Day 243: The Reader Appreciation Award

Just as I was getting the tux back from the environmentally friendly dry cleaner, it looks like it will be getting dirty again at another blogging award ceremony!  I thought nothing could be as exciting receiving the coveted Versatile Blogger Award, but to be awarded a “Reader Appy” is pretty overwhelming.

The Readership Appreciation Award is is a lot like the VBA.  They are both similar to email chain letters that bloggers award to each other AND I won them both so they are possibly the most important, Earth changing awards that have ever existed.  I don’t want to toot my own horn, but TOOT, TOOT, tooooooot, TOOT!

I received the illustrious Appy from blogger Tom Lucas who populates the blog, Read Tom Lucas: Words That Burn.  Tom is a great guy.  He is what people call “a writer.”  He actually writes.  He uses words to paint pictures and evoke emotion.  Damn, he is a cool guy… sharp dresser, tattoos, cool hair (or lack of).  He looks like a guy in a smoke filled bar, inhabited by beatniks with bongo drums.  This makes perfect sense considering Tom’s prolific skills at spoken word open-mic nights.  He is a black beret away from being ironic.  Follow the link above and start combing through his blog- be prepared for EDGY!  And cool.

To follow the Reader Appy rules, I will now bestow the golden trophy on six blogs that I think are worthy of the award.  They are not all vegan, but they are all worth checking out, in my humble opinion.  Please keep in mind- there are tons of great blogs I pop in on from time to time, this is a small sampling of the awesomeness that is out there.

And of course, meet Tom here:

If you get a chance to visit these blogs, leave a comment and tell them congratulations for winning the highly coveted Reader Appy.

I promise, I will not let this level of fame and fortune change me.  I still remember my days as a blogger without two prestigious awards and I will not forget my humble roots.  I still put my pants on one leg at a time like everyone else.  Except cool Tom… he probably somersaults into his faded and ripped jeans with both feet.  Maybe one day I will be capable of such rawness…
