I learned two things on Facebook this morning. The first is that I apparently won an award in 20102 for being one of the 50 best blogs for authors. This is literally the first I have ever heard about that award, but while it is very cool to win an award the news was overshadowed by how I learned about it.
It seems that back in 2012 some helpful soul created a page on Facebook for this blog. I was already on Facebook, yes, but someone thought my blog needed a second page so they scraped my about page for content, and crafted a header image touting that award.
While it is possible I might have forgotten making that page, I would certainly remember the banner. It is partially made from a screensnap from the site’s then-current theme. Also, there’s no way I would use that profile photo, or the text on the bio page.
I still do not know why someone did this, or who, so I am hoping someone will be able to help me chase down the origins of that page.
Who’s up for solving a mystery?
