Versatile Blogger Award

Wow! This is really late, but I’m finally getting around to the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you so much to kitsune and neko and starsamaria for nominating Gagging on Sexism! When I started this blog, I couldn’t make up my mind and go with just one subject, but I guess my indecision worked out well. I’ve been having a great time writing about various fiction from my feminist standpoint and I really appreciate getting nominated by other great bloggers.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the award giver and link back to their blog in your post.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this award along to 15 blogs.
  4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

Here’s 7 things about me that you may or may not think are interesting:

1.   I don’t think I ever felt like my age. I often joke that I have the brain of someone much older than myself (although I’ve still got a lot to learn!). I also always wonder about the age of other bloggers and the people who read this blog.

2. I consider myself to be on the shy side and I’m definitely an introvert.

3. I am a total perfectionist. I don’t push my impossible standards on others, but I certainly hold myself to them. Typically, it drives me crazy, but I feel that there are some benefits.

4. I love cats! I like dogs, too, but I’ve always loved cats as far back as I can remember. As a kid, I’d draw cats, my imaginary games were about cats, and I’d read about cats. I’d be okay being the neighborhood cat lady.

5. I’m trying to learn Japanese. I’ve been studying it for about two years now, but I only know the basics (if you’re familiar with the Genki series, I’ve completed that). It’s such a fun language and I’m looking forward to learning more!

6. Despite my complaints about a lot of romance in fiction, I realized that I read plenty of it. Most of the manga I own is shojo (a.k.a. girls’ manga which always has some romance) and I read some fiction about romances as well. I don’t pick stories up based on the genre though; I just want a good story with interesting characters (and strong female characters).

7. I think many people probably peg me as very traditional when they meet me because of some of my mannerisms and other things like I’m one of those strange people who likes to cook. I’d say I have a few traditional aspects. I’m no outspoken tomboy, but I’m not a girly-girl or very traditional, either.

And finally, here are the blogs I’m nominating:

Contemporary Japanese Literature

Feminist Fiction

Gaming As Women

Manga Therapy

Pixels and Panels

Shojo Corner


The Untold Stories of Altair and Vega

I know, it’s not 15 blogs, but hey. Instead, I’ll tell you one more thing about myself: I don’t read enough blogs!
