Honor roll

By Libby

I'm still recovering from human contact overload today. In the last three years I've spent the bulk of my time alone in front of a computer. It was a big adjustment at first. I went from interacting with dozens of people every day to virtual solitude, pretty much overnight. But you get used to it, so spending two and half days in a total gabfest with my sis and the family kind of wore me out. The non-stop conversation was fun, but a little overwhelming.

Anyway, I'm settling back into my little quiet routine and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Newshoggers was honored with a Monkeyfister award and we're in the company of some esteemed bloggers on that list. How clever of me to have associated with such fine blogging partners that I can ride their coattails to acclaim.

Equally thrilling, or perhaps a little more so, since I was singled out on my own for this honor, Jon Swift included me in his 2007 roundup of best blog posts. I was expecting this one, since he asked us to pick our own but nonetheless it's gratifying to see my name up there with such a stellar collection of really great bloggers, including of course, Jon Swift himself who happens to be the best satirist in the business.

I can imagine how long it took to put that one together. Recalling the one time I hosted a Carnival of the Vanities, I can tell you this was truly a Herculean effort. Thanks so much for putting this post together and including my humble little blog Jon.
