'we're number one'... all of us!
recently the design blog home rejuvination held a...... contest? ran a poll? how do you say it. they asked people to vote for their favorite blog. or the blog they felt was the most informative and inspirational in the design world. the top 10 winners were certainly no surprise and all well deserved (congrats to you all!). HOWEVER. i will say this to everyone. this poll thing means nothing. it was more or less like a parlor game. i say this not because i wasn't a chosen one..... but because i dont' want it to dampen any spirits or discourage. there are so many, many amazing blogs out there. it must have been a close call. this blogging? this thing we do here? is an expression of our creativity. it's not right or wrong. not better or worse. i believe each of us has our own unique neighborhood of readers who find a friend in our 'voice' who connect with our sensibility and aesthetic.

in the mean time, check out the interviews with the 'winners' and get inspired!
