Versatile Blogger Award

I was so generously given the Versatile Blogger Award from Suerae Cobbs Stein, The Artful Blogger. 
Thank you so much Suerae, it means a lot to me!

Suerae, owner and designer of Red Barn Artworks and The Artful Blogger, amazes me with her photographs.  She takes everyday ordinary items, and turns them into works of art.  Her passion for art and nature allows her to turn her fab photos into notecards and other
unique specialty items, such as porcelain ornaments, ceramic coasters and trivets, necklaces, sun catchers, counter savers, baskets, coat racks, and keyholders.
She even incorporated animal images into an interactive children's book Look Into My Eye  
As a writer and mother, I love the book.  Please check it out!

Now… to the Versatile Blogger Award!
As a recipient, I am asked to choose 15 of my recently discovered blogs to pass the award along to, and I must follow some rules. Therefore, if you receive this award from me and you choose to accept it, these rules are for you too…
1. Thank the person who awarded it to you, by linking back to them in your post.
2. Share 7 things about yourself in your blog post.
3. Pass this award along to 15 recently discovered blogs (contact the owners to let them know too!)

Here are my favorite recently found blogs in no particular order:
  1. Karmic Kappuccino by Steve Rice
  2. Joy Filled Days by Sarah Beals
  3. Stories Al a Mode by Barbara Bockman
  4. The Brain Fart Explosion by J. Aday Kennedy
  5. Grow with Stacy by Stacy Claflin
  6. 100 Smile Challenge Blog by Jodi Rosenberg
  7. Scouter Mom by a dedicated scouter mom
  8. Musings from a Stay at Home Mom by Erika Bragdon
  9. My Name is Not Bob by Robert Lee Brewer
  10. The Positivity Blog by Henrik Edberg

  13. Dani McGrath. The Mompreneur by Dani McGrath
  14. Prowling Books in the Lair by Shana Johnson
  15. The Writing World by RaeBeth McGee
Now the 7 thrilling, exciting and jaw-dropping things about me (well maybe not that exciting)
  1. I am a published freelance writer.  My first article was to GRIT magazine.
  2. I work full time at a local hospital in NH as an MRI Technologist.  I have been in Diagnostic Imaging for 19 years!
  3. I have an 8 year-old smart, handsome, creative and active son.  He is the light of my life.  He is my inspiration and now critique of many of my stories.
  4. My husband and I met at a hospital in Florida.  I was his boss then, he says I am still his boss now.
  5. We live on 7.5 acres full of animals.  We have 2 dogs, 3 cats, 2 crested geckos, 2 red-eyed skinks, 2 red-eared slider turtles, 24 chickens and 20 guinea hens.  
  6. In our spare time, we own and operate Camp Wags Pet Resort, where your dog can be a dog in the comfort of our home.  Sometimes, we have 7 dogs to feed at once.  Talk about a feeding frenzy!
  7. I love watching animated movies with my son.  Rio is our new favorite.  Actually, I love reading chapter books with my son.  We are reading "Secrets of Droon", "Magic Treehouse,"   and just finished a family favorite, "Justin Case."  Sometimes I read the book by myself after my son goes to bed to find out what happens next.  Shhh, don't tell him.
I hope all the blogs above choose to accept the Versatile Blogger Award.  It was fun for me.  I was so hard picking just 15 blogs that I like.  I tried to pick a few of each type of blog I read.
Thanks again, Suerae!

Thanks for reading!

Ann,I visited and followed your blog as well. Happy Blogging!

Suerae Stein said...

Wow Pam! This award is perfect for you! I didn't know you live in NH - I live in NH too - outside of Keene. Your animal farm sounds heavenly and your life seems so diverse! I miss books like "Magic Treehouse" and "Secrets of Droon," now that my kids are older. It is wonderful to learn a little more about you and you did a terrific job accepting this award. I'm excited to check out some of your favorite blogs! Thank you for your kind words about my work. So glad you enjoyed the Versatile Blogger Award! :) ~ Suerae

Awesome Ms. Pam, And to your resume you should note that you administrate a writers group for the New Durham Public Library in New Durham, NH. How do you find time to do it all? But then you've heard the expression, "If you want something done, ask a busy person!" A point you prove well. Congratulations on your well deserved recognition. Joanie

Harleena Singh said...

Thanks once again :)

Pam said...

Thanks again Suerae! I have found a few bloggers, just this week, who also live in NH. It's a small world!

Joanie, I almost put the writers group in my list of 7...keeping busy keeps me out of trouble.

Harleena, You are very welcome. I hope you pass it on:)

Mary, thanks for visiting and following me.

Happy Blogging everyone!

Michelle Shaeffer said...

Thank you, Pam! You've given Daily Blogging Ideas it's very first award. :)

Your place sounds like a paradise for any animal lover. We've got two cats and a tortoise but if they could get away with it my children would love to expand our collection.
