Fellow birder and blogger [email protected] was kind and thoughtful enough to nominate Bill of the Birds for a Blogger's Choice Award. I'm so flattered, I'm flummoxed!
In case you get a wild hair and feel like voting for BOTB, or any other worthy blog (see nominations for [email protected]'s blog and Zick's, too) you can do so by clicking on the banner above or by leading yourself astray here. You must log in as a member of Blogger's Choice to vote, but, trust me, it's painless.
I DO NOT believe in buying votes--this is America after all, where all elections are free and fair. (But if you DO vote for me I will come and fill your bird feeders every day for a year).
Of course I don't expect to win in the Best Hobby Blog category (the leader currently has 471 votes and I have but 2, one of which in mine, the other, [email protected]'s!), but I've already got the participation ribbon--a smart looking banner button (see above) to stick on the BOTB navigation column (already there thanks to Katherine K. our Wonderful Wizardress of the Web).
Nonetheless, I am preparing my acceptance speech for the November awards ceremony PostieCon in Las Vegas. My speech starts out like this....
"I was born altricial on a cold March night in an Iowa cornfield..."
