Thanks for picking me

CityBeat Best of Cincinnati

I had a big week a few weeks ago. Not only did I sell out the art show, but I found out that I was CityBeat’s Best of Cincinnati 2008 pick for journalist of the year.

I’m quite honored by the distinction – even thought I did not know the category for best journalist existed – and especially because anonymous readers voted for me.

To those who took the time to fill out the survey and chose me, first off, thank you. I really am flattered.

I was so surprised, in fact, that when I attended CityBeat’s “Best of” party that I made a beeline for Editor John Fox. Even though he and I had spoken a few times that week about the column I write for the publication, he had never mentioned it to me.

Turns out he wanted it to be a surprise and that the contest wasn’t fixed. I actually got the most votes of any journalist in the poll. So, thanks again. You made my month! (Sorry I didn’t get this posted sooner. Had my blog not been on the blink I would have written about it when it happened.)
