Blog Worthies

There are two different sets of blogs I want to call your attention to in this post. The first is from our

November CSFF Blog Tour. As you may remember, I want readers to select the November CSFF Top Blogger Award winner. Please take time during this next week to check out those eligible, then vote:

Kathy Brasby
Valerie Comer
Jason Isbell
John Otte
Keanan Brand (recently added)

Secondly, A Christian Worldview of Fiction has been honored by a fellow blogger, Melissa Meeks, with the Premio Dardos Blog Award: This award recognizes bloggers for their efforts to transmit cultural, ethical, literary and personal values every day in their writing.

Now that’s a huge compliment! 😀 I’m grateful to Melissa for including this blog. As it turns out, the Premio Dardos Blog Award is a pass-it-along prize.

The rules of this award:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person that has granted the award and his or her blog link.
2) Pass the award to other 15 blogs that are worthy of this acknowledgment. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Melissa then adds an important qualifier:

The rules say to nominate fifteen more blogs for this award however I realize many of us don’t have the time to read that many blogs on a regular basis so I’m going to say nominate up to 15 but however many you come up with is just fine by me. I’m sure the whole point of this is simply to acknowledge other Bloggers who encourage and inspire us with their posts and friendships virtual or IRL (in real life).

Deciding who to include is a hard call because there are many worthy blogs, and my time is limited. I know I miss a lot of good blogging. But here are my choices.

Sally Apokedak – An Observation of Mercy is her personal blog, not her author blog. It’s full of good thoughts related to her faith in Jesus Christ.

Nicole Petrino-Salter – one of the blogger I follow on Bloglines. Her content just might define that which contains cultural, ethical, literary and personal values.

Mike Duran – if you want to read a blog that makes you think, be sure to visit Mike’s Decompose as often as possible.

Kim – over at Window to My World. A top reviewer, you can count on fresh, original content from her.

Wayne Thomas Batson – sees life through Christian eyes and blogs accordingly.

Phyllis Wheeler – a fairly new blogger and one of the most recent members of CSFF. The Christian Fantasy Review is a blog after my own heart! 😀

John Otte – CSFF Blogger extraordinaire. Nearly every month his Least Read blog is up for award.

Well, there are many more. Some I know don’t have time or have decided not to participate in meme-like posts: Karen Hancock and Brandilyn Collins are a few that come to mind at once. Others who probably have that same policy are Rachelle Gardner and Karen Ball. Then there are those who have already been tagged for this award (15 is a rather large number of bloggers) and those I’m forgetting because I’ve already taken too long on this post.

Suffice it to say, there’s lots and lots and lots of good reading out there. During your Thanksgiving break, for those of you in the US, take some time to read some of these worthy blogs.
