I don’t normally do awards, but how can I say ‘no’ to the deliciously delectable
Shehanne Moore https://shehannemoore.wordpress.com/ who awarded me the above badge.
I think she is trying to coax me out of my lovingly glued together shell of obscurity with a sharp, but surgically accurate pin, to extradite a stubborn garlic-sauced snail.
She has been very supportive of my blog and my ink-splattered mutterings. So thank you very much Shehanne and thank you for the award.
In the spirit of this support, I would like to nominate ten other fellow bloggers for the Epically Awesome Award, whom have also been very supportive to me (Can I only have ten??).

Now the five questions:
- What made you choose your current blogging platform?
Hmmmm! I wanted to connect with other people across the Earth. I think we all have a story or stories to tell and the Internet is one of the greatest achievements of Mankind. To be able to connect to another person 10,000 miles away in what is near as damn it, normal conversational speaking speed is phenomenal.
- Introduce yourself and tell us about your blog.
I am a re-blog fanatic. I love to pass ideas, stories and ‘this might help’ tips on to everyone in the hope that they will find it interesting and pass on to others.
I believe that the Internet can bring the planet together. How many times have you read a posting and it’s made you smile or think differently or helped you when you felt alone? They can be from someone up the road, or a different continent, but they’re available because of the Internet.
My bits of scribble are just the sesame seeds sprinkled sparingly in your club sandwich. Sometimes you don’t mind them, but other times, they annoyingly stick in your teeth :0). Also there are so many great writers out there, it’s quite daunting to put your own stuff out there in the ether.
- Are you a once in a while blogger, or a daily one?
I read WordPress.com every day. I ‘re-blog’ and ‘like’ posts each day, but I personally don’t ‘blog’ every day. This is probably the longest of my blog posts
- Do you wish to publish and if so, what type of book?
Gosh – who doesn’t want to be ‘discovered’ and have your stories in print? I write poetry (prose not rhyming), short stories, long stories and stories for children, so any of those. I’ve only put some short stories and poems on my blog up to now though.
- What is your favourite thing to do besides write?
I’m a bookworm. My favourite thing is to curl up on the couch with a pile of unread books and a big mug of tea or a nice glass of Chardonnay and snuggle down for a binge read.
The other thing I love is being in a forest, surrounded by trees and wild plants. I don’t even care if it’s raining as I love the rain. The sound of rain on the leaves or roof just lulls me to a peaceful place.
Hahaha – aren’t you glad there were only 5 questions?
If you want to take part in the Epically Awesome Award, you need to:
Show the Award badge on your blog.
Say who nominated you, link back to their post (thank you kindly)
Name 5-10 others you would like to nominate (if you don’t want to take part – that is perfectly fine)
Answer the five questions above
Thanks Shehanne – These are my 500 lines of ‘I promise not to do this again’
Love, Kate xx
