Versatile Blogger Award

I am honoured to have been Nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Jordan Zeitler owner of This is a great award which is for New and small blogs so they can get recognition of their hard work. It’s a great award and I’m so happy to be nominated.

I met Jordan when he reached out on social media looking for bloggers to contribute to a new fledgling online magazine, I was nervous to take him up on this worried that I wouldn’t be able to come up with enough things to write about or that my writing wouldn’t be good enough to be apart of such a great site. It has been a great journey and I have enjoyed every minute of it and learned so much that has helped me grow as a blogger.

What is My Blog about?

I used to blog on LiveJournal years ago when I was still in high school , but after taking a small break from it I never really had picked it back up again. At the start of  2016 I decided that I wanted to dip my toes back into the blogging world. I w as looking for a pass time that I would enjoy. So I finally made the decision to start my own blog. Thus came GardHub.  I am so amazed and thankful for all of the readers that have stopped by along the way to check out my writing and say hi.  Blogging can be so fulfilling and fun.

There are some quick steps to take once Nominated for this award:

  1. Show the award on your blog
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself
  4. Nominate 10 – 15 blogs of your choice
  5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination

SO to get this list started here are 7 things about me!

  1. I absolutely love animals. In particular cats and dogs.  I currently have 3 cats and they pretty much run the house 😛
  2. I have a lot of hobbies. I may not do every hobby every day or even every month but the list is long and I eventually get to it all in a year. Some of these include Scrapbooking, blogging, Beading etc.
  3. I was a late bloomer when it came to getting my licence growing up. I didn’t end up getting it until a few years ago.
  4. I have wanted a child ever since I was young. I just knew this was what I wanted, Faced with back to back miscarriages the road is very hard but I haven’t lost hope.
  5. I am a huge homebody. I would rather stay in then go out.
  6. My favourite season is fall when its not to hot and not too cold.  A light jacket does the trick on most days, without worrying about the sticky humidity or melting from the heat.
  7. I absolutely love Roller coasters. I am  HUGE thrill seeker.

Now for My Nominations:

  1. Awwnn, congratulations!
    It’s always a great feeling to be appreciated as new bloggers 🙂
    I can totally relate to your 5th fact, I do not like the outdoors one bit!
    And I love babies too, I pray you carry yours pretty soon — never lose hope, and thanks for sharing with us!

  2. Congrats to you! What an honor! I’m afraid of roller coasters but I haven’t given them a fair shot. I also like fall but fall is South Carolina is like summer in a lot of places. Jackets aren’t required.
