Because I have No Shame

Because I have no shame, and because I love blog-stuff for my sidebar, I have so gently solicited and humbly received the following nominations:

My site was nominated for Hottest Daddy Blogger!

Not to seem too-self-indulgent, I don't really get the "hot" thing. Not that I am complaining, mind you... especially as I near age (and waist size) 44. That anyone would think of me as hot makes me smile. I love to be complimented. Don't be fooled for a moment by my "Aw shucks" demeanor.

My site was nominated for Best Blog About Stuff!

This makes sense (the award title, not my nomination) My blog, as you see in the header, is about the things I see, and what I think about them. Generally speaking, I just talk about the oddities that sometimes race through my mind. And food. And things that I shoot (trying hard, right now to think of something to shoot today for tomorrow's post)

I have also been double-nominated for another thinking blogger award...

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket both Brillig and Kateastrophe.

Brillig was nice enough to say:

Gunfighter of The View From Here is extremely eloquent. He has a lot to say about race, fatherhood, kindness, and society in general. And, well, he just makes sense. I know he's gotten this nom before, but he definitely deserves it again. He's a daily "MUST READ."

Kateastrophe said:

I am loving his eloquent writing, his well thought out points and that . . . well, he's a GUY in the blogging world. We need some more of those!

Well, thanks ladies. I hope I won't start boring you, when I get wound up, I can get a bit preachy.

AS for the rest of you... go vote.


If I win, I'll post a really great picture of me... like sweating in the gym or something.

Administrative Matters:

The flollowing bloggers are hereby submitted for their own thinking blogger awards:

Afrogeek mom & Dad
Blue Gal
Soccer Mom In Denial
Super Des

GF (Who isn't above a little K street-type lobbying... sans Abramoff sleaze)

Madame M. said...

I voted! :o)

Won't you vote for me too? Peez?

soccer mom in denial said...

Thank you from the bottom of my blogging heart for thinking that I actually produce a thought or two. Coming from you, that is an honor.

So, as a registered lobbyist (seriously - the state human service variety, not K Street), can I still vote for you or do I have to disclose it on some form?

Gunfighter said...


You are not only able to vote, but encouraged to do so.

(and don't sell yourself short)


Kelley said...


I admire you so much, for so many reasons. (I started to type a long comment, but I realize it's futile; it's more than I could articulate in this space.)

Anyway, thanks - for all that you say, and for all that you stand for.

Consider if you will, that my meager one vote will hold little sway, but I'd be tickled if it was the vote that put you over the top. Good luck!

Queen of the Mayhem said...

Congratulations on your nominations!

Just for the record, I mentioned you in my "Thinking Blogger" post!

I enjoy reading your take on're a very talented writer!

I'm off to vote.
