The Sunshine Award

Mystery Fanfare is the proud recipient of a Sunshine Award presented by Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine who originally received this award from The Rap Sheet. Here's the deal: The award's supposed to go to bloggers whose “contagious positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging universe.”

The rules read as follows:
1. Put the logo on the blog within your post.
2. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let the nominees know they have received the award by commenting on their blogs.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received
this award.

Since this went out on Sunday, I imagine many of the Blogs that I chose will have been chosen by others, but that's o.k., too. I'll give it a shot and try not to repeat any from The Rap Sheet or from Bill Crider's Pop Culture Magazine. Now I wasn't sure if one could go outside the mystery blog world, so I stayed there. Here are 12 good blogs in no particular order. I know I've repeated one from the original list, but I read it every day, and I wanted to include it.

1. Detectives without Borders
2. Eurocrime
3. In Reference to Murder
4. Jungle Red Writers
5. Lesa's Book Critiques  
6. Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind
7. Murderati
8. Mysteries in Paradise
9. Mystery Lovers' Kitchen 
10. Hey, There's a Dead Guy in the Living Room 
11. Big Beat from Badsville
12. Crime Beat

Thanks, you guys. Stayed with a list of 12 mystery blogs, although thought maybe should have added some fun chocolate and food blogs I follow. Next time.

Well deserved. I always read your mystery blog. It keeps me informed of what is going on in the mystery world.

Thanks very much for including "In Reference to Murder" on your listing, Janet! I'd return the favor, except I'm guessing we're supposed to come up with 12 different blogs. At any rate, yours is one of the few that I make sure to read each and every day.

Janet Rudolph said...

Thanks. Yes, 12 different blogs. ... a task...
