But here is where I am going to get super embarrassed and make a confession that will probably keep me from ever receiving any sort of tag from anyone else! *deep breath* Here goes: I am supposed to, upon receiving said award, respond with 6 things I find important and 6 things I do not support and then award 6 other bloggers. But I am not going to do it. I tried and tried and tried to come up with just what I wanted to say here and who I wanted to tag and I just don't feel settled about anything that I come up with. Anyone who knows me is probably thinking "Liss, you're kidding, right? This is a soapbox just WAITING and you are not going to leap upon it and bestow your opinions about values on the blogging world?!?!?!" And, believe me, there is a part of me that would love to, very smugly, jot down all the things I think are important and incredibly misguided. But the only thing I do feel settled about is that anyone reading this blog knows the kinds of things I value and will probably discover more than 6 of them along the way. And as for things I don't support, well, aside from the obvious things like child snatchers and murder, I don't think this is the place that I want to get all controversial in black and white. I could, I'm sure, but I just don't want to.
And then, when I tried to figure out WHO to tag, half the people had already been tagged by someone else and I wasn't sure if it was fair to award when I wasn't fully participating myself. So, here I am, breaking the rules again and just thinking I can do whatever I want to do and everyone will still like me. In spite of my inability to conform here, I really am flattered and appreciative. Please keep coming by everyone, even if it is just to see what I will anti-participate in next!
