The 7 X 7 Award!

Standard

7 x 7

Jamie over at sorealtonight  and Scriptor Obscura have been kind enough to award me the 7×7 Award.  I’m truly honored to be one of their seven links, and I hope every one of you will visit their blogs and read their work.  Between the pictures and words at each it will be well-worth the trip, I promise!  I am so very blessed to have met so many great writers here at WordPress!  That they think anything of me is so very cool  (and my readers are so very cool).

This award, well, I tried following the links backward to find out why it gets awarded, but was unable to determine anything.  So I will accept in the spirit of blogging everywhere and nominate 7 of my subscribers in the hopes that more people will find their blogs too!

Rules to this award:

1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
2. Tell something about yourself that no one else knows.
3. Link to seven of your entries: Most Beautiful Piece, Most Helpful, Most Popular, Most Controversial, Most Surprisingly Successful, Most Underrated, and Most Pride Worthy.
4. Nominate seven other bloggers and notify them.

Okay, #1 -check!   Thank you again Jamie and Scriptor!

#2 –  Hmmm.  Something about myself that no one else knows.  What do I say here…my hair is brown with a shock of white right up in front?  It is, but that’s not likely what you want.  I’m as big as the side of a house?  Also true, but now we’re bordering on TMI.  I’ve got it, I love rock ‘n roll tunes from around the 80’s.  Cheaptrick, Tina Turner, I love to blast music when I’m alone in the house.  Pink Floyd, Meatloaf, Queen and Bowie make housework go a lot faster.  I can’t play them when I’m writing though, I keep stopping and singing along!  I had a pop thing going too, I love some music each of Phil Collins, Berlin, Roxette, Carly Simon and Debbie Harry, Alan Parsons Project.  Getting back into rock, hehe.  Heart was my all-time favorite.  There.  I snuck in one more, lol.  The list is so much longer than these.

#3 –

Most Beautiful Piece – The Cottage – is one of my favorites.  I couldn’t wait to write, from the moment I read the three words.

Most Helpful – I hope that Going to the Chapel will inspire all of us to take a fresh, intolerant look at spousal abuse, mental and physical, because the entire family suffers.

Most Popular – I think the most popular so far has actually been the “About” page.  I’ve had more comments on it than any single post I’ve made. 

Most Controversial  – Maybe If Only I, a Christian storyNot one person has ever really disagreed or let me know that they found fault with any of my subjects. 

Most Surprisingly Successful – The Leave it in Beaver Story.   I really can’t explain this one. 

Most Underrated –  You Are More, written for a dear friend facing a milestone with uncertainty. 

Most Pride-WorthyJust Rewards, because I worked so very hard on it!

#4 – Nominate 7 other worthy blogs.  Now I’m going to pick 7 blogs from among my subscribers, and I’m not going to pick anyone I’ve already nominated for the Versatile or Leibster Awards.  Here we go, and in any order:

1) Tooty Nolan

2) Autism Dad

3) C’est La Vie

4) The Confused Graduate

5) Wordsfromthemoon

6) Diabetic Redemption

7) Spell/Sword

Please be sure to stop by and check out these people’s hard work!

Happy Writing!

  1. Comgrats to all the winners! I’ll be visiting as well 🙂

    Thank you, I think that’s the point of awards like these, some look at them as blogging chain letters and I suppose that is true – but it’s also a good way for deserving people to get some traffic to their blogs. I’m certainly grateful, call it what you like!

  4. Good work! It’s always fun to learn more about fellow bloggers, too…that’s my favorite part of awards.

    Thank you so much. I’m curious, how did you come upon the idea of doing your writing prompts? I’ve done two now, and it’s fun!

  6. Congrats on the award….and your taste of music 🙂 I like most of the artists that you mentioned. Now I can’t seem to get Roxette’s song, You Got The Look out of my head…

    Na na na na na na she’s got the look! Only way to get it out of your head is to sing it all the way through. 🙂 It actually works, hehe 🙂
