Tansy Rayner Roberts has a post up about awards and award pimping. Hallelujah.
In a tangentially-related post, James Lincoln Warren (it's all about the triple names today, obviously) has a post up about the shadier side of blogging.
Both of which posts touch on reasons I sometimes don't like the blogosphere. Luckily enough, if someone or their blog gives me the irrits, I don't have to continue read. It's a wonderful thing.
