A Blog Award and a Heads Up

with 16 comments

Thank you Kinna for giving me my first blog award! I’m uncommonly excited about it. It’s the One Lovely Blog Award, and the rules are as follows:

1. Post on your blog that you received the award.
2. Choose 15 other newly discovered bloggers that you love, and award them with this.
3. Send them a message/comment to let them know.

I started blogging last spring, which seems like yesterday, so it feels like all the blogs I follow are still new to me. I’ll do my best to weed out the newest, some of which I haven’t even commented on yet. 15 is kind of a lot! Apologies if any these bloggers have already been tagged. In no particular order:

1. Stuck in a Book

2. Whispering Gums

3. ANZ LitLovers LitBlog

4. Book Snob

5. Caravana de Recuerdoes

6. Book Gazing

7. Silver Threads

8. A Rat in the Book Pile

9. ImageNations

10. Coffee and a Book Chick

11. The Lesbrary

12. The Indextrious Reader

13. Biblibio

14. Jenny’s Books

15. Park Benches and Bookends

Whew! What a list. I will do my best to alert all my “nominees” in the next few days.

And now the heads up. I’m going back to school tomorrow after having taken some time off (insert nervous jitters here). I don’t know how this will affect my blogging. It might slow things down, might speed them up…I’m studying history and political theory, so most of my reading will obviously reflect that. Whether I will choose to post on stuff I’m reading for school or not is as yet undecided. So if things get a little quieter around here, or you notice a shift in content, you know why. Don’t worry though, I have usually been able to keep up a good balance of free reading and school reading in the past. 🙂

How about this: I’ll give the subjects of my classes for the semester and if anyone has a particular interest in reading material for those subjects, let me know in the comments and I will keep track of what we’re reading in that class and maybe compile a reading list and/or just make sure to write about them. This semester I’m taking classes on Islam in the 20th century, history of Marxism, “the age of extremes” (I think this one is about totalitarianisms? Will find out tomorrow I guess), and a history of New York City.

What does everyone think? Anyone else experiencing fall changes on their blogs or elsewhere in their lives?

  3. *blush* Aw, thanks! I really enjoy your blog too!

    I’d be very interested to hear about the books you’ll be reading for the Islam class. Good luck with school!

    • You’re quite welcome Jenny 🙂

      Okay, I will make a note to mention the books for that class once I’m a little farther into the course.

  5. Thanks Emily Jane… and you have put me in a tight corner. I am still wondering whom I am going to tag in this. Hmmm…. It might take some time for me to put it up and tag the others.

  8. Thank you Emily Jane! How lovely of you! I’m actually moving from London to New York in a couple of days and will be taking an internet hiatus for a short while until my life settles down, but when I am sorted, I will do an award post!
