This blog has been in existence less than a year and it is amazing how much enjoyment I have derived from blogging, sharing my thoughts on books, and learning from other bloggers during that time.
I started blogging to write about the books I read (mostly mysteries) and to be able to remember what I like about a book or an author and why. (I am getting older. It is amazing how fast the plot and other characteristics of a book disappear from my mind.) I like to do research, so I get to add a little research about an author or a book now and then. Without the stress of it being work.
Just recently, I learned that Sergio at Tipping My Fedora had included me in his list of bloggers deserving of the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award.
The ‘rules’ for the award are simple:
1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award
2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.
3. Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award at The Thought Palette and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)
4. Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them
5. You can now also join our Facebook page – click the link here ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook page.
6. As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar.
I am very appreciative of Sergio's vote and I am taking this opportunity to list some other blogs that I find both informative and entertaining. Awards are subjective, but this is the perfect opportunity to express my appreciation in turn.
Tipping My Fedora would of course be on my list, but he already has six votes. I could say something about each of these blogs but the best thing to do is go and check them out yourself. All of these books have added books to my To Be Read stacks or taught me new and wondrous things, and often both.
So here is my list of blogs (in no order):
- Confessions of a Mystery Novelist
- Chess, Comics, Crosswords, Books, Music, Cinema
- In Search of the Classic Mystery Novel
- Mysteries and More from Saskatchewan
- MYSTERIES in PARADISE
