I’m honored. Thank you.
It seems I’ve been nominated for one of the prestigious 2010 DOC Awards.
I feel like a star!
So I logged on to see what I’d been nominated for. Actually, I’ve been dual nominated, but not necessarily for the categories I might have expected—although I didn’t actually expect to be nominated at all, so hadn’t really given it any thought whatsoever. Oh well, if I’d known what to expect today, I would have just stayed in bed. What’s the fun in life if you know what to expect?
So…. drum roll…. I’ve been nominated as the “Blogger who we wish would blog more.” Wow. I’m speechless. Well, momentarily anyway. I’m sure I’ll recover. This strikes me as a very high honor indeed. That readers want to read more of your work is, by far, the highest praise a writer can get.
I’ve also been nominated as “Best Photographer,” which I probably don’t deserve as I don’t put photos in my blogs that often, and when I do, about half the time I’ve just pulled some clip art or public domain photos off the web to illustrate a point.
To my surprise, in looking over the categories, I see I wasn’t fucking nominated for “Best use of Bad Language.” How on earth did that happen? Based on the shit-storm that was created by using a sprinkling of f-bombs (to Quote Amy T) in my books I figured I be a shoe-in here. Although, that might not be the best award to list prominently on a resume anyway. Maybe I need to get more creative in my use of the good ol’ Anglo Saxon slang.
But seriously, thank you. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is a great honor to be nominated.
