Weblog Awards

Holy shit. I didn’t even know about it until I saw the comment from Konagod (nominated for Best New Blog, by the way), but it looks like this blog is among the nominees for Best LGBT blog in the Weblog Awards. (As you might have noted from the newly placed badge on the sidebar.) I don’t think that’s ever happened before, as far as I can remember, at least not with the Weblog awards.

The only thing cooler than being nominated is being nominated in the company of some of my favorite bloggers, like: Keith, Pam, and Jim. At this point, I don’t care if I win anymore. It’s nice to get a nod every once in a while.

There are a ton of nominees in all kinds of categories. Interestingly enough, they have categories from the best of the top 250, 251-500, 501-1000, 1001-1750, 1751-2500, 2501-3500, 3501-5000, 5001-6750, 6751-8750, and 8751+ blogs. It’s good to see they’re looking beyond the top 100, since it means more exposure for blogs and bloggers that might not get much recognition otherwise. There aren’t any links to the nominated blogs yet, but they’re promised to be coming soon. Still, go check out the nominees. You might find some great new blog you’ve missed reading until now.

Voting starts on Thursday.


  1. It’s nice to get a nod every once in a while.

    Really. You blog hard and deserve the recognition.

    Honestly, I figured if I was a finalist for any category it might have been the 8751 blogs and I would have been thrilled. To be a finalist in “Best New Blog” category, well, pinch me, because I can’t believe it yet.

  3. Way to go Pam! You’ve done an outstanding job over the past year.

  4. Uh … Pam? Darn it, I clicked on the wrong window.

    What I really meant to say was way to go, Terrance. I didn’t find out about it until I your post popped up on my Google Reader. How exciting! I’m very happy to see your great work is getting recognized!

  5. Hey, congrats fellow nominee. I’m just happy to be along for the ride, and to discover all the great blogs in our category. Cheers.
