Blogger’s Choice

Someone was kind enough to tell me that someone was kind enough to nominate Banterist for a “Blogger’s Choice Award.” I have no idea where the Blogger’s Choice folks stand in the realm of blog awards, but I suppose it’s nice nonetheless. Thank you to whomever liked it enough to nominate it. It’s good to know there are people who can laugh at stuff that isn’t about farts and semen.
Oddly, it seems that they list the site with an “Adult Content” warning. Are they serious? Who are these people? Tipper Gore?
A quick glance at the leaders in the Humor category seems to suggest this is a doomed effort. The current front-runner by a long margin is a mommy diary blog called “Boobs, Injuries and Dr. Pepper.” Not to disparage her effort – it may very well be funny – but this might suggest that “humor” is far too broad a category.
Anyway, if you’d like to vote for Banterist, by all means do so.

My site was nominated for Best Humor Blog!
