This post was inspired by Chris Elizabeth Griffith, who wrote her own “six pack” of favorite posts and encouraged us all to do the same. I decided to do mine as an award showcase for my previous posts. These are my favorites of the bunch. Since I chose more than six blogs, I am calling this a Party Ball of Posts, although I don’t know if they actually make party balls anymore. In fact, I never purchased a party ball, but they looked like fun. They were supposed to be like mini-kegs, I think. But I digress, so without further ado…
First up, the award for MOST PERVASIVE AND VIRAL POST I HAVE WRITTEN goes to:
The above post has spawned a new secret language on Active Rain. Also, I put it first on my list here because my wife told me that this one really represents my personality the best (i.e. wildly funny and charming….right?).
Next, I would like to present the award for MOST COMMENTED BLOG OF MINE. With 147 comments, this is the clear winner (also the winner for MOST POINTS RECEIVED, with 582):
This next award goes to the POST THAT I HAD THE MOST FUN WRITING WHICH ACTUALLY ALSO MANAGED TO GET FEATURED:
Is this self-explanatory? Maybe not. I guess you should read it to make sure.
One that I will never forget is MY FIRST FEATURED POST EVER:
Believe it or not, an agent in Wisconsin called me today who said that this post rang true for them. You never know how far the ripple spreads when you throw out the pebbles that are our blogs.
Another one that I will likely never forget is THE POST THAT GOT OVER 100 COMMENTS FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY BLOGGING CAREER:
I have been blessed to have had five of my posts reach the century mark, and my “LOL” post above still sits at a lonely 99 comments. Any takers?
I think this next post was THE FUNNIEST POST I HAVE WRITTEN WITH POP CULTURE REFERENCES:
This is about lyrics that I have misunderstood, some for over 20 years. I even solved a lyrical mystery by looking up the words to “KOKOMO” by the Beach Boys. It may help you, too!
The final choices are two posts that give an intimate look into who I really am. These are THE POSTS THAT LET YOU INTO MY LIFE:
Honestly, I am happy I shared these two. I got some of the kindest comments on them that I have yet to receive.
Thanks for joining me on today’s show. Come back next year. I appreciate you coming out. This was sort of like creating a cheesy clip show from one of my favorite sitcoms.
