I won!!! IwonIwonIwon! I won, dudes, I won! I won the 2007 SA Blog awards! Me! I am beyond excited. I can’t believe it; I never win any thing, ever.
I won South African Weblog of the year 2007 as well as Best Writing on a South African blog. I am so stoked, and also so humbled that I won. Now I love my fellow SA bloggers even more.
I have always been very proud of my South African roots, but for a long while I felt a little ostracized by the local community. I felt like they felt I wasn’t South African enough, which was a little unfair. I am as South African as the next (mommy) blogger; I just have a large’ish international readership. But perhaps that was just my (mistaken) perception.
Anyway, water under the bridge. They love me and I ADORE them, adore. Smooches all around. Open mouth. With tongue.
From now on you are going to be hearing A LOT more about South Africa and the cool things we do.
I love my country.
Thanks to Jon Cherry from Cherryflava for putting together a really awesome effort for the 2007 Blog Awards. I know you got a lot of flack from people who weren’t happy with the judging process, but I think they deeply underestimated your integrity and actually owe you an apology. Thanks to you and the rest of the gang for your hard work. And an extra big thanks for PICKING ME!
I WON! I am a WINNA! Thanks to all of you who voted for me. I smaak you stukkend. Open mouth kisses coming your way too.
