Distinguished Company

What am I doing hanging out with the distinguished authors who blog here along with me? Just lucky, I guess.

What am I talking about? Well, I just saw the nominee list for Left Coast Crime Awards which includes the following Inkspot bloggers (who make up over a quarter of the nominations).

The Lefty (most humorous mystery of 2007): Jess Lourey, Knee High by the Fourth of July

The Rocky (best mystery of 2007 set in the West): Bill Cameron, Lost Dog and Tim Maleeny, Stealing the Dragon

The Arty (best cover art of 2007): Tim Maleeny, Stealing the Dragon (again!?)

A hearty mazel tov to Jess, Bill, Tim, and Tim (again)

I still insist that "blog" should not be a verb.

Thank you! I just ordered the other books nominated off of amazon.com. I'm looking forward to some wonderful reading.

Paul, I'm often a stickler when it comes to language. For example, I don't think "impact" is a verb. (Use "affect" instead.) Clearly, though, we disagree on use of blog. Here's what the American Heritage Dictionary has:

"intr.v. blogged, blog·ging, blogs
To write entries in, add material to, or maintain a weblog."

I'll go ahead and blog away, while you post entries in your blog.
