I just received a nomination for the Kreativ Blogger award from Art Marketing Secrets Guru Daniel Tardent. Thank you Daniel!
Daniel and I met on Twitter! It really is a small world – I really recommend you go visit his content rich website Art Marketing Secrets, he really does know them all! Plus he is looking for guest bloggers, what a great opportunity!
Here is some background info on Kreativ Blogger from Daniel’s blog post:
Kreativ Blogger originated in May 2008 in a post by Huldas Verden. The Kreativ Blogger award comes with the following requirements:
1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
2. Copy the logo and upload it on your blog.
3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated. (Note – I cheated just a little with this one by using Twitter and Facebook to notify!)
7 things you might find interesting about me –
1. I love languages and used to be able to speak about 8 of them – English, French, German, could read Spanish, Italian, and speak minimal Arabic, Hebrew, Thai, in addition to the programming languages of html and php. Unfortunately if you don’t use it you lose it. Learn the root words and you can deal in any language.
2. I am a Trekkie, and was at one of the original conventions in Calgary in 74 (or so). I was 11 or 12. I think it was Nichelle Nichols, James Doohan and George Takei who were there. My idol is of course Leonard Nimoy.
3. I believe in reincarnation, energies beneath the surface, and channeling. I am certain one of my lives was during Henry the VIII’s reign, as well as late 1700s – early 1800s, both in England.
4. I love Shakespeare and his sense of humour – I like that he pokes fun at the characters and the characters don’t always know it. I am a great reader.
5. I do not suffer fools gladly, and have to remember that one’s stupidity and ignorance is not always on purpose. (my own too!)
6. I have no problem laughing at myself, as it prevents me from taking myself too seriously.
7. This was really hard for me to write and think of 7 interesting things. It took me almost an hour.
