I am normally not humbled to receive a “chain-letter”, but I was humbled to receive the Versatile Blogger Award by “Watch Me Lose 150 Pounds” a very entertaining blogger. He was once an Atkins dieter and now has “seen the light”. Join him in his journey as he loses 150 pounds (hence the title of the blog) by going vegan! You can check out his facebook page: From Atkins to Vegan in a Heartbeat and twitter @Atkins2vegan too. He’s a great writer and shares my love of sarcasm.
It was great to read his post and to see who he listed to pass the award on to, because I found some great vegan blogs that I never knew existed.
As for me, I started out blogging over a year ago, because I had learned so much from my experience as a nurse, and then as a cancer patient, that I wanted to save people from mistakes that I had made and help them along the road to better health and happiness. As my blogging became more involved, I began to meet the most wonderful people and, well…I was hooked.
Now with my business, MOON Organics, my facebook page, twitter, pintrest etc. (please…no more social media!) the blog helps me to share information and connect with some pretty great people and help them do some pretty great things for those going through treatment, as well as spread the word about healthy options for personal care/beauty products.
There are rules with anything in life, and the Versatile Blogger Award is no exception. The rules are:
- Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
- Share 7 things about yourself.
- Pass the award on to 15 more bloggers that YOU enjoy.
- Contact the bloggers that you have chosen to let them know that they have been nominated!
So here goes…. (the thanking part is done I think)
7 things about me
- I am an RN who started out working in urology…mostly males…. I have probably seen over 5000 “free Willies”.
- I H-A-T-E flying.
- I can speak fluent pig latin. (eally-ray)
- I will continue to help people find ways to get healthy and happy for as long as I am able to blog.
- I hate my middle name (Jean…sorry, all you Jeans out there)
- I would
leaveseriously consider leaving my husband for John Stamos if given the opportunity.

Stay healthy and happy!
