The Versatile Blogger Award


The Versatile Blogger Award

In honor of this new year and decade, I’ve decided to (finally) do another blogger tag that I was nominated for! Hurray! I know I always say this, but I really am so flattered and humbled when someone nominates me for a blogging award. That means they either like my blog, me, or both! (Hopefully both!) Either way, I thought this would be a lovely way to start off the new year. (Plus, I’m super behind on all of the awards I’ve been tagged in. Oops! But I have all of 2020 to make up for it, right?)

The Versatile Blogger Award Rules
  1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself.
  3. Nominate fifteen other bloggers.
I was nominated by the spectacular Naomi over at Inching Forwards. Her blog is a wonderful mix of real life issues, mental health, and so much more. She writes about a little bit of everything and really wants to help others improve their lives, by focusing on mental health, self-care, and by making positive changes in the world. (I mean, how cool is she??) Her writing is so honest and interesting, but she also brings up such important subjects and handles them with such care. But she’s not afraid to be herself and I admire her for that! If you’re looking for a one of a kind blog by an amazing blogger, you need to read and subscribe to Inching Forwards. Plus, she loves cats, just like me! Thank you so much for the nomination, Naomi! As a big fan of you and your blog, I’m so, so honored! (Plus her little description of my blog on her tag, helped remind me that I am a decent blogger and I was so encouraged by her lovely words about my blog. It really has motivated me to keep blogging!)

7 Facts About Me
  1. I am incredibly stubborn! I don't like people telling me what to do or choosing for me. I get very upset if my choice has been taken away! Also, fun fact: I’ll most likely do something you want me to do if you tell me not to do it. Yep, even I know that people have to use reverse psychology on me! (By the way, no one get any ideas! I know how I work!)
  2. I’ve had a lot of odd jobs over the years, but the one I’ve done the most has been dog-sitting! The ironic part? I’m more of a cat person! Not that I don’t like dogs, they just aren’t my preferred pet. Oh, what I do for a few bucks!
  3. When I was younger, I either wanted to be a veterinarian or an artist. Then I found out all the sad and gross things a vet has to do to treat animals (I’m very squeamish and don’t like seeing animals in pain) and I also realized I didn’t have much artistic ability, despite taking many art classes when I was younger. Oh well!
  4. I was home-schooled from 4th grade all the way up to high school. And yes, my mom taught me. And yes, I do have friends and was properly socialized. Just in case you were wondering! (Let’s break that stereotype, people! Home-schooled kids are- usually- quite normal! Minus me, of course)
  5. I have a huge sweet tooth (or maybe all of my teeth are sweet teeth!). I love anything (milk) chocolate. So I’m obsessed with candy bars, cookies, brownies, and pies too (apple is my favorite!). I could literally go on! I really have to reign myself in and try not to go too overboard when sweets are around! This past Christmas was really hard for me, you guys.
  6. I tend to watch way too much Youtube! You know how some people binge-watch Netflix? I binge-watch Youtube! The channels I’m most obsessed with now are KoreanEnglishman and Jolly. They're run by two British guys, Josh and Ollie, who love South Korea and share their experiences there and in England too. It’s really educational but also lots and lots of fun! Plus, you get to meet (and love) Josh and Ollie, their families and friends, since they share visits to Korea, Korean food, and lots of other Korean things with them. South Korea is now on my bucket list thanks to them!
  7. I’m so embarrassed to admit this, but I am an interrupter! I honestly don’t do it to be rude, I just sometimes get excited when someone brings up a topic that I’m interested in and I just kind of open my mouth and the words just fall out as someone else is talking. I’m getting better at it, and I apologize often for doing it, and then let them finish talking. Again, I’m not trying to be rude, but it’s almost like if I don’t speak, then I’ll forget what I wanted to tell them later! But I think I’m getting better at letting people finish speaking and trying to remember what I wanted to say after they finish talking! I'm a work in process.

