The Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

What a fabulous Christmas present! Thank you to the lovely Andy Mulberry for nominating me for my first award: The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Andy is the children’s author of the Skycastle series and she blogs about juggling being a working mum with being a writer. Pop over to her blog ‘something smells fishy here…’ and check it out.


The Award rules are:

  • Display the award on your blog
  • Link back to the person who nominated you
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 bloggers, link to them, and notify them about their nominations

So here are my 7 things…

  1. Becoming a mum of three beautiful girls is my proudest moment and greatest achievement.
  2. I’d rather be in my woods than… well anywhere.
  3. I got a certificate from the US Navy for code breaking! My neighbour now thinks I’m a spy.
  4. I love being a mum as it gives me an excuse to sing along to Disney songs.
  5. I’m a keen archer, though I don’t get much opportunity for shooting since having the girls.
  6. I love the atmosphere of old buildings – I just knew our old cottage (built in 1660) was right for us, based on the feeling I got as I stepped through the door.
  7. I’m often described as quirky, bizarre or slightly mad but I take it as a compliment. I’m actually the most sensible one of the family (sorry mum!)

And my nominations…

Well I would definitely have nominated Andy Mulberry but she already has this award. I would have also nominated Michelle Eastman for her amazing work on promoting picture books and her #PBPiO initiative but she’s already been nominated by Andy.

First I nominate my good friends:

  • Lesley Hayes – The Lesley Hayes Blog: author, storyweaver, member of the Indie Author Review Exchange #IARE generally lovely person and my fairy godmother.
  • Jim Milson – Jim Milson’s Blog & Things: steampunk storyteller, chief bear maker at Old Glory Bears, lover of nature and art.

Next some other members of the Indie Author Review Exchange #IARE. All are amazing writers and reviewers but in addition to that they are fabulously supportive of indie authors:

My children’s author friends, both of whom are inspirational in their work to promote reading in children:

An inspirational writer:

An amazing photographer:

A witty mommy blogger ♥:

Blogs which promote a love of nature and the outdoors:

My beautiful arty friend:

And finally my last ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award’ nomination goes to a non-blogger but an amazing writer who has been a guest on my blog and on Oakwheel:

  • Neil Giles – Author, writer, poet and my Twitter buddy!

Thanks all for reading.
Sylva Fae ♥

    Loved reading your 7 facts! Even though I now think you really ARE a spy and all that time you in the woods is to exchange super secret information with…, well, with someone 🙂 Will be checking out the bloggers you nominated now!
