    Congrats, big time!

    btw I voted for you, so since I helped you get it, that means I own like 1/250th of your trophy.

    Congratulations J$, this is amazing news, you definitely deserve this. You put in a ton of time helping to educate people on your blog (oh, while entertaining us as well!). I can’t wait to see the pictures of your new awards shelf you surely have in the works!

    I voted for you and I’m proud of my vote and the outcome. You’re successful because you write from the heart AND how you talk IRL. I’m glad we met how many years ago now online and that your passion hasn’t ceased; it’s only grown stronger. Congratulations! You deserved it!
