Blogging With a Purpose

Thanks to Bellini Valli at More Than Burnt Toast for awarding me with a Blogging With a Purpose award last week! It is, I gather, for doing pretty much what the title says: blogging with particular purpose in mind.

Now it's my job (and pleasure) to pass it on to 5 other bloggers who bring a distinct and purposeful focus to their blogs. So, in no particular order:

- a seasonally-focused Estonian food blog; incidentally, their seasons and available foods seem to run pretty concurrently with ours, making this a very good place for an Ontarian to look for seasonal ideas. And what fabulous ideas they are!

Blue Lotus - a seasonally-focused blog by a Canadian living in Japan. Not too pertinent for me, but great and educational reading!

Stuff to Read (Mostly about food) - is on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, but normally Kevin is cooking up a storm, often with food he has hunted himself. It's a Canadian tradition with which most of us city-dwellers are no longer in contact, and makes very interesting reading.

Gato Azul - Another seasonally focused Canadian food blog, this one out of Quebec and with spectacular photography. Bilingual, to boot!

Tastes Like Home - Yes I like to read blogs rooted in a place and the seasons. Alas, not my location and not my seasons, but Cynthia blogs about some great looking food that tastes like home.

Thanks for all the great blogs, guys, and pass it on!

Finally settling down to doing my emails... yours announcing this award was particularly pleasant :-) Thank you for mentioning my blog since I think the quality of yours is quite high. Now I have to redistribute? It will be difficult to limit myself to 5 -- there are great blogs out there!
