We interrupt this regularly scheduled broadcast with an annoying beep, which you must imagine.
Here at Confessions of a Tumbleweed, I have given myself the mission of blogging about specific and sometimes facty things about the trucking life.
I try to avoid blogging about blogging or boring you to death by griping or rambling too much about nothing. (I could you know.)
I read a lot of blogs and I love the fact that I get to glimpse into the lives of other people, in other parts of the world with different lives than me.
When I read a newspaper (remember those) the first section I always read is the Lifestyle section. And not just for the comics. I love the human interest pieces that tell a story of a life different than my own or give me perspective on an issue in a new light.
The internet is like one, giant, never-ending Lifestyle section.
Also, I'm really bad a compliments.
So what am I talking about?
Recently, two bloggers that I read, Ladybug and Vinny C, have bestowed on me the compliment of an award.
These two people illustrate the diversity that I love about the blog world:
Ladybug is an artist, naturalist, and philosopher in Washington state. Once she took a chance and knocked on the door of a Goat Chalet House in Canada and found a Swiss chainsaw artist living in a home with 1,000 faces.
Vinny C lives is a journalist in Trinidad & Tobago (yes, I had to look it up) who gets to go to the beach for work, draws the occasional top-heavy stick figure cartoon, and knows more about Japan than is probably healthy.
Each award comes with various and sundry obligations and things and stuff, but because I am:
A: a rebel, and
2: adverse to the feeling of the mass forward/chain mail-ness of it all. (As anyone who has ever e-mailed me one knows.)
I accept these compliments in the spirit in which they are given without following the rules. And I just want to say right here and right now that it means a SUPER lot to me that such cool and diverse people not only read what I write, comment wittily on it, but give me compliments too.
Thank you. For reals.
