Versatile Blogger Award and Nominees


A week ago, as I was doing my routine blog surfing, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Oksana Mylchik of My Soap Factories had nominated SoapJam for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Thank you so much, Oksana! I am honored and humbled to have my blog considered for this award.  It’s like getting an early gift for my upcoming first soap anniversary, this April 3. 🎉

Congratulations to all the other wonderful bloggers who were also nominated by Oksana. To find out who they are, head over to Oksana’s blog!

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

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

      I’m touched to know that you enjoy reading my blog, Maya. I really enjoy reading yours, too. I don’t know what it is, but I find your blog very calming.

    Ah Silvia – congratulations! I think you know already how much I love your blog – and it’s clear that so many others do too!
    Thank you so much for nominating The Soap Mine, I am so chuffed that you’ve included it in your nominations :0).
    Now, I don’t know whether I’ve mentioned it (hahahahaha!!) but I’m moving soon (next week eeek!!) so its all a bit crazy at the moment, but I will post my nominations once it’s all calmed down a bit. I’m guessing we can’t duplicate? I’m a big fan of a few you’ve mentioned, but there are others that are new to me that I’m looking forward to checking out!
