Blog Award - Superior Scribbler

OMG, you guys in the blogosphere definitely know how to make me smile!  Much thanks to the excellent Chasing the Moon for the Superior Scribbler award!

So, I have one of those ridiculously silly confessions to make.  While I started This Is Not My Day Job in 2008, I didn't devote myself to blogging until fairly recently. But once I started to really care about my blogging, to visit lots of other sites and meet other bloggers -- I became a little jealous of everyone else's blogging awards!  I worried that my blog wasn't very helpful or interesting to other writing bloggers.  I know that was sort of silly... but it just means that receiving this award and the Over The Top blog award has really meant a lot to me!

So, my picks for the Superior Scribbler award:

Weronika for both her posts about writing and her bigos recipe (my dad used to make bigos, or Polish hunter's stew, for me and I'm glad to have a recipe to carry on the tradition!)

Stef of 52 Weeks of Wordage, which I recommend visiting when you don't know what else to write about -- there's always a brilliant point of inspiration here!

Anna Claire Vollers of A Novel Idea even though I managed to lose her blog (I have no control over my blogroll, apparently) and just rediscovered her. She's funny. And Southern.

Cerebral Girl in a Redneck World for the awesome time and for posting a great round-up of giveaways. Seriously, go check it out. She is my go-to girl for scouting great book swag on the interwebs!

I just started reading Leasie of Leasie Writes, but she has some great posts about writing - I'm looking forward to trying the 30 minute outlining method she described here. Also, she reminds me of myself as a teenager (I promise, that is not a bad thing. Mom, if you're reading this, no one wants your opinion). She also has a newer blog, so head over and leave her some love, will you?
