I think I may need a bigger bra?


Because, somehow, my Blog has managed to grow to a "double E"? I had noticed this post over at Moue Magazine, by Brandy, and was planning on writing about this:
This post is brought to you by the letter "E"
Maryanne of the excellent blog Maryannaville bestowed upon us the Excellent Blog Award. Award rules stipulate that recipients must pay it forward to ten other worthy bloggers. Here are my choices for the Excellent Blog Awards. Acceptance speeches are welcome, but not mandatory, and we reserve the right to cue the orchestra if you ramble for too long.

ROTUS, Cangrejero of The Midpoint, The Political Cat, Monkeyfister, Stephen from Drinking Liberally…, Flea of One Good Thing , The honorable Mr. Jon Swift , Shaun of Kiko’s House , The Station Agent of Ice Station Tango (who is having technical difficulties), And… Skippy B. Roo . Congrats, everyone and we’ll meet you at the open bar.

Surprisingly, skippy also nominated me for this... Leaving me feeling twice as humbled as Blue Girl, Red State:
It is with humble gratitude we accept this award, bestowed upon us by one of our original tour guides through the wilds of blogtopia (and yes, he did indeed coin that phrase)...Skippy! Skippy was tapped by the lovely Brandy at moue magazine, in addition to us, he also tapped some fine blogging talent (and poached some of our obvious choices) when he also reached out and touched:

zaius nation, zen comix, whiskey fire, vidiot speak vagabond scolar, mike, the mad biologist, the galloping beaver, echidne of the snakes, drinking liberally in new milford, the culture ghost, correntewire, cookies in heaven, cannablog, blue gal, and badtux, the snarky penguin.
Much like skippy, "we are just honored to be nominated..." Well, in my case "I am honored" since this is not a group Blog and I am not a doctor, nurse nor royalty. And doubly so, NOT just because two Bloggers singled me out but because of the quality of the other Blogs that are listed up there. There are a lot of great Blogs in Blogtopia (y!sct). Many of them are huge compared to this little corner of it, and some of them are relatively new and just developing a readership community. But they are all great in their own way.

So... Here I go before the kegs up there run out or the beer gets flat:

Hat City BLOG

Connecticut Bob

Spazeboy

Ravings of a Semi-Sane Madwoman

1%moreconcious

Cool Justice

Man Eegee

The Life and Times of a Carolina Parrothead

The Crone Speaks

The Strange Death of Liberal America

And yes! I am going over ten since I got it twice, and since this is about sharing some of your favorite places. Trust me... I could easily add 20 more with all of the Blogs I read.

The Liberal Journal

Alien Trucker

PSOTD

Howard Empowered

House of the Rising Sons

The Field Negro

ThePoliticalCat

Mock Paper Scissors

Identity Check

My View of "It"

As I said, I could easily add another 20 Blogs and still have left some very worthy places out but it is my hope that some of the Blogs I chose will, by sheer luck, pick them out... And all of those Blogs are not necessarily in any particular order. They truly are all great in their own way!

Can't think of anyone more deserving!

Congratulations.

Also thank you for the mention, I feel a bit humbled right now.

ThePoliticalCat said...

Ohmygoodness, thank you ConnecticutMan! Now I'm a double-E too. This is all good, though. All us smaller blogs are makin' lots of linky noise and it's pushing us all up the hill.

Connecticut Man1 said...

Liberal American... You have no reason to be humble. You and The Field Negro are probably the biggest and most read Blogs on that list.

And thepoliticalcat... You are correct AND welcome!

Anok said...

Whoohoo! way to "grow up" CTman! Hey, are those some EE blogs in your bra, or are you just happy to see me? *g*

Congrats...and um, thanks *Blush*....I could always go up another cup size ;)

Connecticut Man1 said...

lol anok. Always happy here. :) And, honestly, the only bigger cup I really need is the one full of coffee!
