Morning Sugar-Lips, how’s it hanging?
For a Monday things are pretty darn good here too. I am spending some serious time translating the terrible writing of someone who knows more than me about a technical subject into something people can understand. It was Thom who cracked the code for me by suggesting the guy was using a voice-recognition programme, leading to some hugely long sentences and some unlikely word choices. Today the client advocated ‘interstellar installations’ and while that’s a great idea, we’re not quite ready for it yet!
In other news, I found out yesterday I’d been nominated for a Bloggie… well, two actually. What is a Bloggie? Well, its an awards ceremony organised by the Blogger and Vlogger Network for Second Life.
I’m not one of the high-profile bloggers and I’m quite happy to maintain a low profile for the most part, but what made the cockles of my crusty old heart warm is knowing that at least three people had to nominate me for each category. That’s at least three people who like what I do or wish to support me in it (or both). That feeling is so much better than any award could be and if one of them was you, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The categories are something like ‘Humorous blog’ and ‘Narrative blog’ or something like that… it means I talk a lot and you think it’s funny. Well, maybe not you, but someone does!
Which is pretty harsh considering how totally seriously I take this whole blogging thing 😀
Anyway, I’m not someone to seek plaudits or beg for support on a usual basis, but as I’m up for the awards in these categories, I don’t fancy the idea of losing. I mean, that’s what will likely happen. I will go along to the awards ceremony with all the other (shinier) bloggers and I will sit there and lose…. IF.
IF you don’t support me. I know, that was a real emotional piece of sleight of hand, right? If you can bring yourself to go and vote in each and every category (yup, that’s required) then you can vote for me in my two categories.
Links to blogs or Flickr are provided by each name so you can make an informed choice, you could stick a pin in the list of names and choose at random, or you could choose the name you like best (although that is not recommended, that’s probably how Benito Mussolini got in – great name Ben!).
Why would you do that? Well, because on the 26th of October, you’d give an underdog a chance. I wouldn’t feel like I just talked into the ether and nobody listened. I’d feel like I had friends here 😀
To be fair, I already feel I have friends. I’m lucky enough to have some really good friends who have been supportive for a long time now and I’ve met some fantastic people through this blog. So thank you all for your part in it, even if it’s only reading my posts or pressing like. It’s all appreciated.
Ok, I think that’s quite enough of that. Let’s talk about clothes.
