Versatile Blogger Award

Last week, I found out that Meg Dunley had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Wow, I thought. What a lovely surprise. Someone actually read my blog - and found it interesting.

You never know do you?

The Rules for excepting the Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

Thank the person who nominated you. Tell 7 things about yourself, so that your readers may learn more about you, and nominate 15 other newly discovered bloggers, then let them know you nominated them.

I have been slow to accept the award because life is so terribly itsy-bitsy during the January holiday season and also because I needed to work on my blog feed-reader. I decided to use the award as a motivator. I have been trawling blogs and working through a backlog of reading. I am not quite ready to nominate my Fabulous Fifteen yet, so keep watching. But I thought I may as well get the ball rolling by telling you seven things about me:

1. I was born in the summer - but, I celebrate my birthday in the winter

2. I became engaged at nineteen years of age, married at twenty, and had my first child before I turned twenty one

3. I had four children but only had three pregnancies

4. I am trying to write the next great Australian novel

5. I like silence, strong coffee and siocled (chocolate)

6. I learn Welsh

7. Self-doubt has been my life long companion
 I will work on the blog lists this week so please keep reading. But I just wanted to thank my nominator, Meg Dunley, and to point out that she has three blogs, and a travelogue. They are all worth reading:

It is so lovely to learn these things about you.
4 children? do you have twins?
Your novel, go for it! I am right behind you (and with you too!).
Silence...my love as well (and strong coffee and chocolate!).
Welsh - part of my heritage (and my given name, Megan Morgan)
Self doubt...my very own dark shadow!

Keep writing!

xx Meg

Is it twins or does one of your children belong to your partner? Sounds like a plot from a novel! I really enjoy your posts from across the globe.

Not twins - adoption. We lived in Fiji for four years and came home with an Indian daughter. :-)
