Best Blog in 2009!

THANK YOU EVERYONE! Wow, thanks so much! This makes two years running that the Strange Maine Blog has won in this Best of Portland category. Huzzah!!!

You can read the Portland Phoenix's write-up of the blog here.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the award ceremony for my moment of triumph, because I was on a week's trip to Amsterdam (photos here on my Flickr site). But I hope a few of you made it to the party all the same!

How about adding a link to the phoenix to the home page?

Thanks everyone! I couldn't have done it without you.

Shameless-- Hmm, I remember a similar comment appearing around the same time last year. Well, let's see. The Phoenix still isn't weird, but they are definitely making a strong effort to cover Maine-related issues now, which makes me very happy. So yes. I will finally add the Phoenix to my News Links!!!
