Dark Globe’s Blogger of the Year: Photo Finish

That's me in the middle.

Thank you from the bottom, middle and top of my heart to all my loyal fans for voting for me in Dark Globe’s Outstanding Artist Contest, Blogger of the Year Award. Being nominated was an honor. Being one of five finalists was beyond my wildest dreams (well, some of my dreams are pretty wild, but you know what I mean). Now I have the pleasure of telling you that the race was so close that three, count ’em, three top prizes were awarded in my category and I was among the three. Yup, little old Lorna’s Voice that came on Β the scene in half-way through the year won 2011 Blogger of the Year!

I feel honored to be in such fine company as Harry from The Dribbling Pensioner and Pete from Evolution of InsanityΒ who also received the Blogger of the Year award.

A big thanks goes out to Dark Globe who developed and organized this contest.

This is a splendid way to start the New Year!

Well, I didn't win Outstanding Dancer of the Year Award...

Congratulations … great way to start 2012 with an award well-deserved, your ‘Midnight’ poem I’ve just commented is a standout and an example of your blogging prowess, I have a feeling it’s going to be a very special year, Lorna, thanks for your courage and graciousness always evidenced in sharing your memoirs, cheers catchul8r molly

  38. Everything works out in the end, no matter how it works out. At least I know that you had my back in spirit. Our bond of friendship is forever forged!

  39. You must be right about Pete. I never stay up to ring in the New Year and booze is way out of the picture for me, so I was up bright and early. It is nice that we were all winners.

  40. Many thanks. I really am honored.

  41. Al, you’re too cool for school!

  45. Well done, Lorna!!!! You got my vote.

  46. YES!!! (Cyber fist bump) Never a doubt!

  47. Gratz Lorna, you Truly Deserved to walk away with an Award Under Arm…

    Happy New Year!


  48. Lorna, we all won, its great that there are 3 winners and it must have been every close.

    Now i must go and right my speech πŸ™‚ and get the badge up on site.

    Pete must still be in bed with a hangover from last night.

  49. Lorna, apart from being glad that you won, I am so glad that you won.

    Why? I wrote you glowing reference days ago only to find, literally minutes before deadline last night, that it hadn’t shown up. Was mortified. What a way to let the old year go before the new has had time to draw a breath.

    Paranoia, inner dialogue: Oh my god, Will Lorna forgive me? Will I forgive myself? Don’t be ridiculous, Ursula, and stop taking yourself so seriously: Her victory hardly depends on your vote, does it? Yes, no, what if it did? Will I have lost a friend in the making? How tenuous are bonds? How tenacious? Play the tape again…

    Thanks for putting me out of my misery. Congratulations. If you hadn’t won – well let’s not speculate what I might have done. Designer sack cloth and ashes.


  50. Congrats on your win. It is a good way of breaking into the new year and a happy one to you and family.

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
