Just Jot It January: Day five…

05 Jan


Day five of JJIJ is brought to you in partnership with the lovely Horty Rexach and her blog, It Is What It Is.

Dr Rex, as she is known to her readers, has not only been a faithful supporter of Diary of an Internet Nobody for sometime, but I’m also lucky enough to have become friends with her on Facebook and her irrepressible positivity never fails to brighten my newsfeed.

(She was also very taken with Ho’s Christmas toons at the end of last year, so much so that she reblogged every single one, meaning that Ho actually got more hits on my blog than I did in December!)

And, as if that wasn’t enough, Horty has done me the great honour of nominating me for The Dedicated Blogger Award, the sentiment of which is best expressed by the blogger who nominated Dr Rex herself, Idealistic Rebel


This particular award is refreshingly free of conditions and instructions, but I am choosing to pass it on to some of the writers and artists who made 2015 such a fun year to be part of the blogosphere.
So if your blog appears in the following list, you can be sure that you have informed, entertained or inspired me with your own unique brand of dedication to the blogging cause and I thank you kindly.

Turquoise Moon.

Joeyfully Stated.

Fiction Favorites. (Note the “correct” U.S. spelling of favourites)

Cooking With A Wallflower.


These Vagaries.

Strata Of The Self.

Assorted Thoughts From An Unsorted Mind.

Shanjeniah’s Lovely Chaos.

Zeebra Designs And Destinations.


And finally, an extra special mention to Linda G Hill, for being instrumental in inspiring my dalliance with fiction, via her excellent Stream of Consciousness Saturday feature, (and for giving me the opportunity to inflict a cringe-inducing one liner on the blogging community every week) which I have enjoyed enormously.


Pingback to the very inspiring and dedicated Linda G Hill.

    I did notice the American spelling of Favorites. Thank you so much for the nomination. I will try to be worthy.

      You’re very welcome. I know not everyone “does” awards, so don’t feel compelled, but since I was nominated I thought it wad worth using it to highlight a few of my recent “favorites” and you easily qualify, I’m very pleased to have made your acquaintance John. Long may you entertain us.

    I really appreciate the award. Thanks

    Then I went and had a look at the others you listed. Some good stuff there.

      Excellent. That is essentially the point after all, isn’t it? I have found some great artists and writers over the last three years or so and I’m constantly amazed at how much talent there is out there, just waiting to be discovered. If I can introduce one more person to something new and interesting by passing on one of these awards, that’s job done as far as I’m concerned.
      Yours was one of the first blogs I ever followed and it has been reliably entertaining me, making me laugh out loud (the hilarious DVD reviews being largely responsible for that) and giving me some great metal to listen to ever since, that’s the principal reason I nominated you.
      I hope the other nominees will check out your Assorted Thoughts and discover the same for themselves.

      (And anyone else who is reading this and fancies checking out Big D’s blog in more depth, make a point to search out the bad model making post, it’s still my all time favourite)

    Why, thank you, Dale! I don’t usually respond to awards posts, because they have so many requirements, and I’d rather just be writing…but this is lovely, and made me smile. =)

    I may even pass this one on! =)
