Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I was surprised and delighted (and inspired) to discover that I’d been nominated for the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award” by writer and artist, Uvi Pozansky.  She’s on Facebook as well, under Uvi Art Gallery where you can see more of her fabulous art.

It is especially gratifying to receive this award as I have not been blogging regularly lately. Instead, I’ve been catching up on some reading, wrestling with an essay idea for a Brevity magazine contest, circling that novel idea I hatched during NaNoWriMo, as well as taking flights of fancy on what to do for my birthday this year. Thanks, Uvi for inspiring me in so many ways and for nominating me.

The rules of the award are as follows:

1. Link back to the blogger who nominated you.  Accomplished in paragraph one.

2. Post the award image to your page. See above.

3. Share 7 facts about yourself. Hmmm. Here goes…

  • I was an apprentice “window dresser” as a teenager.
  • I love getting together with friends and/or family and cooking a meal together.
  • I’m loyal to a fault, can’t help it.
  • I could never have a relationship with anyone who doesn’t love animals.
  • According to family lore, my German great-grandfather’s family owned a castle in the Black Forest region in Germany (he emigrated to South Africa).
  • At six years old and again at eleven, I won Best Ballet Repertoire at an Eisteddfod held at the Women’s Guild Hall, in Nkana.
  • I always wanted to be a professional dancer.

4. Nominate 15 other blogs and inform them about it. (I’m nominating 8). These are blogs that interest me.  Please take the time to take a look; I think you’ll like what you see.

  1. Rossandra, thank you so much. The encouragement means a lot to me. I saw your post on Facebook and thought, wow that award graphic is really something! I didn’t know I would have the pleasure of displaying it, which I will do proudly.

    Again, thank you!

  2. Congratulations, Rossandra! And many thanks for the nomination. You totally made my day–especially being in the company of these other bloggers. I loved reading your 7 facts, and with your grace, can easily imagine you as a professional dancer. I hope you at least dance around your kitchen as you cook up all those fabulous meals with your friends and family.

  3. For your birthday you should go to Germany and try to find the family castle. How totally cool! Thanks for the kind acknowledgement, my friend. So happy to hear of all the projects you’ve got going in that creative mind of yours.

  4. Rossandra- congrats on the nomination and I liked learning even more about you! You deserve it and I love being in the compmany of these othr bloggers. You rock!

  5. Why does it not surprise me that we share a love of dancing? Not ballet (for me), but something that gives expression to the music within me. Congratulations. So glad to share the Inspiring Blogger stage with you.
