HEY CHECK THIS OUT!!

NO I MEAN IT
CHECK THIS OUT!!

FIRST OF ALL, I'M JUST AN ORDINARY GUY GOING ROUND THE CRAZY WORLD OF BLOGGING, I RUN TWO OTHER SITES APART FROM THIS AND BLOGGING TAKES UP FAR TOO MUCH OF MY TIME!

I'VE MET SOME LOVELY PEOPLE HERE, REAL FRIENDS WHO CARE FOR ME, LOOK AFTER ME, SCOLD ME, LOVE ME, HATE ME JUST LIKE REAL LIFE I NEVER THOUGH THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT THAT IN DOING WHAT I WAS DOING WAS ACTUALLY INSPIRING ANYBODY! NO REALLY!

I DON'T WRITE UNLESS I CAN HELP IT, I FOR THE MOST PART HERE JUST REGURGITATE CRAP FROM OTHER PARTS OF THE WEIRD WIDE WEBBY THING AND ADD SOME OCCASIONALLY WITTY NORTHERN ENGLISH COMMENT PRESS PUBLISH AND THEN THE FUN STARTS. I USED TO THINK THAT IF YOU DIDN'T GET A LOT OF COMMENTS THEN IT WAS A USELESS POST! I USED TO BELIEVE THERE WERE NO LURKERS!

ONCE PEOPLE WERE IN MY COMMENTS BOX THOUGH I TREAT THEM AS VALUED 'CUSTOMERS' TREAT WITH KINDNESS AND RESPECT THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO LEAVE A COMMENT THERE ARE 75 MILLION BLOGSITES IN THE WORLD AND THEY'D CHOSEN MINE TO TAKE THE TIME TO SAY SOMETHING, ANYTHING.

THE PHOTOBLOG IS A NEW SITE THAT FEATURES ONLY MY OWN PHOTOGRAPHY. I JUST SEE THINGS AND TAKE THEM. I LIKE IT, IT'S NICE AND SIMPLE. SEE AN IMAGE PHOTOGRAPH IT PUT IT ON THE COMP IF IT STILL LOOKS GOOD PUBLISH IT.



Are you bored with this yet.....Today I am absolutely delighted to say that I have been awarded not just one Inspirational Blogger Award but two Inspirational Blogger Awards. Let me just claim 'braggers rights' on this. ....not just one Inspirational Blogger Award but two Inspirational Blogger Awards!!!



One for this site and one for the Photoblog!



Number One from Pauline for Wilko News -

"ebezp because he makes me laugh and that helped me to put things in perspective and inspired me to stay."




Number Two from Tina for The Photo Blog -



"Ebezp - for his photo blog which I visit on a daily basis. He is very talented and his photos, especially the nature ones are truly inspiring."


Thank you both, you don't know how happy this has made me. You Girls Rock!I guess now that is over we can all have some champagne can't we!!

As part of being honoured with this award I get to choose 5 people (for each award? - Joke!!) who I believe deserve the award. That's not that easy either - first I have to say that because Pauline's award was first - one of the people that I was going to award the award to was Tina and another person that would normally have received the award from me would be Cathy. Now seeings as both the awards I received have also been given to Cathy, knowing what she's like I doubt she'd see it as a complement to receive three in one day!!

THE FIVE THAT ARE TO RECEIVE THIS AWARD BECAUSE I THINK THEY ARE INSPIRATIONAL AND THEY HAVE BEEN INSPIRATIONAL TO ME ARE : In no particular order,

~d I really don't know where to start, I've learnt so much from her about blogs, the internet, love, life, New Orleans, courage, conviction and not forgetting deleting! ~d has deleted posts that every one of us would be proud of! Including one that said I had a ****ed up image of her! Thanks ~d even that was inspirational as well you know!

Tracey Tracey is single handedly responsible for the transformation of this site in to the three site 'empire' it is now. She was the first of our little band that had a second 'erotic' site and actively encouraged, cajoled and scolded me to start the photoblog. Your encouragement is phenomenal

Autumn Storm A far newer blog friend and inspires from within her comments box and her writing is sensational. She handles a lot of the admin for Team Bravo (take a look at the side bar when you have the time) keeps us all under control and will always deny she's at all inspirational and hopefully this award will remind her just how inspirational she really is!

Jules Jules is a completely different type of inspiration to me. Jules is the one person that when all the world seems to be going off it's head(!) will have a two line post about something totally irelevant, that makes you laugh and make comment and inspires certainly me to carry on! She forgets things so hopefully the award will remind her where to be and when!

Keshi Her writing is absolutely awesome, touching, funny. Her comments back even more so, she's in love with the world and life and wants everyone to be the same and you don't get more inspirational than that!!

Stick around for a while have a chat, have a look around my site and help yourself to champagne, cheese or wine. Make tipsy even more tipsy check out Team Bravo and don't forget go over to the photoblog where at the moment there is some modern art in Paris.

Oh and don't forget the Gutter Press the only site that hasn't got an award!!
