Dr. Monkey, prolific blog god of the inimitable Monkey Muck, blog has bestowed upon me the much -coveted Superior Scribbler Award.
Quite an honour coming from the Supreme Scribbler himself. Here’s the cool stuff he said about my blog
I wouldn’t be me if I did throw some blog love to a babe from north of the border and this time XUP (eX Urban Pedestrian) gets all my blog love. She writes a great blog that’s funny, smart, and quite the slice of her life. In fact, blogs like hers are why Al Gore invented this series of tubes we call the internet.
Of course I now get to pass this award on to five other bloggers who I believe are Superior Scribblers. There are so many superior scribblers in the blogosphere that I read every day. How do I choose just 5?
I couldn’t. I tried. I really did, but it was all I could manage to whittle it down to 7. So, I’m passing this award on to SEVEN bloggers with superior scribbling skills onto whom I couldn’t not pass this award. (With sentence like this, you’ll understand why I won).
Alison from Party of 3 – who can always bring the hilarious to every day stories and surprises me constantly with the quirky twists her blog posts take. She’s a writer. That may be an obvious description, but I mean that in the full sense of the word.
Risley from Cedarflame – who doesn’t post nearly enough because her life is really one big unexpected adventure with a cast of some truly bizarre characters. She really should be writing for TV.
Leah from Daily Piglet – Who always writes from the heart in such a pure, wide open way about her life and experiences. What she talks about can’t be easy sometimes, but it’s always a joy to read.
Dee from On the Curb – Who is much too self-depreciating, but does it in such a damn funny way that I never know whether to laugh or give her a good shake. Both at the same time would be fun. I just know that if she had more than 6 seconds a day to herself, we’d be knee-deep in Dee’s bestsellers by now.
Lesley from Um…What?? – Not only is Lesley a superior scribbler because her posts are so wildly, insanely fun and engaging, but she’s also a superior scribbler in the literal sense – really she scribbles all over her blog. You can’t just go there, read a post and move on. No. No. There are all sorts of quips and asides and incidentals hidden in various corners and crevices of each post. Reading her blog really requires a day-trip. Bring a lunch.
The Uncouth Heathen – This is a blogger that often makes me say, “Shit, I wish I’d written that.” She’s whacky. She’s well-informed. She’s touching. She’s intelligent. She’s just all over terrific. You never know what you’re going to get over there, but you always know it’s going to be well worth your time.
The Maven from Stay-at-Home-Mayhem – She blogs way too much. I can’t keep up. And I really, really want to because The Maven always has a yarn to spin which totally unravels my mind.
If you haven’t visited these blogs before, please do so. They will enrich your blog-reading lives a whole bunch. But don’t leave me for them because then I would be devastated.
