In all earnesty

... was how I was going to approach the Excellent Blogger award that Steph had passed on to me a few days ago... then I thought, C'mon, Gesa, Gie's a break - stop playing to national stereotypes here.
So, rather than getting a long rant about my thoughts of grading, and awarding grades - btw, an E in the UK system is of course the fail mark ;), I am chuffed (if slightly blushed) and am passing it on to a number of other blogs I enjoy. I may struggle though to make it up to ten - but I do like the generous idea of it... which means that soon every blog must get an E, and thus the whole grading idea been undermined.... Sorry... looks as if I can't help my earnesty here...

Well, here's my list:

Lindsay at Non-Linear Arts, whose curiosity towards projects and other people's work has provided much inspiration

Mithi's Creative Journey with loads of art school projects which make me imagine a different life

Jenny's South Belfast Diary whose take on NI politics and events is a good continuation of some of the coffees we used to share.

KJ's One Hundred Objects where I've been lurking frequently and hope to see some of her stunning abstracts live at some point

Tina's Cycling Artist. Her evocative landscapes - all colour and a few lines opened up a new perspective on landscape when I first lurked around WetCanvas.

Hahaha... and then she realised that it's rating not grading... LOL... that's where earnesty gets you to...

And of course: as for instructions, once nominated - if you feel like it - nominate 10 others and pass it on... as per usual...

Gesa, Congrats on your well deserved award and thanks for nominating me! It's very sweet of you. Now I have to nominate a few of my own?

Gesa said...

Lindsay - you are very welcome to it!!! Of course, I forgot the instructions, didn't I - yes: pass on as you see fit. I think the number 10 was mentioned.

Gesa, you deserved the award. And now I have 5 new blogs in my favorites list. I love the way this award gives me insights into my favorite blogger's favorites. Steph x

Hi Gesa, thanks for nominating South Belfast Diary! I always enjoy your blog and I hope you pick up some others readers from my link too. I'll enjoy selecting my favourite ten.

Gesa said...

Yes - I agree with you Steph: discovering new blogs through some of the blogs you like is a good thing. You're very welcome, Jenny: I'll have a look at your selection later...

Thank you Gesa! And well done for receiving and "E" ... I'd personally class it as "A++" ;)
