"Mountaineer" wins Associated Press award

That's me on the right.
The Associated Press Society of Ohio announced last week that "The Iron Mountaineer" is one of three finalists for Best Blog.

(Here's a link to the full story.)

I am completely humbled and honored - and excited!

I am also pleased to be a finalist for Best Online Photojournalist, as is my colleague John Cropper at the Wilmington News Journal. Meredith Creek, a colleague at The Times-Gazette, is also a finalist in the Best Blog category for her blog "This Side of the Creek."

The Times-Gazette's website, which I administer with my colleagues, is a finalist for Best Website. Congratulations to the Wilmington News Journal and to the Record-Herald on their many nominations, too!

Thank you, thank you to the readers of this blog for taking time to stop by and read my thoughts. Your visits make it all worthwhile!

With gratitude,

- Lora Abernathy
