I think a quick refresher about this unique award and the rules governing it is in order before I bestow it onto my newly chosen recipients. So use this link, go read up peoples... I'll wait. I may be sleep-deprived but I am patient. Sometimes.
And now, *drum roll*, let the ceremonies begin...
There are two worthy nominees, and as with the preceeding award celebrations this means two winners:
Travis at I Like To Fish
Alex at WHOA-MUMMA!
Travis is a new find, thanks to Alex and a few other bloggers and Alex is a welcome return to the blogging world. Both straight-shooters, tell no crap sorta bloggers.
Hope you both agree to receive this award in the tone it is given.
1.This award is for the straight-shooters. The "tell it to someone who gives a fuck" bloggers who don't let the ignorant minority dictate to them. As a certain commenter from my last post put it (and something a dear friend called me a few years back) the ones who call a spade a fucking shovel!
2.The recipients of the award (and I hesitiate to use the word winners as it is not some type of lame-arsed competition, it is merely a show of appreciation for the blogger who doesn't pretty up the harsh realities) do NOT have to pass it on! If you wish to, great! Means I get to find some new no-bullshit blogs. If not, meh, not my problem.
3.This is not to be passed on to anyone who cannot handle the heat. You know, the bloggers who post one controversial topic, get blasted, and so delete it whilst whining "youse are all bitches" under their breath. If you write it, own it! Note: exception to this rule is if you post something in anger which hurts those you love. Not anonymous, faceless bloggers or followers, but someone you genuinely care for, and realise later when you have calmed that it was not acceptable to blog about. We have all done this at one time or another.
4.This award is not to be awarded for just being nasty! It is for those blunt, honest, sometimes brutal bloggers who post from passion, not spite.
5.Link me! After all I am an attention seeking bitch according to some...
