I’ll be the Judge of That

Melbourne-based journalist and internationally-published photographer David McMahon, has named yours truly, ProfBush, the first guest judge for his weekly Aussiejourno's Weekly Blog Awards. The stated purpose of these awards is to, “encourage bloggers from all ‘round the world and…give new bloggers the chance to get their work noticed in an increasingly popular forum, alongside the world's most-visited blogs”. Diet, Cooking, and Exercise has been moving up the ranks of this award and when McMahon asked me to become the first guest judge, I said, “You know what they say, David, about fools rushing in where angels fear to tread. I also feel that I am not qualified, but I have a rule in my life that has served me well. If I am asked to do something that involves, or would require growth and stretching, and I feel fear, I give up the right to say no. So, yes I will do it”.

McMahon, the bestselling author of “Vegemite Vindaloo”, his first novel, said that this is also the first time the award has been judged from the Northern Hemisphere. Submissions close for this week at 12 noon UCT. If you have sites you would like to submit for consideration, please leave the link in a comment to this post.

Here is my recap for yesterday.

I don't cook and I do not wish to learn how to cook. I find cooking to be a science that is beyond my skill range. I praise all of you who serve up tastey meals and beg for a wee bit morsel to savor.

And a wee bit vote for my blog.

Thank you,
