Awards and Nominations

When I first started to blog on wordpress I did not really expect the amazing feedback that I received through readers’ comments, and likes to my posts. I have always written for myself, because I passionately love to write. It is just recently that I have begun to value my own innate beauty as I express it through my writing. Also it took me time to see my own voice as being important. Award nominations really do humble you when you are not used to receiving recognition for what you do.

Every blogger on wordpress each has an important and unique voice to share with the world. Many of you have been writing for much longer than I have, and are an inspiration to keep moving forward in all spheres of my life. The feedback I have received on here has me actually considering, for the first time in many years, to submit my work to other publishers for consideration.

Below you will find the following awards that I was nominated for. Thank you Ruben (cloudborne) at  for awarding me with The Versatile Blogger, Beautiful Blogger, and Thanks for Writing awards. My sincerest apologies for not acknowledging these much sooner. I also urge you to check out his writing on his blog as he is an excellent writer in his own right.

As per blogging tradition, I am required to share 7 interesting facts about myself. Here they are:

  1. My hobbies, aside from writing, include gardening, painting, baking, cooking, and scrapbooking. This summer I managed to grow roses for the first time in my garden. I can grow almost anything outside, but for some reason always kill houseplants.
  2. I was a substitute teacher for almost 7 years. During this time I taught from junior kindergarten all the way up to college level. Teaching brought me to England for over a year when I taught secondary school English, drama and religion.
  3. I share my home with 5 cats. Three out of the five cats have black fur and yellow eyes.
  4. I am thirty-two years old and currently working on sobriety.
  5. I am a huge fan of Marilyn Monroe, and love classic movies.
  6. I am a very spiritual person, and have studied or practised many religions from Christianity to Eastern spirituality.
  7. I was born and raised in a small town in Northern Ontario called Kirkland Lake that is famous for gold mining.
