2008 Blog Awards (aka taawdy’s)

I’m just back from a very long day at work. I thought I’d get out of work at 10:30am like I normally do but the FBI and IRS worked together to change that.

Agents from both agencies raided business, homes and Cuyahoga County offices. My stakeout location was the Cuyahoga County Engineer’s office on the Superior Viaduct. Luckily, it’s very close to my home. I got to eat at Ponte Vecchio Ristorante Italiano for the first time. It wasn’t bad. I’ll be surprised if this post makes sense because I’m tired but I want to put something up on the blog.

More importantly, I got a blog award from my friend from the north, Trooper Thorn from Dogs and Jeans. I’m honored and I didn’t even prepare a speech for this occasion. I never thought I would even win given the competition, everyone out there is so talented. I would like to thank God… my parents… and everyone I forgot to mention.

At any rate, with this award comes a little work.

1. Put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4. Add links to these blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

Here are my honorees:

1.) Trooper Thorn: He gave me the award so I’m sending one back to him. Here are his picks for his original awards.

2.) Mom2Amara: She’s been my friend/blog buddy for the longest so she gets an award. She gets right to the point, she knows what she wants, look out family, she’s talking about you! You go girl.

3.) Life, Liberty & The Pursuit Of Your Boyfriend: Her blog is edgy. Make sure to visit her site on Tuesdays. It’s a special day. She’s even more awesome than her blog and can I tell you she’s a load of fun.

4.) Tivo Changed My Life & Bruce2Go: This husband & wife blogging combo introduced me to the world of blogging years ago now. They’re currently studying in Europe but just browse their blogs and you’ll see it appears as if they’re having more fun than cramming for tests.

5.) Cleveland’s A Plum: Her blog lists her as just blogging for more than a year but already she’s getting a ton more comments (Listen up everyone!!!) than I get. I know I have readers but I’ll take some of your witty comments. If you don’t have an ID, sign-up. Anyhow, she’s all about Cleveland. That gets an award in my book!

6.) These Days Of A Busy Mom: She’s my favorite Aussie gal. I love getting her perspective from the “Land Down Under”. I count on her comments every now and then. She always also has some fresh sounding music on her blog.

7.) Manager Mom: My other favorite mom blogger. I get the humorous view of life as a working mom. She’s got a knack for photoshopping with Windows Paint. Check out her pictures, you can hardly see where the pictures are merged together. Worth the read, every post!

8.) Newshutr’s Views: Want to know what life’s like being a TV videographer/photojournalist/cameraman working the Cleveland streets during the overnights. Well, you don’t have to wonder any longer. Check out the antics of covering and bringing you the news.

Want even more?? Check out my blogroll on the left side of the page. They’re all winners but I have to stick to the instructions.

Congratulations to everyone. Happy linking and cross posting!
