Well, for a while I was in fourth place in the blog0mania, but it looks like I’ve lost that spot. A newcomer to the contest has cranked in the votes and overtaken me. A lot of those below me are gaining, as well. Oh well, if I can at least keep in the top 25 that will be good enough for me. (And of course, even if I don’t, nobody ever died from being the 27th most popular adoption blog.
I’ve clicked through to a lot of blogs on the list, and it’s an interesting mix. There are a few first mother blogs, and I think one or two adoptee blogs (and at least one of them is both adoptive parent and adoptee). A couple of them are for organizations. Several are professional bloggers–folks who get money or stuff in exchange for their blogging (though not a lot of money or stuff, I don’t think). A few are prospective parents who are mostly blogging to fundraise. A lot are religious.
It’s funny. I’m professionally (both meanings of that word) religious but not a religious blogger. (shrug).
All told, I’m just really grateful that 400 votes were cast so far in my name. It really means a lot.
(And no, it’s not over–you have until June 21–you can vote once per day , although sometimes they kick you off if your computer is on the same network as someone else’s)
