Thinking Blogger Award
I didn’t even know I thought until I was nominated for this award. Didn’t even know that thinking was something to do. But I’d like to thank my agent, my loving wife, my wonderful children, and my mother. Also my earthly guardian angel Mary Wilkinson (also my childhood sweetheart), and my grandpa Donald who, if it hadn’t been for the stroke, would’ve almost made it here tonight. I’d like to remember my hairdresser. and other inspirational figures from real life. Most of all I’d like to thank God, without Him I might have been passed over and remained unrecognised and would never have received such a wonderful accolade.
Ilker Yoldas started a meme called the Thinking Blogger Award and set it free in the blogosphere. The 5 original nominees each nominated 5 others, and those 25 all nominated five others, which made 125, and they all nominated 5, which made 625, and then 3000, and then 15000, 75000, 400000 . . . well, there’s a lot of thinking bloggers out there.
It’s called link-love. Or website promotion. Or a chain letter. That little 7kb image that is displayed with every award, always linking back to Ilker’s site, means that Ilker can sell advertising space at premium rates.
Think about it.
