first ever
Friendless Site of 2005 trophy is...

9. And the winner is... is the envelope...
7.just a second... hands are trembling...
5..I better do one more quick tally of the votes...
4. hold on...
3. maybe, I should go to the bathroom first..
2. ...
1. Uh-hum, and the winner is...

...our very own Stephen of From the Edge to the Center!!!!

He is at the back, playing his baritone.

Here is what the FFMB liked about Stephen's blog:
  • this quote by Stephen, "I promised myself I'd have everything figured out by the time I turn 35. While that's not going to happen, obviously, I will accept the things I can."
  • "I like the blog title and graphics. He seems like a nice guy."
  • "I loved his pictures, graphic and the fact he wrote a novel."
  • And I, Carol the conductor, want to point to the original review of From the Edge to the Center
Everyone go and congratulate our buddy, Stephen, the winner of the prestigious FFMB award for 2005.

Stephen, how about an acceptance speech?

Stephen says, "Holy cow, folks!! What can I say...I I appreciate all the support. I'ts good to be a part of this group. I love all the blogs listed in FFMB...I posted on this site for a while without a single documented pair of eyes ever seeing anything I wrote. It's nice to know someone looks your way...Thanks, everyone!"

What a great turnout at the polls.
Team spirit abounded.
Everyone ought to be proud.
Now go find me some more friendless sites for 2006!
Get your banner now.
The cost may go up in the new year.

Thanks everybody for making this first award ceremony such a success!

Thanks for all the submissions, Sister Celtic!
