I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Jo at Working Mom’s Hustle.
Thank you so much! Jo’s entertaining site is a lifestyle blog and more! I love a good lifestyle blog, it appeals to the nosy person in me!
It made me question the definition of ‘versatile’.
Now I have a niche blog, but can you be versatile in a niche area? Looking at how my blog has developed I’d have to admit that it is pretty versatile. I have 10 categories, of which 9 are history related and I find myself writing from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries and covering the themes of women’s history, postal history, family history and my previous academic research. I also write the occasional blogging/writing post that prove very popular and I like to share my experience and tips with others.
The rules for accepting this award are simple;
Write 7 interesting facts about yourself
Nominate amazing bloggers for this award
Do I have seven interesting facts to share?
I’m a little boring, here goes!
- I have four posts that are regularly picked up by search engines – this does fascinate me! What makes my posts go top of the Google charts?
And an extra one that has become popular this month with the centenary of some women gaining the vote in the UK.
2) I tend NOT to watch historical drama – I prefer factual documentaries.
3) I take lots of photos of water birds whenever I come across them.
4) I also take pictures of deer when I can – I live a short drive from Richmond Park, London.
5) I have an HistorianRuby Instagram account that I forget to use.
6) There was a crazy day when the stats for this post (a family history post, Killed by Enemy Action) went through the roof (but not quite viral!) after being shared a few times on Facebook – I was at the Harry Potter exhibition in London when I got a notification saying ‘your stats are booming’ from WordPress!
7) I fell out of the loft breaking my ribs during the research of the above post and suffered weeks of pain. Writing helped keep me sane.
I nominate the bloggers below! They are both journals of-a-sort and are hugely entertaining.
https://bitchininthekitchen.org – The Britchy One writing with lots of humour about her busy life.
https://nomadonline.blog/category/home/ – Aggie Soon about her life in Australia and more contemplative and thought-provoking posts.
Thanks once again for the nomination!
