The Versatile Blogger Award

Hey, everyone!

How’s your long weekend looking? I finally feel like myself after Fan Expo. I never knew I could walk that much, but my feet say otherwise. 😲

I’ve never done this award before. Leslie from Books Are the New Black nominated me. You need to check out her blog. You’re in for a treat.

Thank you, Leslie! πŸ’œπŸ˜˜

The rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Leave a link to their blog
  • Tell us 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers/bloggers you’ve discovered recently or follow regularly

Seven Things about Me

  1. I’ve almost died three times. I practically lived in my local ER/hospital because I was always sick.
  2. Since I had a speech impediment when I was young, I hated public speaking. I couldn’t do that part of an assignment, and I certainly can’t do it now.
  3. I’m a marketing and publicity intern at a small Canadian press. Getting this internship took me years. I actually mean that. I couldn’t believe that I got it, and I’m so lucky that I have.
  4. I may have half-siblings, but I don’t see them as family. Over the years, I found mine through friends, and they’re more of a family than my own blood.
  5. I don’t like peacocks. I had one stalk and chase me. And ever since then, I can’t look at one without having a “flight” moment. They may be pretty, but they are dangerous.
  6. I hate when books show up damaged. My collection is basically pristine. And when I see a book damaged, I cry a little inside.
  7. I swore off getting another cat when my first pet, Tobi, died. It took me years to get over that loss. However, I found this little guy walking in my neighbour’s driveway, whistled at him, then fed him when he followed me home. And he just walked right into my family’s life. Literally, he just walked through our front door and occasionally knocked on it when the rain came. Bud, my stray-turned-pet, has captured my heart. He’s a fighter like me, and I adore this little man. ISN’T HE CUTE?! 😍

  1. I didn’t know that you work in publishing! That’s so cool!

    Also, I completely relate to #4. I have a half sister that I really rarely talk to and it’s weird to think that we’re actually family.

    And your cat is adorable! 😻 Please give him some love from me!

    • I have a new appreciation for it now once I started working at the small press. You don’t know how hard it is to get bloggers to read small press work.

      Now you’ve got me all teary. 😭 Agreed! Everyone says he followed the right family home. Our neighbours knew about him and were happy he got a forever home. He was on the street for too long.

    • Ahh, that’s adorable! I’ve found most stray cats are. I was so surprised he let me pet him when he was still living on the street. He’d come running when he saw me or heard me whistle for him. He still does. πŸ˜‚ He’s such a little suck. I love it.


  2. Thank you so much for the nomination!!!

    I have also been stalked by peacocks (like 3 separate times in 3 different countries) and they are about as evil as geese! I had a speech impediment when I was younger and remember going to speech therapy in kindegarten and first grade: “keep the lion in the cage.” Why do I still remember that?!?!

    • You’re welcome! πŸ’œ

      The both of us shouldn’t go near any birds, period. The same thing with blue jays. I had one dive bomb me. And I still get creeped out by them.

      !!! I remember that too! I was in speech therapy for a few years, but I still get some difficulty with a few words. One saying that stuck with me was “funny bunny.”
