Versatile Blogger Award Nomination?!

I am all sorts of shocked and all sorts of pleased to learn (and accept) the Versatile Blogger Award Nomination given me by the AWESOME blogger  It is such a shock and an honor because the Sho’ Nuff Sistuh’s Guide is my very first attempt at blogging and has been a challenge on many fronts.

The WordPress Blog titled Versatile Blogger instructions ( state:

“When you consider nominating a fellow blogger for the Versatile Blogger Award, consider the quality of the writing, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page. Or, of course, the quality of the photographs and the level of love displayed in the taking of them.

Honor those bloggers who bring something special to your life whether every day or only now and then.”

VBA Rules

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  • Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.  (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Thanking The Belmont Rooster:

    You may also enjoy River Water, a blog about life, love, and the transition from pastor to teacher of little troubled children.

    Congratulations on your honor. I don’t read many blogs, but I love yours.

  2. 1. On your nomination – Well, duh! Your blog is amazing, amiga! I’m not surprised at all. 🙂
    2. I am surprised you’re shy and had no idea you were fluent in Japanese. On good days I speak English. But on bad days I speak American. On really bad days I am incoherent in both.
    3. I hate how ephemeral cleaning is. I would rather horrify Martha Stewart than impress her. That way she would leave faster and I could put my pajamas back on.
    4. Happy Thanksgiving. We won’t celebrate til Saturday. 🙂

    You have such a wide variety of life experiences and somehow through all of the useful information about gardening you seem to be able to let these experiences shine through. Thank you! Keep on bloggin’!

  4. GREAT!!! I knew you would write an excellent post. Thanks for the great comment about my blog. Um… Did you just nominate me back?

  5. Kale Girl says:

    どうもありがとうございました, for everything, including the constant reinforcement when I battle creatures in my garden, not to mention the ability to discuss Ashikaga Japan and Colonial history at the drop of a dime. My Japanese is so rusty..whatever there was of it to begin with.. I find myself distracted, wanting to read those blogs:)

    • Sho'Nuff says:

      Wow! How did you do that in WordPress?! I’m so impressed! I very seldom use Japanese on the internet, it’s such a bother to fuss with. I shouldn’t be so lazy. I will have to answer using romaji:

      dou itashimashite!

      • cafecasey says:

        Embarrassingly, when I need to type in any non-romanji language, I go to Google Translate and copy/paste. It’s just quicker. I can type in Russian but that necessitates remembering the keyboard. Same with hiragana/katagana/kanji. I have the capability of doing this, but I forget so much and I was shady to begin with. In Chinese, I can read on a very limited basis, but can’t output unless I’m doing calligraphy… So, Google is my best friend on this. In many languages. I type quickly, proofread, edit a bit, and “BAM” a letter to a parent…

        Oooh, that’s devilishly clever!
