    I haven’t checked out this site yet, but it sounds like a little sneakier way to get you to advertise them. I’ll report back when I’ve checked.

      I have checked this site now, and on the assumption that there actually is a genuine public vote on this, I will put the badge on my front page. I mean, we all are at least a little bit vain.

      Besides, it looks like the rest of the blogs on this site are not the kookiest ones I’ve run into.

    Hey Velska,

    Hate to break it to you but I think that Blog Award is a complete scam. Their site is just trying to get people to sign up for PhD programs and there was no public vote that I could see. Also, I tried to go to “bestbloggers.org” and it seems like it isn’t even a real site.

    Keep up the great work though!

      Did you notice I did say it’s probably an ad site for online diplomas.

      Also, I did say that in August 2010. Then there was some signs that there had been some kind of a vote and the site bestbloggers.org still worked.

      It’s time to take it down, anyways, so thanks for reminding. I hadn’t noticed your comment there… got stuck in moderation. I don’t usually modify comments, unless there’s clearly ad hominem attacks or shocking vulgarities.

Falling Forward

Day by day, step by step, I become a little more unbroken. And though sometimes I fall…I’m forever falling forward.
