I really don’t want to do this, but some prodding from a man with whom I’ve been intimate and my own need to avoid all of Ralph Nader’s electoral pitfalls, compels me.
A few weeks ago, my little old blog was nominated for Funniest Blog in the 2007 Weblog Awards. I was touched, flattered and honored and until I was nominated, had never even heard of this competition.
But somehow, through the muck and mire of my mind, through my tears and frustration as a peri-menopausal woman battling shriveling ovaries and through months of abject unemployment and countless temper tantrums, I find my blog has made it to the finals.
You can see the voting process right here.
My friends at the Nose On Your Face, a very funny blog, has also been nominated. With them, I am definitely in good company.
I’d also like to show my support (and so should you!!) for Nicole at Pinch My Salt, an absolutely lovely food blog. Beautifully done! Click here to vote for Pinch My Salt.
To be honest, I was very disappointed in learning that results from this competition are politically based. The process to determine actual finalists is far more meticulously done than the actual voting itself. A special committee does that. Voting however, is based on how much campaigning you do. I won’t do that.
My blog either wins on it’s own merits….or it doesn’t.
In the vast configuration of things my friends, popularity is nice—-I would know—-I was a cheerleader. But the strength of this blog especially IS NOT fueled by votes, a title or a certificate. It is a combination of my warped mind, how pissed off I am about a particular issue and of course, you—-the reader. That you read this blog is enough. It is JUST seven months old as of Halloween. Not that many people have heard of me.
Even so, I am lucky and I am grateful to have the readership I have.
Without you, I am doo doo.
