Just before New Year’s Eve, Museswings kindly included me in a list of recipients of the “Best Blog 2008” award. I feel honoured to have been represented amongst such a worthy group, but whereas she chose to designate the award to a rather large group, I feel compelled to single out but a few. I would give this right back to Cynthia, but she already has one and I’m sure others will pass it to her as well, so she doesn’t need it from me.
Now, I know that most of the other writers with whom I associate in the blog-world, will not be inclined to flaunt an award such as this, so I won’t even try to give it to them. They know who they are and they should know to whom I would give it.
So, instead, I will focus on those blogs that have an eclecticism to which I am consistently drawn, to fill me up with information and wisdom I have heretofore not come across, humour that makes me snort, snicker, chuckle, choke, guffaw or gasp with laughter; photographs and artwork that evoke emotions of all kinds; recipes, gadgets, videos, music, quotations – all meant to entertain and enlighten.
There are so many blogs that are worthy of this award. So many folks are putting out quality stuff and it’s hard to narrow them all down, but I must acknowledge 3 in particular:
I discovered Blicky Kitty rather late in the year, but Blicky has consistently educated me and made me giggle with delight every time. Each visit I can look forward to a lesson and a good laugh. Blicky is one smart kitty!
Life at Willow Manor
Willow rightfully became a “Blog of Note” recently and now has a flock of followers, but she never loses her ability to make every single person feel right at home at Willow Manor. She is the perfect hostess.
Linda and her Twaddle
Linda’s view on life (from Down Under) is funny, family-oriented and frequently surprising. She is not just a fellow-blogger, but a thoughtful friend as well.
Those are my picks. Check them out for yourself and see why I can’t stay away from these fantastic blogs.
