I'm thrilled to find that "Connecticut Bob" has gained a mention in the New Haven Advocate's Best of 2008 Reader's Poll last week!
It was cool because someone came up to me after our sailboat race today and said he saw my blog mentioned in the Advocate.
In the section they call "The Best of the Rest", my blog was recognized as getting write-in votes for the category of Best Local Blogger that they don't officially have yet on their ballot.
I'm listed along with New Haven Independent and CT News Junkie journalist Paul Bass, and someone called Hernandez Silicone (for which my half-hearted Google search returned nothing).
It's a rare honor to be recognized among such categories as "Best Parking Spot", "Best Place to Take Off Your Shoes", and "Best Place to Have Sex in Public".
(Hint: one of them is "Beneath the Willow"!)
Thank you New Haven Advocate, for finally acknowledging what I knew all along...
...I'm at least as good as a parking spot!
