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:

Mightier Than the Pen

I’m on the Bandwagon

Something New Please

Blue Speckled Pup

Reasonably Ludicrous

An Exercise in Narcissism

Life with Olive

I think all of you are wonderful – particularly now that I’ve been re-reading my own blather.

  1. I’ll enjoy going over to those suggested blogs and rereading your 7 best posts!

  2. Me too, I think you’re hilarious!

  3. Sometimes I cringe (and sometimes I cry) when I read some of the stuff I’ve written. Congrats on yet another award.

  4. Congrats on another well deserved award!

  5. This blog thing is a whole new world to me – absolutely fascinating!

  6. Congratulations on your award but I’m kind of distracted – trying to catch those snowflakes floating through your blog.

  7. 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!

  8. Congrats on the award. 🙂

    You’re still a riot, adorable dog or no.

  9. 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.

  10. Congratulations….well done ..maybe you’ll get another one

  11. 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.

  12. 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 🙂

  13. 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,
