RVA News, my semi-employer is holding its annual Blog Awards. I happen to be up for a few of them. Some thoughts:
-John over at Buttermilk and Molasses (who I think has already anointed himself "Best Blog") has this to say about about the "Best New Blog" category:
"In the category of Best New Blog, there is no doubt. The Checkout Girl is the Shopgirl of 2008 and 2009 combined. As much as I adore Jack Goes Forth, The Checkout Girl is so much more unpredictable and jazzy. And she brings some emotional nuance to her writing. She's erudite."
Ahh, there was a time when I could write about every little thing that happened at work. Unfortunately, now almost every person I work with, a lot of patrons of the bar and way too many girls that I want to bang read this blog, so lets just say that I have to watch my step. Nearly getting sued by Channel 6 was a fun ride. Oh and lets not forget that I got shitcanned from an awesome bartending gig for blogging earlier this year. No disrespect to Check Out Girl, because I think she has a cool blog, but if anyone has been an "unpredictable" blogger this year, it has been me. That being said, my vote is for Jocelyn's Corner. She's a crazy slut and I love her.
- I don't think RVA Foodie got nominated for anything. Somewhere he is distraught and somewhere Jack Goes Forth laughs hysterically. Oh wait, I'm laughing hysterically on my couch as we speak. Not that I think he wasn't deserving... I just... oh never mind.
-TA's consistency should earn him blog of the year. Blogging day in and day out is tough. Blogging day in and day out while still being really entertaining? That's damn near impossible. Good work Jeff.
- Brie and Kelly Stern both rock. I'm willing to bet that they would settle for a tie and a free round of drinks.
Go vote so four lucky people can put a little thing on their blog that says, "Hey, among the 100 or so people who read Richmond blogs, I'm the best. So go suck it other blogs!" Thanks for the nominations but to be frank, I don't really give a crap about winning. My main goal is to blog consistently and compellingly, without getting fired again. Girls come and go, cool jobs do not.
