Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Thanks to Kayla over at Perfecting Patty for The Dragon’s Loyalty blog award! Apparently, this award is a combination of The Versatile Blogger Award and The Very Inspiring Blogger Award (cool, a two-fer! ๐Ÿ™‚ ). This is the second award she’s nominated me for, the first being a Liebster Award. I’m glad she’s a fan!

So, the “rules”:

  1. Display the Award Certificate on your website
  2. Announce your win with a post and link to whoever presented your award
  3. Present 15 awards to deserving bloggersย (I think I’ll do ten.)
  4. Drop them a comment to tip them off after youโ€™ve linked them in the post
  5. Post 7 interesting things about yourself.ย 

Okay, so 1 and 2, check. 3 and 4 after 5.

Seven Interesting Things About Me (disclaimer: These types of questions are my bane ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

1) I’ve been an aircraft mechanic, working on F/A-18 Hornets while in the Navy.

2) I was treated to a Cirque du Soleil show in Hong Kong after giving a French-Canadian woman a tour of the flight deck on the John C. Stennis. I even got to eat with the performers and go backstage after the show ๐Ÿ™‚ Awesome experience at a time when I was feeling pretty low.

3) My first experience with karaoke came in New Zealand.

4) I used to perform “Baby Got Back” so much that people actually started requesting it!

5) I helped chase down what we thought were truant sailors while on Shore Patrol in Victoria, Canada. It turned out to be a trio of very nice Canadian guys, who took it all in stride.

6) I completely pissed off one young woman while at journalism school when I did better on an article that I had written drunk and at 2:00 in the morning than she did after spending 6-7 hours on it sober. On the off-off-chance she sees this; sorry, Sara (but it did make me feel great).

7) I have three stories scheduled to be published in 2014.

On to my 10:

Anja at Oh Pithy Me

EA Wicklund at Momus News

Kerri Ann Salsac at Writing For Life

Janna at JannaTWrites

C.C. at consciouscacophony

Yeshasvi Mahadev at TinyPurpleMe

iamfunny2 at JED’s Playhouse

Katie Kurtz at e.g. | a writing blog

Glynis at The Between

Momo at Momosapien

So there’s my ten. If any of you wish to participate, wonderful. If not, I completely understand. Just know that I like each of your blogs.

There you have it. Thanks again to Kayla for the award! And to all my followers and other readers, Thank You!

Happy Reading and Writing!

J. Milburn

  1. I am jealous of your Cirque du Soleil moment ๐Ÿ™‚
    Okay…I know why I made the list…because of the 19 times your one post appeared in my reader. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have learned I must read all you write or else I may get attacked again.
    Honestly, I do love your writing. It is refreshing and you really tell a story so well. Congrats and thank you for placing me on your list.

    • Yes, you made the “list” Mwah, mwaha, mwahahahahahaha! ๐Ÿ˜‰ The plan I cooked up with the WordPress Goblins is working perfectly! First, Anja, then…the WORLD!

      Seriously, I’m grateful to have you as a reader and I enjoy your work as well, so it is a win-win for me ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. […] then today I received the Dragon’s Loyalty Award from J. Milburnย of Writing to be Noticed.ย Thr rules for this one […]

  3. Congrats on the award and thanks for the nomination of my blog. It’s an honor to be associated with all these great sites.

  4. Congrats on the award! I had to laugh at the Baby Got Back one…great song (as long as a girlfriend didn’t expect a love song ๐Ÿ™‚ ) Good news on the stories being published!

    Thanks so much for including me in the list of nominations – I’m honored! If I don’t play along, it’s because I’ve been stumped again by one of the requirements: “7 interesting things about myself.” Can’t think of a single one ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Oh, I understand well ๐Ÿ™‚ If it is one thing that would have prevented me from taking part in the award, it is that requirement. I had to reach into the way-back machine for most of mine ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks, Janna!

  5. Wow – thank you! I am new to blogging and to things like this. It may take me a bit to pull it together but I am honored to be honored – and to be linked to!
