And the Winner Is…

Last Thursday I asked you guys for your best blog post from the month of February. And you delivered.

In the spirit of the Oscars (which I didn’t watch), here are my favorite five posts from the ones you folks submitted. What were the criteria? I have none:

1) Best romantic comedy: Andi‘s post, “How To Guarantee I Will Not Read your Online Dating Profile,” is hilarious.

2) Best failed post: Bryan. Do you like the saying, “Failure is not an option?” Turns out that’s one great big fat lie. Failure IS an option.

3) Best Oscar recap: Clay. A walk through of the Oscars, minute by minute. Much more entertaining than the real thing.

4) Best Rated R post: Brenda. She takes us behind the scenes of a taboo subject.

5) Best post about trying to change other people: Alise. I’ve become a huge fan of Alise’s blog. This is a poignant look at how we treat the people we love, even when there are differences that threaten to divide us.

Honorable mentions:

Best post built around a made-up word: Euforilla

Best post about watching the Super Bowl…with all girls: Elizabeth

Best post about not meeting a celebrity: Kristie

Best post about the inherent nature of people: Janet

Best-tasting post: 3D

Best appearance by a blogger about to give birth at any moment: Sarah

The bottom line is, if you check these out, I’m sure you’ll find someone new to follow.

  1. Thanks so much Shawn! That was super kind of you to say. I accept this award on behalf of all quick and dirty blog writers who end up needing to edit posts weeks after the fact because they got highlighted somewhere and realized that they left words of of a sentence and didn’t see it for a really. long. time.

    Thank you!

  2. I’d like to thank the Academy, I mean Shawn, for appreciating my painful dating experiences.

    Really, this is awesome. Thanks.

  3. Thanks Shawn! I’m honored. I’d like to take this platform you’ve given me and discuss an issue that affects millions of us every year. I’m talking, of course, about the deceiving poofiness of potato chip bags. You always think you’re getting so many chips, but really it’s just air. I’m looking at you too cereal boxes. Thank you.
