|Life is not fair.|
Another thing I've noticed about bloggers is that, whenever anyone asks them why they started their blog - to many a thankless, inane activity - they all respond in the same way. A shrug, a half-smile, and some variation on the phrase "I was bored."
This is only partially true. What they mean is, I am tired. I am tired of everyone not thinking I am as awesome as I think I am.
A few days ago, I made one small breakthrough in my own personal battle, "The People VS. Caroline's Ego", when my friend Cliodhna of Dann Sind Wir Helden awarded me this thing.
|Whatever it is|
Apparently, it means my blog is good. At least that's what I'm taking from the word "blog" and the cartoon heart that quickly follows. I've also been informed that it is my solemn duty to pass on this award to 3 other bloggers who have under 100 followers. So, uhm, here it goes.
The first that springs to mind is a little-known blog called Manmachine201's Uneasy Guide to Life. I know very little about the man or the machine, but he is one of very few bloggers that can give you a laugh while still getting a worthwhile point across. My favourite is his hilarious post about the media's sympathy war between Norway and Amy Winehouse.
Another blog I'd like to mention is AWNYA, one of the few craft bloggers that doesn't seem like a total dickhead. Not only are her designs wonderful, she also brings a lovely presence to her blog, and completely avoids that smugness that Properly Creative people seem to be perpetually hampered with.
Lastly, I'd like to mention This Guys Pet Peeves, a blog that is so fuelled by vitriol that it's entirely likely that "This Guy" will despise being tagged in this post. This blog is the internet's answer to Seinfeld. Another comment he'll probably hate.
