Now I'm supposed to nominate other blogs to receive the award. It was hard to limit myself to just 10 blogs that entertain me on a regular basis, but a rule's a rule. If you're nominated and want to participate, that would be awesome, but please don't feel obligated to do so.
My nominations (in alphabetical order, so as to not play favorites):
Artistic Mission--One of the great things about the Internet is the ability to read about subjects that are completely foreign to me. Dan Jaboor is a full-time artist and blogs about his creations and art shows in the St. Louis area.
Available Light--Kathy P is another person I don't think I'd ever run into in my "regular" life; I always look forward to her blog posts.
Dkzody's Weblog--Dkzody is a teacher in an inner city high school in California. I enjoy reading her thoughts about teaching and life.
Going Crunchy--Shannon lives in the Chicago area and works in a library. As she puts it, her writing is "about a librarian, the environment and life".
In the New--My blogging inspiration. Jen Mac was the original "new thing a day" blogger. After she finished her project, she took a long break, but I'm happy that she's back at it!
Life in the 2nd half century... --emom's tagline is "Who knew life after 50 would be so much better?" I think she may be the only blogger I read who regularly writes in blank verse!
One Dad's Life--Gregg mixes family anecdotes and beautiful photographs he's taken. His blog is usually good for a laugh.
Philip Barron--One of the newest subscriptions in my RSS reader. Philip comments on current events, sports, and food...and occasionally about cats.
Scribbit--I think Sage nominated this blog too, but I'm going to copy her. Michelle writes from Alaska; how cool is that?
Walk It Off! A Walker's Rambles...--Written by my friend JD, who also is the crochet editor for the Craft Gossip Blog Network. JD is one of my frequent walking partners, and I often read something in one of her posts that we've talked about on the track!
