I just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Pregnancy Corner "FaveDad2Be" blog award category. I had a ton you pulling for me but we fell just short. Thanks to all of you, we made it a super close race and we finished in second place! Congratulations to the winner Anthony and to Kenny for a fun competition. They both have excellent blogs ( Based on her laughter, I kind of suspect that my wife actually prefers Kenny's blog humour to mine) and they have some excellent posts. Well Done!
I was shocked when I received word that some of you ( particularly BloggerMommies and GrudgeMom) had initially nominated me for this award. I was even more shocked when I made final three. I had only started this blog less than a month ago, so I was definitely behind in site recognition. However, each day seemed to bring more and more visitors and even more hilarious comments. I have stated many times that I have the best commentators and I look forward to seeing what you have to say about my daily hacks.
I appreciate everyone that tweeted, Re-Tweeted, Face-booked my site and spread the word for me. I was shocked to find that one night, upwards of thirty different people had been using their own networks of friends ( and in two languages no less) to try to pull some votes my way. I am amazed by the power of social media and its rapid effect on communication. I was really humbled and thankful for this experience. While I may not have deserved to win, I realized that I truly have the best readers and social media friends in all of the inter-webs! I hope I can return the favor to you one day.
I look forward to posting more things that make me laugh and I hope you all get the odd chuckle also! If you keep reading...I'll keep writing!
