Life's A Race - and now by the look of it, so too is blogging

NIACR'S first annual mediation blog roundup ranked our small fellowship of blogiators* who put themselves out there day after day in the mediation blogosphere.

blah...blah...was said to be:

'Irreverent in tone, this blog ran a close second for Editor's Choice Award. Mediator Blah...Blah... never fails to deliver relevant content with a breadth of information that is very impressive, making this one of the best mediation blogs out there. Packed with useful information, this blog presents its information in a nice, clean, readable design. It's often downright funny, making it great for reading at the end of a tough day'

Note only 'irreverent in tone' - the rest please leave...ahhhh, my work here is done.

More deserving are my compadre's at:

Florida Mediator
Mediation Mensch

Perspectives from a Mediator/Arbitrator
Negotiating Tip of the Week

*Blogiator n. 1. A trained mediator engaged in online commentary and analysis for purposes of discussion, education or the mutually satisfactory resolution of a controversy or dispute. 2. A neutral noncombatant engaged in peaceful online idea-exchange. 3. v. blogiate, blogiating - Andrea Weckerle

P.S. Thanks to the folks at NIACR - nice to be recognised. And to my Mum's bridge four who clicked in and out of the blog to get my stats up in the early days. G

Congratulations, now you can tell your mother someone appreciates your sence of humour! By the way maybe you could get Dr.Turchin to advise on how a mediator can get away with telling participants who have just done the openings from hell "I have had a bad week and I don't need this crap so start again."

Hey, Geoff, congrats on getting very well deserved recognition for irreverent blogiating! And lots of thanks for promoting all those mediation blogs out there, mine included. (Say, maybe, just maybe, some day we blogiators will be numbered in the thousands instead of (just barely) double digits.)
