Without further delay.... My nominees for the Brillante Weblog Award!

Since I've been nominated for this twice now, by Chrysti and by JeweledRabbit, I think it is about time that I got around to nominating some others for it. Granted, it is not a real deal blog award, but rather a hoax. According to JeweledRabbit's post, you can even find the award listed at the Museum of Hoaxes. Even though nobody is winning a prize with this fake award, I still think it is a fun way to give admiration to a few fellow bloggers who's posts I enjoy reading. At the end of my "nominations" below, you'll find a list of the rules for participating. And, for those ten featured bloggers, if you don't want to participate, it is not a big deal to me personally. I simply hope that you are pleased at being featured and being (fake) nominated for this (fake) award. After all, it is an honor just to be nominated as all big stars say.
