Love the post below this one that is on Oprah and Frey; if you haven’t read it, please do,or don’t. Oh yes, I was more than a bit obsessed; it’s the fourth or fifth version! It’s Sunday night and I changed it once more.
If I were going to have a contest for best blogs, and tie it in with a a bloggers conference on a beautiful tropical island, I would want it to end with a bloggers banquet and ball.
The entire event would be populated with bloggers that I know from all over the world, bloggers that I have yet to meet; spouses, children and friends of bloggers who are popular characters in their blogs.
Hopefully I would be very rich and could afford to pay for the entire tropical island, rooms, food, drink and all extras; plus of course airfare for everybody to come.
But since that is a “hopeful” not a reality; I think that it would be wonderful if a corporation decided to sponsor it. They could also sponsor a blog “competition” with stated rules;explanations of what blog fits into what category, and make it into a true competition, not a free-for-all, or who the heck knows what’s happening?
I’m not a competitive person though I have tried my hardest to become one. One of my biggest managerial strengths was to make each person who worked for me, responsible for something real and outside of their regular job. This helped us foster a team spirit; and I made sure that they were paid extra.
What I love about blogging, besides the ability to write about whatever I want to whenever I want to is meeting other bloggers. Have written a lot about blogging as a community; and blogging as the first true meritocracy in publishing.
When I redo my categories and put pages in that link to the subjects, it will be much easier to find these posts, the Zachary ones and many others. Find it amazing that people put up with my many interests. Thank you.
There will even be a page for all the great things people have said about Courting. Since I have attracted many negative comments in the past, I might put them in also.
Anna of Pixel Forte and BIO made many much needed changes that will let Courting become my dream blog. Yes okay I have a dream blog. When I began Courting I knew nothing about blogs, zilch, less than zero. I knew about Wonkette, and little more.
Now I know much more, and know how to use Courting so that she reflects my interests, and people who have recently begun reading Courting will be able to make sense out of the posts. Almost feel like not writing anything new until I finish that, and will be happy to take bets from people…sorta like the Pia Savage superbowl of permanent half time.
Feel so blessed to have met so many wonderful people. Too lazy to name them all now, and petrified that I might forget some. In Feburary I’m going to become a virtual auntie; who would have thought that?
Last March we began BIO;small liberal blogs weren’t supposed to be welcome on the blogging circuit. We were more than welcomed. The new BIO is my other dream blog;it’s fun besides being serious.
If I only didn’t have to make money, I could spend all my time blogging. But alas, life does call.
Just can’t wait until the first annual Bloggers Banquet and Ball.
