“English? Why are you majoring in that?” my stepfather asked me 20-something years ago.
“Because I’m going to be a blogger! Duh.” Now don’t write to me to point out blogs didn’t exist 20-something years ago because this is my imaginary response and the space-time continuum doesn’t apply.
I love blogging. I adore my readers. And I’m honored the hilarious blogger of Is Everyone an Idiot But Me? likes my blog well enough to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
In the spirit of the award, here are my nominees — blogs I enjoy reading and hope you will too. Please note: If you think bloggers recognizing each other is silly or pointless or beneath you, kindly do the needful and ignore my nomination.
Musings of a Dancing Wino — I know you were already nominated. You’re just that good. 🙂
Ramblings From an Apathetic Adult Baby
Ray Ferrer — Emotion on Canvas
The Top 10 of Anything and Everything
And here are seven random things about me in no particular order of importance:
My favorite artist is Gustav Klimt. I traveled to Vienna, Austria to see his work. I’ll never forget it.
I love butterflies. I love Chicago This is a butterfly in Chicago.
I have a master’s degree in journalism*. According to a website I won’t publicize by naming, it’s one of the world’s most useless degrees.
Seeing Machu Pichu in person is on my bucket list.
My favorite city in the world is Glasgow, Scotland. It’s home to incredibly nice people, Charles Renne Mackintosh’s architecture and amazing Indian food.
I love irises. They smell like SweeTarts.
I’m left-handed, which means I’m more likely to die in an industrial accident. If I mention my new job is operating a bulldozer and I suddenly stop blogging, assume the worst.
*This cat doesn’t really have a degree. But if he did I’m sure it would be in something practical like accounting.

Congratulations on your nomination!
Thank you Allen. I love your blog and just noticed I wasn’t following you — I fixed that. 🙂
Thank you so, so much for this award but I am afraid I have already been nominated for it and attached it to my website, but I still am very grateful for you choosing me and a little bit honoured to have it again so I will follow the rules and pass it on. I hope this is OK.
Absolutely! Keep those Top 10s coming!
Yay! Congrats & thanks for the nomination!! 🙂
And thank you for the Wonderful Team Membership award! I guess that makes us members of the mutual adoration society lol.
