I’m always honored to be linked on anyone’s blogroll or in regards to any awards someone decides to pass on to me. I’m also honored when someone dedicates an entire post to my existence. Especially when that someone is as well respected as Ms. Ruth Holladay. I met Ruth this past weekend at Blog Indiana and knew immediately she was a woman to be taken seriously. A long time newspaper woman (37 years) and a local resource of honest opinions about news and politics, Ruth Holladay has a fierce following of, well, mostly old dudes.
Old dudes who don’t like me.
A friend of mine four years ago when people didn’t know what blogs were, would describe this as a tuna fish sandwich blog, in reference to the arcane, defocused, blithering, blathering, inconsequential communique that is useless only to the writer’s friends and those that might be compelled for some reason topically, to care. There’s insufficient gravitas to promote this blog save for its example as bloggorhea and vacuousness for this mid-50′s standard issue male. Blah. If I knew her, I might care because it would be in the context of friendship. But I don’t. And it’s unlikely I will and therefore find only miniscule gravitas.
Oh, really. You’re too kind. (BTW hendy, I don’t love the term “mommyblogger” either so if anyone wants to come up with a better name of what I do I’m open to suggestions. Oh, and bloggorhea? FAIL.)
Wait! There was a follow up comment!
“. . . tuna fish sandwich . . .”
That has been out in the sun too long and has become smelly and moldy and rotten.
“. . . example as bloggorhea and vacuousness . . .”
I even got this in one comment:
“Moosh” doesn’t do it justice.
Too much for this old male fart.
Oh you guys! I’m so flattered you took the time to not like me, with two! frowny faces even. I’m even more honored that Ruth backed me up, that she gave me a seal of approval. Even though she knew her readers wouldn’t take to kindly to my kind of blog.
And thanks old dudes, you gave me a true chuckle.
(Oh, and don’t worry about going over to defend my honor at Ruth’s place. They’re entitled to their opinion. Let’s show ‘em some Mommyblogger class.)
