I have been honored and humbled to receive the Kreativ Blogger Award from Carolyn Nicander Mohr at @WonderofTech. Carolyn has been a tremendous friend and supporter.
Not only is she Kreative, and keeps up with just about every new technological gadget and gizmo that comes down the pike, she has a regular column in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Yes, that Philadelphia and yes, that Inquirer.
I know she has been bugging me to do a guest post at her place, but I’m afraid the fax machine has come and gone. In fact, I am pretty sure they closed the patent office after that because nothing else could possibly be invented that would top the fax. I already knew writing fiction was her first love so I really need to get her to guest post at my place….maybe even take over my blog…:).
When I opened her post referencing this award, I thought it was going to be a new car. Unfortunately, it was not and under her terms of service, by opening the post signified acceptance of said award.
Acceptance means I now have to:
- nominate six (6) other bloggers that are outstanding and deserve the award.
- share ten (10) things people don’t know about me (well, at least I get to talk about myself…….).
Like Carolyn, in selecting my nominees I wanted to choose bloggers who I have never nominated for anything and most you will not have seen around these parts. What you will see from this list is not only their love of writing, but very kreatively as well. All are more than worthy to pay a visit to.
Judy Lee Dunn – In her own words: Well, I am happiest when I am writing. I blog to help people show up online in real and engaging ways.I like to show my readers how to make their blogs feel better. Be liked more. Be read more. And how they can use social media to get their brand out there in the world.
Also, she has been annointed by none other than the Danny Brown as a blogger you should really read in 2012. Tru dat….
Ms ‘Ruth’ Bullish – @Bullish Ink. She is always scheming up something kreative that really stretches your mind and typically rotating a different theme so you are bound to find something you like. BTW, she really does see dead people.
Pamela Fagan Hutchins – she writes award-winning fiction and nonfiction about “having it all” from the position of having a little too much of everything, and loving it: writer, mediocre endurance athlete (triathlon, marathons), wife, mom of an ADHD & Asperger’s son, five kids/step-kids, business owner, recovering employment attorney and human resources executive, investigator, consultant, and musician.
She still hasn’t figured me out yet, but I do know she likes humor.
Ruth Zive – She’s another one with a house full of kids. On top of that, she’s actually making some money with her writing. If you were to ask her, she would tell you she’s a a Freelance Copywriter and Content Marketing Strategist; and a damn kreative one at that.
Miss Bliss – @TheBlissBlog. She is very, very kreative and edgy too. She is in cahoots, with Ruth at Bullish and Ruth’s sister Jules. Notice how they leave you guessing as to what their real name’s are? Hmmmm…..
She has this little series featuring The Razor Girl that is quite interesting and of course, kreative.
Jules – @SweetBananaInk. Actually I’m sure Jules has other blogs out there but I know her from Sweet Banana and she’s part of the 3 Muskateerettes with Ruth & Ms Bliss. In a nutshell, Jules is an avid reader, skilled listener, compulsive storyteller and lousy keeper of secrets.
Sweet Banana is a very kreative place and they even invite other writer’s to play there as well. I even tried my hand at fiction; to less than rave reviews, but I did show up…:).
