Blog Housekeeping

Monday, August 16, 2009....

Over the past few months, people have recognized my little space in this big blog universe.

I've graciously accepted their nods, but have been a slacker as to executing the responsibility with accepting their gestures. I've wondered if it is because I didn't know what to wear? How to act? Have a great speech ready? None to these.

The reason I've been such a slacker is my inability to master placing the lovely awards on my blog -- yup, I have a case of UI. I know I can cure this with reading the Blogger help, but have chosen to read other blogs or just enjoy the weather. However, no longer. I am going to now properly accept the awards AND eventually figure out how to place them on the left nav bar of my blog.

Without further adieu, let me start:

Miss Nobody bestowed the One Lovely Blog Award.

The responsibilities of accepting this award include me:

1) Accepting the award, posting it on my blog together with the name of the person who granted me the award, with his or her blog link. - Check

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that I have recently discovered. I need to contact the bloggers to let them know I have chosen for this award. - Hmmm... 15 bloggers - more like 7 because I have to acknowledge bloggers for other honors bestowed upon me Wow...I've really let this celebrity blogger thing status go to my head. Bestowed upon me? Really? Who talks like that......

I'm thinking I'll just list some bloggers I've recently discovered. Some new to the blogging universe, others recently added to my list.

I'll let them know and they can do whatever they like with this honor. I don't want anyone to feel pressure to buy a new dress, shoes or end up on someone's world's worst blog entry list -- Wait, that can't happen in Blogger world.

Without further adieu, here they are in no random order:

Cooking for Assholes
Sarah in Paris
Food With Style

Do I need to remind anyone I love cooking

Wizard of Otin
West Coast Newlywed
Let's Have a Cocktail
Life Letters

Okay, I'm stopping here. I have several other awards and know I will need to acknowledge other bloggers in the universe that make my day.

Thanks again Miss Scribbles for the shout out.

Silly Stud - If you read the post, I've acknowledged blogs that I've recently discovered - not blogs that have VANISHED into thin air (Mr. 6 weeks since I've blogged).

okay what does UI mean? am I the only one who doesn't know?

Heckety said...

Ok then when you figure how to make the awards stay put in your side whatsit please let me know as I can't figure it out at all. I'd be most awfully terribly amazingly grateful!
And also, where do the awards come from in the first place- is there a cybercupboard somewhere?

otin said...

LOL! now I understand the email! I read it before I saw the post! Thank you for the honor!

Click on your blog's layout, then click on add a gadget in your sidebar, when the box pops up, go down to add a picture, click, and add it that way.


Patty said...

Congrats on all your awards. I also think it's hard to give back the awards especially when you have to give it to 15 blogs. Great job!
