An Inspirational kind of Day

 

I am quite unsure how to begin…some bright spark might say ‘how about from the start?’ I could not agree with such a hypothetical response more than I already do…so, with that said…

…It is always amazing to be recognised for some reason or another, whether that be because your writing has touched someone on a level that was either spiritual, emotional, mental or another kind of perspective. Whether it be because someone agreed with what you wrote. Whether it is simply be because the other person in general likes what you created…either way, a positive reaction is always a very welcome one.

On that note, you may take one look at what I hath written and wonder ‘what is it this guy is saying?’ Allow me to quickly move on to the point of this post’s articulation; Very recently I was nominated for the Inspiring Blogger Award. I am very thankful to All World Issues for the nomination, whose blog can be found at the following link; http://allworldissues.com/.

Now, there are 7 things that I need to state to the individual who nominated me. So, without further ado, they are as follows;

One: I have a blog of soporific love poetry that can be found at this link: http://totalovrdose.wordpress.com/. Additionally you can find me on Twitter where I go by the username DerekChilds1. I know, I probably shouldn’t be using my seven points to promote myself, but, I really can’t help it!

Two:  Although I am in my final year of my undergraduate course at university, I would like to stay on to complete a Post Graduate course to obtain both a Masters and a Doctorate. I am majoring in Professional Writing, and would very much like to be a published writer one day, and perhaps in my spare time I could lecture and tutor the subject at university.

Three: My favourite television shows in alphabetical order include (although some have ended and some were cancelled): 24, 30 Rock, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Burn Notice, Castle, CSI: Miami, Damages, Hawaii Five 0, House, Human Target, Law and Order SVU, Leverage, Lie to me, Lost Girl, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, Nikita, One Tree Hill, Primeval, Seinfeld, Smallville, Supernatural, Terminator: the Sarah Connor Chronicles, Walker: Texas Ranger, Warehouse 13 and Veronica Mars.

Four: I was in a band for nearly six years. I was the writer, bassist and co-manager.

Five: I think I have a crush on two of the women I’m following on WordPress. One of them knows, one of them doesn’t, and I would honestly like to keep it that way because I personally think that is perhaps a little strange. However if someone were to tell me otherwise it may help me develop a new perspective.

Six: I am a massive video gaming fan. This year I am quite proud of myself for managing to not be the spend thrift that I so often am, and instead I have myself quite the allotment of cash for a big spend up of games later in the year. I need a cool hundred bucks for each of the following titles: X-com: Enemy Unknown (Oct 12th), Doom 3 BFG Edition (Oct 19th), Halo 4 (Nov 7th), FarCry 3 (Nov 9th), Call of Duty Black Ops 2 (Nov 11th). I additionally need a good $500 dollars worth of that for Christmas gifts and another $220 for a university assignment, which may get in the way of my gaming experience.

Seven: I am the only person I know who is not anxious, nervous or terrified to give oral presentations of any nature. The trick I’ve found is that I simply don’t care what the audience thinks, and so I don’t care if I make a mistake or they in the end have no idea what I was just talking about.

Okay, now on top of specifying 7 things about myself, I also need to nominate another 15 people for the award. At the following link is where one can obtain an image of the award to put up on their site if they so desire.

(If you don’t know how to upload the award, here’s a couple quick instructions. Go into your Dashboard, go to Widgets, and place an image Widget anywhere onto your blog. Now, in the image URL, place the URL that you see above. Add any additional information that you wish, save, then go check to see if it worked.)

Additionally, below are 5 of the basic ground rules that are attached with receiving this award:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements

With that said and done, here are the fifteen people in alphabetical order who I nominate for the Inspiring Blogger Award.

    • you are very welcome. I was about two minutes away from notifying you about the award. I guess I don’t really have to now. Just know that I think your posts are pretty great and I hope you continue to write them. Cheers!

  1. Thank you so much for the nomination, I’m really touched! :’) You’re one of the coolest people on WordPress ever and you deserve all the awards you get! Thanks for all the love and support ❤

    • Wow! That is quite the comment Nelli. Please, stop it, I think I’m falling in love…….with myself. Thank you for your appreciation and your kind words. Oh, and one of the coolest people on WordPress? Thank you, but I think such a title belongs to someone else. After this comment Nelli, I think that if such is true, I am nothing more than a close second in comparison to you. Wow, and that rhymes! I am a genius! Thank you again! Cheers!
