Beautiful Blogger Award

I feel acknowledged
Inspired by the accolade
Given to me by Bloody Endurance – Tale of an Endurance Warrior

Beautiful Blogger Award nominationThank you so much for nominating me for the “Beautiful Blogger Award”.  To be nominated by my peers is more recognition that I could ever ask for!

When receiving this nomination, I need to first nominate other blogs I feel are deserving of praise, and additionally, I need to list seven random facts about myself. 

First things first, I nominate:

  1. helenvalentina
  2. A Shade Of Pen
  3. Babylon Fall

All three are poets that I follow, support and admire.

Seven random things about Poetizing (that’s me!):

  1. I started writing poetry as far back as I can remember. It goes without saying that each poem is intensely personal and to me, is akin to a photo snapshot of where I am in my life.
  2. I struggle with low self-esteem, depression and insecurity. Thus, I consider myself a true “tortured poet” as these attributes are often the very drivers that inspire my poems.
  3. I lost my father to suicide at the age of 17.  Writing poetry is my way of honouring his memory.
  4. I am a backslidden Christian – but I am getting back on the narrow and winding path to Jesus.
  5. When I am not indulging my first love, i.e. to write, I love singing and reading.
  6. I have very strong views on alcohol and drugs – possibly because my father and Gran were alcoholics, and have seen many friends afflicted with substance abuse.
  7. I have a very small circle of family and friends as I share the truly intimate parts of my life with very few people.

  1. Congratulations, so very well deserved! And thank you for thinking of me, that is very kind of you! πŸ™‚ I agree with you re singing and reading as other great pursuits when not writing – what sort of singing do you like to do? πŸ™‚


      1. I was trained to sing operatically when younger, but I prefer more contemporary music – and then I’m quite eclectic..anything from Sondheim through to U2…I tend to sing along with male tenor voices as I kind of fits my contralto to mezzo range. πŸ™‚


      2. Wow! I’m suitable impressed πŸ™‚ I vocally trained (non-classical) for about 3 years and I sing mezzo-soprano, although I’ve gotten used to going into the lower ranges too. I don’t know about you, but I don’t really use my vocal abilities … so its an unexercised muscle right now 😦
