Many thanks to Alissa Ackerman for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award. Alissa’s blog, Behind the Cloth, touched me deeply. She is around the same age as my daughters and her insight into why we make the retail choices we do, intrigued me. I started re-tweeting her insightful posts and one day she purchased from my resale store! I felt that an honor since she obviously takes careful consideration of her fashion choices. Thanks, Alissa!
What is the Versatile Blogger Award?
Here’s a free fun fact about me outside the assigned seven: I love words. I love learning the etymology of a word, I love seeing how words have changed through generations and I love unique ways we use words. This is a challenge for me as I’m not necessarily an academic, so my dialogue should be casual and fun when I sometimes I get caught up on finding the perfect words to describe a product, activity, or service.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, versatile is defined as: “able to adapt or be adapted to many different functions or activities.” Being versatile is an important trait for bloggers to navigate a digital platform, create interesting content and be your own photographer. But the archaic definition of versatile is actually, “changeable; inconstant,” and THAT more closely describes my ability as a blogger. My life changes constantly with the demands of being a mother and wife. Our suburban life is often unstable and readily inconsistent.
So being nominated for this award is both an honor and a charge to keep my work versatile enough to meet the changeable circumstances thrown at us every day. Sharing these facts about myself as an author may help you better understand our "reckless" brand a little better.
