When Catherine from Versailles and More was tagged with her Blog Award of Excellence last week, she chose ten blogs/bloggers to next receive the award -- and one of those is yours truly and Van Gogh's Chair. Merci, Madame Delors! I am taking a virtual bow, or should I say an elegant curtsey worthy of panniers.
Now I must choose ten blogs to crown with their own excellence awards. Took some thinking, and here are my choices. I know a couple of them duplicate Catherine's list, but proclamations of excellence are worth repeating. In no particular order...
Writing the Renaissance: I learn new things at Julianne's French-Renaissance themed blog and I like reading about her writing adventures.
Museworthy: The very museworthy Claudia is a professional art model in New York City. She blogs about her experiences and about the great muses of art history.
The Earthly Paradise: Margaret blogs about William Morris, the Arts and Crafts Movement, her travels in places like Paris and Colombia, and other things that strike her fancy.
Historical Tapestry: The gals at Historical Tapestry blog about historical fiction, old and new.
Word After Word: I love writing professor Heather Sellers' books "Page After Page" and "Chapter After Chapter" -- I enjoy her blog too.
History Buff: Keep up with current archaeological events with historical novelist Michelle Moran.
Notes on the Writing Life: Blog of novelist Sandra Gulland.
Reading the Past: Keep up with what's happening in HF here!
Red Wheelbarrow Bookstore: The Red Wheelbarrow is a sweet little bookstore tucked in the Marais. The owners blog with book recommendations and other news. Makes me feel connected to Paris!
Looting the Past: Prof. David Gill has been on the front ranks of the fight against looted antiquities for years. His blog reports on the latest developments. A Very Important Read!
