Kreativ Blogger award!

Posted in Awards on October 3, 2009 by aedd


When I woke up this morning, I rolled over, texted my husband, and grabbed my laptop and started going through my routine websites (blogs, web comics, email…) Well, I checked my email and saw I had a comment here (and since it was my second one, it was exciting!), I came here and read it, turns out: Kaleanani from Alpine Sanctum has chosen me to receive the Kreativ Blogger award!

This totally made day, considering the most views I’ve had in one day since starting this blog was 10, and most days it’s between 0 and 2. I had simply written if off as no one was really interested in what I had to say. This has inspired me to continue writing here, and write more frequently when possible. Kaleanani’s words were the real inspiration, and truly touched me. As such, I’d like to share (you can also see it at her blog):

The person in question would be the author of A Sailor’s Heart. I have a special interest in Pagans involved in the services, so that was an automatic draw to her blog. She is also a newlywed who doesn’t get to see her new husband all too much because of their military commitments, so that’s another draw – I remember my own husband’s deployment separations so I feel for her. Finally, she just has a friendly style with interesting links. The other day she posted a link to a website which shows photos before and after they were Photoshopped; I totally got stuck on that site!

So now its my turn to pass the award along. I’d like to nominate Out of the Blue.  I love craft blogs because I love seeing people’s creativity. I also love blogs with pictures, I can’t help it!  Anyway, Out of the Blue has a beautiful layout, and the pics in her posts just draw me in!

I’d like to thank Kaleanani for giving this award to me, and like her and the one who awarded her, I only selected on blogger. It was hard enough to pic one!!

So here are the rules for this award (and yes, I broke them lol):

1. Thank the person who gave this to you
2. Copy the logo and place it in your blog
3. Link the person who nominated you
4. Name 7 things about yourself that no one would really know
5. Nominate seven ‘Kreativ Bloggers’
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them

And the 7 things about me:

  1. I’m a total nerd, every time I see something made our of electrical or computer components, I want to buy it.
  2. I love D&D.
  3. I’ve always had self esteem issues, even as a small child. When I was in second grade, I wrote a story about the ugliest girl in the world and everybody hated her, even her mother… 3 guesses who that was about lol
  4. I love being crafty and creative, but I’m horrible at actually creating things.
  5. I’ve started writing 3 or 4 books (so far). Key word: Started.
  6. I’ve always wanted to be a published writer. I’ve never cared about what I wrote though.
  7. I’m addicted to the internet, even when I have nothing to do, I still feel the need to be online.
