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.
