Versatile Blogger Award

Little did I know that when I started my venture into the world of social media at the beginning of this year that others out their in the blogosphere could nominate you for awards. I was delighted to see today (30th April) that I have received a Versatile Blogger Award.

A special thanks to Sharing My Italy … The Blog  (30th April 2012) for this nomination (see post), I again received this award two weeks ago from Zen and Genki  (16th April 2012 (see post)) but hadn’t blogged about it at the time as I was trying to decide on what other blogs I should nominate, now certainly seems to be a good time to do this.

As per the rules of being nominated, I am to:

  •  Thank the person who gave me the award (Done!)
  •  Include a link to their blog (I’ve done that too – above!)
  •  Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award and include a link to their site.  Here they are:
  1. Dreams and Zeros
  2. Alex Mufatti
  3. Brian Gaynor Photography
  4. Sam Whelan Art & Technology
  5. Klaus Rossler Photography
  6. Observatorydiscoveratory
  7. Travelwithscott
  8. Clive Jennings Photography
  9. A New Yorker in Paris
  10. Postcards for Colorado
  11. iPhone Photographer
  12. The Blissful Adventurer
  13. Craig Hill
  14. The Thesis Whisperer
  15. Ramblings of this guy you know!

And finally – Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

  1. I enjoy TV shows such as Battlestar Galatica, NCIS, CSI & Star Trek to name a few.
  2. I lecture is subjects ranging from computer programming to graphics, video & multimedia.
  3. Signed up to SETI@Home over 12 years ago (during its first year of operation).
  4. Have a keen interested in distributed computing (hence SETI@Home).
  5. It’s only been in the past month I have build  a computer myself from scratch, done lots of upgrading in the past, never a complete build.
  6. Have been interested in Astronomy for as long as I can remember.
  7. Archaeology has always been of interest (perhaps due to watching Indiana Jones so much).

And finally to end this post with a spot of colour

  1. Great new Daniel! Congratulations.
    Even I didn’t know that such nominations were there…
    Hope that you win it! 🙂

    • Hi Scott, you are most welcome, as you can see from my post, I received the first nomination about 2 weeks ago, so had been thinking about it for a while. Then received another nomination today. Enjoy.

  2. Thank you so much for this my friend and I am always honored to be considered a versatile blogger. As I had previously received this I will accept in name alone and I hope you will not mind if I do not post another round of secrets 🙂 Thank you for this again and I look forward to our continued mutual support
    All the best,
    M

  3. Kudos, my friend! I was going to nominate you myself, but they beat me to it! (I was fortunate enough to win myself a few weeks ago–I’m just putting together my 15-list right now.)
