You could have knocked me over with a feather when I got the email from Road Trip Journal last week!!! I won!!! I won a $100 gas card for my Blue Spring State Park article that was featured on their site and up for the April Reader's Choice award!! Apparently I won with just over 30% of the vote!!! I never win anything, so this was such a great surprise!
I didn't prepare a speech or anything, but I'm sure if I didn't win I'd start out by saying what an honor it was to be nominated. But since I won, I can honestly say that I'm as happy as a hot chicken with a cold slice of watermelon! I want to thank all of you who visited Road Trip Journal and voted for my article - I think it's a fun little blog with lots of great travel stories from a traveler's point of view, and hopefully I'll be able to submit more blog entries to it in the future.
