    I was reading the list and smiling at how such great blogs were shortlisted and then about fell off my chair when I saw llm calling listed under commentary. I’ve been suffering with such awful depression for so long that I didn’t have the energy to tell anyone I’d appreciate a nomination. I’m so thrilled, in fact this could be a cure for depression, thanks guys xxxxx
