I'm sorry, I know I'm a bit slow with these things. I know several people have nominated me for the "You Make My Day" award ... Hakucho, Nina, Allison, CactusNeedles, Luvtoknit. I'm tickled pink to discover that I, in my obscure little corner of Blogland, can make someone's day.
Here are the rules: Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times.
Gosh, it's so hard to pick. There are so many to choose from, and I know I can't enumerate everyone, so many people are left out. My blog reading comes in spurts. I can't seem to manage blog reading daily as most people do. However I do eventually make it around to all the ones I find interesting, inspiring, or just make me smile. I don't always comment on them so some may be surprised that I actually read their blogs. (And sometimes I can't comment because I have this quirk with my laptop where my keyboard controls don't always work, but I can still mouse around).
I have to mention my Elannite KnitBuds, some have blogs while others don't. You can see see the blogs in the Elannites Webring (there's also an Elannites Webring navigator somewhere in my sidebar).
So here's the rest of my list, in no particular order, with a slant towards those blogs that are off the English-language path (cuz we all probably read the same English-language blogs anyways) . Although I can't understand some of these blogs, I do find the eye candy inspiring.
