The Excessively Diverting Blog Award – New Nominations

Excessively Diverting Blog AwardThank you Catherine Delors of Versailles and More blog for nominating Austenprose for the Excessively Diverting Blog Award presented by Jane Austen Today. We are honored and hope to continue to live up to the challenge. 

The aim of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award is to acknowledge writing excellence in the spirit of Jane Austen’s genius in amusing and delighting readers with her irony, humor, wit, and talent for keen observation. Recipients will uphold the highest standards in the art of the sparkling banter, witty repartee, and gentle reprove. This award was created by the blogging team of Jane Austen Today to acknowledge superior writing over the Internet and promote Jane Austen’s brilliance. 

Here are our 7 nominations: 

History Hoydens – This group of eleven historical romance writers have been “dishing the dirt on research” and entertaining us for years. Beautiful and thoroughly researched posts that never fail to surprise and amaze. 

Costume Drama Reviews – Judy offers great insights on all the costume drama’s that we can not get enough of. 

Elegant Extracts Blog – Teresa A. F. has admittedly been pretending to be Jane Austen since 1999. Author and humorist, this blog never fails to make us laugh at her creative musing and shenanigans. 

A Comfy Chair and a Good Book – Jeanette chats about, books, and more books with such energy that it is addictive. 

The Bluestocking Guide – Book reviews by “a partial, prejudiced and ignorant reader.”  Get all the latest in book reviews, book news, critical essays, and most importantly- book giveaways. Smart and sassy. 

Sophisticated Dorkiness – Don’t let the title fool you. Kim is one smart lady who loves books, journalism, geeky technology stuff, and sharing. Her 2009 Blog Improvement Project is brilliant. 

Jane Austen Sequels Blog – Talented author Jane Odiwe dazzles us with her musing on Jane Austen and her life, her own Austen sequels, and her stunning original Austen inspired art. So much fun under one blog! Who could wish for more? 

Congratulations recipients. Please claim your award by copying the HTML code of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award badge, posting it on your blog, listing the name of the person who nominated you, and linking to their blog. Then nominate seven (7) other blogs that you feel meet or exceed the standards set forth. Nominees may place the Excessively Diverting badge in their side bar and enjoy the appreciation of their fellow blogger for recognition of their talent.  

Cheers, Laurel Ann

  1. I’m all overcome – thank you so much! I am very honoured and can’t wait to put my award on my blog.
    I’ve just spent a horrid morning cleaning my house – it just gets to that point when I can’t pretend to ignore the mess any longer, so you have made my day. I’ll shut up now – in danger of doing a Winslet – sorry, Kate, I love you for it!


  2. Thank you very much! I’m very honoured and completely tongue-tied – can’t think what to say at all.

    I noticed that I suddenly had quite a lot of visitors via your site and wondered why. Much appreciated.:)


  3. Is there a ceremony. Do I get to wear a gown? Oooo! Do you think Harry Winston will lend me a necklace? Can I bring Hugh Jackman as my date? :-)

    It is an honor to be nominated. Thank you so much! Now all I have to do is figure out how to add the badge to my sidebar.
