I’m happy to say that Matilda Butler and Kendra Bonnett, co-authors of Rosie’s Daughters: The “First Woman To” Generation Tells Its Stories (www.RosiesDaughters.com) have given me a Superior Scribbler Award for my blog. Thank you, Matilda and Kendra. Their blog is pretty darn good too – visit it at www.womensmemoirs.com.
Here’s what a Superior Scribbler award is and how it works:
One of the rules for Superior Scribbler Award recipients is that you pass the award on to five other noteworthy bloggers. Not that easy – I read a lot of blogs, and enjoy them all. (Because why would I read blogs I don’t enjoy?) However, because sometimes you must choose, here are five blogs which celebrate, entertain, and inform on the topics of writing, history, and storytelling:
www.haikufarm.blogspot.com. Aarene Storm’s blog will charm you with its eclectic mixture of storytelling, haiku, horses, goats, dogs, cats, chickens, and a slight tip-tilted attitude.
Straight From Hel
www.straightfromhel.blogspot.com: Ideas may be heaven-sent, but these words come straight from Hel. Writing advice, publishing news, book reviews and links from writer and freelance editor, Helen Ginger. I read this blog nearly every day, and every day I either laugh out loud or learn something – and most days, both.
Passing It On
www.whenwordsmatter.typepad.com. Larry Lehmer’s wonderful blog shows you (shows, not tells!) how profound and meaningful one’s personal memories can be – and not just to you and your family, but to other inhabitants of our world. Larry is a professional personal historian who helps people preserve their family histories, and he’s heard a lot of great stories.
Wonders And Marvels
ww.wondersandmarvels.com. Professor Holly Tucker’s amazing blog where historians, both professional and amateur, can share and revel in the strange stories of the past. It’s billed as “A community for Curious Minds who love History, Odd Stories, and Good Reads,” and it lives up to the billing. Here you will learn things that you won’t quite believe – but they are true!
The Heart and Craft of Life Writing
Sharon Lippincott gives tips, guidelines, and observations that help ordinary people write extraordinary stories about their lives and experiences.
Congratulations Aarene, Helen, Holly, Larry, and Sharon. I love your blogs!
