Comments: Linda Appleman Shapiro should win because her bloggs are thought provoking and insightful.  I also appreciate the frequency and regularity of her bloggs.
Comments: The essays are timely and thoughtful. I look forward to reading what Linda has to say on the many interesting topics she chooses to write about.

Linda Appleman is consistent and reliable in her weekly updates.  She raises issues that we think about and don't always get a chance to stop and truly ponder ... and then she raises issues that are more subliminal so when she writes them... you think... YES ! that is what's happening, or that's what I feel.

She takes this seriously and I think her love for communicating and reaching out shows through........

Linda always writes on relevant subjects with clarity and compassion.  You will get get something out of each installment. 



Linda has the knowledge and compassion to deal with a subject that is plaguing our society. She brings years of experience and can clearly explain the problems of addictions, all the while educating with caring, and insight the many who are obviously in need of this kind of psychotherapy.

She is more than deserving to win this award!

Comments: Linda ha had this need to expose her feelings, and by so doing, have a better understanding of who she is today. Kudos to her.....
Each Sunday I ask with expectancy, “David, has Linda’s Blog come yet?” It’s a wonderful ritual around our house. So, we won’t call it an addiction, but it certainly has become an altogether meaningful and satisfying habit. 

It’s life in all its incarnations as seen through Linda’s perceptive eyes and understood by her all-encompassing and empathetic heart.

She’s wise, serious, clever and amusing as can be. She’s simply the best psychotherapist, counselor, teacher and profound social commentator who guides us to rational, meaningful, and compassionate understanding along this Journey Called Life.

Oh, and by the way, read Linda’s memoir, “Four Rooms Upstairs,” and you’ll understand how she became the extraordinary visitor who comes each Sunday bearing gifts.
Comments: This writer deals with concerns that reach us with knowledge and sensitivity.
Comments: Linda has my vote not only because of her knowledge in health matters but aslo because of her own hands-on-experience with all the health problems she has encountered herself.  She walks the talk.  Mary
