Blame Brian at The Vault of Horror blog.
When he honored Zombos Closet of Horror with the E for Excellence Award, which is given from one blogger to another in recognition of their undying efforts, it got my little gray cells humming.
Horror bloggers are a unique group of devoted fans and professionals who keep the horror genre, in all its permutations and media outlets, alive and kicking. Often spending long, unpaid hours to keep their blogsites fun and interesting, horror bloggers share their unique mix of personality and knowledge to fans out of passion for a genre difficult to describe, but easy to love.
Horror bloggers hail from all walks of life, but their passionate love for horror movies, terrifying books, scary comics, and unearthly music--you name it--unites them.
I'm proud to be a member of this divers group. In the spirit of the E for Excellence Award, it's time to honor exemplary horror blogs with our own special insignia: one that signifies the heights to which we aspire, and the code of excellence we follow to promote horror in all it's wonderfully frightening forms, from classic to contemporary, from philosophical to schlockical.
I present the League of Tana Tea Drinkers insignia, in recognition of horror bloggers who go the extra line, who toil away the extra midnight hour to present the best in horror blogging. This insignia lets readers know you belong to a select group of bloggers that reach the heights of horrifying excellence, who know what rapture it is to sip Tana Tea by the full moon, and trod the dark passageways beneath the earth in search of the unusual, the terrifying, and the monstrous.
Keep watching the skies, and reading the horror. LOTT-D is coming for you!
