Nope, this is not a sour grape rantings. I am much too sweet a person to be sour.
Sometime back, a relatively new blogger pulled a prank and dished out ‘awards’. I dropped a comment to tell him that he got balls. Another relatively new blogger got pissed off, Kah Soon because this other blogger gave the title ‘Most pathetic awards’ to Kah Soon.
Kah Soon retaliated with a very long and angry post. Again, I dropped by Kah Soon’s comment board and told him….right, he got balls. Hahaha, I am running out of compliments, you see. A few other guys were pissed off with Kah Soon’s retaliations and jumped on me why I praised Kah Soon.
So, you see, the mere mention of any awards name will bring out the worst in a person. Even a simple, play-play ones already did that.
But I am sure PPS’s awards will not cause any ugly scenes. Because Kenny Sia rules. Full stop. Kenny is the flavour of the year. Full stop. He wins all categories. Full stop. Ping of the year is that April Fool’s entry. Full stop.
There is a few veteran bloggers who do not ping to PPS and hence, I must say they do not ‘qualify’ like Dr. Liew and Jeff Ooi. But they are the best around the Malaysian blogsphere so far. (See doc and Jeff’s shoes shiny yet or not?)
So, shall we forget about the PPS awards now that we know the winner? Let’s instead write meaningful blogs? I know a lot of people have very good blogs which they do not ping to PPS. I hope they will. Many of them are shining examples in their own categories, students, survivors, humour, inspiration, informative and etc.
As for me, awards or recognition matters very little. What I care is the traffic. To me, more traffics mean more people are sharing some of my ideals. But the most flattering of them is the links. I often check my Technorati to see who links or quoted me/my blog. It is not the glory of numbers but the knowledge that these people are watching and hence, it pushes me to do something nice, something right and something with a purpose.
Today, I would like to share two blogs that are not seen in PPS.
Moving on – FY’s blog has touched me. Instead of the usual dose of melancholy and melodramatic stuffs that most people wrote about being dumped by their bfs or gfs, she moved on. Her bf died of leukemia and in her blog, you can sense her fighting spirit.
Life and death – Vagus is a doctor. It is heart-warming to read some of his thoughts when dealing with patients. (pssstt…SYTs out there, handsome too)
So, at the end of the day, I think it is not the awards that matter but how we touched people with some of our written words. Whether you have made someone smile, laugh, touched, ponder or just plain pissed off, you have made a difference. Having said that, if you guys haven’t nominated me and think you want to try out what WIKI is, please do so. Please nominate my No No to blackground posting. HOHOHOHO!!!!
Please go and nominate for them?
