Our self-awarded Jammie Grammy
May 21, 2009
We have been awarded a coveted “Bella Award” by 0>w/hole>1 . We are…
One of the sites that got the ball rolling for the food and fuel drives in rural Alaska.
Thanks for the recognition – we pajama-clad, anonymous bloggers really appreciate it!!
Along with this honor comes the responsibility of awarding the “Bella Award” to fifteen blogs that we have recently discovered.
Most behind-the-scenes helpers here independently recognized the striking similarity to the chain letter concept. I think we’re all old enough to remember receiving chain letters via snail mail and being faced with the risk of breaking a decades-old chain if we didn’t copy the letter BY HAND, insert a dollar and send it to all our friends.
Our pre-teen attempts to put a dollar in the mail in hopes of receiving a fortune in return has most people of a certain age wary of chain letters and reluctant to pass them along to grownup friends.
The Internet makes these things easier but it still presents a dilemma – do we or don’t we.
After much deliberation we have decided to tempt fate and award our quota of Bellas to the entire community of Alaskan bloggers who brought the situation in rural Alaska to our attention and spurred an outpouring of love and aid from a community of caring souls worldwide! There are too many terrific Alaskan blogs to list but they know who they are and can comfortably accept our “Bella Award” and continue the chain we have dared to tamper with.
Alaska bloggers – please accept this “Bella Award” with our awe, thanks and utmost respect!
