And the winners are...

I've been tagged twice in two days for excellent blogging! Wow! What an honor, especially coming from two of my favorite bloggers - Wendy (caribousmom) and Jen (Devourer of Books). Thanks you two!!!

Now it's my responsibility to bestow this award on seven more of my favorite bloggers. Wendy already beat me to a couple of them (including herself!), but there are many wonderful blogs to choose from that I try to keep track of. The envelope please:

  • First, for her excellent book reviews: Laura at Musings. We share a lot of book interests, so I know I can rely on her opinions about any given book. She also has a wonderful site about her family's land restoration called Nurturing Nature, and she organizes some of the reading challenges (organizing is her strong suit!) I consider Laura my blogging mentor - she ushered me in and reassured me, cheered me on when I took the first baby blog steps. Thanks Laura!
  • For her humor, excellent writing and reviews: Andi at Tripping Toward Lucidity. Andi's all over the blogosphere writing reviews and essays. She has a recent addition of a great environmental/political blog, Unlikely Activist.
  • For her wonderful stories and photos of local color (who could forget the orphaned ducks?) and excellent book reviews: Lynne (dovegreyreader scribbles), who is gaining quite a reputation as a blogger and reviewer.
  • For some of the loveliest flower photos on the web, yummy recipes and food photos, knitting projects and excellent book reviews: Karen (Cornflower).
  • For her community building on the web, the originator of the Sunday Salon: Deb at The DebLog.
  • For his originality and wonderful drawings: Simon at Stuck in a Book.
  • For the most eclectic bunch o' books and great reviews: Irish at Ticket to Anywhere.

Terri, I've been checking out dovegrey and cornflower for some time now, particularly cornflower (whom I learned of through the EF Benson website). So glad you know about them AND gave them a mention, as I think they are wonderful too.
