Here is the link to Holly Michael’s post: Another Award: The Versatile Blogger.
There’s a whole site dedicated to this award: Versatile Blogger Award (VBA)
What is it?
The VBA is a blogger award for quality blogs as deemed by the blogging community. Yep–you guessed it. It’s an award by bloggers for bloggers. And it’s an honor to receive this award that is spreading fast in the blogging community.
Thank you Holly Michael for the VBA nod. Since I was nominated by Holly Michael my site traffic and comments have gone up. No coincidence. It’s nice to know there are other bloggers out there who want to write and support each other.

Seven Things About Me
- I love purple, puppies, and dolphins. No surprise to anyone who knows me. :)
- The only foreign countries I’ve been to are Venezuela, Romania, and Mexico. All missions trips.
- In college I won Best Supporting Actress at the SPAM Awards. (Student Produced Amateur Movies.) Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure I LOST that DVD of me lip-syncing to Etta James and Alicia Keyes.
- My favorite sport is baseball, because I actually know what’s going on. Thanks Dad!
- I had a friend in high school who thought I was the spitting image of the Star Wars diva Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher. Everyone else, including me, thought my friend was crazy.
- On my officle wall is a smiley face pic, a shiny pink star, and a dry erase board sponsored by The Office that I write funny sayings on. It’s got a picture of the original gang and a slogan, “Petty behavior. Zero productivity. All in a day’s work.”
- I just got a Kindle last week. What took me so long to join the e-reading gang? I’m THAT cheap. :)
