Thank you for my Silver Award Winner badge - Turkish expat blog

Expat blogs in Turkey
Yesterday I found out that my blog was recognized by as their silver award winner for Turkish expat blogs. This particular blogging competition was so fun because awards were based on nominations. It meant so much to see all of the lovely things my friends and readers wrote in support of my nomination.

I don't know why, but my blog doesn't seem to get that many reader comments, even though my readership has never been higher. Reading those contest comments was motivational!

There are many, many lovely Turkish expat blogs out there, but I would like to give a special shout-out to the other bloggers recognized by They are:

Gold Award Winner: My Turkish Joys

Bronze Award Winner: Ayak's Turkish Delights

Honorable Mention: Canim Benim

Honorable Mention: Ellen in Turkey

Çok teşekkür ederim! Thank you!

Congratulations Karen - well deserved award. I share your frustration at the number of people who visit, read & enjoy your blog but never leave a comment. I have a similar problem except when I write about President Obama's re-election :-)

Sorry for my proofreader's eye, but you might want to tell how to correctly spell the city in which you are currently living ;-)

Karen, congratulations on the award!

Thank you all! Ricky, I did tell that and they did fix it. Sometimes though, Istanbul is called Istambul with an "m" rather than an "n." So I give them credit for an alternative interpretation. :-)

Congrats again Karen! It was a fun contest and good to see you on Saturday! I also am often disappointed by the lack of reader on comments on my blog as well. I mean I'd love to know if people actually like what I write or if it truly sucks. ;-)
