We are the champions my friend...
When I first began blogging in October of this year I had no idea of what awaited me. As I began meeting the good people who participate each day in the marvelous world of the blogosphere I knew that I’d become a part of something important. Actually, it was more than important, it was something good.

Before Time Magazine found the goodness of what so many of us already knew was happening here, I was already naming many of you “Individual of the Year.” You deserved it! Each and every one of you...
Of all the awards I’ve received this year this one came as the biggest surprise. Hell, I didn’t even know I’d been nominated. But, in all humility I can not accept this award as an individual. This has been a team effort. I couldn’t have been named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year without the help of those in the trenches.
It was you who made me the Dirk_Star I am today.
As this year comes to an end and we stand together upon the precipice of new one, I promise to continue performing at the top of my game in the coming days and make you proud. I will not consider Time Magazine's award a burden, rather; I will consider it an inspiration to do my very best in each and every word that I post.
Again, I would like to thank all of the small bloggers who helped me get to where I am today. On behalf of you all, I accept this award.
Thank you, Time Magazine; you couldn't have picked a better person.
