Blog author extraordinaire Yatot of The Yatot Chronicles wins this blog’s Top Commentator Award for March. For his feat – he has won three times in a row since January – I’m also giving Yatot the Hall of Fame Award for blog commenting.
This means Yatot is already out of the running for the top commentator award for the rest of the year. Thus, I have honored a dear friend and at the same time averted a mini-revolt on my hands. Am I not clever or what.
Uber Amazing Blog Award
Aside from winning Absolute Friend by John le Carre, Yatot also takes home the Uber Amazing Blog Award. Let Bingke, who gave me this award, explain what it is all about: “The award is presented to blogs who are “exceedingly amazing” ; blogs that inspire you, make you smile and laugh, give important information, great reads, have terrific designs and just simply awesome.”
Not so fast, Yatot. Other readers – Roy, Dee and Elmot - who gave you a mild scare in this month’s top commentator race will be sharing this award with you.
One important rule in posting this award in your blog is to state the reason why you love blogging. Here are my reasons: It’s only in blogging I get to plumb the clogged depths of my dirty mind, haul out the offending debris, and still be applauded for my feat. It’s only in blogging that I get to rub elbows with like-minded journeymen like you and be the richer for it. Blogging helps me define myself. Blogging also leads me to your doorsteps. And having known you – nothing can take that away from me.
Drama – A new skill brought about by blogging.
The list of the top commentators for March are as follows:
Passionate Blogger Award
Here’s another award I’d like to give to Joji, Bingkee (if you haven’t got this already), Lemuel, Adrian, Petit and Earthlingorgeous: Passionate Blogger Award. This award was given by my good friend Dee who has excellent taste in such things.
The rules say you have to post five things you’re passionate about and to pass it on to five people. Here’s my list:
1. Coffee – because it powers me up and makes me a decent companion.
2. Twitter – because I was a bird in my previous life.
3. Moleskin notebook – because I don’t feel I’m an uber blogger until I get one.
4. Kindle2 – because it’s somewhere out there, taunting me, “Take me, take me.”
5. Laptop – because it’s a must-have toy.
A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award
The sole recipient of Perfect Blend of Friendship Award goes to Fifi. She has recently sliced off a big chunk of her Facebook time to be with us. Thank you for your active participation in this blog, Fifi. By the way, I suspect we have infected her with the blogging virus lately. She has promised to give her Friendster blog a makeover. Way to go, Fifi.
Addendum to Top Commentator Award Rules:
In case the commenting pace picks up here, I’d like to inform you that you’re allowed to post 10 comments per day. Your comments over the 10/day rule will not be counted, but these will be still be published. This is a rule I have happily filched from my friend Jaypee who’s holding the same top commentator contest in his blog. As usual, I will not count off-topic comments although they might still be published. Please write in English so everybody understands what you’re saying.
