Many thanks to the Little Snow Flake at Anniewhere She Goes for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. If you have not visited her blog, you should. She has a fun blog that touches on lots of different topics. A very interesting thing about her is in spite of her name of the Little Snow Flake she has never actually seen snow although she is totally enamored of it. I would love to be able to see her reaction when she gets to see snow for the first time.
I proudly accept the nomination because it is an excellent way to extend the blogging community and get additional traffic for my blog and for other blogs.
Update February 1, 2015: I received another nomination for this award from the wonderful Clare of My Creative Cosmos. Her blog has wonderful poetry, short stories, photos.
