I love to hear about new books as much as the next person. And I’ve noticed that some of my readership is comprised of writers. And a simple fact of life is that some have more and others less readership than I do. Certainly it’s a given that we all have different readership.
I’ve heard of blog tours, guest bloggers, etc. And this isn’t so different as that; but a little bit, yes. Continue reading →
Versatile Blogger Award (Photo credit: It’s Great To Be Home)
Well, it would appear I’ve been nominated, by Jill of Barefoot Editing, for something called The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you, Jill!
I, honestly, have never heard of it before, though I’ve been looking into it now that it’s been brought to my attention.
Seems it works thusly:
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.
Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Well, let’s see, then. Thank you has been given (do people really have to be told this!? Oh … wait, internet … yes, they probably do … so sad). Link to their blog … again not just common curtesy, but common sense; check.
15 blogs to nominate? Oh. Well, let’s get to counting shall we?
Does anyone else ever see that bit advertising “Learn how to drive more engagement to your site” in their WP stats page and you start imagining lots of people suddenly coming to your blog to propose marriage?
How many of you will now I’ve said that?
Mwhahaha … hmmm evil genius laughs are fun. Noted.
update: how odd. I hit publish on this at 6:30 this morning and I just found it in pending status. I was woken feeling very ill. Still don’t feel well. Feel well enough to find this post a little odd, but it made me giggle to read and recall it, so I’ll retry getting it to post.
