Another blog award

yawnIt's only been a few months since I won the best overseas South African blog and now I've won another.

According to domkop who's 'proudly mocking the most idiotic South African blogs out there', I top his worst blog list by being the most boring of the lot.

Dont let him get to you. I like your blog theres always something to learn. If it was as bad as he says why do you get so much visitors. I were you just ask him to pick a finger and tell him to pee off. People like that just gets to me.

He doesn't get to me at all.

He's as entitled to his opinion as we're entitled to think he's an opinionated wanker.

I'm so jealous, only the true stars get people to spend time writing hatred posts about them...

PS: Can you teach me how to change blog backgrounds?

Just visited that guy's blog and can't quite believe he has disputed being a "hater". What a cock. Perhaps it's a clever post-modern irony that his blog is the most boring piece of shit I've come across in quite some time? But somehow I doubt it.

I enjoy reading your blog - who is this nob?

Are you serious????
Frog is right though, it's the haters who will make you a star overnight!!

coffee addict: life is a roller coaster ride.

blogfrog: So you subscribe to Oscar Wilde's 'The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about'? I can help with your background but must refresh my mind on how it's done. As for one of his criticisms, I do agree about the busy-ness.

ben: I doubt it too.

saddle up: it's 'knob', not 'nob', isn't it? :-)

babs: will you be one of my fans?

I have to echo the Oscar Wilde sentiment, so congratulations!

Congrats Nomad! What an honor indeed. But where is your acceptance speech?

I wish someone would give me an award for being the cheesiest blog around!

Blogger ChittyChittyBangBang! said...

Congrats Nomad... It also means that he reads you blog.
How's that for a contradiction!

did you see the comments left on his blog one of them is mine but im not telling.

Blogger Teddy said...

Well i've just come across your blog and skimmed through some of your posts, maybe im boring too, but i've enjoyed reading them. ;-) Keep it up.

2:15 pm  
Blogger Reluctant Nomad said...

kyknoord, rob, chitty: thank you *bows*

whatalotoffun: I think I have a fair idea of which one it was.

teddy: thanks for popping by, come back again

As for domkop, he has another blog which is a much more personal one about his relationship with God. His most recent post says:

My life is actually making a lot of sense to me lately, thing fall in place, Im happy and people seem to compliment me a lot on what a good friend I am. Pride is an awful thing, we must steer clear of this, remember the cloak of humility? God gives meaning to my life. The relationship I have with him. The race is over, we have one, but the journey is long, and hard sometimes. We must buffet our bodies, prepare, keep fit, for the evil one lurks and prowls like a lion, looking for someone to devour. May God be your strength and protection as he is mine. Peace.

Um, do we detect a dichotomy in action here or what?

I replied to your comment above on, this is what I said:"I agree, 100%. and maybe is maintained by more than one person.But yeah, evenso, I agree, criticism can be done pisitively... hmhmm...".

Your blog is never boring. Another award - cool, lol. I like the videos below. Nice. Take care. CTG

alan - I might have found your site from coffee addict but no it was not Andrea - she's traveling still and well she might be in Canada now actually but I wouldn't be influenced by that. We are expats together, that's what I think...

Blogger Frog with a Blog said...

Well, I can see that his comments have had a positive impact on the layout of your blog. A broader post section does look better and easier to read. Can you teach me how to do that too?

But I mean, of course he sucks.

Blogger Saddle Up said...

Nomad - Always been nob in my world... a knob is something you turn... the other you suck ;)

blogfrog: It has had a positive effect in that sense. I was never pleased with the very narrow main body but a friend said something about some older monitors not being able to read wider text or something or other so I stuck to the width given to me by the blogger template. It looks (and reads) much better as it is now.

After tracking down another blog of his where his sentiments are those of the humble Christian and contrasting them with his domkop blog, he seems to have tried to distance himself from the manner in which he has criticised the blog.

Well, whatever!

I can try my best to teach you how to fiddle with your template, probably best done by email.

saddle up: so you don't like adding k(y) to the nobs you suck? I can't say I blame you!

Blogger Reluctant Nomad said...

Oh no, my detective work has forced domkop to go delete his other blog. What a bad man I am!

11:11 pm  
Blogger Babsbitchin said...

Nomad, he actually deleted it? He was a pretentious piece of work anyway! Well, tell how you did it!
