Joe Carter, one of my favorite bloggers, has won the “Best Religious Blog” category of the Weblog Awards, 2005. Mere-O garnered a healthy 98 votes, which is encouraging, given our competition. Thank you to all those who helped us stay ahead of Mere-O friend Charles Lehardy!

In other news, I am going on blogging hiatus for the rest of 2005. I am disappearing tomorrow to finish a project I have been working on for some time–a book that I am hoping to vanity publish (thanks for the term, Jon) in January.

Finally, starting January 1st, watch for exciting changes here at Mere-O. 2006 is going to be an exciting year for Mere-O, and we’re eagerly anticipating its arrival!

  • I’m predicting a surge of votes in my favor when they count the absentee ballots. The Carter machine is powerful, but I still think I can beat him.

  • I told you I’d be first in line, vanity or not.
