Katie Allison Granju

Through the years, there have been many influential people who have encouraged me to pursue my writing. But none more so than my friend Katie Allison Granju. Though there’s no way I could ever possibly repay her for all the support and help she’s given me, I jump at any chance I get to show her my gratitude.

That’s why I’m so pumped to tell to tell y’all that Katie’s been nominated for the Knoxville News Sentinel’s annual “Best Of” poll in the “Best Blogger” category. And rightfully so. Any of her umpteen trillion followers will tell you, Katie’s the real deal, a true blogger who’s stood the test of time. She’s been on-line for well over a decade, folks, yet in all her years, never has she been more brilliant than during the past few months while chronicling the tragic story of her son, Henry, with uncommon candor, bravery, and beauty. She’s using her platform to make a difference, reaching tens of thousands of people all over the world in hopes that her family’s nightmare can prevent another family from a similar fate.

So go check out Katie’s blog now! And once you do, make sure you vote for her as Best Blogger in East TN. Because she’s just that. And more.

Congratulations, Katie! I’m so proud of you. This honor is well-deserved!

John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as DisneyBaby, Babble, YahooShine, TLC and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. He and his wife, Caroline, live with their five children and spastic dog in Knoxville, TN. Nothing annoys him more than joke-heavy bios written in the third person, with the possible exception of Corey Feldman.

    So, I found Katie through you. And I love her blog. Went back and read ages and ages. Cried for hours over Henry, and cried again over the birth of her new baby.

    Voted, because I think she’s amazing. And thanks also, for steering me in her direction. Also? I think I love to say the word also. Either that or I just simply can’t shut up.

    I have to also say that when I found Katie (also loving her blog), I back tracked and read for most of the night into the early hours of the morning (off work due to school holidays), and many tears fell over Henry, over the birth of the new baby, and just over the courage she displayed and is still displaying through it all – I don’t know if I could or would have been that strong.

    I have also voted because it takes alot of strength, courage and sheer git to keep delivery the way she does – well done!
