Award-winning blogger second year running


hiv-stdLittle did I think as I wrote the short recent post “HIVBlogger.me.uk – telling my positive life” did I think that there would be another quick post about the blog in such a short period of time. Last year HIVBlogger.me.uk was selected by the editors of Healthline as one of the ‘Best of the Web’. The testimonial said,

Michael is a talented, soulful writer with plenty to say. Stop by to leave a word of encouragement or thank him for sharing his story – you will be inspired by his courage, grace, and selflessness.—Healthline Editors

As I wrote on HIVBlogger.me.uk last year,

Reading [that I had got the award] made me cry. I don’t write this blog to get any awards, I write it because it helps me to cope. But this evening, the award has made my day. I suggest that you look at what other sites are there. I know that I will be.

Earlier this week, into my email inbox came an email from the editors of Healthline saying that HIV Blogger: living positively had made it to the 2013 Best HIV / STD blogs list. I was rather dumbstruck. Anyone who knows me knows that this is a rare occurrence. From a brief glimpse at the list of other bloggers most if not all are based in the United States. The testimonial on this year’s awards says,

[Michael] describes his life since diagnosis as “a rollercoaster ride.” His blog does justice to recording it while providing additional resources for support, and even a recipe section.—Healthline Editors

I suppose that I had better get on with the Recipe section.
