Posts Tagged Morning Erection Blog
I’ve been doing a lot of commenting. I’ve been commenting on blogs that I frequently comment on as well as ones I’ve visited for the first time today. Ron Rodgers runs two blogs and he has decided to stop posting on both of those blogs. He asked me just a few hours ago if I would keep an eye on his blogs in case anything unusual happens.
I agreed and he gave me his login information. The problem is that I was commenting on blogs today and it wasn’t until recently I realized I was still logged in as him but commenting as me.
Don’t worry. Stupidity runs in my family! If I left a comment on your blog today as Ron (PrinceConnoisseur), I am sorry. I’ve already cleared my history for the past week so I have no way of remembering all the sites I visited. If you have a comment by Ron and don’t know what the heck it is or are offended by the content of his sites, all I can do is ask for your forgiveness and his as well!
I was just honored by my peers and family. Most likely I got the award because I…
I would most likely get the award for either being a great husband or for my morning erection. I mean this blog of course. I started the blog on a whim to prove to my wife and a few friends that I could. I made it through the first year and I’m still going. I’ve made friends and according to a few emails, some of my posts have really made a difference in some peoples lives. I am happy about that.
Although I may never physically meet the people who frequent my blog (especially those who make themselves known by commenting), I do believe we could be friends in “real life.“ Others of course like the distance and from reading the Blogging Honesty posts might not want to meet me (smile).
I still don’t consider myself a writer but I do enjoy putting my thoughts and ideas out for all to read. If I was honored it would be for this blog. I thought of this question believe it or not because of Stephen Colbert’s Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger installments. For that reason I think this blog would fit into both categories. I think it is one of those things you either love or hate.
I know all of you understand maintaining a posting schedule for your blog takes a lot of work. It takes dedication whether you post everyday, twice a week, once a month or every other day as I try to do. As of today I have amassed two months of finished posts which takes me up until late February. I have also created a few drafts with post ideas which might give me a few weeks more.
Recently I received the Versatile Blogger Award. I was honored to receive the award no doubt. The award itself lost its meaning, its uniqueness when I learned that I had to then pass the award on to at least 15 more bloggers. It seems kind of forced and losses something when mass distributed. Like Seth said, “it loses its effectiveness and value/special-ness if passed on to many bloggers at once.” Along with passing it on to others, you are required to answer questions about yourself or tell things about yourself. It seems more like a punishment than a reward (remember that I still do appreciate receiving this award).
I understand completely that the award gets spread throughout the Internet this way, in addition to the accountability factor. You can’t just give yourself the award! In late November after I posted that I got the award I decided to create my own award. It’s been in the back of my mind for a long time now so I felt it was a great time to start it. I created a new blog in an attempt to distance myself (but not completely) from the stigma that is sometimes associated with the Morning Erection name.
I’ve also enlisted the help of several additional bloggers to serve along with me as the selection committee (see previous post). The award requires only that you stop by the blog and choose the graphic you like best and place it on your blog. Don’t pass it on to anyone and there are not any questions to answer. You can quietly place it in your sidebar or if you choose to do so, create a post about it.
It’s call the First Class Blogger Award. We will pick four blogs per week to give the First Class Blogger Award to and we will keep a running list of all the bloggers who we have given the award to. Every week we will publish the four winners in a blog post on the site.
You can also nominate a site if you feel they are deserving. With all that in mind, I will be dividing my time between the two sites which means less time to dedicate to Morning Erection. Of course that means some changes. I don’t know what all the changes will entail, but I do know after February I will no longer be contributing a poem to Poetic License but there will still be eight poems every month. There will probably be more photos and wallpaper posts because they are fast and easy.
Thanks for understanding and please let me know what you think about the First Class Blogger Award. Also if you would like to nominate a blog, please go to the site and do so.
