Trendy Blog Award!



Medeia Sharif was kind enough to bestow a Trendy Blog Award to Thoughts and Ponderings. Hmmmm. Who would have thought that the internal ramblings of a nerd could ever be trendy? :) Alas, I accept the award with the same graciousness with which it was given. Now - the rule is that I post the award and then pass it on to 10 others; never being one to follow rules, I'm passing the award on to 5 others :). My vote for 5 trendy blogs:


Cruella Collett
Alexis Hallum
Creepy Query Girl
Jennifer Hillier
Dori the Giant

Thank you, Medeia, for thinking of me in the context of trendy {blush}!

  2. Now, now, Abby. I know I'm not trendy, per se, but they don't give out "introspective, quirky and sometimes sullen" awards, so I took what I could get :).

    Hey, like I told you on your blog, I enjoy reading you.

  5. Yes, you, Jennifer! And how can you possibly suggest that you might not be trendy considering that amazing interview you've got going today???

  7. You certainly deserve it, Alexis. I loved the way you merged poetry and photography in your latest blog post. Now that's some creative cubism! :)

  8. Oh, wow - thank you so much! I think this is the first time in history I (or anything I've made) have ever been referred to as trendy. Very happy to have earned that particular experience, though! :)

  15. Medeia - "Nerds are very trendy." Hmmm? That's definately Mensa, through and through :)

    Rama - thank you! You know, as often as I feel I've lost my own inspiration, it's nice to know that maybe in some small and simple way, I've contributed to another writer's inspiration. Thanks again for the kind compliment.

    Rachna - thanks :)

  21. You're welcome, Tabitha. Like I mentioned on your blog, you write well. You have a good mix of images and emotions, your writing holds the reader's attention. I also like the way you vary the length and descriptiveness of sentences. You do it in a way that creates a non-jarring, unobtrusive and natural narrative flow.

    I like your work, both from literary and from emotive standpoints.

    Enjoy the weekend!
