Versatile Blogger Award Ribbon

The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you very much to Endalia (Princess in a Castle), also known as Tessa (Narratess) for nominating me for this award. It’s the first time I end in one of these chains, but as I am writing this post, I’ve found myself tagged for another one, the Real Neat Blogger Award, that will go in another post.

As far as I know, this award is meant for bloggers that write about different topics or use different media for it. I assume I will belong to the first category.

Rules of the Versatile Blogger Award

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.


Soooooo, five things about me:

  • My mom was born on International Worker’s Day, my dad on International Women’s Day, but I did it on the anniversary of the fascist rising against the republic here in Spain. That rising resulted in a 3 years-long civil war and 40 years of dictatorship. The joke runs on the family that I chose the date on purpose, just to say “NO” to my parents. Disclaimer: I am as far from fascist ideas as anyone can be.
  • My first contact with computers was when I was about 5 or 6 years. My parents got a ZX Spectrum (16Kb of RAM). That was my first experience with computer games and I also did my first steps on programming with that computer. They still have it at home, even if they don’t use it anymore.
  • I am left-handed.
  • I started learning the piano as a small kid but abandoned a couple of years later against my parent’s will.
  • As a teenager I decided to learn guitar, but was ashamed of telling my parents because of the piano event so, for some time, I was using my dad’s guitar only when I was alone at home. Eventually, I told them.
  • I was the bassist of an unknown rock band with 3 other friends. We called the band “La 105” (room 105), as we were rehearsing on an old closed hotel. During the band life, we also used a greenhouse and a mechanical workshop, but the name remained unchanged. That was more than 20 years ago, but we are still friends.
  • During my twenties (actually from 20 to 25) I got to work and live in the three provinces that form my region (Aragón).

The Nominees

Like other nominees, I think that 15 new names are a bit too much. I will go with only 5. All of them are participants in Blapril 2020.

  1. Aragon is one of my favorite regions of Spain, particularly the south around Teruel. All of Spain is beautiful, though, apart from that flat bit around La Mancha, maybe. Can’t wait until we’re able to travel there again. Had to cancel our trip for June – maybe in October.
