Blog Award Catch-Up: Liebster Award and Versatile Blogger Award

Diana, over at Part Time Monster, played blog award catch-up this past week. That reminded me that I wanted to gather all my awards and put them on a page, a trophy  room if you will. When I was searching through my archives, I found this post that I started and never finished! How embarrassing! So, I’m finishing it up now.

BTW, I’m going to allow my ping-backs to work as my notifications. Also, if you are nominated and aren’t someone who does the blog award pass along thing, that’s totally cool with me. I enjoy your blog and want to share it with others. ALSO, a lot of these nominations were in this post when I first created it. If you were nominated for the Liebster and have now surpassed the 200th follower mark, sorry for the confusion and kudos to you!

Gene’O over at The Writing Catalog nominated me for the Liebster Award (::cough:: back in January ::cough::) and I’m just now getting around to accepting it. Thank you very much, Gene’O!

Diana at Part-Time Monster nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award (…in February) and thank you very much as well!
