I know that there’s New Year and all, but I’ve never been a real fan of that. We’ll do the get together with friends, but that’s about it. I enjoy Christmas. And now I feel sad that it’s over… Today at the mall, Santa's chair was empty and I didn't like seeing that. Especially that it was snowing outside, and there was still a bit of frenzy in the air, lots of shoppers out.
I received an email today asking if I’d be interested in doing a NaBlo thing for EVERY day of 2008. I must confess that I did think about it. I still have a few days left… if I decide to join. In case you’re interested, check it out here.
As I was surfing around, I went to my “Blog Catalog” and “Fuel My Blog” accounts and looked around a bit. I don’t often go there. I don’t really know if those things really work. I came across a “Blog of the Day” award and it was a blog I read. I was a bit surprised. You see, for those types of awards I always assumed they were awarded by fellow bloggers, not because you nominated your blog and asked your friends and readers to vote for you. That, to me, is just …
The little Blogger's Choice guy is cute, I must say. Looks a bit like one of those Alessi bonhommes, but enough for me to nominate one of my blogs. That just seems sooo wrong...
On BlogCatalog they even have a group, with over 250 members where they tell you how to submit your blog, etc. Check it out.
Thinking back, I wonder if all those blogs I’ve seen with some “This blog was nominated…” were actually self-nominations? Not the same at all, now is it? And to think that I wanted one of those… yikes.
Just last week I received my very first Blog Award ever. Yes, Lizgwiz presented me with “A Major Award” (Chech it out on my side bar under "Not So Stinky" You can read her post by clicking on the award)! I was very surprised and also very happy. I didn’t tell her to nominate me and that’s the way it should be, at least I think so… What do you think?
