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 was...one 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.
