Award time!

I’m also so, so, SO chuffed whenever anybody nominates me for an award. I just love feeling that not only is someone reading my words, but thinking of me and taking the time to consider me for an award. It warms me inside and out and I want to say thank you to Rob and Ranin for nominating me.

This is the Very Inspiring Blog Award, which kinda looks like this:

Okay. So the steps to this dictates that I crack out the rules for this award, which are as follows:

  1. Display the award logo on your blog.
  2. Check

  3. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  4. Check

  5. State 7 things about yourself.
  6. See below

  7. Nominate 15 bloggers for this award.
  8. See below

  9. Notify those bloggers of the nomination by linking to one of their specific posts so that they get notified by ping back.
  10. On the way!

Woohoo! Okay, seven things.

  1. I’ve only recently discovered (like within the last month) that I kinda like omlettes
  2. I very quickly and very easily get addicted to new TV shows; current obsession being Breaking Bad
  3. I have a tendency to over stretch myself and then I get surprised when I have a meltdown
  4. I can’t – JUST CAN’T! – watch things like Children In Need or Red Nose Day; they hurt my brain
  5. I can’t STAND apple products and yet I’m seriously considering buying an ipad -_-
  6. I used to make comic strips out of photos taken during days out with my geeky mates
  7. I always struggle to come up with another random facts (that I haven’t already used) to cover these things. Yes… I realise this is something of a cheat answer :p

Next up, fifteen bloggers! I always struggle with this too, but these bloggers, some of them recent follows, are all worthy of this award. Okay, here goes!

That’s me done. Thanks again Rob and Ranin. I deeply appreciate the nomination. ^_^

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

  3. Thanks for the nomination 😀 What’s your favourite kind of omelette? My personal omelette philosophy is go bacon, or go home.

    Congratulations on the award! My husband and I have never cared for Apple, either, but we broke down and got an iPad. I have to admit, the thing is darn handy, especially for travel. 😉

    Congrats! And thanks for the nomination! I promise I’ll pass mine on. I’ve recently run through most of my followed blogs from another award, and the rest are people we know in common that you’ve already nominated.
    A happy kind of problem, but still a puzzler!

  8. Thanks for the shout out! By the way, I emailed you a few days ago. Did you happen to get it? Maybe your spam folder? I had a favor to ask. Let me know. (ava.easterby@yahoo.com)
