Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Nat RussoAwards 7 Comments

My fellow bloggers and writers +Katherine Vucicevic and +Jasveena Prabhagaran have been kind enough to nominate me for a Very Inspiring Blogger award! I am both humbled and honored.

There are five rules I have to follow to accept this award. They are as follows:
  1. Display the award logo on my blog.
  2. State SEVEN facts about myself.
  3. Link back to the folks who nominated me.
  4. Nominate FIFTEEN other bloggers who deserve this award.
  5. Notify each of the nominees.
Read on for my acceptance post!

Seven Facts

  1. I’m a software engineer but my degree is in Philosophy. I use that degree on a daily basis, both at work and in my writing. It’s been FAR more useful than a C.S. degree 🙂
  2. I used to sing Baritone in a barbershop quartet.
  3. I played rhythm guitar in a country band in my teens.
  4. I enjoy playing disc golf with some degree of regularity.
  5. I’m a Black Belt in the Korean martial art Tang Soo Do (Midnight Blue belt to my fellow TSD practitioners…we don’t use Black for philosophical reasons).
  6. I was a defense contractor for many years and had the opportunity to live and work in Germany while writing software for the U.S. Army (V Corps G6).
  7. I like bees. They’re cuddly. They don’t sting me ’cause they know I like them. See how that works? 🙂
