he was also excited because suzy- a talented designer, whose blog he very much admires- chose m21 for the award, and just like an actor accepting an academy award, while it may be a cliché, it really is an honor to be acknowledged by your peers. especially when maison21 looks at the list of the 7 blogs suzy bestowed the honor on:
1. The Peak of Chic
2. Habitually Chic
3. Maison 21
4. All The Best
5. Mrs Blandings
6. Absolutely Beautiful Things
maison21 looks at that list and thinks "which one of these things is not like the others?", because when he started his blog just this past november, those established blogs (along with suzy's) were all blogs that he looked to and admired, and hoped to be as good as one day. so really, to be included with them by suzy, truly is an honor...
so now, according to the "brillante weblog award" rules, we now have to pick 7 more blogs to give the award to, link to them, and leave a comment letting them know they are now an award-winning blogger. several of my picks would have been from suzy's list as well as they've become blogging friends over the last nine months, but luckily we've made lots of blogging friend, so we can easily name 7 more without repeating from suzy's list. so from the list of blogs of which we read every single post in our google reader, we choose:
- all things bright and beautiful
- cote de texas
- material girls
- things that inspire
- topsy turvy
and congrats to the latest crop of "brillante weblog premio 2008" award winners (we still don't know what the heck that means, but who cares? we're now award winnning bloggers!).
