You know, it’s true that if you just crap on about rubbish for long enough, people will eventually start recognising you for it. You’ll become a trusted source of crap. Well, that’s me. The very kind Tony Noland over at Landless has awarded me a Prolific Blogger Award, after getting one himself. See, that’s the other thing that works – surround yourself with like-minded people and whatever it is you’re doing doesn’t seem at all weird. Just look at train spotters or swingers.
The rules of the thing are that you then have to nominate some verbose bastards of your own and pass the award on to them. Seven of them, apparently. By Shiva’s Blue Shaft, do I really have to think of seven prolific bloggers?
Well, here goes. I’m going to pass this award on to people that blog a lot about interesting stuff that I read on a regular basis. I’ll try to get a variety of subject matter in and post them in alphabetical order by blog name:
A Nadder – “a jewish atheist blogs the bible and rants about other stuff.” Michael Fridman discusses all kinds of religious, moral and philosophical ideas. Be warned though, there’s often some pretty confronting images on this blog.
HorrorScope – The Australian Dark Fiction weblog.
Jason Fischer – Of all the writers that blog I chose Jason, partly through completely random selection and partly because he blogs some fucking funny stuff sometimes, like the Knife-Wielding Eagle Of Motivation.
Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist – Fantasy news, reviews, nonsense and giveaways.
Sleep Talkin’ Man – The random mumblings of an Englishman that talks a lot in his sleep. Seriously, this is my new favourite blog.
The Creative Penn – Writing, Publishing Options, Sales and Promotion. Joanna Penn is more than prolific and very informative.
The Furnace – Geek culture from Lord Shaper.
So there you go – I hope you find something interesting and new among those.
