Cure For The Common Blogspot Awards

I hope this posting is appreciated, it took a vast (and by vast I mean lots of clicking the next button) amount of research. I’m new to the blogging world so I thought I would take a look at what is out there.

After reading far too many blogs (and yes I leave comments) I have realized that the blogging community is missing a few things. More specifically, they are missing awards for the truly different blogs. You know the ones that stand out. I understand there are tons of ‘Best of Blog’ awards but we are missing awards for the blogs that scream, “Look at Me I’m Different’ (Different does not always mean good… just different)

In order to remedy this grave injustice I have initiated the first ever Cure for the Common Blogspot Awards. There are currently only five categories and a few nominations but the comments section will be open for further nominations and categories based on the approval of the Cure (This is not a Democracy). So without further ado I present to you the belated Cure for the Common Blogspot Awards of 2004, categories and nominations.

Blogs I Don’t Get Award
1. Multiple Languages, Gas Masks, and Guitars… You won’t forget it! Pimme.
2. Would you call yourself a ‘She weevil’? She Weevil.
3. A Crazy Wife, a Cow… Is this a Gateway Commercial? I Have a Crazy Wife.

Blogs That Scare Me Award
1. She says it is Ok because it is Art? Something About Noodles.
2. The name says it all… Bitchalicious.
3. Perfect blend of crazy… then why am I so scared? Perfect Blend of Crazy.

Craziest Title Picture Award
1. Did a steak ever look so unappetizing? Daves Big Beef.
2. Mom Says Dad taught him that… Jersey Humor.
3. With a picture like that you have to get nominated for more then one award Perfect Blend of Crazy.

Most Unnecessary Blog Award
1. Reality TV should never actually make it to reality… The Apprentice Boardroom.
2. Why, all I can say is Why? They're just donuts! Dunkin Doughnuts.

Most Out of Date Blog award
1. Our country is at war…they got that right…just a little behind the times CW Chronicles.

Disclaimer: Please remember this is all in good fun. If you have any nominations or catagories of your own please leave a comment. If there is one you would vote for let me know.

Thanks for the nomination. The title has a peculiar origin that I may at some stage go into.

Fiona "Sheweevil"

Hehe, thanks! In a sea of scary-looking girls tempting their readers with sexy header photos, I'm the exact opposite. And, it seems to be working just fine. ;^)

rachel said...

Oh yeah. I'm flattered.
You might 'get' I Have A Crazy Wife though if you realized the poor guy has to live with me. ;)

Stephanie said...

very cool idea and have a happy friday

Aimee said...

Fantastic idea... Will there be other catagories? Such as Most Likey to be Written by an Alter Ego, or The Induhvidual Award as given by Dogbert, or Scariest Anime Template Award?

Janet said...

Eerie. I used to have this exact same template AND I posted a very similar post. Are you sure you aren't me about 8 months ago?

girlpunch said...

Cool! So you've got awards now...you gna be sending the winners trophies or something?! I will email you my votes because I do not want the public to know who I voted for :P. When will you announce the winners?

Maybe you should have "Blogs that are so different nobody visits" award; you can look for blogs that are REALLY different but have a low hit rate or something...just a thought! Anyways this is a great idea!

Angie said...

I'm sure mine must fit in there somehow!

Pigs said...

Ha! Great idea.
