Precious at Clockwork Desires and Alyssa at The Devil Orders Takeout have both been lovely people and nominated me for the Addictive Blogger Award! Thank you both—it’s fun to be addictive. I’m like a drug, folks, with the added bonus of not being illegal!
Anyway, we must get to the tag.
- Thank the person awarding you.
- Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started.
- Paste the blog award on your page.
- Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award.
I’ve told this story like three times before, so I’ll tell a different piece.
This is my second blog. The first was called Stuck Inside my head, and had a grand total of five posts. They were about computers vs. the mind, Hera, Batman, Artemis Fowl, and gambling.
Then nobody read my posts and I got fed up and I deleted the blog. But, I still wanted to blog, because I heard it was great—it just felt like a chore and why would anybody want to blog? Nobody even reads blogs, and it’s just another place to be lonely on the Internet.
However, I also spent time making A Timeline of Atomic Theory for my chemistry class, and I actually find formatting a blog and linking and whatnot quite fun. If only it were a viable way to communicate.
In the end, with many long nights with good friends who weren’t afraid to kick me in the pants, I got started. And even though no one really read my blog I kept going. Until I found people to read my blog. And now I guess people are reading my blog and they think it’s worth their time to do so.
So thank you for finding my blog worth reading—I appreciate it.
Onto the tags?
Well, two I would have chosen have already disqualified themselves by tagging me (sorry, ladies) so I’ll just have to find some other people… Here!
