Before I get to today's post, I would just like to say that I had a Sunday Google-age mostly ready to go yesterday and would have posted it, if New Boy hadn't distracted me. Not that I minded the distraction, of course. I'm just sayin's all: Not. My. Fault.
Now that that's out of the way, on to the more important things. Tense Teacher has presented me with the "Nice Matters" award:
“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people and good blog friends - those who bring good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded, please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award.”
To which I say: Huh?
It's funny - I've realized for a while now that I somehow got this reputation for being a (gasp!) Nice Person in the blogosphere. I'm not sure how you all were so easily fooled, but from what I hear, I was repeatedly deemed "sweet" when my name came up in conversations at Blogher. Somehow, the fact that I often like to leave supportive comments for folks going through tough times has been construed as niceness. Or the fact that I've occasionally written posts about how wonderful my friends are. Or the fact that I sometimes send emails checking in with other bloggers to make sure all is well with them. Or the fact that I sent greeting cards with Lady M for a number of bloggers at Blogher.
Okay, maybe I'm a little nice. But only sometimes. And I'm still snarky sometimes, too. (Right, Ali?)
Well, thank you, Tense. You're sweet to think of me, and in case you doubted it, you well deserve this particular award.
And now, in no particular order, I'd like to introduce you to seven of the nicest bloggers you'll ever read:

Congrats, you Belles of the Blogosphere! I heart you all THIS much.
