Well, the votes are in, and it would appear that CPSM has ended up in the top spot. It was pretty darn close, and I was on the very edge of my seat until the last minute (which seemed to last a lifetime!). I’ve got a whole host of feelings swirling around in my brain and in my heart over this whole thing. It might take a bit to get it all down. Meanwhile there’s a lot of messages and emails to field – and a promised article for a Pagan magazine that’s due today (and it’s not quite finished).
So I will just start with a big ol’ heaping shovelful (a spoonful just didn’t sound like enough) of gratitude. Gratitude to everyone who spent time and energy casting votes, writing letters of support, who defended the Pagan faith (and me personally) through this whole thing that should have just been a blog popularity contest, but that developed into something so much more than that.
I’d also like to extend a little apology. An apology to those bloggers who had nothing to do with this whole mess – some of which might not even have known that there was a mess going on – and probably would have had their blogs in the top 25 if it hadn’t have happened. I’m sure they are disappointed.
All in all, there are 12 Pagan blogs in the top 25. Twelve!! That’s amazing. It’s a show of the strength and unity of the Pagan community and it’s supporters. If we can get together like this for a blog popularity contest? Think of what we could do with something really, really important.
I’ll have more on this later. Still letting everything sink in and thinking big thoughts. =)
