Love Struck

I am about as giddy as a love struck troubadour to receive A Great Buddy Award from Ms. Lucy over at Enchanted by Josephine, Cinderalla at World of Royalty and Catherine Delors over at Versailles and more. These three blogs really set the bar high.

I know everyone has probably heard the psycho mumble jumble surrounding blogging – “internet relationships aren’t real” and “they interfere with real relationships.” bla bla bla. ok so maybe I won’t ask any of the following people for cash, love advice or a spare kidney, but I can learn from these people and share my passion for history…something I can’t always do with the very people who would give me a kidney.

The following are a mixture of BCs (Blogging crushes) – blogs I recently fell in love with and BBFs (Blogging Best Friends) – blogs I read regularly.

BiblioOdyssey – Paul
Marie Anoinette Gossip Guide - Lauren
Duchess of Devonshire Gossip Guide -Heather Carroll
Scandalous Women –Elizabeth Keri Mahon
My Napoleon Obsession - Carmi Cimicata
Tea at Trianon – Elena Maria Vidal
Prima la Musica – Mozart’s Offical Weblog
The Virtual Dime Museum - Lidian
Wonders and Marvels – Holly Tucker
Writing the Renaissance – Julianne Douglas

Here’s what award winners are supposed to do:
1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

I have a great book giveaway this month too. Encylopedia of the End by Deborah Noyes. So make sure you are a newsletter subscriber to be automatically entered to win. A Review of Noyes' fascinating book is coming soon...

Taa. Not to be overly antisocial sort of thing but I've maintained a policy since I started not to enter into blog memes and the polysuch. Life short &c. :- )
