Award for Most Versatile Blogs and 7 Random Facts About Me

A blogger friend of mine and fellow YA writer recently handed out blog awards.

I won her Versatile Blogger Award!
She handed these awards out to fellow bloggers who helped her out on the writer part of her life.  And I am going to pay it forward…
So I pass on The Versatile Blogger Award to:
I love your blogs. They provide a much needed escape and pick-me-up. They’ve gotten me through give-up-and-eat-a-pint-of-ice-cream-days. Thanks for keeping me company online. 🙂
Here are the rules for the award:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to five buddies whose blogs epitomize said theme.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.
Now onto seven random facts about myself:
  1.  I’m fluent in Mandarin Chinese
  2. Dolls freak me out
  3. I’ve always wanted a tattoo but never got one
  4. I’m addicted to bacon
  5. I can’t put down any Charlaine Harris novel
  6. Venice is my favorite city in Italy
  7. One of my most important writing mentors was my high school English teacher, Peter Herger

    Thank you for my blog award! Your post are always so amazing! I love reading of your travels and am looking forward to your next trip. your random things are short and sweet, and who knew that we had a common secret. (I too have always wanted a tattoo, but don’t have one, and won’t probably ever get one) Keep us posted and don’t ever give up!

    • You’re welcome! I’m so glad to hear you like my posts. This summer I’m going to Asia so there’s going to be lots of travel updates. I’ve flirted with the tattoo idea for 13 years. It’s my moment of rebellion left undone. I’m worried I’ll look back and be like what the hell was I thinking? So I keep thinking about it. 🙂

    Thanks so much for the blog award! 😉 Mandarin Chinese?? That always seemed impossible to me!! And I relate to the addiction to bacon and Venice being my favorite city in Italy. Everyone always talks about the smell there but when I went it didn’t bother me at all. It’s so beautiful and tranquil there. (At least when there aren’t a ton of tourists.) Thank you again!

    • You’re welcome! From amazing books to killer tv shows, I’ve discovered so much on your blog! Chinese required a ton of time and perseverance. Just making my mouth conform to sounds it never spoke before. LOL. The first year was rough going. Venice was simply stunning. The canals didn’t smell in February and we were greeted with fog swirling around us the first day. Loved it! Can’t imagine how it is during tourist high season. Glad i missed that.

    What kind of dolls. The ones whose eyes move ans watch your every move. Yikes.
    Congrats on your award. You are very talented. Someone needs to notice and real soon.

    • All dolls. But the more they look like people, the more they freak me out. Those will the eyes that move really scare me. Thanks! It’s wonderful to hear that someone likes what you’re doing when you do it everyday. 🙂 I’m really happy to get the award.

    Kourtney!! Thanks so much for the blog award! I’m so deeply honored that you thought of me. I didn’t check my email for my blog account all week (and I just sent you an email to explain what’s been going on.) I love your seven random facts- I learn something new about you with each post! Now I have to think of seven random facts about myself for my upcoming post….
