Making A Mark achieves #2 in Top Ten Blogs of 2010!

I'm very pleased to say i've only just found out that the very nice people at awarded Making A Mark the #2 spot in their top 10 list of blogs in 2010 back in December!  See Top 10 Blogs of 2010

Top 10 Blogs of 2010.

An unashamedly subjective list of the best art and culture blogs of 2010. From travel bloggers to photography fans – who made the grade?
I'm extremely flattered as the top 25 art blogs in the UK is produced using various statistical and objectives measures of popularity and hence I've always been very pleased to rank high in that (Making A Mark is currently #3).

It's also very rewarding to get their completely subjective evaluation prize too!  :)

I'd also like to thank everybody who have been commenting recently to say how much they enjoy my blog.

This news is even nicer on what has been a completely stress inducing day!

This morning I became very fearful that the men driving very large excavating machinery - who are clearing a site next to my home for development - were excavating very large pits far too close to teh root system of an extremely large protected lime tree which is about 50 feet from the window of the room where I sit - and immediately adjacent to the party wall.  Frantic emails and telephone calls and me screaming like a banshee at the people driving the excavators resulted in the excavations stopping only minutes before too much damage was done to the root system.  I had visions of the tree toppling on top on my home - and me!

Back to normal service tomorrow.  I've now managed to secure fencing to protect the tree roots which run under the party wall onto the adjacent site!


  1. Congratulations! (On both achievements! :-)

  2. Congratulations! Very interesting and entertaining blog and it's obvious a lot of work goes into it - good for you!

  3. Hurrah! For the blog, very well deserved, and for the tree rescue, congratulations all round.

  4. Congratulations!- for the blogs and for rescuing the tree :)

  5. Trees and artists everywhere endorse the award and your spirit, Katherine.

  6. Many thanks everybody.

    I'm also very pleased I saved the tree too! :)

  7. Congrats on the Top 10 position and a huge CONGRATULATIONS for saving the tree.

  8. Congratulations Katherine! Your blog is wonderful.
    I'm sure the tree would hug if it could.

  9. Congrats Katherine!!! Well deserved!!!



There are lots of very silly people who don't understand that Google is not stupid and that links posted to a Blogger comment are:
