Diverting the internal traffic between the Writer as Angel of Light and the Writer as Hustler is the scribbling child in a grown-up body, wondering if anyone is listening.

~Herbert Gold, Elder Statesman of The Beat Generation


Selma, over at the very excellent Caveat blog, has kindly nominated Red Star Café for a bloggy Scribbler award. (/blush). I, in turn, must nominate five deserving Bloggy Friends for the Scribbler Award.

The rules for this are simple:

  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author and the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to this Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we’ll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Here, in alphabetical order, are my recommendations from the Café’s Cabinet of Curiosities:

Over at Animal Inventory, Lisa Brown shares her extensive knowledge about animals in popular culture: film, television, advertising, literature and the arts. Lisa’s writing is informed, insightful, engaging and enlightening, and her Animal Inventory TV site is also worth a visit.

Visit Museworthy for a personal and visually lush journal, allowing us a glimpse at the fascinating life of an artists’ model in New York City.

Steampunk Librarian is a must-visit blog for aficionados of Verne and Tesla, and neo-Victorians who savour beautifully crafted Luddite technology.

Linda Gordon, at Throughstones, combines landscape and art in her intriguing and thoughtful environmental works in idyllic Devon. A serene and inspiring blog destination.

YesBiscuit! is one of my favourite doggie blogs. A thoughtful blogger who, like Caveat, cuts through the carp, YesBiscuit! writes about pit bulls, toxic pet food, breeders and sellers, and our ambivalent relationship with our companions in creation. This liberal scribbler also blogs on Everybody Secede Now!.


One response to “Scribblers

  1. Thank you for your kind mention. Crikey! I never thought of myself as serene… Must tell the family.
    I very much enjoy following your blog too (except when reading about animal cruelty) which I mainly follow on Bloglines feeds, though sometimes other ways. It has given me many interesting and enriching glimpses into other worlds. So thanks – and good wishes for more scribbling. Linda
