I was quite surprised recently, to find I had received the Versatile Blogger Award from Krithika. She has a wonderful blog, so needless to say, I was very grateful. It comes with a few requirements though, all of which are reasonable and not too demanding. The three requirements are,
Thank the person who gave you the reward.
List seven random facts about yourself.
Nominate fifteen new bloggers for the award.
Those of you who know me (if you read my blog, trust me…. you ‘know me’) realize that as a Pirate, I tend to bend the rules to fit my needs. I remember hearing over the years, something along the lines about them being merely “guidelines”, something I adhere to without provocation. Requirement number one, no problem, I am quite thrilled to get the reward, and very grateful that Krithka (Thanks!) was kind enough to give it to me. Requirement number two is easy, but you may be startled by my responses, which is the point actually, if I get the gist of the request accurately. Requirement number three though, that one my friends, I’m going to have to modify to fit my twisted perspective of intention vs stated objective.
I have seen this reward given out previously, and the requested number of future recipients has varied from 7-15. All well and good mind you, but it got me to thinking, dangerous in it’s own right, and darn near criminal when it comes to the effects it may have on others. Can I come up with 15 blogs? Certainly. Will they all be worthy of the award? Well….. not actually. So it seems, I impale myself on the horns of this dilemma. Do I nominate 15 blogs as requested for the sake of propriety, or do I instead, nominate those few blogs that I sincerely feel are worthy of being versatile blogs, and should be aptly rewarded. Yeah, I know…. that one’s a gimme, I choose the latter. 🙂 With grateful and sincere thanks behind me, I move onward through the darkness….
