Back at the beginning of the month, I was checking my traffic stats for this here website, and noticed that some folks were showing up here via a link at Suburban Turmoil, a blog written by Lindsay Ferrier, and via another link at Petroville, a blog written by Kimberly (just Kimberly). Intrigued, I followed the stats links back to the aforementioned sites so as to see just why it was they were pointing their readers to my humble abode here on the Internets.
Fearing that I might find the links to my site housed within the body of a piece titled “Blogs That Suck,” I instead made the pleasant and unexpected discovery that a third blogger — who goes by E. Peevie, and whose blog is titled The Green Room — had nominated this post of mine as one of the recipients of a Perfect Post Award for the month of September.
Making this even more of a surprise was the fact that the post for which I received the award is one that I felt, at the time I wrote it, was a total throwaway in terms of its value to others, as I had mostly written it simply to blow off a little steam in an effort to lessen my chances of a massive coronary.
So, 29 days later, let me just say “Thank you” to E. Peevie, Lindsay Ferrier and Kimberly. May your blogs thrive, your servers never crash and your ads produce furious click-throughs.
(Meanwhile, on an unrelated note: This year’s annual Scratches Halloween Production is turning into a total fiasco … and you’ll hear all about it soon.)
