Started by the blogging team at Jane Austen Today the "aim of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award is to acknowledge writing excellence in the spirit of Jane Austen’s genius in amusing and delighting readers with her irony, humor, wit, and talent for keen observation. Recipients will uphold the highest standards in the art of the sparkling banter, witty repartee, and gentle reprove."
I'm most flattered, thank you, Doctor! Now, I have to nominate seven other blogs, but unfortunately most of them I would nominate has been nominated already, so here follows:
A Thousand Clapping Hands - beautiful postings, and even more beautiful pictures! It's a joy to visit her blog.
Tea at Trianon - Always informative and very interesting posts about Marie-Antoinette, traditions and culture!
Enchanted by Josephine - Wonderful blog about history, historical fiction and Josephine & Napoleon, of course!
Recipients, please claim your award by copying the HTML code of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award badge, posting it on your blog, listing the name of the person who nominated you, and linking to their blog. Then nominate seven other blogs that you feel meet or exceed the standards set forth. Nominees may place the Excessively Diverting badge in their side bar and enjoy the appreciation of their fellow blogger for recognition of their talent.
