Well, file this in the “Unexpected, Undeserved, but Welcome” file: Writer, blogger, and all around cool guy (and decent fellow) Dylan Cornelius nominated me for something called the Sunshine Blogger Award.
The SBA (no, not the Small Business Adminostration) is, from what I can tell, a way to promote yourself and promote others. It’s a “pass it along,” chain type of thing, but not a scam. In fact, you’ll probably discover some cool blogs!
I’ll get into the rules, but first about Dylan: I discovered his writing back in 2013 or so when I somehow stumbled upon his site Questicle, an entry into the chronogaming thing, where people play and blog about video games (or anything pop culture related, really) in chronological order, tracking their development and so on.
Questicle happened to be about my favorite old system, the NES (yes, I have a soft spot for retrogaming). Dylan wrote short, funny reviews on each game (and he is the KING of funny captions). Through commenting on his site, which I used to read on my phone while holding my then-infant son as he settled in to sleep, I realized Dylan was a cool guy as well as a good writer, and that we had a lot in common.
He is now doing the same thing he did for the NES with Sega systems on his most recent project Sega Does, and also writes about religious and spiritual matters on Dylan In Transition–you should check out both!
And now, the SBA rules, cribbed from Dylan:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Answer the questions given to you
- Nominate at least 3 bloggers
- Write questions for your nominees to answer
I’ll tackle them in order.
1. Thank the person who nominated you. Thanks, Dylan!
2. Answer the questions given to you. These are great questions, and I expected nothing less from Dylan. Here we go! Continue reading “Sunshine Blogger Award”
