You Like Me! You Really Like Me!!

By Brian | November 28, 2008 | Share on Facebook

My friend and colleague, Ilya Burlak of Burlaki on the Thames has conferred upon me the “I Love This Blog” award:

His rather flattering nomination reads as follows:

Brian at I Should Be Sleeping is a man of many interests and a great wit, with a curious and critical eye and a disposition for distilling complex issues into easy to understand concepts. His serious fare is moving and insightful and his lighter stuff is tongue-in-cheek hilarious. I know him in person, too, and he is a great guy to share company with.

Right back atcha’, Ilya. I really appreciate the kind words.

Anyway, with awards come responsibilities. In this case, these:

  1. Post the award on my blog.
  2. Link to the person who gave me the award.
  3. Nominate at least 4 others.
  4. Leave a comment on their blogs so they can pass it on.

#1 – check. #2 – check. #3:

I hasten to note that two of the blogs I read most often – Burlaki on the Thames and Simple Tricks & Nonsense are not on the above list because they either nominated me, or nominated each other. It strikes me as silly to turn this into a circular, mutual admiration society. That said, they are two excellent blogs, and if you’re looking for something great to read on a regular basis, you can do much worse than to check those guys out.

As for #4 – I agree with Ilya, that’s kinda stupid. A comment on their blogs would, by definition, be unrelated to whatever entry I commented on. So, I’ll just count on one of them (Jeff) reading about this here, and hope the other three check their ping-backs. If not, another accolade goes by the boards. So sad…

    My RSS feed is broken? First I’m hearing about it, and um, it works here. Try resubscribing?

    I’m not on my home machine right now, but when I tried to resubscribe, I got an error message. When I’m back at home, I’ll send you an e-mail…

    An airball estimate on when it broke would also be greatly appreciated.
