Nominated for a Beautiful Blogger Award!

Wouldn’t you know it? There’s yet another blogger award making the rounds, and I’ve picked up a nomination. And it comes from a new follower to this page, one who is equally if not more prolific than I am. So my thanks to Maarit-Johanna of Literature and Culture for the nod. May you musings on literature, the arts, travel and culture continue to inspire!

So… as always there are rules to this award. Four to be specific:

1. First up, thank the person who nominated you:
That’d be you, Mrs. Maarit-Johanna. Thanks a bunch!

2. Post the award image to your page:
Did that!

3. Tell seven facts about yourself:
-I love the smell of fresh air! City living is fine, but there better be plenty of green spaces to provide that scent of dense foliage and clean air

-I love cats and dogs. I grew up with the plenty of the former, but my wife’s love of the latter rubbed off on me. Now we need to get a big enough place to accommodate a few of each.

-I love to cook, bust suspect I might have only a few moves: Pasta, stir fry, stew and barbeque. But enough variations on these basic areas make it seem like I got lots of moves!

-I have a notorious passion for beer! I hope to one day be able to brew my own, and not from some sissy homebrew operation. I’m talking my own barley roasting, my own mash tun, and my own hops grown right out the back.

-Four books have inspired me more than any others: 1984; Guns, Germs and Steel; The God That Failed; and Dune. I’ve read plenty of good books, and quite a few great ones. But these ones stand alone as the one’s that blew my mind!

-My favorite colors appear to be green and black. Of all my clothes, the vast majority are one or the other.

-I’ve studied Taekwon-Do for a good twenty-four years and can’t really imagine life without it. I’ve gone for short periods without any training, and honestly felt like I something major was missing.

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers:

Mark Sackler

Vinny Lanni

Tazein Mirza Saad

Casey Sheridan

    1. Actually, I think this will be last one I will be getting. The process becomes so tedious after awhile: thank someone, talk about yourself, nominate a slew of other people. Oi! I wish you were on WordPress though, I’d nominate you for all of these!

  1. Congrats Matt 🙂 and thanks for including my name in the list 🙂
    Your blog’s the most informative one that I read in WordPress ! Keep writing 🙂

  2. You certainly deserve a blog award. I have a hard time keeping up with reading your blog, but I have enjoyed them all.

    Thank you for including me! I was quite surprised to see my name listed. This would be my first blog nomination. Thank you again. 🙂

  3. I was completely tickled to see my name on your list! In fact, I had to click on it to make sure it was really me! Haha. But really, you made my day, thanks so much.
