Canadian Blog Awards Announced

Thank you.

Thank you all so much.

Yesterday the winners of the Canadian Blog Awards were announced. You will know, because I'd mentioned it a couple of time before when asking you to vote for Rolling Around in My Head, that I'd been nominated in two categories. I was up for Best Personal Blog and for Best Health Blog.

When I received an email alerting me to the fact that the awards had been announced, I raced to the computer and found that I had won first place in both categories. I was really, really pleased. Who doesn't like winning an award?

What made this really important to me is that so many of you would have had to find the energy and take the time to go and vote. Clearly enough of you did this for me to take both categories. I am deeply thankful for that.

You will see, if you scroll through the award announcement that Belinda's "Whatever He Says" won first in the Religion and Spirituality category, Celine's "Running on Carbs" won second in the Sports category and Liz's "Life With Bellymonster" won second in the Humourous category and third in the Family category. All these blogs, from time to time, also write about issues regarding health and disability.

So today, all I want to do is say, 'Thanks!'

'Thanks. It mattered to me.'

Congratulations, Dave.
You and your blog matter to us, too, even those of us who are straight and able-bodied. It's about being human, and being a better human.
Thank you.
