My fellow blogger, Tori, with her brilliant writing and ability to find humor in a trip to Target with a toddler even though it’s much less enjoyable than say, a root canal at the DMV, recently bestowed/forced upon me the honor/curse/if-I-don’t-do-this-bad-things-will-happen,
7 Posts Award. Now I have the quandary of choosing seven of my best posts to share with you. I’ve only written about 50 total, so it’s slim pickings, guys, sorry. And if you’re already falling asleep, feel free to stop reading now and check out Tori’s The Ramblings instead, I don’t mind. The woman is hysterical.
1) Post that Gets the Most Hits
Things My Vacuum Likes to Eat—Day after day, this post is read by someone, somewhere in the world who undoubtedly has a vacuum crisis of epic proportions and needs advice. This post ain’t it.
2) Post that is the Most Lame
Besides the above post (ahem)…and a few others (cough)… What’s a Widget?– is extremely lame. In my defense, it’s my first post. Although I am surprised it didn’t get Freshly Pressed, it was a gem.
3) Post Full of the Most Ruminations and Contemplations that My Head Imploded
It’s all in your mind–About trying to come to grips with the point of writing in the first place. Well, I think there was a point to this post, but I can’t remember it now. And this little synopsis is probably not going to help you. I’m not that good with words. Or maybe I am. Read it and find out.
4) Post that Mostly No One Read and if you do, be prepared to cry unless you are a cold, heartless human being and/or don’t like dogs
A Girl and Her Dog
5) Post that is Found by the Most Bizarre and Disturbing Search Engine Phrases
Quick, Mom! Run and Hide!– A few recent searches: “funny to my mother you managed to keep her sanity raising us kids how did you do it”
“naked mom ran across the stage to hide”
“pauly d has to take evasive action in the hot tub”
“why does my cat always run and hide from my kids”
“how to hide an ugly fan in the bathroom”
“sometime i think if i sing and brush my hair at the same time, it will have special powers and glow(:”
6) Post with the Most Tears Shed While Writing
Struggling to Breathe—About my dear father who passed away when I was in college.
7) Post Filled with My Most Favorite Things in Life
Bedtime Stories— About sleep and Three’s Company. Really, what more do you need to have a truly fulfilling life?
There, done! Hopefully I won’t lose too many readers now.
And I hereby force this honor onto the following victims, who don’t have to reciprocate and might not read this anyway, but I think their blogs are totally awesome. Check them out, you won’t be disappointed:
The Good Greatsby This guy is an enigma: always hilarious, posts daily, has a multitude of readers, wears a smoking jacket and owns a robot. I live vicariously through him every chance I get. He transports me directly into his world in China and I don’t want to leave.
The Simple Life of a Country Man’s Wife Her pictures are gorgeous, her words beautifully haunting and stay with me long after I’ve read them. She transports me directly into her world in South Dakota and I don’t want to leave.
Partial View through Priya’s Looking Glass Priya’s writing is so unique and so gorgeous, I often have to reread her posts. She has an uncanny ability to evoke a certain feeling that I never knew could be put into words. And again, she transports me directly into her world in India and I don’t want to leave.
I might have to consider relocating from Maine, but then I’d have to change the name of my blog. So nah, I’ll just keep reading the above blogs instead.
