Well, I had a nice surprise yesterday when I received an email informing me that this blog had been included among the 2010 Top 40 Christian Science Blogs award presented by Best Bloggers and PhD Online Programs.
According to the Award website, to qualify for this award, one’s blog “must excel in academics, knowledge, and overall brilliance. As such, the essence of these awards are to highlight the very best blogs on the internet that exude such characteristics.” The award was begun in 2005 by Best Bloggers, “a small group of bloggers who felt that there was not enough being done to recognize those who blog as a passion, not as a job. With all of the bad content on the internet, and with every blog seemingly trying to sell or promote something, those who blogged about their thoughts, feelings, goals, passions, and everything else on their mind were getting pushed to the wayside.
“And so the Best Bloggers was started as a way to recognize the awesome people that just blog about their everyday lives. They do it not looking for any sort of compensation or recognition, but the Best Bloggers feel that everyone deserves something for their efforts.”
Awards candidates are selected via reader nominations. Then the nominees are evaluated and scored by a panel of five judges. Recognition is awarded to the top 1% of blogs.
So, to those of you who nominated the blog, and to the judges, as well, THANK YOU!
And congratulations to the other bloggers on the list, a number of whom I know and read. For the complete list (and links) of this year’s top 40 Christian Science Blogs, click HERE.
