Rolling Around In My Head has the honour to have won three blog awards. Surprisingly we came second as Best Blog in Canada, first as Best Personal Blog and first as Best Health Blog. I am pleased to note that Belinda at Whatever He Says came in second for Best Religion and Philosophy Blog, Shannon took silver in both best Family Blog and best Blog Post for her work on Half Soled Boots and Mike took silver as well for Shoot First in the Arts category. And of course, Lene, took the gold in best Chronic Illness Blog.
I know many of you voted for all of us in the awards and I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for you folks taking the time to vote. It means a lot that you bothered to vote for Rolling Around In My Head. I am proud of the blog and proud of the level of discussion that the posts generate. I wanted to have a blog that lead to a community that was supportive but also challenged me when I needed to be challenged.
It's weird to admit but these awards meant a lot to me and I wanted to win an award or two. It seemed to be a bit of validation for the work that goes into maintaining a daily blog. I shouldn't have needed more than the comments and the emails that the blog generates ... but there you have it, I'm shallow.
I'll be back tomorrow with a regular post ...
right now I just wanted to say, Thanks.
