Insignificant Awards

Betty posted yesterday about the upcoming Insignificant Awards.

About the awards

The Insignificant Awards is the world's most unheard of blog competition. It's a place for the undiscovered to be discovered.

As the annual weblog popularity competitions begin once more, we at The Insignificant Headquarters wish to praise, encourage and salute the unknown blogs that sit in the unrewarded wilderness. Those blogs that will never be voted for by the masses. Those bloggers who will never be nominated for anything (but should be).

In a fit of shameless self-promotion, I’ve already nominated Infomaniac.

And what blog could be even more insignificant than mine? Tazzy and Piggy Dot Com! So I’ve nominated them too. Although if they win they have to share the prize with me.


  1. Yay! first!

    I'm so insignificant I don't even qualify for an award for it.

  2. I want to be insignificant, too!

    Winning an award for being the most insignificant blog out there is just so ... tongue in cheek.

    Hope you faired well with the weather last night.

  3. Billy: You won't get any bikkies unless you enter.

    Maidy: Power outages all over but Chez Infomaniac has been spared ... so far.

  4. now that i'm here i got nothing. wrapped in a spectacular package, true; but still.
    did you make it through the storm ok? vancouver island was supposed to bear the brunt of it. and thats, you know, in canada. so i wondered. i didnt' see you blow past last night, although i suppose you could be imbedded in the roof. wait; i'll go check....

  5. FN: Those are my ruby slippers sticking out from underneath the house. And now it's sunny!

  6. Sunny, with a spectacular raincloud over a certain Vancouver residence.

    Or is that the fumes from Mr MJ's pipe?

  7. You've got my vote! Well, if you want it.

    I love the context of these in the face of all the mass media saying how insignificant blogging is, we all know it isn't...

  8. Piggy: Il ne fume pas.

    WW: Ta but I don't want to win. I've already won the Elf Shorts. That's enough of a thrill for this blogger. Although the possible prize of a free packet of bikkies IS tempting.

  9. what are bikkies?

  10. Pink: Bikkies are biscuits or what we call "cookies" in Canada and the U.S.

    And biscuits are an entirely different kind of food in the U.S.

  11. Are you going to correct the R in INFOMANIAC ?!
    You totally deserve everything that you get...huh.
    I refuse to gloat over the fact that we Humanitobans are having a nicer Winter than you lot...
    not even a smirk...

  12. HE: Both you and Geoff have alerted me to the spelling mistake. So I, in turn, emailed them with the correction. Do you think it would have helped if I told them it rhymes with 'nymphomaniac?'

    A nicer winter in Winnipeg than Vancouver? Wait 'til mosquito season. We'll see who's smirking then.

  13. Hmmm once the actual word nymphomaniac reaches the male brain the hard drive immediately seizes! All other information is unceremoniously dumped at the speed of sound in order to accomodate as much information, including the whereabouts, of the ever elusive nymphomaniac.

    Short answer NO.
