And I thought I was above blog awards. Well …not if it’s a 5-pack!
Blogging has been revealing new things about myself. My lifelong conviction that ‘I don’t want attention / flattery’ – is obviously a sham. I’m trying to tell myself that even if one of the Quintet were real awards, I wouldn’t qualify. This is just a blogger-friend being nice – or worse, choosing the first name that appears alphabetically (only time I’ve topped a list is with ‘Adnan’ – take that ‘Aesop’!). But then my right-brain is cancelling out all reasoning by whispering sweet little nothings ‘you’re really that good – they love you, they really love you’. Here’s the thing: I am a southpaw / lefty and I favor my right-brain.
Much love to Deepa at ‘Inspiring Evolution’ for the nomination. I don’t know what it means – but I am lovin’ it.

Cringing as I describe myself
Awkward, blessed, conformist, deep, egg-eater, filibusterer, God-fearing, honest, idiocrat-in-chief, Jordan-lover, kind, listener, meager, nepotist, ogler, pundit-impersonator, quiet, reader, structure-seeker, ‘try-hard’er, unsuspecting, vindictive, wary, xcandalous (?), yeahbaby-shouter, zesty.
The virtual ‘pay it forward’ thingy (Nominations)
To the nominees, even if you’re award-averse – like I thought I was – and are considering unfollowing me, think of this as a tribute from a neophyte. In no particular order:
Tonight, I don’t care if the awards mean anything or not. I don’t care if someone just cooked it up out of nowhere. I’ve had fun blogging. And I’ve had fun reading others. This is my tribute to all those people who take time out to apply themselves at – pour themselves into – blogposts that reach hearts and minds all across the world and over.
