Recycling with Crack You Whip

 Recycling is fun. I'm not talking about tin cans, or even al-you-minium, but works. If you do something once, who's to say that it won't pay off to have it done again.

 The specific work I speak of is The Utility of the Headbang piece I wrote a while back. It was kind of funny, but I didn't take uber amounts of time on it or give it any pictures. That usually happens from time to time when I'm inundated with offline responsibilities and tend to them.

 Tracie, from Crack You Whip, was keen on the kind of humour it displayed. I guess she liked my style. I like her style. Irreverent, cheeky, and as funny as they come. She liked the headbanging piece so much that she stated that she should do something of the sort on her blog with pictures. Being the opportunist that I am, I went ahead and told her that would be really cool. Not only would I be collaborating with a fellow blogger for the first time, but would also gain a little more use of the post.

                                  Check out Tracie's version here. You'll be glad you did.

 Since this is the first collaboration I have worked on, I will provide Tracie with the first award I've made.

                                                  RANDOOM PARTICLE AWARD
"Every soul is a particle that depends on another particle"-Me

 Usually people's awards are widgets or buttons with little code under them. I haven't quite figured out how to make those, so I just made a little graphic for now.

 So, here's to you, Tracie, for being the first person to like a randoom article so much that you recycled it for me. The earth will stay in orbit just a little longer thanks to your efforts.

 I will probably do some more collaborations with fellow bloggers, as well as make other awards in the future.

 Until then, have fun!

    1. I am also, every once in a while. What am I saying, I'm terrible everyday, I just have to fight through it to create something cool.

  4. That's pretty cool of her :) I've been tempted to make my own award but I wouldn't be able to design it, or pick people to get it.

    1. If you ever come up with a name for one, let me know. I'll make the graphic and you can choose who to give it to. And do the coding. I heard it's easy, but I'm phobic of coding and have my own tech blog(I'm a hypocrite, I know)

  10. Your award is very cool! It's super easy to add code. Once you google that you'll figure it out in no time! One of the best things about blogging is definitely the networking!

    1. I'm not that good with html. Once, I tried to add some things and totally messed everything up. Since then, I've tread very lightly in html. I'll google it and attempt, but I can't bring myself to pinky swear.

      yes, networking is one of the best benefits. Thanks for your kind words.

  12. 'The Utility of the Headbang' actually had me laughing. Out loud. Haha.

    As terrible and zombie-like as it sounds, this is no word of a lie - I want your brain, damnit!

    And well deserved award for Tracie, she collaborated with you brilliantly.

    1. But if you had my brain, what would I be left with? I guess there's only one way to find out.

      Thanks for the lauds.

  13. It's funny how just adding pictures you can keep someone's attention for longer. Nice collaboration! :)

    1. Very true. Some of my favorite blogs always include pictures. I get so scared of copyright and attribution that I end up not putting any in. Either that or I don't come up with my own. I'll grow to have more, for sure. Creative commons welcomed me with open arms, yesterday.

  14. I like that the quote is attributed to "Me".

    1. Anytime anyone says it and gets asked who said it first, they can always say 'Me', but only we will know it's me.
