My Liebster Amendment



Let me begin this by saying that this award thing has been a new experience for me and I am not a natural at this kind of thing: interacting with others (especially online because it’s like pulling a name from a hat essentially) – in real life, I suffer from PTSD-borne Agoraphobia; in real time, I’ve been consciously harboring a violent fantasy infused by an insatiable revenge against a vast, organized, politically endorsed national outfit; in the real world, I have difficulty interacting with people for the most part, because I can’t relate to 9 out of 10 of them…

 In the presumptuousness that consumed my award-nominating frenzy yesterday, I apparently forgot about the fact that not all bloggers are receptive to the idea of being awarded for their blog; and nominated at least person who graciously declined to accept my nomination, as the blog I nominated is an “Award-Free Blog”.  (Again, to the blogger to which I refer:  please forgive my presumptuousness in putting you on blast)

So this morning, I thought I’d nominate another blog in place of the one that won’t be participating; and then I realized what a dumb ass I’d be if I did it again to someone else who didn’t want to be put on blast by some strange reader of the blogosphere. Then I was back to being convinced that I should nominate a fifth blogger for the award.

I chewed.

I chewed.

SIDE NOTE: There is ONE in particular in whom my innate impulse to nominate (because this blogger is an amazing example of what I consider modern-day chivalry and righteousness in ways that are so rare and unique) was immediately over-shadowed by the flashbacks that shot into my cerebral awareness of the loud and proud badges of his being an “Award-Free Blog”.

And even though this is NOT a NOMINATION for any kind of blog award, this link is still completely worthy of visiting, if my readers may be so inclined to check it out, it’s one of my favorite AWARD FREE SITES around.


The final nomination for the Liebster Award is going to someone I completely overlooked yesterday when I posted; and so I am glad it worked out this way because this woman has so many profoundly insightful tidbits that drop into my lap through reading her blog; she’s young mom and wife with a an amazing resilience that shines through all the way over here to the West Coast beaches…Please visit her site at

And with that, I conclude my Liebster Procedure Amendment (besides my final post with the 11 random questions to the nominees later today).

Blue Skies…

    Thank you for the shout out. Blogger Awards are one of those things that teeter o the the fence between cool recognition and a massive pain in the back side.

    I have never considered myself a chivalrous person. Hopeless romantic at times yes. Sometimes a little manic in my beliefs. Slightly OCD about certain aspects of my job. Also, sometimes a nice person, but don’t tell anyone, it would ruin my reputation.
