Fourth is good

I came in fourth. I really want to be happy, because that is totally awesome but because they had the five finalists in round two, it feels a bit like a disappointing second last finish. And fourth placers don't get any blog bling. But really, fourth place in the Canadian Blog Awards is awesome!

Apparently folks with IE have been having trouble viewing my blog. I took down the Imagekind widget on the sidebar and the video I'd embedded in my Q&A post, and now it works in IE. I will probably try to put the widget back up sometime and see what happens. But in the meantime, it's nice to have you back. I'd noticed my stats had dropped and was wondering what I'd done to alienate so many readers.

And it feels weird and frivolous and pointless to blah blah blog about this stuff when Mad is waiting waiting waiting for an ultrasound and answers.

Fourth isn't bad at all! You are still #1 in my books--you're amazing.

And yes, m y heart is so heavy about Mad.

I think fourth is awesome. And next year? When more people know your work? You'll be first, I bet.

Yes. It hurt to read Mad's post.

Fourth out of what could be all of Canada is prety astonishing, when you think about it. Good for you.

Oh, and I've been praying for Mad and her baby. Of course.

Ahhh, I wish it had been first.

And our dear Mad, my heart is all broken for her. I'm still hoping, though, hoping to hear something good.

The trick is to stop thinking of it as fourth out of five: your blog ranked fourth out of thousands. (But I know how you feel because that's how I felt for the first 24 hours after coming in fourth on Best Activity Blog. I wanted to come in THIRD, dammit! And I wanted a flag-waving beaver graphic! I felt better after looking around at the other fourth-place blogs, and I realized I was in excellent company.)

Glad I can finally see your blog again.
