Several days ago, I received the following award from the founder of Feedspot.com, an RSS content reader that saves time for people doing internet searches by sorting out the top content in various fields for subscribers’ feeds.

Here is my response…
Thanks Anuj. I’m not a huge fan of badges, but am glad your panelists chose my blog. In all honesty, I don’t know what qualifies your team to determine which blogs are best. The first thing you say about palmistry in your description is false –
“Palmistry, or Chiromancy is the claim of characterization and foretelling the future through the study of the palm, also known as palm reading or chirology”.
No serious professional palmist predicts the future! I don’t want to be grouped with those who support that idea.
I have also read some of the other blogs that you have rated as top and don’t agree with your assessment. It appears that you are looking for people with substantial followings (for whatever reason) to promote yourself.
I’ll be happy to mention the award to my followers, but I feel cynicism and skepticism about this award and most awards in general. I have won many awards for many things over many years and rarely mention any of them to anyone.
Be well, mark
Needless to say, I haven’t heard back.
Your response was wonderful. With what little knowledge I have of palmistry, I rate you number 1. Happy turkey day!
