I've certainly been aware of the Weblog Awards in the past and have perused them over the years to find out about some great blogs that I might have not known about. But I certainly wasn't aware that Blabbeando had been submitted as a potential nominee, much less had the chance to be selected as one. Well, it did. And it was!
There is a small window of opportunity for readers to vote for their favorite nominees (January 5th through the 12th) and I'll certainly put a direct-link badge so readers can vote for Blabbeando as soon as it is made available. But in some ways, as with the Oscars, the real win is being nominated since it makes people aware of the blog. Plus there is the itty-bitty detail of being matched up with Joe, Pam, Bilerico and Andy Towleroad as nominees. Beat them for the award? Yeah, right.
Anyhoo: It is bizarre how many of the nominated bloggers I know / have met. Here is a full list of the nominees in the "Best LGBT Blog" category:
- The Bilerico Project
- Pam's House Blend
- Susie Bright's Journal
- Tammy Bruce
- This Girl Called Automatic Win
- Gay Patriot
