Very Inspiring Blogger Award

very-inspiring-award2[1]

I received this wonderful nomination from Rose some time ago of one of my fav blogs, http://howdoyousaytacoinspanish.wordpress.com/.  I’ve been negligent in time lapse for responding/accepting (trying hard to catch up on these awards).

Like Rose herself, I can’t believe I was nominated and I am deeply honoured. Thank you Rose!  Now down to business, the Very Inspiring Blogger Award is a way of creating a sense of community amongst bloggers.  So in that spirit, let the creating begin…

Seven interesting things about me:

1. Like my nominator, my first language was not English, even though I was born in Canada.  My first language was French, though now I daresay my Spanish is better than my French.  I learned English as we went along, but more formally when I began public school in grade 4.
2. I speak a fair amount of Spanish, little bit of French now, but mostly English.
3. Like my nominator … I love shoes..!! I have a huge collection. I’m definitely addicted :)
4. Rose, I too love coffee…all kinds…iced, hot, room temperature. hahaha…
5. I love experiencing different cultures.  Clearly my fave is Dominican!
6. I have zero tolerance for what I consider bad people … we wont go there, lol, read my blogs 🙂
7. I live in the tropics but am not a fan of the high heat and humidity!

These are the fifteen inspiring blogs that I nominate.  Clearly I will not forward the nominations to some of them.  Habitat is far too busy to join in, as is the The National Post.  None-the-less I have included them as they are so worthy!  Some for joy, some for news.  And all essential to my literary well-being:

  1. Congratulations on your award and muchas gracias for nominating me! It’s nice to be recognized and since very few of us actually get any money for our efforts it is special to be appreciated by peers. Best wishes for your continued success blogging and otherwise!
