***********************Every great once in awhile I will get an email that just surprises the heck out of me -and no, I don't mean the ones where some lawyer from England writes to tell me that I've won the lottery or some such garbage! I mean the ones that make you smile, the ones that come from a friend you might not have heard from in awhile, or the ones that make you feel like maybe, just maybe, you're doing something right.
I got one such email last night from Judd Corizan of The Rising Blogger informing me that I had been awarded the Rising Blogger Post of the Day for my recent post titled Again. Always. and I am just beyond thrilled by this honor.
The Rising Blogger is a fairly new site that awards posts, not blogs, and Judd went on to tell me "You have won this award because we truly feel you deserve it. Great post, good job!" When I went over to The Rising Blogger to read the post that was written about my award I was even more honored by what was said there. Thank you so very much for this honor, it really means a lot!
Speaking of honors, awhile back I was awarded The Thinking Blogger Award by not just Joan of The Erstwhile Librarian but also Akelamalu of Everything and Nothing. I was equally honored that these two ladies felt that I wrote well enough to actually make them think about things and I sincerely apologize for not writing a post about it sooner.
I am flattered and humbled by both of these awards and I thank each and every one of you who take the time out of their day to read what I post here. It means a lot to me to know that what I write is well received. To everyone who leaves a comment, I send out an extra thank you - I really do appreciate every single one of them.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to add these fantastic awards to my massive sidebar that Ed over at The Pisstakers likes to crack on me about!
