Reader Mark has honored IMAO with the “Best Blog That Used To Have A Podcast Award” Award.
I’m constantly being asked (and by “constantly”, I mean “never”) “when are you guys gonna start podcasting again?”
To which I reply “never”.
Which usually elicits a plaintive, high-pitched “but WHYYYYYYY?”
For the same reason Awards! are JPG files, not MP3 files – efficiency.
We at IMAO respect and value our readers’ time. The average speech rate on a podcast is 200 words per minute. The average speech rate of a picture is 1000 words per second. This makes posting funny pictures 30,000% more efficient than talking about them, and leaves readers more time to spend admiring the awesomeness of Sarah Palin.
But all this podcast talk is just a distraction from the REAL question:
How come nobody leaves “First!” comments anymore?
To join the exclusive club of blogs who honor IMAO and have your award featured on our sidebar with a link to your blog, make up a fancy award image honoring IMAO, blog about it, and drop a link in the comments.
Keep it PG-13, and if it doesn’t suck too terribly bad, your award will be duly noted in a post (Current estimated wait time – 1 Award post), and placed in the sidebar with a link to your site.
As added incentive for people to honor IMAO with worthless, made-up awards, those who do so may proudly display this worthless, made-up Participant Ribbon:
If you don’t have a blog, then send your image to harvolson-at-gmail.com and include a link to one of your favorite IMAO posts.
For the Photoshop-impaired, here’s a guide to making mediocre fake pictures with Microsoft Paint

IMPORTANT NOTE: Maximum sidebar image width is 190 pixels. Please make sure text is at least barely legible at that size.
Now get honoring!
