Nominated? What me??

5 years ago

A local paper here in Portland, Maine does an annual Best of Portland poll.  There is a huge awards event held after the votes are tallied and the winners are given placques to hang in a place of honor.  

I was dutifully going through the ballot voting for favorite restaurants, bookstore, art venues, performers, etc.  When I came to the section on blogs I thought, "Oh dear, this is going to be one of those categories where I am not familiar enough with those nominated to vote."

Except I of the blogs listed is MINE!  Spinster Jane was nominated for a Best of Portland award!   I was absolutely taken by surprise.  

I am so thrilled that enough people nominated me that I wound up on the ballot.  This is truly a wonderful surprise.  Now...I'm off to vote for myself.
