Tempus Fugit Award

Although this is not particularly an 18th Century blog, I've received:
"The TEMPUS FUGIT Award is given to writers & living historians whose journals represent the best aspects of the 18th Century. These writers aim to inform and entertain the public with tales from events, historic research & experiments and highlights from 18th Century arts and culture. It is the hope of TEMPUS FUGIT that this award will forge a web of friendship and knowledge that will aid in creating a tight community of reenactors and living historians on the internet and beyond. Winners of the TEMPUS FUGIT Award should pass this award along to six other 18th Century blogs that meet the above criteria, and include this text with the Award, as well as a link back to the TEMPUS FUGIT blog."
"Ninon showcases some of the best music and art from various eras of the past, always worth a look."
This award is from Tempus Fugit, The Doctor's fabulous blog about his doings and medical treatments in the 18th century. What can I say, I'm honoured. Thank you, Doctor!
There are only three blogs I'm aware of right now that, in my opinion, truly meet the above criteria, and those are:
