An Award I Probably Don’t Deserve


I woke up this morning to an award from Dear Kitty, Some blog.  I want to thank this very talented blogger for making the mistake of nominating little old me.  You can find her at this link; , although I don’t know how to process a link on WordPress any more so that you can just click on it.

The maker of this award wrote that these are the rules for it:

For the award, post the picture of it in your post and thank your nominator while linking to them. Tell the blogging world 5 things about yourself and/or your blog. Select 5 nominees, name and link to them. Put their names in a list then hi lite them and go to the top of the editor and see the chain link, click that and paste their homepage URL. Then send a copy of your finished post’s URL to each person in their most recent post and you are all done.

So, five things about my blog;

  1.  I didn’t start it myself.  This blog was set up for me by I-Universe to help me market the book I published with them in 2013, Catch a Falling Star.  Began blogging by following the directions my marketing adviser gave me, and it took me at least a year to discover she was all wrong about her suggestions.  I have made a total of $16 from I-Universe on a book I invested in to get published.  It is, however, still available from I-Universe, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.  My blog is no longer ignored the way it originally was, but my novel still is.
  2. I use my blog to publish the cartoons, artwork, and seriously goofy poetry that I am also guilty of creating.  As an old, retired school teacher, I am quietly going to seed with nothing better to do than this silly blog.  If you would like to see a gallery of my artwork, go to Google and do a picture search of the words “Beyer Paffooney”.  Hopefully the result will not make you insane or blind or both.
  3. Students in my classes often didn’t realize it, but I communicate primarily with humor.  I guess if you don’t laugh at your own joke while telling it, they don’t catch on that it is a joke.  Still, I consider this blog a humor blog.  Yes, even if it doesn’t make you laugh.
  4. Since 2013 I have posted something on this blog 838 times.  I posted every single day in 2015.  8,542 visitors have seen my blog, and no one has prosecuted or incarcerated me for it yet.  I have 790 followers.  I know all this is hard to believe, but I swear that it is true according to the WordPress statistics page.
  5. I continue to blog about my writing and have at least two more novels seriously invested in the pipeline to be published.  You can read about them in my blog.

I will nominate 5 bloggers in the comment section below.

  1. I nominated Carl D’Agostino’s blog, I Know I Made You Smile;

    • Congratulations and appreciate the award. I was a teacher too, history, middle school from 1972 to 1980 then high school from 1981 to 2006 in Miami, Florida, inner city minority. Last decade I was absolutely burnt out and hanging on for that pension. It was never the kids but district mandates, teacher oppression and Mussolini – like administrators. I intend to give your blog a good look see. Perhaps you may care to guest post cartoons on my blog. I have guest posted about 70 artists, poets, cartoonists over the years. Lemme know

  2. I also nominated Kim Floria’s awesome poetry blog Silently Heard Once

  3. I nominated Keith’s highly intelligent blog Musings of an Old Fart

  4. It doesn’t seem too painful so I will pass it on. I will make it my post for Thursday since I’ve been scheduling my post in an effort to post everyday. Thank you very much for thinking of me.

  6. Well done. The honor is richly deserved.
