My blog: E = Excellent

May 28, 2008

E Award

I haven’t been on here much lately due to a lot of outside activities and computer problems, so I was genuinely surprised and deeply honoured at being a recipient of an E = Excellent Award by Grace of Realizing Ordinary when I opened my site a few hours ago! She included my blog among the most thought-provoking, interesting and informative blogs in the blogosphere. Thanks a million, Grace, you’ve made my day!

Now comes the difficult task of nominating ten other blogs I consider excellent for the E Award from all of the wonderful blogs out there that I read regularly. And what makes a blog excellent? Michelle at Crow’s Feet put my thoughts into words better than I can:

“…For me it’s mostly those blogs that stand out not only for being interesting to read, but who reach for excellence through hard consistent work to keep their blogs updated, attractive and worth reading. Blogs that constantly challenge their readers to use their brains as well as their eyes – to think as well as read….”

So here they are, all of them interesting, sometimes humourous, always challenging, very worthwhile reading and truly excellent blogs, in no particular order:

1. This Canadian
2. Harper Valley
3. hazel8500
4. Hope and Onions
5. Woman At Mile 0
6. Rolling Back the Tide of Extremism, One Post at a Time
7. Ceasefire Insider Blog
8. Unrepentant Old Hippie
9. redjenny
10. Crooks and Liars
