the superior graphics, catchy red border, and unsolicited nature of the Superior Scribbler Award has subverted my anarcho-syndicalist tendencies and won my heart to this improbable enterprise. This is a free cascading tag chain of affirmation cooked up by The Scholastic Scribe. Melissa B (profile picture Left) teaches high school journalism, (Mel B? Shome mishtake?).
Melissa’s blog emanates from the legendary ghetto of Haight-Ashbury, so getting this gong feels, in itself, like a thanksgiving dinner that couldn’t be beat at Alice’s restaurant, even without a real VW Microbus, let alone Implements of Dee-struction. The catchy logo comes complete with a quotation from Herbert Gould, elder statesman of the Beat Generation.
Bishop Alan’s Blog:
In spite of this tagging exercise’s hippy-dippy SF roots, there are rules:
- 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.
All that remains, then, is to nominate “five most deserving Bloggy Friends,” or the tag chain fails... So, I suggest, in no particular order, because that would involve envelopes, the following five off my feed list (their latest is always posted in the right hand column)...
So, I nominate, tag, and harass the following, most of whom you will find listed in the blogroll(s) in the sidebar on the right as well:
- Jonathan Allen, whose blog Thicket and thorp has interesting posts on a variety of topics that I find interesting, such as language, culture, theology and the like.
- And perhaps, with my anarcho-syndicalist tendencies, I will be excused for nominating a blogging syndicate that produces The land of unlikeness, a thoughtful blog that produces much interesting stuff on the boundaries of theology, philosophy and literature
- Fr Stephen's Glory to God for all things deals with similar subject matter, but with a somewhat different emphasis and selection, and always says something worth reading
- John's Notes from a commonplace book -- travel, literature, history, theology, a lot of it in places that my wife's British Israelite great grand uncle would have called "the prophetic earth"
- Andii Bowsher's Nouslife -- more of the same stuff, which happens to be the stuff I like: theology, culture, society, language and all the rest
