We May Have Lost the Battle but Not the War


***Just let the music play in the background, it'll be okay.***



Dear Loyal Supporters of Unremarkable Files:


It's with a heavy heart that I inform you of the results of last night's 2015 Bloggies awards ceremony. We fought a courageous fight, but Unremarkable Files was not named "best new weblog." 

I know this may come as a shock to many of you, especially those who sacrificed so much of yourselves to ensure our victory. Try not to be discouraged; your effort was not in vain.

I can picture each of you, sitting valiantly at your computer, scrolling down and clicking "submit" on your electronic ballots. Your heroic actions on the day you voted, regardless of the outcome, show the true measure of your character. You made the blogosphere proud.

With the permission of a few of your brave comrades, I'd like to share a collage of readers' selfies taken at the moment they received the terrible news that Unremarkable Files was only a runner-up and not the winner. Thank you to all who sent in your photos. They will help others process their emotions and know that they're not alone.

Keep your chin up and remember: it's always darkest before the dawn. We will soldier on.

Yours,
Jenny Evans
Unremarkable Files

Haha! You're too funny! And yes, I let the music play while I read your sad revelation. Sorry for your loss Jennie...you need an award for "best entertaining" blog anyway lol

Tasha said...

Sorry I spelled your name wrong....Jenny

Haha this made me laugh! Just think, next year you may be winning an award in another category x

It will probably be for "most posts written while children are screaming."

Least likely to be featured in "Martha Stewart Living?"

There can only be one winner but it doesn't mean you lost!

I don't really know you I just blog hopped here. The music was quite soothing because I also have five kids that are usually screaming the place down. They will be crying at your loss; either that or I sent them to bed ;)

Oh so sorry to hear that hunny. There will be more and you are doing such a wonderful job. Thanks for linking up to Share With Me. Happy Easter! #sharewithme

Glad I could be of service. Also that your first impression of me was that I'm a loser.
