Thank You

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you on behalf of all the Shakes Contributors to everyone who has commented or emailed about our Koufax for Best Group Blog. I’ve received many nice words of congratulations and encouragement, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

I really was absolutely shocked by it. I didn’t think we had a chance, being as comparatively small as we are—I never even emailed friends or family to let them know Shakes had made the finals. To be quite honest, when I saw the link at Memeorandum yesterday that the winners were up, I had clicked through to Wampum and had copied and pasted the entire winners list into a Word document and was going through, formatting it for a post, before I noticed that we’d won. At which point, I thought, “Huh?” and I suspect I’m not the only one who had that reaction, lol.

Now that the surprise has worn off a little, I just feel really touched that so many Shakers and fellow bloggers had faith in us. I continue to be deeply grateful that we have great discussions and lots of fun every day. I am consistently proud of the content, by both the posters and commenters, but the feeling of Shakes is what I enjoy most. Thank you to everyone who stops by and contributes to making Shakes a cool blog.

And my most heartfelt appreciation to Paul the Spud, Tart, Misty, Litbrit, Waveflux, Mr. Furious, Patrick, Thesaurus Rex, Shamanic, Rana, and Mr. Shakes, for sharing this space with me. You guys rock.
