Blog Awards

I’d Like to Thank the Academy…

Just kidding.  For real, though,  I’d like to thank Mandy over at Adventures in Borkdom for awarding my blog with the Beautiful Blogger Award and the Versatile Blogger Award.  (Not sure about the whole repeat thing, but if I could give them back to you, I totally would!)

I’m so excited!  I’m so new to blogging so I certainly wasn’t expecting any awards…I’m still not Freshly Pressed and have yet to reach even 100 views in one day! 🙂

The Beautiful Blogger Award:

  • Thank the person who gave you the award
  • Paste the award on your blog
  • Link the person who nominated you for the award
  • Nominate 7 bloggers or less
  • Post links to the 7 blogs you nominated
I look forward to reading each of these whenever I see a new post or get an alert that there is a new post.
I enjoy reading Carley’s posts and love her writing style.
I’m in love with Sir Chick and Snickerdoodle and love reading about them (especially Chix-a-lot Fridays!)
One of my best friends who always has something interesting to say. She’s one of the people I always turn to for advice.  🙂
I participate in a couple of MizB’s weekly memes (Musing Mondays & WWW Wednesdays) and have found new blogs to follow through her blog. I’ve also found some great book recommendations.
It’s great reading about Emily’s journey through her pregnancy (and now reading about the beginnings of motherhood!)
Mrs. Pea (Margaret) is just so crafty and she has some great craft ideas! (and we have the same blog layout! 🙂 hehe)
Jessica is one of my best commentors and always has something great to say, offer, or suggest.  I really enjoy reading her blog and look forward to whenever a new post comes out!

The Versatile Blogger Award:

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.

The link to Mandy’s blog is up at the top of this post where I thanked her! 🙂

15?  Okay, while I decide which blogs to give this award to, I will come up with my 7 random fun facts.

Let’s see…

1. I’m 26 years old and don’t have my driver’s license yet.

2. I’m left-handed.

3. I’m obsessed with Neal Caffery from the TV show White Collar (he’s so handsome).

Neal Caffrey (played by Matt Bomer) yum.

4. I can quote pretty much all of Spaceballs.

Spaceballs, 1987

5. I have 4 tattoos.

6. I’m obsessed with Harry Potter and Game of Thrones. (though I think my obsession for HP has waned slightly…)

7. I danced for 10 years throughout elementary and high schools (always ballet and jazz, but tap and acrobatics were thrown in there for a short while…acrobatics a very short while!) and competed in multiple competitions, including a National Competition held in Las Vegas – UNLV (and a testament to my HP obsession: I remember my mom asking a family friend to pick up the newest book for us – I think it was Chamber of Secrets – since we would be at the competition when it came out on bookshelves).

Okay, the bloggers I’m giving this award to…
Some of these may have already received the award, but I don’t know whether you can receive it more than once, so if not…oh well!
Most of those are on WordPress, but a few are outside of it.  Each of these is a great blog to check out whenever you get the time.  You may notice that most tend to fall under the book blog category (but let’s face it, I’m a book blog, so I’m more likely to read those).  However, everyone always ends up posting more than their intended topic, right?  It’s great getting to know people through their writing, and you can do that with each of the following blogs.

1. thetwentysomethingblog

2. Snobbery

3. Bookblob

4. Red Lips and Academics

5. I Can’t High Five

6. Sarah Smiles Awhile

7. The Oddness of Moving Things

8. Highest Form of Whit

9. But What Is My Life?!

10. Second Lunch
Hysterical blog/comic combo

11. The Librarian Who Doesn’t Say Shhh

12. Beth Fish Reads

13. Sarah Reads Too Much

14. The Broke and the Bookish

15. The Ivy Cottage Blog

Thanks again to Mandy!  I really appreciate it 🙂

  1. Jessica is pretty awesome! I’m glad that you’ve gotten to know her too!

    Yeah Harry Potter and GOT–I’m finally going to catch up on the first two episodes od Season 2 tonight! Have you also read the books? They are brilliant! Of course, I’m constantly comparing the show to the books, and that’s how I first got called a “bork”. But I thought Season 1 was spot-on so I hope season 2 lives up to A Clash of Kings!

    Overall, excellent random facts! Thanks for sharing!


    1. Yes, I think the show is pretty faithful to the books. I’m always reading up on stuff related to the books/show and my favorite site for all of that is I have it saved on my Google reader so I’m almost positive that’s the web address. 🙂


      1. i will check that out! Have you checked out Inn at the Crossroads? I don’t know if you like to cook, but it provides authentic recipes for all of the foods eaten in the books! I loooove that site!


        1. Yes, I’he seen that site before, I think I’m following it on my Google reader… I’m not a huge cooker at all, but I’m always interested in seeing recipes!


  2. I really enjoyed learning more about you! I think it’s nice to see people take a break from the standard memes to post more about themselves. Happy you shared (and I ❤ Spaceballs too).

    Thanks so much for giving us the award, we really appreciate the nod!


  3. Oh wow! Congrats on all your awards, you certainly deserve them! Thank you as well for nominating me for one of them. You just made my day!

    I use to work with a woman who didn’t have her license until 27. It is not uncommon when you live in the city. The two biggest issues she ran into were bars not accepting her non-driver ID and when she did get a car her insurance premiums where through the roof as a new driver. I might suggest getting your license for that reason alone.

    Thanks again Danielle!


    1. Thank you!

      Yes, living in the city was part of the reason I never got it (also laziness!). I have a liquor I’D so getting into places is not a problem. I just need to get the license to get it over with. Hehe


  4. I completely forgot to come back and say thanks for the nomination 😀 I was reading all of the Top 10 Tuesday’s Advice for New Bloggers and realized I’m horrible at keeping up with comments and Thank Yous! So thank you again!
