Sojourner's Place

i'm demanding a recount!  

Posted by SjP in , , ,

Yes! I'm demanding a recount! I just can't believe that Sojourner's Place was not only nominated but WON the 2009 Black Web Award in the Best Commentator category. Somebody pinch me! I'm over here feeling like Sally Feilds "you like me...you really like me"!

Words can not express how humbled I am with receiving this award. Y'all all know that I'm still pretty new at blogging, having launched my first official post on January 1 of this year. During that time, Sojourner's Place has gone threw a whole lot of looks and directions as I tried to find my voice - or as Villager says - my flow. I so appreciate your patience, continued support and encouragement. Much obliged, y'all! Very Much Obliged!

Special H/T to the Torrence, Raw Dawg Buffalo, for "droppin' the dime", or else I never would have known. I owe you big time!

Please make sure to send a shot of congrats to other 2009 recipients you might know, including:


Barack Obama.com - Most Important Site for Black America & Most Original Site
Black Women in Europe Blog - Best Black European Site
Black Blog Watch - Best Black Blog Directory
You Betta Recognize - Best Education
Raw Dawg Buffalo - Best Business & Political
Black Tennis Pros - Best Site for Athletes

And while the 2009 Black Web Award is truly an honor, it pales by comparison to the award recently received from Villager. Earlier this week, he bestowed on Sojourner's Place the "I Love Your Blog" Award. To be donned by you, Villager, as one of your "favorite blogs in the universe" is truly overwhelming. Cause, if SjP's could be even a tenth of what Electronic Village is, I will have died and gone to blog heaven. This recognition coming from you means more than I can ever express in mere words. You gotta know that you are my hero!

Between the "I Love Your Blog" and "Black Web" Awards, you gotta know that I have to share these blog blessings. So, this week-end I will be handing out some "Emblems of the Helping Hand" as my way of simply saying Much Obliged and Paying it Forward.

P.S. Did Barack kick butt tonight or what? "cool-cool/ super-cool/ real cool" Barack!

Obliged to you for hearing me,
and now old SjP ain't got nothin' more to say...

Congratulations SjP, no recount necessary, your insightful commentary can stand up well against others.

The funny part of this is, I found out that I had been nominated for this award by visiting your site, and I just found out that I won the award by visiting your site. Thank you for keeping me informed about my site, lol!

@ Torrence, actually, it was because of you that I found out that I won. Saw your badge on your site and decided to check out the other winners. So, you see you really did deserve the h/t. Gotta give credit where credit is due! LOL! Congrats to you, too!

Congratulations on your awards -- that is very exciting and well deserved. I have only recently found your blog (you did a product review for my company Chesapeake Bay Gift Baskets earlier this month -- thank you very much!) and I love it -- I try not to miss visiting you at least once a day.
