What means VIB, I hear you ask? I got a lovely, and most unexpected, tweet two days ago from Kat at I Saw You Dancing (the brains behind December’s #reverb12). She nominated me as a Very Inspirational Blogger! I blush. I stutter. I beam.
I’ve said so many times, in various blog entries, that I started this blog to record my adventures on a librarianship research trip to Toronto in Autumn 2011, to the point where I think I’d save time if I made my own meme to copy and paste in as and when required. I certainly never gave a great deal of thought to the direction in which the blog would go in my post-Toronto world. I’m happy that I’ve managed to keep it going, and I find it a great way to exercise my writing skills. But I never would have expected that I would be acclaimed as an inspiration, much less being described as a woman of “intelligent brave decadence”. I plan to live up to this portrayal of me in the future. Each day I will look for opportunities and reasons to be intelligent, brave, and decadent (possibly not all at once).The format of the thank you speech is thankfully – heh – provided for any and all VIBs. We are encouraged to share seven facts about ourselves.
