What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
Much to my surprise, rebeccadeniston from Taking Up Room nominated Dubsism for the Versatile Blogger Award! While I’m flattered, I distinctly do not remember send her a check. However, at my age, lack of recollection of a particular event has no bearing on it’s reality. For purposes of full disclosure, I’m not above bribery; I’m actually bribery-adjacent.
Having said that, this distinction comes with some duties per Versatile Blogger Code of Conduct:
1) Thank the person who nominated you. While I’m not sure what I did to garner such an accolade, and I’m sure there are bloggers out there far more deserving, nevertheless I am thankful for the nomination and grateful for the recognition.
2) Provide a link to their blog. If you are a fan of classic film, Taking Up Room is simply “must-read” material. If that site isn’t in your bookmarks, your list simply is not complete. Not to mention, in a few days she will be hosting the “Unexpected” Blog-A-Thon. Not only will this be a collection of some fun film reads, but I will also be a participant.
3) Share seven facts about yourself. I’m really not a very interesting guy, so you might want to set your alarm clock for 30 seconds in the future.
4) Nominate 15 bloggers of your choosing.
My nominations…in no particular order…
And there you have it. What makes me appreciate this nomination all the more is the fact that I know combining sports and movies means talking to two audiences which in many ways don’t speak the same language. That means either I’ve succeeded in intersecting those two distinct groups, or I’ve discovered people with as many quirks as I have. Either way, I’m calling it a success because I’ve discovered individuals who create great content and appreciate mine.
P.S. For a possible future nominee, my wife just started a blog called Hot Glue Gun Club, which id dedicated to the world of “do-it-yourself” arts and crafts. I didn’t nominate her blog this time around because as she’s just started, she would be hard-pressed to have 15 other blogs to nominate. But that is no reason for you not to check it out should you share those interests!

We’re a dying breed, brother. I need to get some of these people on my blogroll.
So am I supposed to take this thing and then tell two friends so they tell two friends and they tell two friends and so on?
Do whatever…It’s a bit “chain lettery” but I wanted to show appreciation for the person who nominated me.
Aw, thanks for the lovely award… it is impossible as a film blogger not to accept this award without a mention of Sally Field isnt it.. thanks for the mention with this fab bunch of blogs and bloggers
