So, this blog award meme thing is going around. The Versatile Blogger Award. I have no idea how it started (Google has failed me), but it’s making the rounds in a big way. Google returned about 1.7 million hits on “versatile blogger award.”
More importantly, I received one. And I am all about getting the ribbon for participation, screw rewarding people for winning. Honey, you just to need show up. Don’t even worry about crossing the finish line.
But bragging rights aren’t all I get. Nosireebob. Awardees need to follow rules. Although I’m not sure what would happen if I didn’t follow them. Would the awards committee swoop down and strip me of the honor in a YouTube ceremony?
Rule 1: thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog. (check)
Rule 2: Share seven things about yourself
Rule 3: Pass the award along to 15 newly discovered blogs
My codicil to rule 3: I didn’t see this in the “official” rules, but it makes sense to leave a comment on the blogs you’re awarding so they know they, too, have to follow rules. And if you’re getting this award from me, you better believe I’ll be checking back to make sure you follow them!
Sigh. In spite of having this blog, I hate sharing tidbits of info about myself. So I’m putting them at the bottom, and some of them may not be true.
15 newly discovered blogs, eh? Well, I’m cheating and including some blogs I’ve followed for a while. After all the award seems to be geared toward generating hits for people and, gosh darn it, some of the blogs I follow deserve that. And, no, I didn’t include 15.
