I Have Been Nominated

14 11 2013


This past Thursday, I was checking through my emails, I logged in to WordPress and it appeared that someone had left a couple of comments. I read through both of them and I was surprised to see that I had been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. This was a lovely surprise, even more so as I had not heard of any blog awards. The rules of the Versatile Blogger Award dictate:

  • Thank      the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include      a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out      how to do it.
  •  Next,      select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow      regularly. (I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate      those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a      link to this site.
  •  Finally,      tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

The person who nominated me was Title Screen, for which I am very thankful, it really made my day, so very happy about it, thank you so much.

Title Screen

Now here are my nominations for the VBA:

So there are my nominations for this award so finally we move on to 7 things about me.

  1. I am a huge Godzilla fan.
  2. I have watched 27 of the current 29 Godzilla films (30 in 2014).
  3. I have over 130 films on DVD and Blu-ray.
  4. I love playing Board Games; my Favourite is Monopoly Here and Now Edition followed by Yedo and Quarriors.
  5. I started writing a novel in 2006 but have not worked on it for about 4-5 years.
  6. I consider 24 as the best TV Drama Series in the world.
  7. I have recently started playing Pokémon again after about 10 years of not playing it.

So once again, thanks to Title Screen for the nomination and thanks as well to the above Blogs for providing amazing content and thanks to everyone who continues to read and support my blog, thank you so very much.


My Second Blog

2 09 2013

Second Blog

Over the course of the past year I have written many different things. I have written pieces of work for my University Course as well as pieces written in my spare time including (obviously) Blog Posts as well as several poems and short stories. More recently I have sent off some of these Stories (and one poem) to Story Competitions. To date though, I have been unsuccessful with most (I have yet to hear from Bridport). Recently though I decided to publish these stories, as was once suggested by my Creative Writing Tutor. While they may not appear on the shelves, or in papers or short listed/long listed entries in competitions, I decided to post them online. While I could do this on this blog and maybe make a second page, I decided to start-up a second blog just for my short stories.

So, with the blog now up and running I thought I would let you know where you can find it and take a look. The Web Address is: http://samstoriesblog.wordpress.com/ 

So please go and take a look and have a read of my stories. Click on the thumbs up/thumbs down buttons if you liked or disliked the stories and feel free to leave any comments that you wish to make. Don’t worry, this is not the end of this blog, my primary blog. This will continue to be updated weekly so please check back regularly for more posts.
