Attention Deficit Blogger or put in a nicer way...

I have been awarded the versatile blogger award. That's the nice way to say, you blog about a variety of subjects. I used to try to stick with mostly homeschooling topics, but my blog is so much more than that now. I am working on some Feingold posts, some reviews, and some how-to's for homeschooling. I have some half-written posts in my drafts, just limited time in front of the computer.

But this was a special surprise. I am copying and pasting from Savannah at Ramblings of a Christian Mom. She's a kind soul who reads my blog, she awards me, and sent a sweet email. Not only is she versatile, she is color co-ordinated. Her blog matches the award.

A Versatile Blogger is one who......... 
1) Provides variety in his or her posts 
2) Entertains, informs, inspires and intrigues readers 
3) Continues to grow as a blogger
Now, I have to say, I do provide variety. About # 2, I think I may intrigue my readers, perhaps they say,"What is she really talking about?" No doubt, I am continuing to grow as a blogger. This sedentary work has influenced my pants size. But really, Savannah probably noticed my first vlog yesterday. That's true blog growth.
There are 3 simple rules with this award:
1)Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them
2)Share 7 secrets about yourself
3)Award 10-15 other bloggers with this award and let them know about it.
I tried to follow most of the rules, I linked back to Ramblings of a Christian Mom. I'll share 7 secrets about myself. Even though they won't be secrets after I share them.

  1. I used to sing with all my heart when I was alone in the car, now I enjoy the silence.
  2. I secretly hate grocery shopping. If I never had to do it again, I would be so thankful.
  3. I loved my real estate job until 3 days ago.
  4. I force my children to go to the beach. By July, they are beached out and I'm just getting started. 
  5. I throw out annoying toys when my children are sleeping or not looking.
  6. When I heard about the 17 year old boy in China who sold a kidney to buy an iPad, I was disgusted.  Then I decided, I could relate to wanting one so bad. I am a technology addict, with some Christian conviction. No iPad for me for a little while.
  7. My dream vacation would be sitting on a beach reading.
Now to nominate 10-15 bloggers will take some effort. I am going to wait on that one. I'm breaking a rule and it bothers me a little. But not enough change. Here's three: The Common Room, Rural Revolution, and Footprints in the Butter.

Thanks for stopping by,

I just wanted to share that I discovered your blog through Joyful Learner. I have been reading through your posts and pages for about 2 hours! My daughter was has suffered from stomach issues and is currently gluten free. When I was reading your page about The Feingold Diet I wondered if this would help her also. I have been working towards removing all artificial sugars, dyes, and additives from our diet. I have introduced green smoothies and we began seeing a naturopath and less of our traditional pediatrician. I just placed an order at Amazon for three books that I discovered through your blog. Thank you from your newest follower!
