I'm A Natural

The group at The Zoo Crew nominated me for The Schmooze Award. I am a natural schmoozer, sort of runs in the family. Grampie, mum, Uncle Stormie. I think we can all just sit down with anyone and visit. Plus since I am running for office with Cheysuli, I need to be good at schmoozing.
"As it goes, schmoozing is the natural ability 'to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.' Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship."

Here are the rules: Each award winner is to display the badge on the sidebar of his blog with a link to the post which contains the explanation of the award, then nominate five bloggers to receive the award. Now comes the really hard part. It's not hard at all thinking of bloggers who schmooze, it's finding ones who haven't been nominated yet. Here are my picks(more than 5 kitties, but just 5 blogs!):

The gang at House of Mostly Black Cats - Sanjee, Boni, Mini, Pepi and Gree

The ladies of the Big Piney Woods - Patches, Mittens, Mistrie and Precious

Edsel the Pooch

Diva Kittie and the Fluffies - Sophia, Fiona and Orlando

Bonnie Underfoot and Victor Tabbycat


Plus the LOLCats at I Can Has Cheeseburger made Time Magazine this week! We internet cats are becoming more mainstream!
I keep thinking I has something else to tell you guys, but it hasn't come to me. If and when I amember it I will post on it. Schmooze to you all.

Congrat-ula-shuns on the Schmooze award! It seems well-earned!

We are thinkin of takin some internet class in it to learn how it is done. We talk to The Big Thing a lot, but it isnt exactly the same thing.

I'm glad one of us is good at schmoozing--I'm just not!

I think it's great that we are finally getting out there but there are still people who don't take us seriously. I have a link that I'll be publishing soon to a comment made on copyblogger that bothered me a bit...

Hi Derby! Congrats you schmoozer! We loved your Monday post over here. It was a great quote, and Mom is always drooling over your pictures. She was also drooling over those berries and thought they looked yummy enough to swim in. (By the way, she is completely nuts).
