Weird Random Favourite Media Mentors Love Awards

Published by at 6:50 pm under awards,memes

Okay – weird title for a blog post, but I have to catch up on some memes and awards.

7 Weird Facts

Firstly the lovely Cellobella (who I was supposed to meet up with when she was in Sydney recently, but it was unfortunately rotten timing :( ) who tagged me with 7 weird facts. (I’m totally with you on point six though CB. That and SHOPPING – ugh).

Problem is I’m not weird at all I couldn’t be bothered trying to figure out what is weird and what is normal, so I’m going to pass on that πŸ˜‰ I suppose I could have asked my family to help me out…

If you are reading this and think it would be fun for a post, consider yourself tagged.

7 Random Facts

Lightening has tagged me for 7 random facts, which I did a while back (some of these could possibly double as weird).

5 Favourite Posts / Archive Posts

Lin from Telling It Like It Is has tagged me for 5 Favourite Posts, also done previously.

My Media Week

Bettina, one of my newer blogging buddies, has tagged me about My Media Week. Let’s see:

Books – nope.

TV/Video – CSI, “Because I said so” (quite funny) and To Kill a Mockingbird (my daughter just finished reading the novel). Oh, and a bit of cricket (what I could see peeking through my fingers).

Music – Guy Sebastian, “The Memphis Album” and Ultimate Santana (birthday presents).


Be The Blog

Be the Blog

Trish awarded me this because she thinks my blog is informative and also Kelley who brazenly bestowed this beautiful bit of blog bling – “Be the Blog” – because she says I crack Her up (yes, obviously we chat off blog).

I’d like to give this award to:


(ah, I see Sue and Andrew have already been awarded this – well never mind)

Blogging Mentor Award

Blogging Mentor Award

Sue had graciously given me this Blogging Mentor Award. This award is “…to recognise and thank those who help us on our path to blogging, be it encouraging and helping us to start blogging or helping us to be the best we can, once we have started”. Sue writes:

Unlike most awards, it is not necessary to have received it yourself to be able to pass it on to others. It is free for anyone to use; anyone who wishes to say thank you to their own blog mentors. All that I ask is that you include a mention and link to my Blog Mentor Page. This way I can compile lists of those who have been generous enough to give the award and those who have received it, giving them recognition myself by some backlinks.

I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers who have informed, inspired, motivated or assisted me along the way:

Andy Beard
Gavin Heaton
Liz Strauss
Alister Cameron
Craig Harper

Spread the Love Award

Spread the Love Award

Lightening passed on this lovely “Spread the Love Award“. I’d like to pass it on to:

Kin (whose 9 pound 4 ounce baby girl made a safe arrival on Sunday morning)
Cerebral Mum

Sorry it’s taken me so long to catch up with these memes and awards, and thank you all for including me. Feel free to give me a kick up the send me a quick note if I missed a tag. And sorry if you’ve already been tagged.

    Me? A mentor bling? Are you out of your pretty little head? Sneaking some of your baby girls pain meds? BTW how is she???

    Thanks babe. Got so much bling flinging my way at the moment I am feeling rather Ghetto. And honoured.

    It’s like the Grammys, only without the terrible singing. A great improvement in my opinion! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks Meg – I do not mind receiving the award twice at all.

    When I saw the word Underbelly I thought you were talking of a Melbourne Belly Dancing troupe of that name :-) Not that I have ever shimmied myself but a friend of mine took it up with a passion. She is now dancing in Istanbul!

    Anonymum, Leigh, Sueblimely, CB – you are most welcome πŸ˜€

    Kelley – LMAO. No meds, I’m completely rational. Mentoring comes in many different forms – inspiring, motivating, guiding, leading by example. You most definitely fit the role.

    DD is doing well thanks, off to the specialist today.

    Lin – no problem (I lose track myself)!

  9. Andrew Boydon 13 Feb 2008 at 4:50 pm
