Not another awards post from me? I’m an ‘award free’ blog. Don’t you see that ‘award free’ widget over on your widget bar, Hugh? Yes, I do, but this is a call to arms post to all the men out there.
Have you noticed the new ‘Girl Love’ blog award doing the rounds at the moment? It’s a lovely award, but unfortunately us guys are not allowed to be nominated for it. ‘Time for action’ I thought and I’ve created an award which can only be awarded to men that blog.
‘The Men’s Really Hard Hat Award’ is my way of honouring some of the male bloggers who I follow. I’m giving them this brand new award as a thank you and in recognition of all the support they’ve given me. Not only that, but ‘The Men’s Really Hard Hat Award’ is also given to the men who have the most wonderful blogs that keep us entertained.
Here is my list of Male Bloggers who I would like to pass this award onto. It’s in no particular order, so no fighting guys. There is one for each of you.
Chris, at Twenty First Summer. Chris was on the Blogging 101 course of April 2014 I attended. Chris is regular with his posts and his Saturday morning posts cover a whole range of subjects. I’m hoping he’ll write a post about why the number 11 is not pronounced onety one? I just have to have that question answered and he’s the man to do it.
Norm, at Norm 2.0. A guest blogger of mine in November 2015, Norm knows everything there is to know about Photography. His ‘Thursday Doors’ photography challenge is great fun. So far I’ve not got arrested for taking photos of doors. Phew!
Christoph, at Writer Christoph Fischer. Christoph is a published author and all-round nice guy. He recently interviewed me on his blog and came to the conclusion that it was not me that ate all the Welshcakes.
Geoff, at TanGental. Another guest blogger of mine and my fellow male Bloggers’ Bash committee member, Geoff is also a published author and protects me from the female members of the committee. It was his idea about the elf costumes.
Chris, at Chris The Story Reading Ape’s Blog. Promoter and Supporter of authors, writers and bloggers, Chris does an amazing job in what he does. I think he should choose, promote and manage this year’s UK entry for The Eurovision Song Contest. We’d certainly win the contest!
Lord David, at The Buthidars. David is a real Lord and has told me I need to curtsey when I meet him. Another fellow Welshman, it was him that ate all the Welshcakes.
Steve, at Steve Says. Up and coming DJ, Steve never fails in making me laugh with his posts and his outfits. When it comes to music, Steve is the font of all knowledge. Did you know that he managed to get Kylie Minogue to sit on top of his Christmas Tree last month? Go on, ask him about it.
Richard, at Richard Ankers. When it comes to poetry, Richard is king. Some of his work has been published. Richard recently told me that I freaked him out. I thought he was referring to my singing, but thank goodness it was one of my short stories that had done the deed.
Ronovan, at Ronovan Writes. When it comes to Blogging, Ronovan is King. He taught me everything I know about blogging, so you can all blame him. He also taught me how to keep my sock drawer tidy. Thanks for that, Ronovan.
Eric, at Eric’s Blog. Eric recently wrote in one of his posts that he was my biggest fan. Well, I’ve got news for you, Eric. You’re not my biggest fan! Nope, it’s someone else who is my biggest fan and you’ll have to scroll down to the bottom of this post to find out who it is. However, you can still be my biggest ‘male’ fan.
Nick Verron, at Nick Verron. Nick is a hero of mine. He’s an incredible guy and one which many of us get inspiration from. I’ve told him I’ll gladly launder his Super-hero’s outfit, but there’s no guarantee he’ll get it back.
Andrew, at Have Bag, Will Travel. Andrew’s been just about everywhere. His trips are often packed with humour and events that will have you in tears of laughter. Every time I see a new post from him I can’t help but think about the incident he had with an inflatable in a lift. Ask him about it. I know he’ll love to share the story with you.
John, at Fiction Favorites. John’s ‘Fifty-Two Views Of The Gulf’ series is like watching a silent movie. However, it always ends on a cliff-hanger and leaves me on the edge of my seat. That’s so cruel, John! However, I love what you write and where you live.
For the gentleman who have been nominated for this brand new award there is only one thing I ask you do. You don’t need to accept the award or display it on your blog. You don’t need to write a post about it or nominate other male bloggers. You don’t even have to say ‘thank you’ to me for the award. No. All I ask you do is to do something nice for your wife, husband, partner or a member of your family today. Tell them you have been given an award and then go and do the washing up, take them shopping, fix that shelf or leaky tap they’ve been going on about, cook them a meal or simply just tell them that you love them. We don’t do enough of that.
If you want to pass the award on then please do, but there’s absolutely no obligation to do so.
Congratulations to all of you.
P.S – If you’d like to be in with a chance to meet my biggest fan (click here to read her story) please leave me a comment telling me how many pairs of socks you think I got for Christmas.
