TALK TO THE DADDY

Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

The Black Weblog Awards: Put One Down for The Daddy

My site was nominated for a Black Weblog Award!


Listen up. The Daddy is interrupting his vacation to talk to you. DaddyBstrong has been nominated for an award in 4 categories: best culture blog, best writing blog, best new blog, and blog of the year.

The Daddy is asking for your vote. The voting began on June 20th and will end on July 25. So The Daddy is writing this post, because it's getting kind of late.

The Daddy believes that daddyBstrong deserves your vote and here's a few reasons why:

First, The Daddy works hard to write quality posts not only on the current affairs of the day but meaningful posts almost every day.

Second, The Daddy writes the posts in such a way as to elicit and promote responses from you, the reader.

Third, The Daddy has written several educational series. One was on the Kwanzaa holiday throughout the seven Days of Kwanzaa. Another was on poets, especially people's poets like Walt Whitman, June Jordan, Langston Hughes, and Wanda Coleman. He did another on how to handle crises during these stressful times. He even did a series on the financial crisis.
Fourth, you, the reader, consistently write quality responses to each posts. In fact, some of the responses are not from something The Daddy said but to other responders as well.

This not only makes good conversation. It also makes the blog more like a collective blog, a blog of both The Daddy and readers, and not just a personal blog of The Daddy. This is as it should be.

So The Daddy is asking you to go ahead and put one down for daddyBstrong. It would really be a vote for you as well.

To vote, click on the Weblog Award poster and you'll be on your way.

Thanks.

Easiest thing I ever did - voting for the Daddy's GR8 site! Top of my list, it is. Should be at the top of any list.

Vigilante said...

Oops! I forgot to vote it in the "new" category! It's not new to me.

Done. Happily.

MadMike said...

Hey Daddy if you get a chance I am really interested in your thoughts on my commentary from yesterday. I worked hard on it and let my frustration show and I would love your opinion. It is a mad mike commentary that speaks to Lieberman and the health care crisis. If you get a chance.....

MacDaddy said...

MadMike: I'll be right over.

SagaciousHillbilly said...
