2009 Blog Awards

I go onto these blogs and they get these "awards." Who dished out these "awards?" Why aren't they reading my blog? My blog is award worthy. Most def.

So, I've taken it upon myself to dish out some Awards. As 2009 comes to an end it seems the most appropriate time. Plus, it will give everyone something to strive for in 2010. Yes, this will be an annual event. Maybe next year we'll dress up and have fancy drinks.


The 4 awards are:

BEST COMMENTER
POSITIVELY OPTIMISTIC
BEST PHOTOS
MOST INTRIGUING BLOG
Yeah, I made these up. But c'mon. You people deserve something.

Let's commence.


(Applause)


This year's Best Commenter Award goes to.......: Karlenn Smith

Seriously people, have you read this girls comments? They are thought out. They are full sentences with correct capitalization, punctuation, and grammar. PLUS, in all of three to four sentences she can comment, uplift, and share a personal insight from her own life! It's amazing.



The Positively Optimistic Blog Award goes to........ : Brett and Tiffany

This gal is always on the go. Running her kids to all kinds of cool events, making crafts, putting on plays... it's a whirlwind of excitement. And I have never in the 16 months I've been blogging heard her say one negative thing. I admire that. My blogs are normally complaints. It's what I feel like writing. But I love going on to Tiffany's blog and getting a little pick me up. It's like a vacation. A blog vacation. A blog-cation.



Best Photos, hands down, goes to..... : Megan Blethen

Megan is a photographer by nature. Her eye is impeccable. She can capture life's tiniest and most meaningful moments. The photos on her blog are gorgeous. Everything and everyone looks so soft and fresh. I love going on there and just browsing through old posts to see all the different pictures. She is very talented.

And finally, the award for The Most Intriguing Blog goes to... : Julia Marcum

Julie blogs every once in a while. She's not an every day post-er. She doesn't blog about what her and the hubs had for dinner. She doesn't update us on every week of her pregnancy. She doesn't fill us in on date nights. But let me tell you, when she blogs- it is solid gold. I never know what it is going to be about but it. is. GOOD! They are thought out and really beautifully written. She writes in a simple and witty style. She jokes about herself and shares childhood memories. It's a real treat to go on and read it. I'd ask her to post more- but I think that would take away some of the specialness.

We'd like to thank all the winners and their supporters for coming out tonight. It was truly a night to remember. Feel free to post an acceptance speech.

And for those of you going home empty handed... 2010 is a new year.
Don't hang your head too low.

*Weeping, hands shaking* - Oh my GOSH, I just did not see this happening. But I DID write a little note, just in case it did. *Taking the note out of my bra with shaking hands* - I'd like to thank the jerky girls in my ballet class that made me feel like a piece of crap. Because of them, I decided that I always wanted to make people feel good. I'd like to thank the person who came up with blogging. I'd like to thank the person who came up with commenting. I'd like to thank my beautiful friend, Patty, for writing the dang edgiest, funniest, spunkiest blog out there. *Grasping my golden statue and raising it high into the air* May blogging live on!!!

Girl, you know how to make someone have a great day! Thanks for the award...I am speechless! I agree whole-heartedly with your friend Karlenn...you have the spunkiest blog around! I know I have told you before that Brett laughs his butt off every time he reads your blog! Isn't it fun to see people's personalities come through on their blog! I hope everyone keeps blogging this year! It is enjoyable! As for the award...thanks again! I will try to keep up on the blog and I will be shopping for a "fancy dress" for next year's awards! I will try and keep the "blog-cation" ALIVE and positive! Thanks again for the honors! You are AWESOME! Have a great new years! I look forward to everyone's new years resolutions! I am off to get ready to chaperone the Tri-Stake New Year's Eve dance for the youth! Shoot, I should have bought a "fancy dress"! Oh well, Brett will get to dance with this "hot mama" in blue jeans!

You are sweet Patty for thinking up these "awards" and good job with them I don't know two of the friends but Karlenn and Megan's is very true! I love reading your blog and seeing what you come up with. You are very funny!

megan said...

Aaww thanks! My eyes are welling up...that's actually because they're really itching me at the moment, but none-the-less, I'm teary eyed:) I'm so glad you like coming to my blog and looking at the pictures. I love sharing them with everyone. Soon you'll be able to share pictures with us of your new little bundle of joy:) I can't wait!

megan said...

Oh, and I totally agree about Karlenn!! I also love reading her comments! She rocks!:)

Natalie said...

Oh well maybe next year, there was some tough competitiion this year. I put up a good fight, but wasn't the strongest, boo hoo. I think there should be a best friend award, just because, nothing to do with the blog, then I might have a fighting chance! If I was giving out an award for the funniest blog it would have to be yours!

What a great idea. I am going to have to agree with everyone else about your blog being the spunkiest. It is fun to read. You have a good way with your words and you make it very interesting to read and you know how to bring the reader into your writing.

Just when I was feeling bad about not keeping up with the bloggers...you twisted it into a good thing. Gracias hermana. You get the award for most honest and real. BOOYAH!
