E is for Excellent


Jeff of Psychosomaticwit has made my morning by putting me on his list of blogs worthy to be called "Excellent" ...as is his own! ;-)

Now my choice of blogs I consider excellent. As Jeff said on his blog - "This is both easy and hard. It is easy because there are many excellent blogs out there. It is hard, because choosing is ALWAYS hard."

I know so many unique and interesting blogs. What makes a blog excellent? For me it's mostly those blogs that stand out not only for being interesting to read, but who reach for excellence through hard consistent work to keep their blogs updated, attractive and worth reading. Blogs that constantly challenge their readers to use their brains as well as their eyes - to think as well as read. To narrow the list down further I've concentrated on thos blogs who have changed how I percieve the world - who have also made me grow.
Here's my list of choices, omitting a few wonderful blogs that Jeff has already awarded himself and adding some very recent blogs that have already enriched and/or changed my world view:

1. Cliff, of WIXY's Gone Bananas
2. PV of Finding Me
3. Emma of Herstory
4. Amel of Amel's Realm
5. Shastri of a Musing of Shastri
6.Twilight of Learning Curve on the Ecliptic
7. Gi Gi of Guyana
8. Tint of Tint's Meanderings
9. Grace of Realizing Ordinary
10. Sadiq of Inspirations and Creative Thoughts

Thank you for this, Michelle. It means a lot to me, it really does. Only yesterday I was scribbling on paper why I appreciate the kind words of others. I will try to blog what I've written soon. I've been a tad busy recently. Fortunately, I've collected tons of good stuff to write about.

I especially like this, "Blogs that constantly challenge their readers to use their brains as well as their eyes - to think as well as read."

Cliff and Amel

I'm glad the award made your days brighter, since your blogs both make my internet reading brighter. :-)

and thank you for the hugs, Amel, Tint and Twilight! (((HUGS BACK)))

What a nice bit of serendipity that I picked the right number for you. ;-)

(((Jeff))) there, is that better? :-D

Thank you :-)

Keep writing those thought-provoking posts. :-)

I'm so glad I found your blog. I don't get to read blogs as much as I wish, but I will be visiting yours whenever I can as it is well-worth the time spent.

How funny life is! Your blog was one of the first I ever found online and I was so awed by your writing I never replied for about two months of reading. You have a wonderful gift for weaving life into words. Your posts are always a joy to read.
