Hall of Shame

I have to hang my head in shame this afternoon. Procrastination has caught up to me.

I’m not even going to try to explain how it happened … suffice it to say a blogging honor should be replace with special plaque in the Blogging Hall of Shame.

Victoria Kunzmann — writing at http://vakunzmann.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/procrastinator-thy-name-is-victoria/ graciously nominated my little blog for the Versatile Blogger Award. The honor is somewhat tarnished because it was made way back on Dec. 23 and I’m just getting around to publicly acknowledging it {I did privately respond and thank Victoria when I learned of the honor}.

versatileblogger11In her blog that day, Victoria noted her procrastination resulted in a delay of acknowledgment from when she was nominated. Her delay was a mere two months … mine is almost five months {hangs head in shame}. No excuses. It simply slipped off my radar … even though I do follow her blog. My bad {hangs head in shame … again}.

Here are the rules as listed on the “The Versatile Blogger Award” blog:

Thank the person who gave you this award (check)

Include a link to their blog (see above)

Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly (see below)

Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award (see below)

Finally, tell the person who nominated you seven things about yourself (to follow)

My nominees (in no particular order):

http://www.journeywithd.com/ — I may have a bias with this one since Dee is my daughter … and the push that got me started in the crazy blogging world.

http://lisajobaker.com/ — my Friday writing muse who has given me a glimpse into the world of motherhood.

http://pursuinggrace.com/ — a collection of down home inspiration

http://mommylcsw.com/ — grace! grace! grace!

http://www.mywordstudy.com/ — another success story is realizing the Christian walk is a journey, not a label.

http://texanaskitchen.com/ — yum … with a great sense of humor

http://maryannemistretta.wordpress.com/ — she keeps me connected with home — northern New Jersey

http://prayloveblog.wordpress.com/ — short and sweet with inspiring graphics
http://bryanpattersonfaithworks.wordpress.com/ — always an uplifting read

http://morningstoryanddilbert.wordpress.com/ — it wouldn’t be morning without this one

http://suzie81speaks.com/ — a lot of wisdom from a young lady (who already has one of these awards, by the way)
http://inspired2inspirecoachingservices.wordpress.com/ — I’ve been a witness to the fall and rebirth

http://thesaltedbanana.com/ — love the morning photos of the lake

http://thatmontrealgirl.wordpress.com/ — one my Canadian favorites

http://nedhickson.com/ — as a fellow newsman, I can appreciate his humor and insights (although he will probably decline because, in his words, he’s “an ungrateful jerk.” {No he’s not!})

Seven things about me:

I love to travel

Cold and snow are my friends

I’m just an ordinary guy walking along this journey called life.

I enjoy reading various posts on a variety of subjects, although I am not an avid “reader”

I can visualize every car I have ever owned {and wish I had many of them back!}

I have been blessed with great memories and continue to make more

I try to live moment to moment … not dwell on the past … not over-anticipate the future … just enjoy the present

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: God has already equipped you with everything you need to live a fulfilled life. You have everything you need right now to accomplish your God-given destiny.
