My turn... hmmm...
Creekside, for sure. Alison was one of the first kick-ass bloggers I ever read (and all the rest of them at The Beav, of course - but they already have lots of awards).
JimBobby, who is just so dang funny and smart and doesn't post nearly often enough (but kicks ass when he does).
Dead Things On Sticks, run by the ass-kicking Denis McGrath - television writer, industry maven and latter day Marshall McLuhan.
Unrepentant Old Hippie TOTALLY kicks ass.
And... can I? I will anyway... Garth Turner, who was indirectly responsible for changing me from a film and television blogger into a political blogger. I still wouldn't want to see him as Finance Minister, but as a blogger and an MP, he kicks Conservative ass like only a convert can.
Now for the rules:
* Choose 5 bloggers that you feel are "Kick Ass Bloggers"
* Let 'em know in your post or via email, twitter or blog comments that they've received an award
* Share the love and link back to both the person who awarded you and back to www.mammadawg.com
* Hop on back to the Kick Ass Blogger Club HQ to sign Mr. Linky then pass it on!
