|Like many awards this year, there are multiple winners: |
Jen of Jen's Voices wins the traditional "Rookie of the Year" Award. She started her blog this year, and is really starting to find blogging voice.
But, I would be remiss if I didn't also give the award to Whiskey Marie of the eponymously named blog Whiskey Marie. Her rookie appearance at the Mac Christmas Party is now LEGENDARY.
|These guys never disappoint. If you are looking for someone to take the comments into the gutter, these two guys will step up and help. |
SkylersDad of Some days it's not worth chewing through the leather straps
Moooooog35 of Mental Poo
(And this is the one award that I am also overqualified to win.)
|This award goes to the one and only God of The Other Side of Normal. |
Dude, sometimes that icon bumps other icons off their apps and takes over like Kanye West.
And it haunts my dreams.
And I think it eats the Jell-O pudding out of the fridge, too. (That's not a euphemism, but it could be.)
|So far, the list of winners has had a distinctly "North American" feel. Blogging pretty much erases boundaries, so what better way to celebrate that then by drawing them back in again? |
Anyway, for his ability to turn a simple commute into a riveting tale, Mo at Mo "Mad Dog" Stoneskin is the SCOPE-TECH International Blogger of the Year.
|Unlike the Grammys, we don't try split hairs with crap like "Album of the Year" vs. "Record of the Year". We have one musical award, and it goes to Cowguy at Sawdust and Cowpies. |
The album is by his band, Keota, and the CD is "Saluté". "Is it any good?" you wonder. I bought a copy for me, and bought a copy for my parents for Christmas.
But seriously, Cowguy, next year I'm looking for "A Very Keota Kristmas"
|While I occasionally dabble in creative blogging, this blogger is full time game on. Whether it's the Blogisferia Chronicles, Original Drafts, Mad Blogs, Literal Sketches, etc. this blogger is always coming up with new and interesting ideas. |
The winner of the SCOPE-TECH Creative Blogger of the Year is Soda and Candy at soda and candy stories
|This year's O.B.A.M.A. award goes to a very good friend of mine. She's no "soccer mom" but she is a "shocker mom." (Her daughter's softball team was call "The Southside Shockers".) A lady who is not afraid to tell you what she wants. On Thursday. |
Sass at Are You Sassified? is definitely deserves the One Bad Ass Mother Award. (Even though she has a really nice ass. I'm just saying.)
|And last but not least, the final award is for the engine that keeps this little machine humming. |
Yes you. Whoever you are. Where ever you are. By reading (and occasionally commenting on) this blog, you helped fuel it, gave it life. And it has given me a greater gift than I could imagine.
So, whether you've been here since the beginning, or just stumbled across me looking for microscope technology, if you've read this far, you are a SUPERSTAR!
Well, that about wraps up the awards for the year. I will be jumping back to the real world soon. Gotta get crackin'! My fiancée will be arriving in about 36 hours and I need to get some work done around the joint.
If I don't talk to you much before then, have a happy and safe-ish New Year's Eve, and all the best to you in 2010.
