Manolo says, our friend Spirit Fingers has appropriately challenged us to identify the former winners of the Oscars.
May all of the Manolo’s internet friends have the most joyful and super fantastic of holidays!
Manolo says, ayyyyy! The Manolo has been busy this week planing his holiday-time escape to the beach in Uruguay, while others have been busier blogging away. For the example, this week, indefatigable Spirit Fingers has put together the puzzler that challenges us to identify the celebrities who are “channeling Marilyn Monroe“.
The Manolo wishes all of his internet friends the Happiest of Happy Thanksgivings.
There is so much for which the Manolo must be thankful, but chief among those things are you, dearest reader, for your generosity of spirit and willingness to indulge the Manolo here at his humble shoe blog have brought immeasurable joy. May your day be filled with family, friends, turkey, and all things super fantastic!
Manolo says, it is hard to believe but, on this very day four years ago the Manolo began his humble shoe blog.
At that time, there were hardly any other fashion blogs on the web, and now, four years later, there are dozens, and scores, and hundreds, and perhaps thousands of the fashion blogs, many of which are devoted entirely, or in part, to those most marvelous of accessories, the shoes.
And the Manolo is so happy to have played his small, tiny part in the development of the blogosphere, and likewise, so proud of his little corner of joyfulness and shoes.
Still, the Manolo is naturally much prouder of the wonderful and talented peoples who have elected to help the Manolo write the various blogs which compose the Manolosphere: Never teh Bride at the Manolo for the Brides and Manolo for the Home, Izzy Gallant at the Manolo for the Men, Spirit Fingers at Ayyyy!, Mr. Henry at the Manolo’s Food Blog, Raincoaster and Glinda at the Teeny Manolo, Plumcake and Francesca at the Manolo for the Big Girl, with Twistie writing on the weekends, and now blogging wonderfully in the Spanish language, Diable, Diablese, and Patri at the Manolo Moda blog.
The Manolo remains convinced that there is no group of bloggers anywhere who are as consistently entertaining, or as wonderfully funny, as these amazing peoples. That they have chosen to share their talent through the medium of the Manolo’s blogs is counted by the Manolo as being among the greatest honors of his life.
Of the course, the greatest of all the meager honors accumulated by the Manolo, are the affection, attention, and generosity of the readers who visit this space, and who, more than anything else, have made this blog the success that it is.
The Manolo cannot possibly repay this debt of kindness, he cannot possibly tell each of his readers how much this has meant to him. All he can do is say to them, and to you, thank you, the thousand times, thank you.
You are indeed most super fantastic!
