The beauty of recognition by peers

Thank you Anne for nominating me to the Versatile Blogger Award!

Until this morning I had never heard of Anne Sture Tucker , but now she is my favorite person in the world! She nominated me , the Versatile blogger award. I am celebrating like I got an Oscar! For me the idea that someone likes what I write is huge. To top it I met my neighbor (I was strolling ,but she was running) She took the time to tell me that she reads my blog and connects with what I am writing.

In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself;

1.I have crossed the arctic circle on cross-country skis, when I participated in the Arctic Circle race 1997. The race is 160km I did not finish I was «rushed» to the hospital,in a dog sledge, with bleeding wound on both my heels after 120 km.

2.After my masters in Business administration the logical path was to study Reflexology.

3.I helped the singer  Morten Harket prepare a meatloaf penis for his fellow Aha member Magne Furuholmen´s batchelorparty. Harket would probably not remember but I was starstruck like the rest of the staff at Geysir in Keysersagate Oslo.

5.I  tried to read Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy for three years, then I gave up.

6.I love foreign films, Scandinavian films are a special favorite, my absolute favorite is «Tilsammans» by the Swedish director Lucas Moodysson.

7.When I travel you will find me in a bookstore, I have a problem with Art books. I buy too many.  The worst thing is my husband is not any better. Our challenge is  what to do with all the Art books we have.

The little voice in my head started when I was writing this, how important is it to get this award? Is it a real award? Well for one it is a peer award, that is valuable. It gives me the opportunity to nominate others and make them think about it. I am going to have a special column labelled AWARDS and put the Versatile blogger award logo there and be proud of the nomination and thankful to Anne to think of me.

I am thankful and I am glad to get the peer recognition!
