Award FU (“Follow-Up” – you smut-minded people!)

PhonyThank you to those readers who responded to my self-serving award post!  I wasn’t sure how that would go over, but you’ve demonstrated that at least some of you not only really love me and my blog (yes, grammar police, I know it should be “my blog and me”), but are capable of processing my words in the spirit in which they were intended.

True, the narcissistic part of my brain was hoping the award would go viral (“Whoopee, we all LOVE Cordelia’s Mom!”), but the practical side of me expected the whole Cordelia’s Mom, Still Enthusiasm Award idea to simply evaporate into the Twilight Zone [mixed metaphors are fun!].

Obviously, the award was created as a lighthearted response to the numerous awards in the blogosphere, some of which are legitimate and some of which are, like mine, self-serving.  I don’t mean to malign any of those other awards, and in fact, I proudly display a few of those coveted award badges on my own blog pages.

ThankYouEveryLanguageThere was the element of truly wanting to recognize those bloggers who have avidly supported me over the past 11 months – I believe you all know who you are.  I figured offering a no-strings-attached “award” would have a little more oomph than simply writing another “thank-you-for-still-loving-me” post.

And of course, there is always the possibility that some newer bloggers will think having that colorful award image on their own pages would be fun.  I know when I first started out, I would have put ANYTHING on my page (well, maybe except porn images), just to make myself look more legitimate and to try to gain a few more followers.

(Maybe that’s why the Harshly Pressed badge is still on here – although I do enjoy reading Opinionated Man, and was quite happy when he reblogged one of my posts awhile back. Plus, it was a nice way to finger-wave at the Wordpress Gods who have thus far failed to award me the much-deserved Freshly Pressed badge.)

SpecialOfferIn any event, the offer still stands:  Any of you who wish to add the Cordelia’s Mom, Still Enthusiasm Award image to your own blog page are free to do so.  You can find the image on the right side of this page, under “Awards” – just right click on it and save it to your own desktop, then copy and paste it into your own  blog.  Then, either link the image itself back, or let me know in the comments that you’ve used it.

Cody and I thank you.  (ooooo, new idea:  The  Puppy Cody Award!  I’ll work on that.)
