Yours truly gets a plug on OSM

V the K of Caption This! fame brought this to my attention yesterday, since I wasn't exactly in the state of mind to think to look for it. It seems that your humble host received a plug from none other than OSM. That's the Open Source Media, whose mission is summed up by them as follows:
OSM’s mission is to expand the influence of weblogs by finding and promoting the best of them, providing bloggers with a forum to meet and share resources, and the chance to join a for-profit network that will give them additional leverage to pursue knowledge wherever they may find it. From academics, professionals and decorated experts, to ordinary citizens sitting around the house opining in their pajamas, our community of bloggers are among the most widely read and influential citizen journalists out there, and our roster will be expanding daily. We also plan to provide a bridge between old media and new, bringing bloggers and mainstream journalists—more and more of whom have started to blog—together in a debate-friendly forum.
I'm not harboring any delusions of grandeur just yet, nor am I insinutating that this blog is anywhere near as good as those of the big boys (and, in the case of Michelle Malkin and others, big girls). However, it's nice to be recognized by the big leagues of the blogosphere in any capacity.

Also, I must give credit where it is due: (1) Kira Zalan, who tipped me off to the OSM's blog carnival; and (2) everyone of you guys who contribute to the blog by way of your stopping by and by your comments. Thanks, all!

Anyway, here's the link to their blog carnival, with the mention of this fine "establishment" mentioned about halfway down.
