Numero Uno!

It’s Wednesday and it’s time for Friday Fictioneers! Except it’s not because I’m having problems thinking of a story.

Therefore, in a change to our regular Wednesday posting, let’s all put our hands together and applaud me, for I have been awarded the following:

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg

Woohoo wahey wahooie! I’m numero uno! Top dog! Head honcho! Prime, um, rib!

Hang on, wait a second. Other persons also have this award? Am I not the single winner, selected from six billion for my awesomeness?

It would appear not.

I am, however, happy and delighted to receive this award. It comes to me courtesy of Merbear over at Knocked Over by a Feather.

Thanks, Merbear! Here is my acceptance speech. It’s rather long, I’m afraid.

Back when I was a young lad… pop off and have a coffee and pretend I’m still talking – take about 20 minutes for the sake of realism – are you done? good – … and so thank you all, once again! (Pause for applause.)

Here are the rules, for every award needs rules.

1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award
I shall do this at the end of my post.

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.
This is me doing just that!

3. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them – (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)
I’ll let them know in a bit – I’m busy at the moment writing my acceptance post.

4. Come over and say hello to the originator of the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award via this link – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/blog-awards-2/blog-of-the-year-2013-award/
I’m on my way!

5. You can now also join the ‘Blog of the Year’ Award Facebook page – click the link here https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlogoftheYear/ and share your blog posts with an even wider audience.
Ooh, a special Facebook group for the chosen few! Sorry, that wasn’t suppose to sound sarcastic. I’ll head over there in a bit.

6. And as a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog … and start collecting stars…
I’ve already done that, aren’t you paying attention?

Here are my nominations. I’m only doing three as I’m trying to watch Dexter, leading to a splitting of my attention. Please don’t feel obligated to accept, it is up to you!

AliceAtWonderland – I think Alice has already got a couple of nominations for this, but that’s the beauty of it. You can collect those stars around the outside – one for each nomination! In fact, although it looks like I’ve only got the one star, I’ve already clocked mine. I’ve gone round and started again! Honest. Anyway, Alice is not only totally amazeballs, she’s amazeballs with a generous dollop of awesomesauce on the top!

Rarasaur – what can I say about the amazing Rara, except that she deserves every award, follower and commenter that comes her way. And not only that, she wanted an official DraliDoodle for her art page, so she has great taste in quality art :-).

Evil Squirrel – although he beat me at Alice’s Sparkleponies contest (no, I’m not letting that go any time soon), his flashback posts, retro ads, cartoons and ever popular “Saturday Squirrel” feature earn him my vote!

There are many, many others who deserve this award, but like I say I’m trying to watch Dexter and I suspect he’s about to kill again so I’ll sign off there. Congratulations to our lucky winners, and especially to me. Because I won it too.

(Dexter update – he just killed again.)

    I was expecting a drawing though…I know, tough crowd you got here 🙂

      You were correct in expecting a drawing. I actually felt a bit bad about not doing one, but time was marching on and I was already annoyed that a Fictioneers story didn’t pop into my head like it usually does 😦

    I just got my first too, but I’m not doing anything about it until after I finish with this marathon blogging month. Congratulations!!

      You’re nearly there. I admire all you people who managed to keep the momentum up during November!

    Yay, way to go Draliman!!! 😀

    Thank you so much, though I really don’t deserve to be listed with both Alice and Rara! Congrats on being the bestest blog of 2013!


    • November 29, 2013 at 7:14 am

      Of course you do, for don’t forget, you’re now also the bestest blog of 2013!
