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:

- Beyondtraditionalmath
- Blogbloggerbloggest
- Crazygoodreaders DYSLEXIA DIGEST
- established1962
- Hummingtop
- colleenyoung.wordpress.com
- MY MATH-Y ADVENTURES
- Nebusresearch (He actually has 2 great blogs.)
- NumberLovingBeagle
- PeopleStoryNetwork
- Bookzoompa
- RobertLovesPi
- http://mathtuition88.com/
- VisuallyLiteral (Nancy Tordai Photography)
- 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.)

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?
