Whoo hoo!! MC snags Best of Suncoast in two categories!

And I owe it all to you!

For the second year in a row, the Creative Loafing Best of the Suncoast Readers’ Poll named me as Best Local Columnist. I’m a goofy kind of gal (whoops, does that sound too Palin-esque?) and things like this make me goofily (yes, I know that’s not a real word) happy!

So, of course, I’m TOTALLY psyched about it — particularly since I haven’t had the privilege of a regular IN PRINT newspaper column since May of this year — just the sporadic appearances in the Tampa Tribune and the recent Sarasota Herald-Trib pick-up.

I consider this “blog” a column as well, though — an online column — and in the category of Best Blog, MC’s Reality Online came in second! This little blog is averaging about 80 unique visitors a day so far (after just launching in late August) and I’m really grateful that so many of you take the time to visit the site occasionally to see what’s new. Feel free to forward the link to this site to anyone you think might be interested — in fact, I hope you do!

BIG THANKS to everyone who took the time to log a vote for my writing. It means a lot to me, has made me smile today and given me a reason to justify that piece of chocolate cake sitting down at Morton’s Market with my name on it. And fingers crossed, it will eventually mean something to an editor somewhere … someday … and I’ll get a job in print again!
