    Hello "Be the Next Beliefnet Blogger" Members and Friends, I posted the following note as a comment under JanaDale's "Meet the Contestants!" journal post. But I thought I would submit it as a separate note too, in hopes that more of you would see it: Yay to us "Be the Next Beliefnet Blogger" contestants! Yay to Dondiegodelavega, InspireCreateConnect (me), Beautiful_Dreamer, Sahvanna_arienta, Ordained, Yogashanan, Bouncybaby, littleoma, RevDorris, yogiabroad, PastorBob, Daphne, ToHoldNothing, Mandalatree, Pastor Rich, Kokopelli, Donna K., Myactivetherapy, lisalan333, SisterLovell, Seeker_22, Jolubarsky, onemotherrunner, Jenniferjeanmiller, michelemorgan, BerneataK, Pastorsus, Dharmababe, Ireland, HekateK, Bdavewalters2, Maggiemcc, Monica P., kassel46, phoenix53, Maggiecross, Beingwritlarge, Mkbryson, Jeanwise, Osuzyq58, Stephanie_Walker, Edy, Bsharp, Bill23, tawonda, C. Neal, belleo, Silentcenter, catboxer, and Jeffcourter! Five of us will become finalists in the contest. But all of us gave something of our time, energy, and insights to the Beliefnet community and the wider world. We all made it a priority to write at least 15 posts in July, and collectively, we put some good things out there. Let's recognize that to ourselves and to each other. Yay, us! For non-contestants reading this, enjoy our blogs! And let us know what you think! :-) Namaste, (See my post entitled "Spiritual Practice in One Word" 7-20-11.) ~Patricia Hatch (InspireCreateConnect)