For the bloggers I tagged, I know I’ve said this before on previous tags, but I completely understand if tags aren’t your thing, or you’ve been tagged before, so no pressure if you don’t do the tag! I just wanted to nominate you all because I admire each and every one of you and your blogs as well! And for those of you reading this, please check out everyone’s blogs, and read and subscribe to them too! Each person on this list has a wonderful blog and they all work so hard on them!

That concludes my nomination for the Versatile Blogger Award! I hope you enjoyed reading it and learning seven (strange, most likely) facts about myself! Again, I’m so flattered that Naomi nominated me! Thank you again, Naomi! I feel like bloggers work so hard on their blogs and don’t get enough credit and that these awards really help highlight all of the time and effort we put into our blogs. It’s a medium I feel like doesn’t get enough recognition (unlike YouTube) but I think bloggers deserve more consideration and credit for what we put out into the world! So these awards/tags are a perfect way to show others that we bloggers put in the time, our talent, and our hard work into our little corners of the internet for others to enjoy and for us to express ourselves.

(I kind of feel like that was my acceptance speech for this nomination. Oops! Didn’t mean for that to happen. At least it was heartfelt! Also, I forgot to thank my family. Sorry, Mom and Dad!)

What did you think of blogger awards and tags? I think they’re a lovely way of spreading encouragement and showcasing other bloggers and their blogs. Let me know if you’ve ever been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award or any other blogger award and what you think of them!

Stay Weird,
Emily

  1. Congratulations on being nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! Oooh, love what Naomi's blog is all about. I love these fun facts about you. I can totally relate about wanting to be a vet. I mean, I don't think there are catsitters, cats can take care of themselves (which is why I LOVE them). Oooh, it is good that you know your traits. I totally get you about being an interrupter. Thanks for sharing all of these cool facts about yourself!

    1. Hi Nancy! Thank you so much!! I was very flattered to be nominated :) And Naomi and her blog are both amazing! Aw, thanks. I was wracking my brain for anything interesting about myself. Sometimes it's hard to think of anything anyone might find interesting, so I'm glad I'm glad they were fun to read! I totally agree! I was considering cat-sitting, until I reminded myself that cats are pretty self-sufficient. I mean, maybe if someone was going on vacation, you'd need someone to check on them everyday, but other than that, cats are easy! I'm trying my best *not* to be an interrupter, but sometimes I just get so excited when someone mentions something I like, haha. Thank you so much for reading and commenting! <3 <3 <3

  2. I'm so glad you did the tag, yay! Thank you for your lovely words about me in the introduction too.

    I really liked your facts, particularly the interrupter one. I thought that was great of you to share. And, I truly don't think it's a bad thing if it's just enthusiasm, like you say, and you're aware that you're doing it. The annoying interrupters are the people who just barge into someone else's speech because they think what they're saying is more important - and I am POSITIVE from everything I've seen of you on your blog and Twitter that you're not that person!

    How you do it actually sounds awesome - you're listening and you're excited :1

    I know quite a few of your nominees, but I will definitely check out the ones that I don't xx

    1. Wheee thank you!! It was so much fun to do, so thank you so much fun for nominating me :) And of course! I meant them all! :1

      Aw thanks. It was kind of hard to come up with some facts about myself. Sometimes I don't find myself that interesting! lol. I'm really trying not to be an interrupter! And I'm glad you don't think it's a bad thing, because I feel awful when I do it. And thank you for saying that! I really am not that person! If anything I just let people dominate the conversation, so maybe interrupting is my way of getting a word in! Who knows, but I'm working on it ;)

      And great! I love all of my nominees, so I hope you discover a few new blogs to read!

      And thank you again for my nomination! And for reading my post and commenting! I really really appreciate it! :a

  3. It was so much fun learning a little about you in this. Honestly, I'm stubborn as hell too, it's something everyone points out eventually after meeting me lol

    1. Hi Britt! Awww thank you so much for reading! I'm so flattered! You too? Yay, stubborn ones of the world, unite! I'm pretty shy, so people think I'm a pushover (which I can be), but it always surprises others when I say "no" and am unmovable. Sorry not sorry! ;)

      Thank you for your wonderful comment!! <3

  4. Read your #1 and I'm not surprised at all. If I remember correctly, you're an Aquarius, right? All the Aquariuses I know hate getting told what to do! Haha! Fun fact: My best childhood friend and my husband are both Aquariuses - so yeah, we will get along!
    It's funny, I love binge-watching YouTube and I tend to interrupt people too! The latter is a habit I'm trying to kick. Like you, I tend to forget what I was going to say if I didn't say it. And YouTube is just great for someone who gets bored easily (me) haha!

    Congratulations on the nomination and thanks for nominating me! :)

    1. Hi Julie! I am an Aquarius! Are they stubborn?? If so, that's very much me! My sister is also an Aquarius, so that makes sense why we butt heads sometimes, haha. Are they really?? Haha, you've just surrounded with Aquariuses (if that's the plural form!), haven't you?? lol.

      I love YouTube! It really is the best for when you're bored, plus there are just so many videos to watch on any pretty much any subject! It's the best! And you do too?? It's not just me?? That makes me so relieved! And I agree with you! What if I forget what I'm saying and don't get the chance?? I think it's also a way of getting a word in edgewise, since I usually let other people talk and I usually just listen. I should also work on speaking up more, as well as not interrupting! ;P

      Thank you and you're so welcome!! <3

      Thank you so much for reading and your lovely comment! xoxo

  5. Hi, from another interrupter! :D I seriously relate to you here, and Youtube is another one, I can spend hours just sat there watching anything!!

    1. Hiya Sophie! Oh yay, I'm not the only one! I AM working on it, and I really don't mean to interrupt and be rude. I just get excited! ;) Oh, I LOVE Youtube! Same here! I have to limit myself, haha.

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting! xoxo

  6. Hi Emily,

    congrats for getting nominated. I wish you the best luck.
    I can identify with the facts about you, if not because my SO is very similar. Except the cat thing. It's dogs all the way in our house. :)

    1. Hi! Thank you so much! I'm always so flattered to be nominated for ANY award! Haha, I completely understand. Dogs are so sweet! But my house is a cats only house ourselves. But the thing we have in common is that both of our houses are probably covered in fur! ;)

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I really appreciate it!!

    1. Thank you so much!!!! I loved doing the tag and answering the questions! And oh yay! Hopefully my facts were interesting and not boring. Sometimes it's hard to think of "interesting" things about yourself that others might think are fun!

      And thank you so much for reading and commenting! xoxo

  8. the first one is me 100%. I hated when I was going to do something like dishes or something already and then my grandma tells me to do them. It's like now I don't want to do them anymore lol. Loved learning more about you!

    1. Hi Deandra! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! Oh good, I'm not the only stubborn person! Phew! And I totally get that! It has to be MY idea, not anyone else's, haha. Aww and thank you! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! I really appreciate it! xoxo

  9. Thanks for the tag Emily! I always like reading new facts about people and I can totally relate when it comes to binging Youtube. I'll watch something then something else gets recommended then I find a new channel and watch their videos and it's just a continuous cycle.

    And that's cool that you were home schooled! I don't get where that stereotype came from either. I actually played sports with a few kids who were and there was nothing different about them...shocking, I know ;)

    I really enjoyed reading this. Again, thank you for tagging me x

    1. Hi Meagan! And of course! I was happy to tag you! :) Oh same! I literally have to put a time limit on my YouTube watching time. And those recommended videos ALWAYS get me! I just go, "ooh look! Just one more!" And then two hours pass by...

      Thanks! Not many people think it's cool that I was home-schooled, haha, so thank you for saying that! Right? I did know a few kids who were home-schooled for religious reasons, and while they were pretty sheltered, they were still quite normal! I just ended up shocking them pretty often, lol.

      I'm so glad you enjoyed reading it! I love reading posts like these so it's fun to write my own answers. And you're very welcome! You always pop in my mind for fun tags to do <3 Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
