My prolixity recognised at last

Prolific Blogger AwardYou know, it’s true that if you just crap on about rubbish for long enough, people will eventually start recognising you for it. You’ll become a trusted source of crap. Well, that’s me. The very kind Tony Noland over at Landless has awarded me a Prolific Blogger Award, after getting one himself. See, that’s the other thing that works – surround yourself with like-minded people and whatever it is you’re doing doesn’t seem at all weird. Just look at train spotters or swingers.

The rules of the thing are that you then have to nominate some verbose bastards of your own and pass the award on to them. Seven of them, apparently. By Shiva’s Blue Shaft, do I really have to think of seven prolific bloggers?

Well, here goes. I’m going to pass this award on to people that blog a lot about interesting stuff that I read on a regular basis. I’ll try to get a variety of subject matter in and post them in alphabetical order by blog name:

A Nadder – “a jewish atheist blogs the bible and rants about other stuff.” Michael Fridman discusses all kinds of religious, moral and philosophical ideas. Be warned though, there’s often some pretty confronting images on this blog.

HorrorScope – The Australian Dark Fiction weblog.

Jason Fischer – Of all the writers that blog I chose Jason, partly through completely random selection and partly because he blogs some fucking funny stuff sometimes, like the Knife-Wielding Eagle Of Motivation.

Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist – Fantasy news, reviews, nonsense and giveaways.

Sleep Talkin’ Man – The random mumblings of an Englishman that talks a lot in his sleep. Seriously, this is my new favourite blog.

The Creative Penn – Writing, Publishing Options, Sales and Promotion. Joanna Penn is more than prolific and very informative.

The Furnace – Geek culture from Lord Shaper.

So there you go – I hope you find something interesting and new among those.

  1. Thanks so much Alan 🙂 I am quite flattered to be included alongside these other blogs!

    I just talked about you in my podcast today – as example of dark blog branding 🙂 Speak soon.

  2. Thanks! And I promise when I decided to name my blog I didn’t even think that this would put it on top of pretty much all alphabetical lists 🙂

    Looking forward to checking out the others.

  3. Sure, you never even considered it! Nice side effect though. I’m used to it with a name like Alan Baxter. 🙂

  4. I guess it’s less blatant than Aaatheist Aardvark (and precedes it alphabetically too).

    By the way to everyone else, I don’t actually feature many disturbing pictures — it’s just that my latest post does so the warning’s just because that’s what you’ll see when you click through to the homepage.

  5. Al,

    let me get this straight – you get this award, and you’ve then got to pass it on to 7 other people? They then each pass it on to 7 more etc etc? Looking around the net, here are the official rules:

    1. Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!

    2. Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award.

    3. Every Prolific Blogger must link back to “This Post”, which explains the origins and motivation for the award.

    4. Every Prolific Blogger must visit “This Post” and add his/her name in the Mr. Linky, so that we all can get to know the other winners.

    Face it – its a fecking chain letter, trying to build up a bit of search engine rating for the parent site. And you fell for it. Or am I being cynical?

    PS, you broke rules 3&4. Katu Lata Kulu will take your soul.

  6. See, you’ve answered your own question right there. I didn’t “break” rules three and four – I ignored them. I’ve now taken the links out of your comment too.

    See what I’ve done there?
