Prudence McLeod kindly bestowed this award on me. Thank you Prudence! You really should check out her blog, she’s a prolific writer, a dog trainer and a Reiki Master-Teacher. Novan Witch is on my Kindle, next on my reading list, waiting for me to finish Atlantis.
The Versatile Blogger Award has a few requirements. You must thank and link back to the person who bestowed it. You must tell the world seven things about yourself, and you must pass it on. I went visiting some blogs that I have not been to before, or only a few times, and let me tell you, I have been missing out! So check out these talented writers:

Seven things about me…
I hate housework. Really. I’ll do it under duress, but otherwise, I’m content to have a few dust bunnies populate my corners. I am a lucky woman in that Hub shares my distaste equally, and when we do kick into cleaning mode he shares in the work.
I don’t mind washing dishes. I know, totally contradictory. Goes back to washing fish buckets on cold winter days. Warm water, just my thoughts, ahhh, a mini-meditation session.
I believe you can create your own reality. So many people poo-poo this. “I wished for a million bucks, and that never happened” is usually what their complaint is. Well, the universe isn’t going to just drop it in your lap because you wished for it once or twice. It takes dedication, it takes moving, working toward what you want, and holding that reality firmly in your thoughts; it takes passion. I am creating my reality as a best-selling author right now!
I love being surrounded by animals. I can’t imagine a life without at least one animal companion. Current count: A Belgian Sheepdog, 12 years, a yellow Labrador retriever, 5 years, one 16 year old cat and two 12 years old kitties, 4 chickens and 1 betta.
I’m not much of a girly-girl. Don’t get me wrong; I like getting dressed to kill, going out and looking good, but it’s not an every day thing for me. I can happily spend most days sans makeup and in casual, comfy clothes. Comes from being in profession that essentially dresses in pajamas.
I’ve killed my own animals for food. Chickens. And, yes, they were delicious! Going to do it again this year, too.
I dream of opening up a small farm. I spent so many years teaching people about animals and the environment, and I would love to do it again! Holding educational programs for city kids to learn where food comes from, animals and how we are connected to our environment. Adults too!
I love to bake. Just for the sheer pleasure of watching people’s faces light up when they taste real food made with love.
Congratulations to all Versatile Bloggers out there! More blogger love to pass around!
I am excited to check out that list! There are only a few blogs on there I already follow and I am always looking for new reading material! Congrats on the award. I think you should celebrate by not cleaning!
Excellent idea, Emma! 😉
Congrats on your award, Serena! The “facts about me” lists are always fun, yours included! The second item reminds me of an Agatha Christie quote: “The best time for planning a book is while you’re doing the dishes.” 😉
Agatha was SO right!
Congrats on the award. Well deserved. I LOVED the facts about yourself, especially the ‘create your own reality’. I agree! No way could I kill my own food. Thank goodness I don’t have to.
Thanks Ginger! And thank you for all the SOPA info, I’m in!
What a great list of bloggers. there are a few new ones for me, that i’m going to check out. congrats on your award and for passing it on.
How awesome that you were awarded for your blog! And I love your seven things about you. Isn’t it hard to write about yourself? But you did a great job on your post and congratulations to the other bloggers! 🙂
Congratulations to all the bloggers and thanks to everyone for stopping by!
