Who, me???

Yesterday, I was sitting around playing on f.acebook when an old college friend began to chat with me. Or so I initially thought. He told me he was stuck in London and needed money. Oh, right. The sarcastic bitch that I am, I typed back to this 'friend', "That's so strange! I got an email from my aunt last week saying the exact same thing! Is she with you? I didn't know you guys knew each other!" So, yeah. I reported it to fb and also his email provider.

So it's understandable that when I read the email I got today I was skeptical.

Congratulations! Sarah here, and your blog, You Call Me a Bitch Like It's a Bad Thing, was determined to be one of the best blogs to exude overall brilliance. And so, it has received our 2010 Top 40 Infertility Blogs award presented by Medical Billing and Coding!
Whaaaat? Medical Billing and Coding? Seems fishy...

...but it is a .org, so with further investigation, it turns out it's for real! Somehow, my brain-dump has been voted to be pretty interesting! :)

On their website, they explain:
With Medical Billing and Coding, a lot of the work is done at home, or on people's own time. With this growing trend, there are bloggers on the inernet who contribute to this amazing at home community, and we want to recognize these bloggers. At the same time, there are so many medical issues out there that people are dealing with and blogging about, that we would love to recognize what they are doing. They blog because it is their passion, but we feel that not only are they pouring out their heart as they blog, they are comfortable enough to let the rest of the world know if they are dealing with a disease or health complication. And we appreciate their boldness.
Well, thanks! And thanks to anyone who may have nominated me! Even thought this blog started as a way for me to connect to others and keep track of my own stuff, it's nice to know others appreciate it!

Yay, me!

Congrats on the blogging award...that is very exciting! Also, I have a balanced chromosome insertion, which I believe is similar to an inversion. Not that I would want anyone else to have it, but it is nice to know I am not alone.

Hey congrats on the award :) sorry I'm so late commenting.

I actually got the same or a very similar award email around the same time you did. I ignored it because I was very sceptical. How did you figure out it was for real?
