Nepotism Can't Be All Bad...

Aw, shucks,

Jeremy Kelly loves my blog...

Catherine J. Gardner loves my blog...

Natalie L. Sin loves my blog...

J.C. Tabler loves my blog...

and Jamie Eyberg loves my blog.

Because I have been nominated, I have a few rules to follow before the money starts rolling in (heh):

1)Add the logo of your award to your blog.
2)Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3)Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4)Add links to those blogs on your blogs.
5)Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
SO...I nominate the following:

Five new ones...
Jodi Lee Bleeds - great insight on being an editor and writer and mom. Whew.
Camille Alexa's Live Journal - more great insight on being an editor and writer. Plus her writing rocks.
Carrie Harris The Blog - funny and inspirational. Always something killer.
Here There Be Tygers - Felicity Dowker keeps it real down-under.

and the nepotism:
J.C. Tabler, Mediocre Writer - great voice. And he called me Mr. Polson.
The Poisoned Apple - the social glue of the blogosphere.
Written by Sin - funny. Great picture posts.
Join the Birdies - gut honesty, talks about the challenges of this writing thing.
A Continuity of Parks - the guy likes Julio Cortázar. What more do I need to say? may seem like cheating, but I do really love and read these blogs.

Pardon the brevity of my comments, but I'll be fired if I don't do some work. ;)


Jamie Eyberg said...

Get back to work, and thank you.

Carrie Harris said...

Yeah. What Jamie said. :)

Although I'm starting to feel bad that I didn't tag more people. Because I quite literally said to myself: Self, you shouldn't tag everyone in that group, because they all seem to know each other and you're relatively new to them, and you will look like a suckup.

Although maybe I should embrace my suckupiness.

Catherine J Gardner said...

Hee! Hee! I've cheated and added a list of several more blogs. The guilt at leaving people out was just too much.

Oh, and I got a few suspicious looks at work this morning when it hit 8 and I was still on the internet. Gulp!

Natalie L. Sin said...

This has al been very educational. I'm finding out about so many other blogs!

Barry Napier said...

Mucho thanks. Just dropping comments in lieu of actually participating in the exercise. Not that I don't want to...just lack of time and all that.

I do sense that all of us are creating quite the little group though...

Felicity Dowker said...

I am feeling supreme cliquey bliss right now. And by the way - Love Ya Blog. :o)

Camille Alexa said...

I tend to get in trouble when I call people Mr. Polson. Especially when know...aren't.

Am loving Tainted. Thanks for such a rockin' project.
