Versatile Blogger Award, thanks Siddarth!


Versatile Blogger Award

Siddarth Banga of the blog vision of sid has been so kind to nominate Dear Kitty. Some blog for the Versatile Blogger Award.

Thank you so much for this generous gesture!

The award rules are, according to Siddarth:

Rules are simple, just nominate some other bloggers and ask them to answer a question asked by you; and tell about yourself, 7-8 things.

I will add:

Thank the person who nominated you.

Tell your nominees by commenting on their blogs.

Share the award on your blog.

Sid’s question is:

Once an enemy, always an enemy; comment.

Not always. Even neonazis can sometimes break with their evil ideology.
