Frailty of the Male Ego
Now for reasons that are completely beyond me, I seemed to have been given some sort of award for my blog. I'm not sure what it is all about, but being the insecure male writer that I am, of course I am displaying it prominently on my blog.
My first thought upon receiving it, however, was what's the catch? Isn't it terrible to be so cynical? It does seem to be a rather specialized category, but I'm not knocking it.
The award notification came out of the blue, thus adding to the mysterious nature of it all, but I have to confess, I'm flattered and touched at being recognized, even if it is an obscure category. I didn't even realize people outside of my sphere of friends, family and acquaintances (some of whom have a moral obligation to read my blog), actually read my blog. Thanks, BTW, to all of you for taking the time hear me out. It's much appreciated.
Now, if I could just make some income writing to help support our fabulously opulent lifestyles, life would be good... not that it isn't already.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
