Versatile Blogger Award

I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure what to think when I received a Tweet that said I was awarded The Versatile Blogger by Snagglewordz. Is this a gimmick? Spam? Something off the wall? To my delight, it was none of the above! Instead, it’s a love-fest of blogs! It’s a way to share what you love with others, spreading the word and cheer of a variety of interesting writings. So, thank  you Snagglewordz for the award!

Of course, with any award, there’s rules to follow, but they’re simple, so no fear!

There, I did it. Whew! Of course, in naming the awards, I had to check out what they’re currently writing, so this blog post took me MUCH longer than I planned! But it was not time wasted, but time enjoyed. There are so many more that I would love to mention – maybe on another day. I hope you enjoy the blogs I’ve offered and awarded.

Happy reading!
