I’m Just Not That Into Me
Yesterday I posted about the plethora of awards that have appeared on my metaphorical doorstep in the last week, and promised to reveal a final one today. It is the “7×7” Award, which was granted to me by the fine lady at Hobbling Around. So far, she is the only one who has bestowed this great honor upon me, so I must be doing something wrong – a fact that became all too clear as I settled down to do some of the research the “7×7” Award entails.
You see, the “7×7” Award has the caveat that you give links to 7 of your own posts. And, as I was reading some of my older posts, I realized I ain’t as funny as I think I am. Which is quite disappointing. I crack myself up while I’m typing every day. But I was wincing more than cracking as I read over some of my work. Quite frankly, I don’t know how you People put up with me – especially on the days when I don’t post Wonderbutt pictures.
Most Popular AND Most Surprisingly Successful – Pretty much any post that gets more than 2 comments surprises me with its success. By some fluke, this one has gotten over 1,000 views so far. https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/11/20/would-you-be-interested-in-renting-a-bull-dozer/
Most Underrated – I am putting this one primarily because the number of Wonderbutt fans has grown astronomically, and this early post includes a video of him channelling Stevie Wonder. https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/08/12/what-stevie-wonder-and-stephen-colbert-have-in-common/
Most Controversial – None of my posts have lit a fire under anyone’s bottom, as far as I know, but this is one of the ones I was afraid to publish because of the number of Facebook acolytes out there. https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/dont-hate-me-because-i-dont-like-you/
Most Beautiful – The writing isn’t beautiful, but the sentiment is somewhat attractive (a tribute to my sister, Crash). https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/08/21/can-you-teach-a-cat-to-roller-skate/
Most Helpful – This is sage advice for anyone trying to lose weight. https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/the-wonderbutt-weight-loss-program/
Most Prideworthy – I am proud of this one because it’s when I finally confirmed that I am a horrible mother. I’m not proud of being horrible – just that I am aware of it. https://whatimeant2say.wordpress.com/2011/08/31/are-you-sure-it-doesnt-say-skunk/
And here are the 7 blogs that I highly recommend:
I think all of you are wonderful – particularly now that I’ve been re-reading my own blather.

I’ll enjoy going over to those suggested blogs and rereading your 7 best posts!
I’m not sure I would actually say that they are my best…
Me too, I think you’re hilarious!
Thank you! I forget. How much did I say I would pay you for that compliment?
Sometimes I cringe (and sometimes I cry) when I read some of the stuff I’ve written. Congrats on yet another award.
I’m not accepting any more awards that require me to read my own writing!
Congrats on another well deserved award!
Thank you! Your kids give me some of my inspiration!
This blog thing is a whole new world to me – absolutely fascinating!
Ah yes. I remember those days of innocence….
Congratulations on your award but I’m kind of distracted – trying to catch those snowflakes floating through your blog.
I know what you mean. I may have to nix the snowflakes, but I thought it might be fun for a couple of days.
I am so excited and so honored to be mentioned in your 7×7 list! I have never heard of the 7×7 award – but you can be sure that now I am intensely interested because, well, it directly relates to me (have you seen the name of my blog?). Also, I will be reading all 7 of your links that you posted and no doubt, LMAO. Thanks so much for the nod and for posting funny content all the time! You rock!
Congrats on the award. 🙂
You’re still a riot, adorable dog or no.
I think we are all alike in that we think we are funnier than we actually are. It’s getting a bit late for me tonight but I do want to come back and read your 7. So I guess I’ll have to follow you to make sure I can find you again. I have no idea how I came to your page but I know I’ve seen the title of your blog a lot.
Glad to have you aboard!
Congratulations….well done ..maybe you’ll get another one
I think I’m full up now!
Thanks for the links to your great blogs. I really enjoyed all of them. You do have a way with words that puts a smile on my face while reading.
Thanks! That’s what I aim for!
Congratulations on your award. Well deserved! I loved your comment “I crack myself up while I’m typing every day”. You have such a great sense of humor 🙂
Thank you! You are always so kind, sweet Bassa!
Thank you for the kind reference. I’m just a mild mannered reporter. No I’m not. But I do enjoy reading your pieces, even if I am one of the most silent / frequent-updaters of wordpress.
Always a pleasure,
