Aw, you guys!

Part of the reason I find blogging is so addictive is that the feedback is so fast. If only all my other written ramblings could come back with comments so quickly...

So it is really, really lovely to have any of my blog buddies give me a blog award. I am feeling the love this week though with multiple awards:

Stepwise Girl gave me this one:

while ScienceGirl and Dr. A / Dr. J gave me this one:

Thank you, all of you! You're all awesome.

I read a LOT of blogs, and my "friends and favourites" folder in Google Reader is huge. I see that many of them have already been given one or other of these awards, so in an attempt to share the love as widely as possible, I'll do my best not to duplicate!

I pass both these awards on to:

Ruchi aka Arduous, who is an inspiration. Can't wait to read your London posts, Ruchi!

Crystal, who I hope won't mind if I call her adorable!

Infinite Science, who is a real-life friend as well as a blog buddy and writes the kind of posts that I shy away from as requiring far too much thought.

Uphilldowndale, who takes wonderful photographs and is a great story teller. I haven't quite figured out exactly where she's based, but it's not a million miles away from "home" (York).

Okham, whose infamous washing machine post is worthy of several awards all of its own. Oh, and sometimes there's physics.

Isis the Scientist, who is a new addition to my favourites folder. I am in awe. Seriously.

Digital Cuttlefish, who has made a very welcome return to blogging this week after a couple of months away.

Awardees, here are the official "instructions":

1. Put the logo on your blog
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog
5. Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

p.s. I almost listed a Nature Network blog or two, but feared the consequences after unsuccessful attempts (by me and others) to introduce the concepts of carnivals and blog rolls... it's like a different country over there or something, not necessarily bad, just... different.


  1. Thank you very much for the link love Cath! I enjoy coming by your way quite a bit myself.

  2. Hey, thank you ! The problem is, I don't read that many blogs and almost all the ones I read have already been nominated... I need to look for some overlooked gem somewhere.

  3. You're all very welcome! Keep up the good work.

  4. You want feedback? You gots feedback on your Muppet hatin'.


  5. **blushing** thank you!!! i feel so honored! like, maybe i just won the oscars of blogging!? you are fabulous and i adore your blog!! keep up the good work!


I promise to respond to all respectful non-spam comments! Don't be shy! Oh, and please don't type my surname in your comments; I know you all know what it is, but I'd prefer Google to rank other pages before this blog.
