The "You Make My Day" Award

A week or so ago Suey at It's All About Books was generous enough to give me the "You Make My Day"Award. I was a bit shocked to find that there are actually people out there still reading my blog, seeing as I never actually post to it any more. (Or so it seems!) This little award has been going around for a couple of weeks and my Google Reader subscriptions have increased a lot because of it. This means, however, that I'm having a hard time figuring out who *I* want to give it to. I'm worried that I'll leave someone I love out! I don't have a blogroll on my blog (mainly cause I'm too dang lazy to do it) and I realize this means that no one knows who I read and love!

I am subscribed to 286 blogs on Google Reader. Now, some of those are defunct, and some of those I just glance at the topic title and skim, but there's still a good number of them that I read every day. How'm I supposed to narrow that down?? So instead of giving out the award, here's what I'm gonna do- Over there to the right, a little ways down, there is a section of shared items (Great posts from other bloggers!) I'm sometimes a bit lax about marking items shared, but I promise to be more generous in the future. If you click on the little "read more" at the bottom, you can even subscribe to a feed of them! I know, this is a bit of a cheat, but I'd rather send you off to see ALL my favorites than just the first few that pop into my head.
Thanks again, Suey, for the award. I love knowing that I do have a FEW readers left! Real content is coming soon! I hope!
In the meantime, check out my newest blogging endeavor We'd Rather Read. This one is a joint blog with some friends that promises to be a lot of fun- once we get it off the ground. If you're interested in blogging with us drop me a line, we could use one or two more readers... bookslistslifeATgmail works fine.


  1. Wow, and I thought I subscribed to a lot of blogs.

  2. Why am I JUST now finding out about this google reader? I check my blogs the old fashioned clicking on my links on the sidebar--which only happens every few days when I can steal a free minute at work or home. There is an easier way??? I'm definitely checking this out.

  3. That is a serious amount of blogs to read. I'd love to see the list though, if you ever have a couple of hours spare :)

  4. Okay, that is a lot of blogs to read! And I'm so glad you won that award ... and thanks for stopping by and saying hi on my blog! It was nice .. and made my day!
