… “I followed these bloggers because they fucked up my shit with one line.”
Damn. There are people up in this joint who can write.
Below are some bloggers I started following recently, all because one line of theirs triggered my “Follow” reflex automatically.
And because I’m weird and I’m new to WordPress, I can do anything I want! [Insert demonic laugh here.]
So, I created my own blog award just to nominate and commend folks for their impressive one-liner superpowers. Because that takes mad skillz.
The First Impressions Award: To be given to folks for their impressive one-liner superpowers. Because that takes mad skillz.
*** Rule ***
Folks below, if you choose to accept the nomination, all I ask is this:
If one line of a fellow blogger whose blog you have never visited before made you stop and gawk at their genius, pass forward this nomination!
That’s the only rule. I know there are usually obscenely time-consuming rules with accepting a nomination, but guess what? I’m not using those this time around; this is my halftime show.
