best blog in cleveland (and for once, not just according to me)

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

so last week i'm sitting at work when i get an email from cleveland magazine's marketing director lisa letting me know that cleveland's a plum had been chosen by cleveland magazine readers as the best blog in cleveland.

cue hand over my mouth screaming at my desk.


cue me jumping up and running into my bosses office to share the news.


cue me emailing all my girlfriends and texing my mom.


cue me having the shittiest perma-grin on my face for HOURS after i read the email.


for those of you that are longtime readers of mine you know of my mild obsession with getting the plum mentioned in cleveland magazine.
it was one of my new years resolutions, and even though they wrote a whole blog post about my blog i wasn't letting them off the hook till i saw "cleveland's a plum" mentioned in the glossy pages.

and in the october 2009 issue i got my wish and i can't thank every single one of you enough that voted for me.

it actually makes my cold black heart all warm and fuzzy.


best blog in cleveland - it's kind of surreal.

especially so when i got my hands on an actual copy of the issue and saw what the best blog category was listed under...



personalities and entertainment... me? well that's hilarious in and of itself.

and then, AND THEN, to be listed above friggin' brady quinn and LEBRON JAMES.

hilariously rad. giggle-worthy in fact.

in all seriousness though, i can't thank you all enough for taking a few minutes out of your day to click through to my blog to read about the ramblings and often time mess that is my life in cleveland.


but now it's time to celebrate with the other best of cleveland winners.

on friday october 16th at 7pm, cleveland magazine's best of cleveland party will be held at the rock and roll hall of fame. buy your tickets online today in either the VIP or general admission variety.

it's guaranteed to be a good time and an awesome opportunity to meet the winners, eat the winning dishes, toast with the winning cocktails and celebrate all things cleveland.

i'll be there, so you should be too.

cause y'all know i'm going to milk this award for all i can get - duh.

thanks again cleveland, as always, you rock.
