For the first day BBAW we are asked to highlight a few blogs that did not make a shortlist for the big awards. It is hard because I have close to 100 blogs in my Google Reader and they are all there because I like reading them! But, it’s always nice to give a shout out to other bloggers who are extra special to me. I have a 9 in ’09 feature and my interview partner for tomorrow answered 9 questions, so I think I’ll pick 9 blogs.
Margot at Joyfully Retired – Her blog makes me feel right at home. If you haven’t stopped by, you are missing out on a great blog and a great lady 🙂
Molly and Andy at The Bumbles – Fun and fresh these two always have something interesting going on.
Trupti at Violet Crush – Creative and a good mix of books.
Heather at Book Addiction – Her reviews are top notch.
Staci at Life in the Thumb– She’s a fellow midwesterner with a cool name 🙂 and her blog is a must read.
Wendy at Musings of a Bookish Kitty – She’s got a little of everything and it’s all good.
Debbie at Wrighty Reads – For some reason I am obsessed with her hammock, oh, and her other posts 🙂
Jenny at Jenny Loves to Read – I feel right at home at Jenny’s and you will too.
Michael at A Few Minutes with Michael – Wonderful new blogger who jumped right to the crazy blogging community.
Don’t see your blog on here? You might have been next. I started typing and then I realized I had 9, but I’ve still got lots of very cool and awesome blogs I want to include. But I can’t. When I get some time I need to update my blogroll which I haven’t done for ages. I guess the blogroll has my nominations, these 9 are the shortlist, and the winner is me because I get to interact with these great bloggers everyday.
