I’m not much of a procrastinator, and as such, I’m going to deal with my second blogging “award” immediately on the Gucci-ed-heels of the last and pass this horror honor along today. (In case you missed it—yesterday I accepted and “shared” the Memetastic Award. To read the post click here.)
I wouldn’t want to keep all the glory to myself. That would be selfish, and that’s just not me, because, according to my friend Wendy over at “Herding Cats in Hammond River,” I’m a “Stylish Blogger.”
Whether this means I’m a blogger with fashion sense or a wardrobe-malfunctioned writer, whose blog happens to be in good graphic order, I don’t know.
The only thing I’m certain of is this: I gotta pass this hot potato along today while folks are already hating me and I have nothing more to lose.
Now frankly, I’m horrified to do this two days in a row, and I apologize to any and all victims of this prize-passing plot. I want to make it perfectly clear that I won’t be bothered in the least should you ignore this honor all together and move along to less coutured-concerns, like getting the kids off to school, raising your blog’s Technorati rating, addressing the issue of hunger in Haiti, or bringing peace to the Middle East.
But—as a good team player and perfect martyr to the cause of peace and good will in the blogosphere, I formally accept the Stylish Blogger Award, and in doing so, agree:
- To (sort of) write seven things about myself. (How’s that for open-ended—something any narcissist worth her blogging salt could pull off with posting pleasure.)
- To (almost) present this award to six other suckers bloggers (but the more the merrier).
- To (kind of) contact these victims people (as I see fit).
- To (by all means) create a link back to the sadist person who humiliated honored me. (In all seriousness, Wendy’s “Herding Cats in Hammond River” is not only worth reading, it’s worth subscribing to and reading daily. I wouldn’t think of missing it—truly!)
However, here’s where we get to mix it up, folks. Because I’m going to ignore adjust the rules and ask instead that you share some little-known truth about yourself in the comments below—maybe even add a link to what you consider the best or most popular post you’ve ever written. Come on now—toot your own horn here!
And instead of me passing this “award” along to six other bloggers who must then foist it off on six others, I’d like you, in the comments, to nominate a blogger who you don’t think gets the attention or traffic they observe. Who have we not heard of? Who have we not read? Who has not been freshly pressed but, by God, deserves to be?
In fact, I suggest we officially revise the “Stylish Blogger Award” rules, so that the blogger with style, the blogger with class, in fact, becomes the one who asks you to share what’s best about you and bring a friend along for the fun. Let’s create a little more community here!
Show some self-esteem, dress yourself up, take yourself anda blogging buddy out on the town: share a post of your own and/or a link to your favorite blog.
Because really, folks, a blog is only as good as its readers, and my blog rocks only to the degree that you shake things up and make a difference.
Feel free to do a similar “Stylish Blogger” post of your own, if you like. Share the glory. Wear the style.
Give your blog a little haute couture of its own—
Because blog is the new black!
