Versatile Blogger Award

ThompsdJames and I extend our thanks to Michelle Joelle of Soliloquies for nominating us for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Be sure to check out her site as it always contains insightful posts on writing and human nature.  As of now, it includes some beautiful pictures of winter.

Versatile Blogger Award

Here is a short list of the rules:

  • 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.

We have decided to split the seven questions among ourselves with Thomps taking the first four and me the last three.  Here goes:

1: Thomps has a son named Leonidas who is just learning to walk. (I will absolutely be teaching him to say “MOΛΩN ΛABE!” when he starts talking.)

Battle of Thermopylae

2 Is really getting a PhD in Chemistry.

3: Judges a novel contest (see Athanatos Christian Ministries’ Novel Contest).

4: Was variously called The Moose and The Saxon and The Enforcer for similar reasons in college–that of being big, loud and a bit clumsy…

Dr. Minaev at Kostroma Agricultural Academy

Now for M. Otaku’s turn:

5: Was known in college for telling anecdotes–most of which concerned General Nathan Bedford Forrest of Civil War fame.


6: Owns four swords–all replicas: a Viking sword, Norman sword, Spanish broadsword of the late middle ages, and a Great Katana (aka O-Katana).  I really want to own this sword next:

7: Ovid is my favorite Latin writer.

Well, that suffices for the information part!  Now I need to nominate fifteen people.  (Yes, I’m hogging the nominations all to myself:

1.  Terpsicore and Melpomene of the Egotist’s Club

2.  Lady Blade Blog

3.  Book Lion

4.  Kathryn Hemmann of Contemporary Japanese Literature

5.  Suburban Banshee of Aliens in this World

6.  Appropriant of Perpetual Morning

7.  Raging Biblio-holism

8.  Sword Cross Rocket

9.  Tobby of The Overlord Bear’s Den

10. Phineas Fahrquar of Public Secrets

11.  Illogicalzen

12.  Chibiotaku010

13.  Genkinahito’s Blog

14.  Gentlemanotoku’s Anime Circle

  1. I love your seven things! No wonder this blog is so cool. I can’t wait to check out your recommendations. 🙂

    • Why, thank you! I’m glad that you enjoyed these facts. My partner and I have been friends since college, and we enjoy writing for this blog. My recommendations are a grab bag of literary, anime, and political blogs. Hope that you like a few of them!

    Thank you for nominating my blog for the versatile blogger award! I’ve also enjoyed reading your blog for the past months. Unfortunately, my blog’s rules don’t allow me to participate in awards like this, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate it nevertheless.

  4. I feel like God has worked His wonders again (Well, actually, I believe that he always does)…Thank you very much for the nomination, Thomps and M. Otaku! I have been through a freaking distressful (’cause there’s also positive stress, you know) week, which was fortunately dealt with by about two hours of freaking vigorous dancing today. This nomination made me feel more hopeful and energetic! Thank you very much again!

    Now then, I feel like doing a funny dance in my mind while releasing the energy in me by doing homework, writing creative works…and also screaming in text form. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    And I need to know more about this award and I also need to make a post about this, too. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    • I’m glad that this award brightened up your day! I try to keep in mind that God humbles, but He also exalts when I myself am feeling low.

      May your weekend be as fun as your week was stressful!

  5. […] when I found out that the bloggers of Aquila et Infans–medievalotaku and thompdjames–nominated me for (and at the same time, awarded me) The Versatile Blogger Award! Freaking nuts! Again, I thank you two very […]
