Not necessarily in that order...
First, I'd like to extend a heartfelt thank-you for everyone's support in the MedGadget 2007 Medblog Awards contest, which closed out late Sunday night. It was an honor for DiabetesMine to be nominated in both the Best Medical Weblog and Best Patient Weblog categories. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first time any patient-blogger has been nominated for the former, so that was a special treat.
Second, an equally heartfelt congratulations to the winners, who racked up the popular votes:
