I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I've been so nervous that I haven't eaten in three days, so I'm desperate for a sandwich right now. Between this and the cotton candy, I think I might have a marketable diet plan on my hands here.
Anyway...It's official, folks! The Spaghetti Westerner is the 2011 Blogger Idol (and, it just so happens, the first Blogger Idol ever!) Woot!!
You can watch the official announcement video here. It's long, but there's some super funny vlogs from the other contestants included, and it's worth a watch if you've got the time.
I really and truly mean it when I say that I could not have done it without the support from all of you. I'm not just trying to give some cheesy speech where I pretend like I care about everyone who needs to be thanked...I honestly just really DO care about everyone who DESERVES to be thanked. And that's all of you. So, thank you. I want to give a special shout out to The Mommy In Law, who called me after I watched the video because she figured I'd be alone (I was) and want someone to celebrate with (I did)! How awesome is that?
I'd love to be able to give back to any of you that I can, so let me know if there's a way I can help you...now or down the road. And, in the spirit of giving back, if you have a few minutes to spare, check out this post. The organizer of Blogger Idol is helping a family in Pennsylvania who lost everything in a flood a couple days ago, and I wanted to help spread the word!
And now, I'm getting a sandwich. But, I promise to be back (and to actually have the brain capacity to write on my own blog now that Blogger Idol is over!)
Oh yeah, did I mention: THANK YOU!!!
