A “flight” of darts – thanks to Julianne!

Thanks to Julianne Douglas at Writing the Renaissance, I’ve been included the latest “tagging meme” or chain recommendation game.  This is the “Premio Dardos”, which seems to have originated in the Spanish-language blogosphere nearly a year ago.  I rushed off to do some digging to find out more.

However, I’m really flattered to be tagged by Julianne since the award is said to acknowledge “the values that every Blogger displays in their effort to transmit cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values with each message they write.”  Moreover,  it is “a way to show appreciation and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web.”  That all sounds great!

So because these things work in a wonderfully weird ways, here are my nominees – I can only stretch to 5 tonight.  Here goes:

This Itch of Writing by Emma Darwin: always interesting and often provocative.

Cornflower: A wonderfully eclectic blog, now divided between books and all manner of things concerning “food, flowers, art, yarn and more”.

The Naked Translator by Céline Graciet, full of fascinating details about the day-to-day life of a French translator working in UK.

Vulpes Libris always a great read.

and just because it’s one of the best Weekend papers (with book reviews if you scroll down), the FT Weekend website.
