The Versatile Blogger Award

Many weeks ago I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by my friend Bloke of A Guy Called Bloke. While his blog is full of a variety of literature, I started following him because of his poetry; Bloke writes engaging poems that the common mortal can understand. I strongly recommend you visit his blog!

As I mentioned above, this is quite an old nomination. But I have been far too busy with my master’s thesis lately to address it, which I will be posting about soon.

Versatile Blogger Award Description

According to Bloke’s blog, the Versatile Blogger Award is all about building an online community. It is based on the following criteria:

  • The quality of one’s writing and/or photographs,
  • The uniqueness of one’s topics, and
  • The amount of love put into one’s writing/photos.

Like all awards, the Versatile Blogger Award comes with a set of rules. The first is to acknowledge and thank your nominator, which I have done already. You must then post seven facts about yourself. The last task is to nominate fifteen other bloggers for the award.

Seven Facts About Me

I tried to think of a good way to introduce this section, but I could not. So here are the seven facts:

  1. I like cold and snowy winters – to a point.
  2. I still get excited when I see ‘common’ animals like deer and squirrels.
  3. While I was almost exclusively into big cats when I started this blog, my interests have started to diversify.
  4. Sweets are my dominant vice. Better than drugs or alcohol I suppose.
  5. One of my greatest ambitions is to walk to the edge of an active volcano and drop a golden ring in it (ten points to anyone who gets this reference).
  6. I simply cannot sit still for more than two hours at a time.
  7. My favorite device for making coffee is now the moka pot or “cafetera.”

Please understand that my nomination represents a token of appreciation: it means that I like your content. If you are an award-free blog or have already received the Versatile Blogger Award, you are not obligated to accept this nomination.

In no particular order, nominees are:

  1. Cindy Knoke
  2. Grabbety Covens
  3. Musiewild
  4. iseeyoureality
  5. Alexi
  6. Nick’s Wild Life
  7. Makayla Nielson
  8. Charles French
  9. Tiffany Belle Harper
  10. Afzal Moolla
  11. Photographyofnia
  12. Cheche Winnie
  13. Life and Day to Day Things by a Pond Lover
  14. Uncertainty
  15. Jess T.

Congratulations nominees!

20 Thoughts

  1. A huge congratulations on the award 🎉
    That Moka pot is so cute.

    Sweets.. I can’t remember the last time I actually ate one but anything beats alcohol and drugs.
    Your active volcano walking ambition is quite risky though 🙂
    Might you be referring to the lord of the rings …

    I just did a post on the versatile blogger award but thank you anyway for nominating me that was kind of you.

    Btw you mind re-following my blog. My site got changed and that messed everything up for me.

    1. Thanks Alexi! Moka pot’s also make great coffee! They’re a traditional, Italian method for brewing coffee (moka pots are called “cafetera” in Italy).

      Yes, I was indeed referring to the Lord of the Rings! You’ve just won 10 points!

      No worries about not accepting the award :)

      I’ve already re-followed your blog :)

    1. No need to apologize! I have already received the Liebster Award, but I’m flattered that you’ve chosen to nominate me!

      However, I will likely not be able to address this nomination for another few weeks. But I appreciate it nonetheless.

  3. Wonderful news and very well deserved – congratulations! Always enjoy reading about your travels near and far, and your unique insights into nature both human and non-human. (Also: I still enjoy my old Moka pot, it’s nearly 30 years old and still going strong! Never burns out like an electric coffeemaker, and really should last a lifetime.)

    1. Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoy my posts!

      Unfortunately I doubt my Moka pot will last very long: it was starting to rust in multiple places after just 3-4 uses. Now that I know I like this brewing method I’m going to invest in a more well-made moka pot in the near future.
