Once Nominated One Must Accept Their Award By…
Thanking and linking back to the blogger who nominated them.
Selecting 15 other bloggers to nominate.
Telling 7 Things About Yourself.
Since being nominated is such an honor one does want to be selective in who they nominate.
And we get a beautiful badge to display on our site!
Note To Nominees:
Nominees do not have to accept their awards.
Sometimes a blogger may pass up this award if they have previously been nominated and participated.
This is perfectly fine and understandable.
It is up to each blogger if they wish to participate.
Irene has made this task a bit difficult for me since she has already nominated so many exemplary bloggers.
Check them all out in her post.
Yeah, I did 17 – sorry not sorry – there were just too many great blogs I could have gone on forever!
7 Things About Me:
I have an affinity for trains. So much so that I fall asleep to a live train cam from Norway every night.
Bridges freak me out! In addition to having a fear of heights bridges are the worst! I literally can have a panic attack going over especially high bridges.
No stranger to the dramatics, I have been in several live theatrical performances and have been in small films.
My most recent sci-fi love is Legion. It’s a total mind trip!
Merlot is my favorite type of wine with Chardonnay being a close second.
I respect all living beings and can’t even kill an ant, spider, or fly.
Horses used to be a major part of my life and I would love to have one again someday.
Once again, a huge thank you to Irene McHugh of McSquare Doodles for my nomination and award.
Please check out her blog and the others I have nominated.
Each of them offers such wonderful articles on various topics.
I am sure you will all find a new blog you absolutely adore!
