A Thank You, Feminist Friday Plan, and two more things you want to read. With music.

Happy International Workers’ Day, and long may we endure. All of us.

Old School Harlequin nominated me for a Dragon’s Loyalty Award more than a week ago, and I have yet to say thanks. I’ve been busy. So, I’m saying thanks now, and congrats, OSHarley, on getting Liebstered again. Best of luck with your Facebook page, which will soon be added to the feed I use to track blogs with fan pages. I will never not say thank you for an award.

Thanks for the Awards! (with weekend preview)

Thanks to friends Natacha, Ali, and CompGeeks for nominating me for Very Inspiring Blogger, Wonderful Team Member Readership, and Versatile Blogger  awards. I truly appreciate the compliments, and I’m very pleased that two of those nominations are for The Writing Catalog. I’m way behind on award nominations, and maxed out with A to Z and local politics right now, but  I’m planning to do a week-long, written-in advance awards fest in late May, and use the free time during the week it runs to give my blogs an overhaul.I’m going to try another round of Feminist Friday discussion this weekend, beginning tomorrow morning. I’ll tweet a few invites once I get the post together. Not sure exactly how the post will go yet, but the fact that I spent several hours last night poring over rape statistics should give you a clue.

Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed Mississippi SB2681 today. Deep South Progressive has the story. I’ll have more to say about it over the weekend.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=95dFcWTBHQk

Thanks, Thoughts on Blogging Awards, and 7 Things About Me

versatileaward

Thanks to Diana for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award. She was nominated by E. of The Playground – a blog I heartily recommend. This is one of the first awards I noticed being passed around when I started my blogs, and it’s one I really wanted. I don’t rush to do nominations, but I do say thanks with a link within a day or two of receiving them.

I’ve said some of this stuff on comments threads and on Sourcerer’s awards page, but here is how I feel about awards. I love them. I enjoy receiving them and I enjoy passing them on. I think they are a good way to complement other bloggers on their work. I don’t attach any real status to them, but I do enjoy looking at a blog’s side bar and awards page when I first discover it to see which awards they’ve won.

Dragon’s Loyalty Award

Therefore I Geek:  When I nominated you for this award back in December, I was the sole contributor to Sourcerer. I was mostly blogging videos here and doing my writing at Part Time Monster to try and keep both blogs posting every day.

I nominated you because I wanted to include some geeks. I had no idea how people felt about these awards, this being my first, and you seemed nice. I wanted to give it to some good blogs that weren’t getting enough attention in the hope that a friend or two would give them a look. I am reblogging it because I approve of your nominations. You chose well, and apparently, so did I 🙂

We were very excited to be nominated for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award by Gene at The Sourcerer, and since it’s the first time we’ve had any acceptance into the blogging community, it has taken me a little while to calm down and compose my thoughts.  This time around I’ll post some facts about myself and maybe next time I’ll let Tracy have all the fun share my misery. 😉

  1. I spent four and half years at a military college and then have worked for the Navy for the last six.
  2. I have a bad habit of collecting stuff.  I use to collect card games and have sixteen 800 count, full card boxes still sitting in a dresser drawer. Now I collect comics, and they don’t fit in a dresser drawer.
  3. My sister and I look so little alike that when she lived with me for six months people thought…
