VERY INSPIRING MIND: An award from Gene the Sourcerer

Hot on the heels of the awesome Versatile Blogger Award picked up on Monday from Kim Gosselin, I then discovered that I have also gone and got myself a coveted Very Inspiring Blogger Award from good blogging pal Gene Gordon of the “Sourcerer” blog.

Sourcerer is a blog about music, comics, photos and opinions. It is a multi-contributor outfit posting the latest happenings in the world of pop culture, humour, social commentary and geekery. If you need to learn the hard and fast facts about the state of this world, but want to get your side fill of special-edition Marvel comics and Star Trek features, let the Sourcerer work his magic on you.

In addition to Gene, the blog also showcases the works of four other bloggers, Gene’s sister Diana, who blogs under ‘Part Time Monster’ (a previous award sender of the Half-Eaten Mind), Comp Geek David, Quaint Jeremy and Marissa Bergen. An operation of family and friends, the Sourcerer is all about blogging for enjoyment, sharing the contributors’ individual and varied talents and reaching out to people with similar interests. They like to keep things loose and funny, but occasionally venture into the territory of political and social issues.

Gene himself was nominated for the VIBA by Nerd in the Brain on the 6th of July 2014 (Sunday) which he was very happy about and commented that it had come at a perfect time. All of the nominees Gene chose have been those who have inspired him in one way or another. I have inspired Gene on his Twitter journey and we have given each other a lot of support. I admire and am inspired by his writing skill, his grasp of multitudinous topics and the fact that he is an awesome guy to have known. Thanks very much!!

The Two Rules:

1) The nominee shall display the Very Inspiring Blogger Award logo on her/his blog, and link to the blog they got nominated from.

This award nomination was from Gene Gordon of ‘Sourcerer’. His nomination article can be found here.

2) The nominee shall nominate fifteen (15) bloggers she/he admires, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it.

My inspiring nominees are:

1. Mother Nature

2. Inese MJ Photography

    Thank you for the nomination!:) Very appreciate! Do you know what i have to do if i already have this award?


    • halfeatenmind July 12, 2014 / 6:33 pm

      You’re very welcome Inese. If you’ve already received this award, then you can accept it again or decline. What I normally do, is if I am nominated for an award which I’ve taken previously, but it has a different design of badge, I just accept it again. But it’s up to you. Hope this helps, and thanks for commenting too.



      • inesephoto July 12, 2014 / 10:54 pm

        Vijay – it has the same design… I will nominate 15 bloggers, just won’t put the second logo. Thank you very much for the appreciation! I will do it in my Tuesday post.:)

    Very nice nomination post. Thanks for including all that info about my blogging.

    And I’ve never seen the related content pull so many links that are so closely related. It pulled two more of my links, Three from people I chat with frequently, and one from a blogger who nominated me for an award a few months ago.


    • halfeatenmind July 12, 2014 / 6:34 pm

      Thank you Gene, you’re right, the Related Articles feature is very strong in gathering connected links. I’ve seen do it with previous posts on my blog. It’s a godsend!



  6. Casual Blogger July 13, 2014 / 12:48 pm

    Thank you for my first award! Glad to be of some sort of inspiration to you and will gladly put it up on my blog very soon, 🙂


    • halfeatenmind July 13, 2014 / 4:11 pm

      You’re very welcome, Huzzy. You do deserve it and I look forward to seeing your award post soon.

      Take care,

    I am saying a very big thank you for the award. Quite number of time I don’t know how to go about it. The condition I may be unable to meet. I hope you will bear with. I appreciate your friendship.


    • halfeatenmind July 19, 2014 / 4:27 pm

      Hi Akeem.

      I really appreciate your thanks for the award. It’s not a big deal if you can’t go ahead with accepting the award. It’s entirely optional.
      Have a nice weekend!



  8. BeWithUs July 16, 2014 / 5:04 am
