Wow. Well, fuck me.
I've only gone and awarded myself an award.
On my stumbles around the blogoverse I have noticed these meme style awards cropping up in clusters like some kind of herpes outbreak. They are swapped back and forth within genre circles and are less to do with being awarded for great writing, than for being awarded to people who think you, personally, are great. An important distinction, as no one is going to hand it on to someone who has a widely differing set of values to themselves.
With that in mind, I have decided to create, after a gruelling 10 minutes in Paint Shop Pro, my very own award. I am going to hand it out at random and I don't give a fuck if you hand it on to another 5 bloggers or disregard it entirely. My award is going to recognise truly individual blogs, who offer a unique viewpoint and are not part of the common herd.
Viva La Revolution!
