First, I owe you all a huge apology. I was nominated in the following categories for BBAW: Most Chatty, Most Eclectic Taste, Most Concise, Best Literary Fiction, Best Blog Name, Best Commentor, Best Community Builder, Most Prolific Blog and Most Humerous/Funniest.
My post about how blogging reminds me of high school was nominated for Best Post.
In addition, Dewey’s 24-Hour Read-a-thon was nominated for Best Community Builder and Best Challenge.
And TLC Book Tours was nominated for Best Blog Tour Group.
It wasn’t that I was ungrateful. I wasn’t! In fact, I was giddy when I got my emails, but I was one of the BBAW volunteers and hoo boy I lived and breathed BBAW for a whole month. So I didn’t have any time to stop and thank you all for thinking of me when you nominated blogs for BBAW. I can’t even tell you how much that meant to me.
And then the shortlists were announced, and I fell off my chair when I saw I was shortlisted for Best Literary Fiction Review Blog. Dude, have you SEEN who else was shortlisted? Caribousmom, Boston Bibliophile, Rhapsody in Books and books i done read. Could the bar be set ANY HIGHER? I didn’t think so. They are all like a wonderfully rich dark chocolate, and I’m like Hershey’s syrup.
And then as I was scrolling down, I almost made water come out of my nose when I saw I was shortlisted for Most Chatty. Booyah! I AM CHATTY!
Are you ready for the irony?
I was also shortlisted for MOST CONCISE. So, I talk a lot but don’t say much. Weird, huh?
And before you get all down on the BBAW volunteers, each person nominated had to submit 5 permalinks, so I was able to showcase each quality without looking like I have multiple personalities.
This post will end soon, I promise!
And if I didn’t have enough tears coming out of my eyes, I found out that my post, This Blogging Thing Reminds Me of High School, was nominated for Best Blog Post.
You guys rock my world.
