200: This Bling's for You!

"Diverting the internal traffic between the Writer as Angel of Light and the Writer as Hustler is the scribbling child in a grown-up body, wondering if anyone is listening."
~Herbert Gold, Elder Statesman of The Beat Generation~

We've been thinking about this for a Good Long While. Got into this Scribbling Janx at the Age of 14, when Dear Old Dad suggested that his Disgruntled and Highly Attitudiness 9th-grader sign up for the High School Journalism Program.
"Why would I wanna do that?" The Naif asked The Father Figure.

"Well, math's not your strong suit. You spend all your time in your room, scribbling. You might as well make something out of it!"

Truer words were never spoken; at least not to This Little Scribe. And guess what? Fate, as it were, Had Its Awkward Way With Her.

The Little Scribe went thru the High School Journalism Program. If it weren't for Julia Jeffress, High School Newspaper Adviser Extraordinaire, we don't know what would have become of this greenhorn. She scribbled her way thru high school, right into the lap of the Missouri School of Journalism--the "Harvard," if you will, of Ink-Stained Wretches Everywhere.

But She Didn't Stop There. The Little Scribe scribbled her way into an internship with a New York Magazine; she scribbled her way onto not one, but the staffs of 2--count 'em!--Major Metropolitan Daily Newspapers. But she didn't stop there.

The Little Scribe worked in politics, & did a little bit of that Lobbying Janx, the Stuff That DC Folks Do, which earns enough money, but doesn't seem to Sit Right with The Public. She worked as a SAHM, a school & church & Girl Scouts volunteer, & pitched in with the neighborhood advisory group.

Then, she landed The Hardest--and The Best--job of all, besides the one that involved raising Ella Numera Una & Ella Numera Dos up to Legal Age, as prosperous, educated, productive young adults--We Hope! She became a High School Journalism Teacher.

Before long, The Little Scribe had scribbled her way into the Blogosphere. Where She Remains Today. Doing a little bit of this, a tiny bit of that. And a Whole Lotta Scribbling.

We've been participating in this Jacked Up Blogging Janx for 6 months now. This is our 200th Post. To Commemorate, Celebrate, & Generally Share the Bloggy Love, we've Created an Award. Yes, The Superior Scribbler Award is a Scholastic Scribe Original! We'd like to pass it along to 5 Extremely Deserving Scribblers. And we hope they pass it along, in turn. "Etcetera, Etcetera, Etcetera," as Yul Brynner would say...

Of course, as with every Bloggy Award, there are A Few Rules. They are, forthwith:
  • Each Superior Scribbler must in turn pass The Award on to 5 most-deserving Bloggy Friends.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must link to the author & the name of the blog from whom he/she has received The Award.
  • Each Superior Scribbler must display The Award on his/her blog, and link to This Post, which explains The Award.
  • Each Blogger who wins The Superior Scribbler Award must visit this post and add his/her name to the Mr. Linky List. That way, we'll be able to keep up-to-date on everyone who receives This Prestigious Honor!
  • Each Superior Scribbler must post these rules on his/her blog.

Now that we've Dispatched with the Formalities, cue the drumroll, please. The First 5 Recipients of The Scholastic Scribe's Superior Scribbler Award are:

  • Tara R. We know that If Mom Says OK, everything's gonna be all right. Her place informs, entertains, & sometimes Tears at Your Heartstrings. And Tara's Deep. Really Deep.
  • Lynda. She's such a Sweet & Honest Scribbler! We love her heart, which is a Big as Our Native Texas! Lynda's Personal Story will rip your Heart from its Moorings. And her random posts, about Puffins & Donuts, are a stitch!
  • Veggie Mom. She's walking that Delicate Tightrope between Personal & Public. She helps promote her BIL's Fun Company, while making sure everyone knows that Her Family Comes First. There's absolutely No Other Blog like hers Out There. And who ever heard of Goats Grazing on a Roof before she wrote about them? Here's to being One-of-a-Kind!
  • Bilbo. We just discoverd this quirky blogger, who always has something to say, however random. He's a Talented & Earnest Scibbler, in a cryptic kind of way. Check out I Didn't Watch the Debate. Sue me.
  • Bellringers. Richie is a High School Journalism Teacher, too. We'd love to duplicate her sense of humor, but for now, we'll just settle for reading her whimsical, seemingly randomly strung-together, downright highLARious soliloquies. Plus, as an Added Bonus, Richie actually graduated from Our Humble High School. The One Where We Teach. She graduated, natch, Back in the Day. And, she was on the Newspaper Staff that we advise today. Seriously! We've got a Yearbook to prove it! Look. It. Up.

There you go, Ladies & Gent! Wear it Loud & Proud. You deserve it! And, if you're a recipient of the Superior Scribbler Award, please sign Mr. Linky, below!!

What a terrific idea Melissa B! What's even more amazing is that we connected recently through a blog hop and I just saw my blogger blog gravatar on your sidebar GFC friends. I will presume the award came from you as it appeared as a link on my current WP post... Small world. Great things. :-)

We compared four types of values, those concerning religiosity, attitudes towards issues of sexual liberalization such as homosexuality, abortion and divorce, attitudes towards gender equality, and democratic values. Factors analysis was used to construct value scales, all standardized to 100-points.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

You may want to assess short-term goals and revise them accordingly so that you are more likely to succeed.
