Bless their hearts, those hardworking folks behind the BoB Awards have persevered this week through enough technical difficulties to stump NASA. To all of you who wrote me to say that you had been unable to vote more than once, or (in some cases) unable to vote at all, please don’t be concerned—it seems this was a problem across the board, affecting all the finalists. I am genuinely stunned and honored by the number of Bonny Glen votes which did make the tally, and I want to thank all of my supporters from the bottom of my heart. Wow! This has been an exciting and extremely gratifying week! Many, many thanks to all of you.
Because of the polling glitches, the BoB folks decided to end the voting period as of 4 p.m. Eastern time yesterday. Now the judges will grade the finalist blogs for readability, presentation, and content, and these scores will be added to the points earned by popular vote. This means that it is still anyone’s race. Best wishes to all my fellow finalists. I have so enjoyed exploring some new blogs during the course of this contest, and it has been a pleasure to hear from the new readers who stopped by to check out Bonny Glen. Again, thank you all!
