Thanks, I think…
I hope no one minds if I take a break today and deal with the lighter side of things. Most people who read this blog are used to seeing my daily rants about the serious problems we face here in the USA and on the rest of planet earth. Todays post ain’t about that…
Seeing how “I can has cheezburger” and the “cnn political ticker” fight it out to be top wordpress blog. The rest of us need take our recognition where we can get it. 😉
The owners over at BlueBloggin have taken it upon themselves to
inflict honor me with an chain letter award. All kidding aside, thanks nytexan and bosskitty. This really means a bunch coming from two fellow bloggers I read everyday because they always have something interesting to say!
One of the cool things about the “power of schmooze” award is it’s definition. It recognizes bloggers that take part in the community aspect of blogging. Those that answer comments posted on their blog and also comment on the blogs of others as opposed to those that just post and forget. I now have to, according to the design of this award, pick 5 other bloggers to pass this award on to. Since the kids at BlueBlogin already have one, I can’t give it to them. I’ve thought long and hard about this and the following are my choices in alphabetical order:
The blog owner is known here abouts as “m6fan.” His blog is an amazing combination of his photographs, poetry, and insights into what it all means to live in our world.
This is another exploration via photography and poetry by one known simply as “I” in her comments. Most of us refer to her as Jane though. She is an amazing artist and that she is only 14 years of age makes the high quality of her work even more amazing.
Run by my fellow curmudgeon “mudge” this is another “cranky puss” 😉 blog like mine. Mudge and I have lived long enough to know things are all screwed up, but aren’t old enough for the “home” yet. I have a feeling both he and I will be ranting and raving against the power elite for quite a few decades to come!
Me No Big Chief…
This blog is ably run by ” little indian.” This is one of those blogs that give info never seen elsewhere. The latest series of posts concerns the disputed territory of Kashmir. This blog is a must read for anyone wishing to gain insight into the wider implications of the war in Iraq and it’s surrounding countries. There are a host of other issues covered in this blog and poetry too!
Another excellently run blog, this one done by “QB’, is another daily read for me. Ya never know what all QB will be writing about on any given day, but whatever the subject you can expect a job well done at this blog.
There are a zillion other blogs I love, the 5 that I picked just seemed to fit the definition of this award best. Now comes the fun part. I get to say to the bloggers I chose “tag you’re it!” The way this works, you not only get to add the e-version of a “certificate suitable for framing” (The Power of Schmooze image) to your sidebar. You also each get to “tag” 5 other poor bloggers with this honor…
The Telepathic Crickets have assured me in no uncertain terms that the high level of recognition I have received via this award will not be allowed to go to my head…
The scientifically impossible I do right away
The spiritually miraculous takes a bit longer
