As a writer, peer awards are prized. An award by others in your field is a stamp of approval that you are doing all the technical things correctly (a big relief, and also hard to self-judge).
However, a reader’s choice award is the most humbling, encouraging, and rewarding. Writers and authors write for you the reader (and for ourselves) and sometimes it is very hard for us to know if we are succeeding. A reader’s choice award is that approval.
I would like to thank Ms. Walsh and Ms. Burdette for helping to make our web site a better web site. I would also like to extend to both of the authors an open invitation to contribute to our web site in the future.
Thank you ladies you have both been greatly appreciated by us all.
And now the winner of the 2012 Reader’s Choice Award goes to:
Ms. J.G. Burdette
Please join me in commending Ms. Burdette and Ms. Walsh.
