The Versatile Blogger Award

Before writing this post I did some reading to understand a bit more about ‘The Versatile Blogger Award’ and to get some ideas for my post.  In doing so I visited the site of the award administrator.  It is interesting to note that the administrator has not really been active for over a year and yet the award continues.  I think this is a nice reflection of the support within the blogging community.

When I first started blogging I noticed, with envy, a few people receiving this award and I hoped in time that someone would nominate my blog.  So I would like to thank A Dating Dad for nominating me.  I enjoy reading about a guy’s perspective on dating.

The rules of the award are fairly simple:

  • Share 7 interesting facts about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers for the award


Well it seemed simple until I started trying to think if interesting facts that would not give away my identity.  This is my list of facts which you may find interesting:

  1. I have a PhD in a technical discipline that is traditionally male dominated.  Surprising then that I can’t seem to meet any potential boyfriend candidates.
  2. As the introduction to my blog states I live in South Africa.  However I lived in the UK for 10 years which provided a few good travel opportunities.
  3. I once went on a rock climbing holiday in Calpe, Spain.
  4. I have abseiled off Table Mountain.
  5. I used to be able to tell people that we have 2 1/2 cats because our neighbor’s cat spent so much time at our house.
  6. I love roller-coasters
  7. I have family scattered across 4 continents

The next challenge is picking 15 bloggers to nominate.  My time is limited so I only follow a small number of blogs.  Primarily dating blogs.  Rather than picking blogs I rarely read I have settled on the following 8 bloggers who I enjoy reading:

  1. Back in Stilettos Again
  2. Single Girl Swiping
  3. Life and Dreams of an Unchained Heart
  4. Unleashing the Cougar
  5. Blessed with a Star on the Forehead
  6. Sensuality, Sex and Something else
  7. KalifornicationX
  8. ann st vincent

  1. Wow that is so sweet – thank you! I have to admit that, as Jad from Sex, Sensuality and Something Else has written about before, I don’t take part in the awards thing. I am honoured though that you nominated me! And well done for having the PhD in a male-dominated field.

  2. Ah thank you and sorry I have only just spotted this now!
    It’s always nice to know that someone is reading and I’m not just rambling off to myself!
    I will of course take part in the post as I think it’s a lovely way to spread the word about other bloggers, which thanks to this post I now have some more blogs to look into!
