EDITED TO ADD: The very day I posted this, I received the award again from Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit - thank you so much!
Here are the rules:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog (done!)
2) Add a link to the
person people who awarded it to you (done–at the top of the post)
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs (see below)
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog (see below)
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs! (just done, and reposted this entry to say so!)
Not too long ago, I picked seven blogs for the Brillante Premio award - I love them too, of course, but I think it's nice to share the love (and this is not the kind of "love sharing" that can get you into trouble, thank goodness...). Therefore, there won't be any repeats from that list in this one.
So here are seven blogs that I "heart" (actually, it's eight...you'll see that one of them is shared), some old favorites and some new:
Los Angelista's Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness - Another LA Moms Blogger (and one I've actually met in person), writing about parenting, politics, life in the city, and Depeche Mode
A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm! - Madame Meow is an "old" favorite, although she is much younger than I am, and is another blogger with wide-ranging interests and a writing style that I enjoy
Ellipsis - I found Carly via Outpost Mâvarin (so I think she'll share this with yet another of the blogging Karens), and I love her openness and her wonderful photographs
Whee! All The Way Home - I've been reading Patois' blog for a long time (over a year now), and I keep coming back for her honesty, her good writing, and her Weekly Wonderings
books i done read - Raych's book reviews are frequently very funny as well as insightful, and have you ever met anyone who rates books on a scale that uses caterpillars?
Scobberlotch - Karen Harrington is a new blog crush of mine (and she just got this award from someone else, but it doesn't hurt to get it again!) - a published author whose blog is wide-ranging and fun reading
West of Mars: The Meet and Greet - Many book-blogging folks know Susan from Win a Book, but this is where groupies of her fictional band ShapeShifter can hang out with the band
Since this award was bestowed on my blog by four different people, does that mean I'm supposed to pass it on to seven other blogs for each of them? Since I'm only doing one post about it, I'm going to say "no," but let me add that I "heart" all of the blogs in my three blogrolls on the sidedar. Why not sample a few of them for yourself?
