Tag: The Versatile Blogger Award

I was really delighted when I got a notification to see that Alana from alanathropology had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. I was then even more ecstatic when I saw Aoife nominate me too – it means so much to see such great support in this blogging community!

The Versatile Blogger Award allows people to discover new blogs that are most likely new and up-and-coming and have less than 1000 followers. When you receive a nomination, you write a little bit about yourself so those that are discovering you get to know you a little bit- which is great!

I have written out the rules below for you if you are one of lucky ones to be nominated:


  1. Kindly thank the person who nominated you
  2. Share the award on a blog post
  3. Divulge 7 random facts about yourself
  4. Finally, tag 10 bloggers with less than 1000 followers and let them know they’ve been nominated!


7 Facts About Me:

  1. I started my blog on August 24th (just under 3 weeks ago) and I have been incredibly lucky to have already met such lovely people who support one another in the blogging community – hence why I think the Versatile Blogger Award is such a lovely idea to reward those who work hard. I honestly still smile and get excited every time someone likes, comments or follows my blog as I could never believe anybody would be interested in what lil old Ella has to say!
  2. Now for a funny one… When I was around 18 months old, my family moved house. As I was young, I stayed with a family friend during the day and (being the crazy cat lady that I am) I decided to imitate a cat and attempt to climb through the cat flap. Safe to say I got stuck and it has been a running joke for 20 years of my life. And you bet when that family friend changed the door, my mum kept that bloody cat flap!! I swear it’s haunting me.
  3. Shamefully so, I am obsessed with correcting people’s grammar, I am an English student though… come on! I even know that it is the most infuriating thing ever but I can’t stop myself. If my boyfriend sends me a really sweet text, the first thing glaring out at me is whether the right your, there etc is being used.
  4. I am absolutely horrific at painting nails and keeping them nice. Honestly, I will try my best to get them looking great and within a day they are chipped and horrible. I have tried top coats, different drying methods… everything(!!) but nothing works. I am doomed to have short, stubby, unpolished nails.
  5. I often find myself jealous of different family dynamics. I have been lucky to spend time with my boyfriend’s family, my ex’s family and friend’s families throughout my life and I often find myself very jealous of the relationships they have at home (I am currently psyching myself up to write a blog post on why this is the case) because mine is tumultuous to say the least.
  6. My cat, Bradley, means the world to me. Many people say that about their pets but I genuinely put my cat above everyone. Like I just said, my relationships at home are rocky so having my cat there my whole life has made it that bit easier. Who doesn’t feel better when they have a cat snuggled up on their lap, purring away?!
  7. Finally, my first love and my always love will be Daniel Radcliffe – enough said really!

    I’m totally with you on point 3 (http://wp.me/p7KuH7-3h – you may want one of these for Christmas too) and point 4 (usually within 24 hours my nails look as though they’ve seen hard labour). I also have a cat, though he doesn’t seem anywhere near as affectionate as Bradley, preferring instead snuggle on his own rather than on my lap and only come to me when he wants food!

    Congrats on your well deserved nomination! And thank you so much for nominating me 🙂 x
