I like to think of myself as a "kind" person who's not afraid to say things just because it might leave a bad taste in my mouth...some of my favorite bloggers follow in this same vein...fearlessly speaking their truth(s) because some things just NEED to be said. It's the old, "if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck, it's probably a DUCK!" motto (you can substitute the word "manure" in that analogy, too...sort of). Just tell it like it is...for me...for you. The truth doesn't hurt...lies and false promises do. And if I "offend" you in my tongue wagging, I can offer you this: The world is a big place. Take two steps back, turn the page, surf another site, do whatever you need to do to be happy...I genuinely WANT you to find happiness. The same goes for me...if YOU say something I take offense to, I don't have to READ you. I can change the channel, align myself with those that only support MY ideas, etc.
Well...I certainly couldn't be left out in the creativity process of BLOGGING AWARDS, so I've come up with my own, SPECIAL award for a handful of you fearless bloggers out there! And I'd like to present the "I'm Just Sayin' Smells Like Bullsh*#" award to the following 5 bloggers (because 5 is an easy number to cut and paste!)...who make me smile, laugh, think, and generally speak their wisdom/truths that resonate inside the deep well I call my conscience:
Steve's BJJ Blog (non-MS, non-BS, too!)
Please feel free to pass this "award" on to anyone YOU see fit...there are so many of you, so little time!
