I'm a winner of the "You Scare Me" Award!



Petunia Scareum created the "You Scare Me" Horror Blog Award for "Horror Bloggers who deserve their day in the sun" and I'm one of the first recipients! Thank you so much for the award, Petunia! And thanks for the kind words. Those are probably the nicest things anyone has ever said about my blog. So thanks again. Everyone needs to check out Petunia's awesome blog, Deadly Serious. Here are the award's rules:

1. You must thank the blogger who sent it to you.
2. You must choose two Horror Bloggers that you feel are outstanding and deserve to be recognized for their work and dedication to the Horror genre.
3. You must describe why you think each recipient deserves this award.

It was very tough for me to just choose two blogs -it was hard enough choosing 15 for the Versatile Blogger Award - so I'll pick two favourites that I didn't choose that time.

I would like to give the first award to Christine at Fascination With Fear.

Why I think she deserves this award:

Since the title of the award is "You Scare Me" it would be appropriate to honor one of the creepiest blogs around. The music playlist on Christine's blog features eerie horror flick theme songs (the Suspiria and Candyman themes give me the chills) which are perfect to listen to while looking at the gory photos in her Sunday Bloody Sunday feature.

Speaking of Sunday Bloody Sunday, it is probably my favourite feature on any blog. I wish I had thought of it and never miss an installment - and neither should any other gore-hounds. I also adore all Christine's other features - especially Mindless Movie Monday.

It's obvious that Christine works very hard on her blog. Her posts are always well-written and knowledgeable.

I could go on and on about how incredible Fascination With Fear is, but I'll stop myself here and just say this: Fascination With Fear is a damn fine blog!


And I'll give the second award to Sarah, The Spooky Vegan.

Why I think she deserves this award:

Sarah was the first person to tell me that she liked my blog. I had Little Miss Zombie for almost a year without anyone commenting on it. So her kind words were very encouraging. Not that I would've quit, since I write because I enjoy it, not for the accolades. :) Anyway, I started reading Sarah's reviews on her website, Fatally Yours, where I was impressed by her great writing skills and horror knowledge.

Just a few months ago, she started a more personal blog, The Spooky Vegan. In addition to the regular horror speak, Sarah also posts about her obsession with Halloween, vegan recipes and products that look delicious and anything else she can come up with. I love meat, but even I would like to try one of Sarah's vegan recipes - it would probably be much healthier than what I usually eat! For getting me psyched about Halloween, penning some well-written horror reviews and making a meat-eater's mouth water for vegan treats, Sarah, aka The Spooky Vegan, deserves this award.
