Unexpected Bouquet Award

There are not many things that cause me to be speechless because I like to think I have an answer (or a point) for most things.  Today was one of those moments. I was nominated for the Bouquet of Three Award! I write my blog about my passion for the restoration of my Mustang and I enjoy doing it. I never expect to receive any award for that reason as it is quite a niche subject, but if anybody takes time out to read my blog then I am grateful that they have kindly given up their time to share my passion. There are some really great blogs out there and I was lucky enough to find a great blog by Alicia Benton http://aliciabenton.wordpress.com/ Her blog has made me laugh, reflect on and look at things from a slightly different perspective too; it really is worth stopping by to have read. I am humbled to be nominated for this award. I would honestly nominated the award to Alicia if she hadn’t already got it.

Thank you Alicia so very much.

Here are the rules:

1. Proudly display the Award Certificate on your blog page!

2. Announce your win with a post.  Be sure to link your post back to me as a “thank you” for the nomination.

3. Present up to 15 awards to fellow deserving bloggers.

4. Let them know you’ve nominated them for this awesome award.

5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

The Versatile Blogger Award

versatileblogger11770319514

I would like to say a massive Thank You to a great site Just Cruisin 2 for my nomination of The Versatile Blogger Award on the 7th March 2013

More details about the award can be found here: http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/

I am still a little shocked, that I received a nomination for The Versatile Blogger Award. It has come as a real surprise and I am very much flattered by it all. Don’t worry my head won’t swell and I won’t change anything I do as a result. I enjoy sharing my blog and I love the interaction as a result of the blogs I follow and those who follow me. All the blogs I follow are all excellent and stand out for their own reasons in their own fields, they give me my daily fix of automotive adrenaline, they make me smile, they make me say “ahhh”, they make me think, or they make me appreciate the world I live in. To pick just 15 to nominate has been a really hard task, it’s almost impossible choice and I feel sad I can’t nominate all the blogs I follow. I lost sleep over the choices I have had to make, honestly I have.

Versatile Blogger Award Rules:

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site: http://versatilebloggeraward.wordpress.com/
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
