Blog of the Year

This is what I woke up to this morning:

Blog of the Year
Almost Diamonds
Stephanie Zvan makes her voice heard through her blog Almost Diamonds. Her writing is consistently incredible: insightful, thorough, on point, and funny (when appropriate). Everything she writes is from an atheist, secular, intersectional feminist, and social justice perspective. This year has certainly been a busy one for social justice in the secular community. Stephanie’s posts tackle issues from multiple perspectives deconstructing and analyzing varied subject matter; her methodological and precise writing is educational, informative, and engaging.

I’m tickled, particularly to be in the company I am in the Secular Woman Membership Awards. I don’t know what to say, except thank you to everyone who thought I earned this.

    no less impressive for fact that you do it while constantly dealing with lectronic turds thrown by lectroinc primates in the lectronic primate house. or was it turds throwng turds?

    A well-deserved win! You have a knack for thoughtful, heavily researched posts. I’m still impressed by the connection you found between Ron Lindsay and an obscure feminist blogger.

    Secular Woman did a great job with its awards across the board. I learn a lot from all the Freethought Blogs I read, but yours is the one I value most for its insight about what is wrong with the status quo and especially about how to fix it.

    Congratulations, Stephanie! I think this is not only a tribute to the high quality of your blogging but also the variety of topics you cover. Amongst the other winners in the SW awards this is very well-deserved recognition.
