Am I Versatile?

Well, yes I believe I am.  So does Debbie M. Lewis who nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award because she’s enjoyed my posts.  I checked out the other names she’d selected and was impressed by their work.

So how does this work?  I tell you 7 random things about myself and then find 15 other bloggers that I find interesting.  Here goes.

  1.  I had a nasty skateboarding accident when I was 50 years old and that was 18 years ago.
  2. My first grandchild is due in January.
  3. I bought a 4/3 wetsuit (the water is getting chillier and the 3/2 just doesn’t cut it) last weekend and haven’t gotten it in the water yet.
  4. I love editing iPhone images with Snapseed.
  5. I’m working on a short fiction piece about surfing.
  6. I love steamed brussel sprouts with grated sharp cheddar.
  7. I’ve been watching videos of Stand Up Paddleboarders riding waves in the open ocean.  It’s called down wind paddle boarding.  I’d like to give it a try.

My seven random things handled, now onto the blogs I enjoy and why.  I’m supposed to list 15 but, frankly, I’m new to this and don’t have more than 5 that I follow who also have fewer than 200 followers.

  1.  Real Surfers.  Love his artwork and edgy posts.
  2. Planting an Oar, the view of American life from a transplanted Brit.  Insightful, charming, educational, and sometimes just a hoot to see the differences through her eyes.
  3. Scribbling Parrot for great graphics and interesting posts about coffee and life.
  4. Party of Five for her heartfelt posts, flowing narrative style and thoughtful comments.
  5. The Turtle Way because she surfs, she’s curious about the blogging community and turns up all kinds of interesting things to write about.

I look forward to hearing 7 random things about each of you and then please pass along the love to your favorite fifteen bloggers.

    1. To me there’s no need to participate if it doesn’t work. I’m new to blogging and took it as an opportunity. I enjoy your posts. You’re not a surfer? Oh no. I saw the person on the board and assumed it was you. Never too late. I am a beginner stand up paddleboard surfer and started just after my 68th birthday. But I did surf for most of my life until 8 years ago.


      1. Thank you!
        Ah! I wish …I think the photo you’re mentioning is Kolohe Andino (USA) on the MocheRipCurlSeries in Peniche last Oct. during the WorldSurfLeague pre-finals . I did windsurf eons ago , but I have this dream that I will actually be able to surf someday – maybe I should start with paddleboarding and progress from there.
        Ah! and you are an inspiration as you found a way to overcome your joint problems and still be able to enjoy the sea and the waves 🙂
