Michael Totten

Blogger of the Year

The Week magazine announced its annual Blogger of the Year award and I won it, along with cartoonist Josh Fruhlinger of Wonkette. There must be some glitch in the universe because somehow I beat Michael Yon who also was nominated. If I were a judge I would have picked Yon over myself, but this is not a complaint, nor is it false modesty.
Many sincere thanks to the panel of judges in my category– Glenn Reynolds, Jeff Jarvis, Nick Gillespie, and Alex Pareene.
Thanks also to my wife, family, and friends for putting up with my long absences. And thanks especially to you, my readers, for donating expense money through Pay Pal. Without you I would not be able to do this.
I’ll have more dispatches from Northern Iraq shortly. Then I’m off to Kuwait and Baghdad with the United States military.
