I want to begin with a humble thank you to Pete Denton for the nomination… I think with so many nominations he should qualify for some kind of an award by now! I would also like to thank the Versatile Blog for creating and maintaining the award!

These are the rules of the award, as listed on the VBA Rules page:

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy. Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly, and nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award. Include a link!
  • Finally, say 7 things about yourself.

Seven Things About Me

1. If someone offered me $50,000 to write a book, I’d quit my job in a heartbeat.

2. I am a “mostly” self-taught, classically trained violinist; this year will mark 20 years playing.

3. I love to cook and bake, but I hate cleaning up afterward.

4. I aspire to greatness but usually only get halfway there.

5. I believe communication is the key to solving most problems. And yes, honesty counts.

6. I have always wanted to learn to sing and draw. I can do both but only very ill.

7. I believe humans can do anything we put our minds to. Look at how far we’ve come already!
