The aim of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award is to acknowledge writing excellence in the spirit of Jane Austen’s genius in amusing and delighting readers with her irony, humour, wit and talent for keen observation. Recipients will uphold the highest standards in the art of the sparkling banter, witty repartee, and gentle reprove. This award was created by the blogging team of Jane Austen Today to acknowledge superior writing over the Internet and promote Jane Austen’s brilliance.
My nominees for this award are:
Northern Reflections - this blog is extremely well written and delves intelligently into current events, politics, and ideas, generally.
AskCherLock.com - diverting indeed, the subjects of this blog range wonderfully from politics and current affairs to economics and self-awareness - all with pointed and witty perception.
The Guy's Perspective - a funny, serious, informative, fun blog about the male perspective on life, love, and many other things.
arthiker - the digital art and musings of Tomas Karkalas of Lithuania. The digital photography is quite stunning and the musings thought provoking.
A little piece of me - a personal blog that entertains with doodles, photography, and humourous anecdotes and observations.
chickenbus tales - fascinating, true stories from the author's travels - travels that in and of themselves are fascinating (no driving trips to grandma's house here). This is a new blog, and one I hope continues.
Recipients, please claim your award by copying the Excessively Diverting Blog Award badge, posting it on your blog, listing the name of the person who nominated you, and linking to their blog. Then nominate seven (7) other blogs that you feel meet or exceed the standards set forth. Nominees may place the Excessively Diverting badge in their side bar and enjoy the appreciation of their fellow bloggers for recognition of their talent.
