My blog, Devas T. Rants and Raves, has been recognized by one of the sweetest people I’ve met in cyberspace during my first year of blogging. Author, Rinda M. Byers, has honored me on her blog with The XOWANGA Award for 2005. It is given by Xangian bloggers (bloggers who blog on Xanga) to express great exhilaration and excitement. Rinda is the sole judge of who gets this award, and that’s fine by me because I can’t think of anyone who has buttered my ego more by leaving positive comments the way she has.
Rinda has described my blog as having provided her with "so many enjoyable reading moments throughout 2005!"
I'd also like to thank a few other bloggers who have supported me in various ways. Some have highlighted my post on their blogs, others have added me to their blog rolls, and many have regularly left supportive comments. (I know there's many others, but I'm looking at the children's publishing community): Cynthia Leitich Smith, Chris Barton, Varian Johnson, Kim (One Over-Caffeinated Mom), and Susan Taylor Brown. Ya'll've made my blogging experience that much more enjoyable.
