My blog was nominated for best "patient or caretaker" catagory for this years "Dosie" awards. While I am thrilled to be nominated for an esteemed award like a Dosie, there are also a few other very good blogs that were nominated that I want to give shout outs to. Bloggers that helped inspire me and helped me when I first started blogging, namely, Stephany at Soulful Sepulcher, Gianna at Beyond Meds and Philip at Furious Seasons; and some other ones which I never heard of and never read until I saw this list. Writers who deal with cancer, MS, Cystic Fibrosis, Migraine, Diabetes, and other maladies. All deserving.
So if you like me, vote for me, but if you like another blog, vote for them. It's important that you vote. For me, like I said, I am just over the moon that I was nominated.
If you are also inclined, on the same voting form, they have a separate category for best Observer/Commenter blog. Give it up for fellow NJ boy Ed Silverman of Pharmalot fame. He's awesome. I also like like PharmaGossip, (I follow him on my Twitter feed) because he writes well and he uses Cheezeburger cats. How can you not like someone who uses a Cheezeburger cat?
ETA: The final rounds have been announced. Gianna Kali and Ed Silverman made the final cut, which I am thrilled for both of them. Gianna has written about it at her blog here. Please check out her blog and if you are inclined, vote for her, she is a wonderful woman, and the information and resources she has on her blog about meds and alternatives to psychiatry are incredible.
