Jordana, my friend and fellow food blogger, has nominated me for a blog “award” — okay, it’s not a Pulitzer but I’m quite honored and excited just the same. Many of you know and follow Jordana at menu maniac, but for those who don’t, I hope you’ll take a look, because I think you’ll enjoy it a lot.

So, before passing on this award, one must follow the rules:
  • Accept the award, post it on your blog wtih the name of the person who gave it you, plus his/her blog link.
  • Pass the award to other blogs you’ve newly discovered and tell them you’ve chosen them for the award.

I read quite a few blogs, but here are a few I really enjoy:

Danni & Ted’s Adventures at: http://montanacoffman.blogspot.com/. My friend Danni, a ultramarathoner, runs like 100 miles a week. Nope, not kidding. Her race reports will both inspire you and make you wince. Plus, she’s the perfect combination of fiercely smart and wacky.

Alexandra of http://www.alexandracooks.com/. I just discovered her this week. Be sure to check out her former blogspot site, as well.

Mardi at http://www.eatlivetravelwrite.com/, another new find for me.

and Julie, at http://dinnerwithjulie.com/, yet another new one for me.

And, I’d like to give a shout-out to another marathoner friend who writes a secret running blog. She knows who she is, and her blog is indeed award-worthy.

Next week, watch for a list of “oldie but goodie” food blogs I’ve been reading for longer than these.

Thanks, Jordana!

WOW – thanks so much – I am flattered – I've only been blogging for about a month so this is quite the honour….
