Welcome! This year we are in the blogs ranked 1000-1750, which to the un-initiated might seem like an also-ran category until you understand that last year we were in the "ranked 8751+" category, so this is a real step up! Anyway, if you are a regular reader, you can vote once a day here. For those new to the site, here is some of what I do here:
