100 Portugese LOVE this blog.

Creative Kerfuffle has bestowed the following award upon me:



It is an award for people who blog to forge relationships and use it for therapy to get through whatever it is we are getting through...however, I kind of wondered what it meant...literally...and after some Google translation, I have decided the award is of Portugese descent AND means:

This blog invests and believes in the vicinity,

I do. I invest in the vicinity ALL while believing it in. At the same time.

So then I checked my stats to see if the Portugese that are in Portugal are enjoying my blog and nada. However, there have been visitors from Turkey and Vietnam. So, no, 100 Portugese aren't really loving this blog, but this is my 100th post, and I needed an attention grabber.

Back on track, I am to award this to 8 bloggers to keep the chain of "keepin' it real" bloggers going. So, I choose:

Raising Steamboat*
Creative Kerfuffle*
This Wonderful, Crazy Life*
Planet Davila
the brain
Juggling Scarves
A Very Merry Unbirthday
Marmite Breath Slept Here
Hey Y'all

*These chicks have already won...but I am just saying.

**And I know it is a list of 9, but 3 already won, so really I am newly bestowing on 6.

When I first started blogging the only blogs I had ever read were Catherine Newman when she did the one time a week posting for BabyCenter that my sister told me about. Then I came across Dooce from a recommendation on MySpace. When I found my sister's blog, I found Ashley and Bea. Then through Bea I found CK. Others I found through BlogSecret, and even others through NaBloPoMo.

Now I rarely read the "A" blogs...only when my blogroll are off taking care of their children, hanging out with their husbands, being at work...you know, living their lives and NOT posting every day.

Writing this blog and getting your feedback, both serious and silly, is something I didn't even know I was missing, but let me tell you, it is HUGE to me now.

The last paragraph? That says it all. Perfectly and easily. I could never have said it so well. Not without using about 500 more words anyway.

And Woo hoo!! I love presents! Especially when I have no idea what they say. Thank you. I'm very happy that we found each other!

Blogging. Is awesome.

My word verification is "buous." That's Portuguese for "I know, right??"

Not Your Aunt Bea said...

Thank you! I agree, the last paragraph says it all. And BTW, I worked today and we had someone come in with some holiday panties on which cracked all the guys up. Especially as she was pushing 60, so they were joking that they must of been from Christmases long ago. I thought of you! (No, not that your panties were from Christmases long ago! Just the themed panties thing).

OH MY GOD. You guys laugh at people's underpants????? So the whole "in an accident thing" is NOT an urban legend?

I am at Lane Bryant's tomorrow. Driving very carefully I might add.

if i commented twice on this post please forgive me. first day back at work...brain not working.
so, that award is really in portugese? who knew? how very cosmopolitan of us : )
and i'm w/ you on the blog thing--i read a couple of blogs like that from time to time but don't comment there mostly because i don't actually feel like part of that particular "group," if that makes any sense.

DAVs said...

Awww, thanks HP.
I need to update my blog, but there's often too much to say and nothing to say all at the same time, you know?
Oh my, the word verification is: homlygog and that makes me laugh for some reason!
