Tagged as a Schmoozer

July 16, 2007

This evening I was humbly honored by the bloggers at BlueBloggin and received the “Power to Schmooze” award. From their site:

Power of Schmooze Award was created by two bloggers Mike of Things by Mike and Danielle of Pink Review. schmooze_award.gifMany who received this award have already received the “Thinking Blogger Award”

Schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well.

Well, I certainly do post on a lot of blogs.

The idea is similar to the “Thinking Blogger Award”, in that once your tagged you’re supposed to then tag 5 bloggers yourself.  Instead of coming up with 5 bloggers at once, however,  I’ve decided to add to this post as I go.  A ‘work in progress’ if you will.  So here goes…

  • Forest Opine– A very polite blogger who uses the nic mdvp, I’ve seen this Fred Thompson supporter’s nic show up on quite a few sites other than mine.  As an active member of the WordPress Political Blogger Alliance, mdvp isn’t afraid to opine on politics whether the blog is left, right or center.  Kinda like me!
  • Partition Of Iraq – Going by the nic gasdocpol, this blogger has a site dedicated to the 3 state Iraq solution advocated by the likes of presidential candidates Biden and Brownback.  Like me, he is definately NOT a fan of GW Bush and I have seen him engage in debates on a few sites.
  • Psycheout – This blogger is a contributor to one of my favorite sites, Blogs 4 Brownback.  I’ve seen Psycheout’s comments on many political blogs, liberal and conservative.  Insightful and clever.
