i made it to the top!

i'm a top blog award winner!! woo hoo!!

i received a congratulatory email yesterday with the good news:

Congratulations! Your blog, The Accidental Yogist, has received our 2010 Top 45 Yoga Blogs award!

Winners were chosen through a scoring system led by internet nominations, which came from your reader base!

the website link explained the voting criteria:

The 2010 Top Yoga Blog Awards are brought to you by Online Nursing Programs & Awarding the Web.

The award winners for this category were announced on July 19, 2010.

This award highlights the very best blogs about yoga on the internet as selected by the internet community and our judges, and is designed to thank the authors for their contribution toward the world wide web we all use & enjoy.

Awards candidates are selected using two methods:
- Audience nominations
- Our team of research associates scouring the web

After a list of candidates is compiled they are each scored by our panel of 5 judges. Each judge rates each blog across 20 different attributes providing it with a ‘subjective’ score. These ratings are combined into an aggregate, and the aggregates of the 5 judges are averaged to give the blog its final rating.

The ratings are then compared, and awards are given out to blogs in the 99% percentile (meaning the top 1% of blogs receive awards).

such an honor!! and i even have a snazzy new badge on my page to prove it (it's way down there towards the bottom of the right sidebar...)!

here are the other yoga blogs who made it to the top... congratulations to all!!
