Blog Post of the Month for April 2008 – Sponsored by O2

Monthly Blog Awards sponsored by O2

The light went out. This was nominated by a few people and I think this text from one of the people that nominated the post covers why it’s deserving:

The post “The Light Went Out” moved me to tears and made me get in my car and go home for the weekend to spend much overdue time with my parents and grandmother. And for that alone I’m grateful to Grannymar for putting up such a personal post.

Grannymar also wins a swanky Nokia N95 thanks to sponsorship by O2 and Nokia Ireland. The trophy is now on the way to her to add to her collection. Don’t forget there’s still time to nominate posts for May. The May winner will be announced early in June.

    I am totally lost for words. Thank you once again to King Damien for the idea behind the ‘Blog of the Month Award’, and to all those who nominated me.

    I have said it before and I say it again; Commenters are the life blood of blogging. You are the people who inspire me on a daily basis and feed my thoughts with topics and subjects to blog about.

    OK MS Elly, you proved that ‘granny could blog, podcast and a zillion other things’, now can I go back and sit in the corner? I have taken the steps and there is no return.

    Ah heck, you can read this again on my blog later on!

  5. A well deserved recipient!

    Well done GM ๐Ÿ™‚
