Robyn Opie, from Writing Children’s Books With Robyn Opie has very kindly presented this blog with an award – the Brillante Premio Blog Award. This is one of those awards that has a flow on effect. It’s given to me with the understanding that I’ll then pass the award on to other blogs. Kind of a chain thing – but with the nice effect that blogs are linked to each other, and that the recipient gets the chance to spread the love about blogs that they appreciate.
So, in the spirit of the ‘award’ I am going to share a list of some of my fellow children’s writers blogs which I feel are worth checking out. So, here goes:
Write and Read With Dale is the blog of Dale Harcombe, children’s author and poet. She shares book reviews and insights into life as an author.
Denouement is the blog of children’s author Sheryl Gwyther. In it she writes about her recent May Gibbs residency, her life as a writer and life in general. Sheryl’s blogging style is a real pleasure to read.
VersaTility – Rhyme and Rhythm is the blog of Jackie Hosking, children’s poet and editor of the wonderful Pass It On newsletter. Jackie’s poems always bring a smile.
Last, but not least, Elizabeth Bezant’s Writing Tips Blog is not aimed solely at writing for children, but is a great blog to go when you’re looking for a writing prompt. And dig around Elizabeth’s site while you’re there because she always has lots of useful advice and experience to share.
So, there you have it, just a few of my favourite blogs. Hopefully you’ll visit some of them today – a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Rules for recipients of the Brillante Weblog Premio are as follows:
1. The award may be displayed on a winner’s blog.
2. Add a link to the person you received the award from.
3. Nominate up to seven other blogs.
4. Add their links to your blog.
5. Add a message to each person that you have passed the award on in the comments section of their blog.
Yes, I know this is a chain thing – and if I’ve nominated you and you don’t want to participate, that’s fine. But it is a nice way of sharing some of your favourite blogs and of letting your favourite bloggers know that you like what they’re doing.
Have a nice Sunday.
