The Versatile Blogger Award

Thanks to my friend Lisa over at Little Homestead on the Hill, Neighborly Place has won it's first blog award- "The Versatile Blogger Award". Blog Awards are special to us bloggers as it means someone is actually reading what we write, and liking it. Thank-you Lisa for bestowing this award on my web-site.

I enjoy these awards as they promote interaction between bloggers and their readers. I do so enjoy it when I receive comments on my posts, and try to let other bloggers know when I really enjoy their posts too! That being said, here goes:

The Versatile Blogger Award:

Here are the RULES for the Versatile Blogger Award:

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Mention seven random things about yourself.
4. List these rules.
5. Award to 15 Bloggers
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are SEVEN random things about me...

1. I'm quiet but wish I could be more "vibrant".

2. I love ice cream.

3. If you are on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and are using a help-line to call a friend, don't even think of calling me if the question is related to tv or movies stars.

4. I love to go for walks with my dogs.

5. I must be related to Dr. Doolittle at some point in my genealogy, as I surround myself with animals and have since I was a child.

6. I grew up on the island of Montreal in Quebec in the suburbs but ever since I could remember I wanted to live on a farm.

7. I'd much prefer to curl up with a book at home then go to a movie theater.

Following are my fifteen "Versatile Blogger Award" nominees. I enjoy reading each of their blogs and appreciate their sharing a little bit about themselves and their lives with each of their posts. These are the blogs that make me go "Oh Goodie, a new post by ____". Some are not the most prolific of posters and I'm hoping perhaps that by bestowing this award on them, they'll be inspired to post! Please if you have time stop by the following blogs:
