Versatile Blogger Award


Versatile Blogger Award

Many thanks to Letizia, from reading interrupted, for nominating me for a Versatile Blogger Award! Her blog is a wonderful assortment of all things literary – from sharing her favorite poems to mulling over the phrase “dog eared.” I love it!

As part of having won this award, you are meant to pay it forward by highlighting 15 other bloggers who have intriguing/interesting/innovating/mind bending blogs. So, without further ado, here as some of my favorite bloggers (in random order) who deserve some recognition!

  1. Reading Interrupted – is it in bad taste to renominate? Oh well…
  2. Feel Happiness – a great blog that looks into what it means to be happy, and how best to achieve this elusive goal
  3. Jennifhsieh – a personal life and style blog
  4. The Professional Hobo – an amazing blog about how to travel for, well, life
  5. 1,000 Awesome Things – an old, big, blog about life’s amazing joys
  6. Mondo Musings – this is what I aim for BendedBrains to be like
  7. Marviiilous – beautiful pictures
  8. Music That’s Nu2Me – constantly updated music blog with tons of great finds
  9. Urban Bamboo – more wonderment and awesomeness
  10. The “Why?” Blog – lots of philosophical questions you’d never think to ask
  11. Philosophy Bro – philosophy made simple, eloquent, and entertaining
  12. Bros Like This Site – a breakdown of bro culture, by the numbers
  13. Poetic Parfait – wonderful poetry
  14. Completely Overrated – a great movie and media review blog
  15. Hyperbole And a Half – absolute hilarity. Always.

Apparently to accept this award, I also have to share seven intriguing facts about myself. Here goes nothing:

  1. I can speak Turkish conversationally, although I am always embarrassed. Hopefully I’ll overcome this when I move to Turkey in September.
  2. I have an irrational desire to be addicted to something. It seems nice to have to have a crutch.
  3. I’m actually finding this much harder than I anticipated.
  4. I’ve watched the original five seasons of Futurama way more than is good for me. I can quote the majority of every episode.
  5. Spiders terrify me, but I get a weird satisfaction from looking at pictures of them online.
  6. For some reason, Top 40 music always sounds really depressing to me.
  7. My childhood officially ended for me when I found my long lost collection of Star Wars action figures – deep in my basement, covered in grime and detritus – and I had to throw them all out.

    1. It was really surprisingly difficult, wasn’t it? Especially when you consider that blogs in general are about the authors generally anyway, haha.

Penny for your thoughts
