They like me, they really like me?

I have the distinct and unparallelled honor of being nominated in this week's contest -- Best DC Blog by Best DC Writer -- on Best DC Blog.

Personally, I think they've mistaken my good grammar for good writing.

At any rate, I am sure that I cannot compete against Velvet and ArJewTino, who are two of the best writers out in blogland. (Actually -- to the extent that I've read them -- the other nominees seem pretty gosh darn good, too.) So, it's an honor just to be in the same category as these fine folks.

Congrats! But no one has nominated me (sob, sob).

Like I said, I have no idea why. I don't even really know any of the people that are commenting on the threads.

Arjewtino said...

Dara, please, I'll be voting for you.

Dara said...

Arjewtino: Thanks.

I've been observing the process today -- you know, reading the comments there -- and I think it's kinda weird. It seems like it's mostly written by one person with various identities. And it has some sort-of free-for-all make-up-the-rules-as-you-go-along kinda tendencies, which makes me (and my OCD) very very uncomfortable.

The weirdest thing? How could any of them know anything about this blog -- you know, to be able to vote -- if no one is clicking the link? Very peculiar.

But, whatever. It is what it is, and I'm just happy that someone out there thinks my writing is good enough to nominate. External validation is nice.
