I Will Not Seek Nomination And If Nominated I Shall Not Run!

Oh sure. Who am I kidding? I'm incredibly touched and deeply grateful that Brigit at the lustful literate nominated "Client Nine And A Half" for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. For some reason I can't seem to make the link to her work, but you can find her in my blog list. She is such a wonderful writer, courageous communicator, and all around fabulous on-line presence that I was literally floored (really, picking myself up now...) that she threw my battered hat into such an impressive ring of bloggers. This nomination comes with requirements and, OMG, rules! So here they are:

1. Display the award logo on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award's requirements.

Jeez, I only get to say 7 things about myself? Oh goes:

7 Things About Moi:
1. I sometimes verbigerate as a method of self-soothing. The words I use are incomprehensible.
2. I have an awful sweet tooth.
3. I sometimes worry that I'll never meet Mistress Right.
4. I sometimes worry that I will meet Mistress Right.
5. I try to be careful what I wish for.
6. I wish for only the best of things.
7. I eat the same thing practically everyday for breakfast; Bare Naked Fruit and Nut Granola and Ronnybrook Maple Vanilla Yogurt.

Actually, I'm a bit fatootsed that I can't figure out whether I do this upon nomination or upon actually receiving the award. Oh who cares. I get to nominate 15 amazing and wonderful bloggers so details be damned!

And The Nominations Are:

1. Aarkeybabble - My friend and fellow traveler, his blog is hilarious, sexy, personal, and truthful.
2. Her Majesty's Plaything - We joke that we were separated at birth or are brothers from a different mother.
3. Pieces of Margo - A no holds barred look at her life, Margo is raw, scathing, vulnerable, and true.
4. Troy Orleans - Sexy, down-to-earth, word rich, insights on the life and times of a fab pro-domme and true friend.
5. Femdom Resource - Every day, rain or shine, paltego gives us image and comment, upon wonderful image and comment.
6. Unspeakable Axe - Our very own kinky Charlie Rose, Axe not only has the best kink podcast in the world, the iconic Masocast, but he blogs about the scene, life, and true love with his wonderful wife Sade.
7. Sadist Next Door - My BFF Crimson writes equal parts dirty sexy fun, political critique, and insights on the sex industry. Not to be missed.
8. Freedom Through Discipline - Veronica is funny, in your face smart, and the coolest girl in the world.
9. Whether You Like It Or Not - Alex's menacingly erotic expansive intellect is only surpassed by her recent fetish for rampant exhibitionism as evidenced by scorchingly hot photo shoots. The ultimate subbie guy's crush girl.
10. Dumb Domme - Ms. DD has the most imaginatively humorous and touchingly romantic blog on the internet.
11. Thoughts of a Submissive Cuck Hubby - junior writes the best blog on the internet about the deeply intimate and erotically humiliating fetish of cuckolding.
12. The Edge of Vanilla - Tom Allen on real life chastity. Irreverent and wise.
13. Fetish Furniture Factory - Vanessa Chaland promotes great looking fetish furniture but also writes the most realistically erotic posts about cuckolding. She makes me want her every time I see her name. The best tease.
14. Mistress Wynter - Knee weakening lustful pictures and the most scathing rants from a dirty girl domme who makes my insides quiver like yellow jello.
15. Domme Chronicles - Ferns is the heart and soul of the on-line kink community. Blog, comments, FetLife. You name it she is there sharing her unique and wonderful perspective on this life of ours.

I'm sure I've left out many, but I'm amazed that I'm real time pals with nine of the fifteen wonderful writers. Who says we don't get out from behind our hard drives? Thanks again for nominating me Brigit! This was a blast.


Her Majesty's Plaything said...

Hey Advo:

Thanks so much for the nomination my friend! I have a feeling our lists of nominated blogs would be pretty similar. Mine would of course start with the fabulous "Client Nine and a Half!" All of the other blogs you mentioned are also quite wonderful and I love your descriptions of all of them! I too am confused on the point of whether to go through the process before or after receiving the award. Not sure about the rules and technicalities but surely in this case being nominated is as good as winning the award. Unless I missed the part about the fabulous prizes...

The more I look the more I'm beginning to believe that the "nomination" is the award. I've found loads of blogs from right wing rants to writing about cows that "won" the award by nomination. I think the idea is you can't nominate yourself, though why not. Even Bush got to vote for himself...

Also, in some incarnations of the award you only have to link to seven blogs and not say anything about yourself.

Who cares really, the fun is in the process. While some may shun the badge award thing, I'm a total whore for it. So thanks to the lovely Brigit I get to post the award icon on my blog site.

Have a great time in the sun. Watch, you'll come back and not only be reading your award winning erotica but you'll get amazing and wonderful prizes for writing a Very Inspiring Blog!!

Ha! You're not the only one who appreciates a little attention and blog whoring! I'm a total attention whore!

Thanks for the nomination -- it's fantastic to be amongst such great company, and there are a few blogs on here I haven't heard about, but I'm really eager to check out!

Thanks again, Advo!

*slinks away... whoring, whoring..."

Kudos on your nomination, and thank you for nominating me in turn. I'm honored by it, and grateful to have your support and our friendship.

DD -

I am thrilled you dropped by. Not only am I an award whore, but I am a craven comment slut. You are very welcome and please don't be a stranger!

advochasty said...

Aarkey -

Thanks! And you are very welcome for the nomination. It was your blog that substantially helped to forever change my outlook on connecting with fellow kinksters. I am eternally grateful. Be well my friend.

I think it's more about community than anything - calling each other out for doing something worthwhile - letting each other know that we appreciate the writing...and the comments...and the conversation. Besides, I've come across so many new and wonderful blogs by reading other blogger's nomination lists.

Anyhow, I'm glad you're an attention whore. So am I. So from one whore to another - stay easy and keep writing - I need something to good to read when I'm sitting naked on the couch.

Vanessa Chaland said...

Thank you. :)

Brigit -

Thanks again for the nomination and for dropping by. Yes, I totally agree it's about community. It really felt nice nominating so many great blogger/writers and friends.

And I'd like to award you the Client Nine Very Inspiring Comment Award. The thought of you lying naked on the couch reading, let alone reading me, is all the inspiration I need to keep writing!

You are very welcome! :-P

I know this is an old post but still, has a serious amount of very interesting and free female domination stuff.
