The Versatile Blogger Award (Photo credit: nhighberg)
Tonight I’d like to take the time to express my appreciation to Christian at http://fivequickminutes.wordpress.com for recently naming me as a recipient of the Versatile Blogger Award. As a relatively new blogger, it’s a real honor to be recognized by others in the blogging community. My thanks to Christian and others who’ve encouraged me along the way! Futhermore, I just want to mention that Christian’s blog, Five Quick Minutes: Just Five Minutes On the Path for Learning, contains helpful and thought-provoking information covering various aspects of life. So, head on over and take a look soon!
According to the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award, recipients have the privilege of choosing 15 other bloggers with whom we can share this award. (As a new blogger, this will be a tough one for me but I’ll list blogs pertinent to work-life issues – in a big picture and little picture sense – that I follow with regularity). They are then to display the award on their site, name the website which awarded them with a link back to that blog (however, as I know many of these bloggers are busy professionals, I’m bending the rules here), and provide us all with 7 things about the owner/writer of the website (this latter part I’ll happily oblige).
Below are the sites I would like to recognize in no certain order:
Seven things about me, “Lynn Patra.”
A. My ethnic origin is Thai and I can gulp down a cup of fish sauce straight… no problem! Yes, I know this is gross by most standards!
B. Exhorting, “But everyone’s doing this!” is a sure-fire way to make me even more uncooperative and desire to “rock the boat.” Heheh…
C. It’s probably way easier to get to know me here as I’m often told that I am too quiet and a “hard nut to crack” during in-person interactions.
D. I’ve been compared to cats because I get the “elevenses” – in other words, I experience a burst of crazy energy as midnight approaches.
E. My favorite childhood snack was banana wrapped with a slice of cheese. People have thought this was pretty gross too.
F. I have a deep love and fascination for birds, and have been very interested in the subject of their purported close, ancestral kinship to reptiles.
G. I’m eccentric if you haven’t guessed already.
Thanks again to Christian at “fivequickminutes,” as well as to all my followers and visitors for contributing so much to my blogging experience.
