A few weeks ago I was nominated for another Very Inspiring Blogger Award by The Big Forest, a blogger from the UK whose pictures always delight me.  If in the real world we could present these types of awards to people who we’ve never met but simply enjoy what they represent I think the world would be a better place.  I am always honored and humbled to receive recognition from a fellow blogger and take great pride in nominating others.

The rules of acceptance are:

Display the award logo on your blog

5. I am 3.5 years nicotine free and being a quitter was the best decision of my life;

One of my grandmother’s favorite sayings was, “you learn something new everyday”, it didn’t matter how old she got because she left this world at the age of 98, still learning something new.  When I started this blog in February it was an outlet to share my shopping trips with others because I no longer had Mama to share them with.  Oftentimes I over shopped to compensate for my loss but blogging about it made me feel better.  I used to post it on Facebook but felt my “friends” weren’t quite interested in my shoes and outfits so I decided to blog as a personal diary for myself.  One of the best things about blogging are your followers, they make you feel good when they post a comment or just simply checking the “like” button.  However, when you are nominated by a fellow blogger for an award it’s even more special and it’s an opportunity to “pay if forward”.

In April I was nominated for a “Versatile Blogger Award” by The Lipstick Giraffe, being a neophyte I didn’t know that there were things to do in order to accept the honor, I just simply replied “thank you” and kept on blogging.  Now that time has passed and I’ve learned something new I am now finally accepting this honor properly and completing the required tasks:

  • Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging

  • Let them know that you have nominated them

  • Share 7 random facts about yourself

  • Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you

  • Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your blog post

Seven Random Facts About Me:

  1. I like Blaxplotation films (Shaft, Super Fly, Coffee, Def by Temptation, JD’s Revenge, Cornbread Earl and Me, Cotton Comes to Harlem….I could go on and on)

  2. Ex-smoker – 35 years, clean for 3 years – yay me!

  3. 1st “big girl” kiss was with Ray Rice’s great-uncle – yes, Ray Rice from the Baltimore Ravens, and no, he wasn’t even born yet

  4. Afraid of Ferris Wheels, even the little ones at local carnivals

  5. Am an orphan, both parents and both sets of grandparents are deceased

  6. Named my son after an actor (Malik Yoba) and my sister, Gloria who was killed in 1992,  I let hubby hyphenate his first name – al-Malik Glorian Blake

  7. Want to retire on an island renting fishing poles and bait!
