It sucks to be me.
I received a very lovely blog award last week but for the life of me I can’t remember who it was from or how to find it now! Extremely frustrating for a person who really tries to keep all events tracked in a spreadsheet or daily diary, but, as hard as I’ve tried, I can’t remember who granted this ‘Oscar-Worthy’ nomination to me for my blog Ramblings of a Writer.
Was it you? You? Maybe you, over there in the corner? Or you, curled up in the rocking chair by the fire?
I’ve searched the comments section in my blog, I’ve searched my email account for anything that remotely looks familiar to me as being from the lovely person that nominated my blog for an award or that has a subject heading of ‘Award”, but couldn’t find anything remotely connected to such a thing, and I’ve scanned numerous blogs that I follow, hoping to stumble upon the one site that mentions receiving an award that has to be passed on to fellow bloggers, but no luck.
Nothing. Nada. Zero, as in Zilch.
I’ve racked my brain for a clue as to where to search next. Nothing. Nada. Zero, as in Zilch.
So it is with a heavy heart that I bring my problem to the daylight, possibly to become the scourge and laughing-stock of bloggers and readers everywhere, but my conscience won’t let me forget about this. After all, I promised the fellow blogger that I would write about the award in a few days–that was maybe on the weekend, as far as my befuddled brain can recall–and I haven’t written about it yet, so the poor person has been waiting for my acceptance speech to appear in his or her inbox (I’m ‘pretty sure’ it was a ‘her’…but not 100% sure so am hedging my bets there), and nothing from me has appeared.
How exactly do I go about accepting an award when I can’t even remember its name or who bestowed it on me?
Very difficult to do, as it turns out. I remember that the blogger had to write a bunch of facts about herself (pretty sure it was a her), and then nominate other blogs for the award–but I don’t remember the exact number: six? seven? fifteen? Not sure.
I remember that there wasn’t a picture of the award on the site (not on my iPad, anyway, which is where I think I was reading my email at the time). I’m sure if there had been a picture then I would have more readily recalled the name of the award. I think it had a longish name…but not too longish…only shortish-longish, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, that’s my confession for today. If you have nominated my blog for an award–or if you would LIKE to nominate my blog for an award, then please contact me again! Leave a comment or drop me an email, and this time I’ll be sure to copy and paste that sucker into the spreadsheet that I’m going to start today to track these things.
Thank you for understanding. And don’t be a stranger.
PS: And don’t forget to check your recent awards to see if you’ve perhaps nominated this sucky blogger lately. Thanks so much.
