Special Sunday Post

Blog With Substance

I usually don't post on the weekends, but here it is: Special Sunday Edition!

I recently received an award for my blog.  Actually, it's my first one.  It was given to me by Booya Bobby.
It is the "Blog With Substance" award.

I know it's kind of feminine, but what do you expect when a majority of bloggers out there are women?

My job now is to sum up my blogging experience, philosophy, and motivation into 5 words.

#1 Relieving
-I discovered that blogging is a perfect way to dump all of those excess thoughts running around my head.

#2 Enlightening
-Now I know how little I really knew about the internet...and now I'm learning.

#3 Enjoyable
-I guess this falls under the philosophy category.  My unofficial slogan is "Think, laugh, and maybe even learn something."  Hopefully, one of those activities is enjoyable to readers.

#4 Practice
-I'd like to be published one day.  Blogging is a means by which to practice style and theme.  It's also my own personal lesson to myself in discipline.  I post Monday through Friday, rain or shine (metaphorically speaking).  I've missed very few and I'm happy about that.

#5 Community
-The blogging community is exactly that.  Among all of the B-Level blogging going on out there, I've run across some real A-List bloggers, people who really read and comment.  They have great content, too.  It's a fulfilling community.

Now, I'm tasked with passing on the award to 10 others.  So, here they are:

Ups Downs All Arounds
From the Stupidest Corner of My Mind
It Is a Big Deal, It Is to Me!
Little Lost Soul
Red Pen, Inc.
This Ain't PMS
Bianca and the B-Sides
Diary of a Doll

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

First of all, you suck because u didn't pick me....bahahaha...Just a big FAT kidding because I too hate to post about awards...they get old fast! They are nice but whatev! I don't normally post on a weekend unless it's scheduled but my kids aren't feeling good and it's been a rather boring weekend! I think M-F is good! Stick with that:) have a nice day

To be honest Vic, I'm pretty sure I was considering your blog, but for some reason I thought you already had this award. I can't remember. (I wrote this like 3 days ago.)

But I like yours, too! :)

Thanks for the shout out. I will try to live up to the spirit of the award. Speaking of which: what exactly is the spirit of the award?

congrats on receiving the award!
Blogging is good way to put things in order in the otherwise jumbled up realm of mind...all the best!
