Woman Honor Thyself Wins The Blogger Halo Award!


Voting ended this morning at midnight 12:00AM (CST). There were 140 votes cast. Only one vote per voter was allowed. Angel of Woman Honor Thyself won with 54.3% of the votes (76 votes). The runner-up was Debbie of Right Truth with 25.7% of the votes (36 votes). Congratulations to Saint Angel and Saint Debbie!!!

I can say without reservation that Saint Angel and Saint Debbie are well-deserving winners. Saint Angel has been a faithful reader (often leaving comments) and she has always given this blogger encouragement . And Saint Debbie offered advice and hands-on help when I needed it this week.

This has been a wonderful experience for me as well as for the many of us who wanted to have a way just to say “Thanks” to those veteran bloggers who have selflessly helped us navigate this crazy blogosphere. In reality everyone is a winner. Every nominee is a winner because they have gone way beyond the call of duty by demonstrating a selfless commitment to help other bloggers solve their blogging problems. Everyone who made the effort to place a fellow blogger in nomination is a winner for just showing gratitude. And everyone who dropped by to vote is a winner because they cared enough to say “Thanks.”

This was a brain-storm-not-even-a-shoe-string effort that suddenly came together when the idea first dawned on me a little over one week ago. We couldn’t have pulled it off if it weren’t for a couple of blogger’s who helped design The Blogger Halo Award Logo. I want to thank Saint Debbie of Right Truth for designing the logo that delightfully captures the sudden joy we all feel when a total stranger extends a helping hand to pull us up through another blogging challenge. I also want to thank Saint Spree of Wake Up America for creating the hot-link code for the logos, and for always being there to patiently answer my endless questions. Saint Spree’s constant hands-on help was the inspiration for this award.

To the other nominee Saints that I personally haven’t come to know as well yet, I just want to say that you now know that someone out there cared enough to nominate you and to vote for you because you cared enough to lend a hand when someone was in need.

This experience has taught me so much about the real kindness of humanity – especially of those who reside here in the blogosphere. It’s all about sharing what we’ve learned from others along the way and about building a real sense of community.

This morning I’m looking forward to the 2nd annual Blogger Halo Award. I hope you are too! We’ll have plenty of time for refinements and improvements. If you have suggestions or would just like to help, contact me at faultlineusa@yahoo.com .

Any nominee who would like to have a copy of the final voting poll screen shot, contact me at faultlineusa@yahoo.com and I’ll sent it to you.

The Blogger’s Halo Award 2006

There are a number of Halo awards on the internet, but I’m suggesting something quite unique here. The “Blogger’s Halo Award” would go to the blogger who has not only created a vital up-to-the minute blog with a sizable readership and dedication to excellence, but this blogger would have gone way beyond the call of duty by demonstrating a selfless commitment to help other bloggers solve their blogging problems.

My nomination for this newly created “Blogger’s Halo Award” goes to Wake Up America.

When I began to express my frustration to other Beta Bloggers about not having trackback capability, Wake Up America’s Spreeezie came to my aid. There was a flurry of e-mails as Spree patiently answered my endless questions and held my hand. Spree sent me HTML codes and gave me explicit directions. But beyond that, Spree actually got my trackbacks going! I owe it all to Spree!

Now we bloggers are a somewhat egotistical lot – thinking that the world needs to hear what we have to say. But, when you discover a blogger out there who is willing to go the extra mile for someone they’ve never met . . . to take time out of their busy day . . to actually do it for you without even wanting to take credit for it – that’s a Blogging Saint.

So Saint Spreeezie, you are the first nominee for the “Blogger’s Halo Award 2006!”

Let’s hear it for Wake Up America! And if there are other Blogging Saints you would like to recognize, leave a comment or trackback here.
