The Sopranos of Blogs

The awards keep coming in for Psychosomatic Wit. Like The Sopranos, which garners Emmy after Emmy, this blog picked up two more. Of course, this announcement is all tongue-in-cheek, because there are so many better blogs out there, but still, it is good to be appreciated.

Loz, from Midlife - A Journey, nominated me for two. It means a lot to me for Loz to do this, because he has a great, honest blog so I know that he values blogs that are also in that light.

The first one he has bestowed to me is called "The Schmooze Award". It was established by Mike at Ordinary Folk and Danielle at Pink Reviews who have defined it as -Schmoozing as defined by is the ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” When it comes to blogging, schmoozing is your ticket to making new friends, getting yourself noticed and building a reputation. Some bloggers are gifted with the ability to effectively schmooze and others not so much.

The second award, I am happy to announce is my second "Thinking Blogger Award". Even though it is my second one, it has significant meaning to me because I have been so distracted lately with some setbacks in my life, it is actually harder for me TO think.

Here are the rules of this award meme:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the 'Thinking Blogger Award' with a link to the post that you wrote
(here is an alternative
silver version if gold doesn't fit your blog).

That was that! Please, remember to tag blogs with real merits, i.e. relative content, and above all - blogs that really get you thinking!

Since this is my second one of these, I am going to tag people a little differently. Stay tuned for that. BTW - I am NOT tooting my own horn comparing my blog to "The Sopranos". In the interest of full disclosure, I have never seen even ONE episode of that program.

Well deserved Jeff and I do enjoy visiting and reading what you say as well as appreciating your comments on mine.

Paisley: Yeah, I guess it is inevitable. I will eventually see it.

Loz: Thanks so much. The feeling is mutual.
