Stylish Blogger Award.

April 20, 2011

Several weeks back, Melissa from http://play101.wordpress.com/ awarded me the Stylish Blogger Award.  Basically, this is an unofficial honor that is passed around the blogging community from one blogger to another.  I had planned on mentioning this at the time, but my surgery was scheduled very quickly and the recovery took longer than expected.

Having seen this award talked about in a few different places, there are a four rules for those receiving the Stylish Blogger: (1)Credit the person who awarded it to you, (2)List a seven things about yourself, (3)Pass the award on to other deserving souls, (4)tell the new recipients about it.

(1) Thanks Melissa!

(2) A few things about me:

  • I am a germaphobe.  I even wipe down my credit card or ID after using them.
  • I am a Boston Red Sox fan (and was one looooong before they actually started winning).
  • I still read the newspaper every day.  I don’t care that the news isn’t up-to-the-minute.
  • I always vote.  National, state, or local elections – it doesn’t matter.
  • I enjoy playing board games with my wife, although I never actually win.  Ever.
  • I’ve only had one cavity in my life.
  • I recently discovered that putting avocados on hamburgers brings personal enlightenment.  Try it.

(3) Here are the blogs that I visit most often.

  • Doodlemum – A wonderful daily journal-type blog using illustrations and a minimum of text.  Equal parts funny and touching.  Anyone with small children will appreciate her drawings.
  • Errantry – If I could actually draw, I would want to draw like this.  Clean line drawings and interesting subjects make me wish more children’s books had illustrations like these.
  • Jbabb Comics – Cartoons and comic strips that actually make me laugh.
  • Flufflepot – This blog tells stories using digital cartoons.  I really like the style and am amazed by the animated picture at the top of the page.  Very neat.
  • A Lego a Day – Something different.  This blog has been freshly pressed by wordpress twice in the past few months.  Everyday brings a new photo of lego people doing interesting things.  You really have to see it to understand.


  1. Awww, thank you! I’m honoured to be mentioned along with those awesome blogs. The whole world should know about Doodlemum!

    • Ha! You found out before I even had a chance to leave a comment on your blog about it!

      • That’s because I subscribe to your blog 😉

  2. Hey, thanks for the mention!

    • You more than deserve it. I really enjoy your style!

  3. I stopped being a Red Sox fan when people gave me grief for being a fan but not having lived in Massachusetts. For me, it became a burden and no longer a challenge to be a fan so I said the heck with that and went with the (now) local team.

    • I bet they didn’t give you too much trouble until the Sox started winning. 🙂

      Since I still live in a state without a pro team, I feel no shame in following the team of my own choosing.

  4. […] of informal blogging awards from a couple of very kind people.  They are both very similar to the Stylish Blogger Award that was passed along to me back in […]
