I’ve been given the Versatile Blogger Award!


This is not an April Fool’s Joke – I’ve actually been nominated for an award.  Thank you Peace, Love & Fabulous Things for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award!

First of all, I haven’t been nominated for an award since I was a kid.  Second of all, I can’t believe anyone cares what I have to say, especially enough to give me a shout out!

What is this Versatile Blogger Award? This is the way it works:

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  • Thank the person who gave you this award. Again, Thank you to the very clever and creative Rachel at Peace, Love & Fabulous Things
  • Include a link to their blog.
  • Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  • Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
  • Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

So, I will pay it forward.  I therefore nominate the following bloggers:

  1. TrishaDM‘s blog “At least we made it this far…”:  She’s a 4th yr Medical student passionate about Palliative Care and insightful on a daily basis
  2. Scout & Nimble:  Great looking blog with creative and stylish crafts  – she’s inspired me to attempt a few crafts.  Stay tuned, I’ll post results on my success…
  3. The Blumen Art Gallery:  a US woman’s musings on life in Germany
  4. Can You Stay for Dinner?:  another sensible woman who lost 135lbs and gained a healthy attitude towards food and exercise.  Great recipes and stories.
  5. Robotic Rhetoric:  very witty and insightful social commentary from an 18yr old in the UK who seems wise beyond his years
  6. A Detailed House:  great site for design lovers
  7. PaltryMeanderings of a Taller Than Average Woman:  a fellow tall woman’s take on life and society with a heavy dose of sarcasm…my kind of girl
  8. LeZoeMusings:  another mom and creative type who posts beautiful pictures, particularly of little house projects

I realize that’s only 8 bloggers.  I think 15 is kinda a random number and I should get to choose how many I want to nominate.  As I see more blogs I like, I will certainly give them a shout out….

And, in case you care, here are 7 things about myself you probably do not know:

  1. I wanted to be an architect growing up and preferred going on home tours to sleepovers
  2. I’ve played classical piano since I was a kid and have been desperately trying to learn jazz piano….it’s all in an attempt to loosen up, which I’m not good at
  3. If I had to do it all over again I’d be an entertainment reporter.  Who knew there’d be so many outlets for it?  E! News if you’re reading, we can arrange something!
  4. I haven’t lived in the South for over 10 years and I have lost any accent I ever had, but I miss it greatly!
  5. I saved my parents a ton of money by closing the gap in front 2 teeth by wrapping dental floss around them and pulling it tight every night.  You’re welcome Mom and Dad!
  6. I have won several belly flopping contests, but not since the age of 12
  7. I think it would be awesome to be known as Sexy Susan or Super Funny Susan, but I’m just Sensible Susan and I’m okay with that.

So thanks again Peace, Love & Fabulous Things for the award and thanks to everyone who has been reading the blog.  It’s been a really fun outlet, and I look forward to sharing more with you all!

Here’s your chance to tell me how you really feel – I’ve created a little poll to see what you’d like more of here at Sensible Susan.  Please take a minute to vote and feel free to comment with your own personal requests.  I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Congratulations! Keep plugging away at the whole jazz piano thing. I was classically/marching band trained on sax and jazz still alludes me. One day I will loosen up enough. At least now I can kind of pull it off if I copy another’s style. I’m glad I’m not the only one who struggles with the whole jazz thing.
