UPDATE!!! PLEASE COMMENT IF YOU RECEIVED THIS!!! I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THIS LITTLE GEM GOES IN BLOGOSPHERE.
Awards sometimes feel like popularity contests or chain mail, don't they? Don't get me wrong, I love getting them, but then I worry the people I send them to are all, "Oh, crap. Another frickin' award that I've got to pass out." That is why, dear friends who have sent me an award I already have, I don't repost it. I don't want to bother people with reading more boring facts about me.
So, I decided to do a little social experiment. As with anything, there is no obligation to comply. I won't sick the blogger police on you. I've created an award where you share fake facts about your followers. The experiment is twofold, as I want to see where it goes, so rule three is to ping back to this post and comment that you received the award.
This is by no means a popularity thing. It was hard to choose five people, but I still love everyone. But from reading the blogs of these followers, I think we share a common vibe of strangeness. That isn't a rule requirement for who they choose, of course. Maybe they choose five people that 'get' the mystery behind public shaving, for example.
1. Choose five followers/commenters that 'get' you
2. Write something fake (preferably not too mean) about them
3. Link to them, and link back to this post to comment your receipt of the award
