The gracious and generous Ginger has handed me a handsome honorarium. How could I possibly refuse? My only caveat is that I don't read blogs because of their design or because they "contribute to the blogosphere," whatever the hell that means. I pretty much read my friends' blogs to see what they're up to. Nonetheless, here it is.
These are the rules to accept the award:
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also contribute to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and a link to his/her blog to be visited by everyone.
5. To show these rules.
In no specific order:
Ronnie, the KreweQueen of the good ship (and family blog) Zombie Princess. She writes about our (my!) life and I barely recognize it because it sounds so much better when she tells it.
Linda at FourLittleBirds because she's honest and interesting.
Laura at CenterDownHome because she's genuine and is one of the few blogs which I can reference which has an artistic component. She's very skilled.
Nonimaginary Kelly at ShesInTransition because she's insightful and an innovative writer.
Mary at Zenmomma'sGarden because she's The Conference Goddess and a swell person.
Laureen at TheExcellentAdventure because she's a thoughtful writer and lives on a 47' cat.
P.S. For those of you wedded to limited, small-minded, schoolish versions of what they laughably call "math," the above list is 5 - for large values of 5. Ok?
