I've got the Power !!

Eastcoast, my favorite blogger from Singapore has given me a Schmooze Award...

That Bicep Looks Familiar!!

To converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. That's what it means to schmooze...While I'll admit to schmoozing, I don't schmooze to gain any advantage, to sell anything. Not here anyway.

I do comment on many blogs because something there sparked an interest..I like the social interaction and it's always B.Y.O.B. That's Bring your own bottle, and it's cheaper than chatting over drinks at a local bar with people you hardly know. That's not bad either, but I never won any awards for it.

When I saw Eastcoast's first comment on my blog...a long time ago, I thought, hey I live on the Eastcoast too..but she's on the east coast of The Republic Of Singapore and I'm on the East Coast of the U.S.A. The chances we will ever meet anywhere but on the blog are remote, but without the blog we would never have met at all. For me that's the best thing about blogging.

So I am supposed to link 5 others and bestow on them the Power Of Schmooze award..and I will, but do not feel obligated to do this on your blogs, it's not required, but please feel free to put the power of schmooze badge on your blog if you want too..

Rosetta Rants
, a blog run by the "Translator" finds some pretty odd things around the Internet and shares them with us..he's got some funny stuff there.

Life In The Fast Lane
is another blog I found filled with stories about art, the odd, the unusual, offbeat news, weird sciences, a little business, and yes, even trucking! Check her latest tid bit about a real life Noah's Ark.

Blog-Blond has a blog on my list of blogs I like already but here she assumes the "Blondilicous Teacher Role and shares some real good info...her latest post is about the 5 types of bloggers, find out what category you fall in and check out her post. Take the time to talk back to the teacher, she loves it when the students get fiesty!

Attila the Mom writes some great stuff over at Cheaper than Therapy and she is a powerfully funny schmoozer. Her current post comes straight from the Department Of Duh!

Finally, Rain over at Rainy Day Wonderings is an excellent schmoozer and I love it when that wonderful west coast gal comes by and schmoozes with this simple minded Bostonian.

There are a lot of schmoozers out there and that's not a bad thing...every time you make a comment here your leaving a link to your blogs behind so

Start Schmoozing and visit some of the schmoozers above too!

Wow, Tom! Thanks for the award! I love to schmooze, and schmooze often. So, this schmooze is for you, and keep on schmoozin'!

Congrats on being a schmoozer. I agree with you that if it wasn't for our Blogs we wouldn't have the opportunity to interact with some really neat people.

The "gift of gab" on the web, Tom it has to be your Irish gene at work! Or we could say it's the "here I am you lucky people" attitude! [of course we are lucky!!]
