Site Awards

Its An Honor Just To Be Nominated

My recent post on the days leading up to our second adoption (One Year Ago This Weekend) was awarded a “Best Moment Award” from www.momentmatters.com.

What does one need to do to win such an award?  Apparently, one must be an embodiment of their mission:

Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.

Bold and noble.  Yep, that’s me alright.  Plus, I get this sweet trophy:

Definitely not an award for modesty

Definitely not an award for modesty

What does this all mean?  I’m not really sure.

  • Do I need to rent a tux, walk the red carpet, and smile politely while Joan and Melissa make catty comments about me?
  • Do I get an actual trophy, or do I print out their jpeg and put it on my mom’s refrigerator?
  • Are the various blogging awards legitimate pieces of well deserved recognition, or are they a variation on a chain letter* and/or  a sneaky way for a site to get page views?  (I’m obviously not referring to this fine award, of course).
  • Can I now refer to myself as an “award-winning writer”?

*According to Award by-laws, I apparently have the right, responsibility, and privilege to bestow this honor on somebody else.  Given that I received this for writing about my second adoption of a beautiful baby boy, it only makes sense that I hereby nominate the wonderful Wonderment, Etc. who has recently posted about their second adoption of a beautiful baby boy.

In all seriousness, I do appreciate that somebody thinks my stuff is award worthy.  I am truly grateful for all of my readers, commenters, and share-ers even if you don’t have a kick-ass trophy graphic that I can put on my blog.
