It’s That Time Again…

I have been blogging since September 2002. I have never been nominated for a bloggie– but, one time? I almost beat Dooce for “best parenting blog” in some totally insignificant blog award. So, IN YOUR FACE, BLOGGIES. Honestly, I’m not bitter. I know the writing here has never been worthy of any “awards.” That said, every year I take the time to nominate my favorite bloggers. Normally, I don’t make those nominations public, because feelings can get hurt and oh, how I hate hurting peoples feelings. But, this year, I’ve been inspired by Aimee to post my nomination. Mostly, I’m posting these because it’s always been important to me to “share the love”, as they say, when it comes to linkage. Truth be told, I kind of hate it when bloggers are stingy with links, or only link to their “internet friends.” Since I was already working on a “blogs that I have loved this year and you should too” list, I figured, why not post these? Please, click on their blogs and read. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

    Aw, thanks, dude! I feel like such a lazy blogger, but I actually BLOGGED yesterday. Does that count toward my lifetime achievement? I think so…!
    I won a Bloggie in 2004 (or was it 2003?) for the same tagline I have now. And that same year I was 2nd “Best New Weblog” and “Weblog of the Year” categories — the latter in which I beat out Dooce. SUCK ON THAT! Of course, I didn’t WIN Best New Weblog, and Dooce went on to rule the world or whatever, but I had my moment in the sun, ok? ;)

    Thanks, Y! You DO deserve a shitload of blog-type awards for your humor, your posts about your Grandfather, your photos that totally blow my mind, and your overall awesomeness. Plus, if they ever make one for funny IMs that make me shoot my drink out my nose all over my desk, you and Jenny tie for that one, too.
    xoxoxo :-*

    Thank you so much for your suggestions. You have no idea how many great blogs I have found through you or through blogs I have found through you. Thanks for expanding my world, and thanks for your never-ending honesty. That’s what I love about you.

    Well dang, I just popped over for my Mamarosa fix and found my NAME on your LIST????!!! I’m like, embarrassingly thrilled!
    I would offer to bear your children, but A) I’m kinda long in the tooth for that, plus hello? it took me long enough to get knocked up with mine and B) you make really good ones all by yourself. So, I’ll just settle for saying thank you so much, really. You had me at Jesse’s Girl.

    OMG. I am catching up on my blog reading and just saw this! I am so honored.
    I entered my nominations already and I nominated you in Humor.
    You so deserve it.
    Thank you for sharing your support of us publicly.
    Much love,
    Isabel
