Attention! May I have your attention please!

At this time I'd like to call your attention to the little button on the upper right hand corner of this Lil blog.  By now you've probably already seen the links and shares on Facebook, but if you aren't on Facebook, or if you're not as focused on the autism blogging community as many of my readers are, you MAY not have seen that Babble posted its list of the 30 Top Autism Blogs in honor of April's 'Autism Awareness Month'.



What's Babble?  (In their own words), "Launched in December 2006, Babble already has a National Magazine Award nomination for Best Overall Website (opposite Slate.com) and a Folio magazine award for Best Online Magazine (beating out everyone but Time.com). Time magazine named it one of the Top 50 websites of 2010. Babble was acquired by The Walt Disney Company in November, 2011. 

Oh...and the reason I'm bringing this all up is because ...I'm ON it!!  Me.  Little Jimmy Walter!!!  And when the author of the article it was in linked me to it on Facebook, I was reading through it thinking to myself..."okay, that's sort of cruel...I'm not even on this list, way to rub it in my face" until I finally spotted myself!  My problem was I started from the end, where, if we're being honest, I probably belong if at all...but instead...I was all the way up near the tippy top!  THE TIPPY FUCKING TOP!!!

I consider this to be awesome.  I deflect a lot of praise and absorb too much criticism (like many people, I think), but this feels good to me.  This makes me feel proud.

It's a list that has many of my favorite bloggers on it and I'm honored to be among them.

Thank you Babble!

  6. woot woot!

    all i can think of is that school yard chant (words switched up a bit, of course...):

    little jimmy walter was writing on his blog.
    he thought for a moment and then wrote the best post.
    i said ooh boy do your thing.
    do your thing, write!
    i said ooh boy do your thing.

  8. Well, of course you were on this list. If you weren't on this list, I'd have to go bust some kneecaps.*

    (*I wouldn't really do this, as I didn't know this list existed before today. Still, the sentiment stands.)

    In all seriousness: congratulations. No one deserves it more than you do.
