Wow!  Roda, thank you so much for nominating me for this award.  You have such a great blog that is witty and full of joy.  It is not every day you hear of someone who absolutely loves their life and is talented enough to describe it so well.

What is the Versatile Blogger Award?

Bloggers nominate other bloggers who they believe deserve recognition for their high-quality standard of writing, the uniqueness of content, passion, and love displayed throughout the site and to top it off, amazing photos!

Rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and share their link.
  2. Nominate up to 10 bloggers for the award and provide links to their blogs. Also, inform them about the nomination.
  3. Reveal 7 facts about yourself that your readers may not know.

Seven facts about mainepaperpusher, otherwise known as Linda

  1.  I adore animals…some say more than people.  Those who say that are wise.
  2. I have two Great Danes, two cats, a lot of fish, and a long-suffering husband to keep me amused.  Notice where the husband comes in…see #1.  Just kidding!!!
  3. I live in the middle of nowhere.
  4. I’m a vegetarian
  5. I like boxy cars…we have a Kia Soul named Kevin and a Honda Element named Bob Watson.
  6. My idea of fun is hanging out with friends online from all over the world.  Wordpress is a great way to do that and we get to write, too!
  7. I am currently trying to reorganize my house.  It’s going to be a multi-year project…no lie.  Be gentle with me when I start a sentence with “I’m in a muddle…”

Here are my nominees:

Just a quick note before I begin the list.  These are folks whose blogs I think you should visit.  If they choose to carry this award on, that’s great.  If not, that’s fine, too.  There are times when I haven’t been able to complete such things, so no guilt here!  However, it is a great way to learn about new blogs that our peers appreciate.  And now for the list, in no particular order:


I hope this finds you all well and happy.  Keep writing and I’ll see you here when you do!

Hugs to all!

    1. I have two and one is a puppy who I would love to give away only when he is very very bad! Of course, he is very very bad on a daily basis! Oh, just wanted to let you know that I’m not sure how the font sizes became wonky on this. My preview looks fine. Oh well, I guess the blog gods have their own rules!

  2. Just a small tip: when you tag other bloggers try to link to a post instead of their main page. They’ll receive a notification then and will know about you tagging them right away! 🙂

    1. Thanks for the tip! I’m really new at this so I’m not sure exactly what you mean “link to their main page.” I thought I had responded to one of their replies in a post, but even that seemed like a weird way to do it. I’d love some tips! I need all the help I can get!

      1. You linked to their home page but it’s better to link to one of their posts (it will create a pingback which counts as a comment, they will receive a notification for that)

              1. Sounds like we’ve started around the same time! 😀 And yes, I agree with you, the community on WP is very supportive. It’s like a miracle. I’ve only seen one grumpy grump in the community pool a few weeks ago but everyone ignored him :’D

                  1. I don’t know 😀 especially in the community pool where everyone is just sharing their new posts etc but okay, everyone may have a bad day!

  3. #1 all the way! I looove animals! Don’t worry, my husband comes after the animals on the list as well… hahaha I also love that you name your cars and I’m totally jealous that you have a Honda Element because if I could buy a boxy car, it would be that one!
