Like a Hundred Kisses....

When I started DATERVIEW I was really clueless about how to truly measure my success being that I was a complete blogging virgin and knew no one with experience who could show me the ropes.  At first I was all about getting followers...the more the merrier.  But then my first comment came and I realized how incredible that felt.  Its like having confirmation that people are reading the shit you are writing and care enough to say something about it.  Then I started noticing little blog awards on other, more established blogs and started thinking...god damn it...I want one!!!  What do I need to do to get one of those puppies??

Well, my amazing has actually happened!!!  I have received my FIRST Blog Award from Lis over at An American Girl in Bristol...make sure to stop by and check her out.  So first and foremost I would like to give a huge thank you to her for this.  It means a lot to me and is more satisfying than a hundred kisses (unless perhaps they are coming from Rugrat...more on that in the next post)!!  

Now onto the formalities.....The Award 

1. Explain My Blogging Philosophy, Motivation, and Experience in Five Words.

Wow, five words.  Only five fucking words?!?  Yikes.  ok, how about this....

*Dating is a beautiful disaster!*

2. Award 10 Other Bloggers.

Well, I've been following some really awesome blogs so I'm not sure how to pick just 10...but hopefully I'll be lucky enough to receive more award in the future (hint, hint...wink, wink) and can recognize all the others I may miss!!!

  1. Awkward Sex and the City
  2. Bentobloggy
  3. Boyfriend Challenged
  4. Carrie Bradshaw is Full of Sh*t
  5. Dancing Through DC
  6. Date Me, D.C.!
  7. From the Head of the Danaconda
  8. Girl and Guitar
  9. An International Affair
  10. Oh Honestly, Erin

So there they are folks...Congrats to all!!!!  I hope everyone goes and checks out these blogs...they range from fucking hilarious to creatively delicious and twistedly entertaining to dirty as hell.  So go on and click down the will be the 10 best decisions you make today (aside from stopping here first of course)!!
