Shine On Award

 

I won the Beautiful Blogger Award


Hi Everyone.

I am really pleased to have received the Beautiful Blogger Award.  My first ever blogging award, it feels fantastic.

Dorothy Stacy from dorothystacy.wordpress.com  awarded it to me, she is a fellow writer and has some interesting posts that you may want to check out.

Apparently I should be passing this award on to 7 other people and I have been taking my time to contemplate who to give it to but as I don’t have a huge list I feel I have fallen short at concluding only 5.  I do however believe that these 5 are of good quality and are of people who I follow that take the time out of their day to blog regularly, so they very much deserve the award.  First I will tell you a few facts about myself that you may or may not know.

  1. I have 4 guineapigs that live with me in 2 indoor cages, they are called Peaches, Snuggles, Daisy and Cinnamon.
  2. I have been a presenter on Hospital Radio since 1995 and I currently present a Dreamboat show on Hospital Radio Exeter, on a Monday evening, 10pm-11pm.
  3. I have been made redundant twice during my 15 year career in retail and each time I have managed to successfully work my way back up the career ladder and I have got another blog called beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com  to help others who have been made redundant, to get back into work.
  4. I have my own website called quirkybooks.net  that is currently about me and my writing but I am intending in the future to change it into an e-book shop to sell my own work.
  5. I now have an illustrator for my debut children’s picture book and hopefully it should be released as an e-book before the end of the year.
  6. I prefer to use a Mac rather than a PC, as I find it better to work with the large amount of applications I use, although I can also work on a PC.
  7. I am a student at present and I am currently studying an IAG Level 4 Diploma. (Information, Advice and Guidance.)  I got my 10 modules on the 4th of May and all work has to be completed by the 25th of June.
  8. I am going to the Coaching Academy in London on the 9th and 10th of June to get a certificate in Personal Coaching.
  9. I am currently studying Adobe Indesign at Exeter College.
  10. I am doing a self-employment course with Womens Development Unlimited to help me start up my own business.
  11. By the time I have finished all of my courses I will be launching a new website called beatredundancyblues.com that I am currently developing and I will be able to be a Redundancy and Unemployment Specialist Support Advisor, Coach and Trainer and will be able to A.C.T for you.

If you want to know anything else, just ask.

In the meantime, I have the very important honour of giving the Beautiful Blogger Award to 5 other lucky bloggers, so here goes:

  1. margekatherine.com
  2. hurtlingtowards60.wordpress.com
  3. talinorfali.wordpress.com
  4. ilovegetttingupinthemorning.wordpress.com
  5. lesleycarter.wordpress.com

If you have any recommendations as to which other 2 blogs I could give the award to, then please let me know.

Write soon.
