  1. Thank you for the kind words, Randy. I didn’t realize you knew my writing before I came to Associated Content. Since it hasn’t appeared many places I can guess where you found it.

    Thanks, also, for nominated one of my articles in the forums.

  2. Thank you so much Randy! You are very kind. In cyberspace nobody can hear you cry. :-) Does this mean I can get back on the forums?

  3. Thanks Randy. I will have to do something like this on my site, I might have to do a recap of last years winners also. I love this site for keeping everyone updated on AC and for your witty humor.

  4. I feel like I’m with the “in” crowd now. Kind of makes up for recently resigning as a guest editor at another site after trying it out for one day. Ugh! I never want to go through anything like that again. I’d rather write.

  5. Congrats to all the CPS, too. It was really thrilling seeing all those names and the awards. Also, I had no idea that if we landed in the top 1000 we would get a little badge by our name. I thought we’d just get on a list and that would be that. It would still look good on a resume’ but this looks good ALL the time :)
