So, I think a lot of things are lame. People who make jokes
like this are lame, twins who wear matching outfits are lame, but mostly, awards are lame. People should produce good work for the sake of good work and self-fulfillment. I guess I just really don’t like the artificial incentive and sense of self-importance created by awards. Self-fulfillment > Self-importance. The obvious exceptions to this are childhood spelling bee prodigies, A+ to you, now get a real hobby — and some friends.
This brings me to the blogger awards, a system of awards apparently catered towards people who have too much time on their hands. I’ve seen this going around WP, and unsurprisingly, I think it’s super lame. Like seriously, I am excited when someone reads my blog, why would I nominate myself for an award and then make my beloved readers sign up for an account on something just to inflate my own ego?
Though, if I was way less apathetic, I would entertain the idea of running for Worst Blog of All Time, especially since I am quite interested in being the polar opposite of the blog that is winning for Best Blog of All Time.
Basically, if you see this on someone’s blog, they are taking themselves way too seriously. Real talk.
