I’m so excited!
I got an email from Nichelle at Dance Advantage that the results of the Top Dance Blogs of 2013 contest were in. It said:
The Results are up: http://www.danceadvantage.net/2013/02/02/top-dance-blogs-2013/
Attached are your badges!
Excuse me? Badges? As in plural!?!?!?!?!?!
YEP! That’s right! My silly ole blog earned #3 overall top blog AND, Editor’s Choice! Honestly, I secretly wanted the Editor’s Choice very badly, maybe even more than winning! So I couldn’t be more thrilled.
It has been an amazing experience participating in the contest. It brought a lot of exposure to my blog and increased my followers. I appreciate everyone who supported me and everyone who voted for Dancing With Stefanie (AKA The Biggest Girl In The Ballroom). I honestly would have felt like a winner no matter what the outcome because of how fun it was to play and because just choosing to participate was a victory.
A special thank you to Colettio Spaghettio for all her help promoting voting! I couldn’t have done it without you!
Yaaaayyyy Stef! Way to GO! Could not be happier for ya!
Me neither! Thanks so much, Marian…how is the book coming?
Congratulations! Glad I was able to vote for you! 😀

Whoo-hoo! Way to go girl!
So much respect for you keeping at it, I know what it’s like to be the “which one doesn’t fit in this picture.”
I take jazz & hip-hop classes today, and often 90% of the room are YOUNGER than my oldest son. In jazz there are few guys, and I don’t fit the norm there either.
While we start from different points, I totally relate to you. Starting dance in my mid 40’s makes it a totally different challenge than the majority of young guys around me. Maybe like you, I was very unlikely to become a dancer, and never thought it would become such a central part of my life.
I was a pro musician in my 20’s and watched everybody else having fun on the floor. Took me 25 years to start getting in the game. Not always easy, but worth it.
Just keep at it, so much respect.
See you on the wires!
Hey Don! Thanks for the kind words and major congrats on the Dance Advantage Win! I love your story and your passion for dancing!
