I’ve been sharing my thoughts and photos on CurTales for about 18 months, but I was surprised (and delighted) when a fellow blogger recently nominated my blog for the Versatile Blogger Award! A big thank-you to A Year With Horses! Be sure to visit her blog and enjoy the photos of her horses.
There are a couple of “rules” each nominee is supposed to follow:
1.) Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog. (See above)
2.) Nominate fifteen of your favorite blogs and post a link to them. (See below)
3.) Tell the person who nominated you seven things about yourself. (Well, posting them here is telling all my readers, but there you have it!)
So without further adieu, here are my pay it forward choices: (In no particular order of preference)
1.) Horses/Equestrian /AnnaBlakeBlog A wealth of equine information and wisdom.
2.) Portraits of Wildflowers Stunning pictures with educational dialogue.
3.) HDR Shooter If you like HDR this blog will inspire you.
4.) Some Species Eat Their Young A hilarious account of life with four young children.
5.) Meanwhile, Back At The Ranch Nice photos, good poetry, great musical talent.
6.) Painted Meadows A lovely photo blog and fellow equine lover.
7.) Wayne Frost’s Photo Blog A wonderful HDR devotee who kindly shares his knowledge.
8.) JM Randolph, Acciddentalstepmom A hysterically funny blog about leaping off a cliff into parenthood.
9.) Exile Imaging This blogger shoots skyline HDR to die for … and other great stuff too!
10.) The Horsemaster Opinionated, bright, honest, experienced. This equine blogger isn’t afraid to speak her mind!
11.) One Writer’s Life A treasure trove of flash fiction, short stories and poetry. He’s also my brother. 🙂
12.) Cavaliere Attitude A lovely equine blog with a French twist!
13.) Horsesense00 Another informative blog for horse lovers of all types.
14.) Dan Jurak’s Alberta Landscape Photo Blog Keepin’ it real in Alberta. Stunning photos, candid commentary.
15.) The password is swordfish A movie review blog … and then some.
OK, now on to the seven fun facts about myself:
1.) I was a competitive bodybuilder in the early to mid-80s. I still lift weights. (Thirty years straight and counting)
2.) I wanted to be Daniel Boone when I grew up.
3.) I’m afraid of thunder and lightening, creepy movies and the dark.
4.) I couldn’t read well until 5th grade and I still use my fingers to count.
5.) I consider eating and shopping a complete waste of time.
6.) I have early-onset macular issues with my eyes. (Which makes picture-taking a huge challenge!)
7.) I like animals more than I like most people.
