"When this site was originally evaluated in October of this year, I fell in love with its simple beauty, relaxing atmosphere and content. Since that initial evaluation, this webmistress (as with all good designers) has continued to work on her site, and improve on the coding and design without losing the original purpose - which is why Vanya Melda is deserving of our SOTY award for 2011."
"I loved walking down the path of your site with you! Such a peaceful place in this wild world. Step by step through the pages, I drew a breath of fresh air. It is nice to view a site that is so different from the many out there! The writing of the stories is excellent and leaves the heart warm. This is a bookmark site, it is a place to view over and over, and not get tired of doing so! Thank you for making a site so beautiful!"
"A lovely place that makes time stand still for a while! Minutes slide by so restfully visiting this site, it leaves a peaceful feeling while there.

This site shows a high standard of quality which all site designers should strive to achieve. You have taken the time to make your site of interest to all, with an eye to detail and with an imaginitive mind. Well done!"
"Dear Tasarwen, your website Vanya Melda is something very special in the www. Thank you for sharing with us.
Life can be very hectic if one forgets to stop and smell the little flowers along the way. You give the visitor many opportunities to not only smell the flowers, but to enjoy the whole life. It is important to live well in the quiet routine of life; to fill a little place and go on cheerfully with the small routine of everyday life, you say. You present poetry and stories to lift the heart and sooth the overloaded brain. One can easily get pleasantly lost in this site and forget about time and worries. It is a site well deserving of a MOON AWARD of Excellence.
Congratulations and keep up your wonderful work."
"This is a lovely site full of calm and beauty. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the poems, especially the one about the cat (of course). Visitors should make sure to review and then try some of these recipes, the site owner is thoughtful enough to provide a link for a printable copy. Thank you for asking me to review your lovely site and I look forward to seeing what changes time will bring."

"How true the words..'a respite in a busy world'. A shining site of peace on the web. I loved the design of this site for it's restful look. As I journeyed through the pages, I read some of my favorite author's poems that still stirs the soul. The short stories section was also an area that left great meaning and reflection after reading them. They had such profound messages to bring forth. The journal section was well done and a good read. Bring out the old pots and pans for some good recipes on this site too! Yummy! This is a nice site to Bookmark and visit again. Well done!"
"What can I say to describe my feelings about this wonderful site… grace for sure, grateful to have been privileged to visit such heart-warming literature… so profound, so truly honest…absolutely amazing. I often regret I do not have more applicants with just literary content rather than other content, because nothing can stir the mind as a good story, tale or poetry… But then I get a site like yours, and it makes it all worth longing for…"
"It remains an infinite pleasure to visit this site again and read all the wonderful stories and poems, just as it has been on my first visit. This site is truly an oasis of serenity and reflection in an otherwise busy normal day. Well done!"
