2). Perish the Thought (perishthethought.blogdrive.com)

4). Right In a Left World (http://rightinaleftworld.blogspot.com/)

CONGRATULATIONS, YOU WON A THINKING BLOGGER AWARD!

The Blogger’s Halo Award 2006

There are a number of Halo awards on the internet, but I’m suggesting something quite unique here. The “Blogger’s Halo Award” would go to the blogger who has not only created a vital up-to-the minute blog with a sizable readership and dedication to excellence, but this blogger would have gone way beyond the call of duty by demonstrating a selfless commitment to help other bloggers solve their blogging problems.

My nomination for this newly created “Blogger’s Halo Award” goes to Wake Up America.

When I began to express my frustration to other Beta Bloggers about not having trackback capability, Wake Up America’s Spreeezie came to my aid. There was a flurry of e-mails as Spree patiently answered my endless questions and held my hand. Spree sent me HTML codes and gave me explicit directions. But beyond that, Spree actually got my trackbacks going! I owe it all to Spree!

Now we bloggers are a somewhat egotistical lot – thinking that the world needs to hear what we have to say. But, when you discover a blogger out there who is willing to go the extra mile for someone they’ve never met . . . to take time out of their busy day . . to actually do it for you without even wanting to take credit for it – that’s a Blogging Saint.

So Saint Spreeezie, you are the first nominee for the “Blogger’s Halo Award 2006!”

Let’s hear it for Wake Up America! And if there are other Blogging Saints you would like to recognize, leave a comment or trackback here.

Tracked Backed to:
Wake Up America
Dumb Ox News
Rhymes With Right
Freedom Folks

America’s Left in Total Denial

Yesterday after posting America’s Leftist- Marxist Islamic Alliance Fuels Anti-Semitism, I decided to visit other blogs that have written about the same subject. As luck would have it, I came across a few leftie sites and decided to read what they had to say. Well I hit laughter pay dirt. Not only is the left denying that there is a Culture War, or a War on Christmas, or that they are the pawns of Islam – the Islamist’s “useful idiots,” now the left is even denying that they are left! One particular leftie blog had over one hundred comments. I’m not giving them any plugs here or links. I didn’t read all of the comments (who needs that kind of punishment), but one comment sent me rolling off my chair in laughter.

“Barack Obama wouldn’t know a leftist if he tripped over one!”

Well before I head off to celebrate Christmas, I thought I’d give some traction to my poor Beta Blogger blog by using a manual trackback pinger such as Simple Tracks
or Wizbang.

Open Trackbacks, just link to this post!

(What other choice do we poor Beta Bloggers have, unless we want to go through the hoops of trying to “successfully” install Haloscan?)

Note from Beta Blogger Hinterlands: All the trackback pingers (Wizbang, Simpletracks, Trackback wizard etc.) are having big trouble with Haloscan trackbacks today. Getting error 11 </error “Problem saving. Please contact Haloscan”. So if you have any answers as to why this is happening today please leave me a comment or contact me a faultline@yahoo.com

This is my trackback message. I will leave it in a comment on your blog if your blog is listed below:
