Arte y Pico

For whatever reason, Becca has seen fit to award me with the Arte y Pico Award. It goes something like this:

1) Pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here: Arte y Pico.

A number of blogs I read have been given this award already. I'm going to pick five, and my apologies to anyone who feels slighted in the least. It does feel sucky getting passed over, even for something like this.

First, I want to give this award to MC, who inspired me to be more creative in my first year of blogging.

Second, to Allen L., whose new series of Listening Post entries have been some of the most fun reading I've had online lately.

Third, to Jaquandor, who has one of the most interesting blogs I read (and, since he's been around longer than anyone, the most packed with great articles).

Fourth, to Johnny Yen, not least of which for his fascinating, insightful history posts.

And fifth, John and Jana at Shuffleboil, a great blog that features one of my favorite daily treats, My Year Writing This Book About My Year Writing This Book.

I don't expect everyone to jump on it; I'm just passing it on.
