(insert pithy rejoinder here)


My fellow Blogglanders,

I’d like to take a moment to step outside of the humor box and use my blog post today as an opportunity to spread awareness for a cause I truly believe in.

There comes a time in the lives of all bloggers when we find a need to step back and reflect on our journey through the virtual utopia that is Blogworld. Some of us have come here to broaden our horizons and to find inspiration within the photo or travel blogs that pepper the Freshly Pressed page. Many of us find comfort and community amongst the animal lover or mommy blogs of WordPress. Still others use their blog to extract humor from the banality of the workday life and to share their plight with the blog world around them.

But once in a great while there comes a blogger who stands out among the rest- a blogger who effortlessly straddles the line between tragedy and comedy. A blogger who bucks convention with his often times controversial opinions on the validity of religion or the sanctity of marriage or the awesomeness of Star Trek. A blogger who challenges the status quo, strives to enlighten both men and women alike, and who boldly laughs in the face of clowns.

It is this singular blogger who I believe can deliver us all into an era of change and lead us down a path of righteousness and light. That is why I, Hellis of Bloggerland, am asking its citizens for their support and their vote for EDWARD HOTSPUR as champion of the BLOGGER IDOL contest.

“Amongst the weeds of the world, a flower grows…”

  5. Goddess Hellissandra Cassiopoeia, you are truly an angel sent from somewhere to do something, and instead of doing whatever that is, you’re helping me out. That’s why you will always be my favorite. Some others come close, but thanks to restraining orders, not too close. You are truly awesome.

    September 26, 2012 at 8:35 pm

    • Oohh Hellissandra Cassiopoeia! I like that name. You are some kind of awesome yourself, there EH.

    sites? I have a blog centered on the same ideas
    you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know

  14. Can I just say what a comfort to uncover an individual who truly knows what they’re discussing on the web.
    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More and more people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you definitely have
    the gift.
