The Versatile Blogger Award

July 07, 2019

Happy Sunday (and happy belated Fourth of July!)

I didn’t bring this up in my monthly wrap-up, but this month is extremely busy for me. So I decided I might as well knock some tags off my list and nominate this month Tag July for my blog!

(No one said I was good at naming things, okay?)

We’re going to kick this month off - rather ironically - with the Versatile Blogger Award.

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you. Jenna, thank you so much!!

2. Link to the blog of the person who nominated you. Done!

3. Share 7 facts about yourself. *gulp*

4. Nominate 15 more bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award. Oh, shoot.

ANYways, on to the actual award/tag itself! I tried to make these as random as possible, so we'll see how this goes.

1. I don’t like hair touching my neck.
I’m not even kidding. This year, I decided not to cut my hair, and my usually-chin-length hair has gone past my shoulders and IT IS ANNOYING. I need to learn how to put it in a ponytail soon, or else I might possibly die.

2. I find cryptography super interesting.
When I was in first and second grace, I was OBSESSED with codes and ciphers and anything to do with spies. That interest has since waned, but I still want to write a book including these elements.

3. I used to play softball.
For some reason, one year I decided to go out for our local softball team. (I’d never played it before - unless you count games of Catch with my brother.)

Yeah . . . that year was interesting.

I did end up improving significantly - from not hitting the ball at all to hitting a few fouls and then getting walked several times. XD Our team won the championship (easily) and I won the Best Sportsmanship Award. (Honestly, that was probably because I was the worst person on the team.)

4. I’m not homeschooled.
I know a lot of people in this blogosphere are homeschooled, and I find that really cool because I only know, like, three homeschooling families in our area. But I, in fact, am not homeschooled.

(Just in case you didn’t know. XD)

5. I don’t like sequels.
If you asked me to pick any series and tell you my least favorite book in it, it will almost ALWAYS be the second book. Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, even KOTLC and LOTR . . .

6. I despise bugs.
Trust me, there have been many days over this summer that I’ve wished that I could exterminate every single bug in the universe. I HATE THEM. So if we’re outside together and you hear me scream, it’s not a mass murderer, it’s just a fly buzzing past.

7. I’m a proud member of the Warriors fandom.
Yes, that mega series about cats living in the forest. I’m a member of THAT fandom.

Admittedly, I haven’t read the books in FOREVER, but I’ll have to read them again soon. I love the characters so much!

And now to the tagged!

Does anyone else hate bugs? Who else is in the Warriors fandom - I feel like we’re diminishing! Let’s talk!

You Might Also Like


  1. Oh my gosh, the Warriors fandom. It feels like its been a million years since I read them...(Which is probably pretty accurate. If a year or two = a million at least.)

    And I LOVE ciphers and codes! Actually, I love the cold war, but ciphers are a big part of that :D I once saw an actually enigma machine and sometimes I confuse my friends by talking about OTPs and meaning One Time Pads instead of One True Pairing XD

    1. Yay, another fan! (And yes, I think that’s probably accurate. XD)

      Ack, yes, codes!!! *gasp* You SAW one??? *flails* And oh my gosh, that’s hysterical! XD

  2. Oh, fun tag! Thanks for tagging me! That was a lot of people to tag. Lol! Codes are awesome!

    1. You’re welcome! Haha, yeah, no kidding. XD
      And yes, they’re so interesting!

  3. Ohh I hate hair on the back of my neck too haha. <3 <3 <3

    1. Ugh, it’s so annoying, isn’t it? XD <333

  4. Hey! This post was great! Also, I thought I also nominated you for the award too lol! I guess there's too many to count! And I TOTALLY GET NOT WANTING YOUR HAIR TO FALL ON YOU ASDFGJL UGHHH. And I'm kunda afraid of bugs too! This post was fun ������

    1. Thanks, Aditi! *cringes* Honestly, that’s very possible. I must have just missed it! Thank you for the award as well! :) And YES, THAT IS THE WORST RHHSHHDK.

  5. This was fun to read! For some reason I thought you were homeschooled, lol!

    1. Thanks, Jenna! And haha, a lot of people around the blogosphere are homeschooled, so that might be why. XD

  6. Fun post!! Thank you for tagging me, although I doubt I'll ever get around to it. *sheepish grin*

    Bugs are AWFUL. *shudders* Camel crickets and stink bugs are the WORST. WHY AM I EVEN TALKING ABOUT THEM??!!

    It's really interesting that you don't like sequels! Second-book syndrome is, unfortunately, quite common. I've come across it in series one too many times. :P

    1. You’re welcome - but yeah, I totally get it! :)

      *shudders* UGH UGH YES THEY ARE AWFUL.

      Yeah, second-book syndrome is rather disappointing, honestly. XD

  7. This was so much fun to read through! I feel like I can't have my hair down because it gets in my face AND I NEED to s e e. Softball is the coolest!

    1. Oh, man, I feel you - how do people with super-long hair survive? It’s impossible to see on a windy day!
      Oh, do you play softball? That’s so cool!

  8. Thanks for tagging me! I don't like sequels either.

    1. No problem, Skye! And aw, sorry that you suffer from second-book syndrome too!

  9. Thanks for the tag Nicole! Can't wait to do it. :)

    1. No problem! Can’t wait to see your answers - but don’t feel obligated at all! :)

  10. Isn't it weird how so very many bloggers are/were homeschooled?? Makes you wonder if somehow that had a hand in us being writers. *shrugs*

    Dude, bugs are usually fine as long as they leave me alone, but one flew into my mouth yesterday and THAT WAS NOT OKAY. xD

    I've heard about the Warriors series for ages, but I've never read them! Should I??

    1. Hmmm, yeah, that is interesting! Definitely something to think about.....

      EW EW EW THAT IS DISGUSTING. *shudders*

      I would recommend them! They’re not for everyone, and the later series’ aren’t as good, but the first series is really good! (I will warn you, the franchise is quite the tearjerker.... XD)

  11. Nicole!!! I saw your comment on my blog and obviously just had to swing by and check out yours. And let me just say...YOUR BLOG IS SO ADORABLE. I love it and I subscribed, so I’m here to stay. <3 <3

    1. Hey, Bree!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! And welcome! *showers you with chocolate* <3 <3
