I feel bad in that it has taken me so long to write this post. First I was sick, then I was traveling and then I was sick again. No excuse, and I want everyone to know how honoured I feel in receiving a Versatile Blogger Nomination, not once, but twice!
Sonel over at Sonel’s Photographic Corner is a dear soul and was kind enough to nominate me for the Versatile Blogger Award just about three weeks ago. I was busy preparing for my trip and then traveling, so I haven’t been able to properly thank her for this act of kindness.
Then, Rosina at, Sobre la Traduccion, nominated me as well. What an honour to be recognized by these two lovely ladies.
The Versatile Blogger Award is all about to introduce bloggers to each other and to promote quality blogs that the awardees and their readers might not been discovered otherwise.
