There must be something in the water bloggers are drinking because I can’t imagine being nominated for another award that has anything to do with me or my blog. But I’ll digress and take the compliment. I have been nominated for a third award called The Versatile Blogger Award by Melanie at Fraser’s Fun House.
Fraser’s Fun House is not your average parenting blog. Though she describes herself as a new blogger, there is nothing nascent or budding in the way she engages you and delightfully brings you into her world of fun. She knows what she is doing. From reading her blog, I wonder how she has any energy left over to be so enthusiastic about life. She describes in this post about a music class that “is a fabulous, noise-filled session.” When I hear the words “noise-filled”, I run the other way. Not Melanie. She has a passion for life that I would love to have, and she definitely has more patience than I. Please check out her sincere and genuine blog about life, parenting, and finding great shopping deals.
So, what is the Versatile Blogger Award?
Blogger awards are a fun way for bloggers to show appreciation for other bloggers and their content. Blogging is harder work than it may look like from the outside, so it means the world when we are shown in any way that we are appreciated! The Versatile Blogger Award celebrates high quality, unique, and loving content. When nominated, the blogger can choose to accept the nomination and pass it on to 15 bloggers that they believe deserve a nomination as well.
The rules to accept this award are simple:
- Thank the person who nominated you, and link their blog. There are millions of blogs out there, and somebody chose yours!
- Nominate 15 bloggers to keep spreading the appreciation.
- Share 7 facts about yourself.
7 Facts About Becca and Missing In Sight
- I truly believe that in a perfect world, the one thing I think everyone should do at least once in their life is to see a therapist or other mental health professional. I think if people had more insight into themselves and understood how their behavior impacts them and others, they would feel a lot happier about life and about themselves.
- I am a former high school English teacher. I taught reading and college-level writing for almost four years to 9th and 11 graders. At the same time, I was also in school for my Masters degree, coached cross country, and advised the Journalism Club.
- I shop almost exclusively at thrift/bargain stores. You would be amazed at the great name-brand bargains you can find for under $3.00.
- I have skin cancer. My dermatologist found more on me this past week. The type of skin cancer I have is Squamous Cell Carcinoma. It is the second most common type. Though it can spread to other parts of the body, with early diagnosis and treatment, it is highly curable. I faithfully go to my dermatologist every six months for a full body scan to determine if more cancer has developed.
- I have a flair for throwing parties. I love it when an anniversary, graduation, or a just-because party is planned because I’m really good at selecting themes, coordinating flowers, plates, napkins, food, etc.
- I am the biggest baby when I am sick. I milk it for all it’s worth. I complain, whine, moan, and get on everybody’s nerves, including my own. I admit with embarrassment that , though I hate being sick, I cry when I’m on the mend. I have no idea why, but I very sad.
- I had my own YouTube channel a couple of years ago that focused on makeup. I love makeup, mostly high-end products, which has gotten me in trouble before. I rarely buy makeup anymore since I still have so much, but there is no greater feeling for me than to buy a shiny new eyeshadow palette, a brand new foundation, or a glistening lipstick. I know it is silly and corny, but makeup makes me giddy.
- My mother-in-law gave me a teddy bear seventeen years ago when I had surgery. I still have that teddy bear and sleep with it every night.
- I think growing older is underrated. While I would love to be 29 again, growing older does have some benefits, such as more wisdom, not caring about the opinions of others, and fitting in your own skin better.
- I have many favorite songs, but one I listen to the most is by Evenescence called “Missing”. The performer asks repeatedly in the song, “Isn’t someone missing me?” I’m drawn to this song because it garners the same idea that is developed around our name of “Missing In Sight”. Though you might see us in person, does anyone “miss” us?
