Helen Ginger http://straightfromhel.blogspot.com/Well, gracious, I’m blushing so much you’d think I was Rudolph the red-cheeked reindeer. Thank you Marvin!
Her blog, “Straight From Hel,” is one I go to daily. Helen is a multi-published author, marketing maven, freelance writer and public speaker. She posts informative blogs that have value to anyone wanting to learn about how to become a successful published author.
In his post, Marvin gives the characteristics that he feels makes a good blog brilliant. Those include:
Timely and regular posts
Lots of SEX AND VIOLENCE
Keep it relevant
He was kidding about the Sex and Violence, even though this was the one that most fit Straight From Hel..
Now, it’s my turn to pass the Brilliant Weblog Award to someone deserving. I hereby give it to Chez Robert Giron. Robert Giron is a writer and poet who teaches literature and creative writing. He shares his expertise on his blog and also gets the word out about awards and events. He doesn’t blog every day, but when he does, it’s worth reading. And occasionally, he throws in his thoughts on things outside of writing that interest him or riles him up.
So I hereby give this award to Chez Robert Giron and encourage him to copy the Brilliant Weblog Award jpg and add it to his blog, then pass it on to someone whom he feels is deserving of the honor.
