With all of your help (and I really couldn't have done it without you all!) I managed to get 9th place!!! in the 2nd annual People's Health Blogger Awards. Your votes also meant that I've been named the top Eating Disorders blogger for the second year in a row! My prizes include the nifty badges below:
Thanks to all 94 of you who voted and commented. I literally copied and pasted all of your touching, wonderful comments into a Word document that I saved to my "Self-Esteem" file, a compilation of emails, words, quotes, and other ephemera that help lift my spirits when I want to hibernate.
This blog is, without a doubt, the thing I am the most proud of in my life. It started out almost three years ago now, just me typing away at a computer as I transitioned from the hospital to a day treatment program and was looking for a place to sort out my thoughts and vent my spleen. I never expected ED Bites to take off, I never expected to have readers, I never expected my blog to last. But it did. And all of you took time out of your busy lives to vote for me, and I am just so incredibly humbled.
And if they had a contest for the best blog readers, well, I know who I would vote for!
