It’s always nice to have your hard work recognized, and for the second year in a row, I’ve made Doug Ross’s prestigious Fabulous 50 Blog Awards.
You may ask, how does he choose his winners? Is there an online poll, a panel of judges? Pshaw! Doug says:
No debates. No voting. No nominations. Just facts. Immutable truths, chiseled in stone and then forged on Zeus’ anvil for all of human history. No prize carries more panache, more prestige, and more sex appeal than a Fab 50 Award, save something you might find in a Crackerjacks box.
Crackerjacks! Those temporary tattoos are awesome! Granted, I tied with about 12 other bloggers for best political reporting – but I made it, baby – by the skin of my teeth, I made it. Many very excellent bloggers who also deserve recognition, didn’t make the list – so I don’t take it for granted.
Dan Collins at The Conservatory also has an extensive end of the year blog list with winners running the gamut from: Sickest Story of the Year: Kermit Gosnell and company. Thanks to Pundette for that one – to - Shark Jumpers: Krugman, Reich, Coulter, Rove, Beck, Bachmann – to - Nicest Guys on the Internet: Jimmie Bise and Peter Ingemi – to – Hustlers: Peter Ingemi and Stacy McCain – to – (get this) Blogger of the Year: Nice Deb
To which my reaction can be summed up by Wayne and Garth as you see them, here:
I suggested to Dan that perhaps he had made a glaring typo in his post, but nope – he assured me it was correct – so all I can do is blush and curtsey and convey my deepest gratitude for being so honored.
Thank you Dan and Doug for taking the time to recognize other bloggers when everyone knows you guys do outstanding work yourselves.
