Woman Honor Thyself Wins The Blogger Halo Award!




Voting ended this morning at midnight 12:00AM (CST). There were 140 votes cast. Only one vote per voter was allowed. Angel of Woman Honor Thyself won with 54.3% of the votes (76 votes). The runner-up was Debbie of Right Truth with 25.7% of the votes (36 votes). Congratulations to Saint Angel and Saint Debbie!!!

I can say without reservation that Saint Angel and Saint Debbie are well-deserving winners. Saint Angel has been a faithful reader (often leaving comments) and she has always given this blogger encouragement . And Saint Debbie offered advice and hands-on help when I needed it this week.

This has been a wonderful experience for me as well as for the many of us who wanted to have a way just to say “Thanks” to those veteran bloggers who have selflessly helped us navigate this crazy blogosphere. In reality everyone is a winner. Every nominee is a winner because they have gone way beyond the call of duty by demonstrating a selfless commitment to help other bloggers solve their blogging problems. Everyone who made the effort to place a fellow blogger in nomination is a winner for just showing gratitude. And everyone who dropped by to vote is a winner because they cared enough to say “Thanks.”

This was a brain-storm-not-even-a-shoe-string effort that suddenly came together when the idea first dawned on me a little over one week ago. We couldn’t have pulled it off if it weren’t for a couple of blogger’s who helped design The Blogger Halo Award Logo. I want to thank Saint Debbie of Right Truth for designing the logo that delightfully captures the sudden joy we all feel when a total stranger extends a helping hand to pull us up through another blogging challenge. I also want to thank Saint Spree of Wake Up America for creating the hot-link code for the logos, and for always being there to patiently answer my endless questions. Saint Spree's constant hands-on help was the inspiration for this award.

To the other nominee Saints that I personally haven’t come to know as well yet, I just want to say that you now know that someone out there cared enough to nominate you and to vote for you because you cared enough to lend a hand when someone was in need.

This experience has taught me so much about the real kindness of humanity - especially of those who reside here in the blogosphere. It’s all about sharing what we’ve learned from others along the way and about building a real sense of community.

This morning I’m looking forward to the 2nd annual Blogger Halo Award. I hope you are too! We’ll have plenty of time for refinements and improvements. If you have suggestions or would just like to help, contact me at faultlineusa@yahoo.com .

  9. Many of my readers from Florida complained about problems with your voting link. Something about hanging chads. Is it too late for a recount?
