Shortly after I wrote my post this morning about my goal of writing more in 2015, I got an e-mail from my Uncle John congratulating me on winning Scott Greenfield's 2014 Jdog Memorial Best Blog Post Award.
I didn't even know that I had been nominated, much less that I had won anything.
To say that I'm happy about the award is an understatement. Scott is a friend that I met through blogging. He's an amazing writer with a mind that works overtime. To win a blogging award coming from somebody who writes like he does means quite a bit to me.
I was also very flattered to learn that I had been nominated by Harris County Public Defender Alex Bunin, which is also an honor. Alex is also a friend that I have a tremendous amount of respect for.
You guys made my day and I can't thank you enough. It was a great way to start out the New Year.
P.S. I also have to thank my wife who edits my posts and catches the vast majority of my grammatical train wrecks.
