an honor to be nominated

I found out something yesterday that put a smile on my face, but in telling you about it, I want to be certain you don't get the wrong idea.

Every now and then I check my blog's statistics, and one of my favorite things to see is where my readers have come from -- meaning, from which sites they've come, not where they come from geographically, although that's also pretty neat (Hey, Poland! Israel! Nigeria! Sarasota!). A significant percentage visit from Courtney's Links To Look Forward To page . . . in fact, any time Courtney links to me, my page visits at least double ("1200 page loads at 7:45 a.m.? What the...oh."). Today I noticed that many had been coming from MormonMomma.com, specifically the page of Nominations for Best LDS Female Solo Blogger of 2010.

Here's where I don't want you to get the wrong idea: this is not a plea, nor a beg, nor even an ask for you to vote. I don't even think you can vote yet, it might still be just nominating time. I just wanted to share this with you because, well, it's about my blog, and I want to thank you for reading, you know? Also, I don't think I've been nominated for a Blog Prize before. So there's that.

I mean it when I say I'm flattered to be included in that list of bloggers.

I'd vote for Kacy.

Word to your stats! Wish mine were bigger. Sometimes I wonder if I'm wasting my time blogging, but it's so refreshing to get out my thoughts and ideas. XoxO
