Versatile Blogger Award 2

By Pandora Poikilos

The last time I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award, I had just come home from my VP Shunt surgery. The blog-sphere still seemed very new and I was thrilled to bits. Someone out there thought my blog was worth giving an award too.

Now, it's been seven months after my surgery, 11 months of meeting some very blog-a-licious people and I've got my second Versatile Blogger Award. I'm ecstatic! Who was this generous soul who made my day? It's Roy Durham. Thank you Roy!

I first met Roy when he started the Daisy Lemmas Riff, a group of bloggers coming together to continue a story. Different time zones, different backgrounds, different writing styles and still it bloomed.

What good is it to receive such joy and not share it, I'm selecting seven blogs (for now, there's just so many awesome blogs) to receive the Versatile Blogger Award too.

1. The lady with a wee voice but a very big heart voicing out topics that lack much needed attention - Life - Inspired By The Wee Man
2. The advice columnist that offers a much needed laugh and an even more clearer perspective with a tinge of sarcasm - Sonia Rumzi
3. Technology never felt so simple or rather you don't feel so stupid when reading humorous web anecdotes - HumorTech Blog
4. The ever unfolding love story filled with little specks of empathy and even more hope and lined with anticipation of better days to come - Dot
5. Her posts are centred on all things ... life. From random thoughts to parenthood and more, this is one writer you'll keep going back to for more - Sweepy Jean Explores The Webby World
6. If you ever feel a little short on faith, hope and love ... then this is one blog stop you must make. - Melinda Todd
7. The blog that teaches you about fighting with food, literally and it comes filled with loads of recipes for healthy, sensible food - Searching for Sustenance
