I feel so honored!! I just received the Versatile Blogger Award (VBA) from author and blogger, Glenda Mills!
According to my sponsor, this is what VBA is all about:
Versatile Blogger Award (VBA)
What is it?
As far as I can tell — details are rather sketchy and only the creator knows for sure — this lofty-sounding award is basically a mutual admiration society where bloggers recognize their peers for writing quality blogs that touched them in some way. The VBAs honor the blogger rather than specific posts. It’s a chance for bloggers to pat themselves on the back like the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences does with the Oscars. Until someone starts giving out Blogscars, the VBAs will have to suffice.
What are the criteria?
If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award. I nominated 15 outstanding bloggers below. Congratulations!
Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
Thank you, Glenda! I feel truly honored and blessed!
Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
Here is the link to Glenda’s blog: http://glendamills.com/
Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
The envelope, please…
