Being Included in the Voices of the Year Anthology
By Red Dirt in My Soul on November 01, 2012
If you don't already know, BlogHer published an anthology of our 2012 Voices of the Year. You can download the e-book now! Voices of the Year is always a highlight of our annual BlogHer conference and I love that we've taken our amazing honorees and readers and published them in this book so that I can turn my virtual pages to laugh and cry all over again.
I have also loved reading the reaction to being published from the amazing writers who were included in this anthology. Carol at Red Dirt in my Soul shares why it is important to her:
I don't quite fit in any of those pre-made slots... I'm not a mommy blogger, though I'm a mom. I'm not a photography blogger stuck in ISOs and f stops, though my photography is an important part of this blog. I'm not a craft-of-the-week, or DIYer... though I do that, too. I'm not inspirational or spiritual or news worthy or crude or a fashionista or popular in LA. I'm not even just an agricultural blogger (though, for heaven's sake, try to find that category listed anywhere!) because I don't just write on ranching and cattle and horses and irrigating and haying...
But, still, for two years now, BlogHer has taken the time to reward me with recognition and a neato frito little widget I get to post on my sidebar. I'd like to thank BlogHer, again, for choosing me for Voices of the Year 2012, and for coming up with the idea of publishing the finalists and winners.
