“Superior Scribbler Award”

I sure have not been around much, have I? 

I could whine on and on about why that is, and for you regulars here – you can see that the posts I created that did just that (“Stuck in a Rut”) are gone…  I was less than pleased by their outcome, and (frankly) the “funk” I was in only lasted a couple of days – so by continuing to write these posts, I was only dragging myself back down. 

I felt it was counter-productive to blogging, and to achieving a better mood… So (shazam!) the are off into the nether-regions of “The Life of a Father of Five” like so many other unfinished posts…  They are in (as the King of Clubs like to call it) my “…as evening approached…” zone. 

Who knows…  Maybe the next time I am in a funk or a rut, they will pop back into existence (now that they are already written – thus making them much easier to complete, and much quicker to post).. 

They are only a button click away.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, was pleasantly surprised this morning when I found that of my regular blog stops… Eric of OMG I’m a Daddy named me for a blog award he too was selected for. 

superior scribbler award

The “Superior Scribbler Award” originated by The Scholastic Scribe 

  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

First off.. Thank you Eric!  Like I said above, I have been in a bit of a blogging rut lately, and this may be just what I need to help me out!

Secondly (and this is always the hardest part), I am to name five additional blogs that are deserving of this award. 

What I find hard about this is there are quite a few well deserving blogs that I frequent that deserve this award… More than the five I am allowed to name. 

Then, there are the bloggers that do not actually like receiving these awards…  So out of respect, I will refrain from naming them.

As you can see in THIS LINK, you can see there has been some consistancy in my previous naming of “award winning” blogs.  Not that those blogs do not deserve being named in this award (because they do.. and you know who you are), but to “shake things up a bit” – I am going to name 5 blogs that I have not previously named as “award winners” – just to help spread the word on some of these other great blogs!

Daddy’s Fish Bowl – Keith is a prolific writer, and father of two seemingly energetic boys.  I have had a lot of fun meeting Keith and his family through the fish bowl, and we have gotten to know each other a little better through FaceBook too!

Meet Virginia – Much like my wife, Virgina WAS a “Mother of Five”… That was until they had their SIXTH!!  Yikes!  Since Six is not going to happen here, I’ll just have to read about it through her blog!

JDZPhotography – Throwin’ a bone here…  Jeff is a co-worker.  Jeff has a blog… A “photography” blog that truly has very little writing in it.  I keep taunting him to do some WRITING, but he keeps reminding me his blog is about PHOTOGRAPHY.  But since he just finished his third NaBloPoMo (and I have never attempted it), I thought I’d throw him some luv!  Jeff… How about it… How about some WORDS?!?!

Common Mom – Jodie is a down to earth mother of two with a great common sense approach…  She has a connection back here to Minnesota, and I enjoy keeping up with their family exploits!  I have a sneaking suspicion there are going to be some future posts that I will really enjoy (a “tip” I received via email).

Juggling Eric – Eric is a father of four, and only a couple of weeks away from being a father of five… (Sorry Eric… Father of Five is already taken as a blog title, and I am pretty attached to it!! (wink)  More on that in the near future!!)  Looking forward to reading about their fifth, and bringing back some memories of my own!

So there you have it… A list of five (five of my regular reads that I have never previously named for an award)… I hope you find some good stuff there… I know I have.

And for all the other well deserving bloggers out there (i.e. the ones I frequently award, or that do not wish to be awarded – and you all know who you are) – please do not feel too left out – I am quite certain you will find your blogs linked here (or named in future awards) in the not too distant future! 


  1. Yay! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Ha ha. I remember being mother of five. Hopefully I'll say mother of six for a very looooong time. :D

  2. I'm glad that your funk was short lived. Congrats on the award.

  3. Congratulations on your well deserved award!

    And on un-funking!
