I received the "You are a Great Read" Award from one of my favorite bloggers-- themom over at Attentive Aphorist. Thank you themom for the recognition! I really appreciate it. And the feeling is mutual, of course--you are truly a great read! Attentive Aphorist IS a great read and always so timely and updated frequently--sometimes several times a day. Be fore warned; she WILL speak her mind! I think that's why I like her blog so much!

This award is especially nice, because it has no mandated instructions to follow. It's just a nice gesture! I'm not formally awarding any particular blogs for this award, but I do want to give recognition to a few of my favorites that are written by women, since it is a woman in the award picture. And I have a disclaimer: the woman in the award icon is in no way intended to represent how the bloggers that I mention look, dress, act, what she reads, or any kind of likeness of the image whatsoever!
The award sure would look 'purdy' on Blonde Goddess' blog--"Huh? The Blonde Godess is Confused...", whether in a post or on her sidebar. Her blog is such a good read. It's possible that the award picture has already appeared on her creative blog (minus the caption). Let me explain--she has this unique ability to tell a true story and make it hilarious by using some of the funniest pictures and captions on the Internet! You should check it out sometime!
Another one of my favorite blogs that is a "good read" is Pwn Star. Pictures are rare on her blog, so I don't expect to see this one there. But you never know with her! She is very unpredictable. I love that about her blog. You never know what to expect, but you can always expect a good read. It's a personal blog in every sense of the word! Be sure and read her profile!
One blog that really stands out is True Crime Book Reviews, which is definitely a good read! The blog is just what the title says and is your one stop for reviews on true crime books. For readers of true crime stories, you have the option to search by true crime writer, by title, or by true crime genre. The blog also has many links for readers to buy books online and to access other reader reviews. And who wouldn't want a free book? True Crime Book Reviews is known for its ongoing book giveaways too! If you love true crime books, then you will want to follow this blog.
And I can't resist telling you about a blog called Six Pence and a Blue Moon. It too is a good read. I only recently discovered it, but it has quickly became one of my daily must read favorites blogs. At first glance you night think it is a photo blog, but there is some good writing in the archives too. If you like personal blogs, this will probably become one of your favorites.
And last but not least, I want to give praise to a blogger that has taught me so much and has a very interesting blog! Elizabeth's Hot Topics will update frequently day and night with the latest events happening and what's hot at the moment, and anything that has proved to be interesting. Her blog is very popular and if you notice my 'Widgetbox Network' widget about half way down on my sidebar, you will see that her blog is usually in the number one spot of "Musings, Etc." The last time I checked, there were over 126 blogs in that category, so you do the math! She also authors a couple of other interesting blogs that can be found on her blog in the upper right corner under "My Other Blogs." Beth, your blog is a great read! Thank you for taking the time to publish such a great blog.
As I said in the beginning, this award has no mandated instructions, and as themom put it, IT JUST IS! So, I am offering it out to ALL of you that read this. Feel free to help yourself to it! If you do accept it, a link back to this blog would be nice! Thanks!
Again, a big thanks to themom at Attentive Aphorist.
