I am a proud member of this little blogging group called, The Cotillion. Since most people don’t even know what a Weblog Award (see post title) is, unless they are part of the blogging sub-culture, they definitley have no clue about The Cotillion. The Cotillion was started by a few blogging ladies that thought it would be fun to band like-minded bloggers together to join blogging forces and create friendships. I never joined a sorrority (glad I didn’t) during college, but this is something so much better. A group of women (I think 50 now) who were each screened (or at least Googled) by the other members to see if they were worthy of being Cotillion material. You must be invited into this secret society and the answer is, yes, we are plotting world blogging domination with our tiaras propped up straight, pounding on our keyboards while balancing a margarita glass.
We have some centrists, but most of us lean to the right in the political spectrum. We all love our Country, even the couple of sisters who somehow were born to the Northern US step-child.. We support the military 100% & we ain’t just talking about bumper stickers on our car (that would soooo not be Cotillion cool anyway). We chat on-line, share news tips, bitch about what we want to bitch about & are kind of like that Vegas commercial – “What happens in The Cotillion, stays in The Cotillion!
NOBODY should be surprised how many of us made it to the finalists in the Weblog Awards this year. I tip my tiara to all the gals that made it and to those who didn’t that are equally deserving!
