The Versatile Blogger Award

I have just received "The Versatile Blogger" award from Donna Hole. Thank you, Donna!
I'm glad that someone finally recognized me as a versatile blogger. And by versatile, I mean blogging about a bunch of random topics that only vaguely have anything to do with reading or writing books.

Now to accept this world renowned, prestigious award, I have to:
1) Thank and link back to the person who gave me this award. Thank you Donna Hole!
2) Tell everyone 7 things about myself
3) Pass this award to 15 other bloggers
4) Contact the bloggers that I've picked and tell them about the award

So here are the 7 things about myself that you may not know:
1) I attempted to write my first novel in the summer between 8th and 9th grade. I got to around 60 pages before I got bored with it.

2) I'm addicted to watching web shows like I Heart Vampires and Little White Lie.

3) I don't believe in the Roswell incident, but I do believe that there is life on other planets. I'm not talking about intelligent aliens. I'm talking about alien trees or alien bacteria. Not all life has to be technologically advance.

4) I want to take a trip to London someday

5) I have a phobia of china dolls. Actually, I'm afraid of any inanimate object that looks like a human with staring eyes that never blink. But china dolls are the scariest.

6) I love chocolate. And I also love coconut. So yay for Almond Joys!

7) I want to write a book, but I'm really lazy.

And now to pass on this award to 15 other bloggers (I have such a big heart. It's even bigger than a whale's):

Kiersten (Kiersten Writes)
Jess (Big Deal to Me)
Liz (8 Bit Words)
Julia (Writing Jewels)
Clarissa (Listen to the Voices)
Chelle (The Prairie Library)
Chazz (Chazz Hart)
Stephanie (Natural/Artificial)
Heather (Little Squeed)
Petty (Pen and Paper)
Kah Woei (The Books of My Life)
Misty (Writer's Block)
Missie (The Unread Reader)
Natalie (Between Fact and Fiction)

So thanks again to Donna Hole for passing on this award to me. And a gigantic, whale-size THANK YOU to all of you who read my blog!

John Smith


  1. Congrats on the award, and thanks for thinking of me! What a nice way to start the week. :)

    #4 - hope you can change that "someday" to "soon"! I also hope to visit there someday.

  2. Congrats and thanks! :) I love your 7 things, but hate coconut....

    I'm so excited!

  3. Squees! Thank you.

    London is amazing, especially Bath. You should totally visit. As for writing your book, John, get on the ball because I want to read it. Set yourself up with a small goal. I page a day, and in under a year, you will have a book!

    P.S. Almond Joys Rock!

  4. Thank you so much, John. It means a lot. I want #4 too.


  5. Your revelations made me smile. I love almond joys!!!!! And I, too, am a lazy writer. But it looks like you're doing pretty well! You're 100% done!!!

    Congratulations on the award, too. I've been away a few weeks and am trying to get caught up. Whew!

  6. Wow! You should get to London it is quite a city.
    As for the Almond Joys, don't do that to a person the sweetie shops are shut :)

  7. hehehe you passed onto me an award? Thanks! Hope you've had a productive week and a fun weekened planned. I want to write a book too and I'm in the process. My thing is I get discouraged easy and don't always find the time to devote to it. It's uncanny but I always seem to hit 15000 words and stop. I just gotta keep busy on :) Good luck
