Kreativ Blogger Award

The Kreativ Blogger Award was the first blogging award that I really noticed, and everytime I saw someone being nominated for it, or nominating someone for it, I wondered if a time would come when the award would be passed on to me.

And when Gutsy Writer, Sonia Marsh, passed the Award on to me, guess what I did? I got so excited about receiving the Award, I totally forgot about passing it on. It has been over a month since I got the Award, but when it comes to passing on things, better late than never.

The instructions passed on to me by Sonia are -

1) Thank the person who sent the award. [Thanks so much Sonia. This was the Award I always dreamt of winning- almost the equivalent of the Oscars or a Grammy for me. It would mean a lot coming from anyone, it means much more coming from you].
Copy the award to the blog and link to their blog.

2) List seven things people don't know about me:

a) When I was young, of the many things I wanted to be, one was being an astronaut and going to Mars. The adventures I had on Mars would fill a couple of books, if I can remember them.

b) Seeing me go all dippy eyed around babies and young kids, you would perhaps not believe that I first touched a baby at the grand old age of 32 - my own!

c) I grew up in a tiny mining colony where I followed by geologist father everywhere. I've climbed hills and waded across streams into which uranimum wastes had been pumped. Then, a few months before my 12th birthday, I became a city slicker, and have remained on ever since.

d) Every couple of months, I used to go off any food that had the ability to fly, run or swim. I've now accepted the fact that it is unlikely that I will be able to turn vegetarian on a permanent basis, so have stopped trying.

e) I am equally bad with faces and with names. But once I have placed a person, I will often remember random bits of trivia about them.

f) When I dance, I don't have two left feet (or even two right ones)- what I have are one left foot and one right foot. They just happen to be screwed on backwards.

g) Verbal history can trace my family back for generations- right down to the time when my ancestors were swinging on trees.

3) Nominate seven bloggers for the award, link to their blogs, and leave comment to let them know of their award (now, this is the most difficult bit, because so many of the blogs I follow are brilliantly Creative, it is near impossible to narrow it down to just seven.)

A. Ann, All Write with Coffee
B. Diane, Spunk on a Stick
C. Elizabeth, Mystery Writing is Murder
D. Elspeth, It's a Mystery
E. Hart, Confessions of a Watery Tart
F. Margot, Confessions of a Mystery Novelist
G. Patricia Stoltey

I am sure the Kreativ Blogger Award has already been passed on to each of you. You can have it one more time with all my love.

Thank you, again, Sonia for passing this Award on to me.

See you later, folks!

Thanks for the award, Rayna! And for telling us more about you. You and I share the same dancing skills...

Mystery Writing is Murder

Had to laugh at f)!!

Margot Kinberg said...

Rayna - Thank you so much for this award - how very kind of you! I'm truly honored that you included Confessions..... I enjoyed learning more about you, too. I think it's utterly fascinating that you have (and have remembered) the verbal history of your family. That must take such a good memory.

Watery Tart said...

Oh, Natasha! Thank you so much! I feel honored! I really need to do an awards day... maybe tomorrow... And I need to check out the blogs I haven't!

Thank you for my kick in the butt!!! (and for the award!)

Ann Elle Altman said...

Thank you, I will be sure to mention your blog today.


Patricia Stoltey said...

Congratulations on receiving the award, Rayna. It was so sweet of you to include me in your list. This is a fun award because it makes us dig a little deeper to reveal more about ourselves. I already feel as if I know you. When you added the facts about dancing and forgetting names, I knew we had a lot in common. Thanks again.

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

Congratulations on your award. It's fun learning more about you. I'm looking forward to checking out the blogs you mentioned that I'm not familiar with.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Thank you! Sorry, I've been on the road a bit this week and not in the bloggy world as much as usual. No, I don't have this award! I will pass it along this Friday in my roundup post.

And thanks for de-lurking! LOL

Rayna M. Iyer said...

@ Elizabeth - we do have a lot in common, don't we?

@ Fiona - it took me a long time to figure out what was wrong with my dancing skills. Now I know :-)

@ Margot - every post of yours tells me so much about a genere I thought I knew backwards. Thank you.

@ Tami - most welcome, my Thursday Twin. And looking forward to your Award Day - you always introduce me to the most fascinating blogs.

@ Ann - thank you. I saw you already did.

@ Patricia - it fun, isn't it? And I am so glad I am not alone in the not remembering names OR faces department.

@ Jane - how did I miss out your name - I definitely intended passing this along to you. I need to create a new Award just for you to make up for the lapse.

@ Diane - I would have thought you would have got the award a couple of times already. Richly deserved.
