The Very Inspiring Blogger Award.

Heeeeey, these awards are flying around all over the place! I’m not one to snub recognition so here’s a quick post to say thank you to Curtis at Hypersonic55, and follow those rules, spread some love and all that jazz 🙂


The Rules:

  • Display The Award logo on your blog.
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • State 7 things about yourself.
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link back to them.
  • Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award requirements.

I find it fun to read people’s random facts about themselves for these awards, usually we’re talking about films and other than our opinions on said films the content isn’t very personal. So it’s fun to get a little insight into your life and get to know those people who make up our film blogging community a bit better. For example I was interested to learn that Curtis at Hypersonic55 is an avid cartoonist as well as film lover and I would love to see him posting about his skills!!

On that note, here are 7 facts about me…

1. I like to design peoples tattoos, there are a few people walking around sporting my designs including an ex-boyfriend, woops!

2. I once dangled off the side of one of China’s tallest buildings.


3. Two of my favourite films are The Little Mermaid and Predator, a somewhat odd combination. I think I would like to call my children Eric and Dutch, but now my mum’s dog is called Dutch I should probably re-think that idea.

4. Like Curtis, my favourite ice-cream flavour is mint choc-chip.

5. I was Head Girl of my Secondary School, ooh geek alert.

6. I have two tattoos, one I got when I was 17 and bored – not a good plan. The other, a pretty design I made myself, at least no one else will have it 🙂

7. I am very absent minded and get bored quickly, often floating between projects and ideas of what I want my life to be like, I am surprised the blog has lasted this long!

For my nominations this time I am going to give it to the last fifteen people who took my fancy and so I started to follow, although not as prominent in my reading yet they have caught my eye and most probably deserve this award 🙂

1. Lonely Eskimo Films

2. On the Screen Reviews

3. Cinemawolf

4. Tom Girard

5. Keep It Reel Reviews

6. What About the Twinkie

7. Today I Watched a Movie

8. A Door Into Movies

9. Film Hipster

10. The Reel Times

11. I Don’t Make Movies I Just Watch Them

12. I’m Really a Robot

13. Kenris Productions 

14. Feasts For My Eyes

15. Film As We Know It

So if you choose to accept the award or not is up to you, it is just a bit of fun and some recognition for the hard work that goes into blogging!

Thanks again to Curtis from Hypersonic55, you guys should read his rants, good stuff!

    Thanks for the shoutout yo! The more I hear about you, the more I think we should have a drink at the pub or something lol. Your favourite films ar interesting choices, while I haven’t seen The Little Mermaid in years, Predator on the other hand is one of my favourite films of all time, so manly and hardcore! XD I also can’t believe you got to do something so awesome in China, you my friend are hardcore.

    By the way I’ve never mentioned you by name coz I never knew haha, so Claire I wish to say thanks again and I will continue to support your kick ass blog! 😀 (p.s. sorry for the long-ass message! Haha.)

      Ah the China thing was an amazing experience, people were bungee jumping off it but NO THANKS!
