I love the smell of nepotism in the morning. My sister won an award for her blog and now she has nominated me. I'm honored. Now I'm supposed to nominate 7 of my favorite blogs for an award and also disclose 7 things you might not know about me.
I know I'm not going to win because it just wouldn't look right. But I was wondering, since my sister's blog name is ooglebloops, will the award be called a "Bloopie"?
The requirements of the contest may be a little bit more than I can deal with. Where would I find time to have 7 favorite blogs? I can barely keep up with what seeps out of my head, never mind what's pouring out of other peoples heads. I'm not sure I even know 7 things about myself and if there is anything that people don't know about me it's going to stay that way because I like staying out of jail.
So let's see how many blogs I can list as favorites.
1)http://ooglebloops.wordpress.com/ This one is obvious, it's my sister's and she nominated me so she gets the pole position. This one covers all the fun you can have learning to be a farmer.
2)http://www.artfullyooglebloops.blogspot.com/ This one is also my sister's. This covers what she does in her spare time with just the things she has lying around the house and no money.
3)http://survivalacres.com/wordpress/ This is a great blog that tells you how to survive when civilization comes to an ugly end. Oh shit! It seems as though this blog has come to an ugly end. I just clicked on it and it's not there. Well it was great while it lasted, tons of great info. I'm sorry now that I didn't download it all. Well maybe it's just temporarily down and will return soon...
4)http://thinkorbeeaten.blogspot.com/ Now we start getting into the heavy stuff. This woman's head gushes with righteous, eloquent, politically incorrect essays that I can't keep up with but is worth reading if you have the time.
5) http://thenewagriculture.blogspot.com/ Michael Astera, the author of that brilliant essay "Let the Stupid Grow the Food", 'nuff said.
6)http://smokingmirrors.blogspot.com/ This is probably one of the most popular alternate reality sites in the blogosphere. Heavy, deep and very politically incorrect. One of several blogs that this prolific fellow writes. I don't know how he does it.
7)http://deepintoartlifewest.blogspot.com/ This is perhaps my favorite. Sort of a companion blog to Smoking Mirrors but with very pretty pictures.
Oh my! I actually came up with 7 and I still have one more to list. I'll make this one an alternate in case Survival Acres doesn't come back. http://counterfeitdreams.blogspot.com/ This is not so much a blog as it is a story, a story of one mans life. I could become persona non grata to many people that I have known in the past and some that I still know and consider my friends today, just for posting this link. That would be a shame but this story deserves to be heard. We report, you decide.
As for 7 things you don't know about me you all can take some wild guesses and I will neither confirm nor deny them. I shall remain as I am, an inter dimensional man of mystery, even to myself.
