February Stars

Hello ScoFans!

I've got quite a bit to get through today. I don't know if I'll get through everything, I might cut stuff that seemed like a good idea before but now is not such a good idea, so let's see how we go.

First though, even though I wasn't really going to do the awards thing any more, I do have a couple to get out there. Let's start and end with awards. While I still have everybody's attention, this one came from Meredith at (flash) pasteurized.

That's right. Meredith thinks I'm a gorgeous lady of blogging. I think she really just wanted to see me dressed up in an evening gown again. Who can blame her? I do choose gowns that highlight my awesome legs.

Anyway, I'm not going to lie to you. Ever since this award was first created us guys have been eying it off as you girls selfishly passed it on to one another. We'd even email each other and complain about how it was unfair, and none of us would ever receive it. With that in mind, I am going to pass this award on to..
Next, Nomad made it through to the next round of his competition. Click on his blog above (365 days of People) and get over there and voting this week between Sunday and Wednesday. I'll even make you a deal.. IF he wins, I will do something cool for you, my readers.

I'll put up a poll and let you decide what that cool thing is (vlog, a giveaway, something out of my comfort zone to blog about.. any other ideas you guys list below) to thank you all for voting. He's only just made it the last few weeks, so every one of your votes will be important. Do this for me, and I'll do something for you.

And get your followers to vote as well. Let's see if we can pull off what I think, would be a bit of a shock victory after the way voting has gone the last few weeks (Cheryl is way too popular)

But now for the point of this weeks post..

Foo Fighters have inspired me.

They have inspired me to take a month off writing blogs. I'll still be doing thisisTuesday and Facebook Fail Friday, but that's hardly writing. That's pretty pictures and flashy gimmicks.

But for the next month, I won't be writing anything of any real content. (Well, maybe one thing. I have promised to do a Travel Aboard Thursday at Cheap Therapy. I don't know when it will be. Keep an eye out over there to learn about Australia)

So instead of writing this month, I have chosen some February Stars of my very own. The title is about them anyway. The song not so much. How temporary their stars are will be up to them and up to all of you.

I have chosen five bloggers (I chose 6, one declined) to guest post during the month of February. Five blogs that I have been following for awhile, but don't have the followers I think they should. They're all great, but for some reason they have gone unnoticed. They are hidden gems of the bloggosphere, and it's time I shared these gems with the world.

Guest blogging has bought a lot of people this way. Whether it be the blog for Insomniac Lolita, PinkNic's Planet or Speaking From the Crib, I'm sure that it was drew a lot of you this way, and I think now it's time for me to give some other people the chance to get a bit more recognition for their blogging.

And when I return in March I will hopefully be a bit more motivated, because the last few weeks I haven't really been feeling it.

Besides, you will always be able to turn to Twitter to experience my wit in 146 characters or less. Wit like this..

Thanks to SleepyJane for being the only one who laughed at that last one when it went live. To the rest of you who gave me *crickets*, you don't know what funny is.

I'll leave you today, and for a month, which an example of why it's important to have an OGOM (this is from Facebook messages to each other)

Me to him..

Anyway, thanks to Facebook we can keep in touch (you're not getting rid of me that easily), but if Collingwood beat Essendon this year (unlikely as it may be), expect me to disappear from the Internet for a month or two.

Him to me..

I have not moved yet so may bump into you, if Essendon beats Collingwood the bump might be with my car at high speed.

Oh, and remember to click the link just below the banner to tell me what we should do with the drunken blogger.

Wait, there was that other award.

This one is from PrimA..

Last time I received this award, I didn't really know what to do with it. This time I know I'm supposed to list 10 things that make me happy, so here we go..
  1. Family
  2. My Xbox
  3. Blogging
  4. The fact all my shows will hopefully be back in the next 2 weeks
  5. Fantasizing about actually going on a holiday this year
  6. The sound of rain on the roof
  7. My iTouch
  8. Spending a whole day with a DVD marathon
  9. The soundtracks to Dr Horrible, Commentary and Repo
  10. The thought of Nomad winning his competition
I'll pass this on to anyone who hasn't received the award yet and has left a suggestion for the drunken blogger.

And that concludes our broadcast day...

  4. Your tweets are so good I'm thinking about giving Twitter another go round.

  5. oh so cannot wait for the guestposts.

    btw, i wanted to respond to your twitter, then i got bleeped. should you shoot the nurse or should i? i think you can do the honour in an even better way that i can.

    but i know how lame that excuse is (no matter how true it is) but i thought your tweet was funny cuz the first thing that came to my mind was:

    what's sco gonna do next?

    you dont want to know what mental picture i was having at that time. ahhaha.

  6. Ok, I voted for your buddy and you leave for a month? WTF is that about? I'm pretty new around here so I guess I'm out of the loop.

  9. It is hard to breath because my throat is tightened up with emotion and it’s difficult to type through the tears of love I feel from receiving such a precious award. I will (hic, blowing nose) proudly post it on my blog. I promise to Man Up so you will be proud that you presented it to me. Sigh! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
