I gave a lot of thought to this post, a whole 24 hours of cogitating. It occurred to me that this might be a way of making the concept of autism a little less ……..hmm, how can I put it…..unpopular, more mainstream, shed a little light in the darkness perhaps? Let’s face it, autism may not be the most gripping subject for the majority of people.
Andy 29 also known as “Angela” over at “Memoirs of a Chaotic Mommy” has very kindly nominated my blog for a number of awards, quite alarming! But I’m none the less grateful. Thank you so much.
You may or not be familiar with this site and it’s nominations, but believe me, it’s not for the faint hearted. You have to register, and then whizz off into middle earth never to see the light of day again. Quite nightmarish and I speak from personal experience here.
My first brilliant idea was to nip on over and vote for myself 7 and a half million times for each category, to guarantee success but quickly discovered that this isn’t possible = rats!
Looking at the options, my techy husband says he needs to vote strategically. Why does that phrase sound so familiar? Maybe because we’re Independents without affiliations, or should that be mavericks?
Best of all time! In my dreams maybe dearie.
Stuff? Maybe, that largely what I write about, I think…..just stuff.
Health seems like a bit of a long shot, unless we’re talking about mental health, mine not theirs.
Blogitzer? Can’t even spell it!
If you click on any of the buttons, it whizzes you right there.
So what do you think? Is it possible that Jo Blow or the ‘man’ on the Clapham Omnibus would be the least bit interested? If it is possible, is it also desirable? Will I merely attract a truckload of trolls? Is this a wise course of action?
So I’ll leave it here a while until I become thoroughly embarrassed but I’d be grateful for your opinion as to the possibilities of this shameless self promotion.
In the meantime I need to visit someone with a sticky post so that I can find out how to keep it stuck. Ooo the trial of bloggy skills and steep learning curves.
Lastly, in the alternative maybe we could come up with the right collective noun for trolls, both English and American, or possibly universal? All suggestions welcome.
Here are a few that we came up with:-
A Nightmare of trolls
A Haunting of trolls
An Anonymity of trolls
A Tirade of trolls
and my personal favourite, ‘A Menace of Trolls.’
