Versatile Blogger Award, Take Two

By Vladimir Brezina and Johna Till Johnson

We are greatly honored to receive the Versatile Blogger Award again, this time from two fellow bloggers, Rola Yousef of A Thing of Beauty and Marge Springett of MJ Springett, Nature Photographer. Thank you both so much!

Amusingly enough, before Marge Springett nominated us, we were going to nominate her. But she got her blow in first…

The first time we received the Versatile Blogger Award, back in January, we wrote quite an elaborate post satisfying the various requirements of the award. So here we’ll go straight on to what we take to be the main purpose of the award: to draw the attention of a wider audience to those blogs that have drawn our attention. We pass the Versatile Blogger Award on to this fresh crop of blogs that we’ve come to admire and look forward to reading recently:

Most of these are photography blogs, delivering beautiful and creative photos to us each and every day!

The last two blogs are from Johna’s list of “health and fitness” blogs that she follows on a semi-regular basis.

Peter Attia is an MD and serious geek who has carefully documented his physiological and performance changes (he’s a distance swimmer) on a low-carb diet. (Check out the story of how he used calculus to compute the percentage of body-fat he’d have to decrease to in order to shrink his waist by a couple of inches… you can see the appeal!)

Skwigg is a cheerful, intrepid omnivore who chronicles her experiences with various fitness regimes, and isn’t above showing workout photos of herself with her cat. (Note: Skwigg actually does get some sponsorship for her site, so she’s a semi-pro blogger. But still quite versatile!)

Please let us know if you’d like to see more on health-and-fitness topics: we’re happy to oblige.

Enjoy the links, and Happy Spring!
