Thanks for all the votes. The Academy are judging them between now and 3rd March, so I could end up in a higher or lower position, but I am definitely a finalist, and by their calculations (votes+content) at the close of the voting portion of the awards, I was third. You know when they say 'the nominees are...'? One of those will be me :)
It has been an exhausting process - less so than for the Ms Twitter contest because we went crazy on that and fewer people were involved, but exhausting none-the-less. There have been developments through the last couple of months. I may have a writing-related announcement to make soon. Keep an eye on the blog.
Thanks again everyone,
