One Lovely Blog or One Lazy Blog?

Well, two of you (LivingSimplyFree and HowIGotThisFar) have been so kind as to nominate me for the One Lovely Blog Award.

While I'm totally honored to be nominated, I wouldn't be honest if I didn't admit that I'm a tad bit cynical about these "blog awards." They tend to come with all sorts of rules about what you're supposed to do once you've been given the award, and if you've learned anything about me by now it's that I totally suck at rules!

Anyhow, I'm supposed to tell you seven things that you don't already know about me.... OK... er... um.... let's see... I'm a total pyromaniac... I could just kiss Supreme Court Justice Roberts right now... I think steamed okra looks like ectoplasm...

Oh phuckit. I'm sorry to say, I'm just way too lazy for this sort of thing.

I'm also supposed to nominate 15 other bloggers. To tell you the truth, this part sort of gives me a knot in my stomach. I just know I'll end up hurting somebody's feelings, and I really don't want to. I mean I would love for all of you who blog to be able to get some new readers from this, and for us all to grow our collective community, but I just don't want to be in the position of choosing one over the other.

So I've come up with an even better plan...

OK... here it is. If you have a blog, please post a comment telling us all about it, and include a link to one of your favorite posts. I'd love to know why you blog and why the post you're choosing to link to is one of your favorites.

I can't wait to read all of your favorite posts!


  1. Hey, congrats! I approve of laziness. Blog awards that require you to pass them on seem kind of like chain letters to me. Hmm...favorite post. That changes based on the day. I do like the snarky, ill-tempered ones, such as: Unsociability, a Low Impact Lifestyle. They don't tend to be my most popular, though. :-) For some reason, my 'about' page is consistently on the list of my most popular posts. I don't get it.

    1. Hi Jennifer!

      That is a thoroughly fabulous post, and I must say that I think you're completely and totally right. Don't EVEN get me started on weddings... I HATE them - especially the big fancy ones. The whole concept of the ridiculously expensive dresses and catering, the whole fantasy of being a fairy princess for a day, etc, etc... it always seems like the epitome of form over substance to me, especially after you watch so many of them go through nasty divorces about 5-10 years later!

      Power to the misanthropes, I say!

  2. I love how you changed the rules! What a great idea, I hope you get more replies as I'd love to see bloggers favorite posts.

    1. Me too! And BTW - you didn't post a link to your favorite post!!!


I welcome your thoughts so please leave me a comment and I promise I will respond.

On older posts I've had to enable comment moderation to prevent spammers, so don't worry if your comment doesn't show up right away - unless you're just commenting for the sake of embedding a link, in which case I really wish you wouldn't waste your time or mine because I'll just delete it.

Thanks, and have a fabulous day!
