Weekend Winners

Hi All!

Yesterday I learned that a blogger I follow religiously has decided to stop blogging. It is the right decision for him, as he has more best selling novels to write! Congratulations David, and many good wishes for your new adventures. One of the most fantastic parts of David's blog (for me anyway) was his Post of the Day award. He surfed the net finding wonderful blogs across disciplines and interests,cherry picking them for our reading pleasure. I counted on it! I don't have the heroism to be able to do that every day, but I can do it once a week.. and so I've decided to! On Fridays I will announce my choices for Weekend Reading. There will be a "Best Read" as well as honorable mentions. The winners can (if they choose) post this graphic (Courtesy of Penniwigs) on their sidebar. I hope you get a chance to visit the blogs I choose, and perhaps leave them a comment for support. Nominations are welcome. So, without further ado:

Weekend Winners!

This weeks winner is :Pear Preserves! Not as much a read as a recipe, but if you haven't checked out Willow's blog yet... you should! Very popular for a reason. This post made me want to embrace fall. I needed that.

And honorable mention goes to: Fetch The Naughty Chair, The Color of Hope, and Java Jive.
Enjoy!

  8. David's picks certainly weren't always to my taste but you had to admire his dedication.

    Good to see another weekly blog pick scheme starting out. I've been doing mine for nearly two months and they're really good fun.

  10. Suzanne,that's a great idea.And the weekend is a good time for us all to visit your choices and read them.

    I too was an avid follower of David's- I'm grieving for the loss, but your decision has certainly brightened up my day.

    Gotta go...blogs to visit..scrolling to top of page to get links.
