The Versatile Blogger Awards

Happy Friday everyone!  I was nominated for a Versatile Blogger Award yesterday by Kate from Me, MyBooks and I.  I am going to apologise in advance, as having spent over an hour trying to figure out how to get your links to display on my blog and failing miserably, I'd rather just send you the award, even with the long link, as otherwise I might have to go and jump off a skyscraper!

The HTML has defeated me!

Anyway, here first of all is the Versatile Blogger Award -

Thanks go first of all to Kate from MeMyBooksandI - for giving me the award. Me, My Books and I is a great book review site for contemporary and chick-lit books mainly and one of my favourites.

The rules of this award are:
Thank the person who gave you this award, and include a link to their blog.
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. If it’s a bit of a task to list 15, and I don’t want you to feel being nominated is a burden, but mention as many as you can – 8 or 10 is fine. List them, and you might like to include a link to the sites, and let them know that you’ve nominated them.
And tell the person who nominated you seven things about yourself

Ok, 7 things about me
1) I speak 5 languages and keep trying to learn new ones, but have never gotten to grips with German
2) I love elephants, pandas, sea horses and beluga whales
3) I have a major crush on Rupert Penry Jones - only discovered in the past 2 weeks! I have a lot of Spooks and Persuasion to catch up on.
4) I have visited 45 countries at last count
5) The first record I have ever bought was The Smurf Song
6) I ran with the Queens Relay Baton for the Commonwealth Games (kinda like the Olympic Torch) , when I was a teenage athlete
7) I am really clumsy and am constantly covered in little bruises and say 'Ow!' a lot

I would like to pass this award on to the following people, whose blogs I read as regularly as I can

 Dizzy C's Little Book Blog -
Me, My Books and I -
Terry Tyler (author) -
Seumas Gallacher (author)
Rachel Abbott (author) -
Ashley Barron (author) -
Paul Dorset (author) -
Joanne Phillips (author)
Rebecca Scarberry (writer) -
Edward G Gordon at Gamblers Game -
Tracie Banister at Books by Banister -
Jeras Jamboree -

I'm sure I will have missed some people out, but my brain is now mush from all the attempted HTML nonsense.
Well done on great blogs and hope you have an excellent weekend - sun is coming out in Glasgow! Sooz
PS for those of you who are not technically minded, use the long links - don't fight with the HTML. You will be fizzing mad by the end of it!


  1. Thank u very much for the award.
    Will add to the blog soon.

    Have a great weekend

  2. Thanks for that, most kind of you - I've been in someone else's list for one of these things (it wasn't the Versatile Blogger, can't remember what it was) and I haven't got round to doing it yet, either.... so I won't promise I will do it because I probably won't - I haven't got a clue how to do any of that HTML stuff you're talking about - but thank you, anyway! Especially as my blog isn't 'all that' !

    It is just to spread the word about good blogs around? I read a few of these, anyway. Is it sort of like a chain letter thing? Not sure if I actually 'get it' (you know the premature senile dementure is kicking in!) xxx
