So I’ve called it the “Valentine Stylish Blogger Awards”.

I’m giving this on valentine’s day with all my love for every supportive, impressive and amazing blogger out there.

After hitting 1,000 hits and getting lots of fantastic support and sound advice from blogville, I got the Stylish Blogger Award! It can’t get better than this. Awesome! Thanks to Working Tech Mom who is such an inspirational woman, full of good humor and unbelievably smart. She recently began Ouch, Fired after she was released from her job- talk about moving onwards and most definitely UPWARDS. I’m glad I got to “meet” her here. Enjoy her blogs!

As she described in her post, the award comes with four basic tasks to be completed:

Present seven things about yourself
Name about a half-dozen bloggers you think deserve the award
Contact those people
Create a link back to the person who gave you the honor

Here are seven (seven, wow- that’s a lot) things you might not know about me:

1. I quit pretty much everything that I’m not EXCELLENT at. This has included playing the clarinet, piano, and tuba. It also includes lace-making and volleyball. I’m sorta hoping that it’s not going to be the same story with golf. To be fair, I managed to continue writing even though I’m very average at that!

2. Overall, I’m very good with people and get on well with every type of person. But once in a while, I meet someone who doesn’t like me or who I can’t figure out. This really bugs me and I can stay fixated, analysing why I don’t seem to get on with this particular person. It’s unfortunate because sometimes, I let it drown out the other scores of people that like me a lot.

3. I’m a process-junky. If you want me to be effective, put a good process in place. I like to know what I’m doing and plan well ahead. So if you really want me to lose my balance remove all the processes or even worse, set up meaningless processes that everyone ignores. Arrgh!

4. I wanted to read Accountancy but studied Engineering instead. I’m great with numbers and I have been known to keep up to 25-digit numbers in my head at a time. I know my credit AND debit card numbers off by heart.

5. I have between 15 to 20 handbags. And I make no apologies for it :).

6. It’s only in recent years that I have become comfortable in my own skin. I cannot underestimate the need to love yourself the way you are. It affects the risks you take, how people treat you and whether you regret those things that made you happy even if on hindsight they may have not been the best of ideas.

7. I don’t understand people who are not ambitious. I realise not everyone is like me but gee, how does it feel not to wish yourselves ahead? It must be more relaxing, less frustrating and probably requires little or no fire-power. I’m green with envy.

Oh no, here come the Bloggers
