The Whole Fam Damily

(I used to have a friend who, completely unrelated to the content of this post, often said “Well, siss on you pister, you and yer whole fam damily can go buck fufallos.” I just never got tired of it.)

A few weeks ago I got a note from New Urban Habitat, that she’d chosen me as one of seven recipients of the Kreativ Blogger Award. I am honored, especially since she has a very impressive blogroll. I’m now supposed to divulge seven things about myself, and then pass the award along to seven other bloggers.

I never have been much of a direction follower.

It’s cool to bolster everyone up, and I’m all for it. But it does seem a tad more like chain mail to me than an award. If I remember right from those ‘scare the kids into chastity’ AIDS diagrams in high school, 7 x 7 x 7 adds up quick. Purty soon we’d all have… an award. And that just seems a bit silly to me.

So, at the risk of being shamed and potentially excommunicated from the creative blog world, I’m going to sort of pass.

By sort of, I mean that– true to form– I’ve just changed the rules to suit me. I do like the idea of creating community, giving smaller blogs exposure and sharing good stuff around! So, I’ve added a new thingy onto my sidebar, with all my readers’ blogs. I got these all from comments, so if you’re a reader who’s never commented and would like your blog added, just comment here and I’ll hitch it right on!

And so’s ya’ll know, I’ve subscribed to all your blogs with a reader, but when I checked it against my own, the subscription didn’t show up. So, if you (like me) watch your sub numbers obsessively, count me in there among them!

Also, I’m going to set up the flickr group as mentioned earlier, so we can all get cozy.

  1. *sigh* I am one of those who hasn’t made it to your reader yet. However, I’m a new reader to yours and definitely a big fan! Thanks for the daily kick in arse with a smile.

    1. you’re up now (on the blogroll). no time to check out your blog till later. just peeked, enough to say, whoa baby, you got a 13 year old? is that photo of you circa 1990s, or what?

  2. Oh, you’re brave! I’ve thought the same about awards, there seems to be so many of them floating around – but who wants to seem ungrateful, right? Someone was clever when they thought up that sort of chainmail.

    Nice to be able to have a peek at who else is reading you too.

  3. I am a new reader- but I love your blog! Especially those last few posts about homemaking. I really fell like you were talking directly to me and my insecurities. Thanks. I have been making my way through the archives- yea!
