For Me?

I can't believe it!  The lovely Joanne Brothwell gave me a blog award.  It's my first and I am so touched.  I'm touched by all of you who choose to read along with me each week, actually.  So first of all, thank you!

Now, about that award... It's called the Versatile Blogger award and it comes with a few rules.
1.  Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason!  (In no particular order...)
4.  Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

Seven random things you may or may not have wanted to know about me:
1.  The only seafood I eat is canned tuna (in tuna salad).  Anything else is a no-go.
2.  I'm deathly allergic to escargot.
3.  I'd go crazy in my office if there was no music on.
4.  Life's too short to drink diet soda.
5.  I started law school before turning 21, which made the welcome-to-law-school pub crawl exponentially less fun.
6.  If I had one wish and I couldn't be for anything sappy (like good health for my family or world peace), I'd ask for an amazing singing voice.  Not only would I be happier, but so would everyone who's ever been subjected to my singing.
7.  I love foreign travel but my husband is afraid of flying. Can you say, vacation conflicts?

And without further ado, here are the 15 blogs that I'd like to recommend to you:
1.  Larissa of Larissa's World
2.  Sheri of Writer's Ally (even though she's already received this one once, she's still awesome)
3.  J.A. Souders of Angels and Demons and Portals, Oh My!
4.  Liz Czukas of her self-titled blog
5.  Nikki Katz of her self-titled blog
6.  Melina at Reading Vacation
7.  Laci Smith of Writing My Chaos (for 1 reason, we have the same cool blog template)
8.  Alex of The Gartner Gazette
9.  Renae of The Siren's Song
10.  Sara B. Larson of her self-titled blog
11.  Shelli of Market My Words
12.  Ezmerelda at Dreamz of a YA Writer
13.  Some awesome California ladies at YA Know
14.  Julie at Writing and Blogging Between Carpools
15.  Mandy and Suzi at Writing Out the Angst
BONUS: 16. A.E. Rought of It's All in the Genes
I hope you check out all of these amazing bloggers.  Some of them have legions of followers, some (like me) only have a few, but they all have something worthwhile to say.
