Whining Crybaby

This picture has nothing to do with
today's topic. The Unpaid Interns
just thought it was cool.
     I came to the stark and utter realization yesterday that I am rapidly approaching my 1,000th blog post, which I think it quite an accomplishment for something we all thought would fizzle out about two weeks after it began.  In that light I realized that it has been an excessively long time since I have bitched and moaned about the fact that I have yet to be named a "Blog of Note" by the good folks at Blogger.  So I am going to bitch about that now.
     There are a lot of really, really bad blogs out there, okay?  Now, I am not saying that this is not one of them because 92% of the time it is, but I would like to think that what I lack in quality (which is, again, a lot, I admit) I more than make up for with quantity and dedication.  I write like 28 posts each month, which is more than a lot of the blogs of note have, oh, I don't know, ever.  Let's take a look at some of the more recent additions:

- Please Welcome Your Judges  Okay, this one is pretty good.  Enjoyable, readable, and devoted to pop culture and television.  It is also updated regularly.  I have actually started following it.  Minus points for the giant Blogger logo with "an official Blog of Note" that is staring me in the face every time I go there though.

- Baking My Way Through Germany  The blogger here has actually taken a lot of time and care into her product, and her blog looks fantastic.  It, too is updated regularly and chronicles her journey at becoming a baker in Germany.  So that is cool.  I guess I understand why it is a Blog of Note.

-  My 1-2-3 Cents  This one seems to be about wrestling, like WWE or whatever wrestling.  Not my cup of tea, but again, this is a blog that they are taking the time to keep up and write for.  In fact, Kevin (the writer) is more prolific than I am, which concerns me.  Maybe I am not writing enough.

-  The Tiny Leaf  This one is copyrighted, which is cool, but I am not sure why.  There is only one post available to read, from the day after it became a Blog of Note, and it is respectfully declining, which I guess is fine but which I opine is nuts and a half.  But the writer I am sure has their reasons, and if that is what you want then more power to you, I am not going to hold you back.  But I think it is strange that she gets to be a Blog of Note just on the strength of declining her Blog of Note nomination VIA POETRY!  That is actually really, really, innovative and ballsy.  You know what?  You're cool.  I like your style, lady.

Okay, so what have we learned here in our little tour of Blogs of Note?  Hmmm...not much.  That there are lots of deserving Blogs of Note that are actually Blogs of Note.  That you can be ballsy and they still will nominate you.  Also, that none of those other people seems to be as bitchy as I am.  Maybe that is why I don't get to be a Blog of Note: You know, the incessant whining.  Oh well.  We will keep up the fight until it happens.
