Really? No Way!


Since coming back from our trip, I've really been under assault by what started as an ear infection and ended up taking my sinuses hostage. Then it decided that my lungs, which are always the weakest part of Holly Land, were fair game. The good news here is that since my ears are fairly slammed down, I can't hear myself hacking up a lung. There's always a silver lining...

So this will be short because it's hard to type with my head flopped over to the side. I told you I was sick...

But, if you take a moment as you're reading this to look over at the right side of this page, yeah over there, by the adorable picture of moi, you'll see a new thingy....you'll see that over the weekend, when I wasn't looking because I was busy being ill....

Someone in blog land decided to nominate this blog of mine for 2009's Blogger Choice Awards!

At first, I didn't understand; I got a comment from an individual who is not a regular here at Your Mother Knows who said something about liking the blog and was happy to vote for me...

"Vote for me," I pondered, "What the heck is she talking about?!" And, with some further investigation, I get to the Blogger's Choice site to learn more about all of this. Of course, I had to set up an account to get on to find out anything, but that took, what? For me, about an hour...I'm sure it won't for you. But me? Sick + Computer Challenged = Delayed Gratification.

Turns out that a blogging buddy of mine, Neil, who I think is one of the funniest and most clever of us bloggers out there, (well it's not really him that's so funny- it's his dogs Nigel, Sola, and Truffles who run his world and write the blog, he simply takes dictation,) gets a great deal of pleasure and things to ponder from his visits with Your Mother Knows. And I have to say, I'm completely caught off-guard.

Never a good thing for me...to experience something that leaves me wordless. Speechless. Without a means of expression. Me without words?! And, in the rare times like that, I've learned that all I can do, with everything in me, is simply say, "Thank you. Really. Just simply Thank You." And, hope that the individual understands that I'm touched beyond words.

So, now that I know that this blog of mine is the Best Blog About Stuff entry...which made me laugh since that's really what I do, yammer about odd stuff...I ask that if you agree, please click that button and see where it takes you.

Trust me when I tell you, absolutely I don't expect I could win since I don't have zillions of followers, I simply have the best followers! However, the notion that someone would find what happens here of interest so much that they nominated it...well that really is the prize isn't it?

Meantime, please know that I wear my blogging badges proudly. While it's true that I don't blog for you- I blog for my brain's peace, and my Muse's outlet- I'd be lying if I said that I don't fall back on my marketing training of doing quality work that keeps a customer satisfied. What you think of my work here, does matter very much.

Many of you are on your way to becoming friends of mine, but even for those who only pop by on occasion, I am keenly aware of the value of your time invested. And, I always do my best to make sure that the investment pays off with dividends and more.

It's time for me to go lay down again. I get dizzy if I sit or stand for long...here's hoping I can 'hear' you better tomorrow. And, Neil, I hope you can hear me when I say, "Really. Thank you for the nomination. It means a lot coming from such a proficient and imaginative blogger such as yourself." Even if the dogs put you up to it and used you as a tool because your fingers fit the keys better than their paws do!

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka She Who Is Honored

Holly you have been on my mind, I was wondering if you were better and now I know that you are still feeling icky. Take care of yourself and get well.
Congratulations on your award. Your blog about "stuff" is wonderful!

Holly ... I made an attempt to vote yesterday ... set up my account ... never would accept my vote ... today I tried again and it wouldn't recognize my name/password so I've requested a new password three times and it's not forthcoming. You know I'd vote for you more than once if only I could.

Get better my friend!

Toni said...

I can't believe you hacked my Blogger's Choice Awards account again Holly, tsk tsk...

Life With Dogs said...

Ok I convinced myself I could be enough of an ass to let that linger until morning, but I don't know if I could sleep!

Meant every word, and I am sure your readers will concur. You rock. And I may not be a judge, but am always accepting bribes...
