Blogging was made for bitching.
Whether it’s about slow drivers, unruly children, or spouses who can’t seem to pick up their own underwear, the blogosphere is constantly atwitter with our gripes. And while we would in no way suggest you stop bitching, once in a while it’s nice to stop and remember some of those people who makes us forget about the dirty underwear.
Out here in Blogaritaville, there are some Ridiculously Awesome People. People who touch us, who make us laugh, who make us want to reward them with a cutesy graphic. Those are the people we add to The RAP Sheet.
This month, my contribution to The RAP Sheet is the absolutely lovely Selma from Selma In The City.
I’m excited to be able to share Selma with you all because, for the most part, we have vastly different readerships. (I know! Can you imagine?!? Someone from outside your usual blogging circle?!?!) Her blog is also very different from mine and a lot of other blogs out there in that she… hold on… writes.
Not like I write. With half-assed sentences and abhorrent grammar. And lots of sentences that start with “and”.
No. Selma actually writes like a grown up. A grown up with a vivid mind and beautiful vocabulary.
But that’s not why I put her on The RAP Sheet. Truth be told, The RAP Sheet was started specifically to look at the person behind the blog – writing be damned. And that’s why Selma is here. Because behind her elaborate imagery is one of those big mushy hearts that makes you miss your favorite aunt.
She would invite you for tea and you would find an excuse to stay all afternoon. She personifies kindness.
And Lord knows the blogosphere could use a little more of that.
What about YOU? Do you know some Ridiculously Awesome People that the Internet should know about? Do you just want to be part of spreading around a little Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy – even if it will take you the rest of the month to think of someone? Contribute to next month’s Rap Sheet!
Email us at email@example.com and we’ll send you everything you need to play along next month. (Including a pretty little graphic. Because whose blog couldn’t use more cool blinky graphics?)
And if you want to play along this month? DO! And you just might find yourself qualified for some snazzy prizes come Sunday…
