This is the first award I have been nominated for by another blogger, and of course I want to say thank you to The Green Study for nominating me.
While I realize not everyone is really big on the blog awards, I like them because they expose other bloggers out there. Through reading nominees of these awards on blogs I follow, I’ve learned about some other excellent blogs. I am excited to pass this on to my readers, while also recognizing some of the blogs I’ve been following.

Thanks to Michelle at The Green Study. I always enjoy reading her blog posts. She writes of many things with a writing style that I envy.

Tell your readers 7 things about yourself
1. I am writing from above the Arctic Circle, and I’m looking forward to seeing more sun when I go home soon.
2. When I was 13, I decided I was too cool for school and made it my lifelong dream to eventually own a candle shop in the mall. Clearly engineering school has shattered my dreams.
3. I actually enjoy cooking!
4. I like climbing. I also enjoy taking other people climbing and watching them get scared.
5. I like cheese.
6. If I must wear socks, I only wear wool socks. Even in the middle of summer.
7. In the first grade, when I got sent home sick, I cried because I wanted to stay at school and learn.
Nominate 5-10 bloggers you read regularly for this award
While I have recently started following many excellent blogs that I am looking forward to reading more of, here are a few blogs I’ve been following for awhile longer:
A well written academic blog by Dr. Platts who has a PhD in sociology. She has some great insight into many things having to do with women and society. I love her approach to explaining many issues of today.
A Life Unexamined
Written by Jo, an asexual college student. I always come away from her blog with a fresh perspective!
A blog promoting healthy relationships and increasing awareness about domestic violence.
Whit and Wisdom
Whit, and Wisdom is a blog by a woman named Whit in her mid-twenties. I love her witty posts relating to things ranging from feminism to politics to everyday life.
This is a lovely blog written by a Quaker female who works at a women’s shelter. She describes the title “Unladylike Musings” as a challenge to the idea of emphasized femininity.
