The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award

Simply Katricia has been nominated for the versatile award four times in the year of blogging.  I’d like to thank Sunny, Latisha, Heather and Deandra for their nominations.  Since returning to blogging, I have had a back and forth internal argument about what to write about and how to present myself online to gain a following.  Knowing that there are people out there that actually read what I have to say, let alone colleagues amongst social media, who want to recognize me for something I may consider a fun hobby.

“When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.” Versatile Blogger Awards
