Awards

I decided to make this page for two reasons: One, I love letting my readers know about some of the other wonderful blogs out there that I love to read. Two, I want to acknowledge those who were so amazing enough to pass on these awards to me. Although I may not follow the rules for every one, I appreciate each one with all my heart.

Thank you for thinking of me and appreciating my blog :)

Versatile Blogger Award
from Andy at My story to you..

The rules: Tell everyone 7 things about myself. Pass the award on to 15 bloggers. Notify the 15 bloggers of their award. Thank my award giver. Display a picture of the award on my blog!

1. My name is Janice (not Cafe =P).

2. I have an obsession with clouds. I love gazing at them and admiring their different shapes and colours. I think they’re one of the most beautiful things in the world.

3. I love to sing but am really shy about it and have always had massive stage fright. I hope to be brave enough to post a video for you all here one day!

4. My favourite place in the world is Killarney Provincial Park (in Ontario) where I go on a backcountry canoe-portaging trip every summer or fall. It is the only place where I’ve known true peace of mind and can leave everything from the city behind.

5. I’m “one of the boys.” I like watching NFL and UFC, playing poker and generally talking shit. And I hate shopping =P

6. Errr, okay I’m running out of things to say. Hmmmm … I’m terrified of riding bicycles? That’s not a question. That’s a fact :(

7. I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminology, and a Master’s in Criminology.

My 8 nominees for the award!

1. Unsolicited Advice — Fraser is a friend from my Master’s class and I’ve always enjoyed his sarcastic, witty sense of humour. He’s a fairly new blogger so please go say hi and support!

2. Mooselicker — Tim was one of the very first bloggers who befriended me on WordPress and who I subscribed to. His posts are honest, humorous, and at times not for the faint of heart!

3. Dear Optimists Den and Nadia continually remind me to find the positives in life and to not take things so seriously! And I am in love, love, love with Nadia’s comic drawings. They are the cutest thing in the world! :)

4. In Search of Wonderland — CT shares his beautiful poems and photography with us and at times gets into more personal matters. I really admire anyone who can pour out such indepth thoughts for everyone to read.

5. Yoonanimous — Yoona is simply hilarious. I literally laugh out loud every time I read a new post. Whether she’s modeling a fashion idea, sharing a recipe or ranting about her husband and two adorable kids, she always has something funny to say about it!

6. Time After Time — Jake has probably already received numerous awards from other bloggers, but I can’t leave him out of this list. Jake creates unique and beautiful graphic art that is admired by many on WordPress!

7. The Skinny Jeans & Starbucks Chronicles — I seem to really like blogs that make me laugh. Karen’s is one of them. She’s got an opinion or two to share with her readers and always does it with great style and humour.

8. Cerridwen’s Cauldron — Once again, hilarious. I am always in awe of how well Melissa can story-tell. And she always publicly welcomes her new followers, which I think is so badass.
