A Smorgasbord of Blogs

Awards to Some Excellent Blogs:

To the Mirror because though I frequently don’t agree with their politics, they still make me roar with laughter at their clever (though nasty) insights!

To Celluloid Blonde because she can knock my socks off with a paragraph or two on nothing.

To SoHum Parlance because I am amazed at the quality of research and thoughtful comments Eric puts out on a wide variety of subjects and he does it so frequently.

To Oscar because he composes some of the best essays/fiction I’ve read and he’s free! This is one of my favorites.

To Jen because she scrambles the stories of her life with the business of selling her books and her take on politics and spices it all with a dash a humor.

 

To Faust and SciFi TV Geek because I love their different takes on one of my favorite genres.

 

To Bob Flame because, though they are too infrequent, his essays are beautifully crafted.

 

To Defiant Muse because she writes mothering (and other life) stories honestly and well.

 

To Ernie because his blog makes me feel at home. With wonderful stories, he evokes the Humboldt I grew up in.

 

My list started with a blog that is bitter and funny but ended with one that is sweet and smart. There is a whole range of flavors in between. I love a smorgasbord of differently flavored blogs. I tried to pick a variety but my blogroll is full of other great ones. Check out one or two and see if you can resist going back for seconds.

  • Yayyyyy! I made the list! I love Ernie’s blog and the Mirror cracks me up.
    I’m pretty eclectic in my blogroll too.
    Great list. Off to check out some of the ones I don’t know!

  • Yay! Thanks, Kym.

    Now I guess I have to start reading more blogs so I can get up to the required 10. That’s going to seriously cut into my quiz-taking time.

  • Jen, I just was over on Celluloid Blond and saw you had been there. You’ll love her essays. Check out the photos, too. My husband always loves them.

    Dan, If you haven’t already been to Chris’s SciFi TV Geek, try it. He writes good solid analysis–especially on Firefly and BSG.

  • I did check it out. His stuff is really good…much more detailed and analysis-y than the drive-by stuff I do. 🙂

  • Hey, you guys….thanks for the great comments on my blog.

    Dan: I really like your site too. I’m going to put it on my routine check list for blog surfing.

    Kym: you’re at the top of my top ten for sure, if I can ever get back to blogging.

    I hope to get back to it once my house move is finished. For now, all I can manage to say is: MOVING SUCKS!

  • Thank’s for the warm fuzzy words and the “Award”.

    Can I wait ’til I get back from vacation to noninate? I find that most blogs have something that interests me.

    I particularly like yours! The photography is outstanding, and even some of the poetry is good… (just kidding, guys arn’t suposed to like poetry)

  • Dan, your writing is excellent. I keep coming back for more.

    Chris, I despise moving! Something always breaks. I hope you get back to blogging soon. I’m dragging my feet on BSG hoping you catch up;>

    Ernie,
    Even if you won’t rhyme
    Have a wonderful time.
    Your trip on the ship
    Excuses the dip
    in number of posts.

  • Thanks, Kym. It’s good to know people are reading and enjoying.

    Of course, now I feel an overwhelming burden of pressure to keep bringing my A Game…or at least a solid B+ Game.

  • I honored and humbled to be included on such a fine list. SoHum and Ernie are also among my favorites. As for the infrequent tag, I all-too-heartily agree with ya. Just thrilled that though I’ve stepped out for a moment, I’m not forgotten, at least not yet. Thanks for the shout out, Kym. You’re one of my favorites around here.

  • I read Newsweek, Good Housekeeping, and a few other quality magazines. Yet, I am constantly amazed that the quality of many of my favorite blogs equals the material I pay for.
