Thank you for entering the contest! I also need to thank you again for being such a strong supporter of blogging, and this contest, in particular. Through your selfless efforts it is VERY successful.
As usual, your writing is a beautiful expression of the unique man who has taken blogging to new heights.
I agree with you, blogging is tough, rewarding work. You have taught us all so much, from how to check "stats" to how we should respect the views of others.
Keep on blogging and making us laugh, cry or think. We are all richer by clicking onto your blogs!
I think everyone is a winner, tough choices made tougher by friendships.
My picky points?
1. "feed-back" doesn't need to be hyphenated.
2. There should be a comma after "Furthermore".
3. "Whether we are rich or poor, white, black, brown or yellow, we share one thing in common; our love of the written word and our need to communicate those words with others." Isn't that more than "one" thing in common?
Good luck my friend,
