Versatile Blogger Award

By Patricia Zick @PCZick

This week my blog Writing Tips, Thoughts, and Whims was nominated twice for the Versatile Blogger award by two bloggers I greatly admire. Thank you, So Much To Write, So Little Time and 365 Things to Wrote About. If you don’t follow them already, visit their site. I think you’ll be as impressed as I am with their informative and inspiring blogs.

My other blog, Living Lightly Upon this Earth, has received several awards since I started it in March. However, this is the first award for my writing blog, and I’m delighted.

As a requirement for accepting this award, I’m supposed to provide seven random things about myself and tag 15 other blogs I admire. I hope you’ll visit the other sites. While I follow quite a few blogs, I’m going to stick to ones strictly about writing. We writers must stick together. I truly believe when one of us succeeds, we only move a step forward.

Random things about me:

  1. I begin most of my drafts on a legal pad with a very sharp pencil. I might only write a paragraph this way, but it’s the way I start all major works.
  2. I like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with a wedge of sharp cheddar cheese and a cold glass of milk for lunch.
  3. I suffer from directional dyslexia (my term). I have a tough time distinguishing left from right, front from back, etc. I have a letter I wrote to Santa when I was eight asking for my “two back teeth.”
  4. Numbers and I do not get along. We’ve been at war since junior high school.
  5. Words are my friends.
  6. I believe algebra should be outlawed because it just isn’t right to create formulas using letters, numbers, and punctuation as if it was a real sentence!
  7. I have a weird sense of humor. My best friends are the ones who laugh at anything I say even if they don’t understand what I mean.

  1. Congratulations on your award. It’s nice when you get validation for something you feel passionate about and work hard at. (And you aren’t the only one who feels that way about algebra equations!)


    • I’m glad – I didn’t want to anger all those math teachers out there, but just to be completely transparent, I come from a long line of math teachers. It just never caught with me! Thanks for stopping by.
