I received a Blog Lovin' award from London-based blogger Huma at Her Little Place. Huma, who writes for The Guardian and The Observer, has, among other things, a post devoted entirely to cupcakes. This is the kind of journalism I have come to respect.
At any rate, blog awards are to be passed on to other bloggers, which is a stressful thing for a intronerd like myself. I was the one who never passed on the chain letter and got 10 years of bad luck. I hate board games. I'm not a huggy person. Group things, especially group things of a warm and fuzzy nature, boggle my mind, and I know I'm going to do it wrong.
So, with that in mind, I will pass this award along to a couple of blogs that are not mega huge (because mega huge blogs don't need them anyway) and are of the home design-y genre since the world is a big place and you have to limit it somehow:
The City Sage for gorgeous pics and a very weird sense of humor. (Orphaned pony charities and herds of Panton chairs.)
I Suwannee for cool bookcases and other stuff and for being hilarious. (Mini-sombreros and the chifferobe, among others.)
The Estate of Things for interesting stuff, DIYS, public disagreements, and being hilarious.
I think there's a trend here.
Noel Marie for tips on frugal living in Brooklyn.
Down and Out Chic for being so chipper.
And some follower awards: (Don't you think followers deserve awards, too?)
Red Shoes for longevity and thoughtful comments.
Karen for great tips.
Alek for consistency.
Christine for showing up just about every day even though she links to 4o million blogs and has hundreds of followers.
Angelo Surmelis for being my one and only celebrity follower.
I'm done, right?
I have to tell all of these people they got an award?
What a racket. I'm too lazy for that.
(Also if I've missed someone, please give yourself an award. I love you all.)
