Eight 2008 NYC Blogs

I generally ignore chain letters, forwarded emails and text messsages that you are supposed to pass on to 52 people within 13 minutes or you'll have poor luck and bad sex for 7 years. However, in appreciation of receiving a "bloggy love award" from someone who felt my blog was worth reading, I thought I'd participate in passing it along.



The rules of the award:
1. The winner can put the logo on his/her blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received your award.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs for an award.
4. Put links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message on the blogs for the people you’ve nominated.

Since my blog is about "Becoming a New Yorker" (from NC to NYC, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly - and even the Boring - of being a New York transplant, in my own words and others), I decided to nominate 8 New York City blogs that I have enjoyed reading in 2008.

Below are my New York City Blog Nominees in alphabetical order.
Blog Name Removed
Chelsea Talks Smack
City Wendy
Misguided Misadventures in NYC
Miss Model Behavior
NYC Ponderings
So's Your Face
Zombie Fights Shark

Runners-Up
(these blogs are available to invited readers only but deserve a mention)
DrunkBrunch [Update: DrunkBrunch has left Blogger and is "tumbling".]
Satire City

Honorable Mention
(because anyone who challenges themselves to become a New York transplant can use this blog as a how-to guide)
Newbie NYC

Hey, thanks yo! As soon as I can figure out a way to send a fruit basket over the internet, well... then you'll have yourself some digitally obtained pears and apples.
