thanks to you..

You may remember that back in October I told y'all that I had been nominated for the "Best Teen Blog 2011" award (and others) at the 7th annual HSBA Post blog awards. I was pretty excited to have been nominated, because even that is something! I never, ever expected to "win" anything..I mean, c'mon. There were so many other amazing blogs in the running!


Yesterday, I found out that..

*drum roll*

..Thanks to you, my lovely friends, followers, and encouragers, Umbrella Girl has indeed won the "Best Teen Blog" 2011 award.


Woah. I totally could not believe my eyes when I headed over to the announcement post and saw my name there!

Especially since...every single blog nominated  deserved to be the winner. I'm serious. Because you know, in blogging, even if an award says "winner!" ..that doesn't make me "the absolute best teen blog" out there, or any of the other blogs who won awards "the best at ___". I really don't think there is such thing as a "best" blog--everyone is unique and lovely in their own special way, and thus their blog will be unique and lovely in its own special way.

..Nevertheless, I'm pretty dang excited. ^^ ;) :D :D The prizes look pretty cool. ;) So, once again, thank you so very much for your votes--it means a ton to me. :) I am certain it was close between myself and the other blogs.

Have a blessed Tuesday, friends! I have a giveaway for you tomorrow, so stay tuned. :)
