And the winner is...

Devil Mood has been kind enough to bestow upon this corner of cyberspace an award. I like the idea of awards, but even more, I like the idea that I can then pass the award to others. So, here are some of the sites which I most enjoy. Really, I could come up with many more than just the 5 that I get to give 'officially'. But I'll restrict myself to just a select few. I haven't used any particular criteria, though I have tried to not give the award to those who've already gotten it, and sadly, I feel the need to avoid giving awards to anyone who hasn't posted anything in months and months. Which cuts out a lot of cool sites.

1) Creampuff Revolution: Roro has style, she has wit, and she can really, really write. About anything. And should write, about anything, so that I can read and enjoy it.

2) Novel Nymph: She can turn a single line into an interesting post. Or more than a single line, either way. And she has blogged about peanut butter hot chocolate, for which I am grateful.

3) Plastic Alligator: Erin is quite simply, cool. She makes the everyday interesting.

4) Bastard of Art and Commerce: He combines the everyday with a very dry sense of the absurd. And whenever he writes about the web, I find ideas for my thesis, which is a great added bonus.

5) Mapping the Marvelous: The model I'll follow if I ever get around to starting a research blog. Marion is working in a fascinating field, and it shows in every post.

The whole thing is a goddamn meat parade. I don't want any part of it.

No, actually, I mean, thank you. Sometimes I wish I was doing what you're doing. Thinking and writing, instead of just... writing.

Marion sagde ...

Aw, thank you Kim. I wish I was writing more often - and this applies to the blog and to my thesis...

Novel Nymph sagde ...

Actually, the original award was supposed to be given to 10 blogs but I thought that wasn't really selective, so I only gave away 5. And this only makes your award more special, you see :)

Greg, yes, it is a goddamn meat market. But is that so bad? ;-) And thanks for thinking that I'm thinking and writing. Especially now that I've committed to writing everyday, it's kinda scary how much more I can produce if I just stop thinking.

Marion, it's a quality vs. quantity thing. And I'd say, save the quantity for your thesis. Of course, I'm also supposedly editing a proposal...well, I'll stop there, before I make myself depressed!

Novel, wordless is good...you can just post photos!

Ms. Mood, 5 seems a good number. :-)

Your blog is indeed fantastic - I'm totally loving (and am very inspired by) both your excellent writing and your daily posting!

Thank you so much for your very kind words about mine and for pointing me to the other fabulous bloggers on your list - I feel a blog-reading binge coming on, missy . . .

Blog-reading binges are wonderful things...I hope I have inspired you into one. I'd go on one myself if I wasn't busy with all sorts of other things that can't be put off.

Thank you! :-) I would have given you an award as well, if you hadn't just gotten one. I look forward to seeing who you recommend.
