My Readers Rock!!!!!

When I started this blog a few short months ago, I didn't even really know what a blog was. As most of you are aware who really know me, I'm a computer dinosaur, bordering on the illiterate side. However, I took a gamble and went outside my comfort zone and started writing some humorous posts based on numerous recommendations of friends, who for whatever reason, think I'm funny. It was then, and still remains my goal today, to spread joy through my warped and wacky sense of humor. As all people experience when they start something new, I was beginning to doubt myself. I was wondering if I was accomplishing my goal. Do people actually find this blog funny? Are folks reading these posts and getting a daily dose of laughter? Are my attempts at humor even being noticed by anyone other than my closest friends who I basically bribe to increase my statistics?

Just when I was getting really depressed about it, I got a call yesterday from my friend Grayson. She said, "Hey did you know you won best blog in the Encore magazine"? SAY WHAT?????????? No, I had no fucking idea!!!!!!!!! Grayson was flipping through the magazine and saw the list of winners, and damn, if my blog wasn't among them. HOLY SHIT I WAS FLOORED TO SAY THE LEAST!!!!!!!!!!! I immediately called my husband and made him stop and get a few copies on his way home from work just to verify the fact. For those of you who are unaware, Encore magazine is a local publication that asks Wilmington residents to vote on a whole host of local restaurants, bars, retail establishments, etc. for their annual "best of" edition.

I was wondering why no one notified me of this HUGE honor since the awards ceremony was last Friday evening. It's because I'm such a complete doofus and never checked the box to allow my email address to be shown on my blog profile. The editors of the magazine had no idea how to get in touch with me. GEEZ, I'm just not the sharpest knife in the drawer!!!!!! But there I am celebrating and holding my plaque with pride.



So, this post is dedicated to ALL of my faithful readers who are receiving joy from these wacked out, warped and sometimes totally outrageous snippets of humor. Thank you so much Wilmington voters, and thank you to all of you who are regular visitors to my blog.

As a small token of my appreciation, I would like to offer a give away of a $20 Starbucks gift card to one lucky person. I'm sure someone out there likes a grande, decaf, nonfat, nowhip, peppermint mocha just as much as me!!! The rules of the contest are as follows:

1. You must sign up as a follower on my blog.
                               AND
2. You must comment on my blog (NOT my facebook page) as to what you like or dislike about my blog.

I will choose a winner at random. The contest ends Friday at 7 PM.

YOU GUYS ROCK and I'm goin' to keep on keepin' on with my theme for the New Year if that's OK with you: "Pursue what you're meant to do in twenty, one, two". I'm gonna keep on pursuing this blogging gig and see where it takes me.

  1. Well, I've been following you for a while despite your not following me and adding me to your blog roll, SNIFF, but I'm ok...

    As for comments, I'd like to see a bit longer and deeper (ooh, that sounded wrong) humor. That said, I always enjoy your posts and get a chuckle regularly. You're like comedic Metamucil!

  3. Congratulations! You've come a long way, baby - techie wise. This is quite an honor considering how short a time you've been writing this blog. I have laughed out loud more than once reading your take on some of the insane things that happen from day to day. One in particular.... I'll never see one of those Liberty Tax guys without thinking of you!
