Passing on the good vibes

I got an unexpected compliment from Claire Beynon last weekend – she listed my blog as one of seven that inspire her. Thanks Claire!

I have never in my life replied to a chain mail or similar things, so I feel a little naughty doing this. The award should be passed on to others, who in turn pass it on.. etc. The rules are:

1. Please put the logo (below) of the award on your blog.
2. Link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate 7 or more blog recipients.
4. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.

So here’s my pick – there is no particular order of preference (and if you don’t want to play, I understand):
Expression Patterns – Thanks for the twisted angle you add to everything.
Isis the Scientist – you rock, I just don’t get the shoe thing.
Adventures in Ethics and Science – Thanks for touching on so many important issues in a sane way.

A Developing Passion – you’re a superwoman yourself!
Petrona – I will make more time for reading.
Stripped Science – say it with cartoons!
The Boston Blog – Girls, write more!
Reciprocal Space – some of the best titles…

P.S. Did anyone notice? Mostly NN bloggers.. someone might say we’re cliquey or something.

About steffi suhr

Once upon a time, I was an enthusiastic and hopeful biological oceanographer who did a bunch of work in the Antarctic. I was alternately wearing labcoats or extreme weather clothing and hard hats, but have long since swapped survival suits for dress suits and do science management, currently as the BioMedBridges project manager at the European Bioinformatics Institute. I still like to use my brain. I'm a German serial expat, currently - again - living in the UK.

    Thanks so much for the tag, Steffi, and the compliment! I did already get tagged for this one by someone else, so wrote a post the other day in response – here it is if that will do for a response to you! . I am not too keen on tagging other bloggers personally so rather than tag people I just invited anyone to have a go at the end of my post.
    I think your blog is pretty inspiring, by the way – I very much enjoy reading it. You aren’t shy to write about difficulties or challenges, and I have yet to read you moaning about them. That’s my definition of inspiring – or one definition, certainly.

    Thanks Maxine! Your response to the earlier tag is exactly why I had to tag you – my one-liners above pale in comparison 🙂

  3. Maxine Clarke says:

    Not at all, Steffi. I’ve been blogging for quite a while (in blogging timescales) – I could not have hoped to have written posts like yours so soon after beginning a blog.

    Steffi – thank you for both the tag and the heads-up about it. Superwoman, schmuperwoman – it’s all about wanting more than you can have. It would be good to be a little less ambitious and a little more satisfied.

    I think we’d be set if we just learn to be satisfied with having never-ending ambitions… (it is tiring of course!)

  6. Eva Amsen says:

    Thanks for this (I forgot). I’m a dead end in 95% of things that require tagging multiple people, so I probably won’t do this (also because most of my blog inspirations comes from non-blogs)

  7. steffi suhr says:

    No worries Eva! Yes, my ideas are a probably mostly from ‘non-blogs’ too, but you guys inspire me to just write and get it out there!
