Versatile Blogger Nomination and My Nominees

Being relatively new to the world of blogging, I was surprised to get a Versatile Blogger Nomination by Rod Tyson, who just so happens to have a lovely blog right here: Rod Tyson's Blog. (Thanks for the nomination!)

So here's what you should do if you're nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award:1 
1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
2. Add an image of the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

It's easy to nominate your friends, and in the process, you can get your name - and the name of your website - into the blogosphere! Since I am bound to follow the rules, here are seven terribly random things about myself: 

1. I love cats. 
2. I love cats even more when they kindly avoid hunting my feet or dropping dead bugs on my front porch. 
3. Zombies scare the heck out of me - yet I still like to read about them. Go figure. 
4. I don't like cleaning fishtanks. They smell. They're slimy. And they smell. Oh, I said that. 
5. I've been writing seriously since I was 13. My first novel was nearly a thousand pages long, written by hand in a stack of notebooks. Needless to say, I converted to typing soon afterwards.
6. I've been attacked by a Beagle. 
7. I can play the piano. But I can't read music, so I'm no Mozart. 

There you have it! And here are my fifteen nominees for the Most Versatile Blogger Award. 


  1. Thank you so much!!! I love your blog - the black and red is gorgeous!!! Oh, and did I see that you're a TVD fan also?? Squeee!

    1. Aw, thanks! ;) Yup, there's a whole gang of us TVD fans on Twitter...we have TVD thursdays! ;)

  2. I like cats who don't use my window boxes for litter boxes. So far, I've yet to find any in my neighborhood :)

  3. lol. I know how you feel! We used to have a sandbox in our backyard and it wasn't pretty. :P

  4. Thank you so much for the nomination! :) I nominated you right back!

  5. Dear friend and follower of JJ Botta - Freelance Writer: As a result of increased writing commitments, I have recently merged this website into The Disconnected Writer ( I hope you will continue to follow my blog at this location. Of course, I will follow back. Thanks a million!

  6. Thanks for the Re-nomination :) I totally relate to several of your random bits of info! When my cat was a kitten she split my little toe down one side as I got out of bed one morning. Erk...
    Now I'm wondering how the Beagle attack panned out...;) Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks! As for the beagle attack...let's just say it could only happen to me! ;P

    1. I actually don't know when it ends - sorry! It's almost like a chain letter, shared from one blogger to the next. I suppose we'll get some kind of word when it ends. :)

  9. I reposted this award on my blog. Thanks again, lady!


Get fictional - it's fun! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
