The Versatile Blogger

I was surprised today to discover that Julie from Discovering Jubilee nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!

I guess a Versatile blogger is one who can't stick to just one subject!  But, that would be boring, right?  Anyway, it made me wonder -- what do I most often blog about??

So, I checked my labels and found out that these are my Top 7 subjects:

#1 family life = 177
#2 recipes = 101
#3 family celebrations = 65
#4 sons = 58
#5 holidays = 56
#6 spiritual life = 52
#7 large families = 48


Obviously, most of the time I blog about life in a large family, birthday celebrations and other family events and holidays.  That is no surprise, as one of the reasons I started this blog was to preserve family memories.  Since I dropped Scrapbooking 101, I decided to enroll in Blogging 101 instead!  ;)

Sharing recipes is another favorite topic of mine, as evidenced by my 101 posts!  That has definitely been a hot topic of late, as I'm in the midst of this 31 Days of Pumpkin endeavor!   Generally, I do enjoy cooking and baking and I love sharing recipes with others!  But there are times when I feel uninspired . . . then I browse cookbooks or other blogs hoping for an idea of what to cook for supper!  

I was surprised to see sons so high on the list -- but I do have six of them, so I guess I must talk about them a lot!  If you have six sons, it certainly affects the way your house looks and smells, the type and amount of food you cook, and what you do with your time!  (Can I get an "Amen??")   ;)
Spiritual life was another popular topic for me.  As a Christian, I like to share what God is doing in my life, make spiritual analogies, and encourage other women to pursue biblical womanhood.  

Part of accepting this award is to tell seven things about myself.  So here goes -- 7 Random Things About Me:

#1 My favorite color is blue -- always has been and probably always will be.

#2 My favorite season is Fall.  I love the sights, sounds, smells and flavors of fall!

#3 I like sleeping with the windows open -- except for when it is really humid, like it was last night.

#4 I enjoy reading a Parallel Bible -- with the KJV in the left column and the Amplified in the right column, but the print is small and getting harder and harder for me to see.  :(

#5 Philippians is my favorite book of the Bible.

#6 I don't mind a rainy day -- as long as I don't have to go anywhere, but I hate driving in the rain!  When it is dark or rainy -- I just want to stay home!!

#7 Our family loves the old "Get Smart" TV series and thanks to Netflix, we have been watching all of the old seasons!  We recently watched the wedding of 86 and 99!   So funny!  Do you even know what I'm talking about????

Now, I am supposed to pass this award on to 15 (you've got to be kidding!)  7 other blogs.  Check out these other versatile bloggers!
