    Hooray for all the winners!!!

  2. I’m happy that my favorite Seth R. comment won. Congrats Seth R.! Way to put it to patriarchy.

  3. Chino Blanco says:

    Yay! Many thanks to Chanson for organizing the 1st annual Brodie fest. Now I’m off to post links to this announcement on Facebook and Twitter (hint, hint).

  4. Randy says:

    You like me! You really like me!

  5. wry says:

    This is great, thanks to chanson and MSP for just being so awesome. No kidding, I think Chino and chanson are single- (or double) handedly making ALL exmos fabulous and upping our game to new levels. Love to all, and FLAK rocks. 🙂

  6. Equality says:

    I’d like to thank my mom, my dad, my third-grade teacher, my poodle “Puddles” and my Pilates trainer Sven for this honor.

  7. belaja says:

    Thanks so much! I couldn’t have done it without mormonism.

    Does SML get to post one of those award thingies too? Ours was a joint production.

    I guess I will have to re-open the blog, just so I can use my prize.

  8. Froggie says:

    Most awesome! Thanks to everyone who put time and energy into this production!

  9. aerin says:

    There were some great nominees and nominations. Amazing writing (and works of art) by many.

    I hope next year, more nominees and nominations from various places on the internet will surface. There are some very creative, intelligent folks out there with stunning, poignant and funny things to say.

    And here on MSP (or other places) we don’t always get exposure to that. So I will definitely be keeping a personal list of great writing/work – and I recommend others in the post/fringe/ex/whatever mormon community do as well!

  10. Holly says:

    WHEEEEEEEEE! Thank you! I have already placed my award up with a link back here. 🙂

  11. Leah says:

    I am so, so pleased with my Best Exit Story win! Thank you, thank you!

    But I have a question: How do I get the button to put on my site?

    Congrats to all the other winners! This was so fun!

  12. Jon says:

    Thanks for the support, everyone! And thanks, Leah, for the fun neck-to-neck competition over “Best New Blog.”

  13. Andrew S says:

    Sweet! I won something!

    The entries were all really great too!

  14. Hellmut says:

    Congratulations all around!

  15. chanson says:

    Does SML get to post one of those award thingies too? Ours was a joint production.

    Of course — I should have mentioned her artwork.

    But I have a question: How do I get the button to put on my site?

    Normally, you can just right-click on the image of your choice and you’ll get a menu with the option of saving a copy of the image. After that, how to add it to your blog or site kind of depends on which software you’re using.

  16. Mike Reed says:

    Leah–You can also right click one of the images above, go to properties, copy the url address given, and then past the url on your page using the appropriate html coding.

  17. chanson says:


    Everyone have a look at Mike’s blog or Holly’s to see how nice the Brodie award looks in your sidebar. 😀

  18. John Dehlin says:

    Very cool. Congrats to all the winners, and thanks for the nod, ya’ll.

    Larsen — I’m coming after you for next year.

    (With infinite admiration, of course)

  19. chanson says:

    thanks for the nod, yall.

    Hey, it was more than a nod — you won a whole award. Not everybody won, y’know… 😉

  20. kuri says:

    Sweet! Thanks everyone who voted for me. Or even just looked at my blog.

  21. Mercury says:

    Congratulations to all the winners!!

  22. Augustus Giacomazzi says:
