Inspiring Blogger

I’m grateful and humbled to announce that a blogger I follow has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blog Award. P. C. Zick (P.C. Zick in the Writing Life) is an author I met through Facebook, and she lives near my old hometown. She shares similar interests as me, and I enjoy reading her thoughts and following her work. I’m inspired by her efforts.

Here are the requirements for this award:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  3. State 7 things about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
  5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.

Seven things about myself

  1. I’ve never had a cavity.
  2. I can do a split.
  3. I am the only child in my family with brown hair and brown eyes (despite those being the dominant traits and being half Italian).
  4. I’ve seen lightning strike right in front of me three times.
  5. I’ve lived through a tornado passing through my town.
  6. I played four instruments in school, clarinet for the longest.
  7. I changed my major three times in college, but still managed to graduate in four years and with good enough grades to get a scholarship to grad school.

  4. Janna Hill
  5. InkWell
  6. My Perfect Pitch
  7. Jan Morrill
  8. Bottomline English
  9. Velda Brotherton
  10. Joy Keeney

    Stacy,
    How very nice of you to nominate Bottomline English for the Inspiring Blogger lineup. I’m afraid that I don’t keep up with it as I should. I have stacks of notes that I make every time I read the paper or watch the 5 o’clock news on Channel 5 (a GREAT source for strange usage), but I am not sufficiently disciplined to transfer them to the blog.

    Still, being noticed by someone is a great motivator. Thank you.

    Maeve

  2. No cavities is cool, but, holy cow, you can do a split? I couldn’t do that when I was three.

      Yeah, since grade school. I used to be able to do left leg, right leg, and down the middle. Now the down the middle is a bit out of my reach. I need to work on that. I should do more yoga, which I love, but never have time for. Can’t imagine why!

    Especially at my age! Must run in my family, though, because my sister is nine years older than me, and she’s never had a cavity either.
