MY BBAW Shortlist


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.

    It was so hard to come up with a list, wasn’t it? I love all of those blogs and never knew Trupti’s name – I always thought it was Violet!

    You know you would be on here if you hadn’t already received some BBAW love!

    Aw shucks Stacy, I’m blushing… Thanks so much for including me on your list! These are all terrific and I’m honored you thought of me too. I always enjoy coming to your blog also. You make it such a fun, creative, interesting place to visit. You do an excellent job! 🙂

    Thank you so much, Stacy! I’m honored that you included me on your list. I really enjoy your blog as well–and your comments on mine. I’m so lucky to know you. And it looks like I have a few more new blogs to check out. 🙂

    Anytime someone mentions us in the book blogging community I feel honored. We barely scratch the surface in our posts with books – you and the rest of your selections are the true honorees to me.

    You have disclosed my identity Stacy 🙂

    Kathy: Usually people shorten Violet Crush to Violet, My email id is acually elizascott but it isn’t my realy name. I had it when I was working in a US call center and I kept it to open accounts on sites that need signing up to read articles. I opened a blog with the same id bcoz i wasn’t sure I wanted to continue with it. But it stuck and explaining that my name is actually Trupti is a lot of hassle. So I just let it be 🙂

    I’m going to change my email address though and I guess I need to do a post about it soemtime after BBAW.

    Thank you so much Stacy for highlighting my blog. I love your blog and your quizzes too.
