The Stylish Blogger Award

I have been presented with the award mentioned above.

What in the world is stylish about me, I don't know. But the extraordinary, fantastic Tony Benson saw it in me. *wink* You've presented me with my first award and shall remain a substantial part of my life. ...Terry, was it? Nah, I'm joking. I'm joking and it's not funny and it's early in the day.

Without further ado, I continue my acceptance post. So, in order to accept this award, I have to 1) Thank and link to my nominator, 2) Share seven things about myself, and 3) Present the award to ten recently discovered bloggers, and notify them.

So, seven things about me.

ONE: I'm thinking about querying overseas for an agent because the Australian market is not only tiny, but I'm also quite cross with its prices.

TWO: I'm an accelerated art student and I sketch, ink and paint my novel's characters, settings and some scenes. Check out the gallery link on the sidebar.

THREE: I have two jobs, one at a pool kiosk where I get $10 an hour and another where I make soccer videos for professional use at an academy.

FOUR: I live on the north shore of Sydney, Australia.

FIVE: I have a younger brother. He's called Tom. He's taller than me now.

SIX: I watch too much TV, including Doctor Who, Criminal Minds, Sherlock, Band of Brothers, Supernatural, Batman: the Animated Series, Nikita, Caprica, Big Bang Theory, etc. The list does indeed go on. (And here you thought I was born with these snarky references of mine) My family are movie buffs.

SEVEN: My favourite article of clothing is this hideously bright jacket my father got in Burma when he was a 20-year-old backpacker -> Is made of marijuana.

So, yeah, there's me. Now for my list of recently discovered bloggers who you should pay visits to.

1. Michelle at Aggghhhhh
2. Ellen at EllenFaith
5. Becca at The Bookshelf Muse
6. Trish at Word + Stuff
7. Lydia at The Sharp Angle
8. Misa at Misa Buckley

...And I really don't have another one.

Oh, you're lovely! Thank you.

A weed jacket? XD That's classic. Whenever I shop at Salvation Army I find jackets with...interesting things sewn in them.

Also, totally query over here in America! We (I) love you!

Ohhh, thank you for this :D I really appreciate it.


"You've presented me with my first award and shall remain a substantial part of my life. ...Terry, was it?"

Hahaha, this cracked me up. :D

I agree with you about Aussie book prices. I assume that's what you meant by 'prices' anyway. Hehe. It's just rude. I can't believe you can get a book for $10 or less and that's note even on sale!

Wow! I would LOVE to be able to sketch my characters. Sadly, my talents in that area are of the stick figure variety, lol.

Thanks for naming The Bookshelf Muse for this award! I'm so glad you visited and found our content useful. I see The Sharp Angle listed too--this is one of my most favorite blogs! I look forward to checking out the others.

Have a great week!

Ah, thanks for the award!

And I LOVE Doctor Who. :)

I'm not sure what stylish about my blog, but thank you for the award.

I also wish I were Gallifreyan :D

I love Sydney - I've been there 3 times now, and all in all I've spent about two and a half months there. I'm not a city dweller by nature, but Sydney is one of the few cities I would live in.

Not sure what an 'accelerated' art student is, but your art is fabulous. Love it!

Lydia Sharp at: January 13, 2011 at 11:38 PM said...

Thank you! And I so love this post. Me = film addict and former mega-wannabe actress. I even wrote to a few producers in L.A. when I was sixteen, telling them exactly why I should be their next starlet, even though I'd only ever acted in my high school play. Not surprisingly, they never replied.

You're so welcome guys.

"Accelerated" is just short for "I took my final school exams for art two years early". (:

Congratulations on the award!

Becca Puglisi at: January 14, 2011 at 7:03 AM said...

The marijuana jacket sounds quite stylish. If I could find a swim ring made out of Mountain Dew, I'd be all over it.

Thanks so much for nominating The Bookshelf Muse for this award. I've recently come back to blogging and have been making a list of blogs to check out. I'll definitely add the other 7 to my list!

Hate to say it,'ve got to do another one now:


Unless you already did one that anyway.
