After spending days locked in my room throwing an all-out tantrum for not winning the Foggy Award for Personality of the Year, I thought it would be the adult thing to do to be gracious in defeat.
So here goes my attempt at humility…
First off, I’d like to thank The Foggy Awards. It was an honor to be nominated but more importantly I thank you for bringing more awareness to celiac disease.
(How am I doing so far??)
Next, I’d like to offer my congratulations to the Gluten Free Girl for her victory. When I was first diagnosed, it turns out that her book was one of the first ones I received. And now here we are, 5+ years later, and our paths cross again.
With over 37,000 Facebook fans, I knew I was a long shot since I have 36,720 fewer fans than her.
I’d have to vote for myself at least 20,000 times to make it close.
And believe me I tried.
But after about 10,000 self-votes, my computer crashed and I developed severe hand cramps so I had to abandon my plan.
In all seriousness, her blog is awesome and her writing style is wonderful and if you haven’t checked her out, you should.
And I’d like to salute my fellow nominees, all quite deserving in their own right.
The Celiac Diva “dishes on all things gluten-free.” Her bubbly personality is contagious, she produces interesting, informative videos and she does so much for the gluten-free community.
The Gluten Free Mom provides advice on how to go gluten free and talks about “one woman’s rise from the depths of gluten-free despair to a place of downright enthusiasm.”
The Gluten Free Goddess (don’t you just love all of our pen names?) is all about recipes. But she just doesn’t list her recipes. She writes a story about each one. Great stuff.
Fab Grandma lives a gluten-free live in an RV and her blog is quite entertaining.
So to everyone who voted for me, I thank you both!
And to everyone who voted for somebody else…Mrs. Dude thanks you (she says I already have a little too much personality going on!)
See you at the awards next year.
