I have been blogging for three years (I know, I can't believe it either--I wanted to do some sort of big blog bash like other people but I struggle to come up with creative new iniatives in blogland) but this is my first ever blog award! I'm so excited because it comes from one of my new favorite bloggers Jen at Daily Mish Mash. Jen is a great writer, lover of all things Ryan Gosling, and funny in a way I could only wish to be. (by the way I discovered Jen through American Idol recaps at Boomama so participating in those sorts of things really can help you find new bloggers/readers)
So like all things in life, this award comes with the condition that I pass it on. This is actually sort of difficult for me (I love every blog I read), but here goes! (by the way, blogging awards like this are a girly thing, right? Euphrony?)
I chose two I'd like to acknowledge because they have great blogs. I didn't choose any males which actually made this task surprisingly difficult.
First I pass it on to Julie of Booking Mama. Julie writes the best kind of book reviews...a lot of gut reaction and not so much nit-picking the technical. She's honest but always manages to say something upbeat as well. I've added about a million books to my TBR pile from her blog.
Secondly, Texas in Africa who manages to find and share all the absurd news in the world. But some of her longer more heartfelt posts have really touched me.
By the way there are two new polls up for you LOST and American Idol fans so pop over for a visit and cast your vote.
