Time to Celebrate!

And the accolades keep coming for this little ghetto kitteh! If I wasn't so stunning, I'd find it overwhelming! 

First I found out I was a finalist in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Social Media Pet Blogging Awards in the Best Twitter Design category for a background that Glogirly designed for me and today I received an unexpected accolade from the AAAC. They're the organization who hands out the Anipal Academy Awards. They were honoring Graphic Artists, which is something this kitteh doesn't pretend to be. I logged on Twitter  to cheer on my furrends because I had no expectations that I would win anything. I looked at my connections and mentions, like I always do to see if any of my homeys wanted to hang. OMC! Everyone was sending concatulations to yours truly for winning an award for—wait for this!—Blog Whiz! I was doing a happy dance, not to mention some cat wheels, cos I never expected to win. It was just the opposite from last year when I was jobbed. I won't get into that here cos I'm too happy. CK pledges to live up to the title of Blog Whiz, while continuing to spin tunes to get everyone's paws on the Nipclub dance floor every Thursday from 8-9 pm.

Sorry, Blogpaws, I don't mean to slight being a finalist; but I really appreciate someone recognizing a blog I work so hard on. I know we're just a small fish in the blogging world and my little blog doesn't appeal to everyone, which of course, puzzles me. Design, graphics and creativity doesn't come easy to me. It usually takes a couple of hours to write a blog that's funny and has substance and combine it with a graphic that isn't just uploaded from the flashy box. To that end, we really appreciate seeing those blogs that are creatively designed. In fact, I may even be in awe of talented anipals like Katie and her girl.

Thank you AAAC, @TheNascarKitty, @TinyPearlCat and the entire @AnipalAwards committee. You guys know a star when you see one! Thank you to Blogpaws for sponsoring the Awards' ceremony. 

Concats to ALL the talented Anipal Academy Award winners! 

I may be too excited to do easy this Sunday. Lemme tryzzzzz

Stay tuned next week for our first Senile Saturday when Pop discusses the pros and cons of his AARP phone.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Concats, CK my darling little creamy gray beauty! Yes, your posts *are* always substantial and entertaining and beautifully illustrated. Your bling picture today is the perfect combination of insouciance with just the right dash of smug, MOL!

But of course my favorite photo is the last one. I could just tiptoe right into the beddy and curl up next to you. Then we could purr together for hours and hours.
XOXOXO

Carolyn said...

Congrats indeed, though not so up on Twitter, keep forgetting about it - don't really understand it to be honest! You are no longer lowly, you are in the upper echelons, which means Some of us have some serious sucking up to do :D

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Concatulations CK! It is well deserved!! I have always loved your blog and think you are a great writer (and have told you so numerous times)

I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND about not "being a graphic design whiz", about it "taking hours" to do a blog post, about not just uploading from the flashy box...(I don't have photoshop) and when I first started blogging i had no clue how to even upload a photo. My photos aren't great but I joined sites to try and make them better.

NONE of our blogs appeal to everyone...it is all subjective..."one man's garbage is another man's treasure"...

We are also a "small fish in the blogging world" it is what it is....anyone who blogs can relate to the time, effort, dedication, etc that goes into blog posts such as book reviews etc.

Everyone wants to be recognized but not everyone can be, the important thing is to think about why you started blogging to begin with, your love of CATS...if you receive acknowledgement along the way great...if not...it's all subjective. Enjoy your award!!!!!

Mariodacat said...

Congratulations CK - you certainly deserve both awards. You do have a fun blog and I know you work very hard at making it so. Your diligence has paid off.

Marg said...

The Island Cats said...
