I won a blogging award! February 19, 2009

I’m extremely proud (and stunned) to say that I’ve been nominated for a Premio Dardos blogging award. I was given the award by the wonderful Sibylle, whose blog, In Training For A Heroine, is a fascinating look at books, films, TV shows and music that capture her rather singular attention. So thank you very much, Sibylle!

Premio Dardos Award

Premio Dardos Award

“Premio Dardos” means “prize darts” in Spanish.

The Dardos Award is given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing. These stamps were created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.


1. Accept the award by posting it on your blog along with the name of the person that has granted the award and a link to his/her blog.
2. Pass the award to another five blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment, remembering to contact each of them to let them know they have been selected for this award.

Because I’m a bit of a rebel, not all of my designated awards will be going to sites which are primarily blogs.

Anyway, the first person I’m giving it to is Raphael, whose daily musings on life, the universe and everything else, find expression in his wondrous webcomic Noire. Thanks for always brightening my day!

Next up is Ceres Wunderkind (otherwise known as Peter), whose writing is an inspiration to me. His blog can be found here.

The third recipient is Confessions of a Bibliovore, which I stumbled upon while searching for reviews of Pagan’s Crusade. This blog is a truly excellent resource for anyone interested in children’s and YA literature.

Next up is author Kate Elliott’s blog, which is packed full of interesting information about all things SF, fantasy and writing in general. I especially enjoy the essays she writes for sites such as DeepGenre.

My final award goes to Jo Walton’s blog. Walton is an author, and her blog gives excellent insight into the writing process. I especially enjoy her poetry.
