So we've both been kickin' ass and my foot ain't even sore. Cool!
Here are the criteria for giving the award.
Do you know any bloggers that kick ass?
Maybe they’ve got incredible, original content. Or they’re overflowing with creativity. Is it someone that helps you become a better blogger? Or a bloggy friend you know you can count on? Or maybe it’s someone who simply inspires you to be a better person… or someone else who sends you to the floor, laughing your ass off.
Whatever the reason may be, I’m sure you know at least a couple of bloggers that kick ass. Well… why not tell ‘em so?
The rules to this are as follows:
1) Choose five other bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers"
2) Let them know that they have received an award.
3) Link back to both the person who awarded you and also to http://www.mammadawg.com/
4) Visit the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment.
So - my choices for the Kick Ass blogger award are going to be challenging, since Politits, Liberality, and OKJimm's Eggroll Emporium are all out of the running because they were all part of the recent chain. Moomin Light is also out of the running for the same reason. I also want to avoid awarding blogs Moomin Light may be planning to recognize. But others also have content I must visit for the unique viewpoint and the kick ass creativity. Here are the first five that came to mind, in no particular order.
Crackskullbob Squarespace - The highly creative and irreverent blog of sketch fiend Wally Torta (aka Sparky Donatello). I've probably been visiting Sparky's space as long as any other blog but Moomin Light's. I knew it before it was Crackskullbob's. We've even visited a restaurant in Norfolk after seeing countless Torta sketches of it, and we weren't disappointed. Don't be confused by the split personality with Ruben... read back far enough and you'll get the whole story.
The Pagan Sphinx - A fellow art lover and INFP, featuring the Friday Nudes, posts about museums and artists, other thoughts about life, education, politics, social issues, and everything else. I feel a kinship with this gentle lady, and I love reading her blog.
G.D.Gearino - Words Assembled Well - a well crafted daily piece by a journalist "retired" from the Raleigh News and Observer. Straight shooting opinions and reporting, "links gone wild," a local point of view with a wider frame of mind. I can't decide whether I like the writing, the well researched content, or the humor best. G.D. also provides a window into the world of journalism.
Adventures Ink - While the posts aren't frequent, the content is like waiting for a monthly illustrated serial. Personal, uniquely illustrated stories from her life, and the life and thoughts of Crow. I keep going back between posts to look at the drawings again and again.
Reiter's Block - Deeply considered and intelligently written essays on social issues, faith, writing, poetry, and more. Jendi is a published poet, working on several writing projects including a novel. She is also the Vice President of Winning Writers. I look forward to her posts about theology, the unique viewpoint and verse of her penpal poet in prison, and excerpts of her upcoming books.
I can't wait to see their choices! And whom Moomin Light picks, as well.
