Blabbeando named as a 2008 Weblog Awards Finalist

This was totally unexpected: Yesterday morning Monica Roberts, who authors the TransGriot blog, e-mailed me and congratulated me for being named as one of ten finalists for the "Best LGBT Blog" category in the 2008 Weblog Awards.

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:

Andres,
I remember my sophomore year at UH when we said roughly the same thing about some school named NC State we were playing for the 1983 NCAA B-ball championship.

As long as you're in the game, you've got a chance to win.

Congratulations!
