It might be one of the nerdiest things I've been excited about in a long time, but, I am a nerd. The mistress of Stay At Home Motherdom issued the award, and I'm very excited about it! Her blog is one I look forward to as a source of hope, wisdom, and inspiration. I found her in my early days of blogging when I'd surf Technorati for other addiction and recovery-related blogs, and hers was one of the first that I started reading on a regular basis. There were a few folks who I found that made me feel like I'd joined a real community, almost as if I'd found an online meeting with a conversation I could contribute to whenever I wanted.
In the tradition of great blog awards, I now get to pass them on to 5 others that I enjoy. She's already tagged my cyber soulmate MPJ, and I guess I have to leave that adulterous Scout for MPJ to tag...so my 5 Rockin' Girl Bloggers are:
1. Real life BFF and tragic poetess extraordinaire, the one and only Long Vowels, who is the first of my real-time friends to catch blog-fever with me. She rules the universe, and if you could see her, you'd know that she's hot. She's a fantastically strange poet, and she shares my affinity for hopeless romance. I love her dearly and passionately, TJW+LV=BFF4EVA! Peace NYCLIUBrooklynNEWJerzJOO!
2. EgyptReality was another of my early favorite blogs, and one I've neglected to visit lately. She's a passionate, young recovering addict from Egypt, and her blog is a tulmultuous blend of culture, recovery, women's stuff, and all kinds of yummy blog goodness. Check her out.
3 and 4. Married To An Addict and Married To My Ex are my blog-sisters. Our lives overlap in these strange and tragic and predictable ways. Ladies, one day, we should meet for coffee. I bet we could talk for hours and hours and hours.
5. From sex to news to scandal, the Dirty Bitch Society is a fun blog for dirty bitches to visit. Take a moment to check it out. The dirty bitch is on my daily reading list.
