Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I’ve been cursed honoured to receive the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by not one, but two lovely bloggers – Incy Black and Michelle Smart.  Thank you ladies!  Please check out their blogs folks.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

The Rules

  • Display the award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • State 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate other bloggers for this award and link to them.

Now I’m going to be a tad revolutionary here and not tag anyone new, simply because I don’t think I could think up anyone.  If you want to take this on, please feel free – leave me a comment about your post and I’ll link back to it.

But on to the 7 things about me.  Sorry about that.

  1. I’m an aspiring writer – my main focus is on writing historical novels, but I also intend to write non-fiction history books.  I mention this first as it goes some way to explain why Incy and Michelle know of me and tagged me – they both being writers, but with contracts already.  Not that I’m bitter or anything… :twisted:
  2. I’m a bit of a bad blogger these days due to having a lot of commitments.  Not only do I attempt to write, I also study History of Art and manage that around a full time job.  Did I mention I do photography too?  I just got my first DSLR camera back in July 2012 and am attempting to become more professional.  Whether that translates into my doing it professionally is another thing entirely!
  3. Most people think I’m insane to take on the work for items 1-2.  It’s ok, I have chocolate.  I may also option Gin.
  4. I haunt historical houses, castles, ruins and any other old things – including museums.  I am a history/history of art anorak – which helps when you write about it, it has to be said.  See – Pinterest (obsession).
  5. Two different people have randomly told be that I have a) Pre-Raphaelite hair and b) Victorian hands.  I do not see this as A Bad Thing.
  6. Hmm, er… did I mention I get very attached to the historical figures I research?  Prince Rupert I salute you, to name but one.  Hot history guys are your friends people.
  7. Did I mention that the 7 things about me would be random?  Oh well, now you know.

See – bet you wished you hadn’t asked now…

Normal blog service [intermittent] will now resume. /ends

  1. Gosh you are bonkers. Do you ever take the time to do things like, oh, sleep? Pah to sleep I say – sleep is for wimps! And guess what? I have Pre-Raphaelite hair too! xxx

  2. Pre-raphaelite hair – yes, I understand that. But what on earth are Victorian hands? I’m hoping yours are victorian gentry, not the red chapped work-worn type! I admire you for NOT linking and passing on the award (no, please not me!) cos they can be burdensome in the extreme, they tend to turn up like buses in my experience. Nice to learn more about you!
