We're not sure what to say

Over a week ago now we received a Versatile Blogger award from our friend, Monika.

We are honoured.

We think.

It's taken us all this time to figure out what to say. We are honoured. That's for sure. And grateful. But a little puzzled, too, because to be honest, isn't versatility in a blog just another way of saying it lacks focus? A sign of possible ADHD?

The blogs we follow are almost entirely the work of people who are truly passionate about a subject. One subject. They stick to that one topic and they do it well. We wish we could do the same. It seems life would be much less chaotic.

We, on the other hand, are dabblers and dilettantes of the first order. We fiddle with this and we fiddle with that. We're not really experts at anything. You know the phrase "Jack of all trades and master of none". Well, that's us.

Too bad there isn't a 12-step program for us.

"Hello, my name is Grandma Coco and I'm a flibbertygibbet."

  1. Dear Grandma Coco,

    We now have something upon which we can disagree! (There's a first time for everything!)

    In my not-so-humble-enough opinion, versatility in a blog does not mean it lacks focus - and most definitely not in your case. What it means is lots of interesting topics which are delightfully written that keep us coming back for more. Besides that, I would not describe you as "master of none" because your talents in each area can't help but show through.

    It's nice to be able to focus on just one thing in life, but that means missing out on a lot of others. I'd rather partake of the banquet of life, as you do. :-)

    Don't change! We like you and your blog just the way you are!


  2. Yep, both views are valid! Non focus making a blog versatile and versatality causing lack of focus... I would wonder about such an award myself but, I too would be honoured... No body gives me those kind of honours -- not that I am begging for one, cause I talk regardless of what people think! hahahaha!

  3. Flibbertygibbet....I think I prefer the term "procraftinator". It has "pro" in it that sounds so much more positive. As a procraftinator myself, I enjoy your flights of fancy, and every now and again, I go with you.
    Congrats on the award. You deserve it.
