besthike blog awarded … some kind of award

Should I feel honoured?

TB_walking_F We’ve been selected for a Tripbase award for …

… providing one of the best Walking/Backpacking-related blogs out there. …

We feel your blog is an excellent example of what a blog should be and trust that you feel proud in this respect. We congratulate you on your achievement and are providing you with a badge to display proudly at your own discretion on your blog as a sign that you are in the top echelons of the blogosphere. …

We were selected in a 10-way-tie for 11th place. (Not exactly the top of the podium.)

Still, there are some excellent hiking blogs on the list including:

2nd http://www.tommangan.net/twoheeldrive/
3rd http://www.tripleblaze.com/blog/
4th http://gambolinman.blogspot.com/
5th http://www.hikingtaiwan.blogspot.com/
9th http://www.floridahikes.com/blog/
Finalist http://frankinoz.blogspot.com/
Finalist http://northerncaliforniahikingtrails.com/blog/

Unfortunately, Tripbase has combined hiking blogs with backpacking blogs. This award winner: Students in Europe truly has nothing to do with what Tom Mangan writes about, hiking.

I won’t get too excited about my 11th place (tie) ranking until Tripbase separates hiking from backpacking.

I’ll exercise discretion.
