Prolific Blogger Award

I was nominated by the kind Catherine Mede for a prolific blogger award (despite the fact that I have been somewhat slack of late). Hopefully in February I shall prove to be a little more deserving of the term.

Many of the excellent writery bloggers that I follow have already been nominated by others but here are seven amazingly stupendous blogs to check out if you don’t already follow them:

Talula – a cute, upbeat blog (written by an even cuter, upbeat writer) that features lots of enjoyable posts about many things including, craft, roleplaying, books reviews, weekly writing updates and Things I Love Thursday.

From the morgue – loads of interesting posts on a range of subjects including politics, current events, environment and reviews from a busy chap who also manages to include some writing progress reports in the mix as well. The regular Friday links are always great, frequently mind-boggling and definitely worth a look.

Multi-Dimensional – great analytical and thought-provoking blogging on screenwriting, game design, developing processes and reviews as well.

Podagogue – great reviews from the world of podcasting (something I just started getting into last year) as well as Freshly Ground (a blog of great food that can induce dangerous levels of salivating food envy).

Matt Cowens – the LJ of the Significant Other Writer of the Cowens household. He also does excellent cartoons and sometimes posts them up here.

Sally McLennan
– has an totally gorgeous website which includes her blog on a variety of subjects, often with lovely photos.

Books in the Trees – the thinking-writers’ blog by author Tim Jones. Lots of fantastic posts as many topics as well as interviews with writers and reviews.

Prolific Blogger Award Rules | ONE: Every winner is expected to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. | TWO: Each Prolific Blogger is asked to link to the blog from which he/she has received this award. | THREE: Every Prolific Blogger is asked to link back to this post, which explains the origins of the award. | FOUR: Every Prolific Blogger is asked to visit the post listed in rule #3 and add his/her name to the “Mr. Linky” at the bottom.

Edit: I'm going to copy the wise Ripley Patton by adding that I don't expect the above prolific bloggers to list seven bloggers, unless they wish to do so. :-)

Thanks so much! And I will see if I can come up with my own set of Prolific Bloggers within the next week or so. (Though I'm really planning to head out after that whole "unthinking writers" demographic this year :-))

Debbie Cowens said...

Awesome. I look forward to seeing your list (and the posts that branch out to appeal to unthinking writers as well :-))

Jenni said...

Aww, thanks Debs! I shall do my list on the weekend I think.

Steve Hickey said...

And, several weeks later, this not-so-prolific blogger (of late) gets around to following up the cream buns award:
