Nerdinthebrain is a very well rounded and inspiring blogger. I feel quite honored that she nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Just two little rules for accepting this award:

1) The nominee shall display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award logo on her/his blog, and link to the blog they got nominated from.

2) The nominee shall nominate fifteen (15) bloggers she/he admires, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it.

Because this award has these requirements, it may seem like a modern version of a chain letter, but it also appears to be a great way to step out of our comfort zones. It helps us read posts and share ideas with people with whom we have a little something in common but just don’t know it yet. Here are my 15 nominees:

  1. Beyondtraditionalmath
  2. Blogbloggerbloggest
  3. Crazygoodreaders DYSLEXIA DIGEST
  4. established1962
  5. Hummingtop
  6. colleenyoung.wordpress.com
  7. MY MATH-Y ADVENTURES
  8. Nebusresearch (He actually has 2 great blogs.)
  9. NumberLovingBeagle
  10. PeopleStoryNetwork
  11. Bookzoompa
  12. RobertLovesPi
  13. http://mathtuition88.com/
  14. VisuallyLiteral (Nancy Tordai Photography)
  15. MarekBennett

Congratulations to each of you. (I’ll do the informing tomorrow because I’ve already spent more time than usual on the internet today.)

  3. Well, that’s terrific, and I’m very grateful. What a nice idea this is – congratulations to whoever came up with it in the first place. And of course special thanks to yourself. Mind you, I doubt I know of fifteen blogs that aren’t already on your list – I’ll just have to try harder, won’t I?
