Please help boost my self-esteem through meaningless internet awards!

Hey, a million thank yous to those of you who have already voted for me in the Brodie awards. These are awards from Main Street Plaza for great work by ex-Mormon bloggers during 2009. I have a comfortable lead in the Best Exit Story category (thank you!), and had been neck and neck with USU SHAFT for Best New Blog, but they've pulled ahead! If you haven't voted yet and you like what I do here, please, please, please go vote for me!


If you enjoyed this post, I hope you'll check out my new blog.


  1. I write for the SHAFT blog, and I quite enjoy our little competition over this award ha ha. And while I'd be thrilled to win it, I must say that I'd be honored to come second to you as well. This is a great blog and you should be proud of it.

  2. Jon, that is incredibly gracious of you! I, too, would find no shame in coming second the the SHAFT blog. Watching LDS General Conference so you don't have to got my vote for the best humor piece! It will be fun to see how this pans out!

  3. Voted. Keep up the good work :)

  4. Congrats on winning best exit story!

    I suspect something fishy happened in our competition, though. Not because of anything you or I did--I just think something quirky at PollDaddy.com happened. I don't know how else to explain the activity in our poll--1400 votes? Really? I'm skeptical...

    Moreover, I don't know how it was that I was able to catch up to ya--you were leading in the poll the vast majority of the time.

    Hmm. Well, in any case, congrats on your award. I'll be sure to direct some of my readers to your blog, because I like what you have to offer.

    Take care!

  5. Jon,

    I think we both had some overly enthusiastic fans who really wanted us to win! On the one hand, shame on them! On the other, it's kind of sweet of them to sell out for us.

    It really could have gone either way with the Best New Blog award. It was so close through most of the polling. I'm very pleased with my Best Exit Story win. Congratulations on your awards as well!
