Thank you!

Today I feel as if I've had a nice pat on the back, exactly at that spot where my shoulder has been causing me so much trouble the last few months. This morning I woke up to the Official Final Results of the Preditors & Editors* Readers Poll "best ezine editor" category.

We managed to take first place after all! Thank you to everyone who voted. It was so close that I had no idea if it would be enough in the end. And for those of you who have absolutely no idea what I'm referring to, I also co-edit Metazen with six other hard-working editors, including of course Frank Hinton, the mysterious creator of Metazen.

And congratulations to the editors Matt Potter, David Barber and Michelle Elvy (who, I guess I can say it now, I nominated! You're great, Michelle!). They all made it into the top 10. You're all more deserving than I am.

Again, thank you to everyone who took the time to vote for me or any of the editors above!

Now to the future: The next two weeks, I Must Be Off! is going to be transformed into the >Language >Place Blog Carnival, so don't be shocked if the place looks very different for a while. There's going to be a parade of links to blogs, to old friends, to new friends. You'll see. I hope you'll stop by and see what's up.

I must be off,

*Preditors & Editors is a site that offers helpful information to writers, often at the risk of being sued. 


  1. Hey Chris! I went looking for the interview and found this. Very lovely of you to mention all this, and WOW I did not know you were the one who nominated me. I appreciate it so very much. And also quite happy for your big win here. Yay for everyone on this list. Excellent editors, all. Cheers from here...
